I recently have found my great uncle Charlie Judd that died in 1921 in Terre Haute, Vigo Co., IN. He was married to a Alice Ann Jones daughter of John Paul Jones and Manerva/Minerva Dodge of Caseyville, Union Co., KY.

I do have Minerva's parents names Joseph Curry Dodge and Julian/Julia Ann Collins and they are both buried in the Old Bethel Cemetery in Union Co., KY. I am looking for information on John Paul Jones and any siblings that Alice might have had.

She did have the following siblings that I found in the 1870 and 1880 Union Co., KY census:

1870 Caseyville, Union Co., KY
Jones, John P. 26 (1843 KY)
Jones, Mary F. 20 (1849 KY)
Jones, John T. 1 (1868 KY)

1880 Caseyville, Union Co., KY
Jones, Paul 37 (1843 KY)
Jones, Manerva 31 (1849 KY)
Jones, John T. 12 (1868 KY)
Jones, Joseph J. 9 (1871 KY)
Jones, Ina A. 3 (1877 KY)

Alice Ann Jones was born Aug 30, 1881 or 1888 on 2 of her marriage records she has 2 different years she was born. She married first to a JUDD and we seem to think she was married to my great uncle Charlie JUDD and he died in 1921 so she married a 2nd time to John A. Nail in 1923 (it list her as a JUDD and a widow going into her second marriage) then a 3rd time to Sam Wigley in 1924.

Her and John must have divorced cause he didn't die until 1954. I have requested his death certificate. Now in Terre Haute, Vigo Co., IN Charlie Judd is buried in the Highland Lawn Cemetery and buried next to him is Alice Ann "REEDER".. (she died July 29, 1945) not real sure where the REEDER name came from... but she is buried in Lot 15 Section 250 5 1/2 and he is buried in the same section and lot.. and the person at the cemetery that sent me the files said that was his wife.

Alice Ann Jones and her parents were born in KY and lived in the Union Co., KY area in the 1870 & 1880's and she went to IN where she lived for 3 of her marraiges..

Charlie Judd came from Adair Co., KY and went to Indiana possibly after he was in the service. Anything would be appreciated.. Thanks in advance
