One brick wall in my tree is my g-g grandfather - William S. Jones.

He was born about 1809 in Tennessee and died about 1864 in Kentucky (Graves county). He married Elizabeth S. Fikes (daughter of John Fyke & Mary Morgan) in 1837. She was also born in Tennessee in 1816 and died in Graves county in 1880. He came to Graves county in the 1820s, when land in the Jackson Purchase became available.

They had 9 children - Alice (1836-?), Mary Martha (1839-1923), James Joseph (1841-1906), Mary Luiza D, (1844-1904), Elizabeth (1846-1880), William Henderson (1848-1928), William S. (1850-1859), Susan A. (1850-1928) and Sarah Rachel (1853-?).

I have no information on William's parents or siblings.

If anyone has come across William S. in their investigations, I'd be very happy to hear about it.
