I'm looking for information on Landon Jones, son of John Jones and Mary Landon. The information I have found so far is that John Jones and Mary Landon were married in England. The date of birth for Mary Landon was about 1669. I'm guessing Landon Jones was probably born around 1690 in England. The family moved to Virginia around 1695 when I'm guessing Landon Jones was still a small boy.

It has been reported that John Jones died around 1700 and his widow, Mary, married Alexander Swan/Swann. Alexander had a daughter who married a Jones. I do not know if it was the same Jones family.

I have the Will Abstracts for Mary and Alexander:
