From familysearch.org. All the RI census data indicate that one of the daughters of E. Fielding and Ella, Eileen Fielding Jones was born in Scotland abt 1898, it appears that they may have had another child in Scotland abt 1896, prior to the births of several children in RI.
Census data indicates they immigrated to the US in 1900, so Edward Fielding Jones and Ella Frend/Friend were apparently married in Scotland.

A death cert lists his parents as being James Jones and "Emma" Smith.
From that I found his birth record in Bonhill, which lists his parents as “ Edward” James Jones and "Esther" Smith. This also led to births of several sisters including a ‘Lizzie’ noted below. Don’t know if that might be the Elizabeth you are referring to or if Jennie is related somehow to Esther Smith.

Not my family, good luck.
