My research suggests that William Jones was born in eitehr Kentucky or North Carolina between 1781 and 1821. The North Carolina story says that William Jones had a violent arguement with his brother (name unknown) and left North Carolina for Kentucky. He traveled to Paducah, McCracken County, Kentucky where he married Nancy Lightfoot between 1809 and 1852. Nancy Lightfoot was supposedly born in Kentucky in 1794 and died December 5, 1876. She was reportedly a member of the Cherokee Nation, although some informal reports state she was Blackfoot. After the marriage of William Jones and Nancy Lightfoot in Kentucky, they traveled to Indiana. On May 31, 1844 they had a son named John Jones who was born in Marion, Grant County, Indiana. John married Mary Ann Zeek on November 23, 1867 in Madison County, Indiana. Mary Ann Zeek was the daughter of Andrew Zeek and Eda Stanley. Mary Ann Zeek was born October 23, 1848 in Boon Twp. Madison County, Indiana. She died March 31, 1935 in Gas City, Grant County, Indiana.
As mentioned earlier, I am searching for the beginnings of William Jones and Nancy Lightfoot. If anyone has any information that might possibly be related to either of these two individuals, please contact me.
Thank you in advance.
