Jones Family Genealogy Forum
I am needing help in the worst way, I am looking for information on William H. Jones, I'll tell you what I know or at least what I think I know. William H. Jones was born in Va. sometime between 1780 and 1800, I believe his father to be Joseph B.(probably Black) Jones.I found on the 1880 Tex.census Mary said her mother was born in Ireland. Mary was born in Ky. 10/24/1824. She married William Gardiner Stephens, 12/2/1846, in Kenton Co.,Ky. William was the son of Edward Stephens and Anna Hume Stephens. On the 1850 census of Kenton Co. I found William and Mary living in close proxcemity to William H. Jones and his wife Melinda Stephens Jones, Joseph Foster Jones and his wife Mary Ann Simpson, Samuel Fleming Jones and Susan Simpson Jones, I thought for a while that this Wm. H. was Mary's father but later I found his will and Mary was not mentioned, I also found the settlement of Mary's father's estate in 1865 and Wm. G. Stephens is in charge of the settlement. I found the Wm. H.,husband of Melinda, and his estate was being settled by one of his sons. I also found Foster and Fleming executors of another Wm. H. Jones estate. Too many Wm. H. Jones's. I assumed this to be their father but maybe it was a brother.
Recently I found a death cert. for one of Foster Jones's son and it states that he was born in Madison Co. Ky. I had always suspected this, those Jones are my mother's family decending from Moises Jones, and the family of William H. Jones is my husband's family, they use the same given names over and over. Does anyone have any clues. One more thing, I found a death cert. for a daughter of William H. and Melinda and it had Wm. as being from Bourbon Co. Thanks for any help.
