I am researching my family of Jones and I found a reference in the writings of Luke Smith Motehttp://users.ipfw.edu/abbott/family/Churchyard.htm that stated;
Wallace Jones, her second husband. He also came from South Carolina, was once an officer in the militia and also in civil service -- was considered then in the South a pretty fearless, rough man. But after he and his wife and their children come to Ohio they become convinced of Friends' principles and joined the church and were useful in it in their day. His first wife was Rachel Patty, sister to the Patty brothers, who lived here (vis James, David and Charles). She died in the spring of 1828 in the fifty-fifth [year] of her age, but no stone marks her grave. Seven children were born to them, five sons and two daughters.
Is anyone familar with this Wallace Jones and where is SC he was in Civil Service and the Militia?
Thanks for any help in this matter
