Looking for information on the following. In Franklin Co. KS there is a marriage for T.U Jones who married Mary (or could be May) Powell, 17 Nov 1886, Franklin Co. KS. E335.

1900 KS Franklin Co., Pottawatomie twp (Lane PO) 79-80
JONES, Thomas U. b Apr 1862, 38yr marr 13yr IL Rents (didn't record parents birthplace)
May wife Apr 1869, 31yr marr 13yr KS 5 ch, 4 living
James E. son Sep 1887 12yr KS
Hettie L. dau Jul 1890 9yr KS
Ethel F. dau Nov 1892 7yr KS
John E. son Dec 1894 4yr KS

There is a John Powell in 1880 & 1885 with family:
1880 KS Franklin Co. Pottawatomie Twp, Lane PO.

Nelson 23 m sing KS KS
Henry 2_?m sing KS KS
May 16 f KS
M. 13? f KS

Edward 7 m KS

I am wondering, is the Thomas U. Jones, (son of William A. Jones and Julia A. Potter, Adams/Hancock Co. IL to Franklin Co. KS) and May Powell the same people as shown above??

Thomas and May Jones may have moved to Sumner Co. KS before 1930's.
Also a Marilyn Lane had posted a query on another board that relates to this family, but alas..... her email address is not valid anymore. Would surely like to contact her.

Thanks so much. Marysue
