Hi! I need to see if any one out there can help me. I am searching for my great great grandma and ggg grandma names.
Charles Jones b.1750? Va. came thru NC and had land on Buckhorn Creek in Cumberland/Wake/Chatham County on the Cape Fear River where these 3 counties met at a point. He eventually migrated on to Montgomery County and settled at Badin which is now Stanly County, NC around 1780. He had sons Mark, Allen, and William and daughter Mary and other children who remained unknown at this time. William was my gg grandfather. William was beleived to have been married to a Mary (MOSS OR WOMACK); William's children were Martha, Nancy(m.Westley Tolbert, Talbert?), Mary Ann Jones(m.James Fields?), Robert Mark Jones(m.Earpy Ivey), Crissy Jones(m.Eli Lowry), Sarah(Sally)(m.Eldridge Hall), Allen W. Jones(m. Velina Brooks), Jane Jones(m.Allen Jones), James Jones, Elizabeth Jones(m. Horace Fields) and Baldwin Henderson Jones(m.Sarah Elizabeth Ann Ragland). Baldwin Henderson Jones or "Baldy" was my great grandfather born 1827 d/1902.
Baldwin Jones children were Allen Jones, Robert Henderson Jones, William Thomas Jones(m.Emily Adams Pate), Sarah Anna Jones(m.Joseph Carr Rosser), James Fletcher Jones, Mary Etta Jones(m. John Rosser) and Junius Culbreth Jones b.1872 (m. Ila Hunter, Cornelia Myrtle Yarborough).
Junius Culbreth Jones was my granddad. Mr. June was what he went by most of the time. He had a lead part in establishing the County Of Lee here in the heart of North Carolina and was a well known merchant in community of Broadway. His children were Erwin Culbreth Jones(B.1902)
Wade Branton Jones(b. 1905), Mamie Lee Jones 1909, Ethel Elizabeth Jones 1914, Junius Culbreth Jones or "J.C." 1918,
James William Jones 1920, and Edwin Stanfield Jones 1927.
My Dad J.C. Jones, Jr. is my quest! He died when I was a young child so I never was able to find out much about the Jones family. I have searched the family history on both sides and now have hit a brick wall. I beleive that if I can find out the names of the wives to William Jones (b. 1780) and Charles Jones b.1750, that it may answer my quest. I have looked and researched every possiblility and cannot find a clue to where the name Junius Culbreth came from. It had to be on the maternal side of William or Charles Jones. Also, my great grandfathers name is haunting me as well. Baldwin Henderson Jones is a strange name as well because there are no traces of Baldwins or Hendersons found in the lines I have traced.
If anyone has any info that might give me a lead, please let me know. This brick wall has not moved for the last 12mo. and I am about to give up on this quest! It is really been a let down that I cannot find anything to back this up. I have looked thru Henderson, Baldwin and Culbreth websites and also family books hoping to find a clue but to no avail. My aunt also told me that the family Partin was in there somewhere but again, I keep getting deadends. One more clue in the research papers I have is the mention that William Jones and his son James Jones died on the same day in 1847. It stated that Mary, Williams wife, died in 1846. However, it does not state where they died. Montgomery and Stanly and Moore County had courthouse fires that lost most of everything back in the 1800's so it has been very difficult to find any thing in court documents to back anything up. Fortunately, thru another researcher who contacted one of my cousins on the internet, told of a research paper she had found in the Stanly County library and also a estate on Mark Jones who died in 1858. In these papers is where alot of the above info came from that is actually court documented so at least what I have above is fairly accurate.
Again, if ANYONE has any info on this family, please let me know. I would be very gratefull!!!!!!!
Thanks again! Charlotte Jones Harrington
