I see Alice's line goes back to Standifer. If you go to Carol Yarbrough's site -- http://carolyar.com/ -- She has gathered a ton of material on all spellings of that surname. I have a Texas Standefer line going back to TN and then on up into VA.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Jones, Buck, born 1855 + or - five years, spouse Alice Scott. Someone else is working on this line, too.

Note on Maudie's DC her father Buck has a middle initial of J. On the 1860 census Bastrop Co, TX:

Jones, Elishe, 24, b TX - no land/personal 350
" Mary (?), 23, b MS
" James J., age not clear, b TX
[Could this James J. be Buck?????]

Happy Hunting (^_^)
