In Reply to: Louis FJones and Lela Craven Texas and Mississippi by Christel McMullen of 65330

Hi Christel,
Although Lewis Frank Jones death certificate says his parents were Lewis Jones & Sarah Smith, I believe that to be inaccurate. Remember a DC is only as accurate as the informants knowledge/remembers. Keep in mind Lela died in 1930/31.
I believe his parents were most likely Thomas A Jones & Mary Ellen Smith.
