John Adam Crain (J.A.C.) Jones, Sr. (1782-1857), b. NC, was a ggggrandfather of mine on my mother's side and the father of Samuel Daniel Jones (1828-1923), of Panola and San Saba Cos., TX. J.A.C., Sr., m. Martha W. Unknown (b. 1794, VA) in GA about 1812/1814. They settled in Jackson Co., GA, later moving to Talladega Co., AL, and then on to Panola Co., TX in the 1840s. They were the parents of 13 children, another of whom was J.A.C. Jones, Jr. Further complicating the research on J.A.C., Sr., is the fact that there was at the same time (early 1800s) in Baldwin Co., GA, a "John A. Jones," who m. a "Martha Jenkins" there in 1812. Later, at the time the Joneses lived in AL, there also lived in Coosa Co., AL, another "John Adam Crain Jones." Both J.A.C., Sr., and J.A.C., Jr.--as well as Samuel Daniel--are the subjects of bios appearing in "The History of Panola Co., TX," published in 1979.
