John J. JONES m. Mary Virginia STRICKLAND on June 11, 1849 in Botetourt Co, VA
Posted by: June Stewart (ID *****7886) Date: November 10, 2002 at 14:36:25
  of 1300

Am looking for descendants of this couple. Mary Virginia Strickland was sister of my g-g-grandfather. Need to know if descendants are still in Botetourt County, VA in 1900 or later census.

Here is census data I have found to date on this family. Hope to learn who the males/females married and also who the Augusta County, VA parents and siblings of John J. Jones were. 1880 census shows John J. Jones was born in Augusta County, VA and his mother Frances R. Jones appears to be living with him in the 1860 census. Do not know if there is Strickland/Jones/McGinnis relationship to the LORD family from New Jersey living in the household in 1850 census.

My g-grandfather William Eleazer Strickland stated that John J. Jones and Mary Virginia Strickland lived on his grandfather's Strickland place near Pattonsburg, Botetourt County, Virginia. John J. Jones & family are shown living with the McGinnis family in the 1850 Botetourt Co, VA census. Mary Virginia Strickland's sister, Rebecca Ann Strickland m. George W. McGinnis November 8, 1847 in Botetourt County, VA and both families are shown living together in this census record most likely on the Strickland girls father's estate, that of William Anthony Strickland.
