Please join our effort if you are descended from ANY of the people in the following
John Jones b 1800 and Mary (Polly) Brown b 1799 married in 1823, she, the daughter of
Fleming Brown and Elizabeth Whitehead.
Fleming Jones b 1824
Daniel Jones b 1830
Silas Jones b 1830
Nancy Jones b 1832
Martin Jones b 1836
Mary Jones b 1840
Court records show that standing with them
when the marriage license was granted in 1823 was
Fleming and Elizabeth Brown (her parents), and Lemuel and Tempy Brown
Who were Lemuel and Tempy?
A check of Halifax County VA records on the day Lemuel and Tempy Brown were
at the courthouse for their own marriage license 19 years
earlier shows the following:
They were Lemuel Brown and Tempy Jones:
" 21 March 1804 Lemuel Brown m Tempy Jones, daughter of William and
Patty Jones who consent, Sur.* John Chisum Wit. John Chisum and John
Lemuel and Tempy married the next day March 22, 1804 by Rev Thomas
*Sur. means surety, a person who makes himself a guarantor.
These may be a clues to the parents of John Jones first mentioned. We are seeking cousins to help with this research. The first mentioned John who married Mary (Polly)
Brown lists no parents on the marriage certificate, we are in need of help. I am
descended from Daniel who was killed in the trenches at
Petersburg July 30, 1864. There are others descended from Fleming working with me. We plan on having
a weekend research group meeting in Halifax County VA to
organize further research. We hope to find
cousins descended from the other children who are working on this genealogy.
