Sophia and Leon Jones

I am trying to find information on Sophia Alexander of Mecklenburg, Virginia. I saw her in the Mecklenburg County, Virginia marriage registry. She was married in 1884 at age 16 single to St. Leon Jones age 25 widowed also of Mecklenburg. Sophia parents are listed as C and J.A. I have look throught the 1880 census and could not find a couple with those intials and a child name Sophia. St. Leon parents are listed as R and F.

I saw a Leon Jones age about 20 listed in 1877 that married Lara Alexander age about 17. This Leon Jones parents are also listed as R and F. This couple had two daughters in 1880.

Are these Leon Jones the same person?
Where did Sophia and St. Leon Jones move?
Did Sophia and St. Leon have any children?

I was told that there was a plantation owned by James Young Jones called The St. Leon Plantion. James lived there with is wife Helen Leckie Jones and their children Mary, Robert, Lucy and Batt.
I would like as much info about both of these families.

Thank you
