I have another message of this same content. Let me re word just exactly what it is I
want. George Washington Jones born July 11 1842 Platteville Grant County Wisconsin died
Dec 23 1917 Hulett Wyoming; on Feb 14 1862 married a woman by the name of Eliza B Liscum
Liscombe Liscom in Grant County Wisconsin. I am not sure which spelling it actually was.
They had seval children a couple such as Anna and her brother Henry were most likely born
in Wisconsin. Henry in fact was born Nov 10 1876 in Lancaster Wisconsin. Perhaps Anna was
born there too. The rest I believe were all born in Iowa. I am not sure but the last
place they may have lived is in Dickinson County in a town called Melford or Milford.
Eliza died of the measles or something like that and with her she took the last born a
girl by the name of Onona Pearl Jones. I estimate the deaths occured in the late
1880's as Henry was 11 at the time. What I want to do is to locate the rest of the
family. The family was facing money problems so after Eliza's death George left and
the kids were scattered about. Henry to name one family lived with the Doolittles of
Milford or Melford Iowa. Does any one know how I can find the rest of the family. Later
on henry married Clara Wickstrom in a city called Wahpeton I am not sur where that is and
they both died in South Dakota in the years 1953 and 1954. That is all I know. Henry
and Clara had about five or more kids. Mabel one of their own died when she was about 14.
Again can any one help me locate the rest of the family?
