Hi. My name is Joanne Meyer and I have several generations and surnames in
Jones County. Most are listed on the Jones County Genweb site, but here's
all of them anyways in case anyone hasn't *gasp* visited it yet.
BEAVER (also BEEVER)
I don't live in Jones County, but I live next door in Linn County and could
do lookups if they are few and without a definite time limit. 8)
I have a newly acquired scanner and will be posting new photos on my
website, which is scheduled to be renovated to remove inaccurate info and
info on living relatives. I'll probably be sending you one or two also,
Richard, for inclusion on the website since I finally got the roll of film
developed of my ancestor John Bender's monument to having turned the first
sod in Madison Township. It has the actual yoke used on top of it.

Hello, List. My g-g-grandfather, John C. RAFFETY, moved to Jones Co. in
1834 and bought a farm just outside of the present town of Cascade. He
died there in 1852, but his son continued to live there until 1881, when he
moved to Powashiek Co. His brother, Richard, moved to Jones Co. in 1842
with his large family.
GRAFFORT (or Grafford) is my g-grandmother's maiden name. TAYLOR was the
name of her aunt and uncle, who lived in Cascade. (He was "Judge Taylor".
I believe I may have a picture of him.) John C. Raffety and Thomas
Graffort were founding members of a Baptist church in Cascade.
I would love to share information with other genealogists. I'm interested
in the early history of Jones Co., in the Grafforts and Taylors, and in
corresponding with any Raffety descendants.
Hello all and welcome to the Jones County mail list. Right now we're

county surnames we're researching or other Jones county topics of
interest. My own ancestors include Harrison, Walbridge, Tallman, Buckner
