John born1854 IN listed in 1870 census with
Jerusha I tried Rootsweb World Connect now
to try Family Search for same person. Let you
know what I find. Do not have Ancestry or
Heritage Quest yet.
Thank you so much for this information. The
thing that gets me is her two daughters, even
though daddy still alive (did not die until 1902
Otoe Co NE) buried in Fowlkes Family Cemetery outside of NE City) this
Wm S Jones
signed his name on the certificates of marriage
even before he and Jerusha married.
Thing is the Co Clerks Office did not find a
divorce decree for Peter & Jerusha. Very odd,
yet they married 10 Oct 1864.
What do you make of this? Was said that
Peter was a freighter for the LDS could he
have made acquaintance with someone
else and she quietly divorced him by placing
a notice in the paper that she had filed for
divorce? Still should have been something in
Need help locating information on the FOUTS
family, i.e., Peter and Jerusha's childre of
whom I have only traced Martha and spouse
Wm Cralle Fowlkes, Mary C. & spouse Samuel
Staley, and Sarah Jane and spouse Golias
The others remain elusive other than I believe
the son Jame Emanuel born 1845 died 1850.
Need information on Frances born 1852, Mary
Elizabeth born 1843, and Henry born 1849.
Thanks so much for your help with these
children of Peter & Jerusha.
Unfortunately have not been able to locate
Jerusha and 2nd spouse William S. Jones
after their marriage on 10 Oct 1864. Not in
any Federal Census Index for 1870, 1880 or
Was said that possibly Jerusha was of
Cherokee Lineage. Could her and William
have went to a Reservation somewhere in
IN/OK/AR or other area to live out there lives?
If so where?
Also what puzzles me is that there is no divorce decree for Jerusha
and Peter as they
were together in 1860 census but she remarries
in 1864. Strange puzzle this lady.
That lady was a BECK by birth not the same
lady. Wish it were so.
Was said in a letter written by one of
Jerusha and Peters' daughters to her family
that Mom was of Cherokee Descent. Am
wondering if she and this Wm Jones went back
to IN/AR/OK, two of the girls after marriage went to Payne Co OK and
Searcy Co OK,
Sarah Jane (Fouts) Bonebrake (OK) the other
Mary C. (Fouts) Staley to Searcy Co AR.
If they were on a reservation with either Jerushas' mothers or
fathers' people as I have
never been able to find her parents she may
never be found as Indian tribes had their own
way of keeping track of their own people prior to 1920. Hmmmm
Who was William S. Jones who married my
Jerusha Fouts 10 Oct 1864 in Otoe Co? I
have not been able to locate them in any
census after their marriage of which I have
a copy of the license in my records.
Where did they disappear to? Was said
that possibly Jerusha may have been of
Cherokee Descent, did they reside on a
reservation in AR near Searcy Co where
daughter Mary C. & husband Samuel Staley
ended up at, or Noble/Payne Co OK where
daughter Sarah Jane and spouse Golias
Bonebrake ended up at? Did they stay in
Otoe Co? Not in 1870 census for this area.
When and where did they meet up? Did
Jerusha divorce 1st husband Peter? Unable
to locate copy of said divorce record.
Did Jerusha and William go back to IN where
she was born near or on a Reservation there?
Does anyone know this particular family line?
Is anyone connected to this William S. Jones.
Attempts at finding him in Rootsweb World
