Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I am thankful for all the volunteers who contribute to this website, but
particularly for Joyce, who has done such a fantastic job of keeping it
exceptional all these years. It was my go-to source when I started researching
my husband's Jones ancestry 12 years ago. You can be pretty sure you are
tracking the correct person through census records when the name is
"Ephraim Jones", but Robert Jones and John Jones living in Delaware County and
born in Wales before 1800? Not so much!
After hitting brick walls I decided to put it aside for a while and have
recently decided to try genetic genealogy, including a Y-dna test to see if
we can connect with my husband's distant Jones cousins. We are awaiting the
results. Has anyone else done that? Do any of you have ancestors who
settled on Jones Hollow Road just off highway 28 a few miles west of downtown
Robert JONES (1787-1874) married Jane NEWTON (1789-1880) around 1811, based
on the age of their oldest child. Based on land records I believe
Robert's father was John Jones, and Robert's sister was Jane (1782-1856) who
married Samuel MILLS (1778-1863). Based on Robert's probate records, I believe
Robert and Jane Newton Jones had 13 children born between 1812 and 1840:
Sarah, Richard M., Mrs. Catherine SUTTLE, John H., Ephraim, Abel, Mrs.
Elizabeth FISK, Mrs. Jane FIERO, William, Mrs. Permelia BEADLE, George H., Robert
N, and Adaline.
Are any cousins reading this post?
Thank you Joyce for suggesting a Roll Call, and for all the work you do for
this wonderful website!
