RN #154 The Children of Tudor Trevor

This notebook contains a series of detailed charts/graphs/chronology that outlines the children of Tudor Trevor.  It begins with the first generation following Tudor Trevor (JC-1).  It then numbers the generations in sequence.  The following chart is such a page.  It shows Gadforch (JA-1), to Ynyr (JB-1), to Tudor Trevor (JC-1).   It then begins with the three sons of Tudor Trevor (JC-1): Goronwy (JD-1), Llydocka (JD-2), and my specific line (the baby) Dingad (JD-3).  It then outlines the lineage of each branch of this family tree down to my own generation.   It represents some my earliest work on the generations of my family tree using a coding system and coloring system.

Pink was the eldest son, orange was the second son, and blue was used for the baby boy.  A rough chronology is shown to the right.  The color coding was especially helpful as the branches of the family tree grew.

This notebook continues the grandfather's of my JONES family.  Edward Turner Jones was the baby boy of 10 brothers and sisters.  He was born in Madison Co., KY in what then called Science Hill.  He married Ellen Dorcas Henderson December 20, 1893 in her home in Estill Co., Kentucky.  Unknown to my growing up days, she was a direct descent from the family of Richard Henderson who had a few things to do with the Wilderness Road and the settlement at Boonesborough.  This notebook contains my personal notes, family pictures, and a lot of research about Boonesborough.

RN #149 W.C. Jones 1826-1902

W.C. was the first name that got me started along my genealogy travels some 53 years ago.  My grandmother ("Mam Maw") did not know what the W.C. stood for, but he was the farthest that she knew the family tree.  He was supposed to be buried at the mouth of the Red River.  It took me some 20 years to find out the W.C. stood for William Carter, and he indeed was buried in our family cemetery at the mouth of Red River. [Madison Co., KY side where the mouth of Red River joins the Kentucky River.]  This notebook contains some of my earliest genealogy work.  [some from my childhood days]

On the day that my Dad and I found the grave site, I drew the following chart of the cemetery.

The location and position to Red River and Kentucky River is shown in the following map.  It is the junction of Clark Co., Estill Co., Powell Co., and Madison Co., KY.  A great aunt I talked with many years ago told me stories of crossing the Kentucky River here by buggy,  and having her bonnet blow off into the water.   It was near here that Warrior's Path crossed the Kentucky, and one could put a canoe into the water to travel down stream to the Ohio River.


 Here among these pages contain the communications (family stories) that became the bridge between their generation to mine.

RN # 148 Thomas Jones

Climbing on down the family tree, Thomas Jones was the first to stay settled along the waters of 4 Mile Creek.  He was born in Virginia (1796), and an error in the census of 1840 [which gave that he was born in Kentucky], caused 10 years of research climbing out other Jones branches until the trail brought me right back to this Thomas.  Who can you trust in this genealogy world?

This notebook contains my research into this Thomas Jones who married 20 December 1823 to a Sallie Chisom (Chism and various other spellings).  Multiple graphs/maps/family charts are included.  Documents, census records, court records and other primary documents define and describe this grandfathers life.  He died after the 1860 census but have not found a definite date.

Details of the Bush Settlement, Clark Co., KY also included.

The next group of notebooks contain my research into Babington's Plot.  This was a Catholic plan to assassinate Elizabeth I and place Mary, Queen of Scots, on the English throne.  Edward Jones, one of my family members, was involved.  He was "drawn and quartered" September 1586 at Tyburn.  This notebook contains a general history and overview of what had become called "Babington's Plot".

RN #96 Committee For Compounding Alphabetical Listing

This notebook contains an alphabetical listing for the JONES surname abstracted from the Committee For Compounding 1643-1660.  A copy of a page from my notes is shown below.  Family groups are clustered and the counties involved are included.  They were classified as a "Papist", "recusant", and "dissenter".  A "recusant" was one of the Roman Catholics in England who formerly incurred legal and social penalties for refusing to attend services of the Church of England.  A "dissenter" was defined as a non-conformist.

These are pages from my personal research.  It explores which JONES families were on what side of the fence, Catholic or Protestant.
