RN #150 Edward Turner Jones 1873 - 1939

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.
