RN #250 Jacob Jones VA

This notebook contains my research into the number of Jacob Jones that resided in VA, and NC.  The Seacock Swamp area of VA was one particular group that needed exploration.  Work sheets and a time line for Jacob Jones and other related surnames are included.  Various maps, charts, and figures are stored here.  Harrison, Donaldson, and Pettypool are surnames connected to this area.  Lots of research work included which was necessary to separate the many Jacob Jones.

RN #249 Jacob Jones(es)

Trying to select the correct family tree member is frequent a challenge.  There are often many with the same name, occurring in the same location, and around the same time period.  This notebook contains my research into Jacob Jones.  It was necessary to identify each Jacob Jones [and associated family members] in the same time period.  Who's on first speaking correctly?  It contains a variety of items selected for the name "Jacob Jones".

RN #248 Roselyne Watts Jones

Having done genealogy professionally for a number of years, I have collected a series of notebooks on the subject being researched.   This notebook contains work for Roselyne Watts Jones who's family came to Mercer Co., KY in the 1790s.   She had done a great deal of research on her Moses Jones and the family in Mercer Co., KY.  She asked if I could identify the father of Moses.  A interesting and fascinating story it became.

A timeline beginning in 1780 and the steps taken to research this family is contained.  My own Henderson family tree became involved in this mystery which lead to the settlement of Middle Tennessee and what was to become Nashville.  A Jacob Jones chronology is given and host of research materials is included.  This research crossed three states including NC, VA, and TN.

Part I is Moses Jones, Mercer Co., KY.

Part II is Jacob Jones, Fort Union, Red River area 19 May 1780.

Part III is a grouping of folks who were related to the story.
