Recently I've become acquainted with a a group of Joneses who are doing a YDNA study for you guessed it JONES! Since I have a direct male Jones (or 2) willing to do the test I've jumped in. Here are is a list of my confirmed JONES ancestors.
This list is for collaboration with the JONES YDNA group and anyone else who may be connected with this line. I am also going to list the children, in a separate post, for these lines; as many of my ancestors had 7+ children; I'm 99% sure there is a child or 2 missing from these lists. If you are a part of this JONES line please feel free to let me know if a child is missing and also - Please let me know if there is an error and where I can confirm the new info.

 George Washington JONES b. 16, Aug 1890 d. 13 Dec 1962 (photo of George here: )

   m. Lula Leanna KILGORE (HUTCHINS 1ST marriage) b 29 Apr 1890 d 25 Feb 1983.

George was probably born in Calhoun or Etowah Co, AL (based on his parents living in and moving around this area). He and Lula lived in Gadsden AL; he is buried in Crestwood Cemetery.

George was a son of:
Andrew JONES b 1862 Jefferson Co, AL d. 22 Jan 1936 Ball Play, Cherokee AL.
  m. Victoria CARTER b 1861 GA d 25 Nov 1936 Cherokee AL

Andrew lived in Polk Co, GA (after the death of his mother), then Andrew is found in Calhoun, Etowah and Cherokee AL. He and Victoria are buried in Crossville Cemetery, Crossville, DeKalb Co, AL

Andrew was the son of:
Belson JONES b 1822 York Co, SC d 1894 Polk Co, GA
 m Mary Ann JENNINGS b 1826 SC d. 1862 Jefferson Co, AL

Belson and Maryann were married 30 July 1846 in Benton, Co, AL (now Calhoun Co). After that they are found in the Jonesboro area of Jefferson Co, AL. MaryAnn died in 1862 sometime after the birth of Andrew. Bleson then married Martha (Louisa) Murry in Calhoun Co, AL; the family is next found in Floyd GA, and then Polk Co, GA. He is buried in Jackson Chapel Cemetery, Cedartown, Polk Co, GA.

I think (still confirming) Belson was the son of: Benjamin JONES Jr. b 1795 NC d aft 1870 Jefferson Co, AL
 m Mary ROSS b. ?? d aft 1870 AL

 Benjamin Jr was the son of: (I'm still confining this info so please take with a grain of salt). Benjamin JONES Sr. b NC d SC

Slow to return

I know I said I was giving this a shot; and sadly the past couple of years have left me a bit to scatter brained to dig into the family files. I am going to start posting more pictures I have of my ancestors; these photos shouldn't be sitting in boxes and not being viewed by others.

Picture Mystery Solved

Below is a picture that I have of unknown ancestors. Well, they were unknown to me and the little piece of paper that was taped to the back that listed these people had long since fell off. The picture was in with all of the Lloyd/Adams papers and pictures so I figured they were somehow related to that line. When I was last in Wilcox county Alabama I did drive around looking to see if there was a porch that had the same wood work pattern as shown in the picture, no luck.

Left to right, front row: Mrs. William Eugene Lloyd, 
Claudia Lloyd Stanford, William Lloyd Lazenby, 
Martha Barge Reynolds. Back Row: Ella Lloyd Lazenby, 
William Holt Lloyd, Mary Frances Reynolds Lloyd, 
Emma Reynolds Lloyd, Emma Reynolds Smith, 
James H. Reynolds, Harry Lazenby.

This month I finally made a trip to Salt Lake City for a few days of family history fun. While searching for more information about my ancestors in the Wilcox County Heritage book I found my picture printed. Yep, I almost fell out of my chair and I did want to jump up and down with joy.

My little mystery is finally solved, the bearded, balding man on the left is William Holt Lloyd (1841-1912), brother to my great great grandfather James B. Lloyd (Mr. J.B as he was known is mentioned in several of my earlier blog posts). Yeaaaaaaaa. I finally have names to put to the picture, and I only had to travel to Salt Lake City to find him. Now that I do have a name for him I can see the family resemblance when I look at pictures of J.B. Lloyd.

I have a few more finds I'll post over the next couple of weeks.

Salt Lake City finds - still sorting

My trip to Salt Lake City was great; though I could have stayed an extra week or two in the library. I'm still sifting through all of my finds and figuring out where I stand with a few of my ancestors. I did have a few great finds that answered a few questions and of course a most finds have led to many more questions.

As soon as work lets up a little this week I will post about finding out the names to a group of people in an old photo I have. Yep, had to go all the way to Salt Lake City to find the answer.

Going to Salt Lake

I received news yesterday that in September I'm going to Salt Lake for 3 days. Yep 3 days to explore the Family Search Library. I'm super excited and yet a bit panicked; I thought when I planned my trip I'd have more planning time. Oh well, I'll get all my research ducks in a row and hit the ground running when I get there.

If anyone reads this that has been to the library in Salt Lake and has any advice to give I'd greatly appreciate it.

Jumping back in

Well, it has been a rough year and the past 6 months have been spent in a haze of grief, but I'm jumping back into my genealogy research.

I've took the plunge and started a tree on Wikitree. I'm entering the 1st few generations by hand since I have way too many weird notes in Reunion for Mac and I'm not sure how to keep those notes private when doing a Gedcom download. My tree is slowly growing and I'm trying to figure out the html codes to make the sources look nice and pretty but info will be added.

Thank you all for your kind words after my last post and for the handful of private messages that were sent to me. And if there are any distant cousins out there waiting for my return, feel free to message me any time. I may not have been very active in the Gen world lately but I will always enjoy meeting distant cousins.

Ok, all for now, I'll have a real Gen related post up soon.
