Roanoke, Alabama, Summer 1904


John Isaac Jones (who was known as Isaac, and who is in the picture) identified (relatively shortly before his death in the late 1980s) the people in the picture as follows:

Front Row, left to right:
Eunice Bonner, Coy Jones, Isaac Jones

Middle Row, left to right:
Tom Lemaster, Iva M. Jones, Hardy Bennett Jones, Grandma Jones (mother of Hardy Bennett Jones)

Back Row, left to right:
Willis Chappell Bonner, Lula Jones, Rufus Jones, Minnie Jones, Robert Jones

I believe the family arranges this way: Willis Chappell Bonner (19 NOV 1874 - 25 APR 1951) married 24 OCT 1897 Lula Ann Jones (15 MAR 1883 - 14 SEP 1907). Lula Ann Jones' siblings were William Claudius Jones (26 JAN 1885 - BEF. 1900 - not pictured); Minnie Frances Jones (14 MAR 1887 - AFT. 1920) married 12 DEC 1906 George Chappell Murrell (28 JUL 1879 - 28 AUG 1960); Rufus Larkin Jones (13 APR 1889 - JUL 1979); Robert Parrish Jones (08 MAY 1892 - SEP 1981) married Annie (maiden name unknown); John Isaac Jones (10 AUG 1894 - 21 DEC 1989) married unknown unknown; Grady Chappell Jones (born 24 DEC 1897 - not pictured); Edgar Coy Jones (30 SEP 1899 - JAN 1984). The parents of those JONES kids were Hardy Bennett Jones (12 JAN 1857 - 03 JUL 1931) and Ivenona Mudora Willingham (APR 1858 - 1905). If I have it right, Hardy Bennett Jones was the son of John Jones and Mary Lemaster. Tom Lemaster is (I guess) brother of Mary (Lemaster) Jones {"Grandma Jones"}. Willis Chappell Bonner and Lula Ann (Jones) Bonner had four children; Eunice Frances Jones (11 SEP 1898 - 01 JUL 1965) married 11 NOV 1924 Jess Howard Hazelwood (04 JAN 1892 - 09 DEC 1978); Dussie B. Bonner (23 MAY 1900 - 29 AUG 1900); Joseph Grady Bonner (09 MAR 1905 - 12 MAY 1991) married 02 AUG 1924 Mary Etta Williams (14 OCT 1905 - 15 JUN 1992); Lula Ann Bonner (02 AUG 1907 - 01 NOV 1907).
