I have endeavored
to write a family history that would be different from
JONES of Durant, Ok. was the "very" first one to say
he wanted a copy of the family history; in his home in 1963, his father JOHN
WATSON JONES present. "THEN" I had in mind to make him a
"carbon" copy of what I made....."BUT"
.... as others
learned about it & wanted a copy... "THEN".... That was not
the way to do this. Resulting into what it has.....
If I had
stopped & published the book in about 1972, there would only be about
one fourth of what is being put in the book "NOW". "AND"
is what it is all about- "FAMILY HISTORY", know who your
People did not
respond to calls for "their" pictures to put in the book, as
should have. Therefore, I took pictures of those who would permit me
in the book. I wanted to preserve as many of the old styles in dress
timers, as possible, They were grouped in families as nearly as
"possible", also, considering the finances and the response,
some are not near their part in the book, one will have to find.

in the family; believe me, "EVERY LINE" has them. People are people, and people are "sinful" from the very start of time.
"EVEN" God put the "good" and the "bad" part
about his people in the bible.
All information in
the book is what was sent to me or else it came from
official records. And, is
just as true & correct as humanly possible.
use "WRIGLEY's CHEWING GUN FUN FACTS was given. "BUT" "JENNY WILEY COUNTRY" by C. MITCHELL HALL, he would not give
permission, only to refer to.
There are blank lined
pages in the back of the book for you to use to carry on your family history.
Everyone does not see
& report the same thing of what they saw. Even tho they saw the same thing,
but sees it differently.
I have strived to put
where the information in this book was found,
occupation, trade & other
information, so that it would be easier for one to trace their line further. I
have strived for "perfection", but, I am not a "typist"
& you see it is far from it.
