Second Generation

5. William JONES2,8,17 was born in 1784. William was between 40-49 in 1830 Monroe Co KY Census. He was 26-45 in 1810 so born after 1784 but could not have been born before 1781 if the age is correct in both these censuses.
1850 Dade Co gives age as 65. He died in 1868 at the age of 84 in Dade County, Missouri.

The family of William Jones as given here is based on the assumption the William Jones, son of Charles Jones, is the same William Jones found later in Dade Co MO. Given the close association with the Poindexter family both in Kentucky and Missouri it seems he could not be anyone else.

A booklet "A History of Antioch Church" written by Erma R. Bishop and found in the Dade Co Library states the following: The history of Dade County could not well be written without placing the Antioch Church well in the front. Events will show that in 1844 five families had settled in this part of Dade County, coming mostly from Kentucky and Tennessee. And among those who were most prominent in the first organization are the following names: Willis, Mallory, Farris, SCOTT, Cox, JONES, COBLE, POINDEXTER, Gambill, LOLLAR, Hudspeth and Merrick.

The suggestion that this William Jones may have moved to Dade Co MO is supported by the censuses of 1850 and 1860:
1850 Dade Co MO, p.294, household 454:
William Jones, age 65, born VA
Sarah, age 63, born VA
In household 456 is Rebecca Scott, believed to be a daughter. She has children Henry age 3 and Sarah age 2, both born in MO.

1860 Dade Co MO, Polk Twp, p.44, household #296
William Jones, age 76, b. VA
Rebecca Scott, age 37, b. KY
Henry P., age 13, b. MO

June Term 1869
June 9, p.418 Now at this day comes Joseph G. Payne, administrator of the estate of William Jones, deceased, and makes his first annual settlement. Said administration appears to owe estate $109.31.
[So looks like William Jones died in the early summer of 1868 or so.]

June Term 1870
June 14, p.506 Now at this day comes Joseph G. Payne, administrator of the Estate of William Jones, deceased, and makes his annual settlement, and after all debts and expenses have been paid there appears to be the sum of $99.45 on hand.

This deed would also seem to be part of the settlement of William Jones' estate:
Know all men by these presents, that we, George Jones, William J. Jones, Flem Jones, Charles R. Jones, Nancy Loller, Rebecca Scott, Elizabeth Shram [Shrum], Leean [Luann] Jones, Polly M.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this the 26th day of Sep 1868.
Joseph G. Payne, J.P.

I believe Charles' wife was Jane in this deed, is his 2nd wife. She was "Jennie" in the 1870 census; Virginia in 1880.

William JONES and Sarah [JONES] were married about 1808. Sarah [JONES] was born in 1790 in Virginia. She died before 1860 at the age of 70 in Dade County, Missouri.

Sarah wasn't in the 1860 census; presumably she had died.

William JONES and Sarah [JONES] had the following children:



Mary Sallie JONES.



George JONES.



William J. JONES.



Fleming JONES.



Richard JONES.



Nancy JONES.



Rebecca JONES.



Elizabeth JONES.



Charles Robert JONES.



Thomas JONES18 died before 1868.

Died before settlement of father's estate in 1868. I have not found anything else about Thomas except the following - and he could be a son of Thomas.

1860 Dade Co MO, Polk Twp, Hh 293
William T. Jones, age 29 living in the midst of these Jones families; he was also born in KY and his wife is Mary age 26 b. TN with 3 small children - is this a son of the brother Thomas that I can find no trace of, or is he from another Jones family? He would have been born 1831 and could be the youngest child in the family of William & Sarah, except that they already had a son named William - however the following probate record suggests he may have been called Thomas.
William T. Jones, age 29, b. KY. Mary, age 26, b. TN
John H. 4, b. Mo. Mary F., age 2, b. MO. Amanda E., age 11 months, b. MO.

This is the same family.
