Died before his father's estate settlement in 1868.
Quite probably the Richard W. Jones found in 1860 Dade Co, Polk Twp, p.53, Household 344:
Richard W. Jones, age 43, b. KY
Elizabeth, age 38, b. KY
William T. 18, Luana 14, George B. 12, John H. 10, Josiah B. 8, Charles R. 6, James B. 4, Lydia E 2 - all born in Missouri
Richard Jones and family have not been found in the 1850 Census. They must have been living in MO in 1850 since children were born in MO before that year but they were not in Dade Co. Fleming, another sibling, was in Lawrence Co but Richard Jones was not found there either. The 1870 census indicates that son John was born in Illinois about 1850 - maybe that's where Richard's family can be found.
