He was living next to Archibald Poindexter, probably his brother-in-law.
George Jones' wife was Louana as given in the 1850, 1860, and 1880 Censuses of Dade Co. Their sons James, William & Elisha as shown in 1850, have households of their own in Dade Co in 1860. There was also a daughter Sarah.

[From the births of the children it would appear they had left Kentucky for Missouri about 1836, stayed a couple of years or so, then went back to Kenrucky until after the birth of Elisha, and returned to Missouri with some of the other Jones families..

p.43, Dwelling 188; Elisha M. Jones age 19 b. KY with Sarah E. age 15. Married within the year. This would be the youngest son of George & Luana.
p.44, Dwelling 295; William T. Jones, age 26, Arminda E 24, Sarah A. 2 and Martha 1. Son of George. There is another 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?

George JONES and Louann COBLE were married. Louann COBLE was born about 1813 in Kentucky.
According a Dade County researcher, the death certificate of James F. Jones, son of George & Louann, has that his mother's maiden name was Coble. She could not have been a daughter of Chritopher Coble whose family was in Dade Co; her age would place her as a sister or cousin. However, she doesn't appear in any Coble database online. This rather unusal given name is not found in any of the the Coble families. None of Christopher Coble's siblings came to Dade Co, although his father Henry died in Dade Co circa 1860. Henry's will named only sons and a daughter-in-law, no daughters, and Louann was still living as late as the 1880 census.
George JONES and Louann COBLE had the following children:
