Third Generation


18. Fleming JONES17,52,53 was born in 1816 in Kentucky. He died in 1889 at the age of 73 in Dade County, Missouri.

Married Mary E. Funk, daughter of James Funk. Fleming is buried Liberty Cemetery. They first appear in Dade Co in the 1860 Census, but all their children are shown as born in Missiouri, even the oldest daughter, age 16. There is a note on Paul Barker's FGS of this family that Fleming & Mary were married 19 Jun 1848 in Lawrence Co MO. Perhaps this is where the missing members of the family can be found in 1850.

Fleming & Polly were found in Lawrence Co 1850 census, but no other missing family members seem to be there; p.309b, Dwelling 575.
"Fleman" Jones, age 36, born in KY; Polly age 25, b. TN. Frances [female] age 6, William age 5, Rebecca age 2, Martha age 7, William age 3, Sarah age 7/12.
All the children were born in MO. One could think perhaps some nieces & nephews lived with them. Strange there are two Williams. Only Martha, Rebecca, and one William appear with the family in 1860 and some of their ages will change. I think it likely Fleming had an earlier marriage and at least the first three, maybe the first four children were by the first wife.
