There is a will of Maj. Thomas Jones in Campbell Co VA WB 5, dated 18 Feb 1826. Campbell was formed out of Bedford Co. Jones gave to his son Jonny all the land he bought of John Poindexter - presumably this man, as I've found no other of the many John Poindexters in this location of an age to be possible.
