JONES, Alexander, brother to Robert, William and Thomas. (5th brother James died in White County, Illinois.) He was born in 1786, in Orange County, North Carolina. His parents moved, when he was a child, to Madison County, Kentucky and from there to Pulaski County, in the same state. Susan WOOSLEY was born in 1788 in Halifax County, Virginia and taken when young to Pulaski County, Kentucky. Alexander JONES and Susan WOOSLEY were married in Pulaski County about 1808. They had one child in that county, and moved to Bedford County, Tennessee where one child was born, and then moved to that part of Barren which has since become Hart County, Kentucky where three more children were born. In 1821 they moved to Wayne County, Illinois where they had two more children, and then moved to Sangamon County, arriving 9 October 1827, in what is now Ball Township, where one more child was born. They had eight children in all: Thomas W., James B., Robert W., Joshua W. (my great-grandfather); Moses A., Burrell T., Amanda F., and Susan D. JONES. Mrs. Susan JONES died 20 January 1844 and Alexander JONES died 20 October 1844 and both are buried in Ball Township (Sugar Creek/Jones Megredy Cemetery).
JONES, Joshua W. born 9 September 1817 in Hart County, Kentucky married in Sangamon County to Polly Ann WILLS. They had seven living children, viz: Adolph W., Laura J., Willis A., Wiley E., Americus V., James A. (My grandfather: known as Alexander James Jones II), and Horatio S. JONES. Mrs. Polly A. JONES died 8 April 1867 and Joshua W. JONES married second on 3 September 1869 to Mary E. DRYER and they had two children: Luella and Junettie JONES. Joshua W. JONES resides in Ball Township, adjoining the farm where his father settled in 1827. It is three miles east of Chatham. He studied medicine and graduated from Rush Medical College in Chicago and practiced for eight years, but now confines his business to farming. Other info: there were three JONES homes very close together built in similar fashions. (Information from Marcia Jones Currie.)
