Lazarus JONES

NOTES: He moved to Jackson County, Tennessee around 1827 when he purchased some land there.

CENSUS RECORDS: 1840 District #11, Jackson County, Tennessee page #52, Book #976.851 X2l
JONES, Lazarus is in the 70 to 80 age bracket, there were the following children: 1 boy 5 to 10, 1 boy 10 to 15 (probably grandsons) =Elias JONES is listed right after him on this census record.=

NOTES: In District #11, Jackson, Tennessee in 1840 there is Amassa, Byram, Lazarus & Elias JONES along with William Billingsley listed in the census record.

NOTES: He was 77 in 1850 leaving with Susannah Billingsley and her children. I am not sure and do not have proof yet that Lazarus is the father of the children I have listed for him. But he is living with Susannah in 1850. It is just a maybe that John, Amassa, Elias, Byram, Claiborn, Susannah & Nancy are the children of Lazarus. Still need more proof.

NOTES: According to Thomas Edward Jones Jr. a 5th great grandson of Lazarus of Jackson County, Tennessee the story goes that Lazarus came from Wales to South Carolina, moving later to Tennessee. Thomas e-mail address is He lives just outside Nashville in May 2000.

NOTES; There is a Lazarus Jones married to a Kessiah Spear from Pasquotank County, North Carolina on the IGI at the Salt Lake Family History Library. The ages would be right to be this Lazarus. I also found that he was born ca. 1763 on the IGI and that they were married 9 March 1787 in Pasquotank Counyt, North Carolina. He should have been about 87 years old in 1850 instead of 77 years old if born in 1763. Also found that a Lazarus Jones served in the Revolutionary War from North Carolina pension #W26796. A Lazarus Spears born 29 Sep 1786 in Pasquotank County, North Carolina gave a statement that he knew that Lazarus Jones had served in the Revolutionary War. Lararus Spears had a brother named Jesse Spears who was born 23 Aug 1789 in Pasquotank County, North Carolina. Their father was Samuel Spears who was born ca. 1761 in Halifax County, North Carolina. Samuel maybe the brother to Kessiah Spears who married Lazarus Jones. I am going to send for the pension record and see what I can find. (1 Jan. 2000) I received the pension record for Lazarus Jones, 23 FEB 2000. He is not the same Lazarus Jones who was in Jackson County, Tennessee. The Lazarus Jones who married Kessiah Spears died in 1814 or 1818 and his widow applied for a pension in 1842 in Macon County, Illinois. I will need to keep looking.
