Jones Surname

Jones is a common surname and variations of it appear in most Western languages. The name is derived from the popular given name John and literally manes "Son of John." The Jones surname is supposed to be most common in Wales. Supposedly, our line of Jones is English in origin.


1st Generation:

Michael Jones was probably born in the 1720's or 1730's at an unknown location, but probably in Virginia. He died before January 21, 1791 in Campbell Co., Virginia.

He is probably of English origin. Michael was married to Ann ---- in about 1748 in Virginia. They had at least 10 children: Michael (see next generation), Mary, George, Publius, Lucy, Erasmus, Dudley, Daniel, Susanna, and Christania. They settled in Bedford County, Virginia, in a part that became Campbell County in 1782. Michael wrote his will in 1780 and died before January 22, 1791 when his will was proven. Michael's will can be viewed at an off-site website by clicking here. [One source indicates that Michael was born in 1699 with an ancestry in Massachusetts and that he was married to Julia Ann Chamberlain - very doubtful].
Michael married Ann in about 1748 in Virginia. She died after 1780.

They had at least 10 children:

1 Michael Jones

2nd Generation:

Michael Jones was born about 1750 in Bedford (now Campbell) County, Virginia . [Unverified internet resources give his birth date as July 5, 1750 and as Jan. 25, 1750/1, but they are questionable]. He died in 1821 in Buckingham Co., Virginia 1.

Father: Michael Jones
Mother: Ann

As a youth, Michael moved to Buckingham County, Virginia. In 1776, Michael enlisted as a private in the 12th Virginia Regiment in Capt. Joseph Mitchel's Company. He served for about one year before he was reported missing in 1777. At that time, he may have left the army to return home and marry. It was at about that time that Michael was married to Leanna Dibrell [internet sources gives dates as March 6, 1777 and June 26, 1777]. Leanna was a relative of the prominent Lee family and was half French.

Michael and Leanna settled in Buckingham County, Virginia, and their estate was called Traveler's Rest. They had 11 children: Elizabeth, Anthony (see next generation), William, Mary, Michael, Judith, Charles, Sarah, Martha, Margaret, and Katy. Nearly all of these children were named after Leanna's family. Michael and his family were wealthy slave owners. Michael is said to have died at his home in Buckingham County in 1821. His widow appears to have died there between 1830 and 1840.

Michael married Leanna Dibrell on March 6 2 or June 26 2, 1777 in Buckingham Co., Virginia. She was born circa 1757 21 or circa 1759 in Albermarle (now Buckingham) Co., Virginia. She died on November 26, 1838 in Buckingham Co., Virginia 21.

Anthony Dibrell Jones was born on September 2, 1780 in Buckingham County, Virginia 1,3. He died on August 7, 1824 in Christian Co., Kentucky 3. He is buried in the Harris-Fletcher Cemetery, Christian Co., Kentucky.

Father: Michael Jones
Mother: Leanna Dibrell

Anthony was the second child in a family of eleven. He was named after his maternal grandfather, Anthony Dibrell. Anthony was married on February 25, 1809 to Martha "Patsy" M. Woodson in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Anthony was 28 years old and Martha was 13 years old.

After the marriage, Anthony and Martha moved to Buckingham County, Virginia where they started raising a family. They had 5 known children: Albert, Elizabeth, Emma, Thomas (see next generation), and Joseph. In the year 1816, Anthony and his family moved out west settled in Christian Co., Kentucky. (He came with his sisters Mary and Judith and their families). Anthony died on August 7, 1824 in Christian County, Kentucky, aged 43. He was buried at the Harris-Fletcher Cemetery in Christian County. Afterwards his widow married A. D. Fletcher and died in 1859.
Anthony married Martha Michaux Woodson on February 25, 1809 in Prince Edward Co., Virginia 4.

They had the following children:

Joseph was a wealthy farmer in Montgomery County, Tennessee. He and his wife moved away from Montgomery County, Tennessee sometime after 1860. Joseph apparently served in the Civil War. He eventually settled in St. Louis, Missouri sometime prior to 1872.

4th Generation:

Thomas Anthony Jones was born on April 26, 1822 in Christian County, Kentucky 3. He died on September 11, 1857 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 3. He is buried in the Harris-Fletcher Cemetery, Christian Co., Kentucky.

Father: Anthony Dibrell Jones
Mother: Martha Michaux Woodson

His middle name was his father's name, and was originally the name of his great-grandfather, Anthony Dibrell (Antoine DuBreuil). Thomas' father died in 1824, when he was only a toddler. Thomas was raised in southern Christian County, Kentucky by his widowed mother. She remarried 1831 to Archibald Fletcher. Thomas' new step-father was only 10 years older than him (the same age as his oldest brother).

Thomas and his family were quite wealthy and were highly involved with business and civic matters in Christian County, Kentucky and neighboring Montgomery County, Tennessee. Apparently in 1844, at the age of 22, Thomas moved to neighboring Montgomery County, Tennessee, where he began managing a large mill site owned by his older brother Albert. Thomas was married on September 10, 1846 to Ethalinda Brodie. Thomas and Ethalinda lived at the mill site (called "Montgomery Mills") off of the Little West Fork near the community of Ringgold. Together they had 5 children: Joseph, Lucy, Etha, Susan, and Thomas.

Thomas appears to have been quite successful in managing the mill site in Montgomery County, Tennessee. In 1850, his estate was valued at $10,000, a relatively impressive sum for the times. Sadly, on September 11, 1857, Thomas died at his home. He was 35 years old and his death was probably a sudden illness or an accident as there are records of him being active in business just a month before his death. Thomas left no will and all of his property was left to his widow and children. Etha was remarried three years later to an older man named Thomas Ogburn who helped to raise Thomas Jones' children. In 1860, the estate of Thomas Ogburn (which would have included the estate of Thomas A. Jones) had real estate valued at $20,000 and personal estate valued at $35,085. It seems though that after the Civil War, this family lost most of their fortune.

Thomas married Ethalinda E. Brodie on September 10, 1846 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 8.

They had the following children:

1 Joseph Howard Jones was born on August 20, 1848 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 16. He died on November 8, 1925 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 16. He is buried in the Riverview Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
He married Sallie M. Bowman on February 28, 1881 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee. (She was born in September 1852 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 5 and died after 1930.)
They had no children.
Joseph and Sallie spent the majority of their married life farming in rural Montgomery County, Tennessee, but in 1900 they were living in Beeville, Texas. Joseph worked as a farmer and also as a house painter.
2 Lucy L.* Jones was born on April 16, 1850 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 15. She died on October 3, 1929 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 15. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
She was married to Cole Spencer Daniel on October 5, 1870 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee. (She was born on May 24, 1842 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee and died on January 4 or 5 9, 1923 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee. He is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had the following children:
Louis Spencer Daniel (1871-1918)
md. May Margaret Watkins
Anna "Claudie" Daniel (c. 1875-1881)
Minor Ethel Daniel (1879-1924)
md. William Coulter Neblett
Leo Thomas Daniel (1884-1926)
md. 1st. Dorothy E.
md. 2nd. Bessie J.
Frank Sthrashley Daniel (1886-1954)
md. Gladys Kelley

They lived in Clarksville, Tennessee where they operated a livery stable.

* My guess is that Lucy's middle name was either Lee or Louise.

3 Ethalinda "Etha" Madora Jones was born on May 18, 1853 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 14. She died on March 21, 1906 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 10,14. She is buried in the Central Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery, Dotsonville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
She married Bradley Anthony Martin on April 11, 1878 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee. (He was born on August 1, 1855 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 14 and died on May 3, 1934 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 10,14. He is buried in the Central Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery, Dotsonville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had the following children:
Bailey Hardin Martin (1882-1959)
md. Jessie
Adeline "Addie" Martin (1884-1918)
md. William Arthur O'Neal Jr.
Bradley Anthony Martin (1885-1956)
md. Mary "Polly" Douglas Ewing
Richard Thurman Martin (1888-1968)
md. 1st. Kathleen Caroland
md. 2nd. Myrtle
Elizabeth Madora "Lizzie Mae" Martin (1890-1958)
md. 1st. Louis Parrish Cummings
md. next. Robert Moseley Turnley
md. last Milton Jasper Knox
(she supposedly had 5 husbands.)
Tennie Louise Martin (1893-1986)
md. Thomas Rosie Moore
Etha Lee Martin (1896-1979)
md. William A. White
Etha and Brad knew each other since they were children because Brad's mother Adaline Ogburn was Etha's oldest stepsister. After marriage, they lived near the small community of Dotsonville, west of Clarksville, where in 1895 they owned 366 acres. Etha was named after her mother and maternal aunt, Madora Fletcher.

4 Susan Martha* Jones was born circa 1854 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 5. She died on March 30, 1878 in Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee 18. She is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.
She married Robert Daniel on November 6, 1873 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 8. (He was born on April 10, 1849 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 19 and died on November 1, 1931 in Montgomery Co., Tennessee 19. He is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., Tennessee.)
They had the following children:
Susie M. Daniel (1875-1942)
md. 1st. Matthew Gracey Settle
md. 2nd. Hugh Montgomery Brinkley
Howard Leslie Daniel (1877-1954)
md. Kate Anderson

In 1880, Susan's daughter was living with her mother and her son was living with her husband's sister.

* It was previously assumed that her middle name was Matilda, and that she was named after her maternal grandmother Susan Matilda Sthreshley Brodie (whose middle name is actually an educated guess). Yet in her father's 1857 probate records, she is listed as "Martha S. Jones"; apparently named after both of her grandmothers. As an adult she used the name "Sudie."

5 Thomas Anthony Jones

2nd Generation:

Thomas Anthony Jones, Jr., was born on November 15, 1856 in Montgomery County, Tennessee 11,12. He died on May 4, 1928 in Hopkinsville, Christian Co., Kentucky 11,12. He is buried in the Riverside Cemetery, Hopkinsville, Christian Co., Kentucky.
Father: Thomas Anthony Jones
Mother: Ethalinda E. Brodie

Thomas was born in the northern part of Montgomery County, Tennessee, probably on the family's "Montgomery Mills" estate and mill at what is now Fort Campbell. Thomas lost his father in 1857, when he was 10 months old. He spent the next three years with his mother and siblings at their mill site. In 1860, his mother remarried to Thomas Ogburn, a wealthy 60-year old widower who lived in the vicinity. At that time, Thomas moved with his family to the Ogburn estate, which was a few miles west of Clarksville, near Dotsonville. There, he spent the majority of his childhood. Sometime during the 1870s, he left his parents' home to try his luck on his own. He was probably the T.A. Jones who in 1880 was boarding in Clarksville, Tennessee, making a living as a clerk. Another possibility is that he was the Thos. A. Jones who in 1880 was boarding in Livermore, Kentucky, and working as a painter.

At some point, Thomas met and became engaged to a young woman named Lee Whitlock, who lived on a farm in neighboring Christian County, Kentucky. They were married at her parents' home near Kennedy (now Oak Grove), Kentucky in 1892. At the time of the marriage, Thomas was 35 years old and Lee was just 22. Afterwards, Thomas and Lee began living on the Whitlock farm in the southern part of Christian County, Kentucky. In 1893, Lee's father deeded her 205 acres of his land. At some point, it seems that Thomas had squandered any portion of his family's estate. His mother was quite wealthy, but in her 1898 will, she mentioned that Thomas was to get nothing, instead having his debts to her forgotten.

Thomas and Lee had a son who died in infancy and two daughters. They lived with Lee's parents on the Whitlock farm in the extreme southern portion of Christian County, Kentucky. The farm partially bordered the state of Tennessee and is now within the city limits of Oak Grove. The location has also been referred to as Kennedy and Edgoten. At this location, Thomas was a successful tobacco farmer. By 1921, there was only 30 of Lee's 205 acres left.

In 1919, Thomas' wife Lee died from influenza. By this time, his daughters had moved out of the family home. In 1921, Thomas married a young woman named Ione Smith, who was a roommate (and friend?) of his daughter Louetha while she was a nurse in Nashville. At the time of the marriage, he was 64 years old and she was just 23. In 1921, Thomas, his second wife, and his two daughters sold their 30-acre farm. It seems that Thomas and his wife continued to live in that area for at least a few more years where they had a son in 1924. There is a possibility that he and his wife may have been divorced, although that has not been corroborated by contemporary evidence. At some point in the 1920s, Thomas moved to the city of Hopkinsville, Kentucky where he lived with his daughter Bertha. He died of "an attack of heart disease" (or acute cardiac dilatation) in 1928, at the age of 71.

Thomas married first to Lee Parrish Whitlock on June 8, 1892 in Kennedy, Christian Co., Kentucky 13.

They had two children:
1 Louetha Jones
2 Bertha Howard Jones was born on October 13, 1896 in Longview Pct., Christian Co., Kentucky 17. She died on April 22, 1980 in Wayne, Wayne Co., Michigan 17.
She married Lucian Montgomery Cayce on December 20, 1916 in Hopkinsville, Christian Co., Kentucky. (He was born on January 15, 1865 in Kentucky and died on July 14, 1936 in Hopkinsville, Christian Co., Kentucky.)
They had the following children:
Lucian Montgomery Cayce (1917-1994)
md. Jane Elgin Hayes
Thomas Whitlock Cayce (1922-1989)
md. Living
3 Thomas Anthony Jones was born and died sometime between 1892 and 1900 in Christian Co., Kentucky. He is buried in the Flat Lick Cemetery, near Herndon, Christian Co., Kentucky.
Thomas married second to Martha Iona Smith on April 21, 1921. She was born on April 21, 1898 in Athens, Limestone Co., Alabama. She died on February 25, 1962 in Christmas, Orange Co., Florida.
Ione or Iona (she usually went by her middle name) was a student nurse at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee where she lived with Louetha Jones. It must have been under that capacity that she met and became engaged to Louetha's father. Some family indicates that Thomas and Ione were divorced (it would have been sometime between 1924-1928) yet a divorce record has not been found. In Thomas' obituary of 1928, she was listed as the survivign wife. Sometime prior to 1931, she remarried to Cecil Argyle Tucker and prior to 1952, had married a third time to Robert H. Stowell.
They had one child:
1 Thomas Anthony Jones was born on August 9, 1924 in Edgoten, Christian Co., Kentucky. He died on May 16, 2000 in Kailua, Honolulu Co., Hawaii. He is buried in the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery, Kane'ohe, Honolulu Co., Hawaii.
He married Anne R. (She was born on October 22, 1923 and died on October 4, 1998 in Kailua, Honolulu Co., Hawaii. She is buried in the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery, Kane'ohe, Honolulu Co., Hawaii.)
They had two children:

3rd Generation:

Louetha Jones was born on April 20, 1894 in Longview Pct. (now Oak Grove), Christian Co., Kentucky. She died on May 22, 1963 in Indianapolis, Marion Co., Indiana. She is buried in the Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis, Marion Co., Indiana.

Father: Thomas Anthony Jones
Mother: Lee Parrish Whitlock

Louetha was a name concocted by her parents, as it was the combined names of both of her grandmothers: Lucretia "Lou" Whitlock and Ethalinda "Etha" Ogburn. Louetha had no middle name, but in her adulthood she unofficially gave herself the middle name "Bell". On all legal records as an adult and according to what she told her family, Louetha was born on April 20, 1899, yet subsequent research into contemporary records from her youth indicate she was actually born in 1894. She was born and raised in the extreme southern portion Christian County, Kentucky in the part of Longview Precinct that is now within the city limits of Oak Grove, Kentucky. The location has been referred to as Edgoten (short for Edge O' Tennessee) and Kennedy. This farm was probably part of the original 400 acres of land that her great-grandfather David Parrish purchased in 1833 when he moved to the area from Tennessee. Louetha lived in the original farmhouse that had belonged to her grandparents, John and Lucretia Whtilock. In 1906, when she was 11, the house burned to the ground in the middle of the night and they escaped with only the clothes on their backs. Afterwards, they rebuilt a home in the same area.

Louetha apparently attended public school in the area and afterwards stayed at home with her parents. In 1912, at the age of 18, she went on a trip to Nashville, Tennessee to visit relatives. In 1917 or 1918, Louetha moved by herself to Nashville and to become a nurse. She lived and worked at the St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville. In 1919, when her mother was on her deathbed, she returned home and stayed at her mother's side until she passed away. Louetha was working as a nurse in Nashville in January 1920, when a wounded gangster named Manlius Hosse was admitted for a gunshot wound. Louetha treated him and the nurse and the patient soon developed a "whirlwind" romance and were married within weeks. Manlius was involved in bootlegging, gambling and political racketeering (at the time, he owned a popular speakeasy in Nashville). Their exciting life together ended just a year later when Manlius was killed by a police officer. Afterwards, Louetha moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where she lived with Manlius' mother Carrie Hosse. It was while living there that she met and became engaged to Newell Brown, a man from Clarksville, Tennessee who she may have known from her youth. They were married in 1922.

It is not known what they did or where they lived between 1922 and 1925, as they did not remain in Louisville. Newell worked for an insurance company, which required him to move quite frequently. In 1925, they were in Helena, Arkansas, when their daughter Bettye was born. They remained there for a few years until they moved to Enid, Oklahoma, sometime between 1926 and 1928. They remained in Enid until 1930. They then lived in Nashville, Tennessee from 1930-1931; Chattanooga, Tennessee from 1931-1932; Detroit, Michigan from 1932-1935; Chicago, Illinois from 1935-1937; and finally moved to Indianapolis, Indiana in 1937, where they remained. In Indianapolis, Louetha was a member of the Third Christian Church and during World War II was a Red Cross volunteer. She was a kind and loving woman who was called "Lou" by her friends and family and "Nana" by her grandchildren. In her old age, Louetha suffered from arterial sclerosis as well as severe memory loss (she probably had what is now known as Alzheimer's Disease). Eventually, she went to live in a nursing home facility because her family could not adequately care for her. She died there in 1963, at the age of 69. Her husband died just 13 days later.

On her daughter Bettye's birth certificate, it indicates that Bettye was the second child born to the mother. The family though had never heard any reference to another child and no records have been so far located to prove or disprove it. If Louetha did have an additional child, it is not known when or by whom the child was born.

Louetha married first to Manulis Sylvester Hosse on January 26, 1920 in Nashville, Davidson Co., Tennessee. He was born on April 21, 1887 in Tennessee. He died on January 30, 1921 in Nashville, Davidson Co., Tennessee.

They had no children.
Louetha married second to Newell Boone Brown on March 14, 1922 in Louisville, Jefferson Co., Kentucky.
