  1. I have an old photo on my wall now of Calvin Jones and Hannah Young Jones. I am Toby Jones, son of Fay Walter Jones and Lucile Mae Anderson Jones. I am in Tucson, Az., but born and raised in St. Paul, Mn. My mother Lucy passed away in 2012. You probably know my sister Shelley also doing genealogy research.
