Noyes(Nois) Jones and Susan Madison Jones

 Noyes (Noice, NOIS) Jones was born in New York,  his parents were Noel Jones born about 1785 supposedly? near Albany, New York and Susannah.
1. Written in Petersburg Court House Records Book.

Their first child appears to be NOYES JONES, my(our) ancestor.  Noel, Susannah and Noyes Jones are found in the 1810 census in Peterburg, Rensselaer  Co.,NY.
2. Years of research and they are never located again in census. Other family members of that name but the ages and stages of life do not fit, and claimed by other family members.

Noyes marries possibly in Holyoke, Springfield, Mass area according to his Granddaughter Hazel  M Gritzner, about 1832 to Susan Madison b 1818 in Mass/Vt area.
3. No proof located yet. It appears they were Baptist at this point.
3. Children all say different areas for her birth and so does she change mind often on census.

They lived near relatives in  Petersburgh, Rensselaer Co. Ny until they moved to McHenry Co. Illinois.
At the time, two sons  joined the Civil War they were living in Nunda.  Other collateral kin of the Jones lived not far from them.  After one son killed and the other one seriously injured, had came back from the war and re-enlisted and was mustered out due to health, the family moves to Chickasaw Co. Iowa.
They lived at more than one home and their residence was on border of three counties. I have not learned if the oldest son was in CW yet.

  1. Susi, have you investigated this Mattison family for your Susan - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-16302-93617-89?cc=1784223&wc=13971401

    Probate records or land records for them might be the evidence you need.

  2. Great thought, and not sure if this is a fit or a miss. Several years back I joined the Mattison group in high hopes of clues. We found three potential ladies. Alas they all had different husbands and ended up living somewhere else. But will check this one out and maybe a fit can be found. Thanks so much.
