Mystery Monday--More on Madison- Jones

 In hopes of shaking more information out of the family tree that is unknown I am going to post more data on the family of Susan Madison JONES.

Given previously was the names of all their children.  All were in NY, then ILL then IA. AHA, someone said one never left ILL. I have no proof. I need to hear from that one family's downline for more data.

 I have the papers that were written by the Granddaughter. I have many names and places. I need the contacts with down line members.

Henry George,ie George Henry    m Kathryn KERNS,  Elsie Donaldson was child in their home. Dad gave me story I will not print it here.
 Elsie marries John Miller.
more data on this George Henry to post later. Death date is 25 or 26 Sept. 1912. Believe 26 to be accurate date. 

 I have a death in Iowa with a Susan Madisn and a Noyes Jones listed as parents. A male 78 years old by the name of Henry Jones born 1834 in New York died 26 Sep 1912 father born in New york burial place Oak Hill.

Noel JONES born 1835 MASS ie census  death around 1855 either NY or MASS papers stated MASS as Infant. Census shows him much older than that.

Calvin Fay JONES** b 15 May 1843 Rensselaer Co. NY m 5 July 1868 Butler Co IA, US, to Hannah YOUNG b 13 Sept 1850 Bellidere, Boone Co. ILL, her death was 27 Jul 1941 Moorhead, Clay Co. Minn, US. His death was on 23 Sept 1910 Nashua, IA.

 He served with Harrison ( WH) at Stones River , Tenn. mortally wounded according to records then survived they later learned. He was given a pension. He then re enlisted, was not well enough to perform duties and then fought for 25 years to get his pension back. I have all the documentation on him the government would part with. Many stories shared by family members.

I believe Bellidere is Belvidere, ILL but not proven yet. 

He is my ancestor. I have a picture of him and his family hanging on wall near computer. I also married on the same date  5 July many years later. I somehow think he was telling me to do this. Because we were going to marry on the 4th and 
I ended up wanting it to be a separate date from the 4th.  I do believe our ancestors talk to us if we listen.'

Jennie b 1847  NY dies 28 Feb 1874 age 27  census 1850 says she was 5 so her birth may have been 1845. I have contact with one down line kin. She marries Fred Apel, he has picture of their daughter Frances Apel whom marries Alfred P Williams District Attorney of Chicago and had 2 daughters

Lucy Jones b 1847 Petersburg, NY  marries a William FULLER scant information.

Charles E who is not on the 1850 census but born that year in Rensselaer Co. NY , dies 26 Sept 1916 marries Betsey Bartlett ( her family from Ny also)

I have many interesting stories about Great Uncle Charlie from Grandmother Victoria Mae (Ida) Foulk JONES.

I feel I got to know him about the best besides GGranddad. My father grew up knowing this family. 

Some data from written sources by family, some from personal research and some census and government records.

Ed Roberts  Ed is also a cousin and down line from Calvin's only daughter Nora Jepson.
I have other members of Calvin's family in my files. I need to locate the family that was representing George Henry ie Henry George and others listed here.
