Monday's Mystery's Susan Madison JONES

My mystery lady on my 5 Generation Chart.

Long ago in a far away place, there was born a baby girl. She grew up and married, had children, lost a child or maybe more and moved to far away lands from where she was born.

24 March 1818, is supposed date of Susan's birth in, either: MASS, VT, NY and one son said CT.
She married, all the family said they were married.  They practiced the Baptist faith. Records seem to be Nil.
Time of marriage according to descendants was about 1832 prior to first child's birth. Place supposedly via family knowledge was near Holyoke, Springfield, MASS.  Many years of researching has found me nothing. Nor for two other cousins of this lineages researching was anything found.

Name of husband was NOYES JONES b 31 March 1809 in Petersburg, Rensselaer Co. NY records and 1808 on tombstone in IOWA.  YES, his birth was recorded in Town Records by his parents: NOEL JONES and Susannah JONES.

Their second child NOEL was born in MASS, according to family and census records. This same child is killed/died prior to full adulthood according to family.  The first born and all other born children were in New York,  as near as determined in Rensselaer Co..

After 1855 they are no longer in New York.  They are then in Nunda, McHenry Co. Ill. After the Civil War they move to Chickasaw Co. Ia area.  Having lived in various places.

Alas, even in death they were moved due to road widening.  All the children that we have records of married and had children and lived somewhere between Nunda, ILL and IOWA, MINN, and the DAKOTA's.

Susan MADISON JONES died 13 Feb 1881 in Chickasaw Co., Iowa. or on boundary of that county.
It seemed their land was mixed counties.

They are now interred in Oak Hill Cemetery, Nashua, Chickasaw Co. IA.  He died 17 April of the same year.

She had  five boys and 3 living girls.  The second boy died in NY / MASS pre 1860.

Children's names are:  Henry George( some say George Henry), NOEL (dcd young),  Arvilla,  William Harrison died in Tenn CW, Calvin Fay my ancestor, Jennie, Lucy and Charles E. whom ma a BARTLETT also from NY.

Family said birth was 1814, 1812, 1816 and 1818. So she is my Mystery lady of this Monday.

Grandma Susan I could use some tips and hints here.

 She was my Great Grandfather's Mother. I would also love to have the JONES family in IOWA remember who has the picture of her and NOYES JONES her husband that hung in the families hall way in the early 1930s.  Anyone have a picture of her or  Noyes?
