Alva JONES son of Calvin and Hannah JONES

Alva Jones and wife Zelia A Jones

I first learned of Alva in a college book listing he was at school there. It is packed away in a box from about 20 years ago.

Then expanding my research, cold calling was applied and I located some kin of his with the help of the Chamber of Commerce in Nashua, IA.

Later Charles Jones sent me data from his files out of Nashua, Ia area.

Alva shows in the Iowa State Census 1875 & 1905.

Alva is also with Zelia in the 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930.

He shows for draft in WW1.
