Tombstone Tuesday in IOWA JONES, Calvin and Hannah Young Jones

As I am still looking for Calvin Fay Jones, grandmother, we are filling in the blanks on various areas on  my want list.

Today I will post Calvin Fay JONES tombstone and his wife Hannah Young JONES.
Remembering that Calvin's lineage is this:
Noel JONES b abt 1785 NY wife Susannah  ( last name not known)
source Rensselaer Co. NY Court House records, written in the book.
Noyes JONES birth is recorded by Noel and Susannah JONES

Noel states Noyes birth was 31 Mar 1809. He is father and Susannah is his mother.

1810 census shows NOEL, wife and 1 minor small child.  Petersburg, Rensselaer Co. NY.
No data on them found again.  DID disease take them? Did he die in War of 1812 since this is a family that bears arms often?  Did she die and he starts a complete new life with other people.
I think I find Noyes with Abel in the census due to his age and what is either his Grandfather or Great Uncle.  Abel's children are mature but he suddenly has a young man in his household.

Noyes marries Susan Madison around 1832 and has children in NY. 1 child in MASS.
Last child recorded was 1850 in NY was Charles.  By 1857 they are preparing to move to ILL.

Calvin and his brother William Harrison JONES fought in the CW in the same ILL  unit.
William Harrison is buried in Tenn.

Calvin died in 1910. Grandad (Carl Fremont) shared stories about his father though very few. He was a young man by the time his father  died.  My Father was born 3 years after his death.
