William Harrison JONES, Calvin's brother.

WILLIAM HARRISON JONES, was the son of  Noyes Jones and Susan Madison Jones and was born in Rensselaer Co. NY.  He was their third born son and our ancestor (CALVIN)  was the fourth. He had 3 sisters and possibly a fourth.  We believe he was born in Jones Hollow on Jones Rd, since all of the rest of family was there.

His parents moved to Illinois after the loss of their son Noel JONES b 1835 in Mass. dying some time  after 1850. At least that is what family papers state. I have not found death information on Noel Jones yet.  He was old enough to stay in NY with out parents but each downline family says he died.
Noel shows on the 1850 census but never again.
