I met Janice Fiebiger of Woodburn, Oregon in the early 1980's if I recall right. She got in touch with me via Toby Jones mother from Arizona. (Lucy Jones) now dcd. Lucy's husband was the JONES relative Dad (Ray Dee Jones ) had looked for for years.
Dad knew he had cousins and had met them at least once. A story I will later share with you happened on one trip, he and his brother never forgot. His family fell apart by the time he was 10 years of age.
As I am clearing files I found the letter that Janice sent me after we met and exchanged data here in San Diego as she was headed back to Oregon.
After reading the two letters she shared and hers, I can say there is more knowledge for us to share.
Maybe you Iowa JONES and MINN. JONES have this data and have not shared with we JONES Researchers.?? She shared 30 letters with JONES/APEL and other JONES 1967.
So sad she did not know Dad and Gerald Oliver were looking for them. Carl Fremont's sons.
1. Christopher Jones Files, mine, father Christopher JONES Sr. said in English records he was NOT from Wales. It has come to bear that he may have been JOhns from Ireland? Totally not proven yet. Need more older JONES males to take the DNA test. That I learned at Seminar yesterday may help solve that problem. (Implication was in these files I read they were from Wales.)
2. In the papers found is written, by whom ever did the original on this paper (typed) that Noyes Jones and Susan Madison married in 1832 in Mount Holyoke, MASS. I will continue looking but so far in 20 years no results. Susan appears to have been born in VT. (SideBar) her children had her born in 3 states, then it was explained to me the boundaries kept moving back and forth so very possible for different states to be cited but not moved at all. ( Mass, VT, or NY) This came from a descendant of the JONES that lives still or did when last spoke to them in Renssealer Co. NY as a Town Historian.
3. One letter is from Charles Jones wife, I will call Charles. He is one month older than my husband.
Would love to go visit him and some other JONES kin in that region. Carolin Forbes put me back in touch with him thankfully.
4. That letter is to Mrs. Robert J. WILCOX, of Sioux City, IA ( in quote is written--Letter to my Aunt Helen JONES WILCOX.) 1967.
5. Francis TAIT, typed up a report similar to the one I got from NY but has much more writing on it that was since added by Janice F. Much added data on Noyes Jones line and is going to take some time to decipher and get each person in right place. Data I do not remember at all. Mom must have been ill and I was traveling north a lot.
6. Seeing names that are direct kin and had no clue of which may really help in resolving some confusion.
7. Here are some related directly names we should be looking at for a complete family file.
APEL, DE CAILLET, DONALDSON/MILLER, FORBES, MAREN KRISTINE NIELSON VITTRUP, NELSON in Minn, CHRISTOPHERSON in Minn, PRELLWITZ, RUST, KIRK,
PLANTS, WILDE, TITUS, NAMES mostly associated with Henry George's line.
8. Henry 2nd marriage Carolin Forbes found data.

I found a source citation for the second marriage of Henry Jones. It is in the Iowa Marriage Records for 1880-1937, listed under "Mac J Stephens" instead of Mae J Stephens. She seems to also be known as Maud Mae or Mary Jane Stephens. She lived in Dyersville Iowa. She married Henry Jones on 12-25-1891 at Manchester, Iowa (spelling?) It was her first marriage and his second, after Kathryn Kerns died. I have a bunch of records on her family from England also if you want sometime. She is my great grandmother. She lived with Jessie after Henry died, from the 1925 Iowa State Census, she was a widow age 66 and he was 30.
Susan Madison is also listed as Henry's mother on the Iowa Marriage Record, and Nois, or looks like Norris, who knows what they did to the name, listed as father of Henry Jones.
no listing for Susan's parents, too bad.
I hope you are well, thanks for the Susan Madison info!

Subject: Jones, Harrison
Susi, I have tried for years to document the oral history of Harrison Jones. As you know he served with his brother Calvin Freement and was was killed in the Battle of Stones River, TN. I am visiting my daughter in Atlanta for a few days and wanted to visit Stones River National Park in TN. Further research today turned up nothing again until I again reviewed the Jones list of killed in the battle and found a William H Jones who signed up same time as Calvin, same unit and was killed Dec 31 1862, everything fits for for Harrison to be William Harrison Jones. I have pasted that info below. What do you think? or have you firgured that out also before me. Ed
