I have 3 Jones Lines, One is a very strong quaker line that originated
to North Carolina, from there they went to Georgia and back up to,
Indiana, Ohio and Iowa.
Another line went south around Missouri etc. This one that has Erasmus,
started around Bucks
Co. and Philadelphia Co. Pennsylvania, Erasmus' parents went to Maryland
then Virginia, his
father Samuel was a Revolutionary war officer, he went back to Washington
Co. Pa after the
war, where he died. His children with the exception of a couple all went
to Ohio, Erasmus'
nephew Jefferson Harrison Jones was a very close friend of James A.
Garfield, he was Garfields
chaplin in the Civil War, they were very close, both were ministers with
the Disciples of
Christ movement, JH Jones married James and Lucretia Garfield and one of
married Garfields son. Garfield tried to get JH to come to DC and be on
his cabinet, JH
refused, he felt his ministry was more important. When Garfield died JH
was the last minister
to speak a eulogy for Garfield. JH was my ggggrandfather. I have 9 Samuel
Jones from the 3
lines. If you want to send me the names of the Jones you are looking at
with a little info if
you have it, I can probably help you with them. I have gotten the most
important info for the
Sellers done and will be sending right after this one. If you are
interested in descendants, I
am putting that into the Family Tree Maker and when I have them done I can
copy the report or
outline and send it to you. Unless you have the FTM, then I can send you a
file and save you
some typing. Nice visiting with you I have met some really nice people
today!! The Seller
descendants are great folks!
I acquired the information with my Jones Family research,
married Erasmus Jones and Erasmus is a brother to one on my ancestors.
The pages are full of information, almost every name has dates, there is
quotations from wills etc.
I received this info from a very kind lady who knew I was researching
this Jones family, I have not met her, but she found this in the
Virginia State Library while researching her family. She is not in any
way related to me, she just did this out of kindness, now I am returning
the favor. If this info seems to fit your family, or you want me to do a
look up in it I will be glad to share it with anyone who could benefit.
I know how hard it has been to find any information about this Jones
family, I don't know whether or not the Sellers family has been
difficult to find, but the info is here if you think it will help you.
