Jones in Georgia, USA ---

Have hit a brick wall with my Great Great Grandfather - David Lewis Jones (David Louis).  First appears in 1850 Putnam County, GA census with mother ANN (Head of House) and sister Lucy, Mary Elizabeth and brother James Judson. 

The Jones next appear on the 1860 Harris County, GA census -- she was deeded land by an Arthur Farley in Harris County.

Have not been about to find the husband of ANN or ANN'S MAIDEN NAME OR FAMILY.  Have been unable to find any siblings of Ann's unknown Jones husband.

This Jones family is well documented in Harris and Muscogee County, GA and Lee County, AL after they moved west between 1850 and 1860. 

David Lewis joined the 35th GA Infantry Company K on July 4, 1861 -- there was a Robert Issac Jones (son of William Clayton Jones) - who lived in Russell County, AL and also came to Harris County, GA on 7/4/1861 to join Company K with David Lewis -- they served together throughout the war -- and in the early 1900s - David Lewis witnessed Robert Issac's Civil War papers -- they were both living in the Phenix City, AL area.   Have to feel like they knew each other -- both were born aroun 1843 -- but Robert did grow up Russell County, AL - his father William Clayton was born in GA - and married in Monroe County, GA during the early 1830s.

This has consumed us for about 40 years now -- and so want to find David Lewis' father.

Thanks All -

Bob Jones
