My John Jones was transported to Australia in 1829 so know nothing of his past in England. He married another convict Elizabeth Walters in 1838 and they had moved to Dubbo NSW by 1846 for the birth of 2nd daughter (as they are only baptism records neither give any information of parents except names. Birth certificates of last 2 children only state London as parents birth place. Deaths just say England

Greene Co TN..George Jones B. abt 1760, parents Thomas and Elizabeth Jones from VA or MD.  It seems that Thomas had  brothers Samuel and Joseph Jones. In late 1700's these men came to TN.  At the time of Thomas's death he was living in Jefferson Co TN. He died abt 1803/4. I do not know about Elizabeth after Thomas's death. In court minutes of Greene Co TN, I find Joseph and Thomas  as heirs to brother Samuel. They both signed their rights over to a Daniel Carter of Greene Co. Hoping someone has connections.

I am joining the Jones Project in order to contact AJones, a member of this project. I saw a comment made by him/her in Dec. 2011 about the Jones family that began their life in America in Maryland and after many years settled in Alabama. Later, descendants moved on to Texas. The comment said that William Jefferson .Jones was the ggg grandfather of AJones. William Jefferson Jones is my gg grandfather. Because, I am new I am not sure how to contact this person. Perhaps some of you will help. me.

AJones I am from the Texas side and I know some of the connections and would like to share them with you.

I am having difficulty locating an M. Richard JONES.  I do not know what the "M" might stand for nor do I have a DOB.  My best guess is that Dick is 65+possibly born in the 1940+/-.   For at least 2 years he worked in Puerto Rico outside of San Juan (1973-74) at a tobacco plant that I think might have been owned by R J Reynolds Tobacco out of NC or a subsidiary. At that time he was a single/divorced parent and had 2 kids that would come to visit named Diane and Scott. They are most likely grown with families of their own by now.

I have very little to work with obviously. I did find a match on the name thru the SS Death index and the guy died last year at the age of 82.  This sounds too old for Dick but I sent for the death certificate from NC nevertheless in hopes of finding out for sure or at least maybe find a connection.

If his name (went by Dick) is in some of your research I would love to hear from you.  Also, if you have some tips or suggestions for pursuing this endeavor with little info I could appreciate them as well. This is definitely an exercise is it not?
