Looking for parents of James Jones (1790 - 1862), who was born in PA or MD; lived in Greene County, PA. His wife was Elizabeth Henderson. They had four children - William (married Rhoda McClelland), Nancy (married Reason Dye), Hannah (married James McClelland, sister of Rhoda)' and John.

Family legend has Robert Jones as James' father, but have no documented evidence of this, however. It is reported that Robert had at least two brothers - Charles and Andrew, who located in Columbiana Co., Ohio in the early 1800 s. One or both of these brother may have relocated to KY later.

It is likely that this Jones Family came west from eastern PA, Maryland (Harford Co. (?) or VA. I have DNA data indicating that a Richard Jones (b. 1815) with ancestral roots to Charles City, VA in the late 1600s and early to mid-1700s is related. Richard Jones would be a 4th cousin or less.

Does this information resonate with anyone?

I am descended from Francis Jones 1714, Isle of Wight, and his son, William.  I would love to share information about this line.  I have hit a wall with William but have proved his line from his son, Thomas F. to myself.  Please contact me at my email:

I would like to know if any folks posting here might be related to this line of Joneses? It might be confusing with the name Jacob, but these are different generations. Jacob Jones’ father’s name was Joseph “Jo” Jones, and he was born in Corsham, Wiltshire, England in 1620. They from from England to Maryland on the Defence and Abigail. No information is available on his wife’s name and there is no death information for Joseph Jones; however, I suspect one of these two women was his wife, Elizabeth Bayly or Edith Simonds. According to ship manifests, Joseph “Jo” Jones, age 11 or 15, travelled to the United States about 1630-1635 with parents, siblings, and perhaps an aunt. They settled on the Bush River Lower in Harford County. John Jones’ parents were Jacob and Elizabeth (Stevens) Jones. Jacob Jones was born in Swan Creek, Harford County, Maryland, in 1644. No death date is available for Jacob Jones, but he died in Harford County, Maryland. Jacob Jones married Elizabeth Stevens on January 9, 1667, in Swan Creek, Harford County, Maryland, in 1672. Elizabeth (Stevens) Jones was born in Swan Creek, Harford County, Maryland, in 1648, and she died in Harford County, Maryland, in 1716. Jacob Jones’ parents were John and Martha (Lovell) Jones; they were married in Swan Creek, Harford County, Maryland, on July 8 1695. John Jones was born in Swan Creek, Harford County, Maryland, in 1672. Martha Lovell was born in Swan Creek, Harford County, Maryland, in 1674. Children of John and Martha (Lovell) Jones were Benjamin Jones, 1696-1739; Jacob Jones, 1698-1729; William Jones, 1706; and John Jones, 1715. While there are no death dates, data shows that they both died in Harford County, Maryland. Elizabeth Lovell’s parents were John Lovell, 1650-1699, and Mrs. John Lovell, 1650. William Jones’ parents were Jacob and Elizabeth (Peregoy) Jones. Jacob Jones was born in Hartford County, Maryland, in 1698, and he died in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 28, 1729. Elizabeth Peregoy was born in Hartford County, Maryland, in 1700, and she died in Baltimore, Maryland on December 2, 1740. They had four children, Jacob Jones, 1720-1773; William Jones, 1723-1791; Stephen Jones, 1726; and Benjamin Jones, 1728. Stephen Thomas Jones’ parents were William and Elizabeth (Williams) Jones. William Jones was born in Joppa, Hartford County, Maryland, on January 10, 1723, and he died in Joppa, Hartford County, Maryland, January 22, 1791. According to Individual Records of the Family Data Collection as well as Maryland Marriages 1655-1850, and Maryland Revolutionary War Records, William Jones married Elizabeth Williams on January 22, 1751, in Baltimore. Elizabeth Williams was born in Joppa, Hartford County, Maryland, in 1733, and she died in Maryland in about 1778.The oldest child of Stephen Thomas and Elizabeth Larroe (Knight) Jones of Virginia was Mary Emiline Jones, who was born in South Carolina in 1793, and died in Nacogdoches County, Texas, in 1862. She was married in 1816 at age twenty-three to Samuel Brimberry of North Carolina, 1785-1836. Their children were Eliza Brimberry born in 1819; and William Anderson Brimberry, born 1824. The family had migrated to Nacogdoches County, Texas, prior to 1850. Stephen Thomas Jones and two of his brothers, Isaac and Samuel, were in the Maryland Militia and had migrated south through South Carolina and North Carolina (Abbeville) then to what was then Georgia, where my ggg-grandfather William Jefferson Jones was born in 1815. Stephen Thomas Jones received land grants in Dallas and Wilcox counties, Alabama, where they settled. After the Civil War, Stephen Jackson Jones, the son of William Jefferson Jones, migrated to Navarro County, Texas with the Skinner (of Maryland), Kyser, Albritton, Robinson, and several other families.

My Jones line comes from the Danville/Catlin, Illinois area. My gggrandfather Evan John Jones married Sarah Anne Thomas. Her father and his brother came to the USA in a sailboat around 1852 and landed in New York, with the rest of the families coming in 1853. I'm needing help in filling in dates for the Catlin area.
