I am sure there are other William Thurman Jones. Thurman is not a name
that has been used much, in the Porterfield family anyway. The Thurman Jones
I have in my line, is the Son of Jim and Ella Jones. Ella was my Father's
youngest sister. This Thurman was born 02 May 1932, Wild Cherry, Fulton
County, Arkansas. He, along with his parents moved to the Wideman Area.
Moving a few times during his childhood. He joined the Army in 1951 and was
sent to Korea shortly after basic training. He was killed on Heartbreak ridge
on December 4.1952. He was buried in February of 1953 in the Wideman
Now the record is straight.
I am doing research on the Porterfields, Jones, Sanders, McVey, and Yancey
families. If anyone has any information on any of these families I would
really appreciate it.
