You must have only seen the index. There is a search engine near the
bottom of the main Sumner County page that searches all of the site,
including the censuses. When I used that I found many JONES. However,
the ones in the 1895 census were not railroad workers... they were
brick masons, lawyers, and retired folks.
Also, this is still a partial transcription, of only the largest cities
in Sumner County. I just received another film (there's 1 more after
that) and will be transcribing it over the next couple of months.
Since your folks may have lived "just outside" or "near" a town, you
might want to check back on a periodic basis.
BTW, we've got a lot of SMITHs in Sumner, also <g>
