I want to know if anyone is researching any of these JONES Names?
Actually, I'm looking for JONES in the Petersburg area (most, but not all, data from 1850 census)
Enos JONES, born circa 1804-1809 in MA or NY
m. Margaret UNKNOWN b. ca. 1806-1811 in MA or NY
Daniel, b. 1830
Hazard, b. ca. 1830
Jeremiah, b. 1835
Eunice M., b. ca. 1840
Amos, b. 1842 m. Maryette Scrivens
David Enos, b. 1844-1849
George W., b. ca. 1848
Sophia, b. ca. 1851
John P., b. ca. 1853-1854
Albert, b. ca. 1860
I descend from Amos JONES, who, while visiting relatives in Yates County, NY, fathered two children out of wedlock with Mary Ann PHELPS. One before he enlisted in the Civil War from Yates County. The second, after his release from Andersonville and before his return to Petersburg and subsequent marriage.
Civil War records list his place of birth as Petersburg. The only Amos in the 1850 census is found with Enos, and this Amos is of the right age. High probability that this Amos is my great-great grandfather.
A Hazard JONES also enlisted in the Civil War from Yates County, NY. Hazard is not a common name. Not likely a coincidence.
Any information or leads you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
