Ancestors of Elwood Nathan Jones

Click the link for the ancestors of Elwood Nathan Jones.  It goes back several generations.  On some lines back to 1615 (Lindley's in England)


Welcome family!!

Hello all!  If you are on this page its likely you were given a copy of my card with my information.

I will be adding information regarding the family of Elwood Jones and Harriett Wilson Jones soon!  I look forward to sharing more information with you and receiving any information you have to share!

This is the original tintype laying on the photocopy version of the picture.  I was truly amazed and grateful to see the tintype!  Thank you for bringing it!
Jonathan T Jones (1853-1930)  Ruth Farlow Jones (1859-1913) and Elwood Jones (1878-1948)

Interesting To Do List

Check into the claim that William Strother descended from Alan de Strother

from a DAR application on

      Strother line to investigate

Famous cousins

When working on my Strother line I stumbled upon a page that mentioned that both President Jimmy Carter and Gen. George Patton are descendents of William Strother (1630-1702).

Jimmy Carter would be my 7th cousin, 2x removed.
George Patton would be my 5th cousin, 2x removed.

Granted this is only true if their online genealogies are correct!

Jimmy's line:  William, Robert, Priscilla, James Kay, James, Mary, James Pratt, Nina, James Carter Sr, Jimmy 

George's line:  William, Jeremiah, James, French, Margaret, Lucy Slaughter, Margaret Williams, George Patton I, George Patton II, George

My line:  William, Jeremiah, James, Mary, James Gray, William, Emma, Robert Atchley, Lyle, my grandma, my mom, me

(names aren't given in my line for people who are still alive for privacy)

Would like to find a copy of this will.  Its not located on FamilySearch either.

The journey begins...

I was delving into some of my Quaker lines today after searching the UK records today (free weekend).  I thought I found some new information and got excited but it turns out it was something that I had already noted in my Ancestry tree a couple years ago but forgot all about since.  Not good!  I decided to finally make my own genealogical blog to help me keep track of my discoveries.  If this goes as I have it imagined it will also help any family members that I connect with along the way!

Time will tell...
