I am trying to determine the veracity of family story. John Alexander Jones born 1857 in Ohio; married Margaret Celeste Oakley (born 1863 in New York)February 1880 in Bevier Missouri. They had three children Elon, Lucy and Frank. John Alexander died in 1896. It is said he was shot by a lover of Margaret.
Does anyone know of this story or how I might confirm if it is true or not?
