Re: Search for Jones Family 1856-1860 Red River County Texas

Classification: Query

I find a Martin G Jones that married Elizabeth Millsap 05 Feb 1846 in RR Co and a Robert Jones marriage to an Elizabeth J Williams 06 May 1849.

Martin G Jones b. TN, Elizabeth b. MO and 1 yr dtr Missouri lived in Titus Co in 1850.

I am not related and may have a lead on the daughter Virginia Bell Jones. I find several public trees for her that does not name her parents. Marriage date to John Morton Anderson listed as 05 Sept 1872 and she was born in Red River County TX 07 Aug 1853.

Her Washington death record says her father was Robert Jones mother a Morton. I find Morton's in RR county in 1850 & 1860 that came from Tennessee to TX. I'm thinking that Elizabeth was first married to a Williams and first dtr was a Williams not Jones but can not pinpoint a marriage record.

There were 5 daughters born to Elizabeth unknown Jones. Frances who may have been a Williams b. 1848, Mary Ellen 1851, Virginia Bell 1853, Malinda 1856 and "Teresa" Jane 1858. According to the 1900 census for Elizabeth unknown Jones all of her children were living.

Unable to find a Jones/Williams marriage record in TX or AR. My question: Was Frances a Jones that married a Williams and was widowed by 1870 or was she a Williams to start with ?
