Their children were:
Delila Tomlinson, b. c1819, Johnston; d. after 1850, Fayetteville, Cumberland Co., NC?; m. 6 Aug 1838 (bond), Cumberland Co., NC, Datus Jones, b. c1815, NC; d. after 1860, Fayetteville?

Wooten and Mary Singletary. Her name on the marriage bond was Sarah Crossline; some descendants referred to her as Sarah Jane Wooten Crossland. She apparently had a prior marriage.

Thomas was the eldest child of Edmund Tomlinson, b. 30 Nov 1764, Johnston Co., NC; d. by 25 Feb 1815, Johnston; m. 1 28 May 1794 (bond), Johnston, Delilah McCoy/McKoy/McKay, b. by 1779, d. by 1809, Johnston, daughter of (RW) John McCoy/McKoy/McKay, b. by 1759; d. 8 Sep 1781 near Eutaw Springs, SC. Edmund m. 2 25 July 1809 (bond), Johnston, Sarah (Sally) Coats, b. 1780-1787, Johnston; d. 1830-1840?, Johnston?, daughter of John Coats, Sr., b. by 1765, d. ca. 1823?, Johnston?

Edmund was a son of Thomas Tomlinson, b. 1737-1744, Brunswick Co., VA; d. by 24 Feb 1795, Johnston; m. Sarah (Averyt?), b. c1736; d. 14 Oct 1824, Johnston.

Thomas was a son of William Tomlinson, b. c1715, Surry Co., VA; d. 15 Feb-28 Mar 1758, Brunswick Co., VA, a son of Thomas Tomlinson, Sr., b. by 1690, VA; d. 5 Feb 1750/1, Albemarle Parish, Surry Co., VA, and Elizabeth Cook, b. by 1700, VA; d. 27 Jan 1750/1, Albemarle Parish.

I have a few descendants of Delila Tomlinson Jones, more of William Hardy, none of Altona Jane. Appreciate data on descendants (and ancestors).

You are fortunate to be studying lines passing through Johnston Co., NC, where splendid records are available in the Johnston County Room of the Johnston-Smithfield Library in Smithfield, NC.

Could you tell me, please, when and where these people were b., m., d.? Do you have census or Bible records for them?

I am not aware of any other children of William Hardy Tomlinson than W.H., Jr. Given the name Jones, I am wondering if the descent could be through Delila Tomlinson, elder sister of WH; Delila we know did marry Datus Jones. Could that be your David Jones? (And where did the Capt. come from?)

Datus Jones was the steamboat capt. of the Enterprise on the Cape Fear River. He lived on Water Street which is off of Person St. Fay. NC. I'm trying to find out who his parents are. It seems to stop cold with him on the Jones' side. The Jones family still owns property at around Breece's landing.
