I down loaded a file from RootsWeb's World Connect Project: Mike's Relatives and Ancestors. This file takes the Jones line back to the 1400's. It shows John A. as the father of William james with a wife Elizabeth. I see one problems with it however. John A. is born 24 Dec 1729 and doesn't die until 24 Jul 1840. That is considerably more than 100 years. Since John A. is listed on this file as Sr. I wonder if there should be another John between John A. and William James.

Thanks for the information. His age seemed to be really old, so I wasn't sure that it was right.

John A. Jones, Sr. did live to be 110 years old. I have never know what his middle initial stood for, or what his wife Elizabeth's maiden name was. Please advise where you found this info. I am a direct decendent of this Jones family and would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Gardner:

Just came across your message of Jan. 5, 2000, about John A. Jones, reputed father of my great-great-great grandfather on my mother's side, James Jones of Tell Township, Huntingdon County, Pa. (c1784-c1858). James Jones married my great-great-great grandmother on my father's side, Mary Gooshorn. I found so many John Joneses that I have been unable to verify the parentage of James Jones, who you identify as WILLIAM James Jones. Can you please tell me the source of the information that John A. Jones and Elizabeth Somerset were his parents.

As for Margaret J. Jones, daughter of James Jones and Mary Gooshorn: Margaret Jones, intermarried with William Parsons, was the daughter of James Jones of Tell Township, according to James's will, copied into Huntingdon County Will Book 5, pp371-372. James mentions in his will sons John, Jacob G., David and Robert B.; daughters Elizabeth (Samuel Parsons), Margaret (William Parsons), Nancy (Jackson Briggs), Arabella M. Ella, Eleanor (John Briggs), Julyan (Jonathan Price) and Susanna (Isaac Watters); grandson William Crambridge (sic) Patterson and granddaughter Mary Eleanor Ettnire. The will was written May 21, 1856, and amended September 1, 1856.
