I am looking for informaiton on my husband's grandfather and great-grandfather. Rumor has it, his great-grandfather, John Henry Jones was either an American Indian or married an American Indian, Cherokee as the rumor goes. His wife was Pricilla or Aussiala Harris. We think John was born in South Carolina. His son, my husband's grandfather, was James Henry Jones born in North Carolina. He married several times. He was born between 1870 and 1874. Very common name and very hard to learn anything about the two men. I can't verify they were Indian, or basically that they were even born!!! I can't find them on census records or cemetery records. They were from Pitt County NC, but as far as SC, I have no idea of where to look. Please help if you can.

I'm looking for the Jones' on my husbands side of the family also - we know there's Native American somehow - we're guessing through the Jones side - but no one really seems to know how, or where they were from. I'm really starting from the very beginning on this one. I've gotten as far back as his grandmother's grandfather - I believe his name was J.W. Jones, but I don't know what the J.W. stands for, where he was from, or anything about his family. Judging by the entires on this message board, there seem to be several Jones families in the same situation!

I understand the delima and it's possible we're looking for the same line. I know my John Henry Jones is from SC, and there's rumor that he was either part Amerian Indian, or was married to an Indian. But unfortunately that's all I have. Keep in touch. Maybe something will click.

I will definitely keep in touch. My e-mail address is kasey00hotmail.com The Jones' I'm looking for eventually ended up in Texas somehow (my husband's grandmother is now in Texas.) I'm not sure how many generations ago it was that they came there, and I have no idea where they came from. I literally have almost nothing to go on at this point!
