I am looking for any infomation regarding the William TRIPLETT family that settled along Greasy Creek in the late 1700s early 1800s. William TRIPLETT married Rebecca JONES in 1815. Rebecca's father was Allen JONES. The JONES family was also settled along the Greasy Creek. The TRIPLETT family migrated to KY from Wilkes Co. NC.

Deborah, do you have any information on John Jones, son of Allen Jones?

I am descended from Sarah Jane (Jackman) Bailey, daughter of Adam Jackman and Jane Carroll. Their granddaughter married a Jones who was born in KY. He was the son of John G. Jones, also born in KY. I've found my Jones gr grandfather in Newton County, MO in 1880, along with Thomas M. Jackman, son of Alexander and Polly (Jones) Jackman. I'm wondering if there is a connection between Polly Jones and John G. Jones.

Please see my Jackman Genforum post #228 dated 2 Apr 2000 for a biographical sketch of Thomas M. Jackman (son of Alexander and Polly (Jones) Jackman) I found in the Newton County Biographical Index.

I have a connection to Allen & Sarah's son David Jones. Also, to Abner, although I haven't proved that connection yet.

I have very little information as I have not researched this part of the family very thoroughly.

I must make a correction to the family group sheet you submitted recently.

I am a McBeath and Joshua Jones descendant. The Mary "Polly" McBeath you have married to your Allen Jones is incorrect. Polly married Alban Jones on 30 Jul 1818 in Wayne Co, KY. Polly is the sister of my ancestor John McBeath and her husband Alban was the son of Joshua Jones and Hannah Todhunter who are also my direct ancestors.

I have a copy this marriage bond. Her parents were my ancestors Robert McBeath and Frances Dunlop.

Surnames: Triplett Knight Stubblefield Gilmore Vaughan Simpson
I hate to throw a monkey wrench into the Simpson line, but I have some information that I need to pass on, before it gets lost.

I am a descendant of Joel Triplett and Jane Jones through their daughter Rebecca Jane Triplett who married Isaac Preston Knight. Isaac and Rebecca Jane (Triplett) Knight had a daughter Harriet Angeline Knight who was my great-grandmother. She married John Mordica Stubblefield and their daughter Sybil Seba Stubblefield was my grandmother. Harriet Angeline "Angie" Knight was named after an aunt Angeline Triplett who was a sister of Rebecca Jane Triplett.

In 2005, I stumbled across two photos in Sybil Seba (Stubblefield) Gilmore's scrapbook which I inherited from my mother Callie Lou Gilmore Heinze. The two photos were sent by Hubert Shepherd, a cousin, to my grandmother in 1956:
There was a photo labeled Aunt Angel Vaughan. Writing on the back stated, "This was Aunt on mother's side & my mother is named for her. Signed Sybil Stubblefield 1956. This came to me from Hubert, Aunt Sallie's son."
There was another photo labeled Sherman Vaughan. Writing on the back stated, "This was her husband & the last we knew of them they lived in Waco, TX."

So Angeline Triplett married Sherman Vaughan and my great grandmother Harriet Angeline Knight was named for her. I originally had Angeline married to William Simpson who died in Siloam Springs, Arkansas; the Goodspeed History 1888 for the William Simpson family group had Angeline the daughter of Lewis and Prudence Triplett which is right. My file has now been corrected. Marriage records for McMinn Co TN show a Robert Y. Vaughan married Martha A. Triplett Nov 15, 1854. This had to be them, so he was Robert Sherman Vaughan instead of just Sherman Vaughan and she was Martha Angeline Triplett instead of Angeline J. Triplett or just Aunt Angel Vaughan. Thomas M.
