I am looking to trace my family and hopes to find living ones from as far back as I can go the Jones Family started in Edgefield, South Carolina with Boston Jones bn 1851 for what I got so far Boston was married twice and 2 different set of children from his first wife

Sophia bn 1854 there children was:

Alfred Jones bn 1870
Boston W Jones bn 1871 Married Tenel Walker
Ora Jones bn 1873
Jonas Jones bn 1876
Nimrod Jones bn 1877
Nina Jones bn 1878
Remus Jones bn 1879

now except for Boston W Jones there is no other information I can find on the other children. now in the 1880 census Boston is a widower now we catch up to him again in 1900 now he is married again to Mary A Smith and have other set of children

Ezekial Jones bn 1885 Married Celia Murray (this is my grand fathers father)
Henry Jones bn 1886
Leah Jones bn 1888
Moses Jones bn 1891 Married Ella Pinkney
Abigale Jones 1892
Washington Jones 1896
Joel Jones bn 1900
Elza Jones bn 1903

as you can see I found a lot but there is a lot missing from the children I can not find any records of them I hope if anyone that has came across any of these people while looking a Jones Family or if you are related to anyone here and can help me fill the gap with the family please reach out to me

I'm not related, but looked around a little for information on your family.

I found a death certificate for an Ezekial Jones in Edgefield Co, SC, in 1915, 30 years old, but it shows he is single.. but parents are Boston and Mary Smith Jones. Here is link:

Here is death certificate for Boston born 1851, died 1923:

Nina Thomas b.1880, dau of Boston & Mary Ann Jones, died 13 Aug 1955 in Columbia, Richland, SC:

It looks like Boston's family is in the 1910 census in Johnston, Edgefield Co. There is 24 yr old daughter Hester listed with married name of Johnson, showing she's married 2 years with 1 child, but neither her husband nor the child appear in the household. The 1900 census in same location shows Hester as born Dec 1884, age 15.

Hope this gives you a few leads... Good luck in your search..

Hi Lina,

thank you so much for this, Ezekial and Boston Jones I already had but you gave me a very good lead for Nina and Heater it's it harder to find the girls cause they marry and if you don't know the married name you can not find who they are married too but thank you for this information this will give me a lead on there children I hope now
