Surnames: JONES - House
I have JONES in my family so your post caught my eye. I have an ANDY JONES that married my GG Aunt Sesel JOHNSON in St Francis County (they had a small store in Widener next to the old cotton gin for years). I noted the name HOUSE also....I do know that some HOUSE and JONES families came in from Hardin County, TN along with Johnson, Clark, Devazier, Hardin, House, Simmons, Kilpatrick, Cherry, etc late 1890's and early 1900's (I suspect picking up Indian lands in the area that came available and some families were traveling on through to the west (OK and TX land grabs). If you find your Jones family has Andy Jones, please, let's share some info.
