I have become interested in Asbury Capers Jones and think I can help all of you. First of all, he was not the son of "D.K." Jones! This is an abbreviation for "Don't Know" on Asbury's death certificate. The informant simply did not know who his parents were. Also, he probably was not born at Macon -- but nearby in Putnam County, Georgia, where many of his Jones relatives were living at the time of his birth.

Asbury was the son of William Cole Jones and Eleanor/Elender, and he was the son of Abraham Parham Jones and Ann Cole. There is a Bible in the Veal Family that ties this all together. It names "Ashberry Casper Jones" born 22 Jul 1822 (not 1818) and this has to be the same person. For more on this bible record, please visit:

I am a descendant of William's brother James Jones, and I wonder if any of you know any male Jones descendants of Asbury who have, or would be willing to have their DNA tested? I am happy to share my tree and other information with you -- and hope to hear from some of you soon. Best, Stephen McLeod
