I see you had two queries on the Jones family dated 2001.
Have you collected any new information?
I am the Grandaughter of Joseph Harrison Jones s/o Oliver Perry Jones s/o Nacy Harrison Jones s/o James Jones.
There is information on this family at Ancestry World Tree Project :Ricketts by Janet Ricketts.
Also at LDS is information posted by Norma R. Rock who lives in UT.
I have some descendant information on Grandfather Joseph H. Jones four chldren, also have contct with two other KZNS that represent the descendants from Carrie Jones and Maime Jones.
One question I have is where did you get the "Park" Co, IN?
OLIVER PERRY JONES military records have "Pike" Co., IN as the POB.
I have Queried the Pike Co. IN message board, and you have queried the Park Co. IN message board.
Here is my work in progress:
OLIVER PERRY JONES b: 14 may 1840 in Pike Co, Indiana.
(1880 census has Oliver born in Virginia = enumerator error)
I have a copy of OLIVER'S military papers that show:
(He called the civil war the "WAR OF THE REBELLION") :>))
22 July 1862 mustered as a private in Company "A"100th Regiment
08 Aug 1864 transferred as Corporal to Company "K" 1st U.S. Engineer Corps.

23 Aug 1866 in Naperville, Du Page County, Ill
(directly west of Chicago)
Married Catherine Elizabeth Hood b: Nov 1848 Saratoga, N.Y.("Katie"
he called her)
1880 census for Crystal, Tama County, Iowa lists Oliver, his wife
Catherine , and five children, one of them being my grandfather:
Joseph Harrison Jones.
(Oliver's father born Virginia, mother born S. Carolina)
(Catherine's father & mother both born in NY)
(children all born in Iowa)
.......Indiana, Illinois, Iowa...he is slowly edging west.
Family story has him coming to California in 1887 on a real estate
promotional train ( I suppose he was with his wife and children)
Oliver's children were born :
CARRIE R JONES 04 JULY 1868
ROBERT F JONES 01 NOV 1869
MAMIE M. JONES 07 OCT 1872
JOSEPH HARRISON 16 DEC 1875

1900 census for Kern county, CA
(Dist #5 Enum dist #33 pg. 6)
lists Oliver, his wife Catherine and only Joseph.
(JOSEPH HARRISON JONES married my grandmother LOURENA ALICE WILKINSON

Oliver was a physician, (assisted in my grandfather Joseph's
Oliver was horticulturist/nurseryman, real estate investor in Santa
He played the violin well.
Oliver received his service disability pension from 19 May 1910
through to his death. Kate received untill 12 Aug 1912.

age: 71 yrs
Place of death: 30
date of death: 10/22/11 (22 Oct 1911)

This was pretty hard to read.

Well that was more than I thought I had, but now, I would like to
tie this family ancestors and descendants together.
