I posted the original query in this thread. Now I have some information beginning with Charles Jones who died before 1825 in Cumberland County, Kentucky.
My one question now is what happened to John Henry Jones, twin brother of William Thomas Jones, born about 1831 in Kentucky, and is in the 1850 census of Dade, enumerated under his stepfather's name - Bain.
