Joseph Jones was a quartermaster in the CSA and married Emma Herndon [no dates]. My father said they were from "up around Hartwood or Garrisonville." They had three or four children that were placed in various relatives' homes due to that parents' early deaths.
Children are: Ida Josephine Jones, Suzzie Anne Jones, Nora Roberta Jones [1886-1955]who is my grandmother, and possibly Jesse James Jones [aka "Horse Trader Jim"]who was killed when a wagon dog and chain snapped and hit him.
My mother stills says that my father's people were from Stafford. Anyone that can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
