Surnames: Jones
Joseph Jones (9 Aug 1819-4 Jan 1899) buried at Friends Quaker Cemetery was the son of Samuel Jones (12 Sep 1775-14 Sep 1859 and his first wife, Joanna [Allen] Jones ( 25 June 1786-ca. 1841). According to Friends Church records, both the parents are buried in unmarked graves at the same cemetery.

The Joseph Jones who married Tammer [Bryant?] was a different Joseph Jones. Both Joseph Jones may be tracked thru the 1860, 1870, and 1880 Census records.

Much of the above information is from Friendsville Quarterly Meeting/Friendsville Monthly Mtg. In 1990 represenataives of the church arranged with the McClung East Tennessee Historical Library and Collection, a branch of the Knox County Library System, to microfilm Friends Church Records. There were 7 microfilm rolls. Of special interest to many is the Friendsville Quaker Cemetery transcription by Phil Bivins which is 29 pages in length. Rather than simply reporting tombstone transcriptions, Mr. Bivins and church representatives cross referenced inscriptions with other church records and, in many instances, futher identified many individuals as "son of," "2nd wife of," and so on and, in some instances, named persons buried in the Cemetery in unmarked graves. So far as I know, the only copies of the microfilm are copies held by McClung Library in Knoxville (who microfilmed the records) and the Blount County, TN Public Library System.

The list of Joneses in the Friends Quaker Cemetery transcription is 3 pages long, single spaced. I saw no reference to the Jospeph Jones who married Tammer Bryant or even to the Bryant surname.

BLOUNT COUNTY, TENNESSEE TOMBSTONE RECORDS, a WPA publication, reported an inventory of tombstones at Friends Cemetery many years ago. In it, on page 164 of the book and page 6 of the Friends Cemetery section find:

Joseph Jones (6 Jul 1806-11May 1884
and, next to this entry,
Tamer Jones
wife of Joseph Jones (26 Mar 1815-11May 1879)

There is enough age difference in the ages of these two Joseph Jones that they are easy to differentiate in census records. The Joseph Jones who married Tamer was widowed in 1880 and was enumerated at Hughes Mill, Loudon County, TN.

(Note to 1880 Keokuk Co, IA Census: The Sarah Jones mentioned above is not David's mother. His mother, Rebecca, d. 1862. This would have to be David's Mother-in-law, Sarah Smitzer Jones.)
David Jones, M.D., a prominent old settler of Richland township Keokuk Co, Iowa, was born in Blount Co, Tennessee, October 31, 1829, and is a son of James and Rebecca (Morgan) Jones , the former of whom was born and reared near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Thomas Jones, the grandfather of Dr. Jones , was born in Wales and came in boyhood to America with his parents , who settled in Pennsylvania. This family has been members of the Society of Friends for generations. James Jones was for a great many
years an elder and was a man of most estimable life, who died at the age of seventy years. He married Rebecca Morgan, whose great-grandfather accompanied William Penn on his second voyage to America and was one of Penn's admirers and supporters. Thomas Morgan, the maternal grandfather of Dr. Jones, was of English descent , a farmer by occupation, and a man of prominence and respectability. The mother died at the age of seventy-three years. The parents of Dr. Jones had six sons to grow to
manhood and two daughters to reach maturity.
Dr. Jones was the youngest son of his parents, and he was reared in the old home in Tennessee , and attended the local schools. Later he was sent to a boarding-school at New Garden, North Carolina, which has now been transformed into Guilford College. At the age of twenty years he began teaching and followed this profession in North Carolina and Tennessee, later becoming one of the instructors at Friendsville Institute, in the latter state, which position he held for two years. On 1861 he came to Keokuk Co, Iowa, and began teaching at Pleasant Plain, in Jefferson Co, continuing until 1873 and most acceptably filling positions both in town and country. During this time the young man had been studying medicine and in the fall of 1873 began practice in Richland, remaining active in this profession until 1898, when he retired.
In 1852 Dr. Jones was married to Rebecca P. Jones, who is a daughter of James and Sarah (Smitzer) Jones, of Tennessee, and to this union was born a family of seven sons and one daughter , as follows: James M.(N); Elisha R..(Rufus) Francis A. (Alcwin); Mattie E.(Martha) who married William A. Goodman; John L.; Walter S. Benjamin C.(Cl ayton) and Joseph C. Dr. Jones is a leading member of the Society of Friends in this locality, and for more than twenty years has been an elder, in simplicity of life exemplifying the admirable principles he professes. In his early days he was a Whig in political sentiment, and is now a deeply interested Republican. Dr. Jones is one of the most highly respected citizens of Richland.

The reason the Ransom Jones family moved from Tenn was the family were Quakers and Ransom went in the 4th Tenn Calvary and the church disowned him. After he got out of the army he went home with a buddy he met while a POW and married the buddy's younger sister Susan Mary Smith then they moved to Missouri and then into Oklahoma."
2. Home in 1880: Osage, Benton, Arkansas
******************
Ransom Marion Jones, a tall raw-boned twenty-six year old bachelor, and son of Quaker parents, hitched his favorite horse to the rail fence near the Maryville train station just after dawn, on the morning of October 2, 1862. In just over an hour, he would board the train with over one hundred fellow Union Army volunteers from Blount County bound for Montgomery, TN, more than 170 miles away, where Capt. William Cate was assembling troops for the 4th Regiment Tennessee Cavalry. His cousins William and Samuel would ride one horse into town later in the day to retrieve the pony and take it back to the family plantation near Friendsville, in the Tennessee River watershed.
For weeks now, Ransom had been torn between the strong anti-war sentiments of the Newberry Meeting (Quaker church), and his own pent-up passion for joining the quickly escalating conflict between the North and the South. His mother Sarah had long tried to persuade Ransom to remain true to his upbringing, and had even given him a new bible on his twenty-third birthday in 1858 (from war documents). Ransom realized his decision might mean life or death, or at the very least, the loss of any inheritance he might receive from his hard-working father upon his death. More than one of his Quaker relatives had been disowned for lesser offenses. A tearful Sarah hugged Ransom good-bye after he had finished up the chores in the pre-dawn darkness for one last time, and snatched up his leather satchel
that he had carefully packed the night before. Ransoms four siblings had married and left home years earlier, leaving him to shoulder a big part of the work running the family farm with his father James. (Note: Sam Houston, another Blount County soldier, came to the area in 1807 at the age of fourteen, where he lived with his family on a 419 acre land grant along Baker Creek just a few miles from the Jones clan. He lived with the Cherokee Indians just across the Tennessee River for more than a year. He volunteered for the War of 1812, but spent time fighting the Creek Indians before embarking on a distinguished career in the military and in politics).
Ransom was the youngest child of James and Sarah. Little is known about Sarah, but she may have been the source for the Cherokee blood often mentioned by Ransom and later by his children. Ransom was born in Friendsville on October 20, 1835. Blount County borders land which was inhabited by thousands of Eastern Cherokees during the time of the marriage of Ransom's parents, estimated date 1824. In 1798, several dozen of the Quaker Joneses (by way of Philadelphia over a century prior, and from Ireland in 1711) made the mountainous trek to eastern Tennessee from Orange County, North Carolina. Orange County is in the north central part of the state, near the cities of Burlington and Durham, and twenty miles south of the Virginia state line. The promising new virgin lands in Tennessee were southwest of Knoxville, only fifteen miles past the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, and twenty miles northwest of the western tip of North Carolina. The rich bottom lands of Gallaher Creek would
soon be transformed into huge plantations and farms, and Friendsville would become a bustling Quaker stronghold. *Ransom's activities on the morning he left for the Civil War have been dramatized based on knowledge of the area and the period.
Ransom's army and pension records, researched by a grandson, Raymoth Jones, of Sacramento, show him to have been six feet tall, light-haired, yellow-eyed, and of fair complexion. He was a private in rank during his entire enlistment, which began on October 15, 1862, and lasted until July 12, 1865. His specialties were driving brigade teams, and transporting horses for his unit. Company A, under Capt. Cate, saw action in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. (Some sources list the unit as East Tenn Cav).
*The following notations came from the actual Company Muster Roll cards in Ransom's file: Company Descriptive Book shows him driving brigade team since Dec. 1862, returned to company Aug. 30, 1863, captured south of Atlanta July 31, 1864, rejoined company June 30, 1865. Company return (report) shows April 1863 driving team, May 1863 on extra or daily duty, brigade team since Dec. 1862, Jan. 1864 absent (sent to Memphis for horses), July 1864 missing in action from July 31, 35 miles south of Marietta, GA, August 1864 rear of Atlanta, missing in action since July 31.

Retained under G.O. No. 101, 1 Colt pistol, $8.00. (Nashville, TN from other records)
Handwritten footnotes from the War Department to Ransom on June 6, 1889, rejecting his pension application, says: "Prisoner of war records show him captured at Marietta, GA August 1, 1864. Confined at Goldsboro, NC., dates not given. Paroled at N.E. Ferry, NC, March 4, 1865 (one memorandum mentions parole from Wilmington, NC). "ajstd?" at College Green Barracks, MD Mar. 14, 1865. Admitted to Hospital Div. No. 1, Annapolis, MD, same day, cause not stated. Sent to Baltimore, MD Mar. 22, 1865. Name does not appear upon the records of Florence, SC on file. The records of this office furnish no further evidence of disability".
Another notation on a pension application answer states, "No charge of desertion stands against him on rolls or returns". On his pension application of Feb. 16, 1889, Ransom asserted that he was "injured in July 1863 while in line of duty at Winchester, TN (80 miles SE of Nashville), and that he had his right hip injured while in a charge by his horse rearing and falling on him.
He also contracted frozen feet and legs in Florence prison in February 1865 and was treated for frozen feet and legs in Jarvis Hospital, Baltimore, MD, in March 1865."
On a general affadavit from McDonald Co, MO, dated March 12, 1892, listing Ransom as a resident of SW City, Ransom states "that he is unable to understand why this case should have been subject to such extensive delay in the S.E. Division of the Pension Office as he has furnished definite proof of the incurrence of his disabilities in the military service. His disability arising from frozen feet and legs was incurred in Florence Prison Feb. 1865 and he was treated in James Hospital Baltimore in Mar. 1865 and said disability has continued ever since as shown by testimony of G. A. Smith, E. G. Smith (both Smiths were brothers-in-law), J. A. Jones and J. W. Crick. Capt. W. N. Cate testifies to disability of feet when he returned to regiment after his confinement in prison so that he could not do any duty before he was mustered out.
(Ransom told his sons of being practically "starved to death" while in confinement). Affadavit of Orderly Sergeant B. Jones goes to show that claimant was thrown from his horse in the summer of 1863 and received injuries of the hip and back and that he sent claimant to hospital in an ambulance (to Nashville other records show) in June or July 63. Dr. W. Long who treated claimant in 1866 is dead. Dr. Hopkins who treated claimant in 1874/75 cannot be found. Claimant respectfully solicits a disposition of his case on the evidence submitted of disability of feet and legs also of injury to right hip either or both as his claim has been delayed to such an extent that he needs relief on account of his disabled condition".
On an affadavit concerning another pension application, dated Nov. 8, 1902, Ransom's brother-in-law George A. C. Smith stated that he had met Ransom in the fall of 1865 in Clinton Co, KY. He swears that, "Ransom was afflicted with a lame back and a lame right hip.
Ransom was then a young man of good habits and I am satisfied that the trouble in his back and hip was not caused by vicious habits but was caused as represented by the claimant.
That is by his horse falling on him while in battle. I have been well acquainted with Ransom since the fall of 1865 and lived near him until the year 1890. Since then we have not lived near each other but have corresponded. During all this time we lived near each other, Ransom was afflicted with the lame back and hip. There was a lump on his right hip about the size of a hen's egg caused by the horse falling on him. During all this time from 1865 to 1890 Ransom was not able to work, that is any effort to do hard work caused him great pain on account of the disabilities mentioned, and during all this time Ransom was a man of good morals and habits". Ransom eventually received his pension #836614 after 1902 and before 1912, when he applied for his old-age pension.
After his discharge in July 1865, Ransom went home briefly to Blount County (See other information below concerning a revenge-seeking mission). He lived for a while in Knox County, but after a short time traveled to Clinton Co, KY where he lived in or near the home of his future wife Susan for about two years. He had met her brother Fountain Perry Smith during the war. Fountain served with the 8th Tenn Cav. (Army of the Confederacy). One theory is that Fountain may have been a prison guard at Florence, where Ransom was imprisoned with other Union troops. In August 1867 Ransom and seventeen-year-old Susan Mary Smith traveled 25 miles across the state line to Jamestown, Fentress Co, TN where they were married. That same year Ransom, his young bride Susan and her 14 year old brother George
started the trek westward, first stopping in Illinois where they lived for 2 years or so in an undetermined location until late 1869. Ransom's grandson Everett Jones has a copy of Ransom's I.O.O.F. (Odd Fellows) membership transfer from an Illinois lodge. Also, the oldest child Oscar was listed on a later census as having been born in Illinois.
From Illinois, Ransom, Susan, Oscar and George traveled to Cane Creek, Carter County, Missouri northwest of Poplar Bluff where they show up on the 1870 census. It is believed that Arlena was also born in Carter County in 1871. If this be the case, Ransom probably made the move south around 1872 to near Paris, TX, where Will, Edd and Albert were born between November 1873 and May 1877. Several of Ransom's grandsons heard talk of the Paris area during their youth. It is believed Ransom contracted with a number of ranchers to fence their properties. No documentation on the exact county has been located as of 2003. The family then moved back north to the tri-state area (Rogers, AR/Southwest City, MO/Grove, OK) in 1877 or 1878, and Dexter Wesley (Deck) was born near Rogers in April 1879. Ransom is said to have helped construct the first brick building in Rogers, AR. Note: Deck said in a written testimony dictated to his grandson Larry Briggs in May 1960 that he moved with his family in December 1887 at age 8, to a farm between Grove and Jay in Indian Territory. It is believed that Marion Earl and Can Zadie were born there.
In April 1889, Ransom traveled west to the eastern edge of Oklahoma Territory (Guthrie or Oklahoma City area) by team and wagon, a distance of over 200 miles, to take place in the famous land run. Deck, who turned 11 years old on the trip, remembers taking part in the legendary event with his father (Will Jones, a brother to Deck also made the trip, and there may have been other sons along). After staking a claim either in Guthrie or Oklahoma City, Ransom sold his land rights on the spot to a lady who offered him enough money to make him happy. He never moved his family to that area. Later documents show Ransom moving back to Missouri for a short time (George Smith of Benton Co, AR said he lived near Ransom until 1890).
Ransom's grandsons, Loyd S. Jones (b. 1911 and Earl T. Jones (b. 1927), both repeated accounts by their father Deck Jones, of Ransom living in fear and being very nervous. While farming land rented from Cherokee Indians in Delaware CO, OK, Ransom would constantly look about for intruders. According to Deck, Ransom often mentioned that he had gone back to his birthplace in Tennessee to "settle a score" after the Civil War. One possibility is that the mission was accomplished just after his discharge, precipitated by information he received while in service. The other possibility is that he made this trip to Blount County from his temporary home in Kentucky, and that the move to Illinois in 1867 and on to Missouri was more than just an adventure. Ransom reportedly had information that his father James had
been attacked by "two renegades who never fought for the North or the South", and hit over the head with the butt of a rifle. James reportedly suffered brain damage and was "never the same". There is also speculation that the trip for revenge might have involved a killing. This has not been substantiated, and the date of the mission is not known for sure. Part of the logic that the trip occured prior to Ransom's move west, is that his new residences were several hundred miles from his native Blount County. The fact that Ransom eventually ended up in Indian Territory, a haven for many people trying to escape their pasts, gives some creedence to the theory that he may have been on the run.
One side note concerning the farm land in Delaware County involves a story Deck Jones related to his sons. The Cherokee owner of the acreage rented by Ransom had a track record of waiting for the crop to be harvested by different renters, then forcibly taking possession of the entire crop, instead of just his share. When the ruthless land owner tried this tactic on Ransom, Mr. Jones pulled a cap-and-ball pistol from the tool pocket of the old horsedrawn cultivator and the Indian man ran for his life. Deck also told of repeatedly traveling the 20 or so miles to the farm from neigboring Missouri or Arkansas as a lad of 15 or so. He would camp out a week at a time by himself on the Indian farm land, doing his own cooking, and cultivating the crop by day.
After 1890, his movements are hard to trace, but Ransom evidently moved his family back to a farm near Grove, OK, in the Grand River bottoms, where they lived until the early 1900's.
The exact year of their move to Chelsea isn't known, but he re-applied for pension benefits in Rogers County on June 8, 1908. The Chelsea homeplace was a small square house located not too far from Deck's place. When Titus Raymon passed away in Arkansas, his wife Lena, a daughter to Ransom, came back to live in a small house on the same property. Ruth Jones Marrs, Ransom's granddaughter, remembers walking across the field to see her grandmother Susan at the Chelsea farm. Note: Susan was of a "short, chubby stature" according to Ruth.
Ransom always wore a beard and moustache.
Although Ransom and wife Susan were "old time Methodist" for many years, they converted to the Pentecostal faith late in life, and attended church in Chelsea. It is believed that Susan's Kentucky people were Methodist since Ransom came from a Quaker background.
Ransom died near Chelsea at the age of 84 years, 3 months and 17 days, on Feb. 7, 1920.

During my visit to Friends Cemetary in about 1998 found an older portion of the cemetery completely grown up in trees, brush, with some tombstones toppled, or in a covered state by vegetation. I only hope these graves were found by transcribers when the list was made. William T. McClurg

Am looking for information on Joseph Jones (6 Jul 1806- 11 May 1884) and his wife, Tamer (Bryant) Jones (26 Mar 1815 - 11 May 1879). They had a daughter, Sarah Jane, who married William Drury Richards.

Do you know the microfilm numbers for the copies at the Blount County Library? In the card catalog it only lists 5 reels for monthly meeting records. I didn't see anything about cemetery transcriptions. Thanks
