Surnames: Jones, Smith
Researching Unknown Jones b bet 1800-1830 in Jerusalem, NC. His son, Asa Iley Jones, b Aug. 1849 in NC moved to Floyd's Mill, AL (bet. 1849-1873). He married Alice/Allis Ophelia (possibly Smith) abt 1873 in AL and appears on the 1880 census there.

About 1879, he bought property in DeSoto, Clarke Co, MS and moved his family there. In 1880, he bought the former Veranda Hotel in DeSoto. Asa Iley (who also used names Arthur Iley or Edward Iley) was a Missionary Baptist Preacher.

Trying to connect with other Missionary Baptist Preachers from NC or AL. Also trying to find records of Jerusalem for the early 1800's.

Update. Alice's full name was Alice Ophelia Winsley or Winslow/Winslet, not Smith as previously thought.

I found their marriage record online. Ophelia Winslet married Asa Jones on Jan 28, 1872 in Muscogee, GA. Her daughter also called herself Ophelia, although I've seen her full name as Alice Ophelia (like her Mother). Laurene laurene777@yahoo.com

Update 2015 - (Alice) Ophelia Winslet married Asa Jones on Jan 28, 1782 in Muscogee, GA according to their marriage record online. This confirms that her maiden name was Wnslet and she was probably from Opelika, AL as it was only 29 miles away. That's where one of her children lists his birth city.
