William Jones & Deborah McVey

William Jones & Deborah McVey

Classification: Query
Surnames: Jones, McVey
I'm looking for information on a William Jones who married Deborah McVey and came to Clinton County, Ohio with family around 1810 from Tennessee. I've seen a tree (such as http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/l/a/n/Lois-Lander...) which states he was born in North Carolina in 1768 and died in Clinton County on 7 Aug 1841. If there are Jones researchers on this board with information on the family, I'd be interested if you have come across references to any of William's brothers - possibly Aquila, Thomas, Harwood, John Jones. They were all in Grainger/Jefferson County area of Tennessee in the late 1790s.

Children of this couple include Dr. Aquila Jones and seven other Jones who died in Clinton County, Ohio.

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1930 is the last available census at this time.

1940 census will be released on April 2, 2012. It will take several months to transcribe all the states.


Facts you should know about the early census records -
All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.
NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces +++

Patrick'

I am a direct descendant of William Jones and Deborah Mcvey. I live in Clinton County and I would really like to share research with you. Please contact me directly at my home email address (tracy@tjonesfamily.com) if you prefer or you can go through ancestry. My tree is public so you should be able to go see it. My name is Tracy Jones and the tree is simply called Jones Family Tree.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Tracy,

Recently, a Jones cousin of mine tested his yDNA at FTDNA. He matches a man who I believe may descend from your ancestor William Jones/wife Deborah McVey. The match's ancestors moved from Clinton Co to Hardin Co., TN then on to Harrison Co., TX.

My cousin's lineage is rooted in the Sandy Creek area of Randolph Co., NC. In an article which I published a few years back in a local journal, I tracked this line to 17th century Baltimore Co, MD. The proof isn't complete, but I will say the names Aquilla, Thomas and Charles are commonplace in the lineage I identified. I'd like to compare notes with you if you are interested.

LW,

I would really love to compare notes. William is as far back as I have gotten on my Jones side. Unfortunately I am extremely busy with work right now but should be slowing down by late Sept / early Oct. Would it be ok for me to get back in touch with you then?

Thanks,
Tracy

I'd be interested in sharing information on this line too. I have loaded my DNA results on Gedmatch and it would be interesting to see if I share any connection with your Jones cousin.
