I have hit a dead end with my Jones in Unicoi, TN. There were two separate familes of Jones in that area that we've never linked together so assume they are quite distance, if any connection. I'll provide my info in hopes that you may have some info to share. My grandfather is Elbert John Jones, but there are documents showing his name as John Elbert Jones as well as a marriage license showing Elwood J. Jones. There are two Elbert Jones, so I've been careful to keep the line straight.
Elbert's father, was Rev. R. D. Jones (Assume it was Rev. R. David Jones). b. 1868, d. 1928.
His mother was Alice Rebecca Casteel, b. 6-16-1871, Scott County, VA; d. 11-6-1955, Johnson City, TN , both buried @Anderson Cemetary in Unicoi, TN.
Elbert had a lot of sisters and brothers, some full, some half, some step (adopted children by parents). His father was married once prior to marriage with Alice:
Rosie Jones (married a Carroll)
Ollie Jones (married a Humphreys)
Dall Jones ?
Cordie Jones ?
Alvin ? Jones (Agnes Spaller)
Elzie (or Elza) (wife was Arlee Rowe)
Ida Bowman (married Alex Payne)
Henry S. Bowman (wife's name is ? Neat ? )
maybe married a couple of times.
Frank Jones (married Ella May or Mae)
Elbert John Jones was married three times that I know of:
Agnes Emma Head
(marriage license said Elwood instead of Elbert)
