Just made a copy of the "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution". There are 10 James Jones listed. Could one of these possibly be the father of William Jones. William Jones is also listed in this Roster as being b Amherst County, Va. d Feb 12 1809 m Ann Freeman. The Roster says he first served in Virginia units. Thereafter, he served under Capts. Long, Malone, Joseph Hill, George McCanley and Cols. Marshall, Anderson, Peter Horry and Richard Richardson. He was in the battles at Gilford Courthouse and Eutaw Springs.
