I don't remember if you and I have ever made contact but since you have a Calvin jones I thought we should. Now I too have Calvin Jones, and my father is named after his. Now I always thought my great-grandfather was John Calvin and went by "Calvin but have heard he was Calvin J. Now I don't know the parentage of my Calvin J. or for sure where he was born but know he married and raised children in Franklin Co, Alabama. I am sure that they migrated there from the Carolinas, Mississipi, Tenn, or Georgia. Now my Calvin was born in 1866, when was your Calvin Jr. born?? Did they ever live in Alabama? I would be interested to see the names of his siblings to see if there is a match. I know that there is somehowa Morgan related throught marriage somewhere. You mention Indian blood, my Calvin was 1/2 Cherokee according to my Grandfather, i believe Calvins parents died early on and he was raised by others. His Mother wouold have been Cherokee.
Carol,my Calvin Jones was born c 1833 in Jones County,NC and died before or in 1900. He married Elizabeth Connor on April 21,1853.I have no other info on her except her death was before 1900.

I also have email from someone saying Nancy Jones was first wife of this John Wiley. Have not been able to prove it though.

Does any of this sound familiar?
Thanks for your reply,Kathy
Thanks for all the info. your Calvins Jr. birth is very close to mine within a few years but wrong spouse. I only wish I had as much information on his family as you do on yours.
Besides the name Calvin you had one a surname Morgan, now my dad always mentioned Morgans as having married into the family somehow. I believe my mothers Clay nside married Morgans from North Carolina.
Calvin J. Jones born 5-02-1866 died October 22, 1941 buried Cherry Hill Baptist Cemetery, Franklin Co, Alabama. He married Agnes A. Thorn daughter of J.W. Thorn, she was born January 20, 1874 and died May 20, 1920. Their children were John Robert Claude Jones, born 2-28-1900, (my grandfather) he married Dessie Hyde, daughter of John R. Hyde and Sarah "Sallie" Holloway, Nettie Jones married a Truman Stout, Nelson Jones married Buella Pace, Fred Jones married Ulla Pace, Robert Mataugh married Kate Steels.
At this time they were in Franklin Co. Alabama, around Vina, Newberry, Cherokee, Red Bay areas. Calvin J. mother was Cherokee Indian that is all I know about her, one of his brothers was Marion Jones, I believe he had a sister named Lucy.
