Pat,
In 1871 Orphan's Home of the Southern Georgia Conference opened in Norcross, Ga and in 1873 it moved to Decatur, Ga. I had relatives that were "supposedly" sent to an orphanage for a short period of time because their parents were destitute. I don't know how true this is but I'm trying to find out and they, too, were from the Jones family.I understand the main source of information from this orphanage is the Methodist Children's Home in Macon, Ga. You might want to check that out. There are a lot of Jones' in Ga. My branch (and several others) are from Harris County and surrounding counties,including the city of Columbus which is in Muscogee Co.. Maybe this will give you a starting point. Good luck.
