James Augustus Jones was my great grandfather. There is very little information on the Jones side so I am hoping that as I go through the Ancestry DNA matches, I will find someone who is related.
We do know he married Nancy Elizabeth Findley and they had eight children, including my grandmother Nancy Ellen Jones and her twin, Allen Augustus Jones. This information is documented but beyond the children, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of clues.
James was born in Texas, verified by census reports. He was a farmer and owned his own farm. He lived his entire life in Texas. That's all the information I have. Sad isn't it?
