My name is Chris Jones and I am researching my Jones family roots that seems to be centered around the Nassau/Duval county areas.
I see that his wife is a Hagan, which matches with what I have found in other references. (I think the Jones and Hagan families were close)
you mention that John Jones is one of the oldest graves in the cemetery. I was hoping to find out if any one of your members has more details about this person. Who was the cemetery named after? I see a lot of Jones family buried here.
Is there someone I should contact that might be able to help me?
Chris, Jim Miller requested that I do research on your 3 times G-grandfather John Alexander Jones... He was born in North Carolina 1802 and at one point migrated to Florida. In looking at TreeSearch.org a death certificate for John Alexander Jr. listed his Mother with the last name of McCormick. Mary Ann "Polly" McCormick was born 1805 in Georgia. She and John A Jones Sr married June11,1826. She passed in 1876 in FL.
Looking at the grave marker for John A Jones SR the wife is listed as Mary Ann Hagin.
I have not been able to find anymore information on John Sr or Mary Ann "Polly" McCormick.
