I am trying to research the origins of the name "Jones Creek" on a tributory to the Loxahatchee River here in Jupiter, Florida. I've found information that your ancestor, Sam Jones, was in South Florida at the right time. Do you have any information as to whether or not he ever lived in the Jupiter area or did he always live further south?
I write a column for a local newspaper about The Florida You Don't Know and one of my readers who lives along Jones Creek asked me where the name came from. No one really knows, but my research brought me to your ancestor.
