I have some documented information for 8 generations of my husband's Jones line starting with Steve Jones b.abt 1850 in Romania and ending with the Jones babies born in 2006. If anyone has information about this line, please contact me!
Steve Jones b.abt 1850-Rom/Austria. Immigrated in 1885, widowed by 1910. Not sure of how many children, this is what we have so far: 1. James b.abt1873-Rom/Austria. Third wife was Annie George.(I am in contact with a direct member of this line) 2. Pete b.btw 1870&1885-btw Rom and New York (1910 census says born France; 1930 says NY; family says born on ship coming to America). Married Mary Clines, although family says Sally. 14 children. 3. George b.abt 1881-NY. Married Donah; son Pete b.1910. 4. Julia b.abt 1892-MO 5. Bud b.abt 1897-IA. Married Juanita Stanley in 1912-MO 6. Stanley b. 1899-WI
My husband's line is from Steve's son Pete. Pete's children include Buster, Joe "Choby", Gustaf "Kousta", Pouka, Big John, Stanley (married Ada - queen of Gypsies) another Stanley married Rose George, Big Georgie, Juanita married a Stanko, and George "Kanu" who is my husband's grandfather (moosha).
The family occupations included horsetrading, carnivals, steel work. They were very migrant, traveling the entire US usually.
I would like to have information about the ship name, Steve's wife, what the surname was in the "old country", and more info on the Pete Jones line.
