There is a record in the Bureau of Land Management GLO of Robert Manly Jones purchasing 40 acres in St. Clair County in 1850. There is a Robert M Jones in St. Clair County in my family line who fits this age group. He was the son of William Henry Jones from SC. He was born abt 1828, married Elizabeth Langford, and came to Texas before 1860. We were trying to find out if he was Robert Manly Jones.
