I too am tracking a Charles Edwin Jones. However, your birthday must be an error. You list it as 1900 but then state that he and Ida were married in 1900. Do you have a birthday for him.
I'm tracking a Charles Edwin Jones who was born 28 November 1882, raised somewhere in Wisconsin, traveled extensively throughout the western US before settling down in Nebraska.He was said to have traveled to Alaska and lived there for a time around the turn of the century. It’s also said that he left Alaska and arrived in San Francisco the day after the 1906 earthquake.
