The majority of the people will tell you that Stephen's father was Ambrose Jones of VA. I do not agree with that. There is no proof linking him to that family and that family has no connections in MD. I do know that these are really his children and this is be beginning of my Jones line.
Does anyone have Jones in this county at this time or a suggestion of where else I should look? I know many of the county records were distroyed.
