Billy Jones was born about 1915 and went to Lane High School in Charlottesville, VA (probably graduating 1933) where he played football.... Billy was my ailing 97 year old mother-in-laws 1st boyfriend. She had gone to VA with her sister to help an aunt take care of her children. I have since found my mother-in-law's 1932 Lane HS yearbook with a Billy Jones in it.
I discovered Billy Jones exisitance when she sent me for a brooch in her jewelry box and told me her first boyfriend had given it to her. She had never mentioned him before and neither my husband nor his brother were aware of him or the brooch...
The brooch will go to my mother-in-laws great granddaughter and I hoped to garner a little info about Billy Jones to add to the note I will put with it.
I believe when my mother-in-law moved back to Maine, Billy visited her twice and she visited him twice back in VA - not an easy feat back then. She said they grew apart when each went to college.
