***Note:John Andrew Jones was the son of Rebecca Box Jones.In the 1880 census they listed him as a mulatto.That would mean a person of mixed race -- either African or American Indian.I have come across cases where it meant native American.That would mean that either Rebecca or William Andrew Jones was of a race other than typical caucasion.
Following is the son of John Andrew Jones in 1880.Notice that there is no race question, which meant obvious differenes had been blended out.
