I got a copy of the marriage certificate of Carl and Anna Jones from St. Joseph's in Baton Rouge and this is what it said - Spanish Marriage Records, page 515: Marble, Karl, a Calvinist of North America (Abner & Jerobia Marble) m. 26 Jan 1797 at Natchez, Anna Jones, a Calvinist of Illinois (James and Sara Jones, res. of this place for 8 years) wit. Jacob Stampley, age 34 years & of North Carolina & George Jones of Virginia, age 30 years (SJO-84B, 7) also (SJO-83, 39) St. Joseph's of Baton Rouge.
I am interested in this because of George Jones, whom I'd guess to be a brother of Anna - or at least kin. They lived in Jefferson and Claiborne cos. Mississippi.
I was interested to learn that Illinois was part of the Northwest Territory, which had been a part of Virginia, of all places until 1787, so it would be difficult to pinpoint where they migrated from exactly unless the passport gives more details.Eva, George's wife, was from Virginia, according to the 1850 census.He died in 1833 in Claiborne Co MS.
Do you know anything more about Anna Jones or her family?
