Yes, it is.I have looked through some transcribed records that are available on the Mason County GenWeb site.There were a couple of entries that mentioned William Jones, but I got the impression that it was probably not my William Jones.
I have not found him on any pension applications either.He may have never applied, even if he served.According to Harrison Jones' bio (from DeKalb Co. Ohio), his father went off to New Orleans and died there of yellow fever.That would have been when Harrison was a young adolescent (probably not later than 1825).
I'm sure that I have not seen all available court records.I'm sure that there is a good chance that there is some record just lying around somewhere that would help a lot--it's just finding it.
As for William's wife's name, it came from the bio of Harrison Jones.I suspect that it would be reasonably accurate, since the bio was done while Harrison was still living.I have to believe that he would have known his mother's name.
There is a discrepancy, though between Harrison's bio and his obituary.His obituary, for the most part is just an expansion of his bio--but it gives a different name for his mother.I'm not where I have access to that right now (and I can't remember the name given there), but I would think that if I were going to believe the information in one source or the other, I would go with the document that was done while Harrison was still living.
I have been tempted to buy a database on CD from Ancestry.com that supposedly has Kentucky marriages from 1787 to 1920 from "selected" counties.It goes on to say that it has the majority of KY counties.I may just break down and do it--just that soemthing tells me that it may be no use, either.
Another problem with William Jones.If I put any trust in the info from Harrison's bio, he moved around quite a lot and may not have left much in the way of a trail.While he was alive, he and his family were moving every couple of years or so.He probably spent the most time in one place (at least as an adult) in and around Mason County, KY. I say that, but don't really have much to back it with.The infamous bio (lol) just says that Harrison was born in Maysville, KY (Mason Co.)and that his parents were KY natives.It doesn't say that they had lived long in Mason Co.
Please do let me know if you think of anything or for sure if you locate anything.
If you want more information, I'll give ya anything that I have.
