The Joneses

AARON JONES

By family knowledge we know that Aaron was born abt. 1790/1795 in Indiana. 
We don't know who his parents are. He was married to Jane ( Jones )
last name unknown, who was from Kentucky. 
Aaron is on the 1840 Desha Co. Ark. census.
His family is on the 1850 Drew Co. Smith Township , Ark. census.
 
ARRON and JANE JONES
I can't be 100 percent sure this is my Gt.Gt. Grandparents, perhaps
95 percent sure. We know Aaron was born in Indiana in the late 1700s,
my guess would be 1790. Jane was born in Kentucky 1793. This is what
i know about them. Aaron Jones , listed as Stepfather to Eliz. Yates
who married John Sergent on 27 December 1835 by Jas. Bell. This
marriage took place in Calloway County Kentucky. Aaron married Jane
Love 27 February 1832 in Calloway Co. Kentucky. They lived in or near
Bear Creek, Calloway Co. Ky. Tax records from 1831 to 1837 show this
to be where they were. The 160 acre farm was sold as far as i can tell
about 1837. 20 slaves are listed in 1833 but i would question this
information. We know Jane (maiden name unknown) was married to # 1
husband Yates. To #2 husband William Love, 1822, and to #3 husband
Aaron Jones 1832. I couldn't find where Aaron had any other marrages
before Jane. Sometime around 1836/1837 they left Kentucky and went
to Arkansas. My Gt.Grandfather James Marion Jones was born in Drew
County Arkansas in 1837. Aaron Jones and family are in Desha Co.
Arkansas 1840 census. This county borders Drew county. The 1850 Drew
County, Arkansas census shows Jane as head of the household, with
son Jackson, Robert, James Marion, and daughters Clara, Mary, and
Martha. The first 4 were born in Kentucky the others born in Arkansas.
This census shows Jane to be 57 years old. Aaron is not on this census.
Land records show that John Sergent and Eliz. had land in Arkansas
near to Aaron and Jane. This is why i believe this is my GtGt Grandparents.
