Alexander Hamilton Jones (March 5, 1852--May 22, 1915) was the son of a Cesar Jones (1821--Aug. 14, 1899) and a Mary H Mitchel (Jan. 21, 1823--Feb. 22, 1900)
The other children of Cesar and Mary were:
Lewis Oliver Jones (Jan. 14, 1838--Dec. 28, 1925)
Violet Jones Devaughn (Oct. 21, 1844--Dec. 2, 1880)
William Henry Jones (1852--Oct. 30, 1919)
Lizzie Jones (born about 1863--no date of death could be found at this time)
Here is a screen shot of the 1880 census showing the family: Alexander is referred to as A H Jones on the record with Rosa listed as Rosetta.
From this record I found out the family came from Onslow County, NC and probably transplanted to Morehead City after the Civil War.
Alexander and Rosa Jones together purchased several properties together. The people at the Carteret County Register Deeds have always been very helpful when I have made requests for deed information. Thanks to them I have copies of my 2nd great grandparents deeds.
Okay I am being challenged to a few rounds of Wii tennis. Got to make like Venus Williams now. Ha. Somehow I know I will be sore after this.
