On last week's post, Thankful Thursday: Thankful To Have Found Elizabeth Jones, I found the names of several of my 2nd great grand aunt's relatives listed in her will.  Here's the page that contained the names:

Now you are probably wondering who were all these people? Here's a refresher on the Jones family line. This is well help show how everyone was connected.

My 3rd great grandparents:  

Cesar Jones (b. 1821--d. Aug. 14, 1899) was married to Mary Mitchel Jones (b. Jan. 21. 1823--d. Feb. 22, 1900.)

To this union the following children were born.

Lewis Oliver Jones (b. Jan. 14, 1838--d. Dec. 28, 1925)

Violet Ann Jones Devaughn (b. Oct. 21, 1845--Dec. 2, 1880)

Alexander Hamilton Jones(b. Mar. 5, 1852--May 22, 1915)--my 2nd great grandfather

William Henry Jones (b. abt 1852--Oct. 30, 1919)

Elizabeth Jones (b. abt 1863--May 17, 1946)

Caroline Jones (Currently, I am unsure of when she was born. I believe she died sometime before 1900.)

Now back to Elizabeth's will. The relatives listed in it were her nieces and nephews.

Louie was actually supposed to be Lovie. Lovie Watson was the daughter of Alexander Hamilton Jones.

The following were the children of Lewis Oliver Jones:

James E. Jones
Benjamin Jones
George Jones
William Jones

These were the children of William Henry Jones:  

Elizabeth Jones
Henry C Jones
Ceaser N. Jones
Harvey Jones

Viola Jones was Harvey's daughter.

The great thing about this will is that I lost track of the individuals who left Morehead City when they grew up. Here were addresses! At last, they were found.
