Pioneer Monument, Moss Springs Cemetery, Jasper County, Missouri

Milly Catherine Spence was born in Randolph County, North Carolina, and she died at Fidelity, Jasper County, Missouri November 30, 1875. On February 2, 1820, Milly Catherine Spence married Lewis Jones (1795-1849) in Davidson County, Tennessee. Lewis was a son of Daniel Jones (1767-1815) and Sarah “Sallie” Bassett (1769-1837). He was born December 25, 1795 in Franklin County, Virginia, and he died in 1849 in Jackson Twp., Jasper, Missouri. I have already detailed the connection of the Daniel Jones family line with the Pasquotank County, North Carolina Jones families in “Elisha Spence (1776-1835)–Part One: Setting the Stage”. So I won’t repeat it here. However, a third Jones family will connect with the marriage of Lewis and Milly Catherine’s oldest daughter.

The children of Daniel Jones and Sallie Bassett follow:

1. John Jones (1788-aft.1817). As noted in an earlier article, John was appointed administrator of David Spence’s estate in October 1815 in Davidson County, Tennessee(1). David Spence (1786-1814) was a half brother of Elisha Spence and the son of David Spence (1735-1790) and Judah Perry (1748-1795). David Spence’s estate closed November 16, 1817(2). After that, John Jones disappears from the records. I do not know whether he ever married.

2. Ollie Bassett Jones (1789-1873). Ollie was born in 1797 in North Carolina, and she died July 10, 1873 in Fernvale, Williamson County, Tennessee. On November 28, 1809, Ollie married Samuel Smith (1786-1850) in Davidson County, Tennessee. Their children were: (a) James L. Smith (1810-1868); (b) Sarah “Sallie” Smith (1812-1895); (c) Nancy Smith (b. 1816)–she may not have survived; (d) Daniel Jones Smith (1816-1868); (e)Samuel Smith (1823-1892); (f) Abraham “Abram” Smith (1826-1914); (g) Amelia “Millie” Ann Smith (1828-1902); (h) James Smith (1829-1850); (i)Ollie Emaline Smith (1832-1917); (j) George Smith (b. 1836); (k) Willie Smith–no additional information. A portion of a road sign commemorating Fernvale reads as follows:

“In 1819, Samuel and Ollie Jones Smith settled along the South Harpeth River near the sulphur springs… Other historic families include Allen, Beasely, Givens, Harrison, Hughes, Inman, Ivy, Jones, King, Kirby, Page, Pewitt, Sullivan and White.”

3. Lewis Jones (1795-1849). Under discussion here.

4. James B. Jones (1797-1870). James was born November 21, 1797 in Tennessee, and he died January 20, 1870 in Newton County, Missouri. On September 8, 1821, he married Charlotte T. Greer (1803-1877) in Davidson County, Tennessee. This marriage is another connection to the third Jones family. Their children were: (a) Rachel Emeline Jones (1824-1861); (b) George Jones (b. 1831); (c) Mary Ann Jones (b. 1835); James Jones (b. 1838); and William Jones (1840-1882).

5. Nancy Jones (1801-1879). Nancy was born January 20, 1801 in Davidson County, Tennessee, and she died June 1879 in Davidson County, Tennessee. On March 4, 1820, she married Christopher Butts (1788-1870) in Davidson County, Tennessee. Their children were: (a) Lyda Butts, b.1817–Christopher may have had an earlier marriage; (b) James M. Butts (1828-1870); (c) Ollie E. Butts (1828-1899); (d) Parmelia Butts, b. 1831; (e) Daniel Butts, b. 1834; (f) Elizabeth Butts (1838-1913); (g) Christopher M. Butts, b. 1841.

6. Elizabeth Jones, b. 1808 in Tennessee. She may have died young.

The Family of Lewis Jones and Milly Catherine Jones

Lewis Jones appears on the 1820 Census for Perry County, Tennessee, dated January 4, 1820(1). A woman his mother’s age appears in the household along with some younger brothers and sisters. He lives in the same neighborhood as John David Spencer where Samuel and Daniel Spence lived. Lewis and Milly were married in Davidson County, Tennessee on February 2, 1820(2). A woman Milly Catherine’s age appears in the Elisha Spence household in 1820(3). The enumeration date is August 7, 1820. That would have been after her marriage. She may have returned home to help her step-mother with the children for a while, especially if Lewis was away or if there was an illness in the family. By 1830, the Lewis Jones family had returned to Davidson County(4).

The children of Lewis and Milly Catherine Spence Jones were:

1. Rebecca Jones (1820-1867). Rebecca was born in 1820 in Tennessee, and she died in 1867, probably in Sarcoxie, Jasper, Missouri. I haven’t found the exact location of her death as yet. She married Daniel Jackson Jones (1818-1859) on January 17, 1839 in Barry County, Missouri(5). This is marriage united two Jones families, thus connecting a third Jones family into this lineage. I will discuss that family in a separate section. Their children follow:

a. James H. Jones (1844-1920). James was born in January 1844 in Jasper County, Missouri, and he died after 1920 in Philipsburg, Granite, Montana. His wife was Rosa “Rosie” McKelby (1850-1920), whom he married in Jasper County, Missouri January 14, 1880. They had one daughter: Sarah Alice Jones, born 1896.

b. John Lewis Jones (1846-1929). John was born February 12, 1846 in Jackson Twp., Jasper, Missouri, and he died October 7, 1929 in Missoula, Montana. He married Henrietta Andrus (1846-1945) in 1874 in Washinton, Utah. They had a number of children: (a) Louis Henry Jones (1876-1880); (b) Lillie May Jones (1877-1900); (c) George Wilford Jones (1878-1955); (d) James Andrew Jones (1880-1909); (e) Emma Jones (1886-1900); (f) Anna “Annie” Rebecca Jones (1886-1965); (g) Myrtle Jones (1888-1900); (h) Nellie Irma “Oma” Jones (1889-1978); (i) Grover Cleveland Jones (1891-1963); (j) Randolph Jones (1892-1900); (k) Thomas Lewis Jones (1899-1908); (l) Irma Jones–no information.

c. George Washington Jones (1848-1887). George was born in Jasper County, Missouri in 1848, and he died after 1887 in Jasper County, Missouri. His wife was Armanda Elizabeth Murphy (1853-1935), whom he married March 20, 1887 in Carterville, Jasper, Missouri.

d. Daniel Greenbury Jones (1851-1924). Daniel was born August 17, 1851 in Jasper County, Missouri, and he died October 4, 1924 in Covina, Los Angeles County, California. His wife’s name appears on the records both as Mary Margaret Hicks (1856-1900) and as Martha M. Hicks. They were married March 27, 1873 in Jasper County, Missouri. There children were: (i) Arthur Alvin Jones (1874-1966); (ii) Oliver Wendell Jones (1875-1961); (iii) Elsie Pearl Jones (1877-1880); (iv) Newell Elton Jones (1879-1914); (v) Tillie Lois Jones (1880-1961); (vi) William Jack Jones (1885-1919); (vii) James W. Jones (b. 1888); (viii) Beulah Hester Jones (1893-2000); (ix) Olive Marie Jones (1896-1924).

Some people have suggested a Lorella Jones as a member of this family. She appears to have been born in Illinois, so she would not have been a member of this family. Her date of birth was 1851, so she would have been a twin of Daniel Greenbury Jones. He was born in Jasper County, Missouri.

***

2. Sarah Zane Jones (1823-1862). Sarah was born in Davidson County, Tennessee in 1823, and she died April 5, 1862 in Jasper County, Missouri. She married William Newton Warren (1820-1883) at Jones Creek, Jasper County, Missouri. He would become Captain William Newton Warren, C.S.A. during the Civil War. Their children were:

a. Lewis E. Warren (1842-1902). Lewis was born December 2, 1842 in Jasper County, Missouri, and he died February 28, 1902 in Texas. He is buried with family members in the Prairie Springs Cemetery, Cross Timber, Johnson County, Texas. He appears to have never married.

b. Daniel Columbus Warren (1844-1926). Daniel was born March 28, 1844 in Sarcoxie, Jasper County, Missouri, and he died June 22, 1926 in Joshua, Johnson County, Texas. In Summer 1862, Daniel enlisted in the Missouri Troop Infantry, Company A, 11th Regiment, Parson’s Brigade, Confederate Army in Neosho, Newton County, Missouri, and he served until the end of the war(6). He married Mary Etter (b. 1857) in Johnson County, Texas on July 3, 1876. She had a son named Neil, and it appears that Daniel adopted him.

c. Thomas Benton Warren (1846-1922). (Thomas Benton Warren has been confused with a John Thomas Warren (1844-1922) with the Benton name inserted. This is the correct Thomas!) Thomas was born February 25, 1846 in Sarcoxie, Jasper County, Missouri, and he died December 25, 1922 in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. He did not fight in the Civil War. His wife was Rosanna Catherine Josephine Gant (1855-1911), whom he married in 1873, probably in Texas. Their children were: (i) James Edward Warren (1875-1956); (ii) Ninetta Warren (b. 1877); (iii) Pettie Warren (b. 1878); (iv) William Newton Warren (1880-1962); (v) Perna/Capurnia Z. Warren (1883-1961); (vi) Bessie Warren (b. 1885); (vii) Millie Olya Warren (1888-1975).

d. Elizabeth J. Warren (1848-1913). Elizabeth was born August 12, 1848 in Sarcoxie, Jasper County, Missouri, and she died August 24, 1913 in Johnson County, Texas. She married George Washington Bransom in 1870 in Missouri City, Fort Bend, Texas. Their children were: (i) Benjamin W. Bransom (1871-1894); (ii) Mary T. Bransom (1873-1892); (iii) James Allen Bransom (1876-1963); (iv) Samuel H. Bransom (1878-1891); (v) Mittie M. Bransom (1879-1912); (vi) Ida Daisy Bransom (1879-1964); (vii) Charles Otis Bransom (1882-1883); (viii) Effie I. Bransom (b. 1884); (ix) Robert Gus Bransom (1886-1976); (x) George Edward Bransom (1886-1976); (xi) WK Bransom–no information.

e. Melinda Ann “Millie” Warren (1850-1938). Millie was born October 23, 1850 in Jasper County, Missouri, and she died February 14, 1938 in Joshua, Johnson County, Texas. On September 10, 1868, she married Asbury Franklin Eddleman (1843-1932) in Johnson County, Texas. He was a private Company C, 10th Texas Regiment, C.S.A.(7). Their children were: (i) William D. Eddleman (1869-1869); (ii) James Franklin Eddleman (1871-1957); (iii) Thomas Wesley Eddleman (1872-1947); (iv) Columbus Edward Eddleman (1875-1963); (v) Grace Edith Eddleman (1878-1921); (vi) Ettie Zane Eddleman (1883-1966); (vii) Reginald Newton Eddleman (1885-1980); (viii) Earl Homer Eddleman (1891-1974).

f. Ketirah or Keturah Warren (b. 1853, Jasper County, Missouri.) Nothing else is known.

g. Robert Newton Warren (1855-1929). Robert was born March 15, 1855 in Jasper County, Missouri, and he died January 29, 1929 in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. His wife was Adelia Pearce (1873-1964), whom he married June 29, 1898. They had one daughter: Mable Warren (1899-1989).

h. Mary Ann Warren (1857-1938). Mary Ann was born January 24, 1857 in Jasper County, Missouri, and she died September 30, 1938 in Mineral Well, Palo Pinto, Texas. She married Matthew Russell Birdwell (1854-1932) in 1875 or early 1876. They had two children: (i) John William Birdwell (1876-1953); and Bessie Ethel Birdwell (1877-1953).

i. Henry C. Warren (b. 1859, Jasper County, Missouri). He may have died young. I could find nothing more.

j. Sarah L. Warren. I have no more information other than her name(8).

Sarah Zane Jones Warren died in Jasper County, Missouri in 1862 and was probably buried in the Moss Springs Cemetery. Shortly after her death, her husband married Nancy Tennessee Jones (1828-1890) in Jasper County, Missouri. Nancy’s brother was Daniel Jackson Jones (1818-1859), the husband of Sarah Jane’s older sister, Rebecca. The third Jones family will be discussed in the next article.

Some people place a Lewis M. Warren (1841-1875) in this family as the oldest son. He was born in 1841 in Missouri, and he died in 1875 in Christian County, Missouri. If this were true, the Warrens would have had two sons named Lewis in the first and second position. After researching the matter, I believe I have discovered the identity of Lewis M. Warren. His surname was originally Park. His widowed mother, Nancy Warren, appears on the 1850 Census for Franklin County, Missouri with the following children: Robert Warren (b. 1835); Jane Warren (b. 1837); Ephraim Warren (b. 1839); Lewis Warren (1842-1875); Martha Warren (b. 1846)(9). Further inspection of the records shows that on September 16, 1847, Nelson Warren married Mrs. Nancy Park in Franklin County, Missouri(10). Nelson Warren may have died before the 1850 Census. I don’t know what happened to Nancy Park Warren. She may have remarried, or she may have died after the 1850 Census. Lewis M. Warren served in the Union Army for three years during the Civil War–another factor disconnecting him from the William Newton Warren family(11),(12). The William Newton Warren family–solidly Confederate–relocated to Texas in 1865 after the Union Army entered Missouri. This story is found in Mary Ann Warren’s Obituary:

Mrs. Mary Birdwell, 81, who as a child fled with her mother to Texas on an ox-drawn wagon when invading Yankee troops drove families of Confederate soldiers out of her native Missouri in 1865, died here early early Friday night, following an extended illness.

The wife of the late Matthew R. Birdwell, former cattleman who halped drive marauding Indians from this section, Mrs. Birdwell lived here more than fifty years.

She was the daughter of the late William N. Warren, a former State Representative in Missouri, who served in the Confederate Army as a Captain. Twenty-seven wagons crowded with wives and children of Confederate soldiers, were in the train in which she rode to Texas. Her family stopped in Grayson County, where they remained until the war ended and Captain Warren could join them and in the spring of 1866 they moved to Johnson County where her father settled on a tract of land near Burleson…(13).

Lewis M. Warren did not go to Texas. On February 13, 1866, he married Sarah Jane Adams (1836-1916) in Lincoln County, Kentucky(14). By 1870, he and his family settled in Clay, Greene County, Missouri(15). Lewis died in Christian County, Missouri May 4, 1875(16). His children were: James Charles Warren (1866-1943); Rebecca Frances Warren (1869-1951); Sarah Jane “Sadie” Warren (1871-1957); Mary “Mollie” Warren (1873-1944); Lewis Thomas Warren (1876-1951). He was not a child of William Newton Warren and Sarah Zane Jones.

William Newton Warren and Tennessee Jones had the following children:

a. Amelia Warren, who was born about 1863 in Jasper County, Missouri. Nothing else is known.
b. Gustavos Ericson Warren (1866-1947). Gustavos was born April 13, 1866 in Johnson County, Texas, and he died July 21, 1947 in Sinton, San Patricio, Texas. His wife was Dove Maltsberger (1874-1957), whom he married in Texas in 1899. Their children were: (i) Margaret Warren, born 1902; (ii) Gus E. Warren, Born 1903; (iii) Eric Warren, born 1904; and (iv) George William Warren (1905-1997).
c. Effie Warren (1868-1936). Effie was born October 25, 1868 in Burleson, Johnson County, Texas, and she died June 8, 1936 in Abernethy, Hale County, Texas. Her husband was Richard Marion Hardesty (1870-1944), whom she married in 1894 in Texas. Their children were: (i) Aubrey Newton Hardesty (1896-1968); (ii) Thomas Edwin Hardesty (b. 1897); (iii) Anna May Hardesty (1899-1971); (iv) James Marion Hardesty (b. 1901); (v) Wesley Warren Hardesty (1905-1982); (vi) Rudd E. Hardesty (1907-1975).

John David Jones (1827-1870)--Moss Springs Cemetery, Jasper County, Missouri

John David Jones (1827-1870)–Moss Springs Cemetery, Jasper County, Missouri

3. John David Jones (1827-1870). John David Jones was born in Tennessee in 1827, and he died September 28, 1870 in Jasper County, Missouri. He will reappear in later a later article concerning the murder of John Bass Jones (1838-1867). John Bass Jones was a brother of Daniel Jackson Jones (1818-1859) and Nancy Tennessee Jones (1828-1890)–the third Jones family. John David Jones’ wife was Elizabeth Foster (1840-1902). She will also reappear in the John Bass Jones murder article. John David Jones and Elizabeth Foster were married December 20, 1860 in Jasper County, Missouri. Their children were:

a. Thomas Allen Jones (1861-1942). Thomas was born in Jasper County, Missouri in 1861, and he died October 12, 1942 in Southwest City, McDonald County, Missouri. He married Mary Sabrit Thornhill (1874-1944) in Benton County, Arkansas. Their children were: (i) Oliga Jones, born 1891; (ii) Victor H. Jones, born 1897); (iii) Clarence Lloyd Jones, born 1906; (iv) Lucy Helen Jones (1910-1972); (v) Daisy Belle Jones (born 1912).

b. Hettie D. Jones, born in Jasper County, Missouri in 1864. She disappears after the 1880 Census, where she appears in her mother’s household(17). I have no additional information.

c. William H. Jones (1866-1939). William was born in Jasper County, Missouri in July 1866, and he died in 1939 in Jackson Twp., Jasper County, Missouri. He married Alberta V. (Birdie) Kessler (1868-1961) in 1889. She was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin Kessler (1832-1919) and Amanda Grace Wing (1844-1915)–my second great grandparents–and a sister of Josephine Virginia Kessler (1865-1925), wife of Salathiel Monroe Spence (1854-1921)–my great grandparents. Alberta was my second great aunt. According to the Ancestry calculator, William H. Jones is my second cousin three times removed. Their children were (i) W. Glenn Jones, born March 1890 in Arkansas; (ii) Neal C. Jones, who was born September 1898 in Missouri; and (iii) Walter Leroy Jones (1906-1964).

d. John D. (Charles) Jones (1871-1924). John was born after his father’s death on January 2, 1871 in Fidelity, Jasper, Missouri, and he died June 27, 1924 in Pineville, McDonald County, Missouri. On March 23, 1893, he married Hattie Rebinah Crocker (1873-1957) in Neosho, Newton, Missouri. They had a son: Raymond Gerald Jones (1895-1967).

***

4. Luvina McClellan Jones (1830-1878) Luvina was born March 28, 1830 in Franklin, Williamson, Tennessee, and she died February 9, 1878 in Moscow, Nez Perce, Idaho. On March 17, 1850, she married Amos Buchanan (1826-1907) in Jasper County, Missouri. He was a farmer and a minister or an evangelist. The family traveled frequently. By 1859, the Buchanans relocated to Missouri City, Texas. They were in Drakesville, Iowa in 1863. They returned to Missouri for a while and then relocated to Idaho. Their children follow:

a. Rebecca Jane Buchanan (1851-1932). Rebecca was born March 23, 1851 in Neosho, Newton, Missouri, and she died January 1932 in Glendale, Douglas, Oregon.

d. Levi Perry Buchanan (1856-1857). Levi was born August 23, 1956 in Jasper County, Missouri, and he died the following year on September 25, 1857 in Jasper County, Missouri.

e. Mark Lemuel Buchanan (1858-1932). Mark was born March 12, 1858 in Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri, and he died July 13, 1932 in Sedro-Woolley, Skagkit, Washington.

Amos and his wife appear in her mother’s household on the 1920 Census for Julia Mariah Bottom Cloyd(18). A Dale Miller, born about 1914, lives with them. He is listed as Julia’s grandson. I believe he may have been the son of one of Lilly’s sisters–but I haven’t found a Miller married to any of them as yet. He could have been Lilly’s son by a previous marriage, but I haven’t found evidence of that either. He may be the Dale Miller, born about 1914, who died in Los Angelis California June 24, 1921(19). Dale Miller does not appear on subsequent census records for Amos and Lilly Buchanan.

j. Luvina Buchanan (1866-1866). Luvina was born February 13, 1866, and she died November 10, 1866.

Jones (b. 1903); Miriam Livina Jones (1905-1998); (iv) Clay Buchanan Jones (1909-1993).

m. Margaret “Maggie” May Buchanan (1874-1890). Maggie was born August 17, 1874 in Missouri and she died at the age of sixteen on October 7, 1890 in Yanhill, Oregon.

Luvina McClellan Jones died February 9, 1878 in Moscow, Nez Perz, Idaho. Amos Buchanan married Chlore Isabelle Cole (1853-1933) on June 30, 1878 in Nez Perce, Idaho. They had three children.

a. Pearlie Minerva Buchanan (1880-1963). Pearlie was born October 13, 1880 Near Moscow, Latah, Idaho, and she died July 10, 1963 in Independence, Jackson, Missouri. She married Henry Austin Moriarity (1875-1942). Their children were: Lete B. Moriarity (b. 1905) and Henry Austin Moriarity, Jr. (b. 1908).

b. Fredrick Garfield Buchanan (1882-1953). Fredrick was born March 30, 1882 in Moscow, Nez Perce, Idaho, and he died August 18, 1953 in Columbus, Cherokee, Kansas. His wife was Mary Elsie Nichols (1887-1971). Their children were: (i) Gladys Irene Buchanan (1908-1971); (ii) Della May Buchanan (1909-1971); (iii) Rosa Unis Buchanan (1910-1912); (iv) Julia Onis Buchanan (1912-1975); (v) Ruby Inez Buchanan (1914-1965); (vi) Leonard (Onis) Green Buchanan (1915-1915); (vii) Juanita Louise Buchanan (1916-1971); (viii) Lewis Edward Buchanan (1918-1918); (ix) Cora Alberta Buchanan (1920-1971); (x) Twyla Marie Buchanan (1923-2001); (xi) Cleta Jane Buchanan (1925-1971).

c. Martha Fairchild Buchanan (1887-1932). Martha was born February 2, 1887 in Idaho, and she died June 17, 1932. She appears to have never married. I have no additional information about her.

Amos Buchanan and his wife Chloe Isabelle Cole divorced about 1889. He left for Oregon shortly after the divorce, which was probably the reason for the discord. He wanted to go to Oregon and Chloe didn’t! The children of his first marriage went to Oregon with him, and Chloe’s children remained with her. She relocated to Crestline, Cherokee, Kansas, where she married Henry Wiggins (1841-1910) on November 15, 1892. Their children follow: (i) Ledori Tecoma Wiggins (1892-1895); (ii) Loretti Seattle Wiggins (1893-1981); (iii) Columbia Cole Wiggins (1894-1929); (iv) Unknown Child Wiggins (1888-1889).

Amos Buchanan also remarried in 1889. His third wife was Amanda Frazier (1853-1904). Amanda was born in Missouri, and she died in Oregon. Amanda died in 1904; Amos died May 2, 1907. They are buried together in Roseburg Memorial Gardens, Roseburg, Douglas, Oregon.

5. Nancy Jane Jones (1832-1929) Nancy Jane Jones’ records have been confused with Nancy Tennessee Jones (1828-1890). When I first started working on the Jones line, I thought they were one and the same. That isn’t the case. Nancy Tennessee Jones (1818-1890) (already discussed earlier in this article) was a sister of Daniel Jackson Jones and of John Bass Jones (the third Jones line). Nancy Jane Jones was a daughter of Lewis Jones and Milly Catherine Spence, and she is under discussion here. She was born February 19, 1832 in Davidson County, Tennessee, and she died March 19, 1929 in Claude, Armstrong, Texas. Her nickname was “Maxie”, so she appears on some records as Nancy Jane “Maxie” Jones/Hood.

Nancy had two husbands. They were brothers and sons of Joel Owensby Hood (1803-1891) and Nancy Haskins (1807-1876)–my third great grandparents. Their daughter and sister of the two brothers–Manerva Caroline Hood (1824-1901)–my second great grandmother–married my second great grandfather–William David Spence (1827-1907. William David was the second oldest son of Samuel Perry Spence (1800-1859)> and Elizabeth Inman (1808-1872). (This whole thing keeps traveling around in a circle!).

On November 20, 1853, Nancy Jane Jones married Norris Franklin Hood (1832-1863) in Jasper County, Missouri. Their children follows:

a. Laura “Laurie” Elmira Hood (1854-1927). Laurie was born October 25, 1854 in Jasper County, Missouri, and she died September 8, 1927 in Lockney, Floyd County, Texas. She married Thomas Jefferson Thornton (1847-1929) on January 14, 1874 in Johnson County, Texas. Their children were: (i) William Newton Thornton (1874-1971); (ii) Exander Dudley Thornton (1876-1961); (iii) Walter Thornton (1878-1884); (iv) Charles Fredrick Thornton (1880-1956); (v) Margaret “Maggie” May Thornton (1882-1966); (vi) Minnie Gertrude Thornton (1884-1962); (vii) Lida M. Thornton (b. 1886); (viii) Edwin W. Thornton (1888-1971); (ix) James Claude Thornton (1890-1958); (x) Burton Norris “Pete” Thornton (1894-1970); (xi) Bertie Jane Thornton (1894-1989).

b. Alice Almina Hood (1856-1932). Alice was born August 26, 1856 in Jasper County, Missouri, and she died April 1, 1932 in Alamogordo, Otero, New Mexico. On April 24, 1881, she married Joseph Lucas Hudman (1853-1909) in Palo Pinto County, Texas. Their children were: (i) Bessie Lee Hudman (1883-1955); (ii) Willie Norris Hudman (1884-1919); (iii) Donnie Nora Hudman (1885-1980); (iv) Etta Cordelia Hudman (1888-1891); (v) Charles T. Hudman (1889-1947); (vi) Maud V. Hudman (1891-1958); (vii) Olen Warren Hudman (1898-1918); (viii) Glenn Fields Hudman (1898-1966).

c. Charles A. “Charlie” Hood (1859-1861). Charles was born in 1859 in Jasper County, Missouri, and he died in 1861 in Jasper County, Missouri.

d. Eva Lourella Hood (1861-1944). Eva was born January 1, 1861 in Jasper County, Missouri, and she died October 8, 1944 in Vernon, Texas. In August 1881, she married Richard Berry Richardson (1857-1937) in Palo Pinto County, Texas. Their children were: (i) Neppie Mae Richardson (1882-1918); (ii) Maude E. Richardson (1884-1974); (iii) Essie Ollie Richardson (1886-1888); (iv) Willie Glenn Richardson (1888-1963); (v) Richard Norris Richardson (1894-1960); (vi) Nancy J. Richardson (b. 1897); (vii) Eva Louise Richardson (1910-1990).

e. Norris F. “Bud” Hood (1863-1930). Bud Hood was born in Jasper County, Missouri on April 16, 1863, and he died October 24, 1930 in Claude, Armstrong, Texas. According to his death certificate, he was hit by a freight train. There is a question as to whether he ever married. The consensus is that he did not. However, a 1910 Census record for a Norris Hood suggests the following:


Name:
Norris Hood
Age in 1910:
49
Birth Year:
abt 1861
Birthplace:
Missouri
Home in 1910:
Sarcoxie, Jasper, Missouri
Race:
White
Gender:
Male
Relation to Head of House:

Marital Status:

Spouse’s Name:

Father’s Birthplace:

Mother’s Birthplace:

Household Members:
Norris Hood 49
Maud Hood 37
Roy Hood 21
Charley Hood 19
Harrie Hood 17
Rubie Hood 16
John Hood 14
Maggie Hood 12
Mary Hood 6
(20)

Norris Hood–1910 Jasper County–is not Bud Hood. Both of Bud’s parents were born in Tennessee, and 1910 Norris’s mother’s birthplaceis identified as Illinois. I have an idea that Norris Hood (1910 Census) is probably a member of the David K. Hood family, who remained in Jasper County. Will save that for a later article. Additionally, Bud Hood was born in Jasper County, Missouri April 16, 1863. Norris Hood of the 1910 entry was born in Jasper County, Missouri in August 1860.

When the Civil War intensified, Norris Franklin Hood, Sr. signed up to fight. He joined the Confederate 11th Missouri Infantry 11th Regiment, Missouri Infantry Company A. Some people think this was a Union regiment. According to his military papers, the Missouri 11th was Confederate(21). The Joel Owensby Hood branch of the Hood family retained southern sympathies and left Jasper County, Missouri. After leaving Missouri, they did not return–especially after John Bass Jones’ murder!

Norris died February 17, 1863 in Little Rock, Pulaski County, Arkansas. I don’t know whether he was killed in a skirmish or whether he died of an illness. Three years later, Nancy Jane married William Washington Hood (1837-1902), a brother of Norris. They remained in Jasper County, Missouri, and left after the John Bass Jones murder. They were in Arkansas and McDonald County, Missouri for a while, and then moved on to Texas, settling first in Johnson County and next in Palo Pinto. They returned to Benton County, Arkansas by 1900, where William Hood died November 20, 1902. Nancy Jane returned to Texas, and she died in Claude, Armstrong, Texas on March 15, 1929. The children of Nancy Jane Jones and William Washington Hood follow:

a. Joel Augustus “Gus” Hood (1868-1953). Joel Augustus Hood was born in Arkansas December 2, 1868, and he died April 10, 1953 in Claude, Armstrong County, Texas. He is buried in the Claude Cemetery. His wife was Lurena Bell (1874-1943). Their children were: (i) Myrtle Lee Hood (1895-1982); (ii) Charles Franklin Hood (1898-1948); and (iii) Dessie B. Hood (1902-1994).

b. William Warren Hood (1869-1944). William Warren Hood was born November 1, 1869 in McDonald County, Missouri, and he died May 26, 1944 in Claude, Armstrong County, Texas. His wife was Claudine Brunell Chauveneau (1880-1961). She was born in St. Etienne, France. Their children were: (i) Paul Hood (1899-1985); (ii) Mamie Hood (1900-1942); (iii) Ruth Hood (1901-1984); (iv) Francis “Fat” Hood (1903-1963); (v) Leona Rebecca Hood (1907-1992); (vi) Joe Hood (1912-1968).

c. Hugh Anderson Hood (1875-1930). Hugh Anderson Hood was born July 1, 1875 in Johnson County, Texas, and he died after 1930 possibly in Vernon, Willbarger, Texas. His wife was Anna Arabella Stafford, who was born in 1874. Their children were: (i) Hugh Franklin “Frank” Hood (1897-1961); (ii) Irene Hood, born 1899; (iii) Ethel Hood, born 1902; (iv) Jack Hood (1911-1991; (v) Edith Hood (1913-1914)

d. Finis Abel “Coon” Hood (1878-1938). Finis Abel Hood was born February 8, 1878 in Palo Pinto, Texas, and he died October 2, 1938 in Armstrong County, Texas. His wife was Jesse Mason, born 1882. Their children were: (i) Lonnie Hood, born 1902; (ii) Willie Hood, born 1904; (iii) Robert Hood, born 1908; (iv) Edwin Hood (b. 1912); (v) Owen Hood (b. 1915); Floy Hood (b. 1919.

7. James Riley Jones (1835-1868). James Riley Jones was born about 1835 in Davidson County, Tennessee, and he died before November 21, 1868 in Jasper County, Missouri. He appears on the 1850 and 1860 Census records for Jasper County, Missouri.

A Mystery: Mary Jane Jones (1832-1910)

I found Mary Jane Jones (1832-1910) listed as a child of Lewis Jones and Milly Catherine Spence on a number of Ancestry trees. To date, I do not know whether she should be listed with them. Her parents are identified on her death certificate as L and Unknown Jones(22). She was born October 11, 1832 in Greenville, Green County, Tennessee, which is in the southeastern part of the state. To my knowledge, Lewis Spence and Milly Catherine Jones never lived in Greenville. So I am inclined to believe that she was not one of their children. She married Jotham Franklin Weston (1827-1865) in Greenville. The family relocated to Sullivan County, Missouri, where they appear to have had no connection with the Jasper County people. A summary of her Find-a-Grave Memorial follows:

Birth: Oct. 11, 1832
