John 3:16




Jones




The most distant Jones ancestor I have been able to definitively identify is James A Jones
born 15 Apr 1923 in Greene County, Georgia. James spent his youth in Perry County,
Alabama, and was a veteran of the Mexican War, serving for a twelve-month period from
13 June 1846 to 27 May 1847 as a private in Captain William Coleman's 1st Alabama Volunteers.
He participated in two battles, the Battle of Monterey where he was wounded, and in the
Battle of Vera Cruz.

After his service, James returned to Perry County where he married Nancy Cawley* on
19 Dec 1847. Nancy was born 12 Nov 1826 in Edgefield, South Carolina. The couple had five
children, and between 1864 and 1866 moved their family to Sabine Parish, Louisiana. James received
a pension for his service in the Mexican War, beginning in Jan 1887 until his death on 2 Apr 1895.
A widow's pension was then granted for Nancy until her own death in 1899.

James and Nancy's second child and oldest son, Charles M Jones was born Dec 1852 in Perryville,
Perry county, Alabama. He married Evaline Pantallion on 20 Sep 1877 in Sabine Parish, Louisiana.
Born in Aug 1858 in Many, Sabine Parish, Louisiana, she was the daughter of Ovide Pantallion
and Statira Villars. She and Charles had seven children. Evaline passed away in 1928, Charles
in 1934, both in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, and both are buried in Middle Creek Cemetery.
