  • Notes 
    • From findagrave.com:

      Birth: 1793
      Death: Dec. 29, 1881
      Monongalia County
      West Virginia, USA

      He was born to a McMillen or McMullen family but then adopted by a Jones family whose wife's name had been Martha Patterson before she married Jones. (Not to be confused with David's daughter Martha Jones who also married Patterson).

      In addition to the children whose graves are linked, below, the couple had a daughter, Barbara Jones Darrah (Mrs. Robert), reportedly buried in Lone Rock Cemetery in MO. But one report says that is in Harrison County MO while findagrave only reports one cemetery of that name, but in Dallas County MO. Darrah was a common name in Monongalia County WV.

      Some cemetery transcriptions say or imply that his wife Phoebe is buried with him here. Their son John H. and John's wife Alvira and two of John and Alvira's children are buried a few paces across this cemetery from this spot.

      Was in 1850 census 37th District, Monongalia, WV, p. 345-B.

      David Jones was in Iowa during 1880 census, which implies he may have died there, the body returning to Monongalia, WV for burial.
    • Y-DNA done and completed on 9/2/2016 on a male descended from David Jones in the line:

      David-David Worley-David Meade-Phillip Hobart-Charles Henry

      Y-DNA indicates that David Jones was a child of the Eneas McMullen family. Unfortunately, there is nothing there to indicate his exact father so research continues in that direction.
    • 1850 US Federal Census, District 37, Monongolia, Virginia, lists his birthplace as Maryland.
