    Notes 
    • I was looking at the 1850 Federal Census Records for Washington Township, Putnam County, Indiana and I was checking out the family of Henley Mullinix, the first husband of Mary Jane Jones. I thought that he might have married a neighbor and I scrolled forward in the census record and found two Jones families. To me they looked like brothers. Nathan and Abagail Jones had a Mary Jane that was just the right age.

      I have attached the census record. I then searched on this family and came across the family records of alloch from Tucson, Arizona at ancestry.com. I will attempt to contact him but I have created him as a source and I have picked up his information. I will have to confirm this but it all ties in with what I have from other sources so far.

      Nathan was brought up in Kentucky as a farmer's son, moved to Indiana and bought a farm of 200 acres, one half improved and the remainder in heavy timber. There he built a house and made many valuable improvements. In 1856 he sold out and moved by emigrant wagon to Appanoose Co, this state, driving a herd of cattle and locating upon a tract of 340 acres of prairie and timber, which he subsequently divided up among his sons and son-in-law, keeping 120 acres for himself. He resided there 9 years, making improvements, and then sold out and in the fall of 1865 settled where he now resides, upon 150 acres of land. There the next autumn his wife died, leaving 7 children: W.L., who now resides in Harrison County; Mary Jane, who married Henley MULLENIX and is now deceased; David A. of Nebraska; parks who died in infancy; .G., the subject of this sketch; Cenif and Cerina (twins); Cenif is the wife of William WILLIAMS, Rockford Township, and Cerina of Newton MORELAND in the same township. L.G. JONES, the fifth child and youngest son in the above family was brought up to farm life.
