      On 19 September 1850, Nathan (48, farmer) and Sarah (44) Jones lived in Washington Twp. (Putnam) IN, with their children Mary Ann (24), Margaret E. (22), Matilda A. (21), Abraham L.

Also in the household: John Brothers (22, laborer, born NC, illiterate). All in the household (all those over age 20 anyway) were listed as illiterate. Nathan owned $1000 in real estate. Margaret E., Matilda A., Abraham L., Virginia A., and William T. were attending school.

      On 12 Jan 1860, Abraham L. (28, farmer) and Martha E. (24) Jones lived in St. John Twp. (Harrison) IA with their children Mary E. (4), Sarah A. (2), and William R. (8/12). Abraham owned $2000 in real estate and had a personal estate worth $500.

      BIRTH: Recorded in Family Bible in possession of Eunice Johnson, Neligh, NE

      MARRAIGE: Recorded in Family Bible in possession of Eunice Johnson, Neligh, NE. Also recorded in Pottawattamie County, Iowa, Marriages (Book 1, Page 96, 1848-1856)

      DEATH: Abraham Leander Jones died, at the age of 37, from complications resulting from a broken leg. A limb had fallen on his leg as he was attempting to chop down a tree. In order to "set" the leg, chloroform was used as an anesthetic. When Abraham didn't respond as quickly as the doctor felt he should have following surgery, an attempt was made to revive him with mercury. Whether it was the chloroform, the mercury, or a combination of the two, Abraham did not survive. He left his widow with seven young children to raise--and one on the way; Jane Amanda was born eight months later.
