Almost There (Generation 38 - 45)

The diagram to the right continues my JONES family tree. Starting with Robert (J0-1) who marries Margaret Eyton of Rhuabon(J0-2), it continues another seven generations to Griffin Jones, Sr.(JV-162) of Caroline Co., VA. It is at generation 40, Richard ap John ap Robert (JQ-95) where our JONES surname begins. Richard (JQ-95) is found at Llanfair 1558. This is an area just below Ruthin. His son, Thomas Jones (JR-180) continues the JONES surname. It is Richard Jones (JS-165), the grandson of the first Richard Jones (JQ-95) that is forced to leave England 1648 when Charles I looses his head! Cadwallader Jones (JT-143) becomes the first to settle along the Rappahannock River in Virginia 1673 and leads to all kinds of trouble. [Much more to come about Cadwallader(JT-143)! John Jones (JU-145) and his son Griffin Jones, Sr.(JV-162) remain upon the lands that were to become Caroline Co., VA. We are almost to Kentucky, my homeland. We are almost there.
