  • Notes 
    • granddad

      John (Jack) A. Jones was the second husband of Martha A. Taylor Dickson. After the death of John H. Dickson, Martha remarried. The family story is that Jack Jones never allowed discussion of the first husband, the father of Martha's children. As such, they never got along with him and left home early.

      According to the marriage records of Crawford Co, AR, a Jack Jones,age 21, married Caroline Baker, age 20, on 24 Apr 1878. This could have been the first marriage of this Jack Jones, but I think not. the ages do not correspond very well at all to those reported in the census. They would work, however, with the age of Zena Jones, the daughter of Jack Jones. Perhaps the ages on the marriage license are in error.

      A second marriage record is found in Crawford Co. on 11 Jan 1890 for John A. Jones and Mrs. Sue Dickson. This appears to be the record for his marriage to the widow of John H. Dickson. However the name is in error. A notation in the margin of the record says that this record was mailed to Jack Jones in Rudy, Crawford Co., AR on 5 Sep 1896. The Jones family definitely lived in the small town of Rudy. Married granddad's grandmother after grandfather died. Never allowed discussion of first husband.
