I am trying to learn who the ancestors of my great-great grandfather Green Jones, of Hawkins County, Tennessee, might have been. Green, according to census data was born in Virginia in 1829 and died in Hawkins County, Tennessee, in 1904. He is buried in the Shanks Cemetery off Sandy Valley Road north of Rogersville, Tennessee. He married Mary Jane Shanks about 1861 and they had a number of children, including my great-grandfather Chris Jones. Green Jones was listed as a brick mason in the 1870 census. He had been listed as a plasterer in the 1860 census, the first census to list him as a Hawkins County resident.
