I am trying to learn who the parents of my most distant known Jones ancestor might have been. His name (as shown on his tombstone) is Green Jones (1829-1904). Census data indicates that he was born in Virginia, but moved to Hawkins County Tennessee (probably between 1850 and 1860). There may have been a stop in Kentucky between Virginia and Hawkins County. He was listed as a brick mason in the 1870 census and as a plasterer in the 1860 census. He married Mary Jane Shanks (1834-1912) about 1861, apparently in Hawkins County. They had a number of children, including my great-grandfather, Chris Jones.
