John Jones (JU-145)

Identifying the children of Cadwallader Jones (JT-143) has always been a serious, serious, "brick wall" for the many genealogist who have tried to climb this family tree.  Early, folks believed that he had no children.  Then a daughter was discovered in records dating from early Kentucky.   Several genealogist felt that the records which record a son of Cadwallader Jones (JT-143) was really a "step-son" and not really a Y-chromosome son.  There is even a court document which list a "Cadwallader, Jr.", but no one seems to have researched this case.   After many, many, years of tree climbing, there are at least four biological children of Cadwallader Jones (JT-143)!  My line come through John Jones (JU-145).

As you might expect, being the 145th Jones investigated for this generation, it was a great relief to clear all the leaves and branches.  Much more will be given regarding this generation!
