Joseph Wheeler Jones (JAB-1)

"Jay" by his sisters..."Wheeler" by his wife...and "Pap paw" by me he was called.  Born July 5, 1898 in Clark Co., KY, he lived his life in and around Winchester.   Gertrude Patterson Monroe "Mam maw" was born the same 1904 and died March 17, 1989.  I often heard her friends call her "Gertie".

 Here they stand holding my father in their arms.  Many of my summers were spent in their home on Jackson street.  Say hello to the origins of my family stories.   [See my family stories at my blog]  They both still reside in my memories.
