On previous Saturdays, we have reported all of the known ancestor lineage surnames through the great-great grandparent surnames (see earlier Saturday Surname posts in the left column, scroll down - back into 2009) and we have started on the next batch.
Looking ahead, from the "round of thirty-two" (scroll down a bit...) - 3rd great-grandparents - We know and will have reported on 9 of the sixteen Male lines (four are from Denmark) we know and will be reporting on nine new female surname lines of the possible sixteen: VESTERSTROM, SPRANG, LORD, KIMMERLING, FIRESTONE, SCHWYHART, LEE, JONES, and KIRK.
Today, we will look briefly at JONES. It relates to WILLIAMS. WILLIAMS was my mother's paternal grandmother's surname. Nettie WILLIAM's father, Elias WILLIAMS, was born in either Gyffylliog, Denhigh, England or Ruthin, Wales (I do not have confirmation either way, yet) on 29 Jan 1838. The parents of Elias were William WILLIMS and Margart JONES. She is said to have been born in Ruthin, Wales. They had one daughter, of which I am aware, Mary A. WILLIAMS, b. Dec 1836, in Wales. She married a Richard H. JONES, and they had two children, each born in Minnesota.
Families are Forever! ;-)
