Notes for Ebenezer Vincent Jones
His name is given by another source as Vincent “Vinson” Jones.360 According to this source, Vincent died in 1857 in Placerville, CA and is buried in the IOOF Cemetery. She states that it took six months to get to California and after Vincent died, son Freeman went back to Indiana.

According to a long-time Jones researcher, Ron Jones of Long Beach, California, the story of Vincent Jones travelling to California is incorrect. The following came from Ron:403

I found this in my notes last night. It is an original note typed by Rachel Jones Carrol. She is descended through the P.L. Louis line I believe and is no longer living. She did live in northern Louisiana and was an elderly family researcher who did her genealogy from the library and a few personal mails. She was in contact with Jesse Mattes Jones:

She writes, " REGARDING VINCENT JONES - CORRECTION" (I believe she is one of the primary disseminators of the Vincent Jones, son of Ebenezer going to California - Ron)

"The legend regarding Vincent (Vinson) Jones and his son Freeman Jones, (The father of William Lewis Jones) going to the California gold fields in a covered wagon and that there was a choLera epidemic when they arrived there and that Vincent died of it and is buried there is absolutely untrue.

Vincent Jones was in the 1850 Daviess Co., IN census. But he moved his family to Utah after that and he died there in 1857.

There was a Vincent Jones, the son of a William Simpson Jones who went to California and died there. He was from Knox Co. IN which is next to Daviess Co.

This Vincent Jones was probably connected in some way to our Jones line.

More about the Joneses

Vincent Jones married Elizabeth Burgart in Daviess Co., IN in 1824.

Freeman Jones married first, Ann Hulen in 1851. She died in 1853 (no children). He married 2nd. Ann's cousin, Eunice Hulen was born in Daviess Co. about 1841.

Freeman was in the 1860 census of Daviess Co. (Steele Township).

In 1864 William Lewis Jones was born. Freeman left IN after William Lewis was born and before 1870 as he was no longer in the census that year.

The next account I have of him was in Washington Co., Arkansas (probably in the Cane Hill district) where their son, Floyd Clarkston, was born.

Later Freeman moved to Pineville, McDonald County, Mo. He died there 18_8. Eunice went back to Cane Hill, Ark. And lived with her son. She died there in 1906"
