Notes for Keziah Busby
Keziah Jones was born on December 15th, 1812, according to bible records.

Keziah Jones married Martin Jones on December 10th, 1840, according to bible records.

She appears in the 1850 Shelby County, Alabama Census at the age of 34 with her father, mother and siblings. This Census notes that she was born in Tennessee.

She appears in the 1850 and 1860 Census records.

She passed away on August 14th of 1892, also per bible records.4697

03/19/2016 Update : Reverend Martin Erwin Brooks Jones' death certificate proves the first name of his mother as being Mary. However, I find that odd as Keziah already had a sister named Mary, so perhaps this was an error on the certificate.
Notes for Martin (Spouse 1)
Martin Jones was born on May 16th of 1816 to unknown parents in an as yet unknown location according to family bible records.

He married Keziah Busby on December 10th of 1840 and the couple had at least one son.

He passed away on January 7th of 1846 in Shelby County, Alabama, also per bible record.

It is my best guess that he is likely buried in Summer Hill Cemetery, along with his wife Keziah Busby Jones and Granddaughter, Mary K. Jones, but this is only speculation.

Rebecca Jones married John A. Busby and it is my suspicion that Martin and Rebecca were likely related in some way. Further research on these individuals could prove essential to discovering their parentage.4696

03/24/2016 Update : A descendant of this man is a 4th Cousin Match to a descendant of Nathan Olious Jones, a potential son of Asa Jones, with the Father of Nathan Olious Jones being the common ancestor.
