Looking for birthplace and parents of Wynn Jones

+3 votes
I am looking for the birth place and parents of Wynn Jones. According to census records, he was born between 1795-1805 in Virginia. He was listed in the 1820 Federal census in Lee County, VA as a single 16-26 year old male. Wynn Jones emigrated to Indiana, where he married Margaret, surname unknown, on 25 May 1821 in Monroe County, IN. They moved to Morgan County, IN, then to Hendricks County, IN, where they lived until Wynn Jones died in 1875. He was listed as Wynn in the 1820 and 1830 censuses, Winn in 1840, William in 1850, Wym in 1860, and Wynn in his obituary. There is also a William Jones who may be somehow associated with 'my' Wynn Jones. This William Jones lived in the same township as Wynn Jones in the 1830, 1840, and 1850 Indiana Federal censuses. William Jones, of Morgan County, IN, married Eleanor "Nelly" Claypool of Hendricks County, IN on 12 Apr 1827.

Doug, was the family by chance Quaker? The migration route and dates are quite common in Quaker families so I wondered about that. Have you looked in Hinshaw to see if they are found in his Quaker record transcriptions?
Thank you for the suggestion! We don't have anything in our meager family history that mentions it, but I am going to follow up on it! Quaker migration patterns - how interesting!

The 1820 census, Lee,VA lists an Isaiah Jones age over 45 and then Larkin Jones age 16-25 and Wynn 16-25.  I would research isaiah jones as Father.
