Okay, Looking at the Jones Family...   William John Murphy & Maude May Jones.  ((Murphy-4190 & Jones-19423)) 4 Generations above me.

 

Several members of this family left the Union-Wayne County, Indiana area in the 1840s for the area of Cloverdale, Putnam County, Indiana and adjoining Owen County, Indiana.

Still researching if you have any info to help, please comment.  I have hit a road block at Jesse & Sarah (young) Jones.

John & Maude adopted Harold Jones son of Alva Aleck Jones (Maude's Brother) & Bessie Zerilda Lopossa Gross.  There are rumors that they raised Bill Cassel (a child of Bertha), but I have found no info to support that, I am thinking bill, Could be short for William.  Bertha did have a son John William Cassel. Still confirming info on the Bill thing, so far nothing. The family has a way of using the middle names,  instead of first names.
Alva Aleck Jones

      Birth 15 Sep 1880 in Putnam county IN
      Death 13 Sep 1935 in Owen Co, Indiana

Age at death: 54  Harold was around the age of 16 when he died.

Bessie Zerilda Lopossa Gross
      Birth 3 march 1891
      Death 31 January 1921

Age at death: 29  Harold was around the age of 3 when she died.

All his sibling would of been adults when their father died.

I assume that due to the year of his mothers death & the fact that he is in the next census,

Harold went into the Murphy's care after 31 January 1921, around the age of 3 years old.

They raised him as their own.  Siblings of Harold: Henry Jones, Mary Jones, Mortisha Jones.

Jesse was found in the 1850 census of Abington township of Wayne County, Indiana. He owned $800 worth of land. Neither he or Sarah could read or write. He was next found farming in Cloverdale township of Putnam County, Indiana in 1860-1870. He owned $2,600 worth of land there in June 1870. On November 28, 1870 Jesse purchased 133 acres in Jackson (now Jennings) township of Owen County. He owed back taxes on 21 acres of that land in 1873.
Jesse Jones died between 1873 and 1880, when Sarah is found in the 1880 Owen County, Indiana census listed as a widow. She lived in Jennings township. It is likely that the family moved to Owen County in the 1870's.
