Information about my great-great grandmother Nola Callahan Jones of Giles County Tennessee

+2 votes
102 views
My great-great grandmother is Nola Callahan Jones, I know she married George Washington Jones in July of 1896. They had several children together before she passed. Per oral family history and a scant amount of evidence I have found (mainly a partial obit in old records) I believe she passed around 1906. This would have been shortly after her son James Washington Jones was born. There is an unmarked grave to the left of my GGF, who has his last wife to his right. I believe this may be her final resting place. I am at a loss for solid information as Family Search has yielded minimal results (only the kid's death certs as adults and a marriage record). Would anyone know of anywhere else I can look or have any information about her?

 

Regards,

 

Jennifer

Maybe you found this already - this looks like them in 1900:

"United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MS8V-ZZ3 : accessed 21 May 2018), George Jones Jr., Civil District 21, Giles, Tennessee, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 36, sheet 3B, family 64, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1972.); FHL microfilm 1,241,572.

It says she was born in Alabama about 1873.

Then, George, remarried, with family in the same District in 1910:

"United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MGFP-1LH : accessed 21 May 2018), George Jones, Civil District 21, Giles, Tennessee, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 37, sheet 6B, family 101, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1982), roll 1500; FHL microfilm 1,375,513.

Sometimes the local historical/genealogical societies have info not available online.  Good luck!

Thanks much. I will have to see if I can connect with the genealogical society. Hopefully they will have something I can't locate.
