Cheryl this is my "theory".  I have reasonably sized DNA matches to the Rolls family - see my Gedcom kit WB9774032.  I believe that the match is to Robert Jones  above.  He was the son of my great grandfather William Jones - who died 1864,   after June 1864,  in Ireland., rescuing horses from a flood (!) and great grandmother Mary Persse, no birth date but definite date of death June 18, 1864 in Dublin, North Shore Ireland,  in childbirth.  Robert had 2 brothers.  John,  who family story says,  was sent to Canada, Robert was was sent to  family in Victoria Australia  and Samuel (my grandfather).  Samuel  was born June 18, 1864 and on the death of William Jones he was brought to NSW Australia by a grandparent and maiden aunt.   Mary Persse, the mother of Robert John and Samuel,  died in childbirth and though there are records of a Mary Jones dying in 1864, no recon that pins her down to our family.  There are records of a William Jones dying in 1864 in Ireland but nothing to pin him down to our family.  I have been searching for years and haven't been able to find definitive records.   Until, with the advent of AncestryDNA I've been able to locate the link to Robert Jones in the Rolls family tree's  and the Hay family tree.  I wish you a big break through Cheryl.  Email me if you do have a break through,  Let me know if you want to see my tree on Ancestry.   Best wishes, Cherie Kravec nee Jones.  email me on cherie.kravec@mac.com
