Larry Jones is a member of the Appalachia Project (South Central Appalachia Team).
Larry Jones has Appalachian roots.

Being retired, I spend way too much time in this effort to connect everyone. It's terrible but I do enjoy it so. I am dedicated to being as accurate as possible and will search for hours to find sources that support the facts I include in profiles. I like adding every member of any given family that I can.

I admit I don't know it all -- but I try to learn new stuff continually.

DNA Connections

Larry, welcome to the Appalachia Project - South Central Appalachia Team!

When you have the chance, please add your South Central Appalachia interests next to your name on our South Central Team page. While you’re there, you can read what others are working on and get to know us a little bit. Then join us on the Discord channel – we are a friendly bunch!

Also, please review our Reliable (and Unreliable) Sources for the Appalachia Project to help with sourcing our Profiles as you add or come across them. WikiTree requires valid sources on all Profiles and our Project has certain requirements for sources. Check the Appalachia Stickers Page for tips on adding stickers to profiles. In fact, you can add a team sticker to your own page!

I am always available for any questions or help. Thanks for joining the team.

Hi Larry, there is a large number of cemetery categories you recently created that are not connected to the category structure, that is, they have no parent categories. See this report,

The categories need a Cemetery Category Info Box, to add the required content, including parent categories. See this help page,

Thanks for your help, regards, Margaret, Categorization Project volunteer.

Thanks for the heads up, Margaret. I have completed the categorization for the cemetery categories that I created improperly. There were three on the report that were not cemeteries and not my creations. I think I have the process down now but I would appreciate any feedback you can offer for my work on these in the future.

thanks for doing that Larry, much appreciated, regards, Margaret.
Larry, my name is Jane Smythe Parks.

I am researching my Jackson line as my mother was Ruth Jackson. Her father was Micajah Thomas Jackson, his father was Revered William Jackson. Family history confirmed by the census was that he was born in Davidson County Tennessee in 1805. We think his mother must have died. His father who also named William Jackson, brought him to Sumner County Tennessee when he was a tiny baby, some said 6 months some said 6 weeks. the elder William had a sister named Elizabeth Ing that lived in Sumner County & he left his baby with her to be raised. We were always told her husbands name was Alfred, but I believed that must have been her eldest sons name. I found a sale of property in Sumner County that listed all of her children. some had moved to Franklin County Il others over to west Tennessee. This was signed by Alfred Ing . In 1827 my Rev William married Charlotte Griffin in Sumner County, Joseph Ing was the bondsman. I have a copy of the grandfather of my Rev Williams Will it was probated in Edgecomb County North Carolina in 1805 the same year my William was born in Tennessee. in this will the elder William leaves to his daughter Fannie Pearman all the household goods, but to William Jackson, Mathew Jackson & Elizabeth Jackson Ing he leaves 5 pence apiece. I believe this must have been because those 3 had already moved to Tennessee & only that 1 daughter stayed in North Carolina. I also have copies of land transfers from a man named Josha Predeaux, it looks like he bought up a man named Scotts bounty land & then sold it to Alfred Ing, Margaret Cummins James Jackson, & William Cummins all of this was between 1816 & 1823 in Sumner County Tennessee. I saw the will you have for William Jackson & it is clearly a different person, but there just seems to be so much intermingling between the Jackson, Ings & Summers I was hoping you could help me figure out all this. thanks jane

Hi Larry,

Thanks for taking responsibility for Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention adopted profiles will sometimes need from their profile managers. One quick way to find the profiles you adopted is by searching your Contributions List for the word "adopted" and "manager." You can find a quick link to your Contributions List in the My WikiTree dropdown menu.

Let me know if you have any questions on how to find and record sources, merge duplicates, clean up GEDCOM biographies, and interpret the Suggestions report. I'm here to help!


PS If the profile needs GEDCOM cleanup, the AGC tool can help with formatting so that you can concentrate on the research. You can read more about it in the WikiTree AGC FAQ.

Hi Larry

Thank you for adding your DNA Test information to your profile on WikiTree. Your information will be propagated to the profiles of your parents and your ancestors within about 24 hours of being added. It will also propagate to the profiles of the descendants of your ancestors, so they may see your information under the heading "DNA Connections" just as you can see theirs.

Getting started with DNA outlines how to proceed to use your DNA test information on WikiTree and DNA is a link to a collection of links about WikiTree's many features involving DNA.

The DNA Connections list on your profile will provide a visual way for you to find potential relatives on WikiTree who have also added their DNA test information. Using DNA tools at sites like, if you find a relative that matches your DNA sufficiently and you have genealogical sources for the intermediate relationships, you can mark the specific parental relationships back to the most recent ancestor that you both share as "confirmed with DNA." For details, guidance, and examples of how to properly document DNA confirmations, see DNA confirmation.

To find other potential relatives, continue adding sourced profiles for other lines until you can connect on all branches. The more branches you are able to add the greater the likelihood of finding potential cousins to match with. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches that relate to the particular branches you are researching.

Have fun!

Thanks Larry for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz

Because Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within a project coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches dates of profile, avoid abbreviations, add sources with citations & links for sources to support the data. From wiki ID go to Research to find sources

The United States Project would be of interest. Adding the tag UNITED_STATES will connect you

Explore Pre-1700 Projects list to find one that fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic please read the goals & tasks of the project

Hi Larry

As you have been a member of WikiTree for a few weeks now I thought I would check in to see how you are getting on with the site.

Has the New Member How-To been helpful or left you with any questions?

I am here to help with any problems or queries you may have. Just click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page or send me a private message.

Sometimes links don't work in emails.  If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

Karen ~ WikiTree Messenger

Thank you for volunteering, L!

You are now a full member of the WikiTree community. I hope your experience among us is as enjoyable and fruitful as mine has been.

Start with the New Member How-To pages — they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around.

When you are ready take a look at projects, there may be a One Name Study for your surnames, or one covering your research location(s).

Take your time, and let me know if you need any help using the site.

Hilary ~ WikiTree Greeter

P.S. If you get error messages when you click links from WikiTree emails, try the links from your profile page.
