A small genealogy of Jones' from Harlan County, Kentucky branching from the patriarch, Stephen S. Jones Sr. 1750 - 1844 formerly of St. Mary's County, Maryland and late of Harlan County, Kentucky, including collateral families. Our Jones' have lived in Harlan County, Kentucky since 1797, though descendants are scattered from here to yonder. As we study this family of Jones' we learn much about where we come from. We find new information frequently about our Jones and present that information as soon as we can. We try to be as factual as possible, including references and citations to help facilitate legitimate research of this austere pioneer family. In some cases, however, as in all genealogy study, questions arise and opinion as well as speculation looking for answers may occur and are duly noted wherever possible.
