It is not this copyist desire to refute any of
the statements made in this diary by my grandfather, John Jay Johns,
but his notes were from memories of fifty years prior and the names
may have become mixed in his mind. From Page #32 [November
3, 1880 - November 18, 1880] I beg to change the information
to the following:
Anthony Winston (1750-1828) married in 1776 Kesiah
Jones (1760-1826). Anthony Winston was born in Henrice Co. Va.,
and died in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Kesiah Jones' brother, Arthur
Jones married Sally Baker. A son of Anthony Winston and Kesiah
Jones Winston named Isaac Winston married Catherine Jones a daughter
of Arthur Jones, namely his first cousin. another son, Anthony
Winston, Jr. Married Sally A. Watson.
From Page #33 [Letter
to Mary Rice], additional information:
Peter Jones born in Wales in 1599, came
to America from Southampton in 1623. He settled in Henrice Co.
Peter Jones married Margaret Wood, daughter of Major
General Wood. He died in Henrice Co. Va., in 1662.
Peter Jones and wife, Margaret Wood Jones had a son:
Captain Peter Jones born in Henrice Co. Va. in 1651 and died in Prince
George County in 1726. Captain Peter Jones married Mary Wood daughter
of Abraham Wood. They had a son: John Jones born in Buckingham
Co. Va., about 1710. He married Elizabeth Walker who was born
in Kent Co. Va., about 1719. They had a son:
William Jones, Born in Buckingham Co., Va., in 1745
who was killed at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on March 15, 1781.
He married Agnes Walker, a daughter of James Walker.
Agnes Walker was born in Buckingham Co., Va, in 1749 and died in Buckingham
Co. Va. in 1819.
Their children: (William
Jones and Agnes Walker Jones)
James Jones, John Jones, David Jones, Joel Walker Jones and William
Joel Walker Jones married Agnes Gibson daughter of Thomas Gibson
and Wife, Martha --- Gibson.
The children of William Jones and Agnes Walker
Jones were young apparently and the Court appointed a guardian and
considered them orphans. William Jones' estate was settled in
Campbell Co, Va in 1783. Agnes Walker Jones died in 1819 and
so far as I have been able to find out did not remarry.
