RE: Mary Susannah Jones Fears Lannie, I've been thinking about this, and I have a theory. It is also very possible that Mary Fears is buried where her mother Sophronia is, at Old Bethel Cemetery in Greene County. I noticed Mary and her mother died the same year, 1906. This might explain the Obituary's reference to the "Family burial ground". Old Bethel is just about 2 miles north of Caldwell's Chapel. So the mileage is still very close. It just makes more sense to me, because prior to 1906, no relatives of Mary were buried at Caldwell's Chapel. Her sister Ida didin't die until the thirties. There are some Jones's there but I can't find a relation. The Fears' are all buried at Pleasant Grove Cem which is only a couple of miles out of Jonesboro, so it couldn't be the "Fears" family Burial ground. My best guess is Mary passed soon after her mother, or before, and was probably buried beside or near her at Old Bethel Cemetery, just across the Greene County (AR) line. I will go out there and have a look sometime...meanwhile don't give up! all the best!! JOEY
RE: Mary Susannah Jones Fears Lannie, "12 miles north of the city" sounds like Caldwell's Chapel cemetery. The distance is almost exact, within a mile. That's where her sister Ida Ella is buried. I'm just guessing, though. Hope you find out for sure someday. Take care!!

RE: Mary Susannah Jones Fears Lannie, I'm so glad that I was able to help, THAT is what I love most about Find A Grave. Hopefully you noticed that the links are there on John R Jones' Memorial for HIS Parents, Great-Grandparents, and His Great Great Grandparents. Our 5th Great Grandfather, Johnathan Jones, was a Revolutionary War Veteran. Thanks! Larry J Gillhan Member # 47832442
RE: Mary Susannah Jones Fears Hi, Lannie YES I am related, Mary Susannah Jones's sister, Ida Ella Jones Dunnam Dacus, was my great-great grandmother. I can't remember the source I used, but It was one of those genealogy sites, and probably census info. I remembered my grandmother talking about her grandmother being named Ida Ella Dunnam and that Ida's mother was named Sophronia Victoria Eddings, and that Alexander Eddings was her second husband. After I found Sophronia's name by just a google search, it all just kind of fell together. Apparently, Sophronia's nichnake was "Froney". Nice to meet you, cousin! Larry J Gillihan
Dora Bartlett I checked with the cemetery office today to make sure I had the right location. I am sorry to report that her grave is not marked. I did take a photo that shows the location if you would like to have it.
ISAAC FINCANNON My husband, Fred N Martin, Jr was your 3rd cousin twice removed. Isaac was his gg-grandfather.
Interested in the payment your gramma got from the Indian Bureau, even tho less than a dollar. Do you have the papers? This might not mean the connection was Elizabeth, as it might come in on another "limb" of your tree.
