Minnie (Smith) Jones

Minnie "Nana" Jones, age 89, of Bristol, TN passed away at home on Wednesday, August 17, 2011 following a short illness.

Mrs. Jones was a great wife, daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend. She was known as "Nana" to all that knew her. She was married to Robert E. Jones for 62 years and they lived and raised their daughters in the Carterís Valley section of Kingsport.

Nana was a Christian, read her Bible daily, and loved the Lord greatly. She spent her life showing Christian love to her family and those she came into contact with. She was a Sunday school teacher, Willing Workers president, and scout leader. She was a member of The Morrison City Mission for many years and most recently attended Steel Creek Missionary Baptist Church in Bristol, TN. Nana cared for many people inviting them into her home and sharing meals with them. She was known for her fried apple pies, red velvet cake, and almost everything else she cooked.

She will be greatly missed but she did long to see her Lord and her husband, "Bob".

She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Etta Smith; husband, Robert E. Jones; sister, Evelyn Powers; and two brothers, James Smith and John Smith, Jr.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Shirley and Gary Addington, daughter and son-in-law, Debby and Jim Carter; grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Greg and Becky Addington; grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Brian and Donna Addington, granddaughter and grandson-in-law, Danielle and Marc Proctor; grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Justin and Shannon Carter, great-grandsons, Collin Addington, Caleb Addington, Tommy Rigney, Ian Addington, Hunter Proctor, Logan Proctor, Carter Proctor, and Derrick Carter; great-granddaughter, Jenny Kate Carter; sister-in-law, Zola Smith several nieces, nephews and cousins. Nana also had many dear friends in the tri-cities area.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Wellmont Bristol Hospital and Wellmont Home Hospice and her sitters (Barbara, Becky, Ada and Scarlett), for all they did for Nana and the family.

Visitation will be held on from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM at Morrison City Mission. Funeral services will follow with Reverend Steve Lyons and Reverend Clay Austin officiating.

Graveside will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 10:00 AM in Oak Hill Memorial Park.

RE: Nellie Minick Betchman 42543902
Another resource is the 1910 Census: She appears as Nelly, age 1, in the household of Olin Minick.

RE: Nellie Minick Betchman 42543902
Nell (Nellie) Ruth Minick Betchman was my aunt. Another aunt, Lillie, kept a lot of the family records and she had this date. It is also the date given in "A History of the Minick Family" by Johnson Bland Mobley, Jr. copyright 1970. Given the impossibility of her being born in April of 1911 when she had a brother born in February of 1911 and from childhood memories of her, I can only guess that she decided at some point to subtract a couple of years off her age so that she wouldn't be older than her husband, born in 1910.

The 1860 states age 3. The 1870 census states age 13. The 1880 census states age 22. The 1900 census states Nov 1860. The 1910 census says he is 51 years old. 1920 census states age 62. Makes this complicated. The first three census indicates 1857. It appears that in 1900 he became younger. I don't know. I can only go by his death certificate as verified by the first three census records.

His death certificate states June 1857 so who knows which is right. Thanks.

Hi Donna, Disrecard what I said before. I did more research on my Burles Floyd Hensley(Jones Cemetery). According to census James Roscoe and Burles are brother, but not the sons of Greenberry, Buna or Katherine Hensley. They are the sons of Samuel Turner 1880-1963(Find A Grave # 45286067) and 1/wife Millie Adkins Hensley 1870-1911(Find A Grave #45286091), both buried in Yancey County, NC, but not the same cemetery. Samuel Turner Hensley married second to Birdie Ann Hensley. I will quit buging you for now, take care, Barb
