Selected Families and Individuals

Notes


Enoch JONES "Jr"

1.  Enoch inherited half of his father's land

2.  About 1801 the family moved to Monongalia County, West Virginia

3.  He bought 400 acres along the Monongalia River on the West side of the river, which, was a few miles Northwest of Morgantown.  About six months later he sold 100 acres to his brother-in-law, John Sanders

4.  By 1810 the family had grown to four daughters and four sons.  Two daughters had left .the household by this time;  either through death or marriage both would have been no older than 18 years

5.. Enoch lived in Morgantown, West Virginia for over 20 years and owned a mill and was Justice of The Peace

6.  In June 1816, John Wilson provided a bond to the District to keep an "ordinary" (tavern) at the Jones Mill.  It is possible that one of Enoch's  daughters had married John Wilson or possibly one of his sons.

7.  By 1810 Enoch had added three more sons and two daughters, and the family had a total of nine children at home.  They had lost one daughter. probably by marriage.

9.  His wife Ann died after bearing at least 14 children in nearly 30 years and possibly more that died young.

10.  It appears that Enoch was in Kentucky by 1923 when he married Sally Holliday on March 23, 1923

11. It appears Sally had died before 1850 and he had married Jane, but, no credible marriage record has been found.


Sarah "Sally" CAVENHOOVER

1.  It appears that Sally's first husband's name was Joseph, who died in 1819 , leaving Sally a widow with a son and three daughters.

2.  Both Joseph and Sally could have been born in Delaware, Virginia or West Virginia.  There was a prominent Holliday family that lived in Duck Creek Hundred, Delaware and Joseph was a common name in that family.  If both Joseph and Sally were born there, it is very likely that they knew Enoch Jones before everyone went West.  Enoch and Sally had a son, James, born in February 1824, and very soon thereafter, they headed West for Sangamon, Illinois.  The family included at least 8 Jones children and 4 Holliday children.  They settled in what was to become Island Grove township, a few miles from Springfield, Illinois where Enoch bought 187 acres of land in 1829 and 1830.

3. By early 1850, Enoch had joined his children in Knox County, Illinois
