SONES FAMILY HISTORY

FOREWORD FROM THE AUTHOR / EDITOR

I reluctantly use the designation "author" when referring to my roll in publishing the Sones Genealogical Project; I "authored" very little. Far more than 90% of what's contained in these pages came word-for-word from another source. The only two exceptions to that is when I personally visited a cemetery and discovered previously untapped information. The other portion I authored are my hypotheses and theories when not verifiable by a reasonable collection of data. I have made every effort to tell the reader where I am making my own determinations based on what I consider a reasonable assumption. Of course, what is reasonable to me may be ludicrous to someone else. Weigh your own ideas and research against my suggestions or the contradictions given by others (There are many). I've spent decades of time, thousands of dollars in expenses, and thousands of miles of travel to accumulate what I've recorded. My hope is that researchers will use what I've put forth to prove or disprove my data. My information is no better than my sources. Some information came from memories-of-the-elderly who may not have the details quite as orderly as years before. Such was the case with the first edition, from which I made many corrections based on improved information. Feel free to email me with your ideas, leads and suggestions. I'm quicky approaching 60 years of age and not researching to the extent I did only a few years ago. I beg your forgiveness and happy to hand the torch of my research to those who are younger or fired-up to continue the work.

The SONES lineage in Marion County Mississippi runs directly to Henry SOANE, JR - a Burgess in the Virginia House of Burgesses from 1652-1661 and Speaker of the House of Burgesses in 1660-1661.

Thomas JEFFERSON, SR was born in 1653 in Curles, James River, Henrico, Virginia. He died in 1697 in Henrico Co., VA. He married Mary BRANCH in 1677 in Curles, James River, Henrico, Virginia. Mary BRANCH was born about 1660 in Henrico County, Virginia. She died after Nov 1700 in Henrico County, Virginia.

Their Children were Thomas JEFFERSON, JR who was born in 1677 and died on 18 Feb 1731; Martha JEFFERSON was born about 1679 in Henrico, Virginia; Mary JEFFERSON was born in 1679 in Henrico, Virginia.

Of special interest to the SONES researcher, Colonel Peter JEFFERSON (1708-1757), son of Captain Thomas JEFFERSON, JR (1677-18 Feb 1731) and Mary FIELD (1680-1715) married Jane RANDOLPH (1720-1776). They were the parents of Thomas JEFFERSON (1743-1826), who became the third President of the United States. Thomas JEFFERSON's Great-Great Grandparents were Henry and Judith (FULLER) SOANE. The Marion County, Mississippi Sones families are relatives of, but not descendents of President Thomas JEFFERSON.

Thomas JEFFERSON was one of five delegates to the second Continental Congress charged with documenting the reasons for the colonies' break with Britain. With little modification, this would become the Declaration of Independence. Later, his love for architecture, philosophy, and education would come together when he would found the University of Virginia at Charlottesville.

To better understand the connection, among Henry and Judith SOANE's decendants, Judith SOANE (1646-1703), first married Henry RANDOLPH (1623-1673) and secondly (marr 21 Oct 1678 Chickahominy, VA) to Peter FIELD (1647-1707). Mary FIELD (1679-1715), their daughter married Thomas JEFFERSON, JR (1679-1730), Sheriff of Henrico County, Virginia and son of Thomas JEFFERSON, SR (died 1697) and Mary (Martha) BRANCH.

One of JEFFERSON's descendants, Dabney N. McLEAN, has published a book recounting the JEFFERSON ancestry in The English Ancestry of Thomas JEFFERSON - available from Clearfied Publishing Co, 200 East Eager Street, Baltimore, MD 21202.

According to the epitaph that he wrote for his tombstone, President Thomas JEFFERSON's desire was to be remembered as the "author of the Declaration of Independence (and) of the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom, and Father of the University of Virginia." Descendants of Sally HEMINGS, JEFFERSON's slave, wish to be remembered as JEFFERSON's progeny.

In January 2000 the foundation that owns Monticello, JEFFERSON's home, acknowledged what DNA tests have suggested, that JEFFERSON fathered one, if not all six, of Sally HENNING's children. The Thomas JEFFERSON Memorial Foundation is made up of descendants of Thomas JEFFERSON (1743-1826) and his wife Martha (WAYLES) SKELTON (1748-1782) whom he married in 1772.

From his marriage to Martha WAYLES, JEFFERSON fathered six children, two of whom survived and had offspring, Martha (1772-1836) and Maria (1778-1804). Martha married Thomas Mann RANDOLPH in 1790 and Maria married John Wayles EPPES in 1797. JEFFERSON's wife, on her deathbed, asked her husband to never marry after her death.

Rumors of an intimate relationship between JEFFERSON and Sally HEMINGS began in 1802, a year after JEFFERSON was elected President. No record exists of his admitting or denying the relationship.

Sally HEMINGS was the half-sister of JEFFERSON's wife, Martha WAYLES, being the mulatto daughter of a slave and John WAYLES - Martha WAYLES' father.

According to Emily Croom...

"The long-established idea that all English land was held by the Crown also governed distribution of land in colonial Virginia, first through the Virginia Company of London under its royal charter (1607-1624) and then through the king’s officials in the colonial government (1624 forward). The year 1624 marked the revocation of the charter of the Virginia Company and the beginning of royal administration of the colony.

The patent was the instrument by which land was transferred from the Crown to an individual. (The same principle governed the distribution of federal land from the United States government to private owners from the late eighteenth century forward.) During the early colonial period, Virginia settlers qualified for patents under basically two systems: headrights and treasury rights.

In the seventeenth century, most of the patents were issued under the headright system. The London Company and then the Crown allowed persons who paid their own passage to the colony to obtain fifty acres each and an additional fifty acres for each person whose way they paid. For example, in November 1651, Henry SOANE received a patent for 297 acres in James City County for transporting six persons: himself, Henry SOANE Jr., Judith (sic) SOANE Sr., Judith SOANE Jr., John SOANE, and Eliza. (sic) SOANE (Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol 1:222). This abstract sends up a red flag for the genealogist to investigate the possibility or likelihood that these persons were Henry’s wife and children.

These headright claims could be held for months or years before being used or could be transferred to another individual, or assignee. In the example above, therefore, we cannot know from this source alone when Henry SOANE first arrived in the colony or how long he waited to make his claim.”

Lady GODIVA Countess of Mercia is the 26th great grandmother of Thomas JEFFERSON.

Peter Jefferson owned a thousand-acre tract in what is now Albemarle County, Virginia. He acquired an additional 100 acres of adjoining land from William Randolph for "a consideration of Henry Weatherbourne's biggest bowl of arrack punch." A house was built on the site in 1737, which was named "Shadwell" after the parish in London where Peter Jefferson's wife was born. Thomas Jefferson, son of Peter Jefferson and Jane Randolph Jefferson, was born at Shadwell. He lived there between 1743-1745 and 1752-1770 and moved to Monticello after the house was destroyed by fire in 1770.

Thomas Jefferson has these marriages:

Thomas JEFFERSON married second (mistress; not married):
sp #2) Elizabeth MOORE
born abt 1752 'Chelsea', King William County, VA
died 1809

An early controversy of Thomas Jefferson concerned his relationship with Elizabeth Walker, his neighbor's wife. When General John WALKER went off on a military campaign, he asked Thomas JEFFERSON to take care of his wife, which he did. When WALKER returned in 1768, he discovered that his wife had been sleeping with JEFFERSON. According to Jefferson Historian Fawn BRODIE, John WALKER challenged Jefferson to a duel, but JEFFERSON refused. Later, WALKER tried to make amends with Jefferson but JEFFERSON refused to come see him.

Thomas JEFFERSON married third (mistress; not married):
sp #3) Maria HADFIELD
born 1759 Florence, Italy
died 1838

Maria was an accomplished artist, but best remembered as the mistress of Thomas Jefferson. There’s an abundance of exchanged love letters that verifies the love affair. But to her surprise, she found herself no longer a consort after he started his relationship with Sally Hemings. Maria's brother George Hadfield was a famous architect who is best known for designing the Arlington House in Virginia.

Thomas JEFFERSON married fourth (mistress; not married): __ Apr 1789 Paris, France
sp #4) Sally HEMINGS
born 1773 Shadwell, Albermarle County, VA
died 1835 Charlottesville, VA

The date of 6 April 1789 for the "marriage" is used because the evidence seems to indicate that this was the time where the relationship moved into intimacy. JEFFERSON’s account book records that on April 6, 1789 he spent 96 francs on "clothes for Sally". Then, on April 16, 1789, he spent 72 francs on more clothes for Sally. Then on April 26, 1789 he spend 23 francs on "making clothes for servants." Finally on May 25, 1789 he "paid making clothes for Sally 25 francs."

6 Children of Thomas Jefferson & Sally Hemings:
1) Harriett HEMINGS
born 5 Oct 1795 Monticello, Albermarle County, VA
died 7 Dec 1797 Monticello, Albermarle County, VA
2) Beverley HEMINGS

Since the resulting child did not take his biological father’s name, I can only assume that there was never a marriage.

The Marion County, Mississippi SONES family comes down thru this union. The descendency of John SOANE & Hannah HOLLIDAY continue in a few pages after the small sections on William SOANE, SR and the THWEATT insert.

The following is from the records of the late Hen. A. S. Thweatt, Chief Clerk, Dept. Agriculture, Insurance, Statistics and History, State of Texas:

"James Thweatt, Prince George Co., Va., the earliest known Thweatt in America, was born in 1643. He had a son, James, who, in 1701, married Judith Soane in Henrico County, Virginia. From this marriage the following children were born John, Drury, Edward, Miles, James, David, Elizabeth, Edith, Frankie and Henry. Henry married Hannah, daughter of Edward Stanley of Henrico Co.

Thweatt: Sons, Elisha Barkdale Thweatt, Henry Coleman Thweatt. A communication is on file in the Capitol at Richmond, Va., dated Feb. 28, 1790, from Henry Thweatt, certifying that his colleague, Capt. Peter Thweatt, inspector at Robt. Belling Warehouse, departed this life on Friday, Feb. 26, 1790. The last named son, Henry, is said to be the father of Capt. Thos. G. Thweatt who served in the Revolutionary War. Thomas was born about 1752 and died in 1812. Thomas (Thwaite) Thweatt -- Va, Captain 14th Va. 2nd Dec. 1776. Taken prisoner at Germantown, 4th Oct. 1777; Paroled 27th March, 1778. Did not rejoin regiment." From "Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army. 1775-1783" by Heitman."

James Thweat arrived in Virginia forty eight years previous to 1707 or about 1659. Born in England, grandson of Michaell Thweat in 1643. Age at time of arrival in Virginia was 16. He had known the territory, from around 1648. His age at time of affidavit was 64. James Thweatt's birth year was 1643 .James Thweatt received a grant of 600 acres in 1670.

From "The Calendar of State Papers of America and West Indies," Printed in 1702, (an English book).

”Militia officers of Charles City County, Virginia, (these commissions were from the king). Among others, "James Thweatt." Va., James Thweat, 223 acres and time, from English sources, the name was spelled Thweatt. This accounts for Capt. James Thweatt of Virginia. From the same volume, "James Thweat (Thweatt), James.

The name of the manor was "Stonegrove." "SAGA OF THE SOANES". The family was Soane, and references as to names and land grants are from "Cavaliers and Pioneers" by Nell Marian Nugent. "William Soane, who came in the ship “Georg” in 1621 on transportation paid by John Southerne.

William & Sarah SOANE lived in Tyrrell County, NC at the time of the 1755 tax list for that county. The name of Sarah is missing from most records; I found it in a book listing "deeds of sale of 1762" in the FHL in Salt Lake City. William's Will was proved in April 1774 in Martin County. They lived contemporary with his relative President Thomas JEFFERSON.

8 proposed children of William & Sarah SOANE (order unknown; dates estimated):

born 1735

John lived in Martin County, North Carolina at the time of the state census of 1787 and the Federal censuses of 1790, 1800 and 1810. In the census of 1790, he was living with two other males - all over the age of 16, and no females or slaves. This seems to indicate that he was unmarried at 1790 and the other two males living with him in the Halifax District of Martin County were brothers, as they were all over the age of sixteen; although the possibility of an earlier marriage and two sons is by all means feasible. John died in Martin County, in 1814/5. At the time of the Federal census of 1800, John was married and had two sons and four daughters at home. John's will was executed by his nephew - Henry Hale SONES SR.

Children of William & Sarah SOANE continue:
2) Henry B. SOANE*
born abt 1737

*My connecting of Henry B. and Benjamin (#6 below) to this family is circumstantial and could potentially be error. These two men are among a handfull of Soanes in North and South Carolina. All others (to the best of my knowledge) were of one family - Children of William and Sarah. To place Henry and Benjamin in this family is easy based on circumstantial evidence. The main ingredient against placing Henry therein is that he was alive at the death of William but not named in the Will. Such occurrences aren't uncommon, but are dissapointing to the genealogical researcher. A reason why a child is not named can have many explanations, including estrangement or perhaps his portion as heir was taken care of outside the provisions of the published Will. Benjamin may have died prior to the death of (father) William. Henry Hale SONES, SR's who follows in the next generation is circumstantially determined to be the son of Henry B SOANES; Benjamin, if a member of this family is also a potential father of Henry. Henry H.'s father was surely a brother to John - the son of William. Both Henry and Benjamin are names that follow in generations of Henry Hale SONES, SR's descendents. Extensive record of Henry begins below; remember that Henry B's connection is based on circumstantial evidence.

Children of William & Sarah SOANE continue:
3) Francis SOANE (Census indicates female but spelling suggests male; other sources verify male.)
4) George SOANE

George lived in STOKES County, North Carolina at the time of the 1800 Federal census with his wife and one son and one daughter.

Children of William & Sarah SOANE continue:
5) Elizabeth SOANE
6) Benjamin SOANE*

Benjamin served as a Matross (an antiquated term referring to a very low classification of artillery gunner) in South Carolina's Fourth Regiment during the Revolutionary War. See note above under Henry B. SOANE.

Children of William & Sarah SOANE continue:
7) Stephen SOANE (or Steven) Stephen lived alone in Bertie County, North Carolina at the time of the 1800 Federal census where his name is given as Steven.

Children of William & Sarah SOANE conclude:
8) Phereby SOANE
born 1750

MY PERSONAL GUESS concerning Henry B. and Benjamin SOANE. I've suggested the hypothesis that one of these two men fathered Henry Hale SONES and that both are

Children of William. I believe Henry's middle name is Benjamin; these two men are one and the same. Unless evidence to the contrary arises, I believe this to be a reasonable working theory.

Henry Hale SONES JR was the first of the SONES family to move southwest to Marion County Mississippi. He was moved by 1812, and made the trip with Francis Barnes LENOIR. A little later, John TYNER and William BRADFORD SONES made the move. Finally, Henry Hale SONES SR came about 1817. Henry SR remained in South Carolina until after 1815 to handle the estate of John SONES.

Child 2 above:
2) Henry B. SONES
born abt 1737
died after 1800 Probably Brunswick County, NC.
married before 1761 (per Will of John Winn in Camden District, SC)
sp) Naomi Clader VAUGHAN
born 1736 Brunswick County, Virginia
died 8 Jul 1819 High Hills, Santee on Rafting Creek, Sumter County, SC (age 83)
Will probated 5 Feb 1821 Sumter, SC

Details concerning Naomi Clader VAUGHAN continues below.

This Henry B. SONES - the hypothetical father of Henry Hale SONES is recorded in the Federal Censuses of 1800 where we find TWO Henry SONES in the Southeastern United States. The one presumed to be the elder is found in Brunswick County, North Carolina. Possible brothers John (Martin County), George (Stokes County), and Steven (Bertie County) are also found in North Carolina. The other Henry - presumed to be the son of the elder Henry - is the only Sones found in the 1800 Federal Census in South Carolina:

Naomi Clader VAUGHAN was born about 1736 in Brunswick County, Virginia. She signed a will on 8 Jul 1819 in Sumter County, SC. Will mentions Elizabeth "relict of Mason SPEARS, deceased." She died on 24 Jul 1819 in High Hills, Santee, Sumter, SC. South Carolina, Camden Gazette, Page 3, 12th August 1819. "Departed this life on the High Hills, July 24, Mrs. Naomi HAMPTON, aged about eighty-three years (born ca 1736). The world has known, history records few such characters, as was this beloved and lamented old Lady. Her long protracted life was a pattern of piety and beneficence. To do the will of the Lord, to relieve and comfort suffering mortals, was her daily meat and drink. Having through Divine aid, finished the work assigned her on earth, she fell asleep in the arms of her compassionate Redeemer without a struggle or a groan. 'Well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord'."

Naomi had an estate probated on 5 Feb 1821 in Sumter County, SC. Will Book AA, PAGE 196, Sumter County, SC Bundle 48, Package 4.

Second child of William & Naomi HAMPTON:
2) Martha HAMPTON (Patsy)
born 22 Aug 1785 High Hills, Sumter County, SC
died 17 Aug 1856 Gadsden County, FL
buried: West End Cemetery, Quincy, FL
married twice / first: 11 Feb 1802 Sumter County, SC
sp #1) Joseph SYLVESTER
married second: 28 Jun 1814 Sumter County, SC
sp #2) James GIBSON

Children of first marriage migrated to KY, AL, MS. Latter descendants migrated to Florida. William HAMPTON has an earlier marriage to Ann MINTER in 1760.

3 Children by first wife, Anne MINTER:
1) Richard HAMPTON
sp) Amy __________
2) Alice HAMPTON
sp) Edward MICHERSON
3) Mary HAMPTON
sp) James CLARK

I have seen Elizabeth HAMPTON listed among the children of this first marriage but felt that the more credible set her with the second marriage.

4th and final known child born to Henry & Naomi SONES:
1) Martha SONES

Coming back to the son of Henry B. & Naomi SONES:
1) Henry Hale SONES, SR married a young lady named Sarah approximately 1785. This family had 4 children.

Next he married a lady usually referred to as the sister of his first wife - Mary, from whom all remaining children were born.

A third marriage has been spoken of but not confirmed and not probable according to my extensive research. See note concerning this matter (below) under John Horren SONES and second wife Martha Feraby EDWARDS. I would suggest that unless some evidence rises to indicate there was a third marriage, the possibility should be dropped entirely. I mention it here very reluctantly, and only because the first edition of this work (regrettably) spoke of it as a fact.

Children of HENRY HALE SONES, SR: THE FIRST GENERATION

Henry Hale SONES, SR
born abt 1761 Bertie County, N.C.
died __ November 1822 Columbia, Marion, MS
buried either Blackburn-Carter Cemetery, Bassfield, Jefferson Davis County, MS
or Blackburn Cemetery, Goss, Marion County, MS

Probate 24 Mar 1823 Marion County, MS

BLACKBURN-CARTER CEMETERY located four miles southeast of Bassfield: From Cemetery Rd in Bassfield go SE on Highway 42 for about 3/4 mile, then angle RT onto paved road. Follow this road for about 1 1/2 miles then Y to the left. Continue another 1.8 miles to a bridge, then 0.15 mile past the bridge, and turn RT onto paved road. Go 1.0 mile to a gas pipeline and turn LF. Proceed NE along the gas pipeline for about 0.2 mile to a fence with a "POSTED" sign. Cross fence, and by foot continue along pipeline for 85 paces, then enter the woods to the right (marked with a flagging tape in 1988 so very possibly missing. Angle RT into the woods about a 45 degree angle, and head east for 90 paces through the woods. Where the pine woods ends, the woods become very open, and just beyond this transition is the Cemetery. Fence is missing but 2 remaining fence posts suggest cemetery was about 50 ft long in the North-South direction and its width about the same.

BLACKBURN CEMETERY according to Marion County Mississippi Cemeteries book by Stanley W. Arnold Jr and Louise Anderson. A very old cemetery, now totally destroyed. The only indication of its existence is a large oak tree which was planted at the head of the grave of the revolutionary soldier Tyner. LOCATION: NW 1/4 SI T4N R19W, south of Goss. Directions: From Highway 35 intersection, proceed north on Highway 13 for 4.1 miles, and turn right onto a dirt road (there is a stop sign for traffic coming off this dirt road and it directly opposite old Highway 13; if you pass Buckley Rd on the right, you've gone 0.1 mile too far). Follow the dirt road several hundred yards until the woods on the right ends, and an open field begins. The large oak tree in the field on the right marks the cemetery.

Third child born to Henry Hale SONES, SR & second wife – Mary:
7) John Horren SONES (farmer)
born 1809 Sumter District, SC
died About 1865 Rosefield, Catahoula, LA
buried Lambert Cemetery, Rosefield area, Catahoula, LA

The oldest son of John Horren and Martha Feraby SONES was John Benjamin and buried in Lambert Cemetery. No other member of John Benjamin SONES' marriage family was buried in Lambert Cemetery. They are buried in Little Star Cemetery, in Holum, of Caldwell Parish, Louisiana, and this includes his wife – Emily Victoria METHVIN. Most of Lambert today is in shambles as it has not been kept up in years, and it is heavily hunted and timber cut. Few headstones are intact. We uncovered John Benjamin's headstone in a secluded area of the cemetery. Only one headstone was next to his, only inches away, and the indication is that they were placed together purposely. This other headstone is destroyed, but the base is much larger than John Benjamin's, which is more typical in size - estimated about 1-2 inches thick/ 18-24 inches wide/ 24-36 inches high. This accompanying headstone has a much larger base, indicative that this person next to him was of significance. Another space next to that one is missing its headstone completely. It is reasonable to assume that these two are the graves of John Horren and Martha Feraby SONES IF they died in that area where their home was located. At least one child of Feraby’s first marriage is also buried in this old cemetery. I excavated the entire area around the grave looking for the headstone and found nothing of significant size by which to make a positive id. There is reason to think that Martha died and was buried in Lambert but John went back to Lawrence County where he possibly died.

Another side note, I've chosen Horren as the middle name over the more conventional "Haren" or "Harren" because "Horren" is the spelling used by his father - Henry Hale SONES - in his Last Will & Testament, and if that's what his father wrote, it is a good bet that this is the correct and appropriate spelling, despite the probability that it is pronounced as with a strong southern drawl "Haw-ren", and as the more nasal-Mississippi dialects took over from South Carolina-drawls it changed to "Har-ren."

John Horren SONES married twice / first:
17 Jun 1834 Monticello, Lawrence County, MS
sp #1) Hester FARRIS
abt 1815 MS

Her Father: Thomas FARRIS

2 known Children born

John Herron SONES married second:
23 Aug 1849 Methodist Episcopal Church - South Hinds County, MS
Administered by Minister of the Gospel of said Church - L.S. SCOTT
having been bonded by John Byrum on 20 Aug 1849.
sp #2) Martha Feraby EDWARDS (Feraby)
born 1818 AL
buried Lambert Cemetery, Rosefield area, Catahoula Parish, LA

5 known Children born

Martha Feraby Edwards had two prior marriages
First marriage:
sp #1) Ervin HARRELSON.

Hinds County Marriage Record indicates her name as Ferabey HARROLSON (misspelled).

Feraby’s second marriage: 7 July 1849 Hinds County, MS
sp #2) John C. O'NEAL

Administered by William H. DEEN, Justice of the Peace. having been bonded by James B. Jordan on 7 Jul 1849. In the marriage to O'NEAL, her name is written Feraby Harralson (misspelled).

It should be noted that prior to moving to Louisiana with John H. SONES, she was always referred to as Feraby (variant sp), and after the move is only called Martha or Martha Perilla ("Feraby" horribly mispelled by census taker). The time from the execution of her marriage to O'NEAL and the subsequent beginning of her marriage to SONES was an astonishing 48 days. Not only that, but she is called by the first married name - HARRELSON - in each of her subsequent marriages, giving no consideration to her second legal union. The marriages to O'NEAL and SONES were both bonded, performed, and turned in as executed and recorded. The information comes from Hinds County Marriage Records - Book 3, and are so close that they are numbers 81 and 85 respectively. John C. O’Neal did not die, but is found living in the adjoining county of Simpson just a few miles south of Jackson (Hinds County where the marriage took place) during the 1860 Census – born abt 1818 is a reasonable match for the same man. Was the marriage annuled? There is no indication from my research through court records that anything of the sort happened. Is this a case of bigomy? Was this a major issue in the mid 19th Century? Times have certainly changed our discretionary actions in the past century in other areas of life and law. All questions and no answers from my end. I merely submit the data and the questions left over, and if anyone comes up with a substantiated resolution I'd like to use it in any subsequent edition of this work, should one be made.

I'd like to bring up a related subject here to the name "Feraby." I think it is possible that the name "Feraby" is the source for the rumor among the Louisiana SONES descendents of John Horren that his mother - Henry Hale SONES wife - was named "Fabia" or some variant thereof. The names are quite similar, but there is no substantiating whatsoever in my research that Henry had any acquaintance or matrimonial bond with a woman named Fabia.

Interesting fact:
July 30, 1860 Lawrence County, MS Census - Monticello Post Office:
Dwelling 269 - Family 270
SONES, J.H. (no age) male - alone

Aug 13, 1860 Catahoula Parish Census, LA - Pine Woods; Rosefield Post Office:
Dwelling 591 - Family 577
SONES, J.H. ----- (50) - male --- SC - Planter
-------Perilla -- (42) - female - AL
-------Sarah ---- (16) - female – MS
-------J.B. ----- (8) - male --- LA
-------Laurence -- (6) - male --- LA
-------Martha ---- (3) - female - LA
HARRELSON, Charles (18)- male --- MS

Just conjecture on my part, but more than likely John's wife just gave the Census taker the information on the family whether the individuals were at home or not.

John appears to be the only SONES in the earliest days of the family in southern Mississippi to have ties in Lawrence County. In the 1830 Federal Census he is found there as Head of Household of a Single Family Dwelling (living alone). Four years later (1834) he was still living there, and married his first wife - Hester FARRIS.

Noteworthy in the Catahoula Parish 1860 census, is that Charles HARRELSON is the only child left at home from her first marriage to Ervin HARRELSON. The older brothers - John Ervin & George Washington have moved out. Sarah is from John Horren's first marriage to Hester FARRIS, and her older brother Andrew Sidney has moved out. He is found at:

Wallace Ridge; Trinity Post Office; Catahoula Parish
Dwelling 260
Family 250:
SONES, Sidney (25) - male --- MS --- Laborer
----- Sarah -(17) - female - LA
----- Mary -- (4) - female - LA

In the 1870 Catahoula Federal Census, Sydney has remarried Eliza GUILFORD and is still found working for the CAGLE family four houses down from where Eliza lives in Trinity Community as follows:

Dwelling 1 Family 1:
SONES, A.S. 35 Farmer born MS

3rd "rumored" MARRIAGE OF HENRY HALE SONES, SR
AS PER CATAHOULA PARISH LOUISIANA SONES RELATIVES:
sp #3) FABIA __________

I was told that the maiden name was possibly Farve or Favre; can find no substantial record of this marriage. I reluctantly mention it here and I do not consider it as factual. See note above under Martha Feraby EDWARDS wife of John Horren SONES above.)

SIGNIFICANT MISTAKES IN THE OFFICIAL STATE RECORD

Mistakes due to incorrect spelling by census takers and other officials of record:

To begin:
Ruth SONES
born 1797 Claremont County, SC
married __ Jul 1815 Marion County, MS
sp) Daniel CLOWER

Also: SONES, Abraham & Elizabeth EVANS 19 Jun 1823 Lawrence County, MS

Also:
SONES, Susannah & Hiram HATHRON married 19 Jan 1823 Lawrence County, MS

Also: Bond: William DENNIS, Isaac NEWSOM, and Michael SONES are bound for $3000, Dated June 4, 1830. William DENNIS is executor of the estate of Ephraim BATES, deceased.

Also:
Washington A. SONES
married 22 Jul 1841 Marion County, MS
sp) Elizabeth FLETCHER

The situation in Marion and adjoining counties in Mississippi is reversed from most all areas of the United States. During the early 1800s the Sones family dominated the area and Jones were a minority, making the mispelling of Sones for Jones a common occurance.

ALL SONES ABOVE (THIS PAGE) SHOULD BE JONES – NOT SONES.

Notes of Ron Reid of Edmond, OK:

Deed of 1842 in Book C - Emma's name is recorded as Emma Amanda VANDERHURST. It appears that she was reclaiming some of Michael Vanderhurst's property on which he had not paid taxes on in 1841. The Tax Collector sale refers to Michael as "non resident" in Scott County, MS. However, she has always been refered to as a widow in the EASTLAND books. 1850 census shows the two sons, William and Michael VANDERHURST as living with their step-father Alfred EASTLAND and the daughter Mary VANDERHURST is living with the grandparents William & MARY D. SONES.

Ralph, son, Jan. 1880, age 20, TX,
married 1yr., grocer
Carrie P., dau.-in-law, March 1878, age 22, TX,
married 1yr.

On June 23, 1900 they were back in Gonzales and appear on the census for the second time:

Milton EASTLAND, Oct. 1842, age 57, TN, druggist TN/TN

Louisa PILGRIM, wife, May 1850, age 50, TX,

6 Children of whom 4 are living, parents born Missouri

Ralph, son, Jan, 1880, age 20, TX, married, merchant-groceries
Cary W. wife, Feb. 1879, age 21, TX, married

The family is found recorded in Gonzales in 1910; on this census, Milton and his parents are recorded born in Tennessee and Louisa’s parents are reported born in Missouri. In 1920 they were lodging in Dallas, City and County, TX.

Milton EASTLAND, 76, Ms., retired, SC/US
Louise P., 71, TX, MA./NJ

CHILDREN:
Thomas P. EASTLAND
born August, 1869 Gonzales County, Tx

According to the 1900 McLennan County, Tx. Census, and had apparently married about 1894.

T.P. Eastland, age 40, was living in Dallas County in 1910 with a second wife:
sp) Rhoda, age 25

T.P. EASTLAND, 40 m 2, 6 years, TX, MS/TX, salesman of surgical appliances
Rhoda, wife, 25, m1, 6 yrs., no children, TX, TX/TX

They were still there in 1920 with Thomas reporting age 51, a traveling salesman, father born in Georgia and mother born Alabama. Rhoda returns age 35, Tx., father born Ms., mother born Georgia. I found no Thomas P. in the Texas Death Index. I did find one in Oregon on that state’s Death Index; he died in Portland June 16, 1949 and left a wife named Jessie. She died in Texas January, 1968 and was born April 2, 1888 in Oregon according to the Social Security Death Index.

Alfred M EASTLAND
born in May, 1870 or November, 1871 in Texas, depending on which census you believe.
He married:
sp) Nina N. DeWitt Gonzales County, Tx.
License dated Oct. 23, 1895

He was recorded on the June 4, 1900 Waco, McLennan County census in his parents’ home, a druggist and married four years. Two weeks later he appears in the home of his in-laws in Gonzales:

Green DeWITT, April 1843, age 57, TX, farmer and stock raiser, father born Missouri, mother born Tenn.
Mary Ella, wife, Feb. 1853, age 47, TX, father born Ms., mother born TN
Nina S. dau., Oct. 1875, age 24, TX,
married 5 yrs, 1 child, telephone operator
Green D. Jr., son, Sept. 1878, age 21, TX, at college
Madora H., dau., Sept. 1881, age 18, TX, at college
Guss H., son, March 1885, age 15, TX, at school
Sue Manerva, dau., Oct. 1886, age 13, TX, at school
Ella Loise, dau., Dec. 1890 age 9, TX at school
Josephus J., son, Nov. 1892, age 7, TX

Mary Ella EASTLAND, granddau., Aug. 1896, age 3, TX
Fred EASTLAND, son-in-law, May 1870, age 30, TX,
married 5 yrs, druggist

In 1910 Nina and her daughter, Mary Ella Eastland, were still living in her father’s home in Gonzales. Alfred had returned Dallas, and had remarried:

A.M. EASTLAND, 37, Tx.,
married 7 yrs., MS/TX
Mary L. wife, 30, TX, TX/TX
Finley, son, 4, TX, TX/TX

In 1920 Alfred continued to live in Dallas;

Alfred EASTLAND, 47, TX, MS/TX Wholesale drug salesman
Mamie, wife, 40, TX, MS/TX
Fenley, son, 14, TX

Nina had not remarried and was living with her mother in Gonzales. Mary Ella EASTLAND had apparently married by 1920 though I do not have the record. Alfred Milton EASTLAND died in Dallas County June 29, 1933; a Nina EASTLAND died in Lavaca County, Tx. Dec. 16, 1967 and Finley EASTLAND died in Dallas Oct. 22, 1924.

Gertrude EASTLAND was born in May, 1876 in Gonzales Co., Tx. She had not married by the time of the 1900 census.

Ralph EASTLAND born Jan 1880 Gonzales County, Tx

He married Carrie Williamson in Gonzales County by license dated Nov. 1, 1899.778

In 1900 Ralph and Carrie were living in his parents’ home in Waco on June 4 and then Gonzales on June 23. They were living in San Antonio, Bexar County, Tx., in 1910 boarding in the home of a widow, Sarah BARBER. They had had a son Milton EASTLAND, age 4 in 1910.

I do not find them in Texas in 1920, and suspect that Ralph ended up in Portland, Oregon where his death is reported on Aug. (31), 1946.

This Indenture made and entered into this 13th day of June 1842 by and between JB WHITE Tax Collector of the County of Scott in the State of Mississippi of the one part and Emma A Vanderhurst of the other part..."

Emily Victoria METHVIN was married a second time after the death of John Benjamin SONES. The second marriage took place on 29 Oct 1896 at her home near Rosefield in Catahoula Parish, LA. Her new spouse was Arthur B. PRUDHOMME, born in May, 1833 LA. Arthur's father was an immigrant from France & his mother from LA. This was a very short marriage. I do not know if it ended in divorce or permanent separation, but by 1900 Emily lived separately with Willis & Iler. (Ella & Maggie had taken husbands the year earlier).The 1900 Census reports that Emily had given birth to 4 children - all alive. In 1901 Emily gave birth to Meg SONES who died soon after, for the 1910 census records her as having given birth to 5 Children - 4 alive. By 1900, Emily had taken back her deceased husband's name and the census reports her as a widow. Her headstone also gives her name as Emily V. SONES. Who Meg SONES' father was is unknown.

4) Louisa Jane SONES (Jane)
born 1860 Rosefield, Catahoula Parish, LA
died between 1900-1910 (see note below John Routon Mayfield)

Louisa Jane & brother Jefferson Davis SONES were living with sister Martha (& David) Gibson at 1880 Catahoula Federal Census.

Jane married 13 Apr 1889 home of D. W. Lambert (Justice of the Peace) Catahoula, LA:
sp) W. Y. MAYFIELD
born
died - see note below John Routon Mayfield

The first edition says W.G. Mayfield. I have a copy of the marriage certificate and in one place the initial is clearly a "Y", and in the other two places is a "Y" completely above the line of the signature, which gives the impression it is a strange "G". If this family shows up in any other place herein as the head being W.G. mayfield, it is an uncorrected mistake.

1 child of WY & Jane MAYFIELD:
1) John Routon MAYFIELD (Routon; pronounced Rouwtin)
born 1895 Catahoula Parish, LA

Routon is found living with the Jefferson Davis SONES family in the 1910 Census, and no record of either parent from my search. He was not with Jeff SONES in 1900, so it is probable that both parents died between 1900-1910. John continued living with the SONES family for the 1920 census. He is believed to have died in WWI.

For research purpses and to eliminate confusion, the following child is in the Rosefield Cemetery:
Annie Laura MAYFIELD
born 21 Jul 1899 Caldwell Parish, LA
died 22 Jun 1908 Caldwell Parish, LA
buried Rosefield Cemetery, Rosefield, Catahoula Parish, LA

Annie is NOT the daughter of WY & Jane MAYFIELD. Her father is:

M.O. MAYFIELD

Adapted from Obituary Monroe News-Star Jan 27, 2004

Davis Houston Sones graduated from Ouachita Parish High School and studied music at LSU before joining the US Army during WWII. He was a Radio Operator and Gunner with the 533 Bomber Squadron, 381st Bomb group. He served in England, Australia, Guadalcanal, New Hebrides, Fye Islands, New Guinea, and the Phillipines. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with Three Oak Leaf Clusters, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and the Good Conduct Medal.

Dave had three passions in his life - his family, fishing, and his music. He and Jeanne had four sons, listed below, and celebrated his 60th anniversary in November 2003, just months before his death. He was a loving, caring, husband and father and was adored by his family. He was an avid fisherman who maintained a strong connection to the salt water, speaking often of returning to the Gulf "just to put my feet in the salt water." As a young man he sang in quartets, choirs, on live radio - made numerous recordings, and was choir director at Terrace United Methodist Church in Houston, where he was a member. His love of music has been passed down to his Children and grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his grandson Robin Lee SONES (as per obit. not sure which son is the father of Robin), and sister Rosemary Sones MARTIN. At his death, he was survived by his wife, his sons, his sisters Elsie DOMKE and Sarah Cummings, ten grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.

Here are some notes by Dr. Sones from whom the above information came:

Other info: My great-grandfather was regimental adjunant for the 31st Mississippi during the War Between the States. We have a poem he wrote expressing a shortage of Confederate sympathizing and an excess to just wanting to be home with his "Callie Lee"....(Caroline Lee).

My grandfather for whom I was named, was well known as a circuit-riding Primitive Baptist preacher. Once I was on a plane from L.A., sitting by an elderly lady from Las Vegas who, on hearing my last name, remembered Elder Jim Sones preaching to "5000 people on the banks of the Mississippi River" many years before.

Thanks for all your work. When my Uncle Harry died, his widow gave me a box of geanological material he was working on, presuming that I would be the person to carry on his work. I have researched a little here and there....New York Public Library, some graveyards in England,.....but never had the time to give from a busy medical practice, so I was very happy a few years ago to find you had done what I always intended to do.

Thanks,
James Quitman Sones, II, M.D.

sp) Henry Melvin GIPSON
born 27 May 1887 Baxterville, Lamar, MS
died 30 Aug 1979 MS
buried Caney Baptist Church Cemetery, Baxterville, MS

I will suggest the possibility that the following may reflect the parentage of Henry Melvin GIPSON based on burials nearby Henry in Caney Church Cemetery and the corresponding dates:

John GIPSON
born 1818
died 29 Dec 1901
sp) Kitey __________
born 1834
died 28 Jul 1892
Sidney GIPSON
born 1848
died 1917
sp) Susan A__________
born 7 Apr 1857
died 3 Dec 1943

Although it is possible that Kitey would be the mother of Sidney, the 14 year space in births suggests that if John is the father, he had a prior marriage from which Sidney was born.

Originally I had Andrew listed as "Andrew Jefferson SONES". I changed it after this note from Jon SONES

"In reviewing information you have on my line, I have found that you have on of Andrew Jackson Sones' son listed as Andrew Jefferson "Jeffie" Sones who was married to Lorena Cuevas. This is my great grandfather and grandmother and I remember them prior to their death in 1966. I have been in contact with some family and continue to get information. According to the family, including the grave headstone that was purchase by his son Earl Anthony Sones (my grandfather), Jefferson is not his middle name. It was Jesse and everyone including friends and family would either call him Jess or Jesse. Grand
Children called him Grandpa Jesse and his wife was called Grandma Lorene."
