Sanford Twp. 13 North Carolina, Vol. 45 ED.82, Sheet 7 JONES, FRENCH M. 26 m. born Sept. 1874 MATTIE H. 38 f. born May, 1862 EDWARDS, JOHN L. Bo. 44 m. born May, 1856 Information received from Nancy Brister From Carol Bennetts RichmondCounty Graveyards, I find the following on VELINA JONES VELENA T. JONES b. 12 29 1831 d. 7 10 1881 wife of A.W. JONES OldEast Side Cemetery Moved from Rockingham Cemetery. This location seemsstrange. He is not present on the 1900 census but the son is. Son livesin Rockingham, Richmond County, NC. Needs investigation. Perhaps thefamily moved there because one of the older children was there. Also,there is a will in Richmond Co. for K.M. McDonald in 1899, mentioningthat he was giving to his dear sister, KITTIE J. MARTIN, the oldMURCHISON place, which is situated in POCKET TOWNSHIP, Moore County.Witnessed by A.W. JONES son and S.W. JONES. Need to identify S.W. JONES. Agnes Buckley found in Moore County Real Estate Records that ALLEN JONES,Jr. sold 7 1 2 a. to ALEXANDER McIVER in 1895, so from this we deducethat ALLEN W. JONES probably died in 1895 at the age of 76. Information supplied by George Willcox concerningthe location of Carbonton, NC. 1. Moore County was formed from the upper part of Cumberland Countty.Chatham and Moore were adjacent. Carbonton was just across the river fromChatham during the 1800 s. This is where Pocket District was. 2. From Mr. Willcox s book, pg. 499 concerning Carbonton Academy is situated on a branch of the Fayetteville and Western Plank Roadrunning to Evan s Mills, on an elevation and healthy position, near theplace formerly known as Millian s Academy . Excellent board can bereadily obtained at A.W. JONES s and many other first rate families nearthe academy, at from $5.00 to $6.00 per month. Cyrus Harrington, Evan sMill, June 30, 1854. Later Harrington wrote to the Fayetteville Observer and expressed hishopes for the future of Carbonton. His letter precipitated the followingresponse Carbonton Our readers have doubtless noticed theadvertisement of the flourishing male and female schools on Deep River which is the upper part of the Cape Fear River , in the County ofChatham. The Proprietor, in writing to us a few days since, says Youperceive that I call the place at which I am teaching Carbonton. GovernorMorehead suggested the name and this I hope will prove to be. Dr. Emmons the State Geologist of NC said, Lowell South or the Mason Dixon Line. Let a Southerner, not a Northerner, give a name to the place which naturehas designed for a large city. The Place now contains four stores, andafifth will soon be erected. This looks something like a town. The placehitherto had been known by the name of Evan s Mill is near the head ofthe navigation, and is in the midst of the coal field. ....The storesat Carbonton were said to have been operated by R.A. Stewart, who movedthere from Fayetteville, William Campbell, Duncan Campbell, WilliamRhodes and ALLEN JONES. 3. Pocket is a township which included the village of Carbonton. The roadin the court minutes was probably the road that passed by his house Allen Jones . Then, the Chatham line was only about a mile away. 4. There were a number of Jones families in Chatham. The land on LongMeadow of Buffalo Creek is in northern Moore near the town of Robbins,some 20 miles from Carbonton. This is a location Patty found on an 1832land grant to DAVID JONES that listed ALLEN JONES as one of the chaincarriers.
2). When Patty was growing up, her grandmother, her father and her aunts toldher about VELINA BROOKS who was her g g grandmother and the wife of ALLENJONES of Moore County, NC. Patty  s Aunt Lina, sister of her father, wasnamed after this ancestor. Evidently it was a very popular name in theBROOKS family because Patty has located six other women named Lina orLena among the descendents of VELINA BROOKS   brothers and sisters    LinaKirkman, descendent of Col. Isaac T. Brooks, Lina Brooks, daughter ofCol. Isaac T. Brooks, Lena Clegg, daughter of Elizabeth Brooks, LenaBrooks, daughter of Francis Marion Brooks, Lena Lineberry descendent ofFrancis Marion Brooks. Then VELINA BROOKS JONES named her own daughterVELINA and her g  granddaughter was named Lina Register. Aunt Lina named her first child, ADDIE, for her grandmother ADDIE JONESREGISTER, the daughter of VELINA BROOKS JONES.
