James Jones was born CA 1755  Prob. in Virginia; removed to Franklin Co, Ga, prior to 1800, where his name first appears on the 1800 TL . He lived on North Fork of Broad River, and was a neighbor to the Jacob Hollingsworth family. He died prior to Nov. 11, 1820  in Franklin Co or Habersham Co, Georgia.   His estate was settled in November, 1820, Habersham Co, Ga..  (Bk C P 175- Heirs of James Jones, Dec'd. signed deed)

James Jones was from Frederick Co, Virginia, according to Power of Attorney he gave to Joseph Jones, (His brother?) dated August 10, 1802,  to sell the land he still owned there, and to collect debts still owed him.  He may have been the son of Barbara _____ and was apparently "adopted" by her husband James Jones who left the following will:

James Jones' wife was named Mary (Polly).

FRANKLIN CO, TN CIRCUIT COURT, 1857 BOX 26, 
THOMPSON  vs JONES -3

Burrell Thompson claims that negro "boy" named George, age 24, now in possession of Joshua Jones, is actually Thompson's property, "for the present year" H. S. Shied is Thompson's security.  George, valued at $1,000.  W. H. Willis substituted for Thompson at Court, 1858.

Deed made by Mary Cunningham to Joshua Jones and wife last October, (1857) may be read as evidence in the case.  After the deed was made, Mary hired the boy to Thompson for 1857.  Jones went to Coffee County and forcibly took him and brought him home to Franklin County. and thereupon Thompson initiated this suit.

Letter from R. B. Roberts to Mrs. Shield "Your letter of date 31st of last month...I at the request of Mrs. Mary Cunningham at Henry S. Shied's something over twelve months since, drew up a deed of gift from her of a negro man to Joshua Jones.. she signed the same. She then gave me the register's fee and requested me to register it...which I done and carried it back to her at Shied's...she requested me to give it to Mrs. Shied, which I done.  I hope the above will answer all the interrogatories you have desired.

Deed reads"...for the good will and regards I have for my friend Joshua Jones and his wife, Delilah, of Allisonia, Franklin Co., ...for their natural life , for their own use and not subject to their debts...George...Jones may deed or will the negro as he wishes at his death, if she survives them both..  " Wit: R. B. Roberts, M. E. Shied.

The deposition of Elizabeth Willis was offered and objected to, the court decided that so far as any declaration proved by her of Mary Cunningham made before the deed of gift and while the plaintiff of the negro before this suit they were competent, but as to any declarations after the suit they were incompetent, and the deposition was read, which is as follows:  

Elizabeth, Willis, age 61 years, next called and sworn...Do you know the parties?

"I am a little acquainted with them both."

Do you know Mary Cunningham?  Have long have you known her?  Have you at any time been intimate with her?  Did she ever confide in you as a friend, If so, in what way?

"Yes, I have been acquainted with her about thirty years.  I have been intimately acquainted with her about ten years.  And, she professed to make confidential communication to me."

Who was Mary Cunningham before she was married?,  and what relation was she to the defendant, Joshua Jones?

"Her name was Jones and she was the Aunt of Joshua Jones, she was the sister of Joshua Jones' father."

Did you ever hear Mrs. Jones (Cunningham) speak of Joshua Jones, in connection with the boy George, and controversy, if so, when, and how often, state as near as you can all that she said.

"I have heard her speak of it often, I think the first time I heard her speak of it was about the time that Joshua Jones was afflicted at Allisonia.  I reckon it had been about four or five years ago.  That was a perpetual thing in all our conversations. Before she made her will, she appeared to be much troubled about his long affliction, and he was poor, and his wife was afflicted, as she said provided he lay long like Old Bro. Jones (John, his father).  She did not know what would become of them.  And this boy, Doc, she always called him to me, she felt it was her duty to bestow to Joshua and Delilah to help Delilah to wait on Joshua, provided he lay long like Old Bro. John Jones."

Did you hear her speak of the matter afterwards, and if so, for a period of what time?

"...frequently, ...I do not think that I was ever with her and had a private conversation, but that she spoke of it."

State particularly what took place, and what she said the last conversation you had with her

." I think it was in the month of May, 1857.  I went to Church on Sunday; General Patton and his sister were there.  I inquired of them about the old lady.  The sister asked me to go up and see the old lady, she said Grandmaw wanted to see me.  I told her I thought I would come that evening. The General also invited me.  I told him to tell her that I would be down in the evening.  William H. Willis ad myself went down, when we got there, there was no white person there but Mrs. Osborn and the old lady. Compliments were passed.  After sitting awhile, she asked Mr. Willis and Mrs. Osborn to walk out into the other room, told me to shut the door.  She asked me then to help her up and asked me to help her to her chair.  So soon as she sat down, she said she thought she would never see me no more.  I asked her why, what made her think so, she said she had seen so much trouble and had been so afflicted. I asker her what had been a troubling of her, she said that boy Doc you always heard me say was for Joshua, there had been a great fuss about since I seed you (last) I says what now, Aunt Polly.  She said the boy is not allowed to come here, she said he was almost naked, he could not come here for his mother to patch his clothes, I asker her why, she said Patton would not let him.  She then said she wanted to see Joshua, I said why don't you send for him, she said she did not reckon she could get any of them to go.  I said I'd make the negro go.  She said she could not get to see the negro.  I says where is the negro.  She answered, at Burl Thompson's, doing me no good.  I get nothing for it, and I wish Joshua had him.  I asked her if she had not hired him.  She answered that she had told Henry Shied to hire him three months..."

"Did the lady say anything about her Will and about a deed of gift?"

"Yes, she named about the Will in speaking about the boy.  I said I thought you had willed that boy to Jones.  She said that she had, but they said that the Will was of no account...I asked her why.  She said something about Hollingsworth's Will, she hardly knowed what.  She said she had made a deed of gift to Joshua, and got Brad Roberts to write it and reckoned that would do."

How long has that old lady been a widow, and how many negroes did she have?

"I do not know, but it has been several years.  I suppose she has seven or eight."

Where does she live, and where has she been living since she has been a widow?

"As far as I know, she is living at General Patton's and has been living there since last winter was a year ago.  Before that she lived at Mr. Henry Shied's. After Mr. Cunningham died, she lived at the home place for two or three years.  She remained there until she went to General Patton's.  She remained at General Patton's until she went to Mr. Shied's as above stated."

Has General Patton remarried since the death of Mrs. Cunningham's daughter? What relation is Henry Shied to General Patton?

"It is said so, and Henry Shied is a son-in-law of Mr. Patton.
Has not Joshua Jones brothers and sisters that are as poor as he is and has not the old lady grandchildren?
He had brothers and sisters, but I do not know how poor they are, and she had grandchildren."
Signed by: Betsy A. Willis

Isaac M. Wilkerson states he wrote a Will for Mary Cunningham in 1853 or 54.  She later asked him to write a bill of sale for boy George to James Patton.  He was asked her age and "who were her family?"...
"I do not know her age but suppose her to be near seventy years.  She had only one child, Salina Patton, wife of General Patton.  She is now dead."

Burwell J. Thompson was asked about his hiring the negro.  Claimed that Jones came by his plantation one evening while George was in the field, and next morning realized that George was gone.  Thompson went to Jones' and found George there.  Letter brought to Court but not read to Jury, copied into records.

Pelham, Tennessee, August 3, 1857

Mr. J. Jones, Sir:
A few days ago I caught George stealing a bag of wheat, besides he is lazy and impudent and besides I feel that I cannot keep him and treat him as I would wish. Therefore, I desire that you would take him.  You can have him on the following terms, and no others: "First allow me to whip him, what I think he justly deserves.  Second, withdraw the suit and you pay the costs.  Third, you pay me from the time you get him until Christmas, and the time he has lost since I have had him.  This offer I have made thru advice of your friends, and mine, and I believe it to be more than strict conformity to the rules of justice toward you.  Feeling confident that you will agree to them,  I will wait a few days.

Yours, B. J. Thompson

Mrs. Lefevre stated that she is the Mother-in-law of the defendant,.  She saw Mrs. Cunningham on a Sat. in April, 1857 and Mrs. C (Cunningham) asked Mrs. L.(Lefevre) if Joshua (Jones) had been to Winchester to examine his Uncle's (Old Man Hollingsworth's) Will.  Witness said he had. She then asked if the property was entailed as witness told her, that he said it was not.  Raised up her hands, and said "I always said so".

The following has been taken from the History of the Community of Hayden or "Cow Prairie" in Van Zandt Co, Texas

"On 24 Aug 1895, James R. and Sarah M. Box deeded two acres of land to the school and a frame, two-story building was erected east of where the church is now, at the crossroads. The upper floor of this building was used as the meeting place of the Woodsman Lodge.

In Jan, 1900, the members of the Baptist Church then at Myrtle Springs voted to change their meeting place to the Cow Prairie School House.

Sarah M. Box deeded 1.3 acres of land on 18 Mar 1904, for the purpose of building a church.

An influential man in the community was Charlie Box. He was ordained as deacon in 1910. On Sunday mornings Charlie would go out to the barn, harness his horses, hitch them to the wagon and tie the horses to a tree. Charlie then would walk on to church early enough to sweep, clean and warm the building before time for Sunday services, secure in the knowledge he had provided the transportation for his family to join him for the worship services."
