Walsie Jones Watkins, was born in Valley Springs, Arkansas. May 29, 1871. She is buried in the Maplewood cemetery in Harrison, Arkansas. Joseph was also born in Valley Springs, Arkansas. There is a Jones family cemetery there where his grandfather, William Beaver Jones is buried.

An artist's eye sees many things, but is taught to portray only the beautiful. There is truth of observation in these old photographs, which is what Bellzona would have wanted. Joe's hands were always his pride, small and delicate. Hard work had left him with arthritis, seen here. In the picture on the other page is barely visible the pipe he always held as if receiving relief from the warmth of its bowl. There is a distinct sadness about his face, he was not able to hide from the camera. Joe never complained, about anything. He saw a problem and quietly worked through it to a solution, often, much to everyone's surprise. For instance, the day the children came home from a dreary long walk from the country school to see a motor scooter setting in the drive way. The memory over the years is still strong and precious. This he did when he was ninety years old.

There was, undoubtedly, a closeness between Joe and Walsie since she and Pierce had been married in Oklahoma close to Joe and Bell's home. A touch of nostalgia is seen here in her face. Pierce is looking on with what seems to be amused detachment at the cocky young men, Dennis & Lee.
