Nancy Bellzona's Picture Book
The Joneses - Adah Gertrude Jones Wadley


Adah Gertrude Jones WadleyMarch 11, 1890 - July 13, 1986

Daughter to Bellzona and Joseph Hubbart Jones

This girlish picture of Gertrude was taken around and about the age of fourteen which would have been about 1904. Gertrude's father, Joseph Hubbart Jones worked for the post office in Grandberry, Texas. The family migrated from there up through the Red River Valley then on to around Guthrie Oklahoma at the time of the land run. They then settled in and around Guymond, Oklahoma which is close to the Panhandle. Bellzona was industrious and all the pictures show the children well dressed. Gertrude learned these things from her mother since her children always looked well groomed with her own sewing ability. Bell did teach the young girls to use a needle at the earliest age, starting with hand hemming tea towels. Crochet would be taught by using the string from gift wrappings. The resulting shiny doily was a pleasure for the child.

Gertrude married early and when her family moved "back to the Osages," the young woman stayed with her husband separated by too many miles to allow them to have close association. Their strong culture, however; kept their closeness and they did correspond, exchanging pictures and events through the mail.

From these roots have come a great contribution to society since her children and the grandchildren have varied gifts. Some are teachers, some are ministers, registered nurses and so on.
