The work in compiling and
recording this information is dedicated to family, of immediate and
extended. Immediate for putting up with a mother's time sacrificed, and
extended family for generously sharing privileged information, this over
a period of ten years.
However, the most of my
appreciation goes to my father, Lee Otis Jones who jealously guarded
these old photographs and to my mother, Velma Louise Pensoneau Jones who
gave them to me. She being a great-granddaughter of Pasquel Pensoneau
has a dignified family history also.

In the first edition Joseph
H. Jones was listed as Joseph Herbert Jones according to a
daughter-in-law. This revised edition will show him as Joseph Hubbard
Jones because the notes left by his daughter, Gertrude, show him to be
Hubbard and because he had an Uncle Joseph Hubbard Jones.
The name Hubbard is
probably Herbert with the soft southern accent which was written as it
Computer work of format and
