This information was furnished to me by a distant cousin who is working on our lines and I have copy/pasted it here. Polly Froelda Jones was the daughter and eldest child of Joseph and Rachel Walker Jones. I have Rachel's family record and it records 13 surviving children the last being my great grandfather James Madison Jones. If anyone has a connection to this family I would appreciate your information.
