Wiley Jones Family
Family of Wiley Jones ©

Wiley Jones was born circa 1812 and is believed to be the Wiley Jones (3) listed as son and heir of John Jones Sr. In 1831, he married Sarah [Sally] Hendrickson, daughter of John H and Mary Johnson Hendrickson. About 1836, Wiley moved his young family from Harlan County to near Barbourville in Knox County and about 1850, after returning from the Mexican War, to Laurel County. Wiley died 19 Dec 1893 and Sarah died 4 Feb 1900.

John's children are listed in a Harlan Circuit Court case regarding the disposal of land left in his estate. This researcher believes that the Wiley Jones of Laurel County is one and the same as the Wiley Jones who is son of John. Other candidates are eliminated as Wiley is the only potential candidate old enough to be John's son and yet alive and in Kentucky in October of 1870. The naming pattern of the children supports this conclusion.
