Elizabeth Hampton Jones
Picture Shared by Jill Sweatman

Elizabeth is the granddaughter of OLD Alexander Standridge, the daughter of Mary Standridge Jones, the neice of Rhoda Blevins, Martin, John, Lem, and Samuel James Standridge. She was at least 1/8 Cherokee and perhaps more.

Elizabeth was the daughter of James Jones and Mary Standridge born about 1823 in Tennessee, probably Marion County. She came to Arkansas with her family in the late 1820s and early 1830s. She married Andrew Hampton, son of Joel Hampton and Elizabeth Page, before 1850. Andrew died during the Civil War. Elizabeth was readmitted to the Cherokee Nation in 1888. She is on the "Old Settler" Roll. This picture was probably taken in the Cherokee Nation between 1890 and her death.

Jill sweatman stated that the picture was given to Mattie Jane Hampton Sweatman (Jill's Great Grandmother), and she gave it to her daughter, Flossie May Sweatman, who passed it to her son, Flavious Cornelius O'Gara Jr. and he shared a copy with Jill. Now Jill has shared with me and I hope to share with many other Jones/Hampton/Standridge researchers.
