The Matthew Jones family moved from Anson Co, NC sometime between the birth of Talitha Pinckney (May 8, 1829) and the birth of Henderson Tillman (Dec 26 1830). The 1830 Census of Henderson Co. TN places them there.  They settled around Haley's Creek in the Oak Grove area.  The Jones history in Tennessee intertwines with the Scotts, Garners, Presleys and Howells.  One family went on to Texas in 1893, but most settled in the Henderson (Surveyor District 9), Hardin, Decatur Co. TN areas.

Anyone interested in the history of this family prior to the 1800's or specific information about Matthew's children may contact Bill Jones.
