Jane McElreath Jones
Birth: 1790
Easley
Pickens County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 10, 1871
Pickens County
South Carolina, USA

Jane's McElreath family lived in Brushy Creek, SC when she was a child. Her parents had come to America from Scotland and Ireland. Jane married Joel Jones when she was about 20 years old and at about the same time her McElreath family moved on to Georgia and points West. The documents and letters available suggest to me that in the first part of the 1800's, Jane's parents Michael and Jencie McElreath were afforded respect as heads of the McElreath and Jones families. As the years went by, leadership of the Jones family naturally shifted to Joel and Jane. They stayed in Pickens County and prospered as did many of their 11 children. The large Jones clan, more than 100, seems to have centered around Joel & Jane until their deaths in the 1870's.
