The Elusive Ancestor

I went searching for an ancestor, I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will.
He married where a courthouse burned, he mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the U.S. census.
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame.
And every 20 years or so, this rascal changed his name.
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed; But the weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest.
He died before the court clerks decided to keep records.
No family bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts.
To top it off, this ancestor who caused me many groans, just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named JONES!!!

I'm glad to have them in family hands! If I have others you are related to, just let me know and I'll transfer them, too.

I found an obit & entered his memorial & linked him to his parents. It appears he may be a relative. If you would like a transfer of his memorial - just let me know. I also retained a copy of the obit - again - happy to forward if you want that too. Kim
