David Andrew (D.A.) Jones
Can you please link my great-grandfather, David Andrew Jones to his two wives?

His first wife, Elizabeth Jones, is buried in the Kyle Cemetery, Jasper County. Her memorial number is 14152761. She died in childbirth to a third child and she and the infant was buried together according to what I have been told by family members.

His second wife and my great-grandmother, is Iola Hawthorne Jones, and she is buried in the Friendship Cemetery, Jasper County. Her memorial number is 5581681.

I am the granddaughter of David and Iola's son, Harvey "Hob" Jones. One of my great uncles told me that Great Grandpa was called Davy by everyone.

The details of his death per his children was that he had started to town in his wagon which was pulled by two of his horses. One of the horses got spooked and started running away and Grandpa was thrown from the wagon at which time he was run over by one of the wheels. Grandma Iola heard him calling for help and got some of the children to go help her carry him into the house. He lived about five months and eventually died from his injuries.

In 1938, Grandma Iola orgainized the first Jones Reunion for all the children and their families. This year marked the 74th year of the reunion which is held annualy the first Sunday of May at Mill Creek Park Pavilion on Lake Sam Rayburn.

As of this year, there are three surviving children of David and Iola Jones: Henrietta "Etta" Jones Pinner age 100 (as of Feb 2012), Earl Jones age 94 (turns 95 in June) and VerbaLee Jones Turner age 92 (turns 93 in October).

Thank you for your help.
