|Birth: ||Jan. 15, 1863|
He wasn't born in Wales. His parents Samuel and Susanna lived in Knox County, Illinois in 1870. The census lists John's place of birth as Illinois. His parent's were born in Pennsylvania as was their oldest child. The rest of their children were born in Illinois. One of his brothers was Samuel A Jones. He later lived in Colorado after the death of his wife but he is buried in the same cemetery as his wife is in Illinois.
I think Johns middle name could have been Govial; which I believe now is George in Welsh.

Samuel Jones (Father of John) built the houses at 928 Mill street and 930 Mills Street. (CHANGED TO PERSHING AVENUE)He appears in the 1870 census as being 66 years old. John lived at the 930 address and rented out the 928 Address to my great grandfather John Lanigan. Margaret, John's daughter and wife of John Goviel Jones inherited both of these houses. These houses were handed down and eventually Timothy Edward Lanigan became sole owner after the death of his sister Julia. After Timothy died; the 2 houses went to my Grandfather James Aloysious Lanigan and his sister Julia Lanigan.These houses are mentioned in his will.
