Hi John, Jesse Jones is buried in the Addie Cemetery in Jackson Co. He is my great great grandfather. My sister & I have just started to research our Jones side of the family. I am curious as to your resource for the picture? Thanks, Linda

I am the daughter of Helen Ruth Davis Richards who was the sister of Vance Davis. I strongly believe that family should be with family. I truly appreciate all you have done in setting up his memorial. Now it is the family that needs to step in and personalize his memorial. Thank you for your help in this matter.

It appears that I have duplicated your memorial for Hector Swope in the Baldwin Cemetery/Holt County, Missouri. I have biography on mine if you would like to copy it to your memorial, and then I will delete my entry. Let me know!! Thanks!

James Columbus Tipps
I'm not sure where the middle name 'Columbus' came from when James was a Jr.

124. JAMES CALVIN6 TIPPS (MICHAEL5, BARBARA4 AWALT, MICHAEL ABRAHAM3, JOHANNES2, LUDWIG1) was born Aug 06, 1839, and died Jan 04, 1932 in Tullahoma, Tn.. He married MARY D. STOVALL Sep 2, 1858. She was born Aug 25, 1840, and died Feb 29, 1888.

The 1870 census taken in CD 6, Franklin Co., Tn. Dechard P. O., p. 6, on 10 Aug. has James C.-30, wife: Mary-29 ($700/500), children: James, Jr.-11, Jasper N.-9, John C. A.-6, Martha-5, Robert-2, Jessee-1, son.
