Lewis Jones is listed on the U. S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules with a death date of May, 1880 in Miami County, Kansas. He is recorded as age 46 and the cause of his death is listed as "kick of a horse."

Lewis Jones is recorded in the Mound Township, Lykins County, Kansas Territory Census in 1860. He was with his wife, Mary, and his son Robert, age 4, b. N. C., and his daughter Martha, age 1, born in the Kansas Territory. (Lykins County, Kansas Territory was renamed Miami County, in Kansas, in honor of the Miami Indians.)

Lewis is recorded next to Simon and Millicent Jones, both age 49 and both born in North Carolina. Ancestry family information shows them to be Lewis' parents. Albert, Thomas, Eleanor, Mary, Matilda, Milton, & William were with Simon & Millicent in 1860.

Lewis & Mary are recorded as the parents of Robert C., Martha E., Leander D., John E., S. E., Flora E., Fanny E., Albert Ernest, & Rosa M. in Kansas census reports, 1860 - 1880.

It is not certain that Lewis is buried in this cemetery with his wife, Mary, and his oldest son; but he is recorded as having died in Miami County, Kansas in May of 1880. Ancestry family information records Lewis' wife as Mary C. Dunbar, born in North Carolina.
