Jim,



I am in Phoenix, AZ. I just recently (this week) discovered findagrave.com. What a great resource. I hope to soon be uploading grave photos and small bios of many ancestors in hopes other long lost cousins of mine can share in some of the info I have. I've recently inherited boxes of unorganized photos, life histories and other geneology info. As the only remaining one in my family strongly interested in family history (I am 37, my grandparents were into it but have now passed away) I am grateful to have this info fall into my hands and hope to do all I can to share the wealth of info. I can definitely see findagrave.com being one of the places to make such info easily accessible and findable.

From Denis Jones,
John Thomas Jones was born at Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan, Wales.
He died in Winter Quarters Mine #4, Carbon County, Utah.




As for photos of John T Jones, I will do some searching but I don't think I have one. I will also look for any bio info. For the next best thing, last night I discovered this photo http://contentdm.byu.edu/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/GEA&CISOPTR=5789&CISOBOX=1&REC=9 online of his widow and 7 children on the day of his funeral. The 6 year-old in front is my great grandfather George Noble Jones.

(I received this from Ryan; please copy and paste the link to the photo - history comes to life).
