  • Notes 
    • Had eleven children.
      [Jones, Roginson; Obituary; Covington Republican; May 14, 1897; page 1 ]

      His parentage is speculative on my part based on dates, and the fact t hat both Richards have a brother Daniel. Also, it is unclear which o f the earlier Richard Jones' wives is the mother of my Richard Canno n Jones - if she is. However, the fact that one of his wives was Mar y Cocke might explain the middle name 'Coke' being assigned to Richar d Cannon's son, Robinson Coke Jones.

      Died a bachelor according to Virginia Historical Magazine; Jones, Rich ard; Biological Notes and Queries is the source.

      Could it be that Mary (Cocke) Ellis Jones died before him and therefor e he was considered a bachelor when he died? If so, it's highly likel y that this Richard Jones is my Richard Cannon Jones, father of Robins on Coke Jones.

      -- MERGED NOTE ------------

      Had eleven children.

      This is the most likely of two possible attachments with brothers name d Daniel due to closer dates. However, he could also be the brother o f Captain Daniel Jones, son of Daniel "Edward" Jones and Mary Sturdiva nt.
