Subject: [GAHANCOC] Ambrose Jones/Shada Wright
Date: Thu, 4 Jan 2001 13:50:29 -0500
I am trying to find the parents and possibly other children of my ggg
Grandfather Ambrose Jones and Shada Wright.
AMBROSE JONES was born February 16, 1784 in South Carolina, and died
February 03, 1853 in Woolsey, Pensacola, Escambia Co., Florida. He married
SHADA ANN WRIGHT March 02, 1813 in Hancock County, Georgia.
1830 Hancock County Georgia Census Ambrose Jones is listed.
1 F (under 5)
1 F (10-15)
2 F (30-40)
He is not listed on the 1840 Hancock County, Georgia census.
The next census that I have him listed on is:
1850 US Census Escambia Co. FL, Pensacola, page 122, lines 10-15 lists:
Ambrose Jones age 67 M W occupation gardener born in South Carolina
Shada Ann Jones age 55 F W born in Georgia
L.A. Jones age 19 M W born in Georgia (Lazarus Alpheus)
G. L. Jones age 18 M W born in Georgia (George L.)
A. J. Jones age 15 M W born in Georgia (Andrew J.)
W.A. Jones age 12 M W born in Georgia (William A.)
According to the civil war pension of Lazarus Jones, the family moved to
Florida in approximately 1843. The obit for Lazarus Jones stated that he
was the last surviving child of fourteen, so if the obit was correct I'm
missing ten children. I've bought every book available for Hancock County,
Georgia and have not found any information that will get me past my brick
wall. Any help would be appreciated.
