Mortality Schedule 1860 for James Jones, Wayne Co., Kentucky

One of the problems in genealogy is maintaining research logs on where we have previously looked. In this manner we try not to retrace our steps and waste our time. An exception to this is electronic research. Periodically we do have to perform a rechecking of our favorite sites for new postings of information. Whatever your favorite research sites are,,, etc., they continually add more to their holdings. Sometimes you get lucky. An example of this is my discovering my 3G Grandfather's entry in the 1860 mortality schedule of the Federal Census. I learned that James Jones died in June 1859 of Typhoid Fever (line 24). The advice to persevere, persevere, persevere holds true.

James Jones, born 1797, in Tennessee or Kentucky, married Margaret Dobbs in Wayne Co., Kentucky, and died 27 June 1859. They had twelve children.
