    Jones, Ozella  8 F W At Home b Arkansas [b abt 1862]

    She was apparently previously married to a Jones, as there are twoJones children now in the household of Jacob and Sarah Pentecost.  The1870 census does not record the relationships of the householdmembers, but in the 1880 census we are told that the Jones childrenare stepchildren of Jacob, confirming the previous married name ofSarah E Jones.  As of October 2008, I have not determined the maidenname of either Nancy or Sarah E.

    Jacob and Sarah appear to be in the same location for the 1880 census. Sarah's two Jones children are still in the household.

    Note that stepson William B Jones matches Henry B Jones of the 1870census.  Perhaps this person's name was William Henry or HenryWilliam.  Or the enumerator in 1870 made an error?  It is not clearwho the 6-year-old Pinckney Bradly is.

    I had a helpful note in April 2012 from researcher Ronald Conrad,providing some other details and referring me to the memorial he hadconstructed for Jacob on FInd A Grave.  Along with Civil War records,Ron had discovered Jacob's grave in Desha County, Arkansas, andrepaired the damaged gravestone.

    "If you go to findagrave.com Jacob Pentecost memorial #88770601, wifeNancy mem .#88756338.
