    The 1860 census indicates that Sarah and her husband W Jones marriedabout 1854.  After his death, Sarah Jones married widower JacobPentecost sometime before 1870.  The youngest Jones child was bornabout 1862, so we can estimate that Mr Jones lived till about thattime at least.

    I found a marriage record in Drew County that appears to be thecorretone.  Thsi reports that Sarah's maiden name was Evans, and herhusband's name was William L Jones.

    There are two Jones children now in the household of Jacob and SarahPentecost.  Henry B matches H B.  Ozella apears to be a differentchild from M E, who is identified as Mary in some genealoiges.  Itlooks like M E died before the 1870 census.  Ozella was born about1862.  As of November 2012, I have not determined the maiden name ofeither 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.
