    "Jones and Ann were married 18 Nov 1852 in Murray County, Georgia. Ann died in 1863, presumably while Jones was off to war in the 1st Texas Lancers. His younger brother Ned Connally died 3 May 1863 at Chancellorsville (while Mary Ellen Terry Connally was carrying their daughter, Eddie, born the following September). Then the widower and widow got married in 1867, producing five daughters and a United States senator."

    Jones married the second time in 1867.  The place of marriage is stated as Brazos County, Texas, so gives us an idea that this was also the place where Ann died.

    Jones' second wife was Mary Ellen Terry, whom he married in 1867. Both wives may have been lost in childbirth.
