    I don't have many details on Mary Frances.  Her last child, Wince Jones, was born in 1903, and she died in 1904.

    Descendant Jimmy Jones reports to me in email correspondence the names of three children:  Bill (William H), Jim (James) and Helen.  Helen seems to match the child found in some family lists as Mattie.  I have no additional information on a child named Helen.  Wince was also her son, since she died in 1904.

    Mary Frances Criswell died 25 October 1904.  William Thomas Jones married Cornie Cochran in 1906.
