Jones family gathers


Descendants of Mary (Hughes) Jones and Benjamin Samuel Jones gathered Aug. 1 at the Erwin Cemetery during a family reunion. Benjamin’s parents, David E. Jones and Jane (Davis) Jones, immigrated from Wales to Pennsylvania in 1862. Benjamin was the only one of their eight children to leave the family home and travel west. He met Mary in Illinois, where they were married. They moved to Erwin in 1904 where they raised their family of seven children. Most of them spent their lives in Kingsbury County.
