DC on LDS indexed as
Martha Jones, Sixth Civil District, Newport, Cocke County, Tennessee
Feb 2, 1931
No parents listed.
Daisy Jenes informant.
Somehow someone put 1871 as the birth date on her grave information. No early census supports that date but we can't count on the 1900 here because she didn't give info on herself or her kids apparently since it doesn't match anything else in the world.
Martha and W.O. (her nephew) are buried in the Swann Cemetery in Jefferson Co, just below Paralee EDMONDS Jenes.
