This map of Jefferson County, Tennessee was originally created in 1836, and reproduced by Billie McNamara in 1995 (via TNGenWeb). This is a great map to get a sense of where the Jones family lived in the county. Robert Jones Sr's father, Thomas Jones, purchased land on an island in the middle of the French Broad River on the border with Cocke County. The island was across from Taylor's Bend (named for Parmenus Taylor). I'll have more on Thomas Jones next week.
