Thomas Green & family appeared in the 1850 US Census in District 13 of Jefferson County (present day Hamblen County). Mary Catherine appears as 12 years old.
Joseph and Mary had five children:
1. Martha E. Jones, born 13 November 1856, died in Kay County, Oklahoma in 1933
2. Mary Jane Jones, born 16 December 1858
3. Thomas Robert Jones (my 2ndgreat-grandfather), born on 23 March 1860, died on 1 November 1937 in Darlington, Montgomery County, Indiana (Note - Joseph's pension file lists Thomas' birth date as 26 March 1860)
4. Marion Columbus Jones, born 29 April 1862, moved to Oklahoma, then Kansas
5. Nancy Cornelia Jones, born 24 November 1864
(Note - birth dates for the Jones children were listed in Joseph Jones' Civil War pension file, viewed on 31 October 2012 at the National Archives in Washington DC, on a form signed by Joseph Jones to the Department of the Interior on 23 January 1899. At the time, he said all five were living.)
By 1870, Joseph, Mary Catherine and family had moved to Witts Foundry, in District 11, Jefferson County. It is interesting to see the family living next door to Thomas W. Thornhill (Joseph's cousin, nephew of Elizabeth Thornhill Jones), Benjamin Hickey (Mary Catherine's Uncle, brother of Sarah Hickey Green) and Louisa P. Thornhill Hickey (Joseph's cousin).
In 1880, Joseph and Mary Catherine were in Sugar Creek Township, Boone County, Indiana. Their neighbors were William Gilbert Daniel, Sarah Melissa Jones Daniel (Joseph's sister) and their family, and Martin Van Buren Jones (Joseph's other brother) and his family. Another Jones sister, Margaret Caroline Jones Walker, was living nearby in Franklin Township, Montgomery County, Indiana. Caroline's husband, Anderson Walker, appears in Joseph Jones' Civil War pension file.
Joseph and Mary Catherine lived in Boone County for three years before returning to Tennessee. They moved to Maryville, Blount County, Tennessee. Their son Marion Columbus Jones joined them in Maryville for a few years, where he married Eva Watkins. Mary Catherine would likely have spent these years in Maryville with her grandchildren (Marion & Eva's children) Willie and Clarence Jones.
Mary Catherine died on 15 September 1890 in Maryville, Blount County, Tennessee. She was 51 years old. She is buried in the Old Quaker Cemetery.
