Jones, Samuel (b. 11 MAR 1777, d. 21 APR 1877)
Note: Came to Lincoln Co. from Georgia in 1808. Settled in the
Coldwater area. Had
seven sons and seven daughters altogether (Fayetteville
Observer 8 Aug. 1872)

Note: "Fayetteville (TN) Observer" Thursday April 26, 1877

"An Old Man's Death"

"Mr. Samuel Jones died near Camargo, this county, last Saturday
night, aged 100 years, one month and ten days. he was of an
active temperament and retained a considerable degree his
mental and physical vigor to the last. His habits through life
did not run into excesses, which may account, to some extent,
perhaps, for his great lease of life. He was of a cheerful,
playful disposition and passed his life without jarring or
worry. There is no doubt that he really attained the great age
named. He moved to this county sixty-eight years ago and
settled on the farm where he died. Indians were camped around
him. The kitchen that he then built is there yet."

"Samuel B. Jones' father had a deed that John Quincy Adams
signed. Samuel B. Jones father's name was also Samuel. Samuel
B. Jones was carried in his mother's arms as she rode on a mare
led by her husband Samuel Jones from Georgia to Lincoln Co.,
Tenn. They settled on Coldwater Creek. Samuel built a wigwam
out of cane & they lived in this until he went back to Georgia
& brought back material to build a house. The Indians helped
him to build his first house." as told by B.C. Albright in
1808? at Lincoln County, TN

From the "Fayetteville (TN) Observer" August 8, 1872

"Remarkable Longevity " Samuel Jones and Rachel Brown, natives
of North Carolina, were married in Georgia in 1802, removed to
Lincoln county, Tennessee, in 1808, with three children and
settled on Coldwater creek on the south side of Elk river ten
miles below Fayetteville, and about one half mile from where
they now reside, and have resided ever since coming to this
county.

"They have had fourteen children, seven sons and seven
daughters, of whom two sons and five daughters are now living.

"Samuel Jones is now 96 years old. They have lived together as
man and wife 70 years. The old man frequently walks to
Camargo, three miles from his home and back."

From Loose papers of Samuel and Rachel Jones sent to Jane
Waller 12-14-1995: dated Dec 24, 1903 -
Will Matthews and Cleveland Jones came in from Chattanooga and
went out to Pap's on 24 Dec 1903 at Lincoln County, TN. He "As
I remember being told, our earliest relative came to Lincoln
County Tenn. around 1800. From where he came I never heard.
Definitely, but supposedly from North or South Carolina or
Georgia. The old letter (a copy is enclosed) may show
connections in E. Tennessee or W. North Carolina. I presume
Blountsville, where the letter was posted, is in one of the
above states. The above is in reference to Samuel Jones. The
next in line would be S.B. Jones (Pap is what our Grandfather
William Carroll Jones called him.)"

Several descendants of Samuel and Rachel said it was a family
tradition that Samuel Jones came to America from Skilton,
Ireland, settling first in North Carolina, migrating to Eastern
Georgia, then to Lincoln county.

Mrs. Minnie Byers, descendant of Samuel through a son William,
gave the following information:

"Samuel Jones came from Skileton, Ireland, to North Carolina,
then moved to Georgia where he married Rachel Brown, of whose
people we know nothing."

Mr. John W. Good of Moultrie, Georgia, a grandson of Samuel
Jones, through William, and a brother to Mrs. Byers, in a
letter written May 25, 1957 stated:

"Originally, as I have always understood, the Jones family came
as immigrants to America from Skilton, Ireland. They first
came to North Carolina. Where they stopped there, or how long
they remained I do not know. From there they migrated to some
place or places in Georgia."

Of their arrival in Lincoln county there can be little doubt of
the family legends handed down. I have talked or written to
three descendants of this Samuel, all descended from different
children of Samuel and the outline varies but slightly.

Mr. Good wrote, "From this state (Georgia), they migrated, at
least early in the last century to Lincoln county, Tennessee.
On this journey from Georgia to Tennessee, as it was told me,
the mother of the family swam the Tennessee river - at what
point I do not know - on horseback with the baby in her arms -
quite heroic. She later lived in the 'upstairs' of a log-pen
house 'to keep the wolves off' while the men returned in wagons
to Georgia for their remaining household goods left in that
state."

This story is the same that I heard as a child from my father,
H. Blakely Warren, a great,great, grandson of Samuel Jones. He
was a son of Julia Ann Drennan Warren, daughter of Mary Eliza
Yeager Drennan.
Mary Eliza was the daughter of Sarah Jones, the baby in the
mother's arms of the "heroic river crossing."

Samuel Jones settled back of Camargo in the hilly headwaters of
Coldwater creek and in 1964 some of his descendants were still
living there. In the obituary it is stated in 1877 that the
kitchen he built was still there, and in a letter from Mrs.
Byers in 1957 she wrote, "Where the family of ten childreen
were reared, an old kitchen where the family ate stood on the
grounds for sixty years."

Again to quote from the obituary, "His habits through life did
not run into excesses, which may account to some extent,
perhaps, for his great lease of life. He was of a cheerful,
playful disposition...." Long before I became interested in
family history, I had been told the stories of this "playful
fellow." By word of mouth it has been passed down for over one
hundred years that he would take a candle and taunt his timid
wife, saying that he would catch his hair on fire, just to have
her plead for him to stop. Once he came too close and his hair
was singed. I wonder, too, how playful and cheerful Rachel
thought it was when he became so angry that he would break
every dish in the house, so that she could not serve a meal
until he took a "feed basket" to Camargo and buy more dishes.

In August of 1964, I went to the "old cedars in front of the
old John Moore home, which is above the high bluff near the
Associate Reformed Presbyterian Manse there at Yukon" where Mr.
Good said that Samuel and Rachel Jones are buried. The graves
are unmarked, but it is still known by those in the
neighborhood that the first Jones are buried there. The
location was so peaceful and lovely that if my great, great,
great, grandfather, Samuel Jones did indeed "pass his life
without jarring or worry," his final resting place could not be
more perfect.

Samuel Jones was know for his temper: he oftern teased his
wife by holding a candle to his red hair pretending to burn it.
One day he came too close.
Once he broke every dish in the house and had to walk to the
nearest store to buy more. Ora S. Warren speaks of Samuel
Jones: "I don't think grandaddy Jones was bad- his vices,
liquor and temper-many have more than that- has many
outstanding gr-&gr.grsons etc."
