Notes for Green Berry Jones
Rowan Co. birth records, on LDS microfilm #216839, list Greenberry, b. 5 Dec 1859, son of Wm. Jones & Barbary Jones, father born Bourbon Co., mother born Morgan Co.
He was listed in his brother William’s 1942 obituary as surviving, and as “the late Green Jones” in the Jan 1959 obituary of his son Jesse.
His death certificate (Vol. 13, #06181) records Green B. Jones, age 88 years 3 months, born 5 Dec 1861 in Ky, died 5 March 1950 in Morehead, Rowan Co., Ky, occupation farmer, widowed, father William Jones, mother’s maiden name Barbara Myers, cause of death arteroscleratic heart disease, informant Alfred Jones, Morehead, burial in Brown Cemetery.
Notes for Sarah (“Sallie”) M. Sparks
Sallie’s maiden name of Sparks is from the obituaries of her husband and of their son Jesse, and the death certificate of their son Leonard.
Her death date is from Green’s obituary. But the Kentucky Death index lists no Sarah, Sally or Sallie Jones who died in 1941.
Census Notes for Green Berry & Sarah (“Sallie”) M. (Family)
1880 census of Rowan Co., Ky, Pearce precinct, enumerated 1 June, lists on p. 26 as family #203/233:
Greene Jones, 20, laborer; Sarah, 15. All born in Kentucky.
The preceding household is that of Sarah’s parents, Alfred and Isabel Sparks.

(Green's year of birth is inconsistent with Rowan County birth records, and with the 1860 census, where he appears age 6 months in June 1860. This household is next door to his brother David M. Jones.)
