John W. Jones family - Madison County, Indiana

Today I sourced the John W. JONES family in the 1910 census of Lafayette Township, Madison County, Indiana. John was married to my maternal 2nd-great grandaunt, Margaret PIERCE daughter of Edmund G. and Catherine (GROENENDYKE) PIERCE.

John was listed as a 42 year old farmer who could read and write and owned his home free of mortgage. His marriage to Margaret was his second marriage, and they had been married for 7 years. John was listed as being born in Indiana, but the birthplace of his parents was simply given as 'United States'.

Margaret was listed as a 37 year old born in Indiana, with both parents born in Indiana. She was able to read and write, but had no occupation listed. This was her first marriage, and she was the mother of one child who was living.

Also living in the household were : Freda P. Jones, daughter, aged 14 years, born in Indiana and attending school; Layman S. Jones, son, aged 6 years, born in Indiana.
