Re: Priscilla and Sarah Jones of Loudoun VA

April 11, 2006
Hi Denise,

Here's what I have so far on Priscilla/Sarah. I'll begin with Priscilla.

I began with 1880 census of Hempstead Co AR where she is listed with daughter Margaret (Mag, Maggie) Williams & Son-in-Law Jerry. 1870 I have Priscilla at age 49, colored in Leesburg, Loudoun with Sarah,Mulatto,age 73. 1860 census with the following people: Elizabeth Jones -19, Jesse Jones- 17, and Victoria Jones 13. I don't know if these are Priscilla children or relatives.

I didn't find her again under Jones until 1810 census, however; her abt: has been previously listed as 1820 (+/-). My grandmother Helen who is 92 is still living. She indicates that Margaret's father name was (Doc) Simmons. I don't know if (Doc) is a nickname or what. Supposedly he was Caucasian and a Doctor in Hope AR. I haven't verified nor disputed this info. At some point in time Priscilla did migrate to AR.
Regarding Sarah, I have no idea how she fits into the puzzle. I don't know what relationship she is to Priscilla, initially because of the age difference I though perhaps she was Priscilla's mother, however when I discovered a Pricilla Jones on the 1810 census, I left it as a questions mark as to what the relationship is. However, Sarah appears on a number of censuses: 1810,20, (*30), 50,60,70. I asterisk the 1830 because in front of Sarah's given name on this census there are the initials (FR) what's the meaning?

My questions are:
1) Who is Sarah, and what is the relationship to Priscilla,
2) Who is the father of Priscilla's child Margaret, who are the other people listed on Priscilla's 1860 census?
3) Who are Priscilla's parents?
4) Who did Priscilla marry?
5) What was her ethnicity?
6) Where do I search/how?
7) What was the family’s migration?
8)How did she become a Free Woman?

I sent my profile to join the Afrigenas Free People of Color Forum to Valencia late last night. I had a wonderful conversation with her. I'm so excited that you have contacted me. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank-you for your response.
