Re: FPOC's Longtown, OH Settlement

Carol,

============================================================
Q: I just discovered a possible connection to Longtown. The 1920 census lists a William F. Jones (born around 1868)whowas a minister in Paulding County, Ohio. By the 1930 census, he was living in Liberty Township, Darke County and his occupation is listed as a farmer. His wife was Grace Jones; their children were William F., Jr.(1916), Iva (1919), and Catherine/Katherine)(1928). William Sr. was my grandmother's first cousin.
============================================================

R: William Frederick JONES, son of Thomas & Martha MAXWELL JONES, was married to Grace Elizabeth BASS, daughter of Jacob & Catherine BURDEN BASS. They had three children; William Frederick JONES Jr., a local historian of the settlement; Iva JONES SAWYER, and Catherine JONES MCCALL. William F. JONES Jr. lived in a log cabin house (sided) in the settlement next to the CLEMENS Cemetery.

============================================================
Q: Were there other African-American settlements in Liberty Township besides Longtown?
============================================================

R: No.

============================================================
Q: Also, as William was also a minister, do you know what churches existed in the Libery Township area around that time period?
============================================================

R: I won't speak for the township but there were four denominations in the Greenville Settlement. Baptist, AME, Wesleyan Methodist and early on, Methodist. The Baptist never had a building the others did with one still standing and in use. William Frederick JONES was a pastor of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in the Settlement (after several mergers the Wesleyan Methodist denomination is now Bethel Wesleyan, and the one in the Settlement called Bethel Long Wesleyan).

============
Q: A friend of mine is also interested in Darke County, as her grandmother was a Chavis and grew up in the area. I'm trying to get her to attend some meetings of AAGGMV
============

R: I am very interested in this person and her family. Could you be more specific as to who her grandmother was? The CHAVIS family was a surname/family in the Greenville Settlement and in just about all the settlements. They were teachers, ministers, and activists.
