Re: [OH] JONES family Greenfield, OH
In Response To: [OH] JONES family Greenfield, OH ()
"Only info I have is that she was born in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio between 1845 and 1855. Nancy JONES ROBINSON was the informant on her daughter Florence's death certificate and stated she was from Greenfield, OH. An older relative who is still alive and in his 90s lived with her daughter, my 2nd great grandmother, Florence ROBINSON WHITFIELD. He told me that family lore was that Nancy's parents were free people of color and that she may have been descendant of run away slaves who settled in the Highland County, Ohio area. Nancy's surname upon her death was BAKER. James ROBINSON died in 1910 and she re-married after his death. She died in 1919. Any information about her or just about Greenfield, Ohio and its free people of color in the 19th century, prior to the civil war would be appreciated."
Could this be Florence's birth record?
