Spouses's Name: Mary

Mary Jones 28 b. TX parents AL

Here's Harvey's draft registration - lists him with wife and one child:

Name: Harvey Jones
City: Not Stated
County: Grimes
State: Texas
BirthPlace: Texas;United States of America
Birth Date: 18 Oct 1895
Race: African
Roll: 1953404
DraftBoard: 0

I would take a close look at this family from 1900:

Name: Peggie Baylor
Home in 1900: Justice Precinct 5, Grimes, Texas
Age: 47
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1853
BirthPlace: Alabama
Relationship to head-of-house: Head
Race: Black

Samuel Baylor 21
Neadham Baylor 17
Katherine Baylor 9
Simon Baylor 6

They seem to be the logical place to start - and live next door to a Jones family.
