Generation No. 1
1. Thomas Edwin Jones, born August 02, 1891 in Goldthwaight, TX; died
November 04, 1949 in The VA Hospital in Long Beach, California. He was
the son of 2. Abner H. Jones and 3. Mary Ann Hubble. He married Lola
May Browning July 20, 1921 in Cleora, Delaware County, OK. She was
born June 21, 1898 in Madge (was Elk Springs) MO, and died July 1994
in Riverside, CA. She was the daughter of Albert Curtis Browning and
Ora Elizabeth Johnson.
Notes for Thomas Edwin Jones: Tom Jones was from Texas and never let
you forget it. He loved to tell me that I was born on Texas
He was a skilled carpenter and draftsman. He was also a wonderful
farmer. Everything that he planted came up and produced such delicious
fruit. He really knew what to do to raise juicy and sweet watermelon.
And he always had cantelope and taught me how to tell when one was
He loved animals and raised goats and chickens. I remember when he
even was going to raise rabbits ... my mother didn't go for that so
that didn't last long.
I remember when some baby goats were born and he brought them into the
kitchen to be warm and we fed the babies by stuffing their little
faces into a pan of warm milk. They soon got the hang of it.
He died when I was nine and I don't remember a lot about him. Just
little wisps of memory.

Notes for Lola May Browning: This note by Alice. "People that met and
knew Lola Browning Jones would say that she was one of the most
unforgettable characters they had ever met. She was the kind of person
that thought that she could accomplish most anything that she set out
to do. She went to Normal Teachers School at Tallaquah, Okla. after
completing high school. She returned to her home and taught some of
her brothers and sisters. Being the eldest of ten children she was
considered by her younger brothers and sisters as a "second mother".
As a young girl she was really very pretty with large brown eyes and
long auburn hair. She was a person of high principle and duty. When
her father was very nearly about to lose his farm to his brother
Arthur because he did not have the money to make the payment, Lola
turned over the money to him that she had earned from teaching school.
He promised her that she would be paid back or that when he died she
would inherit her share. This did not happen and she was very
disapointed about it. As the eldest she caught the hard parental
training that her young father dished out. She had to start helping
him at a very early age. He was not well, and expected his children to
work and to work hard. She felt that he was too hard and very unfair.
She tried to be always a "good girl" so that she would not be on the
receiving end of his anger. When she was in her eighties she told me a
story of when she was about 16 years old. This was what she told me in
reply to my question; "What do you remember about your father?"
"One day some young people came by to visit and we took a walk. Along
the way there were some apples that really looked good and we wished
that some had fallen on the ground so that we would be free to pick
them up and not feel we had stolen them. When we returned my dad asked
what we had done and seen. One of the boys said that we had seen some
apples and prayed that they would fall down for us. My father took off
his belt and started beating me on the legs right in front of these
friends and was yelling ... "I'll teach you to pray for the apples to
"When we arrived back home I went inside where my mother was resting
on her bed. She had given birth to yet another child. She turned her
head to the wall with sadness." This is the memory that my mother came
up with about her father when she was well into her eighties!!
When the World War I started, Lola was like most young women wanting
to do her part. It was a popular thing to get the name of a service
man and write to him. She had a friend from the area that she liked a
lot and they did write to each other. His name was Kelso. But, she
said later that she liked him more than he liked her. She began
writing to Thomas Jones and they wrote for sometime. He fell in love
with her through her letters and I think she fell in love with love.
They decided to get married and he came to Oklahoma to marry her. Her
father did not approve at all and did not go to the wedding service.
Mother thought that he knew he was going to lose the "goose with the
golden egg" and would miss the money that she turned over to him.
Perhaps he saw in Tom a man that would not support his daughter in a
prosperous way ... and in that he was right.
They lived in Sinton, Texas. Tom worked for the railroad as a clerk.
He had been a clerk while stationed in France during the War. I know
very little of their life during that time ... she did not speak of it
When my brother Charles was about 3 years old they moved to Calif.
Daddy had a job as caretaker of a chicken ranch in El Cajon, Calif.
They had made the journey by touring car with a friend that owned the
car. They camped out along the way. Over the desert they drove on the
famous wooden road that had been laid out on top of the sand.
At some point her father-in-law died and her mother-in-law, Mary
Hubble Jones came to live with them. This was not easy for her. Mary
Jones was a person that thought she should be catered to by her
daughter-in-law. There was a clash of two very strong personalities.
Mary lived with her for 18 years until her death in 1942 in Escondido,
At some point she began to do home nursing care. I don't know for whom
or how long except for the pioneer family in San Pasqual Valley named
Judsen and before and after I was born in 1940 she worked for Alice
Gilbert in her board and care in Escondido, Calif.
Robert was born in San Diego, Ca. and I was born 7 years later in
Escondido, Ca. When I was small and the war was on, she worked at Rohr
Aircraft in San Diego and made good money for the times. She would
have to get up very early when it was still dark to make the journey
to San Diego. The cars had to be driven without lights and the road
was in some places very dangerous. After the war the government had so
many men that were coming home from over seas and they took the jobs
that the women had been doing away from them ... sent them home and
gave those jobs to the returning men. "Rosie the Rivertor" was no
longer needed and Mother was out of her very well paying job.
My brother Charles was killed in 1945 just so close to the ending of
the war and it really took the heart out of her. He was her special
child, the one that never caused her any trouble. The family had
planned to move to La Sierra where Charles could go to college and
they went ahead with their plans to move after he was killed.
Mother went to work at Riverside County Hospital as a nurses aide.
Later she studied and took her test and became a LPN. She worked
during the polio epidemic in the 1940's. She gave many a hot pack and
had patients that were in the iron lung. One of her patients was a
young man that later went into politics in Calif. and years later
introduced mother at the Calif. State Assembly. He thought very highly
of her. She had been telling the children Bible stories and this got
her into trouble with her supervisor ... they removed her from the
polio floor where she was so popular and put her on the gereatric
ward. It was very hard on her at the time.
My father in the mean-time had found a piece of property that he fell
in love with in the Arlington area about two miles out of town. They
were able to buy the place because of the money that had come from the
government from the death of my brother Charles.
They started to build again. Mother made all the cement blocks that
went into the house. Daddy had had some forms made and she mixed the
cement with a hoe and made those blocks. They were stacked up in the
sun to dry. Daddy would lay the block and in the spring he would get
the itch to farm. The house would not get any attention and it nearly
drove Mother crazy.
We lived in what was to be the garage. Later, Mother turned it into an
apartment that she rented. She did the work herself and it was
remarkable what she was able to do.
We did not have any water or electric when we first moved to the
Lincoln Street place. Daddy borrowed some tents from the Adventist
Conference Office and that is how we lived for a time until he got
the roof on. He had the well drilled in the corner of the place at the
opposite side from the house and it was ten acres catty-corner to the
house. He made a sled that he set barrels on and he would take them
across the field and fill them with water and bring them back to the
house for our drinking, washing, and cooking needs. We did not have a
bathroom. We had an outhouse. We did not have a bath tub, but a wash
tub. We must have been the smelliest people around. Bathing was on
Fridays. When we drank water it was from a ladle that we all drank
When Mother washed clothes it was a very tedious job. First she would
have to dip and pour the water from the barrels into a large tub that
she would build a fire under. Then whe would dip and pour the water
from that tub into the ringer washing machine. Of course she would do
the whites first and then progress to the overalls that my dad wore.
She would have to pin the clothes to the clothes line and then when
dry, they would have to be gathered and folded. A lot of work!
She cooked on what would be a camp stove. It was kerosene with burners
and a little kerosene bottle. I don't remember an oven at all.
Besides that work, she had goats and chickens and she worked in the
garden as well. She must have been bone tired all the time. She did
not drive, my father did not think a woman or at least mother needed
to drive. So of course he had to take her every place that she went.
He did not work for anyone after he moved to La Sierra and she did.
He took her to work at the hospital and picked her up. She said that
she turned over her paycheck to him as well ... and he was not a good
money manager. She was far more capable.
My dad died in November 1949. He got sick on a Sunday night. I
remember that she had fixed him a meal that he loved ... bisquites and
white gravey. He got indigestion and they got Dr. Lansing to come and
look at him. They sent him to the VA hospital in Long Beach and on
Friday mother went down to see him. He died before she could see or
talk to him. He died of a blood clot, something that would be easy to
take care of in this day and age.
After he died, Mother seemed to be energized. She learned to drive a
car ... not very well, but she drove up into her eighties. I am sure
she survived and others too because of her guardian angel. She was
really a terrible driver. She learned out on her ten acres. Learning
to brake seemed to be the hardest thing for her to do.
She set about the business of finishing her house. The church came out
and put the roof on. Different men from the church came to do the work
of the putting in the cabinets. We had a "working bee" one Sunday and
her family came, Uncles Frank and Paul with their wives and Aunts Bee
and Peggy and her son Bob Double and his wife, Doris and their two
babies, Susie and Bobbie, and his sister Betty and Bill, her husband.
They came to put in the drywall boards. Bob Double finished the entire
job in one day. Everyone wanted to see Mother have her house at last.
Soon the house was plastered inside and Bob and Mother laid the
hardwood floors and they dug a ditch across the property and laid a
pipe so that we could at last have water. They dug the hole for the
septic tank and we had an indoor bathroom with a real bathtub. I was
so happy and excited to be able to take a real bath in a real bath
The house was never really finished, and the outside was never
stuccoed, but it seemed like a palace. The church gave mother a party,
a house warming and gave her a chair and a fireplace screen. I think
Mother was happy during that time. She was being courted by a
wonderful man, Cecil Jennings that had been her friend down in
Escondido and had moved to La Sierra first. His wife had run off with
the hired man and it really looked like he and Mother would marry. I
think that he loved her very much ... But the hired man deserted Mrs.
Jennings and she came back begging him to take her back ... His
children convinced him to do so, and it really hurt Mother. I am sure
that he never had a happy day in his life after that and Mother never
looked at another man as a potential husband again. She was through
with men forever.
Mother always had a wonderful garden. She had grapes, fruit trees,
peach, and plum and persimmons. She had a beautiful rose garden and
had iris lining her drive way. She raised corn every year and tomatos.
Her corn was the best and she learned to just cook it "3 min. and no
more". She would can corn every year and it was a hot and tedious job
and one that I hated. But when company would come to eat, she would
bring up a jar of her canned corn from the basement and would receive
some wonderful compliments. She made wonderful jams and jellies. Her
boysenberry jam was the best, and my girl friends would love to toast
her home made bread and pile the jam on as thick as they could get it.
She always allowed me to have girl friends stay over and sometimes we
would have a house full. She seemed to love the laughter and noise
that we would cause. Mother was a person that was full of knowledge.
She knew how to treat a sore throat with Vics and flannel or wool
wrapped around the throat. She knew the names of wild flowers. She
knew how to do things that other women would never dreamed of even
trying to do. She loved to make quilts and seemed to making them all
the time. She would make them and give them away to needy people. She
had made some quilts in her thirties that were really beautiful and
she went through a time when she made rag rugs. She had a cement
floor in a couple of homes and she wanted to make the best of the
situation and covered the floor with her rag rugs for beauty and
She was very thrifty and could make her money go further than any
person I have ever known. When Daddy died, she went to a man, Neely
Sims and asked if she could borrow some money from him to finish her
house. He loaned it to her and she very faithfully paid him back every
month until the debt was paid off.
Mother was a person that even when she was very poor would do what she
could for the needy ... not knowing that she was one of the needy
herself. When I was divorced with two babies, Mother decided that she
would help raise those girls ... I actually think that she decided
that she would not just help. ... but that she WOULD raise those
girls. She was determined to do it right and felt that I was incapable
of making a go of it, and at that time, she was right. She took care
of my little girls at a time when I needed the help and for that I
will be eternaly grateful. They were a spark for her too. She loved
them with all her heart and it kept her young in many ways doing the
things that would interest little girls.
Mother was not afraid of heights like "normal" people. She thought
nothing of climbing a tree or getting up on the roof of the house to
work on it. The first time Obby met her she was on top of her roof
fixing it. She was in her seventies then. When the girls were older
and she began to feel she was not needed any longer, she decided to
move to Oklahoma and be near Bob and Marilyn. She was eighty years old
and she should never have done such a drastic move. She ended up
living with me half of the year and then when spring would come, she
would go back to make her garden. She was too isolated after being
close to friends that would visit. She became more and more deaf and
that isolated her too from social situations. She never got the hang
of wearing her hearing aids and she became more and more closed off.
She finally decided that the experiment in Okla. was a bust and bought
a mobile home in Corona, Calif. There she lived until she could no
longer take care of herself.
She was truly a remarkable woman ... I have not touched on so many
things ... She was the Sabbath School Secretary for several years
at Arlington Seventh Day Church and took her job very seriously. She
gave wonderful presentations that people long remembered her for. She
had many friends that admired and respected her. I have only met one
person that did not like her and that was her daughter-in-law.
All of her brothers and sisters admired her and her nephews and nieces
as well. Her mother said that she never caused her a moments trouble.
They had a very special relationship even though they did not see each
other very many times after Mother got married.
My mother, Lola May Browning Jones was a very special lady."

Notes for Mary Ann Hubble: From the Southern Standard: "On Wed. night
at 7 o'clock, Prof. A.H. Jones of the McMinnville Normal was married
to Miss Mary Hubble, at the residance of the bride's brother, Mr. T.J.
Hubble in this place: Elder H.L. Walling officiating."
Mary Ann Hubble lived with my mother and father (Thomas Edwin Jones &
Lola May Browning) for the last 18 years of her life. I, (Alice) was
two years old when she died ... and I remember going to the funeral
and having to sit in the old black Pontiac. I can not conjure up a
picture of her, but I remember her presence sitting in a room in a
chair. In that room was a old Victrola and the wind up spring had been
broken, so to play it one had to spin the record with a finger.
She used a cane all her life. When she was a very young child, she had
fallen into or stepped into a lye pit or fire where soap was being
made, and it had damaged her foot to the extent that one leg was
shorter than the other.
My poor mother had to live with a mother-in-law that, according to
her, was not so nice, and very bossy, and demanding. Mother told me
that Grandma Jones' family had owned slaves and that grandma had
thought mother was her slave. Mary's grandfather, James Jackson
Darnell and most of his family had indeed owned slaves.
Cyrus Hubble was a surveyor in Pike Co., Ark. when Mary Ann was born.
On the census for 1860 there are no slaves listed and I doubt that
Cyrus owned slaves. The family's sentiments seemed to be with the
North and not the South. Both of her brothers were in the Union Army.
In 1880 she was living in Tocodale, Coffee Co., Tenn. with her
mother's brother, James Jackson Darnell, Jr. She was 24 years old. My
brother, Robert told me that she would stick out her cane and trip
him. She would also hook onto him to bring him up close to her. He
said that his memories of her are that she was rather mean.
From the newspaper in Escondido, California: "Mrs. Mary Hubble Jones,
87, resident of California for fifteen years and of Escondido for
eight and a half years, passed away at the home of her son, Thomas
Edwin Jones, 1115 West Thirteenth Ave., early Sunday evening after a
long illness which had confined her to her bed for a year. Mrs. Jones
was born in Pike County, Arkansas, on March 5, 1855, and was a member
of the Seventh Day Adventist church. She was preceded in death by her
husband, Abner H. Jones, seventeen years ago. Only survivors of the
deceased are her son, Thomas Edwin Jones, and some grandchildren.
Services will be held Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock at the Palm
Mortuary with Elder Parsons of Vista conducting the consoling rites.
Interment will be held at Oak Hill Memorial Park.
A Note by Alice: One day in the spring of 1992 I visited my
grandmother's grave site at Oak Hill. The marker is broken and the
grave site is in a run down condition. I don't remember visiting her
grave at any other time.
June 1993 ... On my trip to Tennessee I went to the library in
McMinnville, Warren Co., TN. I found a short notice in the newspaper
Oct. 1, 1885 that Professor Abner Jones had married Mary Ann Hubble
in the home of her brother T.J. Hubble. The ceremony was preformed by
Hugh Lawson Walling. He was the uncle of T.J.'s wife Annie Walling.
Mary Ann was getting a ready made family, because Abner had a child
about 5 years old whose name was Dwight. Abner went from Hillsboro,
Tenn. to Texas right after the Civil War and there he married a girl
named Louise. She did not live long after their son was born and
perhaps even died in child birth. So he returned to Tennessee so that
his mother and father could take care of his young son.

Notes for Eightha Darnell: Note From Alison ... In the beginning of my
search I knew nothing about this great grandmother except the name
Eighthy ... and my mother told me that she was the eighth daughter
born in her family. On the page of the Bible that my dad had recorded
the names of his family ... her husband was written in as Silas
Hubble. When I searched the census records, I soon found that there is
not a Silas Hubble but a Cyrus. Easy enough mistake considering a
I found my Cyrus Hubble with his wife Eightha and their children
including my grandmother Mary Ann ... I was thrilled but finding
Eightha's last name didn't look promising. One day at Huntington
Beach Library I discovered a book on the Hubbell Hubble family. There
was a paragraph on Cyrus and Eighthia and their children. It was
mentioned that she was the eighth daughter of James Jackson Darnell.
There it was ... a name, a link in the chain and I was very excited.
From there I found that there was a family history of the Darnells,
which I bought. The Darnall, Darnell Family by Avlyn Dodd Conley. I
sent Ms. Conley an update on Cyrus and Eighthia's decendents which
will be published if there is ever an updated book published.
Mother had told me that my grandmother had come from a slave owning
family. I am reasonably sure that Cyrus and Eighthy did not own
slaves, but her grandfather James Darnell certainly did.
Eighthia was listed on one census as Alcy ... I am going to assume for
now that that was her middle name. James Darnell and his wife Patsy
Darnell were cousins ... they had 15 children in 28-30 years.
Mary Ann was born in 1855 in Pike Co. Ark. where Cyrus worked as a
surveyor. He died 10/22/1864. Eighthia lived on another 13 years but
I have not found where.
On the 1880 Census of Coffee Co., TN. James Darnell (1818-1892)
Eighthia's older brother is listed with Mary Hubble age 24 living in

Marriage Notes for Cyrus Hubble and Eightha Darnell: Cyrus and Eightha
were members of the Church of Christ. The first Sunday of December
1854 they presented their letters for admission and were received
in full fellowship by letter into the Antioch Church of Christ in
Delight, Arkansas. A few months later in April 1, 1855 Cyrus was
chosen deacon and on May 6th he was ordained deacon. In Feb of 1858
Alexander Campbell Hubble was baptized and accepted into membership.
The family was still living there in 1874 ... Thomas Hubble preached
on August 1 and on August 30 and several people requested membership
from his efforts. There is then no mention of any of the Hubbles in
the church records from that time on.
Thomas was married in 1876 in Tennessee and his mother died one year
later. Hamilton was the first to marry and he married in 1874 in Boyle

Ohio. Notes for Alexander Campbell Hubble: From the
book History of The Hubbell Family - 1881, pg. 25.
"Alexander Campbell Hubbell, of Lexington, Fayette
county, Kentucky, son of Cyrus Hubbell & Eightha
Darnell, was born in Warren County Tennessee, January
12th, 1844. At the age of nine years he had the
mumps, which left him a cripple for life, and so
incapacitated him for an active career, that he
became a teacher. In 1863-4, he was a clerk in the
Quartermaster's Department, United States Army, in
Arkansas, and after the war resumed his profession of
teaching. In 1867, he became a student in the
Kentucky University, in Lexington, and pursued his
studies for three sessions. In 1869 he went to
Cincinnati, Ohio, to have a contrivance made that
would enable him to walk without a crutch, and while
there was persuaded to have his leg amputated that
he might wear a false one, he submitted to the
operation, and died from its effects on February
10th, 1869. He is buried in the Lexington Cemetery,

Thomas Jefferson Hubble: Note from Alison: There is
a picture of Tom Hubble in my mother's photo album.
There is pictured a large box shaped trunk with rope
or twin very neatly tied around it, and a nice
looking older man standing beside it with his hand
resting on the top ... (it is standing on it's end).
He looks to be later sixties or perhaps about 70
years old. He has thin white hair, clean shaven and
is wearing a dress shirt and tie, dress pants held
by suspenders and has very shiny shoes on. He doesn't
appear to be very tall. It looks like he is packed
and ready to leave ... but not without a picture. My
mother has written on the bottom of the picture ...
Uncle Tom Hubble. I am guessing that the picture was
taken in Texas. Newspaper notice of Thomas' death in
the library in McMinnville, TN. His body was sent by
train from Athens, Georgia to McMinnville for the
burial beside his wife. He is listed as a merchant.

Notes for James Jackson Darnell: From the Darnall Darnell Family by
Avlyn Dodd Conley: James Jackson Darnell was born sometime during the
period of 1775 to 1785 in NC. The legend in this family is that five
brothers, migrating west, became separated at Chattanooga, TN. James
did not proceed far beyond Chattanooga, as his son Young Darnell was
born in Franklin Co. TN, the first county west from there.
James served with the Tennessee Volunteers in The Seminole War.
He owned a plantation of 200 acres in Winchester, Franklin Co., TN.
that he bought it for $2500.00 on Dec. 15, 1818.
On 18 September 1827, James J. Darnell made deed of gift to his
daughter: "For the love and affection I have and bear unto my
daughter, Elizabeth Hines and for the further consideration of one
dollar to me in hand, paid by Isaac T. Hines, my son-in-law, the
receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged ... I have given, granted and
conveyed, and by these presents, do give, grant and convey to the said
Isaac T. Hines a negro girl, Julia, four years old, of light
complection, of which said negro girl I have already given the said
Isaac T.Hines full and absolute possession, and I, the said James
Darnell do warrant the title of the said negro girl Julia, to the said
Isaac T. Hines, his heirs and to their only proper use and behoof, in
testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed my
seal this 30th day of March, A.D. 1825. /S/ James J. Darnell.

James Anderson, Graves County, was born May 10, 1839, in Coffee
County, TN., and is the fifth of fifteen children born to John W. and
Sarah (Darnell) Anderson, natives of Tennessee and of Irish and German
descent. Peter and Sina Anderson and James and Elizabeth Darnell were
the names of subject's grandparents. His father was a soldier in the
Mexican war and was also in the Confederate Army; was a teacher from
the age of eighteen until forty-four; was elected clerk of the county
court of Coffee County, TN. before he returned from the Mexican war,
and also was engaged in surveying for a land company. James Anderson
was reared at Manchester, TN., and until thirteen years old, and was
taken to the country; in 1862 he removed to Paris, Ill., remained
there seven years blacksmithing and in 1869 returned to middle
Tennessee, where he farmed four years; then for nearly five years he
farmed in Gibson County, and in 1877 came to his present place, where
he now owns ninety-two acres of well cultivated land.
In August, 1858, he married Sarah J. Waggoner, a native of Knox
County, TN., and daughter of John and Rebecca (Nelson) Waggoner. His
union has been blessed with twelve children, viz.: Mary E. (deceased),
Florence, John W., Ada, James, Jacob H., Sarah R., Maggie, Mattie,
Theodocia, Lonzo and Roscoe, who have received a good education in
preference to anything else. Mrs. Anderson is a member of the
Methodist Episcopal Church.

If I come across anything about James Jackson Darnell I will send to
you. You have given me great info on James Anderson which I will pass
to another cousin who is also descended from Nathaniel.
Thanks so much for all. Try Jess Lewis. If he's buried in Coffee,
he'll find him for you. He has an extensive data base. In my great
grandfathers' obit (Luther Anderson) it says he is buried in Hillsboro
(Coffee County) but on a visit there I couldn't find his grave. Jess
Lewis looked for me and he couldn't either. I don't where they put his
body. Unusual to say the least as this was in 1945.

What a delight to learn of ones Ancestors. Where they came from and what
work they were involved in. Wondering what pushed them to leave the
familiar and move to the unknown. How brave they were and I always hope
that some of those "brave" genes have continued on in me. My genetic pool
is full of Anglo Saxons and Celts. In America they were mostly farmers,
sometimes soldiers, homemakers, and often school teachers. I hope you find
someone that you have been looking for. Please let me know if I can help
you ... often I can't, but I will try. Alison.
