135 years ago (1883) today, Joseph George Jones was born in Troy, Michigan, the son of Major George Jones and Ellen Augusta Schuyler. On 25 September 1913, he married, Irene Mae Jenks, the daughter of Oliver Torrey Jenks and Evelyn Roselia Seymour. Irene and my grandfather, Lee Goodliff Weaver, were first cousins, once removed. Grandpa and Irene were separated by age by less than a month and were in constant communication in their youth. Going back in this blog to where I posted Grandpa’s entire post card collection, you will find a number of post cards from Irene to Grandpa. Joseph died 19 December 1966 in Pasadena, California. Cousin Irene, born 3 June 1893 in Southfield, Michigan, died 7 November 1977 in Merced, California. Photographs provided by Charlene Olivia Jones Lerch.
