The Family of Rev ABRAHAM B JONES and LUCINDA SCOTT of McNairy County Tennessee
In my continuing effort to further document my SCOTT, JONES & BRUTON families of McNairy Co Tennessee, here is my research so far on the collateral line of LUCINDA SCOTT, sister of my gg grandmother, LAVINA SCOTT BRUTON.
LUCINDA SCOTT, the daughter of THOMAS SCOTT Sr & ELIZABETH JONES, was born about 1817 in probably Rutherford Co Tennessee. She married Nov 1, 1838 to Rev ABRAHAM B JONES in McNairy Co Tennessee. He was the son of an unknown JONES & ELIZABETH, maiden name unknown. Rev ABRAHAM B JONES, who was born April 11, 1816 in South Carolina, does not appear to be related to LUCINDA's mother, ELIZABETH JONES, who was the daughter of NICHOLAS JONES & MARTHA "PATSY" MOORE.
In the 1840 census, Rev ABRAHAM B JONES & LUCINDA, a young couple with 1 son age under 5 years, were living next door to THOMAS SCOTT Sr, who appears to be a widowed male age 60-70, with an unmarried female age 30-40 living in the household, with a male age 10-15, and two females under age 10.
Although THOMAS SCOTT Sr migrated to Greene Co Missouri in 1846, and died there in 1849, (several of his children also moved to Missouri at same time) LUCINDA & her husband remained in McNairy Co Tennessee for the rest of their lives.
According to census records, here are the children & grandchildren of Rev ABRAHAM B JONES & LUCINDA SCOTT:
