Rebecca Jones's move to Arkansas

In Reply to: 1854 document for Jones land in Pontotoc Co., MS by Bob Lamb of 2301

Bob, You ask very good questions. Of course, we can only speculate about why Rebecca Box Jones moved from Pontotoc Co. MS to Pike Co. AR but there is documentation to cover part of the question.

Rebecca's son, Robert was in Clark Co. AR in 1850 and in 1860, Rebecca's son, Willis, bought land from the government in Pike Co. which is adjacent to Clark Co.
