I found your response and hope we can help each other. I, too, am trying to find my relatives. Let's try to determine if your Jasper is mine. My father - Weldon Henry Sailes' father was Charles Burl Sailes. Charles' father was Jasper Sailes (dob 30 Nov 1860 in Louisville, KY and died 14 Sep 1933 in Noble, AR), whose father was Benjamin Sailes (dob appx 1825 in TN); his mother was Sarah Taylor. They had Jasper, Benjamin, Carrie, Bettie, Nathaniel, and Rhoda. Benjamin was a grocer and Jasper was a farmer. Jasper married Mellissa Elizabeth (1861) aka Elizabeth Ann Pittcock and they had Elbert (1883), Charles, Loren "Lon" Arch (1896), Lena Mae (1898), Mary Louella (1889).
Your Jasper may be a son of Jasper or his son, if he married. I know that Melissa Elizabeth lived in Peach Orchard, AR at the time of her death. She is buried in Richwoods Cemetery in Clay County, AR. I believe that she died after 1935 as Lon died before that.
Check to see if any of this tracks with your families. Since Jasper died in 1933, he may have had another family. Would love to see the photos.
Hope to hear from you soon.
