I descend from Willie Jones by way of his daughter Anna Maria Jones. None of his son’s had children so the Jones name did not carry on. Nor did it for his brother Allen Jone

Does anyone know who Joshua Jones' father is since it can not be Wylie. I too am descended from Joshua through Russell Jones.

Joshua Jones is not a son of Wylie Jones. All one has to do is look at their birth dates. Wylie was born in 1740, Joshua was born in 1748.

I thought I traced my jones line back to willie (Wiley) jones through his son Joshua. But I have read several published articles saying all his sons died before coming of age

Wylie Jones is also a relative of mine through the Tanquarys and Jones family of Fredericksburg, Virginia.
