Hi Carhoglucan

Sorry about not getting back to you sooner.
We haven't been able to discover a link between our Hacketstown/Baltinglass Jones and your Holdenstown Jones though I do have some information on more recent generations.
It's interesting how some names are repeated from our line. Alice Smith interests me. Do you know where she is from. We have a Dorothea Smith married to Sheppard Jones.
I was also told recently that my grandfather used to go drinking with an Alfie Jones from Holdenstown. The house is still there and lived in. 
There is also a Robert Jones buried in Kiltegan cemetery. He died in 1849 aged 49. + children and other.
There is also an Edward Jones and wife 1861.

The Dora I'm looking for is Methodist, does this still fit with your Dorcas?
There are a number of Jones families in the area which will confuse your research so you will need to check all links carefully.
I will need to check my notes for more information.
Regards Charlie
Despite high infant mortality rates and lower life expectancies, not one of your direct ancestors died childless.

Charlie

I have since discovered that my Dorcas married Henry Fennell.  Children William, Annie, Robert, Elizabeth, Sarah, Joseph...Her sister, my gt gt grandmother converted to Catholicism in 1863 so may have been methodist. I don't know if this has any relevance to you.

Regarding Alice Smith. .I'm sorry I have no other information as yet.

I just came across this post. Alfie Jones was my grandfather. I am also researching my Jones ancestry. I have a John Jones married to MaryAnn Caroline Somers she was always known as Caroline. Wondering if there are any links here?

Hi rufygh, Charliej  and shane147 etc
I am new to this website and by chance googled Robert p Jones and came up trumps! I am a descendent of Constance Jones her father was Henry Jones .. His father was Robert p Jones ... His father Sheppard Jones and his father was I think John Jones ... I am very excited to find others with similar lineage and am keen to find out more... I have some documents that you will be interested in... Hope this message finds the right people
Regards
Sally
