Good grief  :o  That sounds like a lot of oral history maybe?

It looks like Charles took George with him:

1860 US Census
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MHZ7-5VR

Name: Chs R Jones
Birth: abt 1822 - England
Residence: 1860 - city, Jefferson, Missouri, United States

Name: George Jones
Birth: abt 1848 - Australia
Residence: 1860 - city, Jefferson, Missouri, United States

1870 census

1880 census
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MXNS-G9L

1900 census
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MSS3-FWW (image online)

At least the researcher has an unusual name so it shouldn't be too hard to find her.

When I said he may have been long gone by 1866, I meant maybe to Bathurst, not America  ;D

Thanks Debra, for the info will check out all the census records.  I too thought maybe western NSW but then found this info and so much fitted in with what we already had.

Thanks for all your help at last I feel like I am getting somewhere with Charles now he has been bugging me for so long.

George Richard (son) seems to go missing after 1860 census. Wonder what happened to him, if he was deaf and dumb then maybe he was placed in a home or maybe he had just moved elsewhere by the 1870 census.  Charles seems to have just up and left his family in Australia and gone back to England and married again.  I wonder if he and Margaret got a divorce or if not then his second marriage is not legal and he is actually a bigamist.
