Just come across your message re my great grandfather Robert Jones VC Rorkes Drift Zulu war where you claim to be a descendant of a brother of his who emigrated to Canada.You do not give any information regarding this person.I have researched Robert Jones family extensively during the past 15 years or so and am able to identify what happened to most of his fifteen siblings as also I have trace the famiy line back to the 1600s .Could you send me details and maybe I could help you

Regards Gillian
