Hi
I sent you a private message here on Rootschat today.

You can find it by checking the My Messages tab and inbox. If you respond by brief message there, so I know you can access it, I will be happy to give you my email in a reply message.

just to say you use to need to post three or four messages before you could send a PM so as Stoker only has two posts at the moment it may not be able to reply to your PM by a PM just yet
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

Ah, that would explain why I cannot reply.  I almost never use this site, so don't really know how it works.  Suggest you try for Michael Rhodes (Sutherland Rhodes Limited) on LinkedIn.  That way I will be able to send some large picture files.
Best Regards,
Michael

Hi there. From my family history I believe that Archimedes is my great great great grandfather (his son Charles Henry Jones went on to have Henry Montague Jones who was my great grandfather, and his daughter Mary Pamela Jones was my grandmother, who passed away four years ago).

Do you have any further info on Archimedes Jones, particularly his life before coming to the UK (did he inherit the plantation after his fathers death/ what happened to Mary) and how he went from a position at the Sailors Home to produce what what become quite wealthy offspring who were global merchants (my great great grandmother who was married to his son Charles was from an affluent family and I have a photo of her aged 80 travelling to Panama!). Iím happy to provide as much onward info as possible, Iím on ancestry.co.uk and my records are public - my name is Cherry Jones.

Many thanks
Cherry
