Upon These Steps

Award Winning Historical Novel By David C. Reavis


Samuel Jones Reavis

Posted by Sue on December 14, 2012 at 9:55 AM

Hi David - I am reading your book and have found it very interesting. I appreciate seeing the Reavis's in their historical perspective, this is making history very real to me. There are three characters who have Jones as their middle name, Samuel Jones Reavis, Hugh Jones Reavis and Samuel Jones Parham. Do you know where the Jones came from? I have Enoch Jones Reavis and the Jones is an important identifier as he is frequently confused with his uncle Enooch Ashby Reavis.I appreciate the pictures of the stone steps, I would never have made it up without a hand rail. Thank you for writing this ery interesting novel. Sue

Only thing for certain is that "Jones" originates from the parents of Nancy Jones (born 1736) who married Samuel Jones in Northampton County, NC. Have not ascertained for certain who her parents were. Two good possibilities of Jones living in NH at the right time: Lewis Jones or Robert Jones (who married Mary Jordan 1756). Lewis Jones is most likely, but I have not recorded on Ancestry, as there is no proof. Many others on Ancestry incorrectly report that Charles Jones was her father, which I refute.
