Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.
The numbering of these posts had been modified to signify that I am posting items from my archival book three, a three precedes the item number.
There is no identification on this carte-de-visite except the name of the photographer.
Belle’s parents were Miranda Jones and Ruscum Lamunion. The Lamunion/Lemunion/Lemunyon family came to Michigan from New York as did the Jones family. The earliest record I have found for the Ruscum Lamunion family in Michigan is the 1870 census of Dorr Township, Allegan County. The latest New York record is the 1965 census of Manchester, Ontario County. The last New York record I have for Robert Jones, Miranda’s father is the 1860 census of MacEdon, Wayne County, New York. MacEdon is just west of Palmyra.
In my day dreams, I imagine that this is a photo of Belle’s mother, Miranda Jones Lamunion, in my nightmares, I don’t know who the nice lady is.
If you have a connection to the family of Robert Jones, or any of his children, please review your photographs and check for a matching one. Of course, in my day dreams your photo is marked with the name of the subject.
More on the Jones Family:
Robert Jones, b about 1796 in Massachusetts, married Savilla. He may have had a previous wife. I know of these children of Robert, the 26 years from the first know child to the last know child makes a second wife seem likely. There are probably more children, also.
Miranda/Maranda, female b. 26 January 1821, NY
Hezekiah, male, b about 1825, NY
Robert V. Jones, male, b May 1836, NY
Benjamin F. Jones, male, b about 1839, NY
