I recently came across an Internet file identifying the name of my 3 ggrandmother as Mary Selena Hice, married to Thomas Jones. According to this record, she was born about 1810 in Fannin County, Georgia, died in Aug. 1893, and was buried in Rushing Cemetery, Pope County, Arkansas. She and Thomas had at least 9 children:
1) Mary Jane JONES, b. Oct 1835 in TN;
2) Martha Ann JONES, b. in 1838 in TN;
3) James JONES, b. abt 1842 in Walker County, Georgia;
4) Milbra Emeline JONES, b. abt 1845 in Walker Co., GA;
5) Thomas Hice JONES, b. 9 Apr 1846 in Walker Co., GA;
6) Harrison J. JONES, b. 19 Dec 1848 in Columbus, GA;
7) Margaret A. JONES, b. abt 1853 in Walker Co., GA;
8) Mitchell JONES, b. 21 Jan 1857 in Georgia;
9) Jerome Alexander JONES, b. in Walker County, Georgia.

Does anyone have information on Mary Selena (who was called "Cepena Jones" in the 1870 Census, Arkansas, Van Buren County, Hartsugg Township)? She might have gone by the name of "Selena". Her last name "Hice" is probably a variant spelling of the German name, "Heiss." It would be wonderful to finally be able to know who her family was, and where they came from. Cheryl Jones

Hi Cheryl ... I think we're related. My g-grandfather was Thomas Hice Jones which you list as one of Mary's children. You can e-mail at and I'll give you info that I have.

Hope to hear from you,
