Robert Frederick Jones This is Robert "Bob" "Poppa" Frederick Jones (1854-1935) ( He was not a descendant of Eli Jones but of Eli's older brother, James Jones. He is pictured here because he was married to his second cousin, Fannie Jones, pictured above. Bob's parents were Robert Lorenzo Jones (1823-1896) and Susan A. (Watts) Jones (1834-1856). The parents of Robert Lorenzo Jones were James F. Jones (1782-before 1854) and Susannah Jones (1790-1875). This picture was taken at Poppa's farm in Dalzell, South Carolina. He is sitting in his rocker on the porch smoking his pipe. He and Fannie built the porch and the house. His right arm is shown in the picture. His left arm had been cut off in a sawmill accident. To do hoeing he had a strap that attached his arm stub to the hoe. Similarly, he was able to do his plowing by attaching a strap to his arm stub. He had his Bible on a ledge above his head on the porch. He read it a good bit. He used suspenders to hold up his pants. The picture was taken in the 1930s. (ch-jpg/J24-3.jpg).

It was in and around the "Old Jones Farmhouse" and at the church and town that the Bob and Fannie raised their children from the 1870s to the 1930s. Earlier, Bob's father, Robert Lorenzo Jones and Fannie's paternal grandmother, Barbary (Stafford) Jones, had raised their families in these same places from the 1820s to the 1870s.

Charles L. Jones and his grandson, Charles Hubert Hill Charles L. Jones (1879-1949) and his grandson, Charles Hubert about 1946 in front of the smokehouse on the farm in Dalzell, S.C. where he was the overseer (farm manager) for Mr. Barnett. Later Mr. Barnett's son, who died in Alabama in 1996, owned the place. Charlie was the overseer for a number of contiguous farms that housed five or so tenant families. Charlie had a Number 10 bell which was rung when it was time to go into the field to work. In recent times Ronnie Weldon donated this bell to the Sumter County Historical Society. Among Charlie's skills was veterinary science. Whenever a horse, mule, cow or dog had a problem, it was Charlie that was consulted by everyone in the neighborhood. In this picture, Charlie was wearing a three piece suit and a fancy hat. He adopted Hazel and Edmunds Hogan, who were the orphaned children of his sister, Annie Jones Hogan. In the 1930s and 1940s, he liked to go cat fishing with Walter Weldon, who was married to his second cousin, Ethel Ross Weldon.
Bill McCall Among the tenant families that Charlie Jones oversaw was that of Bill McCall. For Lena Jones Hill, one of Charlie's daughters, the tenant families were part of her own family. That was something that Methodism taught. Here Bill McCall is holding Lena's son in about 1946. The child and the dog to the lower right were talking to each other. In the background on the right can be seen a woman with a large sack over her shoulder. It was fall and time for the cotton harvest. Cotton paid the rent.

Bonnie Smyre The first child of Momma and Poppa Jones was Charlie Jones. One of Charlie's grandsons, Billy Smyre (b. 1946) became a computer programmer. He played a crucial part in the creation of this web page. He had a daughter, Bonnie, who likewise took up the programmer trade. She created this web page, complete with the picture pop-out design. She used Javascript. Without Billy there would have been no Bonnie and no web page, or at least not the elegant one that we have now. Billy is pictured here with wife Barbie, who is also a programmer. (2004.02.02, ch-jpg/jones-2.jpg).

As a child, Toby and Bonnie’s dad, Billie Smyre, used to see each when there were family gatherings at Clyde’s place (which was really Lena and Hubert Hill’s place). (2004.02.02, ch-jpg/04-2-02.jpg).
