looking for JONES

Journal by PatGarrett

I am looking for the mother and father of Ora Anna Jones 1877-1965, she was born in Missouri and died in Ill. She married Henry C. Bennington in 1897. They had 5 children, Ivan Leroy, Alberta, Emma Mae (my grandmother), Effie Belle, and Chester. I was told she was full blooded indian so birth state may be wrong. I have looked everywhere and cant get anywhere so any information would be greatfull.

Thank you noggin, I have all the same information, but I was looking for her parents. And it does say that she was white, but she was Indian. My mother told me that back then she may have been bought by the Jones family and given her there name, that may be why I cant find her parents. But she is clearly Indian I do have a picture of her and you can see it clearly. But thanks for trying to help.
