Perhaps the most highly esteemed and useful preacher ever raised up in Holly Springs Baptist Church in Edmundson Co. Kentucky was Rev. John Jones, son of Phillip and Nancy Webb Jones. John Jones, the 4th son, was born in Pendleton (now Pickens) County South Carolina on 10 December 1790 and came to Kentucky with his parents. As a young man he spent a short time near Edwardsville, Illinois during Indian troubles. He returned home and married Eleanor Garrison, 30 January 1813. They united with the Holly Springs Baptist Church that soon ordained him to preach the gospel. He was a very stout man and preached all over that portion of the country: frequently working on his farm five days of the week and preaching as many as nine sermons in the remaining two days. He pastored Holly Springs for a considerable time, in addition to Beaver Dam at Rhoda, and Beaver Dam in Grayson County (now known as Leitchfield First Baptist Church). It is not known how many he baptized but the number ran into the hundred, perhaps thousands. Among those was his own father, age 60, who had previously been a Methodist. Rev. or Elder, as preachers were called in those days, John Jones was an uneducated man of natural ability and firmness, a strong advocate to total abstinence from intoxicating drink, a Whig and a republican, and always opposed to human slavery. Due to his outspoken manner, he was admired but not always liked. He was active in both the Green River Association and the Liberty Association. On 20 August 1842, Elder John Jones delivered the introductory sermon before the Liberty Baptist Association at the Glasgow Baptist Church, Glasgow, Ky. His sermon was based on Mark 13:34. Seated in the congregation were such men as Elder James Locke (son of Elder Jacob Locke), Elder J. M. Pendleton, Richard Garnett and others. About 1850 a number of families moved from this area to Warren County, Illinois. Rev. Jones and almost all of the families of his seven brothers and sisters were involved in this move; the reason for moving is not known. He continued his preaching until his death 16 May 1862. He was a strong lunged man but died of inflammation of the lungs. Soon after his death almost all of the Jones families moved to Union county, Iowa where his wife, Eleanor, died 06 September 1882. John and Eleanor Garrison Jones had nine children, most of whom moved first to Illinois and then to Iowa. They were Martin W. Jones who married Rosana Lindsey, 21 Jan 1836; Emily Jones who married William Morris; Veachel H. Jones who married Sarah Ann Gardner 22 Sept. 1846; Willis Jones who married Margaret E. Ray, 26 Sept. 1843; Mary Jones who married Edward Elmore, 05 March 1847; Sarah M. Jones who married Joel M. Franklin, 17 Jan. 1850; John H. Jones who married Lucy B. Bliss; Paradine Jones (unmarried); and Eliza A. Jones who married Fred Brice." (from The Barrens... by Emery White)

Webb, his securities conditioned as the law directs, and also taken the oath of allegiance to this commonwealth. - Edmonson Co., KY Orders Book I, Jul 1825
Connelley's 1922 History of Kentucky describes Samuel Edwin Jones ancestry and says of his grandfather; Rev. John Jones, a native of South Carolina, who died in Illinois. He was a minister of the Baptist Church and a pioneer clergyman in what is now Edmondson County, Kentucky, to which region he came about the close of the eighteenth centuryand remained there until in the late '50's, when he went to Illinois. He married Eleanor Garrison, a native of North Carolina, who died in Iowa. The Jones family came to the American Colonies from Wales, first locating at Greenwood, South Carolina, from whence migration was made to North Carolina and then to Kentucky (543). Eleanor Garrison and Rev. John Jones were married on 30 December 1812 in USA, Kentucky, Warren Co..247 1812 - Warren Co Ky Marriages John Jones to Eleanor Garrison her cons by parents Merry and Mary Webb.

Winnie Whitaker says that in the 1830 & 1840 census John Jones is living next door to Merry Webb.... and living with John in each case is an elderly woman some 20 years older than his wife. Norman Warnell told Winnie that he found in Edmonson Co .. I think he said it was in the old equity files, where John Jones was paid by the county for the yearly care of a Mrs. Webb and Norman could never figure out who it might have been. Winnie believes it might be Mary Garrison Webb who was living with Eleanor and John. She was the same age as Merry who was next door. They lived next to each other in 1830 but by 1840 one or the other had moved. She will have to look and compare reighbors for 1840 to see who moved and believes Merry left Mary Garrison and married Mary Davis.

" by Emery White, goes on into much more detail about some of the descendants of John Jones including his son, Veachel who was a respected lawyer in Glasgow, Ky.|
Veachel Hobbs Jones, son of John and Eleanor, was born November 2, 1818 in Edmonson County. Soon after he became of age he was appointed deputy sheriff of Edmonson County and served two years. Then Sheriff for one term. In 1851 he was elected County Court Clerk. When that term expired he entered the practice of law and in 1856 moved to Glasgow, Kentucky to continue that practice. In 1856 he was elected judge of Barren County Court. After two terms he returned to his practice of law.
Connelley's 1922 History of Kentucky describes Samuel Edwin Jones father; Veachel H. Jones was born November 2, 1818, in what is now Edmondson County, Kentucky, and died at Glasgow January 29, 1876. Growing up in his native county, he began his business career as a school teacher, going from that line of work into clerking in a store or on a trading boat which plied on the Green River. For a number of years he served as a constable of Brownsville, was deputy sheriff of Edmondson County for a long period, and served as sheriff for one term. Later he was elected county clerk of Edmondson, and served as such for one term. In the fall of 1858 he moved to Glasgow and practiced law. In 1866 he was elected judge of the Barren County Court, and held that office until 1874, when he resumed his practice e, in which he continued until his death. He was a distinguished lawyer and very prominent citizen, who was extremely active in the democratic party of his district. From his youth until his death he was an earnest member of the Baptist Church and very strong in his support of it. A Mason, he belonged to Allen Lodge No. 24, F. and A. M.; Glasgow Chapter No. 45, R. A. M.;and he was also a Royal and Select Master and a Knight Templar Mason. For a number of years he held official position in the Grand Lodge of the State of Kentucky. It is interesting to note that Allen Lodge, which was established in 1813, has as its worshipful masters during one-third of a century of its history three members of the Jones family, Veachel H. Jones and his two sons, the late John W. Jones an Judge Jones. When war was declared by this country against Mexico Veachel H. Jones enlisted for service, but peace was declared before he reached the front, so he did not see active service. He married Sarah J. Gardner, who was born September 18, 1825, in what is now Edmondson County, and died at Glasgow May 31 , 1897. Their children were as follows: John W., who died at Glasgow August 4, 1908, was an attorney, treasurer of Barren County for eight years, master commissioner of Allen Lodge for many years; Judge Jones, who was second in order of birth; and Amelia E., who resides at Glasgow (544).
