William was born 5 Jan 1859 in Avondale or Albadan Wales.

His father was Joseph E Jones and his mother was Sarah Hughes.  He
married Letitia Caswell who was born in Merthyr Wales 20 Oct. 1861.
I figure they married around 1879 that would put Wm. about 21 years of
age and Letitia abt 18.
Their fist child was born 11 Jun. 1880 in Avondale Wales and they named
him Joe.  Then is 1882 another child was born, he is James who is born
in Avondale also. This family is still living in Avondale Wales in 1884
as Bill was born.

Between 1884 and 1886 the family comes to America and settles in Soddy
TN. By Dec 1886 they have another son Thomas born in Soddy.  Will and
Letitia stay there abt four years as we find they have moved to Corder
Mo by 16 Feb. 1890, as my grandmother was born there.

Mom said that while they were living in Soddy, they worked and had to
charge all the necessities they needed.  When they finally paid off
their debt, they moved to Corder.  This info was supplied by Bernice
Parker Thornton, my mother.

Find that William and Letitia came to the USA in 1885 .  William was
naturalised in the year of 1892
