Mabra Madden Jones and James Lovelady Families
Mabra Madden Jones and James Lovelady Families (70)
Mabra Jones and wife Sarah Lovelady, daughter of Rev James Lovelady and Nancy Linville (maiden name unproven) - this family settled in Dewitt and Lavaca counties area of Texas before 1850, eventually spreading out to places like Waco and Beaumont and Palestine. This album is dedicated to that family unit. Letters written by some of these family members, mostly Mary Jones, are included. These letters span a time from 1855 on through in the 1920s. They were transcribed and supplied to me by Leonard Meyer in the late 1990s. He was from Halletsville and a descendent of the Butts, Bounds, Coolie families. James Lovelady's daughter Jane died with a young family of her own. Her husband, Andrew Butts, stayed a "son" to the family, even after he remarried Susan Bounds. Susan became the beloved Aunt to the Jones children who most of these letters were written to. While the Jones children were still young, Sarah Lovelady, daughter of James, and sister to Jane, died at an early age. Mabra remarried Martha Ponton and had several more children. But it's through these letters that we get a good view of the whole family and indeed brings them all to life and allows us to share their memories.
