  1. My grandmother, Sadie Moikauhane Jones, 1897-1977, Kauai or Honolulu, Hawaii, always said her father is a Jones. Looking at this article the Respondant is W.C. Jones. I’m looking for the Jones link.


  2. Debbie, check out the results for the search term Jones in all the nupepa. Unfortunately, in my experience, the search feature is not robust to distinguish separate terms. You can, however, provide a date range.–00-0-0–010-TX–4–JOnes—text—0-1l–1haw-Zz-1—20-about-%5BJOnes%5D%3ATX–0013JOnes-1-0000utfZz-8-00&a=q&r=1&hs=1&fqv=Jones&fqf=TX&qt=1&fss=&t=0&query=Jones
