JONES posted by Catherine Woodham on Thursday, August 24, 2000

I was wondering if anyone out there could perhaps help me with a request that my mother-in-law made to me - to find the family of a bible she'd came in possession of. The bible was in the bottom of a box of things that she'd bought at a garage sale - I do not know of the family knew it was in the box or not. The garage sale would have taken place in or around the area of Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The bible is a large (11 by 9 inch and 2.5 inches in depth) ivory-colored hard-backed book (authorized King James Version), with the front cover embossed with "Holy Bible" on a scroll and the words "The Jones Family" on the right bottom corner of the scroll. The first page of the bible is a dedication page which reads: "A Wedding Remembrance Presented by Bob Reese, Pat Mulqueeney, Sr., Bob Davis, Sr., Western Heritage Savings; Vern Kube, Darlene Hart, Pendleton Sports Center; Roy & Audrey Comrie, Comrie Olds-Cadillac; Warren & Jean Harding, Harding Shoes; Steve & Carol Fisher, Eddie Knopp Insurance Agency; Ron & Mary Hiskey, Val Magee, Hiskey's Furniture Place; Charlie & Jan Brown, Charlie Brown Rentals & Sales; Bud & Bernie Moore, Medical Center Pharmacy' Pendleton, Oregon" The second page of the bible is a presentation page which reads: "Presented to The JONES family by the city of Pendleton date 4/26/1881." The Family Register page states that it is the bible of James Lennis and Traci Lyn Jones. The Marriage Record page states that James Lennis Jones, son of Mr. & Mrs. Howard Jones, married Traci Lyn Everett on 26 April 1980. The witnesses were Mark Ring and James Mantione. James Lennis Jones was born 10 Oct 1959 in Moah, Utah and died 23 Feb 1996. Traci Lyn Everett was born on 20 March 1962 in Whitesalom (?), Washington. The Husband's Family Tree page lists James Lennis Jones' parents as James Howard Jones and Doris Mgee. James Lennis is listed as having 1 brother and 4 sisters. James Howard is listed as having 2 brothers and 1 sister. The Wife's Family Tree page lists Traci Lyn Everett's parents as Edwin Everett and Phyllis Anderson. Traci Lyn is listed as having 3 brothers and 1 sister (some appear to be half-siblings). Edwin Everett is listed as having 1 sister (Evelyn) and Phyllis Anderson is listed as having 3 sisters. On the Children and Grandchildren page, James Lennis and Traci Lyn Jones are listed as having a daughter, Billii Lyn Jones, born in February, 1981, in Boise, Idaho. Two months later, according to the Events to be Remembered page, they moved to Oklahoma. Please help me get this bible back to the families of either James Lennis Jones or Traci Lyn Everett-Jones. Thanks,

BEATTIE, GODFREY, HUBBARD, ISAAC, LEWIS, PARKS, REDFORD posted by Bobbie on Tuesday, October 31, 2000

I am researching GODFREY, REDFORD, LEWIS, BEATTIE and HUBBARD lines. Leon LEWIS lived in Pendleton, Umatilla Co., Oregon in the early to mid 1900s he died in Pendleton in 1947. Annette BEATTIE was first married to Leon and then to John W. PARKS and lived in Pendleton until sometime in the 1940s(?) then moved to California then moved back to Pendleton where she died in 1973. My mother Charlotte Eloise LEWIS was born in Walla Walla but spent her late teens and early adult life in Pendleton. My mothers sister spent all of her teens and the rest of her life in Pendleton, Margaret ISAAC passed on 1978. There is more but this should be more than enough to establish my family was in and about Pendleton for many many years. Any information on these families would be appreciated.
