Today I sourced the 1920 census record of the John W. Jones family in Lafayette Twp., Madison Co., IN. John was married to my maternal 2nd-great aunt, Margaret Pierce.
John was a farmer who owned his own free of mortgage in 1920. The family appears with two children, Herman and Neal. There is a 10 year age gap between the two of them, I'm not sure if there were other children who may have died young.
