Seaborn Augustus H. Jones [Parents] was born in 1806 in Washington, Ga. He married Adrian Rosser Malone on 10 Dec 1833 in Washington, Ga.

In the 1860 census he is listed as a farmer with $12,000 in real estate and $18,000 in his personal estate. His wife is listed as Adrian R.(Rosser) Malone and three children; Stephen B. Jones, Lawyer, struck by lightning and killed after 1880. Charles Mc. Jones, Lawyer, died July 2, 1863 at Gettysburg, Pa., and Weaver H. Jones, 19 years of age and away attending school, died Oct. 4, 1864 at Charleston, S.C. from yellow fever.. All three sons graduated from Emory College in Oxford, Ga. Note states that he was married at Oakwood, which might be his father's (Benjamin(?) home in Washington Co. !The 1850 census lists Cherry Malone, his mother-in-law and a Elizabeth Dorsy (idiotic) as living in the household. !A publication, "History of Washington County", published in 1924, lists a S.A.H. Jones as Captain of the Washington Rifles March 18, 1861 which consisted of 144 men. Mustered out March 18, 1862. Elected Captain of Co.E, 32nd Regiment Ga. Infantry May 7, 1862. He resigned July 11, 1862. "Cotton to Kaolin", A History of Washington County" states: !Page 16: "Debating societies were popular, though they sometimes flagged in depressed times. Feeling that the new depression creeping inexorably through the country was only temporary, or perhaps needed cheering, members of the Sandersville Lyceum in a notice in the "Sandersvile Telescope and Public Advertiser" of August 13, 1841, requested members to meet at the Courthouse "on Wednesday evening next at early candlelight for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of reorganizing and reviving the old society." The Sandersville Polemic Society joined the ranks a few years later. One of the subjects in 1846 was: "Are the Doctrines of the Universalists Contained in the Bible?" with Langmade and Lang for the affirmative, verses Hood and Jones. The Washington County societies took on those of the nearby counties. The Irwinton Debating Club was a formable opponent. Subjects over which the Sandersville Lyceum and the Irwinton club grappled in the decade before 1860 included "Is There Hope for the Unity of the Human Race?", "Does a Variety of Religious Sects Tend to Retard the Progress of Christianity?", Is the Existance of Political Parties in the State Dangerous to Republicanism?", and in 1860, "Has the Georgia Convention Equal Powers With the Legislature of Georgia?". Debating fever was always heightened by the arrival of new lawyers. The Langmade mentioned above was Edward S. Langmade, one of several attornies practising in Sandersville in 1846. He was a Canadian and his firm was Langmade & McConnell. Clark O. McConnell, also a Canadian, married a Washington County girl, Augusta Warthen, in 1847. Other Sandersville lawyers of the time included James S. Hook and J. W. Rudisill. The Jones probably was S.A.H. Jones, a public-spirited planter." !A large fire destroyed a most of downtown Sandersville in 1855. It started from a blacksmith's shop and spread to adjoining buildings. Seaborn's lost $300 worth of money or goods. !An article in 1875 Sanderville Herald mentions him by calling him "long since deceased". !There is a mention of a Mrs. A.R. Jones. A group bought land of hers in 1868 to build a Baptist church in downtown Sandersville. This would indicate Seaborn died between 1862 and 1868. !Seaborn was a Clerk of the Court in his early days. On Jan 6, 1832 he was elected Sheriff of Washington County for two years. He served as a Member of the Georgia State Legislature with Silas Floyd and Thomas J. Warther in 1837 and 1838. According to an Abstract submitted to the GA Archives (http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ga/military/mexican/newsabst.txt) "18 Apr 1847 - Another Company has been raised in the Counties of Scriven and Jefferson and have elected their officers and sent on their application to be taken into the service. S. A. H. Jones has been chosen Captain, W. F. Leon, 1st Lieut., _ _ _ _ (John?) Rudesil, 2nd Lieut., and_ _ _ _ (L*jier?) Crafton, brev. 2d Lieut." On August 11, 1848 Seaborn again took office, evidently to complete the term of William F. Speight as Sheriff until Jan 1, 1850. On Jan 8, 1852 he was again elected Sheriff and served until Jan 10, 1854. Seaborn was listed in Attornies of Washington County, 1800-?? , as were his sons Stephen and Charles. Evidently Weaver never took the bar. !Seaborn A.H. Jones enlisted Mar. 18, 1861, elected Captain, Co. E., 1st Regiment Georgia Infantry (Ramsey's); mustered out at Augusta, GA March 18, 1862; elected Captain of Co. E., 32nd Regiment Georgia Infantry May 7, 1862; resigned July 11, 1862. His letter, written by another, but signed by himself reads: Battery "Harrison " near Sav'h, Ga. 1st July, 1862 Gen. S. Cooper Adj't Insp. Gen'l C.S.A. Richmond, Va, General, I have yhe honor to tender this my immediate resignation as Capt. Co. "E" Col. G. P. Harrison's Reg't., Ga. Volunteers. Very Respectfully, Your Obdt. Servant S. A. H. Jones Capt. Co. "E" His signature is written in a very unstable manner indication he was affected by some debilitating illness. The resignation was given to Col. Geo. P. Harrison on the 2nd of July, 1862 who made a notation on a company roster card as follows: "Hd. Qrs Battery "Harrison" 2 d July 1862 Approved and highly recommended from the fact that the Cap't is old and feeble and I think if his resignation is accepted and his 1st Lt. promoted it will be to the interest of the service. Geo. P. Harrison Col. Comdg." The resignation and Colonel Harrison's comments were forwarded to General Mercer who made the following comment and then forwarded the resignation to the Inspector General in Richmond. Hd Qrs Dist. Ga. Savannah, July 3rd 1862 "Strongly recommended and respectfully forwarded. H. N. Mercer Brig Gen Comdg" Seborns resignation was made official July 11, 1862.

Adrian Rosser Malone [Parents] was born in 1813. She died in Washington, Ga. She married Seaborn Augustus H. Jones on 10 Dec 1833 in Washington, Ga.

They had the following children:

Weaver Harrison Jones [Parents] was born in 1841 in Washington, Ga. He died on 4 Oct 1864 in Charleston, Charleston, Sc. The cause of death was Yellow Fever. He was buried in Magnolia Cemetery. He married Sarah Louise Florence on 23 Mar 1863.

Weaver Harrison Jones joined the Washington Rifles March 18, 1861 as a private. Mustered out at Augusta, Ga on March 18, 1862. Elected 2nd Lt. in Company E, 32nd Regiment Ga. Infantry May 7, 1862; 1st Lt. July 11, 1862. He received sick furlough for 30 days October 21, 1862. Granted a certificate of Disability on which to base an application for leave of absence December 10, 1863. He died from yellow fever on Oct. 4th, 1864 at the Louisiana Hospital in Charleston, S.C. He is said to have contracted yellow fever while guarding prisoners. He is buried in the Magnolia Cemetery in downtown Charleston, SC. He was interned on 5 Oct 1864 in Confederate Section Row C11, headstone 20. His grave was located for me and pictures taken by Betty Sigwald Futch on 24 June 1997. She said that it appeared that headstones had been replaced recently. His name on the paperwork and the head stone wrongly names him as William H. Jones, intered 10/05/1864, that he died of yellow fever, and was a Lt. in Co. E, 32nd GA Regt, and no age. The error in the paperwork has been corrected 2 July 1997 after a correction was requested and documents from the Georgia Department of Archives and History was sent. The head stone is to be replaced as soon as possible according to a letter I received from the cemetery signed by Elizabeth E. Johnson. !His widow, Sarah Louise Florence Jones later married J. P. Harris on 12/15/1886. !Weaver entered Emery College, Oxford, Georgia in 1857 and graduated in 1860. His tuition ($50.00) was paid by Seaborn A. H. Jones. This information provided by Betty Lou Lyerly from information she received from Emery College. In addition it is reported in the "Occupation and address Register of the Graduates of Emory College, Oxford, GA, published in 1910" that Weaver H. Jones received an A.B. degree as a member of the class of 1860. !Georgia 1st Infantry Regiment was organized for one year on May 27, 1861. Mustered out in May 1862.
