Ancestors of Loyd Scantling Jones (Family Tree Maker)

Here is an ancestral report using Loyd Jones, the oldest child of Dexter
and Lottie Jones as the primary individual. Keep in mind that this is a
work in progress that may contain errors. Much of the material is
believed to be accurate, but some may not be sourced. I would encourage
each of you to print this report, DATE IT AT THE TOP and file it away in
your photograph library. As I find major details, I will update the
family tree to reflect the new data. If someone in your family has an
interest in genealogy, encourage them to join our “team”. The more people
doing research the better.
Thanks…. Larry

52nd Annual Descendants of Ransom Jones reunion

Dear Joneses:
I finally pulled the trigger on scheduling our 52nd Annual Descendants of Ransom Jones Reunion. Like I said in my last email, I did not act in a timely fashion to secure the Sequoyah facility, so we will be meeting at the NorthPoint United Pentecostal Church in Sperry on Saturday, August 5. As usual, bring your favorite dishes and share. I will open the church at about 10 a.m., and could use some help setting up the table and chair layout. Bring photos if you can so that others can take a phone shot of them. There is no charge for the facility, but we normally put a donation jar on the dessert table. Hope to see everyone there.

51st Jones Reunion

August 6, at Sequoyah State Park (Group Camp Community Building)
unnamed

Dear Joneses:
The 51st Annual Descendants of Ransom Jones Reunion will be held at Sequoyah State Park, on Saturday, August 6, 2016. We are back at the Group Camp facility as in the past few years. We can occupy the premises much earlier this year, since it is not booked by another group the previous night. I will probably open the facility at 10 a.m., and could use some help setting up the table and chair layout. The Group Camp Community Building has adequate air conditioning. As you may recall, the kitchen is furnished with an ice maker, upright freezer and a walk-in cooler. If you use camp kitchen items, such as pots and pans, make sure you clean them yourself. Thanks.

The total charge for the group for the weekend is $200, which I always pay several months in advance. We collect $4 for each person who is five years of age and older. If the math doesn’t work for the number of attendees, we could raise the fee to $5 on the day of the event. We will try to serve dinner sometime between noon and one o’clock p.m. We will have access to the building until late evening. Please do your part in the cleanup process before departing. The Group Camp Community Building is very near the office, out closer to the highway. Take the first right after you enter the park property.

Let’s make this 51st reunion another great one. Thanks for your continued participation. Remember that family is one of the most important things in our lives

Sequoyah State Park is 8 miles east of Wagoner, Oklahoma, just off Highway 51. Watch for the main park sign out by the highway. As soon as you turn into the park entrance, make a hard right onto the first road before you get to the office. This sign will say, “Group Camp”.

50th Jones Reunion

August 1, at Sequoyah State Park (Group Camp Community Building)

Dear Joneses:
This is a reminder about the 50th Annual Descendants of Ransom Jones Reunion at Sequoyah State Park, on Saturday, August 1. We are back at the Group Camp facility, which seemed to work out well last year. The main Community Building that we use does have adequate air conditioning. As you may recall, the kitchen is furnished with an ice maker, upright freezer and a walk-in cooler… much like Lutherhoma. I suggest that we use as few as possible of the dishes and pots/pans owned by the facility, in order to facilitate an easier cleanup. If you use camp kitchen items, make sure you clean them yourself. Thanks.

The total charge for the group for the weekend is $200 plus a refundable $200 cleaning deposit, both of which I always pay several months in advance. We collect $4 for each person who is five years of age and older. If the math doesn’t work for the number of attendees, we could raise the fee to $5 on the day of the event. One important detail is that, like last year, we will not have access to the facility until noon or so, since another group will be vacating the building and property at that time. We will try to serve dinner as soon as possible after we are cleared to enter the facility, so there won’t be a lot of prep time. We will have access to the building until late evening. Please do your part in the cleanup process before departing, so that we can get our deposit back. The Group Camp Community Building is very near the office, out closer to the highway. Take the first right after you enter the park property.

Let’s make this Golden Anniversary reunion another great one. Thanks for your continued participation. Remember that family is one of the most important things in our lives
