5th Annual Jones Holiday Dinner in Sperry, Dec. 10

Dear Joneses:

We can confirm that the 5th Annual Jones Holiday Dinner will be held Saturday, December 10 in the Sperry UPC annex. We will start gathering at about 10:30 a.m. and go as long as you want to stay.. maybe 3:00 or 4:00 p.m. We will try to start serving food sometime between noon and 1 p.m. Donnie Marrs and I are furnishing two big smoked hams, cooked to perfection by national champion Buffalo’s Barbecue of Sperry. Other items needed are: alternate types of meat, covered dishes, veggie trays, potato dishes, desserts, salads, soft drinks and chips, as well as paper plates, napkins and plastic ware, etc. There will be no charge for anything, however we will accept a small donation from each family for the church to cover utilities, ice, coffee, etc. As in the past, optional dress code will be pioneer, Quaker, farm or cowboy/cowgirl. Hopefully you and yours can make it, but we understand that the holiday season can be a very busy one for each of you.

P.S. Please email me an estimate of the number of your family members who might be attending the dinner. We are encouraging everyone to bring and share photographs, as always.

Happy Early Thanksgiving from Larry and Donnie.

Room for Pictures

Hello Everyone,
At the Jones reunion a few weeks back, Steve Jones mentioned that with so many people taking pictures at the reunion every year. We should find a way to share these pictures with everyone. We now have 20 gigs of storage for pictures. In layman’s terms we have room for a whole lot of pictures, and can have as many albums as we want. I’m uploaded the pictures from various occasions (including reunion) I scanned from Orpha Briggs’ collection, and ones I’ve taken myself.

You can view these albums by going to:

We invite everyone to share your old and new family pictures. So if you have pictures from your collection and would like to share, just let me know and I can add you as a contributor where you can upload pictures directly to the web albums. You can either upload to an existing album, or I can create one specifically for you.
Or you can also email any pictures you would like added and I can upload them for you.

Also we revamped the site a little. It would also be great to get some new family stories and anecdotes for the site, so if you feel like writing something down or already have something written down. Send it over and we’ll get it added.

For anyone who may not know, the header image is from a picture of a painting by Lois Jones, of the Deck and Lottie Jones homeplace in Sperry.

Thanks for your time!
