Biography* After James Franklin Jones' wife, Della E. Hines Jones, died after child birth, in November of 1890, he was very sad and lonely. He was living in his log cabin alone.
In 1890 James went to spend Christmas with Wesley Berry Culpepper, his daughter-in-law, Carolyn Louise Culpepper, and her son, Carroll Wesley. James discovered that Wesley Culpepper wanted to break up house keeping and move to Georgia to live with his other daughter, Emmie Rudisill, her husband, Will Rudisill and their two daughters.
As much as Carolyn loved all her family she wanted her own home. James Jones needed a wife to bless his life, so they decided to marry and live in Geneva, Florida.
James Franklin Jones and Carolyn Louise Harris Culpepper were married on March 14, 1891 in Orlando, Orange county, Florida. They were married by James W. Thompkins, Florida Conference, and witnessed by J.L.Bryon, county judge. This can be found in book 1 - 4/ 216. Linda Crompton has a copy of their marriage license from the state.
For awhile Carolyn, James, and Carroll Wesley Culpepper lived in a log cabin, but soon they bought four acres of land and built a large, two story, colonial home in Geneva, Florida.
In this house in 1893, William Jones was born, but died six months later. Four years later, on October 28, 1897, Della Jones was born in this same house. Della was named after James' first wife, Della Hines Jones. Then two years later, on June 6, 1900, a baby girl was still born. This colonial home burned down in 1911.
Della Jones remembers at the turn of the century (1900) there was a New Years Eve party at James and Carolyn's colonial home in Geneva, Florida. Before midnight everyone went out on the front porch and around it. Della was sitting on the swing on the front porch listening to the adults talking about the old century going out and the new one coming in.
They talked of the two bad freezes that came in 1895 and spring of 1896. They killed the orange trees back to the roots. A terrible disaster to those living on income from the orange groves. For a few years there was no money. Many had to even use fat, long light wood splinters that they would light and put in a can for lights. Their coffee was grated sweet potatoes, parched. and they practicely lived on biscuits and syrup, given to them by a neighbor. who grew cane. James and Carolyn helped work, chop, and grind the cane and make the syrup. They were paid in syrup.
They always had a good garden with corn, black eyed peas, and watermelon in season and occasionaly bunches of bananas from the banana trees. Black berries and blue berries more plentiful and in that way they got along till ornage crops were bearing again. There would be more work at that time. A days work was from sun rise to sun set and the wages were 50 cents to 75 cents a day.

"Early Life in Geneva", (c) 2005, article 'Orange Industry in Geneva', page 11:
The Chase and Company packinghouse, on the west side of the orange grove, was facing north on the Old Sanford Road and was near the Cochran pond. The packers slept upstairs and cooked outdoors ot took their meals with Mrs. Frank Jones, who then lived in a large Colonial type home on the site of the house which now stands at the junction of Osceola and old Sanford road. Carroll Culpepper was among the packers.
One of the packing houses that had the new roller type sizers in 1908 was the Huddleston at the old Rudisill grove near the turpentine still.

The first transportation Della Jones remembers them having was a little donkey named, "Jack" and a two wheeled cart.
All the roads in Geneva were sandy ones. Della was a big girl before the first clay road was made from Jones corner through Geneva and part way to Oviedo. These were later replaced by marl and still later a brick road from the river, through Geneva.
James and Carolyn later got a gray mare and a wagon and buggy. The mare bought them two mare colts named Dolly and Helen. These were traded for a big red horse and later James bought another red horse to make a double team.

"Early Life in Geneva", (c) 2005, article 'History of Telephone Service in Geneva', page 18:
In 1910, the telephone switchboard was moved to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Jones (parents of Della Jones Starling. Mrs. Jones was Carolyn Louise Harris Culpepper Jones, mother of Carroll Wesley Culpepper, and grandmother of Khadra Culpepper Ward and Margaret Culpepper Wolcott - members or our Genealogical Society.) The Jones lived in the Culpepper home at the intersection of the old Sanford and Cook's Ferry Road. Their lovely old colonial home burned in 1911 and a new one was built on the site. (now owned by Sue Jones Norton and Dolly Jones House, nieces of Mr. Frank Jones.) Mrs. Jones died in 1916 and Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Wesley Culpepper (Kitty Wells Sieg-Allen) moved to the Jones home and operated the switchboard there until 1918 when the telephone office was moved to the Carroll Culpepper home on the Oviedo Road next to the Community Hall where it remained until 1941 when the dial system was installed in a small block building built by W. G. Kilbee (just south of the Culpepper home) and enlarged in 1959 to its present size, April 1964.
Besides the members of these mentioned families as operators of the switchboard at various times were the following operators: Della Jones Starling (Mrs. Ira. C.), Khadra Ann Mercer Sieg (Mrs. George Harrison), Khadra Culpepper Ward (Mrs. Ernest Marvin), and others.

James, Carolyn and Della Jones attended the wedding of their son Carroll Wesley Jones and Miss Kitty Wells Sieg on January 21, 1912, at the Sieg residence in Geneva, Florida.
Ella Mary Starling, his grand daughter, said she used to love to sit on the front porch of this house and comb her granpa, James Franklin Jones, beard, while he sat in his rocking chair on the front porch of his house. Ella Mary said she always wanted to stay with her granpa Jones during the summers when she was out of school.
Martha Jones, James' grand daughter, used to like to sit on the front porch with her grandpa and scratch his head for him.
James and Carolyn's house was in an orange grove of many acres. James worked in these groves. James' family owned it, Billy Jones, and they told him he could live there as long as he lived.
Just down the end of the street where James lived was a building that was the post office, gas station, and grocery store, all in one.
This house burned down in 1911 and was rebuilt. Martha Carolyn Starling Russell, James grand daughter, and Ira Carroll Starling, James grand son, were born in this house.
The wooden building on the side of the house, near the road, was closed in for living quarters.
In 1906, James was very sick. Carolyn insisted that James go to visit his relatives. James consented to go provided he could take Della with him. Carolyn and her friends had a new wardrobe made and James and Della were on their way.
Their first stop was in Greensboro, Georgia. Benjamin Jones, James' brother, met them and took them to his farm. Benjamin's wife, Evie, two sons, John and Henry, daughters, Florrie, and Lois, and grand children were there.
From Ben's they went to visit James' sister, Lillie Amos, husband, and two young daughters, Eula and Lillian, and son, Paul.
Then on to Bermuda to visit James' brother Wiley Jones. Wiley lived in his father, Henry Burnley Jones', old home.
Next they went to vist Seaborn Gerald Jones at his home near Wiley's. Seaborn is Henry Burnley Jones; brother.
Finally they went on to Augusta, Georgia to see James' brother, William H. Jones, his wife, Julia Estelle, daughters, Sue, Dolly, married son Harry and his daughter, Julia.
There was a grocery store, gas station, post office combination at the other end of the street where James' house was. It has been there since the late 1800's. The Coke Cola company filmed a commerical here in 1987. This store was a deli, feed and grain store, and had one gas pump at the time of the filming. Ed Sieg was the former owner of this store.
The floors in the community center, next door to the museum in Geneva, used to be a dance floor.
There were many nationalities in Geneva. There were French, Russian, Germans, and Jews.
The people made their living by taking in washing and ironing, terpentine, fishing, three citrus packing houses, cattle, and a coke cola factory.
There used to be a big, two story train depot in Geneva with "Geneva" on it, right off Avenue C. The station is gone and so are the tracks. In 1996 there was just a big open space where this stood.
Oseola had the largest cypress milling company in the U.S. When all the cypress trees were cut down they left. Oseola died. Geneva almost died.
They started having May Day picnic's in Geneva at Fort Lane on Lake Harney on May Day starting in 1946. They still have them every May Day. They say that you could wade half way across the lake at one time. Geneva has a lot of water around it and this helped the peolpe get their supplies by boat.
Geneva had one of the very first Coke Cola plants. The bottle was empressed with "Geneva, Florida" on it. The musuem had one of these bottles at one time but has been lost. When the Coke Cola company filmed the commerical at the corner store they did not know that there was a bottling plant in Geneva at one time.
Carolyn died in November of 1916 of a heart attack. When Della's son Ira Starling woke up in the middle of the night crying, Carolyn got to rock him. She died that night.

Obit in Geneva Newspaper:
"Geneva News.
Thursday morning the residents of Geneva were shocked and grieved to hear of the sudden death of Mrs. F. L. Jones, which occurred Wednesday night at 11:30. The cause was heart failure. Mrs. Jones has had more or less heart trouble for a number of years, but her most intimate friends did not realize that she was in immediate danger.
Besides a host of friends who will miss her cheery voice at the telephone.
Mrs. Jones was telephone operator at Geneva "central". She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, Mr. F. L. Jones, who is in very poor health and who has the sympathy of the entire community and one son, Mr. Carol Culpepper and one daughter, Mrs. Starling. Also three dear little grand children who will never know how much they have lost. Geneva has indeed lost a kind and generous friend."

James continued on living at their home.
James used to visit Della Starling's family every Christmas and bring them a sack of oranges. This was a real treat to them and they loved to have him visit.
James became blind in one eye later in life.

James Jones wrote the following letter, from Geneva, on January 27, 1930, about one and a half months before he died, to his grand daughter, Ella Mary Starling, who was age 9 at the time:
"My dear Ella Mary, Youe sweet letter received several days ago. I sure glad. I sure was proud that you could write such a good letter. And I do wish that I could write you good letter, but have nothing new to write about. I am just about the same old thing as ever. I am still here and doing my cooking. I see a lot of people passing but do not go but little. I was busy last week the oranges. They are about gone now, all that is any good. The cold (//) the tangerines. So bad that are still on the trees. Harry has not come you I do not when he will come. I was lonely after you left me and when ever I think of you all being so far from me it makes me more so. I wish I could see you in your new home. I am going to try and come after a while. Tell mother and bro that I will them here from me before long. You must wait on me. Some of you write me every week. You must study hard and learn fast. Ane be a good girl. Good by for this time. Write. Lots of love for all, as ever, your grandpa, J. F. Jones."
James hand writting in this letter was very good. But the letter was written with a pebcil and time has faded it quite a bit. Linda had this letter in her family book.

When Bud and Linda Crompton went to Geneva on May 30, 1996 they met a man named Joe Matheaux. His family is from France and he was about 76 years of age at the time. Joe volunteered to show them around the Geneva museum. He had to come from his house to open it up. He said he knew the Culpeppers for a long time. When he was 6 years old he moved to the station that was a grocery store, filling station, post office. The Culpeppers lived down the street.
When Joe Matheaux and his best friend, Buddy, were younger they hitchhiked from Geneva to Miami. (This friend of Joe's killed his self in the school yard in Geneva). They were going to Miami to see two of the Starling girls. One was Margaret and he could not remember who the other Starling girl was that they wanted to see. Joe said he should have been born earlier because he seemed to have more in common with Della Jones Starling, the girls mother, than the younger girls.
Joe and Buddy thumbed and thumbed for a ride. They got to Titusville and no one had picked them up. They went to see their friends, the Bronson family, regular old, country people. Joe and Buddy had not had anything to eat all day. The railroad runs right behind the Bronson house. The father would jump the train and go to Miami quite often. Joe and Buddy had never been on a train, but they decided to try jumping the train. So after dark when the train stopped right there, they made a mad dash for it. They knew nothing about a train and they ended up jumping into a gondolla car with rocks in it. They rode to Miami on top of rock's! When the train would stop they could hear the railroad men looking for hobo's, but they did not look in the car with rocks. Joe said he guessed they thought no one would ever ride on top of the rocks.
When Joe and Buddy got to Fort Lauderdale, Buddy decided he had to go to church, because it was Sunday. Buddy was Catholic and knew where the church was. It was quite a long way from the train tracks. He went into the church, did the sign of the cross and left.
By the time Joe and Buddy got to Miami they were full of black smut, dust and dirt. They found a filling station and washed their hands and faces.
Joe didn't remember how they got to the Starling house in Miami. The Starlings did not live right down town. They spent the night with the Starling's, and the next morning Della fixed them breakfast. Joe is a country kid and did not know what honey dew melon was. Della cut a honey dew melon in half and gave them each one with ice cream on top. Joe said it was the weidest thing he had ever had, but he did not waste any of it because he was hungry and it was delicious. At home he said he always had the same thing for breakfast; fried eggs, grits, bacon, coffee and toast. Sometimes they would have pancakes or waffles.
(Joe Matheaux)

In May of 1996 Linda and Bud Crompton went by the house in Geneva. It was completely empty. No one was living there and it was in need of a lot of repair. There were no orange trees around the house any more. Newer, bigger homes were being built around the Jones house. There was a paved two lane road in front of the house, where it had once been a one lane, brick road, with soft sand on the sides, that you could easily get stuck in.
Linda picked up four bricks from the ground. They had been used to hold up the front porch at time. Linda mailed one brick to each of the three living grand daughters, Martha Carolyn Starling Russell, Bessie Frances Starling Liebmann, and Ella Mary Starling Herring. The fourth brick she kept for her self. Everyone who received one of these bricks was thrilled because it brought so many happy memories of their childhood at that home. Linda also sent them pictures of the house.
In 1998 the house was still standing. The fancy work on the front porch had been added. It had been purchased recently and the people were going to remodel the house. This was the second house that was built on this site after the first one burned in 1911.
Ira Carroll Starling, James grand son, and Martha Carolyn Starling Russell, James' grand daughter, were both born in the second house.
The newspaper wanted Martie Russell to tell the story of the house for the paper and have her picture made in front of the house. But Martie never did this as she felt the trip was too much for her as her health was not very good at the time.

Linda and Bud Crompton went by James' house in Geneva on May 4, 2002. They were there for the 50th May Day picnic at Fort Lane. Linda thought the house might be gone because the last time she saw it it was in very bad shape. But to her surprise it was in very good shape.
They met Len and Sandy Berube, the people living in the house. The address of the house is 791 Old Geneva Road, legal discription is section16, township 20S, Range 32 E W 157 FT of E 854.5 FT of N 194 FT of NE 1/4 (Less Roads on N & W). The house was sold in October 1989 for $50,000, May 1997 for $45,000, and then in July 2001 for $169,000.
The Berube's said that the man they bought the house from had done a lot of remodeling. He gutted the inside because it was in very bad shape. It had been rented and they mistreated the house.
The Berube's fell in love with the house the first time they saw it. This was even before it was fixed up. They could not afford to buy it and spend the moneies to fix it up. When they saw it fixed up, they bought it right away.
The house now has two bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. Two of these bedrooms are in the second story attic. One of the bathrooms has an old fashioned bath tub and no shower. They are so proud of the tub that they don't take baths in there. They use the shower in the other bathroom. There is a wooden deck on one side, air conditioning and a satilight dish. In the yard they have an arch with a pretty flowering vine on it, stone steps leading up to the front door, a white picket fence around the front yard, pretty flower beds, a pretty green front door, and the house was painted yellow.
They had even added a two horse stall to the side of the yard, away from the house.
They have two children, one son and one daughter.
Linda has been told that the Berube's have had the house put on the historical registar because of the age of the house.
Linda Crompton made up a notebook on James Franklin Jones' life. The Historical Society has put it in the Geneva museum. There are pictures of James and Carolyn, the house, birth, death, and marriage certificates in the book as well as a history of the family.

James Franklin Jones died on March 13, 1930, in Sanford, Florida, at the Fernald Laughter Hospital, at the age of 73.
His body was removed for burial to Geneva, Florida on March 15, 1930. James is buried in the Geneva Cemetery in lot 60C. On his tomb stone it states: " J. Frank Jones, born Taliaferro Co., Ga., June 28, 1856, Died, Geneva, Fla., March 13, 1930".
At the time of his death, James was retired and a widower.
James Franklin Jones was greatly loved by his children and his grand children. Every one seemed to love James.2

James T. Culpepper1

Male, #47923, (circa 1830 - )
Father*James Culpepper (c 1796 - b 1 Jun 1840)
Mother*Amelia Darden (s 1805 - )
Birth*circa 1830 He was born circa 1830 at Georgia.1 
1830 Census1 Jun 1830 James was probably a free white male, age under 5, in James Culpepper's houshold, on the 1830 Census at Warren Co., Georgia. Otherwise unaccounted for is 1 Male 0-5 and 1 Female 0-5..2 
1850 Census*1 Jun 1850 James listed as a household member on the 1850 Census on 1 Jun 1850 at Warren Co., Georgia.1 
1860 Census*1 Jun 1860 James was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census at Warren Co., Georgia.3 
Research note*31 May 2004 The ancestry of James is unproven. His only definitive records are the the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Warren Co., GA. As he has not been found after 1860, it is quite possible that he died in the Civil War. He has been assigned as the possible son of James and Amelia Darden due to their presence in the same county, the lack of any other known possibilities, and the fact that James and Amelia in 1830 had in their household 2 males age 0-5 who have otherwise not been accounted for.

Male, #47924, (circa 1849 - )

1850 Census1 Jun 1850 Parmelia, Trusannah, William, John, Ella, Wesley, Buler and Robert listed as a household member living with William T. Huskey on the 1850 Census on 1 Jun 1850 at Warren Co., Georgia.
(The baby Robert Culpepper shown in this household by the census is otherwise unaccounted for. It seems likely that Ella or Trusannah were not Culpeppers at birth but married William or John, and Robert was the son of this couple. It should also be noted that no girls appeared in Dickinson's HH in 1840 as age 5-10 (which would have been Ella's age bracket), and only 1 girl appeared as age 10-15 (but both Frances and Trusannah were in this bracket). Thus, it might best be assumed that both Ella and Trusannah were born to other parents and married Culpeppers. Given the relative ages, it seems most likely that Trusannah married William and Ella married John. Further, as they are the older couple, Trusannah and William are probably the parents of Robert. However, both John and William married other wives in the 1850's, so if either was the father of Robert and the husband of Trusannah or Ella, it appears that their first wife and child had both died within a few years.

Further complicating the matter, in the 1840 census their were no boys under the age of 15 in Dickinson's HH. Therefore, it would appear unlikely that either William or John were the children of Dickinson.)1

Research note Concerning the father of George Culpepper:

George Culpepper's mother, Mary Culpepper, was shown as divorced in the 1880 census. The identity of George's father is uncertain, but a George W. Culpepper was named as a grandson in the 1879 will of Stephen M. Culpepper.

Stephen M. Culpepper was the son of Robert Culpepper and his first wife, Pheriba Wright. Pheriba died when Stephen was only about four years old. Circa 1819, when Stephen was about eight, Robert married second, Jane. In the 1830 census in Columbia Co., Stephen and his brother George Washington Culpepper, are likely the males age 15-20 who are living with Jane. Jane was enumerated again in Columbia Co. in 1840 and then in Richmond Co. in 1850. Stephen has not been found in the 1840 census, but in 1850, 1860 and 1870 he was enumerated as a head of household in Jones Co. The most likely child of Stephen to be the father of George is the oldest son, William R. Culpepper, born circa 1853.

If you can help in the identification of George's father, please contact Warren Culpepper.1,2

Biography* Carl Triebes wrote on 12 Jun 2010:
     My grandmother, Minnie Baker Jones, was the youngest daughter of James Monroe Baker. James was the son of Andrew and Elizabeth Baker and was born in 1838 after the family had moved to Cherokee County, Alabama, from Tennessee and Virginia. In her family notes, Minnie listed the maiden name of Elizabeth as Leedy, and the name Leedy is also listed in the discharge papers of James M. I believe this is the name you are looking for. One of the Census records has it spelled "Leedey".
     I do not have a complete listing of all the children of Andrew and Elizabeth. James M. served in the Civil War in the 8th Regiment, Missouri State Militia Cavalry; Company D. According to his military record, James was the youngest of seven brothers. I only know of four... The children I know about are James M. (1838), Andrew (1835), James J. (1833), Mary (1825), and now Rufus (1820) and Martha (1813).
     The 1800 Virginia Census shows that the Leedy (or Leedey) families were located in Weyth County, Virginia. Andrew and Elizabeth were both born in Virginia.
     There were Baker families in Weyth as well. Weyth County is in the extreme western end of Virginia near the Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama borders.

J. David Brandenburg wrote on 26 Nov 2011:
I noticed on one page that you had hinted that Elizabeth (possibly Leedy) could be a second wife of Andrew Baker. I would tend to agree with you. In my opinion, the Andrew Baker of McMinn County, Tennessee, and later of Cherokee County, Alabama, is the same Andrew Baker, who previously had lived in Lee County, Virginia.
     Andrew Baker and his wife, Jane, sold land in Lee County in 1822, apparently ahead of their move to McMinn County. It is my expectation that Jane is the daughter of William Briance, a tax commissioner and justice of the peace in Lee County, who under the name William Briant / Bryant appeared on the McMinn census in 1830. In his role as a J.P., William certified the deeds from Andrew and Jane Baker in 1822. William possibly was a brother of a John Briant / Bryant, who lived near Andrew Baker in McMinn County (according to census and tax records). William and John owned land together in McMinn County, which they sold to James Pelly in 1838.
     Under the name William F. Briant, he left a will in McMinn County in 1840, naming a granddaughter Betsey Baker. It would seem reasonable that William would leave a legacy to his grandchild, rather than his child, if the said child had already died. That would seem to suggest that Jane (Briant) Baker died sometime after 1822, but before 1840, leaving her daughter, Betsey, as an heir to William. Given that you have identified Martha and Rufus as other children of Andrew Baker, and born before 1820, perhaps Andrew had an even earlier wife, who died prior to his marriage with Jane. This would help to explain why William F. Briant named only Betsey in his will.4,5
