Louisa Margaret (Barber) Jones

There are no known photos of Louisa. Family members say they do not remember seeing one. Newspaper articles state two different portraits were done in the 1880s of Stephen and Louisa Jones and their two daughters, but these portraits have not been located.

An idea of Louisa's appearance may be surmised by viewing photos of her mother Adeline Barber and Louisa's two daughters, Christiana and Loutie.

Stephen Jones and granddaughter Mildred Hickman

Mildred was born December 14, 1891. We assume her age at 1 year in this late 1892 photo. Stephen was 66 years old.

Stephen and Louisa Jones raised Mildred after Loutie's death in November 1894 until Louisa's death in 1908.
