    Notes 
    • Willis enlisted for duty in the Civil War - CSA on 16 February 1864.

      He was employed as a farmer in July 1880 in Carroll County, Georgia. He resided in1870 in Carroll County, Georgia.

      Willis Dallas Jones was injured in the Ciivil War and was a cripple for the rest of his life.

      He owned a bible which listed "Tybitha Jones nee Fowler" as the wife of Benjamin Jones, his grandfather. Later, the bible came into the possession of his son, Joseph Thurman Jones, who also made entries in the family history section. It was then passed on to Weems Jones. He related to other members of the Jones family that, at some point, the Bible became wet and entries hard to read. he tried to write over several entries but admits that he may have made mistakes on some dates.

      Research shows that it was highly unlikely that Benjamin Jones and Tybitha (Talitha) Fowler were ever married although she may have cared for the Jones children after the death of their mother, her sister Mary Eliphalet Jones.
