Indiana 1816

The Indiana Territory begins its story 1803 - 1805.  However, what was to become the state of Indiana was not formed until 1816.  The earliest records appear to be dated from 1801 in Clark County Wills & Executor's Records 1801 - 1833.  Here it is recorded that the will of George Jones was dated  August 13, 1806.  His wife was Jane Jones, and sister was listed as Polly Jones.  A Jones family it must have been before 1806.  The will was proved by Davis Floyd, along with a number of other Floyd being listed.  The will was probated 9 January 1808.  Any folks out there related?

The documentation is given: Jones Journeys, Vol. 14, 1986 - 1987, p.1273.
