From the 1840's the Jones surname as appeared in what was to become the state of Oklahoma in 1907. An inquiry from Jones Journeys, Vol. VI, No.2, p. 59 seeks genealogical information about a Robert M. Jones. He is described as a prominent Choctaw who served his tribe faithfully and acted as intermediator with the Texas Republic in the 1840's. No other information is recorded.
Starting 1890, the Choctaw Nation recorded marriages in Indian Territory. Abstracted for the Jones surname recorded in Jones Journeys, Vol. 15, pp. 1392-1394. The earliest for the Jones surname appears to be 30 July 1890 when Marin Jones (22) marries Arver B. Cochran (16). Any Jones families out there related?
