Alaska and Hawaii 1959
The last two to join the Union were Alaska and Hawaii in 1959. Not so long ago it would seem being eight years old at the time. Using "Jones Journeys" for the years 1973 - 1992 [19 volumes], there were no listings for the JONES surname from either state. I would guess that there are JONES families living in these states at the present time, but before 1992 there were no writings from those who would have interest in the genealogy of our surname.
This bring us through all 50 states. Any Jones families from Hawaii or Alaska out there? Would love to hear from you.
