My great grandfather is Ely (Eli) Lawrence Jones. He was born on November 26, 1846 in Kentucky and he died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 8, 1909. According to a Pennsylvania, U.S., Veterans Burial Cards, he fought in the Civil War from 9-2-1862 to 6-12-1865. He was buried in Arlington Cemetery in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. The card states he served in the Army and his rank was Corporal. His organization shows Co. E, 85th Ind. Inf. I was able to confirm his Civil War record which says his residence was Prairieton. He was married to Sarah Jane Reed (1864-1934). I believe they married in 1886. The only child that I am aware he had was my grandmother, Edna Reed Jones (1890-1975). I think Ely’s mothers name is Mary Hess but his death certificate is difficult to read so I can’t be certain. I am looking for any information pertaining to Ely Lawrence Jones and his family. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
