At the Pine Hill Rd cemetery where son Adelbert is buried there are some other Jones who may or may not connect in. These are the stones.

Frank H Jones 1864-1922 (possible parents Christopher & Augusta in 1880 census w/son Frank age 16).
Roxcy H Jones 1840-1920.
Edwin L Jones.

In 1991 Steve Jones talked to a local Jones man who gave the following connections of above.
The man was Frank Henry Jones 77 Sydney Center RD 1 Box 200AA Masonville NY 13839.
His parents are Harvey (14 Jun 1879-15 Feb 1957) & Elsie Mae (Burnside) above who were married Jan 1909.
Harvey's father was Frank H Jones (Supposition: Frank of 1864-1922 was probably brother of Harvey and they were sons of another Frank).
There is also a George, brother to Harvey who served in WWI.
No idea if any of these tie in but it's worth looking into.
