Looking for family connection of Jones in Great Barr. W. Helon and wife Annie Elizabeth Jones (Formerly Smith) 1938 Lived in 10 Merrion's close. (Also lived in Australian Arms as a house changed from a PH) not sure of the year. Children, Lil, Ann, Martha, John, Violet, Gladys, Clara, William (Billy) Mona, Dennis. Thomas.
W.Helon Jones 1939 census says that he was born in 1873. and Annie was born in 1893.birth cert. Born in Blakenhall, Walsall. she died may 1957 buried at St. Mary`s church chapel lane, GT. Barr. She would have been 17 when married in 1910 but her marriage cert tells me she was 20. William was 23. Trying to find where William was born no record of a such person so far. He died 1964, Buried in Ryecroft cemetery Walsall. true fact.

Any connection to the Harry Jones living at 37 Merrion's Close in 1939?

He appears to be the illegitimate son of one of the daughters (possibly Elizabeth) of a Willam & Sarah Jones.

Coincidently (or not) they are living in Pig Lane in 1881, same road as the Australian Arms.
