Bonjour,
Je suis à la recherche de mon grand père mais je possède de très minces informations.
C'est un peu comme une bouteille à la mer car on ne sait jamais...
Voici ces informations :
- Prénom et Nom : Humphrey Jones
Il était basé dans la commune de Hagondange en Moselle (57) durant l'année 1945, mon père étant né en Janvier 1946.
Il occupait également aux États Unis un poste de vaguemestre à la maison Blanche.
Je suis preneur de toutes informations aussi insignifiantes soient elles !
Merci pour votre aide
Laurent

Hi (hopefully you can read English as I can read some French, but cannot write it very well)

As far as I can see there were only 2 Humphrey Jones in WW2 who were Afro American
1 – Humphrey Bernard Jones born 1911 – Originally from San Antonio, Bexar cty in Texas
2 – Lindell Humphrey Jones b abt 1926 – Originally from Gifford, Hot Spring cty in Arkansas

Some more information (Hopefully without too many typing mistakes):
#1
Humphrey Bernard Jones born 15 Dec 1911 TX, died 23 Dec 1998, buried Wiltwyck Cemetery, Pine Grove Ave, Kingston, New York
Father: Charles/Charley Henry Jones born 25 Mar 1866 San Antonio, Bexar TX, died 15 Feb 1927 San Antonio, Bexar TX, buried Masonic Cemetery (son of Charles H Jones & Ellen Graham), Occupation: Railway Porter and Instructor
Mother: Belle Wiedman/Wideman (I am not sure if this is her maiden name) born abt1870 TX, died abt April 1959 New York City
Around 1950 Humphrey married Melvina Armstrong born 30 Sep 1910 Bainbridge, Georgia, died 29 Nov 2013 Kingston, Ulster NY (daughter of Archie King Armstrong & Manasser).
No children were mentioned in Malvina’s obituary, so it seems that Humphrey might not have had children.

Although Humphrey was the only child of Charles and Belle, there were children from previous relationships i.e. half brothers and half sisters

It is not clear whether his mother Belle Weidman/Wideman had been married previously, but she’d had at least 3 other children as follows:
Elsie Belle b abt nov 1888 TX
Louis/Luis b abt 1890 TX
Myrtle Rose b 2 Sep 1896 TX, d 10 Aug 1985 Nueces TX

His father Charles H Jones had previously been married to Louisa Carter b abt May 1866 Mexico or Texas. They had at least the following children:
Charles Alexander Jones b abt 1 Feb 1890 San Antonio, Bexar TX, d 21 Oct 1973 Houston, Harris TX, bur Golden Gate Cem, Occ: Postal Clerk for the US Government
Percy L Jones b 9 Jun 1892 Texas, d 9 nov 1992, bur Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington Virginia, Occ: Major in US AIR FORCE
Helen Louise Jones b abt 6 Apr 1895 San Antonio, Bexar TX, d 27 Jan 1911 San Antonio, Bexar TX
Clarence T Jones b 20 Nov 1897 TX, d 5 Feb 1974 Alameda, California
Theldon Earl Jones b abt 22 Aug 1900 TX, d 3 may 1963 Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, Occ: Catholic Priest
Earnest Milburn Jones b 9 Jan 1902 TX, d 9 Feb 1967 Corpus Christi, Nueces TX, Occ: Hotel bell hop
Note: Here is a photo of Theldon: https://server16018.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/p9020coll008&CISOPTR=5918&CISOBOX=1&REC=7

Lindell Humphrey Jones born 24 apr 1926 Malvern, Hot Spring County, Arkansas, died 15 July 1998 (most likely in Detroit, Michigan)
Father: Humphrey Jones born abt 1876 Arkansas
Mother: Ada Bell Lee abt 1886 Arkansas …. Humphrey Jones married Ada Bell Lee in Hot Spring cty, Arkansas on 20 Nov 1907.
Brothers and Sisters:
Velma Jones b abt 1909
James Jones b abt 1915
Alvin Jones b abt 1917
Millnas/Milne (daughter) Jones b 04 Oct 1922 Arkansas, d 03 Nov 1969 Chicago, Cook IL, bur Washington cem, Homewood, IL
Alice Jones b abt 1924


on 24 Jun1950 Lindell Humphrey Jones married Juanita Ernestine Williams (born 11 Sep 1929 Lyons, Toombs, Georgia, died 21 Sep 1988, daughter of Ernest W Williams and Alzadia Wilkerson). The marriage took place in Detroit, Wayne MI. This seems to have been Juanita’s second marriage: on 19 Jun 1946 she had married Jesse Brown.
I suspect that Lindell had a few children e.g. Ricardo Cortez Jones 1951-2007.


regards, Sylvia
