Above is a screen shot of some of my results from searching today.  Searching for Hugh Jones in Alabama, I found a family history book that gives a complete genealogy of my second great grandmother Gennetta Woolley.  This included detailed information about her family along with a history of the settlement of Bibb and Chilton counties of Alabama.  I can use this information to fine tune the date that Hugh's father moved from Georgia to Alabama.

Quite a find!!!!

Happy ancestor hunting.
