Note
In the 1920 census, the recorder at Ancestry.com mistakenly records "Jones" as "James" for Thomas P. Jones. The enumerator incorrectly spelled Araminta as "Arminter". These are indeed Thomas P. and Araminta Jones as proved by their residence in the area called Baxter just outside the city of Harlan. LCJones - 11/23/2013
