Elizabeth Jones marriage to Charles Wright.
I have just been looking at your family tree on the Australian Pioneer Family site, particularly relating to the children of William Jones 1819 -- 1901 and Martha Leeder.
You have listed Elizabeth Jones, born in 1862 as their eighth child, and have her married to a Charles Wright at Picton in Western Australia.
I do believe you have made a mistake here as I believe that the Elizabeth Jones married to Charles Wright at Picton was in fact the daughter of William Frederick Jones 1826 -- 1871 and the Rose Ann Breen.
I am fairly certain on these facts as I am connected to this William Frederick Jones family but if you could please check your information it would be appreciated.
With my best regards, John Wallis Bell
