  2. I agree that's a closed capital J. Doesn't look like the P in the 16 year old's name. My guess, also, is Wesley Jones.

  3. Good catch about the "J" versus the "P" in Permelia. I will say that Ancestry.com doesn't index this name as "Jones."

  4. Wesley Jones - It will not be the first time that Ancestry.com have incorrectly indexed the name.

  6. Wesley Jones. Some of the indexes are very amusing though....bordering on hysterical
