Something that is very interesting about O.S. aside from the CSA record, he was a preacher or at least preached. He formed his own church and the congregation later threw him out of the church. I have never been able to find out why, but it has to be a good story....getting thrown out of your own church.

Oliver Smith Jones was born on August 18, 1841 in Gwinnett County, Georgia and died on June 27, 1922 in Prescott, Nevada County, Arkansas.
