Dennis Jones Easley - Captain   
Was born abt 1830,the son of Richard Millington Easley and Martha Jones. He married Sarah Jane Carothers. Had children Mary E., Millington, and Dennis Jones. One son, Dennis Jones, moved to Texas where he died in 1944. I am unsure of his (Capt. Dennis Jones') death date; though some researchers think that he died in 1866, I have found no evidence to support (or refute) it. If anyone can help fill in the missing pieces of his family and military life, I would appreciate it.
