25/06/2021 Pte. Francis Jones Francis Jones was living in the Dungannon area when he enlisted at the Moy Fair in September 1915.

25/06/2021 Pte. Francis Jones However, the 1901 census does list an 8 year old Francis Jones living with his aunt and uncle in Minterburn, not far from the family home. This is only Frank/Francis Jones in Tyrone.
25/06/2021 Pte. Francis Jones The family lived in Cronghill, Aughnacloy, County Tyrone. No mention of Francis can be found with in either the 1901 or 1911 census as living with the family.
25/06/2021 Pte. Francis Jones Francis was born in 1893, probably in England. No GRONI can be found for his birth. Even this date is disputed, as newspaper reports at the time of his death state he was 19, giving his birth around 1897.
25/06/2021 Pte. Francis Jones Thereís no direct evidence to prove that Francis was part of this Edward and Elizabeth Jones family. However, the geographical evidence is strong (Minterburn area) and the 1911 census records they had nine living children (of which only eight are listed)

23/06/2021 Pte. Thomas John Johnston The 1911 census lists Thomas J as age 19, a farm labourer, living at house 47 in Donaghanie, Camowen, Tyrone. Presumably he was working for the Lyons family that he was living with.
