  1. Do your have any information on James Monroe Jones (gunsmith)? We have a rifle made by him on display at Fort Henry National Historic Site and would like to add more details about his history.

  2. His Grandfather was Charles Jones and came on a slave ship into North Carolina. His father was Allen was born into slavery. He managed to pay for his family freedom and they moved to Ohio. Lots of info on internet. He became a gunsmith and moved to Canada and built guns out of Chatham, Ontario. in 1849. He won the Grand Provincial Exhibition for his guns in Montreal in 1860.
