Records for Thomas Augustine Jones

Some notes:

Thomas was naturalized long before 1900, so I was surprised that his first entry in the registration books was 1907 after the earthquake and fire.  There is a gap between 1908 and 1912, when he went to live with his daughter, Josephine Pohley in San Francisco.  Before 1920, he moved in with his daughter, Margaret Jackson’s family.  They lived in Oakland.  I did not find any voter registration entries for him during that time.  Thomas died in 1923.
