    Your title is not quite correct – Jones was not a Franklin resident. He was the legal ward of Major (later Lt. Col.) William W. Bradley of the 7th, who was a resident of Berryville (near Cynthiana), Ky, so it’s probably safe to assume that Jones was also a resident of Berryville.

    I’ve been doing research into the altercation between Wm. Bradley and Lt. Col. Thomas Vimont that resulted in Vimont’s death by Bradley’s hand. I have purchased the Court Martial file from the National Archives, and would be more than happy to share information with you or other researchers.
