Nancy Bellzona's Picture Book

The work in compiling and recording this information is dedicated to family, of immediate and extended. Immediate for putting up with a mother's time sacrificed, and extended family for generously sharing privileged information, this over a period of ten years.

However, the most of my appreciation goes to my father, Lee Otis Jones who jealously guarded these old photographs and to my mother, Velma Louise Pensoneau Jones who gave them to me. She being a great-granddaughter of Pasquel Pensoneau has a dignified family history also.

Donna C. Flood 1996
Revised edition 2000

Compiled and written by Donna Colleen Jones, Mrs. Rodney Lee Flood. Donna is the granddaughter of Nancy Bellzona Collins Jones and Joseph Hubbard Jones. Donna is the daughter of Lee Otis and Velma Pensoneau Jones, great-granddaughter of William Stephens and Mary Ann DeWitt Jones. Donna is the granddaughter of Elizebeth, Me-Tah-Ing-Gay, Little Cook, Pensoneau, Hernandez and her first husband Narcisse Pensoneau.

Narcisse is the son of Sephen Pensoneau. Stephen Pensoneau is the son of Pasquelle Pensoneau, who was full French. Pasquelle married a Kickapoo woman and served as an interpreter for that tribe on the payroll of the United States Government. Pasquelle worked for Aster as a fur trader heading up one of his areas. They have a family museum with all their paper work out of St. Louis. Pasquelle's brother, Louis Pensoneau was an attorney and saw to the writing of Pasquelle's biography. This information and paperwork was shared with me by a descendant, Roland Kulla.

Donna is the great-granddaughter of Oo-haun-shing-gah, Samuel Little Cook and his wife Esther Broken Jaw, Little Cook.

In the first edition Joseph H. Jones was listed as Joseph Herbert Jones according to a daughter-in-law. This revised edition will show him as Joseph Hubbard Jones because the notes left by his daughter, Gertrude, show him to be Hubbard and because he had an Uncle Joseph Hubbard Jones.

The name Hubbard is probably Herbert with the soft southern accent which was written as it sounded.

Computer work of format and the publishing is by Rodney Lee Flood, husband to the author.
