Summary
Genealogical research papers, 1991-2004, kept by Arthur Jones while researching the Overton family, primarily Cromwellian Major General Robert Overton (d. ca. 1678) of England and William Overton (b. ca. 1638), who emigrated to Virginia in 1669. Much of the research centers on the question of whether this particular William Overton was Robert Overton's son, and if so, whether he was conceived illegitimately. Correspondence, abstracts of various parish records, genealogical charts, extracts from biographical resources, copies and transcripts of wills, and maps make up the bulk of materials, most of which were gathered from British repositories. A folder of name files also contains information on families bearing the following surnames: Arlington, Bennet, Cutler, Dade, Elton, Gardiner, Jessey, and Waters. The donor's arrangement of the files has generally been maintained. Many of the papers reflect Jones's collaboration with Nan Overton West in her research for the book THE OVERTONS: 700 YEARS WITH ALLIED FAMILIES FROM ENGLAND TO VIRGINIA, KENTUCKY, AND TEXAS (LVA call number CS71.O96 1997)
