"The Harriet Jones is listed among Stephen Jones' children in the LDS Ancestral File matches closely to Harriet (nee Jones) Ward Franconi, widow of Zebediah Ward and Lewis Franconi, b. bet. 1802 and 1804 in Ohio. Confirming evidence are the affidavit of the witness Jno Lewis, dated 1855 in Cincinnati, OH, which states that Harriet Franconi's father was Stephen Jones, and the fact that she was residing at Aaron Hutton, the same person that a son of Benjamin Jones resided with in 1870, stating in a letter that he was living with his aunt. Harriet named a son Stephen Benjamin Ward." Referenced from:
