Documentation:
On the 1850 Georgia Muscogee Census a Mrs. JONES is listed
"next door" to Jesse NELSON.  She is 55 and there is no record of birth
place for her or her sons David, Ebenezer and John W.  They are of
military age.  I found a David JONES and Ebenezer JONES in the 20th
Georgia Infantry, which
did muster out of Muscogee with other counties in the military district.
This David was captured and joined the US forces.  Ebenezer did not leave
a paper trail.  Both were in Company I and joined on the same date. John
W NELSON  may have served in CSA  7th Regiment, Confederate Cavalry
(Claiborne's Partisan Rangers Regiment.  There are other soldiers in
Company I with the surname of Jones.
The second thing I noticed was that in church records for the NELSON and
WALL families, there was a note that Mary JONES, a member of Mt Gilead
Baptist Church in Muscogee County died in 1864.  Polly or Mary Nelson
JONES was a Baptist, joined Mt. Paron Primitive Baptist Church of
Crawford County, Georgia 06/07/1829 by letter from Mt. Zion Church in
Jones County and lettered out 09/02/1831.  On the Mt. Paron Church roll
there is the following note: Jones, Jesse Brother  joined 1829-06-07 by
Letter and left 1831-12-31 by Letter and his wife's name was Mary .
======================================
I have not found the sons on another census.
