Isaac C. Jones (1814-1895), a broker, married Sarah W. Noodneff (1820-1900) in 1840, Pennsylvania. The Quaker couple had 3 children: Woodruff Jones, Sarah Jones, Hannah Jones.

Hannah Perot Morris (1854-1931) was a Quaker minister, appointed in 1909, and member of Germantown Monthly Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Morris was a delgate of the Meeting of the State Federation of Churches in Harrisburg, as well as the first woman to be appointed to the Germantown Representative Meeting. In 1907, she wrote a biography on her father, "Glimpses of the Life of Samuel Morris." Morris advocated for woman's suffrage and aided in the assimilation of Italian immigrants. She was the daughter of Haverford College alum Samuel Morris and Lydia Spencer Morris.

This collection contains a Golden Wedding commemoration booklet, with poetry written by Thomas Wistar, marking the 50th anniversery of Isaac C. Jones and Sarah W. Jones in 1890. In addition, the collection also features Hannah Perot Morris's journal from her voyage to England and France in 1904 with her father, Samuel Morris.
