On September 8, 1943, in Minden Louisiana, a son was born to Beulah Mae McGlothen and Clemon Jones Sr. He was named Clemon Jones Jr.

Clemon Jones “Sweet Red” met Shirley Ann Frazier the love of his life.” On August 5, 1962, they were united in Holy Matrimony, and to this union five children were born.

He confessed Christ at an early age and united with New Light Baptist Church where he was a member.
