Capital One NA filed a lawsuit on Jan. 16 in the Jefferson County District Court against Johnny "Tyrone" Jones, The Unknown Heirs at Law of the deceased W.C. Jones, The Unknown Heirs at Law of the deceased Uvonne Jones and The Unknown Heirs at Law of the deceased Michael Jones in regards to 3823 Memorial Blvd., Port Arthur, Texas 77642, citing an order for foreclosure.
