One of the sites I looked at stated that the town of Jonesville-on-the-Grande is a fictional town located in Southern Texas near Fort Jones. Fort Jones is also  fictional, but based upon another fort located in Texas, Fort Brown.

It is a small town on the Rio Grande. Although it is fictionalized, it is in the area of El Paso. I don't know for sure, but I think there are enough details to indicate it might be in the same area as the modern day city of El Paso, Texas.
