The Jones family will next be noticed. The writer has some difficulty in ascertaining and assigning
properly the remote ancestry of the Jones family in Marion County. To the writer three old Jones - John,
Bryant, and Thomas M Jones were known; but Bishop Gregg, in his history, goes further back that the
writer's knowledge, and if Bishop Gregg is correct, the father of the three above was named John Jones
a brother of the noted Tory, captain Joseph Jones, who led the Tory party to the killing of Colonel Kolb.
In April, 1781. John Jones had two sons, John D and Samuel; daughters, Sallie and Elizabeth.
Bryant Jones married Elizabeth Berry, daughter of old Henry Berry the first. Sons; Henry B Jones,
Frederick D. Jones and James E. Jones. Daughters: Elizabeth, Nancy and Mary (Polly).
Thomas M Jones emigrated with his family to Alabama more than fifty years ago.
A sister of John and Bryant Jones married old John Blackman, became his second wife.
Another sister married Christopher Dew the second.
