About James Jones

James Jones, son of Josiah Jones, and grandson of Lewis Jones, was born in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusett on Sept. 4, 1679. He married SARAH MOORE of East Sudbury, Massachusetts. He died in Weston, Middesex Co., Massachusetts on Sept. 14, 1770 at the age of 91; Sarah died in Weston, on Sept. 28, 1774 at the age of 90.

Inscription: Sept. ye 15th 1770; Capt. James Jones, Aged 90 Years (Note: The Town Records and the record of Revd. Samuel Woodward give Sept. 14 as the date of his death).

Children were: James (1707; Abigail Garfield), Sarah (10/15/1708; m. William Robinson), Lydia (12/17/1710; m. Capt. Stephen Jones), Ephraim (12/11/1712), Elizabeth (3/25/1715; m. Capt. Samuel Baldwin), Mary (3/25/1716-17 m. Elisha Flagg), Abigail (3/14/1719; m. David Sanderson), Catherine (4/23/1721; m. Rev. Joseph Davis), Aaron (6/10/1723; m. Silence Cutting; m. Elizabeth Prescott; m. 3rd time ?), Solomon (1/30/1726; d. 8/11/1741), and Isaac (9/29/1728; d. aged 86; m. Anne Cutler; m. Widow Mary Willis).

  • IT IS NOTED that children Lydia and Ephraim are born same year 6 days apart...I believe that they were twins but do not at this time have a single date to enter.Other discrepancies are noted from his wife's memorial on FAG. Inquiry has been made to them on 7/27/2013.
