About Jonas Eaton, Sr.

I believe that his name was JONAS. That is what is in the records for the founders of Reading and he has a son Jonas Jr listed.

Jonas Eaton. Born on 23 Oct 1617 in Staple, Kent. Jonas died in Reading, MA, on 24 Feb 1673; he was 55. One source says Jonas came over in 1637 as a servant of William Green. Jonas of Watertown, removed to Reading. Jonas lived on the northwest part of Cowdrey’s hill in Reading. He was a freeman in 1653, and a selectman. ca 1642 Jonas married Grace [Eaton]. Grace first married Jonas Eaton, second Henry Silsbee of Lynn.
