Surname Saturday JONES, Dad's family in Honor of Father's Day

 Jones, This line comes from England not Wales.  Christopher JONES Sr. owned a shipping fleet one of largest in the world at time of his son's birth. Christopher JONES Jr. was a  son of his. He was also the Captain of the Mayflower long ago. Christopher's family was English not Welsh, Abbey said.

Story goes. Wife was aboard the Mayflower with him. When they went back to England of course he got sick and later died. When wife remarried it was to the man that purchased Christopher Jones JR Fleet.
It seems both Sr and Jr died fairly young. Have in file from Abbey in England.
The new husband brought Teague back to United States of today, English Colony then.  The wife really liked the Mass. area.  Did not want to stay in England.

Teague born Nov 1620 in Mass sourced in American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI)

Teague himself married an Indian woman of prominence in local tribe. Rahamanha.
 They had several children: one daughter ma a Nickerson, Josiah, Samuel, Jeremiah and Teague Jr.
 I believe there were at least two more sons and 1 more daughter proving is very hard.
   Josiah b 1652 in Yarmouth Mass, marries Elizabeth Berry dau of Richard and Alice Berry.

This JONES line is the lineage of my Dad Ray Dee Jones Sr dcd.  born Waterloo, IA died Santa Rosa, Ca.
He has been gone a  long time and I miss him still today.

  1. Nice story. Probably wrong... definitely not a Mayflower baby or Plymouth baby - no record in Bradford or other contemporaneous writings.

    AGBI is not a source - it's a collection of unproven facts submitted by wishful thinkers to the Boston Transcript newspaper. 5 entries in AGBI claiming Teague Jones birth year from 1610 to 1650. Which one is right? How do you know?

    A good Teague Jones summary is at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~barbpretz/PS05/PS05_024.HTM

    Can you document descent from Teague Jones in original sources or authoritative derivative sources?

  2. Correct not either, I never even implied that.
    My data come from England. Much US material on him printed is conjecture except for court papers which is factual.
    Yes I can document. I do not print unless I can document.

  3. Hello, my wife is a descendant of Teague Jones. His daughter Ruhamah married Joseph Nickerson and my wife is a descendant form the Nickersons. I am having difficulty connecting Teague Jones to Christopher Jones and am interested in any documentation that you might be willing to share.
    Thanks,
    Jim Graves

  5. I recently got information on her line also. Never expected it. I will post it in due time.
    I like to make viable statements, so checking things out. Jim Graves I would love to find my Nickerson cousin that lived in IDAHO when I first started this search. He also worked for the Golden Gate Forum after hours.

  7. Thank you so much for your excellent information on Christopher Jones and his son. Greatly looking forward to anything additional you may be able to contribute in the future on Teague's wife. One has to wonder with what things were like back in those times how well she was treated in that community of new settlers who had so recently warred with the Indians.
    I am assisting some friends with their family history who are descended from Teague's son, Jerimiah Jones, and Jerimiah's daughter Elizabeth Jones who married Robert Nickerson. Appreciate your work, and sharing it with us.

  9. Hi, I just received DNA results and am now going online searching other descendants of Teague Jones to see if they have traces of Native American. I, too, am a direct descendant of Teague and his son Josiah. My results show 1% Native American and 1% South Asian (Native Americans rumored to be of ancient Asian origin). I am caucasian looking and mostly European/Scandinavian. The only known ancestor of anything non-European on my tree is the rumored Native Americans through Teague's marriage. Apparently he married a woman who was possibly part Native American as her mother's name was Margaret, so says my family tree. Teague's in-laws, Ruhamah's parents, were Samoset Osamequin and Margaret Amatachee. Samoset's father was the famous chief Wasanegin Massasoit. I am interested in knowing if other descendants of Teague Jones are also showing traces of Native American. So far I have uploaded DNA to Ancestry and MyHeritage. Looking forward to seeing other descendants match up with me in the database.
