WILLIAM JONES' FAMILY "William Jones was born at Ellicott Mills, Maryland, in May 1763 and died in the latter part of March, 1862. He located in the neighborhood of Ginger Hill in Washington County, a few years before the Whiskey Insurrection, on a farm still owned by his son William. He was a blacksmith by trade.. When the U.S. Troops were sent out to disperse the insurgents, they halted near his farm, from whence they were ordered to return as the Insurrection was over. While in camp, he shod some of the Government horses. He was loyal to the government and took no part in the Insurrection. By his first wife he had eleven children, five sons and six daughters,--viz., John, Elijah, Jesse, Samuel, and William--Rebecca, Delilah, Polly, Ruth, Rose and Ann. At an advanced age, he married Mrs. Jane Phillips. They had no children. John was the founder of Jonestown in Fallowfield Township where he lived most of his life. He was generally engaged in farming..." p. 156 - Old & New Monongahela by J.S. Van Voorhis The following cemetery census was taken in 1950 by Mrs. E. C.
