I am going to regress for a minute. How many of you know the early lineage of your Jones lineage?
Many years of research and England supplied me with the answer.
Christopher Jones Sr had Christopher Jones Jr. and he was raised in England. His father was a shipbuilder and owner according to what little I have been given.
Christopher was a 1/3 owner in the ship. He was known as Ship Owner. Christopher's marriage to Josian Thompson Grey produced Teague. He had many other children and it appears only one may have survived past 15 years of age from previous marriage. Christopher had pneamonia and died from it after his trip to the New World. I received data from English Records to support all of this.
Much of which went when back up drive crashed. But have some of it. I also did this with two other distant cousins that can confirm this data. One of our researchers is trying to track down this other son that had not died. WE have about 8 steady JONES researchers adding to our families over all data. We would love your help.
Christopher Jones was the Captain of the Mayflower. His son Teague was born about Nov.1620 in England and came to the New World prior to 1645 as near as I can learn. He fought against the Narraganset with buddy, later the father of his daughter in law. Richard Berry.
Much he was accused of in the Plymouth Plantation was reversed by a Judge many years later. I have read the Towns Minutes with much shock at how they treated their fellow citizens.
Teague's wife: Ruhamah's/Rahamana 1624-1661.
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.
Samoset (ca. 1590–1653) was the first Native American to make contact with the Pilgrims. On March 16, 1621, the settlers were more than surprised when Samoset strolled straight through the middle of the encampment at Plymouth Colony and greeted them in English, which he had begun to learn from an earlier group of Englishmen to arrive in what is now Maine. (He was a friend of Squanto.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samoset Tisquantum (better known as Squanto) (c. 1580s – November 1622) was a Patuxet. He was the Native American who assisted the Pilgrims after their first winter in the New World and was integral to their survival. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squanto
YES this is our Ancestor. I so want to go to Mass for the 400 year reunion next year 2020.
Yes some of the family married back into the tribe.
Next post will go back to Calvin Fay Jones and Hannah Julian Young JONES, No. 12
Please if you wish a copy let me know so I have a track of whom is looking and helping.
**Corrected the birth date of Teague Jones also. 1620 and arrived prior to 1645.
