Researching Solomon Jones Family
Solomon Jones was born December 21, 1783 Delaware, New York. He joined The First Baptist Church, Deposit May 27, 1825 and he died June 1843 Hancock.
I located this on Ancestry but his name was misspelled. Letters of Administration June 17, 1843 Granted to Electa Jones, Jonathan Jones, John Low, on the estate of Salmon Jones, late of Delaware Co., decd. Electa was his second wife she was the widow of Ebenezer Darrow. Rachel was born April 21, 1781 bapt. February 3, 1830 at The First Baptist Church, Deposit. Rachel died 1835 Hancock. Solomon and Rachel were married on July 30, 1803 Hancock. On the bios it seems to have more regarding Joseph Darrow son of Electa then about Solomon Jones himself which was not useful to me except for the fact Solomon married second widow Electa Darrow.
The children born to them I can positively identify:
Jonathan Jones born cir 1804 married Delilah Griffin; her sister Cynthia Griffin married Lewis M. Travis He was the son of Thomas Travis and Rachel Bethiah Jones.
Esther Jones October 6, 1805 Delaware County, New York married William Walworth son of Gilbert Walworth and Dorcas Travis. Note: She was sister to Thomas Travis
Christiana Jones born March 30, 1807 Hancock, Delaware, New York, married Ebenezer Wheeler Leonard son of David Leonard and Elizabeth Sexton
Bethiah T. Jones born December 12, 1812 Hancock, Delaware, New York, married September 26, 1835 Hancock, Delaware County, New York William Aylsworth Merchant son of Gurdon Merchant and Rachel Aylsworth
Sarah Jones November 1, 1814 Hancock, Delaware County, New York, married December 31, 1837 Hancock, Delaware County, New York to Charles Eugene Fish son of Ashbel "Asa" Fish and Mary Polly
Now I believe Solomon and Rachel Jones were the two youngest children of Richard Jones and Sarah Mann.
Richard and Sarah sold property to Solomon on 6 May 1811 it was witnessed by a David Jones, Richard Morecrafte Now David Jones was another son of Richard Jones and Sarah he lived right beside Richard Jones in 1810 Hancock, Delaware, New York, and The Richard Morecrafte was the son of John Morecraft and Esther Jones also a daughter of Richard and Sarah.
It is just hard for me to believe that as long as Richard Jones and his family lived there that there seems to be not much relating to his family, but a bit of tidbits here and there. I can positively identify 10 children born to Richard Jones and Sarah.
I would like to know more about Solomon Jones, and if possible the last name of Rachel he married on July 30, 1803 Hancock, Delaware County, New York, and where they were buried. Also a full date of death for Rachel wife of Solomon and a full date of death for Solomon as well. I also know that Rachel and Solomon had another daughter born cir 1809 and two other sons.
This Richard M. Jones whom married Isabella caught my attention if we knew what the M. stood for maybe helpful. He was born cir 1811 Delaware County, New York died November 19, 1884 and is buried Margaretville Cemetery, Margaretville, Delaware County, New York. They names one of their daughters Christiana which also caught my attention. If the M stood for Mann then this could be a missing son.
Any help would be very much appreciated. -- Cherri Timmer
