Thank you for your offer of a lookup. That is very kind of you.
Reuben Jones married Mary Nock Jan. 11, 1768 in Berwick Maine. Reuben was born 1747 and died in 1833 in Essex County, New York. I would love to have any information on contemporary Jones- Nock (Knox?) of that era if there were any.
I believe this is the same Reuben Jones who married (2) Eunice and had sons Eli, John, Moses, and Reuben Jr.
Dr.Reuben Jones, Sr.was born 1747 and died in 1833 in Essex County, New York. He lived in Vermont for many years.
"Dr. Reuben Jones,of Rockingham and afterwards of Chester Vermont, was the earliest and perhaps the most active of the new state men on the east side of the mountains (American Revolution). He was active in stirring up the people to arrest the loyal court after the Westminster massacre, riding express and hatless to Dummerston on this errand. He gave history the answer to the misrepresentation of the official reports, with his “relation” of the affair. He was an efficient member of each of the Vermont conventions, beginning with that of Sept. 25, 1776, and being secretary of several of them. He represented Rockingham in the first four Legislatures and also Chester for one year. He was one of the most ardent and uncompromising whigs in the state. His later years were spent in deep poverty and in dodging back and forth between New Hampshire and Vermont to avoid imprisonment for debt. Once when under arrest popular sympathy forced his release, for which he and two friends were indicted in the Windsor county court."
