For over 12 years there have been three people seeking information on Benjamin Jones. Benjamin was born in Virginia in about 1766. He is found in Greene county Ohio in the 1850 census living with his son Lewis. The census lists him as being 82. Records show he married Susannah or Susan Murphy in Virginia Dec 11 1792. Benjamin and Susan are then found as the parents of Jesse Jones of Ross county Ohio. In a historical publication on Jesse Jones, it tells of Benjamin and Susan settling in Warren county about 1808. The 1830 census for Warren County Ohio lists Benjamin with two people in his household between 62 and 70 years of age. This would put Susan or Susannah’s death between 1830 and 1850. I can only find on burial for a Benjamin Jones with the dates close but it lists him being buried in Buried Minear Cemetery Ross County Ohio. This could be correct as in Aug 1839 he purchased 32.61 acres of land in Ross county. Benjamin’s son Lewis was married twice and over all between paternal and step children raised 19 of them to adulthood. If anyone can add to this Jones line, you would make I feel a lot of people very happy. The information I have listed is thirteen years of work. Please do not get me wrong, I have loved every second of it. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
