According to Virginia Stone Windle in her book: "The Way it Was in Henry County and Martinsville, Virginia" published in 1996.
Benjamin Jones was born in 1752 in Culpeper County, VA and married Elizabeth De Remi (Reamey) in 1776 in Prince William County. They moved to Henry County in 1792.

Judith Park America Hill wrote in her book, "History of Henry County" published in 1925, that Elizabeth de Remi was the great grand-daughter of a Huguenot refugee, Jean de Remi, of Picardy, France who came to Charleston in 1690. The couple lived for two years in Rockingham County, North Carolina where Dr. Jones operated the Troublesome iron Works before moving to Henry County , where Elizabeth's brothers Daniel and Samuel had already settled. Family lore tells how Mrs. Jones carried her baby in her arms and guided her horse on their journey to Virginia
