Further research has raised questions on my earlier conclusions concerning the marriage of Benjamin Arendell and Rebecca Jones. The DAR Patriot Index states that Benjamin Arendell married Rebecca Jones, and that Benjamin Arendell died in 96 District, South Carolina in 1784. This information is not correct. Another Benjamin Arendell (sometimes spelled Arendall) who also lived in South Carolina was the Revolutionary War ancester whose records (dated after 1784) were used for proof of service. That Benjamin Arendall might have married Rebecca Jones, but I don't know for certain where he came from (possibly Virginia) or whether his wife was related to the Sugars family. I am descended from the Benjamin Arendell who died in 1784 (whose wife's first name was also Rebecca). My Benjamin Arendell's family lived in Granville County, NC at the same time as the Jones family. Evidence indicates he married Rebecca Sarratt rather than Rebecca Jones. Sorry for the incorrect information.
