In Reply to: Mary Todhunter/JamesJones by Mary M. Cook of 200

Mary,

I am keeping my fingers crossed that this is the couple I have been searching for over 20 years.

My Ancestor Joshua Jones married Hannah Todhunter. She "married out of meeting" according to the Fairfax Quaker Monthly Meeting records of VA. A few years later Mary Todhunter was mentioned as leaving the Society and all it said was that she had married a Jones.

On the deeds of Loudoun Co, VA James Jones was listed with a wife Mary. I "assumed" that this was Mary younger sister of Hannah, but I never had any proof.

James was the older brother of Joshua, and both were the sons of William Jones who died in Loudoun Co, VA in 1770. Hannah and Mary were the children of John Todhunter and Margaret Evans of Chester Co, VA. He also died 1770 in Loudoun.

If your Hollingsworth family were descended from Valentine Hollingsworth, Quaker of Chester Co, PA, there are connections between John Todhunter and that family also.

Anxious to hear from you.

Rosemary
