Notes for Gabriel JONES III
Gabriel followed his brother-in-law, Benjamin Wigginton, to Bedford Co. VA. It may be that John Wigginton, his father-in-law, owned land in Bedford which his children settled on.
Later on Gabriel and Jane resided in Harper's Ferry, VA. A biography of their son, Seth Slaughter Jones mentions residence there. However, by 1807 they were back in Culpeper Co. because Gabriel is listed amoung the justices of the county summoned to the next court meeting to decide on repairing/ building courthouse.
Gabriel was the only son of the Revolutionary officer to remain in Virginia.
War of 1812 - Private in Captain John C. Pryor's troop of the Calvalry, 4th Regiment, attached to the 2nd Regiment of the Virginia Militia.
