LEWIS JONES ca 1632 to Watertown
Lewis JONES appeared in Watertown ca 1630 and married into a very "old" family: STONE.
Some genealogists have linked him to various English, Welsh, etc families but without
sufficient proof to suit my standards. It has even been said that he
came here through the Barbadoes and a family "crest" is provided which is entirely
bogus. Having spent 25 years searching for the origins of this man myself, and
unearthing everything I can find about him, I am afraid I will go to my grave not knowing
much about him.

BEGINNING AND END OF MY JONES SURNAME LINE
Having been blessed with a most prolific surname like "JONES",
and further blessed with a common firstname like "MARY", small
wonder I have devoted a great many years to unraveling my
genealogy! Fortunately, my forebears in the direct JONES
line from firstcomer, Lewis, to my only sibling, Helen, can be
visited in one day by going from their final resting places in
Watertown to Lunenburg to Greenfield, all in the state of
Massachusetts. The road from my lone firstcomer LEWIS JONES,
genealogically speaking, produced some interesting facts.
The total years elapsed from Lewis to me were 320, divided as
follows: Lewis 36, Josiah 27, William 30, William Jr 27,
John 49, William 35, Herbert 42, Frank 38. Thus the average for
a generation was 36 years.
***** Generation # 1 -- Lewis produced only one son to carry on the
JONES surname, had 21 grandchildren and added to the direct line
the surnames STONE, CLARKE and WHITNEY. ****** Generation # 2 --
Josiah produced six sons to carry on the name, had over seventy
grandchildren and added to my direct line the surnames: TREADWAY,
HAYNES, COOLIDGE, BREWER, WOOLSON, MOORE, WARREN, MIXER, GARFIELD,
FLAGG and 4 unknowns. ****** Generation # 3 -- Josiah Jr produced
four sons to carry on the JONES surname, had twenty-nine grandchildren
and added the surnames: BARNES, GOODENOW, WORTHINGTON, WILLIAMS,
BROWN, ALLEN. ****** Generation # 4 -- William produced four sons
to carry on the name, had thirty-one grandchildren plus SILENCE SMITH's
children and added to my direct line the surnames: LOCKE, CUTTER,
FOSTER, FOSKETT, WHITMORE, BARRETT, BENNETT, SMITH.
****** Generation # 5 -- William Jr produced three sons to carry on
the JONES surname, had at least nine grandchildren and added the
surnames: STONE, FARWELL, POLLARD, two HOUGHTONs, ELLIOTT, LIVERMORE.
****** Generation # 6 -- John produced four sons to carry on the
surname and had so far uncounted grandchildren, and added the
surnames:TURNER, OAKHAM,CURTIS, FARWELL, HUGHES. ****** Generation
# 7 -- William produced only one son to carry on the surname, had two
grandchildren and added the surnames HUGHES, THOM, PILLSBURY, BASSETT.
****** Generation # 8 -- Herbert Mortimer produced only one son to
carry on the JONES surname and had but two grand daughters and added
the surname BIGELOW. Thus the end of MY JONES SURNAME LINE!!!
