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.

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!!!
