192. Samuel Jones , son of Samuel Jones and Abigail Rogers, was born on 11 Dec 1762 in Pemberton, New Jersey and died on 28 Sep 1849, at age 86.

General Notes: Samuel Jones the younger married Elizabeth Woolston 7 Dec 1786. He may be the Samuel Jones who was a Captain of the New Jersey Militia in the War of 1812 or the Samuel Jones who was an officer of the borough when it was incorporated in 1827. Samuel and Elizabeth moved to West Jeffer son, Ohio in 1819 but later moved back to New Jersey. He died 28 Sep 1849 probably in New Jersey. According to the article below Elizabeth died in Ohio in 1823. FROM THE HISTORY OF MADISON COUNTY, OHIO 1883 p100 Charles C. Jones, banker, Jefferson, is a grandson of Samuel and a son of Issac Jones, who were both natives of New Jersey, where the former matured and married. In 1819 , he, wife and several children came to Ohio, locating in Jefferson township, Madison County, purchasing land now occupied by Jefferson. His land joined Samuel SEXTON's land out of which two pioneers, on July 5, 1822, laid out New Hampton, just south of the present residence of John HEATH. On Sept 15, 1823, Samuel Jones buried his wife, in the fifty fourth year of her age. He soon after returned to New Jersey, where he married his present wife. On Nov 17 1830 he and wife, Mary deeded 110 acres of land on the National road, just west of Little Darby, to his son Isaac. Isaac was born in New Jersey in 1802 but from seventeen years of age was a resident of Ohio. In 1821 he married Eliza, daughter of John MILLS. She was born in New York, April 30, 1804. Isaac and wife settled in New Hampton. The north line of the 110 acres deeded to him by his father was the northern limit of Jefferson, which town he had laid into 64 lots in the fall of 1831. Early in life he joined the Babtist Church and during the third decade of the present century, he was ordained as a minister in that church. Through his efforts the original church was organized at New Hampton. He labored long and faithfully and on the 22 of Sept 1842 he died. (other records say June). He was a zealous Christian worker of unwavering fidelity and unswerving integrity. He was licensed to solemnize marriages on July 9, 1830 and on March 20 1840, William SHANNON, Govenor of the State, appointed him Associate Judge of the Court of Common Pleas for the county of Madison, in which capacity he served until his death. He was interred in the Hampton Cemetery where a suitable monument has been erected in his memory. His widow survived him several years. They had born to them eight children, viz: Sarah, wife of Dr. Col. Crabb, of York, Neb. an infant deceased Samuel, who died in 1842, aged nine years, J.M., who left Oberlin College and enlisted in the late war, but now is a resident of Clark County, Charles C., Thomas P. who served as Quatermaster of the Ninety-fifth Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the late war, Col William Jones whose biography appears in Union Township, Isaac C. Jr. also a student in the same college, but seeing the need of men to protect our country left school and at Cincinnati, Ohio enlisted in Co. C. seventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He rose to Lieutenant Colonel, participating in some of the severest battles, but on November 27, 1863 while engaged in the battle at Ringgold, was mortally wounded, and while lying in the last agonies of death, he said to his comrades, "I am happy to die for my Country". Of the entire family of Rev. Isaac Jones four are now living , William and Charles in Madison Co. The latter was born in New Hampton, October 7, 1826. He grew up in his native county, where he has always resided. He started in life with no means but is now among the wealthiest citizens of Jefferson. He has devoted thirty two years to auctioneering, in which he has been successful. He connected himself with the Baptist church many years ago and is now one of the Trustees. He has been associated with the interests of the township in various capacities, since 1874 he has been a Republican. He and wife had a family of eleven children, seven of whom are now living. p630 Subsquently New Hamptons population was increased by the coming of Samuel SEXTON, Sr., wife and son-in-law, William JONES, eldest son of Samuel JONES. They remained a few years, when both families became dissatisfied and returned to New Jersey from whence they had migrated. Samuel JONES emigrated to Ohio about the same time (1818) with his wife and nine children, viz., William (married as given above), Abigail, Mary A., Abraham, Samuel Jr., Isaac, Sarah A. (died in New Hampton) as did also Thomas, and Susan, who after buring her mother in 1823, returned to her native state with her father. Of Mary and Abigail we can learn nothing, but Samuel Jr., Abraham and Isaac remained in Jefferson Township where in fact the former and latter ________. Abraham subsquently settled near Sandusky, Ohio where he resided until death. p631 In 1823 Mr. BURNHAM (James Burnham) married Mary Ann Jones whose family was from Pemberton, New Jersey and who was a sister of Rev. Isaac Jones so widely known throughout that region. Mr. BURNHAM died January 6 1857 leaving his widow who survived him nine years and three sons and a daughter, James S., Lester A., John, Emma. p634 [:BOLD] Along about the beginning of the present century, Nehemiah GATES came into the township and remained until after the War of 1812 when he returned to Virginia, his native State and married a Miss Johnson and again came to Madison County. She bore him nine children, viz., Ezra, Miar, Jacob, Henry, Mary, Eliza, Olive, Rebecca and Harriet. His wife died and he was subsequently married three times. The second and third wives left no issue, but his fourth wife was Susan JOHNSON a sister of his first wife, who bore him two sons. Mr Gates was a native of New York and after the final settlement on Little Darby he assisted in erecting a mill on that stream. He was an industrious hardworking man and was much respected by the pioneers of his time. We find his name among the first juries of Madison County. p632 About 1825 there was a wolf den near the residence of the late A.B. HAYNES. The animal made its usual visits south to the plains on the ROBERTS and HEATH farms to catch sheep. A large pit was dug in the ground near his path, covered over with a board arranged on a pivot, and bait suspended in the air. The animal scented it and became the desired victim. Rev Isaac Jones was called to the scene. A forked stick was procured and placed over the animals neck. Mr. Jones then had some one hold the stick, keeping the wolf close to the ground and he desended, chained and gagged the animal, came out and took the wolf to John MILLS grist mill where he was kept to fight dogs for a long time. The wolf trap was thoughtlessly left open and subsequently a neighbors cow became a victim of the same trap. After several long and continuous searches she was given up as being strayed off but was finally found after a long while in the wolfpit, in almost a decomposed condition. Rev. Jones seems to have been much given to hunting. In 1835 when game was becoming scarce, a large crowd assembled for a wolf hunt and such other animals as might be within their intended circle. Rev Jones was appointed to climb a tree and when the game was driven near him to do the shooting. As he was ascending the tree, a Mr. PITCHER handed him his gun and the hammer caught on Pitchers sleeve, resulting in firing off the gun and the ball passing through Jones wrist, crippling him for live. The accident badly affected the hunt but still a few wolves and some deer were caught. p637 The Baptist Church of Jefferson. [:BOLD] Among the early settlers of New Hampton we find the most of them from New Jersey and the majority of them clinging to the persuasion of the Baptist Church. The date we are unable to give but during the early part of the third decade of the present century, Rev Isaac Jones
labors resulted in organizing the first society of Baptist in this township. They first worshipped in a very plain log hut, which stood about twenty paces west of the gate entering the Hampton Cemetery. Its ceiling was only about eight feet high, covered with clapboards. Subsquently, however of brick as they thought of modern style was erected and if now standing would be near the center of the cemetery. It was 20x32 and twelve feet high ceiling which served them until about 1848 when they built their present frame building in the village of Jefferson, but now a new and handsome church edifice is expected in the near future. Rev Jones labored hard in the cause of Christianity in his chosen church, possessing unwavering fidelity. The people were industrious and determined to sustain the cause. Rev. Jones continued his ministerial labors here until his death in 1842. p641 New Hampton Cemetery containing about two acres and located near the village of Jefferson was laid out and granted by Samuel JONES in the year 1823 and in the same year he dedicated it by the interment of his wife. Among a few other early interments we find Daniel SEXTON in 1823, Sarah, ect. This cemetery contains the remains of Rev. Isaac Jones who was interred in 1842. The grounds were never regulary laid out, hence no systematic order was maintained and under the years it has been managed by the official of the township to which it belongs. p641 Jefferson (formely New Hampton) In an early day the settlers needed a point closer that Franklinton for some one to keep in store such necessaries as were likely to be handled by the pioneer merchant. In consequence on July 5, 1822, Samuel JONES and Samuel SEXTON acknowledged the original plat of New Hampton and signing of deed before Justice A Burnham. There were three streets east and west, viz; Main, North and South Streets, each sixty feet wide, two alleys east and west, viz; Jones and Sexton. The streets north and south were five in number and the first three were sixty feet in width and the last two mentioned were forty nine and a half. Friend Center, Pearl, Union and Prairie. There were ninety three lots, mostly four by ten poles in size. The town was laid out in September 1831 by Rev Isaac Jones who owned the land. p644 About 1814 Nehemiah GATES erected a grist mill on Little Darby about one mile above Jefferson, but little of the early history of it is known. However, in 1817 he was succeeded by John MILLS, and in 1819 he attached a saw mill, on which it is believed the first lumber was sawed in the township, and was used for the first frame house of the territory in question. Next in order comes the sawmill of Isaac JONES, which he comtemplated building where the present gristmill stands, but form a little unpleasanness arising between him and the National road in regard to the race crossing the road, he abandoned the location and erected it in Jefferson, on Little Darby and it was known as a flutter mill. p703 [:BOLD] Madison County, Pleasant Twp Businessmen of the town Physician, Dr. Emery, gunsmith, Joseph JONES, blacksmith, W.J. Hodges. p704 Churches The first religious society to enter this twp was known by the name of Christian. On June 30 1812, a few people entered into compact. Samuel POWELL and Betsey POWELL.
