  • Notes 
    • Dorothy Jones was the daughter of Elias and Jane Jones. They had come to America from Denbigh, Flint, Wales, in the ship Submission, in September 1682. The log of the ship lists the family. Dorothy was 10 when she arrived. The Jones family were Quakers, so by marrying someone from the Church of England, Dorothy had married "out of meeting," to use the Quaker term.
