    Notes 
    • Oliver S. Jones, Oliver Jones' grandson, stated in a memoir written in 1917: "My paternal grandfather, Benjamin Jones, was a son of Thomas Jones who came from Scotland in the year 1755."

      There are not many records of Thomas Jones' stay in Bute County. Here are some:

      On August 7, 1764 he was a witness, by his mark, to a deed from William Young and his wife "Bettey" to Adam Jones of "Virginney" for the sale, for 150 pounds Viriginia money, of 490 acres on "Ashle's" (Ashley's) Branch, a tributary to Hawtree Creek. The land was located on both sides of the Mill Branch and adjoining landowners were Phillip Hawkins and Porter. The deed was also witnessed by Daniel Ford, James Young and John Pope (Bute County, North Carolina DB-A, p. 13)

      On September 29, 1764 he was witness to a deed from David Young and his wife Ann(by her mark) for the sale of 192 acres "where I now live" to John Jones of New Kent County, Virginia for 150 pounds. This land had been bought by David Young from George Tillman and was located on teh east side of Hawtree Creek adjoining the Old (Indian) Trading Path. (Bute County, NC DB-A, p. 88). Other witnesses were Joshua Gray, William Archer, and Godfree Jones, son of the buyer. Ann Young was a daughter of Benjamin Jones.

      On June 22, 1766 Thomas, David Young his brother-in-law, and Duelle Darnall were witnesses to a deed from William Patterhall, Sr. to Thomas and John Patterhall (Warren Co., NC DB-3, p. 307)

      In the November, 1772 term of the Bute County Court, Isaac Bryan(t), who in 1766 sold land to David Young, Thomas' brother-in-law, brought an action for debt against Thomas. We do not know the outcome.

      Thomas Jones, on June 11, 1774 gave a mortgage to James Ronaldson and Company of Bute County on 120 acres, a black mare and cold, 7 head of cattle, 20 head of hogs, farm equipment and household goods to secure a debt of 48 pounds, 13 shillings and 1 farthing (Bute CO., NC DB-5, p. 224) Adjoining landowners were John Jones, Thomas Glover, and David King and the property was described as being on the road from the land of Frederick Malone to Black's Ferry. The deed was witnessed by THomas Miller, Jr., John King Rosser, and Mary (by mark) Miller (see the entry below about what seems to be the same tract of land). The deed was proved by Thomas Miller, Jr. in the February 1775 term of court. Two year earlier, Charles Darnall, Thomas' brother-in-law, mortgaged property to the same firm which was active as a money lender in the area.

      On May 11, 1778 Thomas and Charles Darnall, husband of Jane Jones, gave a security guarantee for Ann Young, Thomas' sister, as administrator of the estate of her deceased husband, David Young.

      On June 8, 1778, a year after his father's death, Thomas Jones bought 120 acres on teh north side of Malone Road from John King Rosser for 25 pounds "proclamation" money (Bute County, NC DB-7, p. 253) This land adjoined that of David King, John Ellington and Benjamin Jones (probably Benjamin Jones' estate being run by John Gilreath). This was probably the land deeded earlier by Thomas Jones to James Ronaldson and Company, less the livestock. The deed was witnessed by Anthony Barnett, James Burke, and Thomas Willson and proved by Burke in the November 1778 term of court. Less than a year later, on January 5, 1779, Thomas sold this tract for a substantial profit.
