Thomas Jones married Elizabeth Poole 23 August 1749

Thomas Jones was born about 1732 in Wales, the son of Nicholas Jones and Elizabeth Mead.  Nicholas had been living in the Colonies, but went back to Wales to live for a time, so Thomas and perhaps some of his siblings were born in Wales.  The Jones family returned and settled in Jamaica, Long Island, New York in 1750. Edward bought a farm on Black Oak Ridge Road in Bergen County NJ about 1773. Thomas and Elizabeth had at least eight children.   His three sons, Edward, William, and Nicholas and families (and possibly his daughters) left for Nova Scotia about 1783 after the Revolutionary War, with Admiral Digby’s group, as Loyalists.  Son Edward returned to the farm about 1800, William and Nicholas stayed in Nova Scotia.  William and Nicholas both married Loyalist daughters of Dutch descent.

Thomas and Elizabeth stayed on their farm in New Jersey until they died, she in 1784 and Thomas in 1803.
