Family of Jerusha Peters and Zebulon Jones
Jerusha PETERS (dau. of William PETERS and Amy [SUTTON]) was born about 1790 probably in New Brunswick. She died 25 September 1853 in Kings County, New Brunswick.

Jerusha PETERS married Zebulon JONES.

Zebulon JONES (parents unknown) was born about 1786 probably in New Brunswick. He died 15 February 1861 in Kings County, New Brunswick. He was married a second time on 2 October 1854 to Elizabeth FLEWELLING.

Jerusha PETERS and Zebulon JONES had the following children:

  1. James JONES (? - ?)
  2. Samuel JONES (? - ?)
  3. William Peters JONES (? - ?)
  4. Jemima Elizabeth JONES (abt 1814 - ?)
  5. Jerusha JONES (abt 1827 - 1889)

A land deed dated 26 March 1845 names Zebulon Jones of Greenwich, farmer, and wife Jerusha as heirs of William Peters. Daughters Jemima Jones and Jerusha Jones are mentioned in their grandmother Amy Peters' will dated 1827. The 1851 Greenwich, Kings County, New Brunswick census lists Zebulon, Jerusha and son Zebulon. Zebulon Sr.'s will, written in 1860, mentions only his second wife Elizabeth and son Zebulon.
