Although referred to as John Paul Jones in "Quinlan's History of Sullivan County", it is believed that John's middle name was actually Patterson. He was married three times. The name of the first wife, who died young, is not known and there were no children from this union. Shortly after coming to Monticello, John married Phebe Ecker, daughter of Wolfert Ecker, a lieutenant in the Revolutionary War. They had two sons, Samuel and William, and at least three daughters. After the death of Phebe, John married Charlotte Andrews. There were no children born from this marriage.
Monticello was founded by Samuel Frisbee Jones and his brother John Paul Jones. They were natives of the town of Goshen, Litchfield County, Connecticut, where their father, Samuel Jones, was a farmer. He was a patriot of 1776 and served in the Revolutionary army as an ensign. While his sons, Samuel F. and John P. were young, he removed to Lebanon, Columbia County, where he died in 1836, aged 84 years.
