Nehemiah Jones, born in Middleborough, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts, was the son of Ebenezer Jones Sr. and Mary (Finney) Jones. As the person who left flowers below has done (19 Mar 2012), he is easily and often confused with his first cousin of roughly the same age, Nehemiah Jones Jr., who was born in Fredericksburg Precinct (Philipse Patent Lot 8 aft. 1754, Frederickstown aft. 7 March 1788, Franklin aft. 1795, Patterson aft. 1808 ), Dutchess Co. (Putnam Co. aft. 1812), New York.

We can be certain of this Nehemiah's identity and parentage not only because his birth record (with parents cited) is found in Middleborough vital records, but also (and very fortunately), his son Pomroy Jones clearly related his Jones lineage from Oneida County back to Massachusetts, citing his brothers and father in "Annals and Recollections of Oneida County", printed by A. J. Rowley, Rome, NY; 1851. Pomroy Jones is also buried in this cemetery.

According to the DAR, Nehemiah Jones (1760-1838) was a veteran of the Revolutionary War in the Massachusetts Militia (not New York Militia), enlisting as a Private in the Company of Capt. Allen, under the command of Col. Wigglesworth. As the 1903 DAR bronze plaque on the monument attests, this has been a popular and well researched line of descent for members of that organization.

This Nehemiah Jones is frequently referred to as "Nehemiah of Massachusetts".

The father of "Nehemiah of New York", Nehemiah Jones Sr. (1735-1805), served as a Private in Col. Henry Luddington's Regiment, Capt. Joel Mead's Company; Militia - Dutchess Co., New York 7th (Frederickstown, formed from 3rd aft. 6 May 1776), and was uncle to this Nehemiah Jones, and definitely not his father.
