Descendants of Catherine Jones & William Coleman
     Catherine Jones was born on 31 August 1798.1 She married William Coleman, son of (--?--) Coleman.1 She was the daughter of Andrew Jones and Mary Slough.1 She died on 13 November 1860 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 62.1 She was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 Catherine Jones' parents, Andrew Jones and Mary Slough, lived at Copetown and are buried in the Copetown Cemetery. The Jones are of United Empire Loyalist stock. Andrew's father was James Jones of New York who declared for King George when the American Revolution broke out. He languished in an American jail for three years. He was in jail with a future son-in-law by the name of Hodgkinson and the story is told by a Hodgkinson descendent that there was a family-engineered jail break which freed them. The two joined Butlers Rangers and served with the Rangers until the cause was lost and they made their way to Upper Canada, where they rejoined their families.

Andrew Jones is found in the 1816 land assessment of Beverly Township. He is also in the 1818 and 1819 assessments and in the 1825 Beverly Township census. There is no doubt that his farm was in the area of what is now Copetown.1 This is the same Catherine Jones as person #566 in the My Loyalist Family line.
