ID # 1994, (1765-1852)
|Birth||Mary Jones was born on 17 December 1765. |
|Marriage||She married William Hodgkinson. |
|Death||She died on 23 October 1852 at age 86. |
|Note||Inforation for the name of Mary Jones' husband, William Hodgkinson, is taken from Mary's petition for land datelined Niagara, 6 January, 1808 (this is found on microfilm C-2046, image 210, Vol. 226, bundle H number 8). She describes herself as the daughter of James Jones, late of Grantham, enrolled U.E. Loyalist, and as the wife of William Hodgkinson. She gives her residence as the Township of Grantham.|
Also, the Niagara Peninsula Branch of the OGS has published a paper on the Hodkinson Family Burying Ground (publication 3272), which is essentially based on correspondence between Fred Parnell and Janet Carnochan. This provides us with the inscription information for the gravestones of William and Mary.
