Whatever credit may attach to the tracing and compiling of this family history belongs to him; and Ion the contrary the criticisms, if any, must rest on his shoulders. Speaking for myself, I am highly pleased with the accurate, careful and correct manner in which he has spread our family tree. In his work, patience and perseverance has been fully exercised. Considering the fact that our family runs through nearly three centuries, in this country, I think the result of his patient and untiring work is nothing less than wonderful, indeed, beyond my most sanguine hopes or expectations. While he has not fully traced' our family prior to Capt. Israel Jones, he has shown the direct line, so that the descendants of Thomas, Benja min 1, Benjamin II and Lieut. Thomas, may catch on and extend-it to the latest generation.
