His paternal grandparents were Denison and Hannah (Crary) Jones, the former born at Knox, Albany county, New York, November 10, 1794, and the latter at Stonington, Connecticut, September 23, 1794. The latter is a direct descendant of Peter Crary, who married Christobel Gallup, December 80, 1677; at Groton, Connecticut, and died in 1708.
