STEPHEN JONES, one of the early settlers of Venango county, settled in what is now Scrubgrass township, afterward removed to Irwin township, and located south of Mechanicsville. He served in Captain Witherup’s company in the war of 1812. He married Margaret McCool of Scrubgrass township, who bore him the following children: Robert; Eliza; Margaret; Nancy; George; William, and Keller. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, class leader in that society for many years, and died in 1864, his widow surviving him until 1883.
