Notes of William Schooler: 
After 1760, the Virginia Council offered stong inducements to get people to settle in the new county of Augusta. Many families flocked to these new lands. Among them were Harrisons, Schoolers, Vances, Crawfords, Springers and other friends and relatives. After settling in what was thought to be Augusta County, Virginia, it transpired that they were in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. As population increased, counties were divided and divided again so that some people found themselves in four different counties without ever leaving the farm. About 1785, many of these related families moved from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. They located in Cynthiania, Harrison County. They went down the Ohio River to Limestone (Maysville) and along the Licking River to Cynthiania and Paris. Among them were the Schoolers. They were probably drawn to Kentucky by the land grants given for war service. "The Kentucky Gazette" of 8 September 1787 noted that Mr. Schooler of Harrison's Station on Licking Creek was fired on by Indians on the 5th of September. George Mason and Mr. Glascock were fired on by the Indians while cutting wood on Licking Creek on 7 September. Mason was fatally wounded." On 10 July 1795, William Schooler is mentioned as a 'teste' in court documents in Harrison Co., Kentucky in the will of Robert McKittrick, Sr. -Bundle #9, Suit #263 in 1798 William Schooler and wife Elizabeth vs. Lawrence Harrison -- charge of slander for claiming that Elizabeth committed adultery Michael McLaughlin. Lawrence had made the claim in public on 1 Oct 1796 apparently in hopes of breaking up William and Elizabeth. The court appointed two arbitration groups, but neither could apparently reach a decision as to whether Lawrence should pay the plantiffs for damages to the tune of a few hundred pounds of money. The outcome of the defamation suit is not clear, but William and Elizabeth requested subpoena of many of their neighbors. -Bundle #37, Suit #1036 John Yarnall vs. William and Charles Schooler -- defendants signed a statement on 20 Oct 1806 promising to pay the plaintiff with 125 gallons of whiskey. On 28 Nov 1799 in Harrison Co., Kentucky Deeds.

Notes on Salathiel Schooler: 
Salathial and James settled in Bourbon Co., Kentucky and are mentioned in the "History of Scott, Harrison, Bourbon, and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky" by W. H. Perrin DEATH:Salathial died at the home of daughter Sarah Talbott on Paris Pike near Clintonville, Bourbon Co., Kentucky. She is buried beside her husband and nearby is their daughter, Mary W. Jones. Nearby are her parents, Benjamin Schooler and Devine and her brother Benjamin Franklin Schooler. FHC #6048628.
On August 17, 1782 when Salathial “Sally” was 21, she married James JONES, son of Thomas JONES & Affia ASHURST, in St. George Church Of England, Fredericksburg, Virginia. Born on March 26, 1758 in Fredericksburg, Stafford County, Virginia. James died in Clintonville, Bourbon County, Kentucky on June 3, 1839; he was 81. Buried in James Jones Graveyard, Bourbon County, Kentucky.
The paternal grandparents of John 1. Jones (our subject) were JAMES JONES b. 1758 in North Carolina, d. June 3, 1839 near Clintonville, Bourbon County, Kentucky, i. James Jones graveyard which is on farm now (1954) owned by William Stipp, Sr., westerly of intersection of Clintonville and Ironworks Roads, m. August 17, 1782 in (old) St. George Church of England at Fredericksburg, Virginia, to SALATHIAL (probably a form of Sallie, and a Biblical name) SCHOOLER who was b. 1761 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia d. April 8, 1850 at home of daughter Sarah Talbott on Paris Pike near Clintonville, i. beside her husband. A nearby grave is that of Mary W. Jones (their unmarried daughter), b. February 26, 1797, d. November 24, 1882. Two other graves thereat, marked only by fieldstones, are said to be the resting places of Salathial Schooler's parents - Benjamin Schooler 1. m ------ Devine; both d. 1795. Another pile of stones is said to mark the grave of their son Benjamin II. "James Jones was put in Revolution at Yorktown under Washington; he migrated to Kentucky, locating (on Baughman's Creek near Athens) in Fayette County in 1789 movjng to Bourbon County in 1799; he (and wife) joined Stoney Point Regular Baptist Church, 1837; he acquired about 800 acres of land at Jones Crossroad in Bourbon County (the original land was purchased from Dr. Henry Clay and Archiebald Bedford); and he had a small cigar factory in Clintonville." - L. V. H. Jr., 1953. According to Perrin (1882, q.v.), James Jones was the first to manufacture tobacco in Bourbon County. In 1883, on the back of a Thomas Jones funeral ticket, Cynthia Rebecca Jones Wright (1842 - 1915) wrote, "The Surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown, Oct. 19, 1781 - my great-grandfather, James Jones and his brother William Jones were there - also my great-grandfather, Benj. Penn, went through the Revolutionary War." Before the war, James Jones worked as an overseer on a relative's plantation in North Carolina. The log cabin which James built (or acquired from his father-in-law, Benjamin Schooler, Sr. according to Mary S. Gorham, 1953) as a home in Bourbon County still stands on the place, now (1954) owned by Mrs. Mattie Lou Stipp Weathers, back from the intersection of Clintonville and Ironworks Roads; the graveyard is on the hill above the house on the farm of William Stipp. Before his death, James added extras to his house, including cherry and mahogany furniture; some bearing shipping addresses from New Orleans are treasured by the family. The inventory of James Jones (Bourbon County Will Book 2, p. 387) shows the estate to be appraised at $8,732, as of July 2, 1839. 
The ancestry of James Jones(supra), grandfather of our subject John I. Jones, is narrated by L. V. Hagan, Jr. thus: - "There is not a great deal to be found on the forebears of James Jones. who was the son of THOMAS and AFFIA ASHURST JONES, and who was grandson of WILLIAM JONES of North Carolina and a native of Wales. Will of William Jones mentions his son Thomas Jones and a maiden daughter, Elizabeth Jones (see North Carolina Calendar of Wills). Affia Ashurst, mother of James Jones, was a native of Savannah, Georgia, and a half-sister of Josiah Ashurst, who settled early in Bourbon County and became the ancestor of the Ashurst family thereabouts; several children of Josiah Ashurst married their half cousins - children of James and Salathiel Schooler Jones." - q.v. It is not known definitely when THOMAS JONES came to Kentucky; but before 1799 he was located in Paris, was an original trustee of Bourbon Academy, and was proprietor of the Paris Mills on east side of Stoner Creek as shown by early plats of Paris." (Sketches of Paris, by Keller & McCann (1876), at p. 7 notes that on February 20, 1797 he, with James Duncan and Charles Smith, were "appointed Commissioners to let out and superintend the building of a new courthouse", which was to last for 75 years; and at p. 16 it is noted that in 1805 the residence of Thomas Jones was a two-story log building on the west side of High Street near the then outskirts of "the compactness of the town", presumably about where Cherry Street now shows on the Hardin-Ardery map (1951) of Paris.) "Thomas Jones, before coming to Kentucky, served in the Revolution from his native state of North Carolina; and, at outbreak of War of 1812, he received a civil commission as Warehouseman in Paris. He was buried in the old Paris Cemetery, located where the Ice Plant later stood; all signs of this early cemetery have now disappeared, although many graves were moved to the new cemetery on Sixteenth Street. His will, dated October 4, 1811, was probated at the July, 1813 term of the Bourbon Court. The will of Affia Ashurst Jones is also on file thereat." 
He migrated to Kentucky, locating on Baughman's Creek near Athens in Fayette Co. in 1789 and moving to Bourbon Co. in 1799. He and his wife joined the Stoney Point Regular Baptist Church in 1837. James acquired about 800 acres of land at Jones Crossroad in Bourbon Co., Kentucky and he had a small cigar factory in Clintonville. MILITARY:James Jones served in the Revolution at Yorktown under Washington. DEATH:Will for James Jones dated 15 October 1835 and probated 6 January 1840 in Bourbon Co., Kentucky, names children; Patsy Foster, Polly Jones, Betsey Jones, Wharton Jones, William Jones, Nancy Ashurst, Thomas Jones, and Sally Talbott.
