Samuel Jones, from Framingham, Mass., came to Dublin in 1777, settling upon a farm on road 12, which he bought of Joseph Adams, the first settler on the farm. His son, Samuel, married Mary, daughter of Joshua Farnum, a soldier in the Revolutionary war. He spent his life on the home farm and reared a family of seven children. His son, Corydon married Abbie g., daughter of Col. Rufus C. Piper, of this town. He has four children, and is still residing on the old homestead.
