He married his first cousin. In 1808 they settled on the Pollett River south of the Petitcodiac in what was then Salisbury Parish, Westmorland County. “Charles was a grandson of Karl who had come from Pennsylvania in the 1760’s and settled in Moncton Township.”96
“In memory of Mr. Charles Jones who died October 23, 1850, in the 69 year of his age.
My flesh shall slumber in the ground,
Till the last trumpets joyfull sound,
Then burst the chains with sweet surprise.
And in my Saviour's image rise.”84
The words are from the Psalm 17 by Isaac Watts. Watts is credited with having written over 750 hymns, including setting most of the Psalms into English metre. Benjamin Franklin first brought Watts psalms and hymns to the United States. Watts died in 1748.
