Add to that, Suzanne, that in 1823 and 1825 Zebulon Jones, Sr., Thomas Richards, Thomas Flewelling, Jr. and Caleb Flewelling (and others) petitioned for land, apparently as the wardens and vestrymen of the Anglican Church in Greenwich Parish, and you know that they knew each other. I just noticed that the on-line version of the Westfield-Greenwich Parish christenings which H. A. Cody collected begins only about 1826, yet I know that he began with 1801 (when James, s/o Adam Flewelling, was baptized.) The microfilm version may have the baptism of Charles Richards. Especially as H. A. Cody, in 1901, was boarding with Zebulon Jones, Jr.'s widow, and it appears that Zebulon was Charles' brother-in-law.
Speaking of Zebulon Jones, Wetmore seems to have indicated that the father of that name married (2nd?) Elizabeth Flewelling, d/o Enos. While I have put together a five-page, speculative essay on the Jones' family (which I cannot post here), I cannot find firm confirmation of this marriage, nor a clear outline of Zebulon's children. The lack of information on the Jones is disheartening as Zebulon, Sr.'s father, John Jones, and John's brother-in-law, Samuel Peabody, probably saved what was to become New Brunswick from being captured by the Patriots in the Revolution. I would think they are worthy of more than a mention.
