He was a military emigrant and was issued 100 acres of land, that being N.E.1/2 Lot 17  Con 4 Beckwith Township. He received the title to this land once it was cleared and a building was
      erected.This took place in 1824.The census record for Beckwith Township for 1821 indicates 1 male, 1 female, 2 male children, 2 female children. However, in Peter Jones' will of 1849 he states " my oldest son Peter Jones of Montague, my youngest son  John and my daughter Dinah Scott." There is no mention of a fourth child.
