Jones, John (1760)

John Jones was a Guardian of the Natick Indians. He retired from that position because of his age in April 1771. He was one of a number of residents from Natick, Massachusetts and surrounding towns who, in 1760, certified a petition from Samuel Stratton to the Massachusetts Legislature.  They affirmed that the mill was of public value and that the Natick Indians who lived in the vicinity depended greatly on it.  Petition of Samuel Stratton to the Massachusetts General Court. Acts and Resolves (Massachusetts, 1771), 520.  See O'Brien, Dispossession by Degrees, 183, 193-4.
