My query comes to you from Australia....this distance makes research very difficult - as we have no access to records. I would appreciate any assistance or advice in trying to locate my ancestors.
My ggg grandfather was WILLIAM FONES - born 1764 at Nth Kingston (perhaps) and ddefinitely Rhode Island.
He enlisted in the Rhode Island Militia for the Revolutionary War in 1778 - he was fourteen at the time. He later married DORCAS SHERMAN - (also of Rhode Island. They settled in Wales Center NY - where they both of died in their senior years and were buried.
Any assistance with either William or his wife Dorcas would be greatly appreciated.
Kindest regards from the Land DownUnder
