BARUCH WESTON JONES

With the record of Iowa's development along agricultural and horticultural lines, the name of Baruch Weston Jones is closely associated. In the later years of his life he made his home in Charles City, Iowa but had extensive farming interests near by. He was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, September 20, 1850, and was there reared to manhood, attending the public schools. His parents were Isaac Crary and Maretta (Carpenter) Jones. His paternal grandparents were Denison and Hannah (Crary) Jones, the former born at Knox, Albany county, New York, November 10, 1794, and the latter at Stonington, Connecticut, September 23, 1794. The latter is a direct descendant of Peter Crary, who married Christobel Gallup, December 80, 1677; at Groton, Connecticut, and died in 1708. Peter Crary, Jr., who was baptized at Plainfield, Connecticut, April 23, 1682, married Ann Culver. Their son, Nathan Crary, born October 7, 1717, married Dorothy Wheeler, while Ruth Searl became his second wife. He died March 2l, 1798. Isaac Crary, the fourth child of Nathan and Dorothy (Wheeler) Crary, was born July 17, 1751, and wedded Mary Gallup, a daughter of Captain Joseph and Sarah (Gardiner) Gallup, on the 12th of November, 1775. Captain Gallup was a soldier of the Revolutionary war. He and his wife were married May 15, 1749, and had eleven children, the fourth of whom was Mary Gallup, called Molly, who was born July 5, 1756, and died May 17, 1827. She became the wife of Isaac Crary, and it was their daughter Hannah who became the wife of Denison Jones, and the grandmother of B. W. Jones of this review.

A short distance below this schoolhouse stands an old wood-colored story and a half house, the ridge of its roof sloping inward, showing plainly that it has stood here for many a long year. It was occupied by Gen. John Gallup, who married Hannah Denison in 1782, but it was probably built long before. He was active in the war of the Revolution, and soon after its close, he removed to Knox, New York state, with his cousins, Samuel Gallup and brothers, and established a settlement there. They had a large family of children, of whom Esther married Mr. Ebenezer Denison. She was born here and years after returned on a visit to this old home of her childhood, and carried a rose-bush from here to her new home in the then west. Their daughter, Mary, married Capt. Warren Holmes, who is so well known as the Captain from Mystic, who has been around Cape Horn more times than any other sailor.
