Reference Sources

The purpose of this page of CommonAncestors.Net is to provide a complete profile of Eliphalet Jones from existing information sources on the web. Within each boxed table, the actual text appears on the top and the last paragraph contains the link to the page containing that text. In some case, it will be necessary to search the referenced page to find the exact text that is cited.

In some cases the sources will provide conflicting information. We will attempt to provide all information on a facet of his life so that you, the reader, can come to your own conclusion. Thus we will attempt to report all sides so you can decide. This is unlike the process where one selectively edits what is to be reported for the viewer to decide.

For example, there is a question as to whether Rev. Eliphlet Jones was the first settled minister of of the First Congregational Church of Greenwich. Because there is a conflict we have headed the section as First "Settled" Minister of Greenwich?
