29 Sep 1692 Mosias William JONES born at St Peters, New Kent, Virginia [York County, Virginia, Charles Parish Records, 1648-1789: William Jones, b. 29 Sep 1692 at Charles Parish, York, VA: confirms parents names, birth date, and location] [The Mosias Jones I in the book, Pioneer Families of Missouri, is apparently a composite of two people, Mosias I and Mosias II. A lot of people on the internet have them mixed up too, and there seems to be two different lines of Mosias Jones in Virginia laying claim to the story about William Jones who died en route to America. You would think that Mosias would be a unique name, but no such luck. There are at least 4 Mosias Jones so far identifed. Some claim that Mosias I was born in 1670, whereas I have used the 1692 figure]
