144: Lewellen's | as told by great, great, great, great granddaughter Jacquelyn Procter Reeves Author, Historian | Lewellen was quite a common name for men of Welsh descent and the surname Jones even more common. Lewellen's ancestors had an ax to grind with England even before the Revolutionary War. His ancestors descended from Llywelyn ap Gurffudd, who was the last Welsh born Prince of Wales. King Edward I, the 'Hammer of the Scots' was at war with the Welsh and captured Llywelyn who was executed and his severed head was displayed on a stake at the Tower of London. Rowland Jones came to America in 1674 and was the first vicar of Bruton Parish at Williamsburg, Virginia. One of his great-granddaughters, Frances Barber Jones was the first cousin of Martha Washington. They grew up as sisters. Frances marries John Jones; and so it was that Lewellen and his father John Jones spent the winter at Valley Forge with their cousin 'George Washington'. Both Jones' were captains and Lewellen's commission was signed by John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress. Lewellen was also with General Washington as he made the historic crossing of the Delaware. Lewellyn was born around 1760 in Virginia and died March 1820 in Madison County, Alabama Territory. When questioned about Lewelleyn being a captain at age 16, Jacquelyn replied that many young men were given high ranks based on their popularity and assured me this is the correct date. She cites a book written by his great-great-granddaughter Mrs. Edward Cape (Clara Harrison) of San Marcos, Texas. The book was also given to the University of Alabama, Huntsville but when I spoke with the librarian (March 2014) it was found missing. Lewelleyn is buried on the Old Swartz place on Athens Pike. A gravestone has been erected on campus of the University of Alabama Huntsville by his descendants. It is claimed this is the site on which he was buried (Jones Perkins Cemetery UAH as reported by the Huntsville Times, June 1972). His name appears on the Huntsville Monument erected by the Twickenham Town DAR Chapter. This spot was known as Avalon and buried along side him were his grandchildren and most likely his son Alexander whose grave is unmarked. Selling his lands in Bedford County, VA in 1803, he moves to Oglethorpe County, Georgia between 1803-1804. Sometime between 1805-1809, he moves to Madison County, Mississippi Territory and purchases lands there. He lived at Druid's Grove near Greenbrier, Limestone County Alabama, naming the town 'Greenbrier'. He marries Mary Louise Anderson on 21 October 1792 in Louisa County, VA, She being the daughter of Nelson Anderson who fought under Light Horse Harry Lee and Frances Jackson Anderson. Their son John Nelson Spotswood Jones was born 1 September 1793 in Louisa County, VA. He marries Eliza Ann daughter of John Haywood of Tennessee. They live at Druid's Grove. John graduates from Yale in 1818 and studies with Judge John Haywood. His law office has been recreated in Alabama's Constitution Village in Huntsville and served as the first public library in Alabama. | Story | Valley Forge

145: Captain Jones not only served in the Revolutionary War but also saw action at Valley Forge. He served as captain of the sixth company in the 1st Virginia Continental Light Dragoons from June 13, 1776 to July 1779 along with Henry 'Light Horse Harry' Lee father of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee. His Dragoons saw action at the Battles of Brandywine and Germantown in the fall of 1777. With limited manpower at Brandywine the regiment spotted a British flanking movement in time for Washington to withdraw, thereby saving the army. While encamping at Valley Forge, Washington kept his Dragoons busy intercepting shipments of food to the British in Philadelphia and serving as observers of British movements. They only remained a month at Valley Forge but lost no men to the bitter winter and their duty of intercepting the British. After the War, Captain Jones uses his war bounty to claim 4,000 acres near Oglethorpe, GA but moved to Madison County, Mississippi Territory in what is later described as 'Alabama Fever' because of the fertile soil. He established several successful plantations: Avalon in Madison County and Druid's Grove in Limestone. A Marker Dedication was held on 12 May 2007 and was presented by the Descendants of Valley Forge, Alabama SAR, Alabama Society C.A.R., Huntsville DAR Chapter, Vice President of Advancement, UAH, Tennessee Valley Chapter SAR.
