Notes for Heinrich (Henry) Schantz
His name was anglicized to Henry Jones by the time of emigration to Monckton Township.111

In 1778, as the heirs of Charles Jones, he and his brother John were deeded the tract of land including Mill Creek (on the north side of the Petitcodiac just west of Turtle Creek which is on the south side), the site of the old Acadian grist mill which they restored and ran for some time (the only grist mill in that area).92 (Not to be confused with the other “Mill Creeks” which were located west of Hall’s Creek and in Lower Coverdale (Hillsborough).)
From the report of Stephen Millidge, deputy surveyor, on March 18, 1788:
“...But one grist mill, and not one saw mill, has been erected in this Township, since the settlement of it; the grist mill you will be pleased to observe, I have represented, on Mill Creek, and was built about 6 years ago by John and Henry Jones; it has hitherto been used, and last Fall made a quantity of flour. It was originally built of logs and for want of proper repairs the house is now of little value, but I am informed the dam, made to stop the water, is still of importance as an improvement. The inclosed is an estimate of the present value of it, by two impartial persons, which I imagined it would not be improper to produce, as they are the (Jones') intend to Memorial His Excellency for the exclusive privilege of the Stream.” (Available in the New Brunswick Provincial Archives and in Mount Allison University Archives)

A listing of stones at the First Salisbury Baptist Cemetery (also called the Old Pioneer Cemetery) includes his stone:
The earliest burial ground to be established in the eastern end of Salisbury Parish. It is located across the Petitcodiac River from Salisbury Village - on the south side of the highway leading from the bridge over the Petitcodiac to the Pollet River settlements. Not many rods west of this cemetery, on the opposite side of the highway, was established in 1800, the earliest Baptist Church between Sackville and the St. John River. Rev. Joseph Crandall, who was ordained over this early Baptist log church in 1800, was intered in this cemetery. The church supplanting this early log church was built on the south bank of the Petitcodiac, directly opposite [   ].  Later, a church was built in Salisbury village. The land on which the cemetery is located, was donated by Young Sherman, father-in-law of Rev. Joseph Crandall.

This must be located at the north end of Grub Road since Nan Jones had indicated the cemetery was on Grub Road.86
