Notes for Johannes (John) Schantz
His name was anglicized to John Jones by the time of emigration to Monckton Township.111
In 1778, as the heirs of Charles Jones, he and his brother Henry were deeded the tract of land including Mill Creek (now called Somers 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)
