    Notes 
    • From Bond’s Watertown Genealogies:
      Stephen settled in Falmouth, near his brother Phinehas, with whom he was connected in business. He enlisted as a Captain in Col. Noble’s regiment for an expedition against Quebec in 1746, but the ships and troops from England did not arrive, which defeated the project, and Col. Noble was ordered with his regiment to Minus, now Horton, in Nova Scoiia. to keep the neutral French, who lived there, in subjection. The French still held a fort at Cumberland Bay. A considerable detachment was sent from that fort, more than a hundred miles, to attack Col. Noble's party by surprise, in a heavy snow-storm, in the night of Jan. 7, 1746. The enemy got very near the Col’s, quarters, where he and most of the officers were, before they were discovered by the sentinel at the door, by reason of the violence of the storm. The sentinel gave the alarm and fled. Capt. Jones immediately met the enemy at the door, and was killed. They entered the house and killed some of the officers before they were out of bed. Col. Noble was among the slain. The main body of the force, at some distance from the Col’s, quarters, soon after capitulated. Capt. Jones left a wid., 2 sons, and 2 drs. [1]
