      From Lanore Jones Barth:

      Allen B. Jones was born in 1787 in Casey County, Kentucky, near the Greene River. At the age of twenty, he married a young lady of German descent, named Elizabeth Smith. Between 1810 and 1812 he and his brother Nathan and their families and possibly another brother moved down the Ohio River and crossed into Indiana, locating in the area later to be known as Putnam County.

      From Primitive Baptist Church records:

      MT. PLEASANT (MANHATTAN)(1827)

      Mt. Pleasant Church, at Manhattan, was organized on April 20, 1827, at the home of friend Squire Boone, with eight charter members, viz., Allen Jones, Elizabeth Jones, Adam Neff, John Reel, Sally Reel, William Jones, Mary Jones, and Jane McIntosh. The presbytery was composed of Elder Samuel Arthur and Absalom Hurst from Deer Creek, John Chance and Pernal Chance from Eel River, and John Stactiford from Walnut Creek.

      The church met at the homes of members and friends until June 1832, when the records state they "met at Manhattan." In June 1832 the records indicate that the church met at the meeting house, and the following month trustees were elected. In March 1844 the church agreed to add to the meeting house to make its dimensions 40 feet long by 22 feet wide.

      Pastors (or moderators) included Elders Samuel Arthur, Benjamin Parks, Thomas N. Robertson, and Isaac W. Denman, and others.
