JONES, Rebeeea, Quaker preacher, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 8 July, 1739; died there, 15 April, 1818. From an early age she frequented Quaker meetings, notwithstanding the opposition of her mother, and, wishing to join the society, she made application to Catharine Payton, of Worcestershire, England, who had come to visit the Friends in this country in 1754. She was admitted into the ministry on 12 May, 1760, at the monthly meeting in Philadelphia. In 1784 she went to England on a religious visit, returning in 1788. In 1799 she visited the Society of Friends in New England, and before returning to Philadelphia went to Canada and preached in Kingston to a large assemblage, through the efforts of the chief justice.
