JONEN, Sibyl, Quaker preacher, born in Brunswick, Maine, in 1808; died near Augusta, Maine, 4 December, 1873. Her early life was spent in Augusta, and for eight years she taught in public schools. Her maiden name was Jones, and in 1833 she married Eli Jones. During 1845-'6 she visited, with her husband, all the yearly meetings of Friends in the United States, and made three journeys to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. They visited Liberia in 1851, Ireland in 1852, and subsequently Norway, Sweden, and the continent of Europe, returning to this country in 1854. During the civil war she preached to nearly 30,000 soldiers in hospitals, and in 1867 she embarked on her last missionary voyage, visiting Europe, Egypt, and Syria, and presenting Christianity from the Quaker standpoint to Mohammedan women. Her travels in the East are set forth in "Eastern Sketches" by Ellen Clare Miller, her companion (Edinburgh, 1872).
