Jonas Jennings married Martha Fether in 1738. He died in 1748. It seems that all events, birth, marriage and death, took place in Haworth, Yorkshire, England.

Would you consider posting an ancestor tree with birth, marriage and death years?
Yes but I don’t know all the deaths. Would you want what I have got in single male line?

Jonas Jennings baptised November 1715 had father also Jonas, unless there is another one? The baptism entry reads "Jonas S. of Jonas Jennings ffr. Ox." i.e. far Oxenhope. Haworth was divided into 4 townships, Haworth, Stanbury, near and far Oxenhope, which can help to distinguish families of the same name. I cannot see anything earlier for Jonas senior, but he appears to have had other children, Sarah and Susannah perhaps, and the best thing to do would probably be to make a family tree as Frank suggests with all the details you can find.
