Jonas Aspinal was born in Great Boughton, Chester, Cheshire, England, on November 11, 1857.[1] He was a farmer.[2]

Jonas married Sarah Hannah Fretwell on June 30, 1883, in Halifax, Yorkshire.[3]

In the 1901 census, a 72 year old man named John Rawnsley is living with Jonas and his family, who is recorded as being Jonas' uncle.[2] I suspect that John Rawnsley is a misspelling of John Rangley". That would explain the relationship between them.

Jonas and Sarah also had an adopted son named Harold Priestly, who was born in about 1887.[2]

Jonas died on May 14, 1916.[4]
