" John Jonas Erskine, son of John and Jean Hutchinson Erskine, was born 1658-60. In 1679 he was about 21 years of age when appointed attorney of his mother Jean, a widow.

Jonas Erskine, with others as a resident of Christina Hundred of New Castle, signed a certificate that he would live quietly peaceably with obedience under the Government of William Penn.

In the Pennsylvania colonial records, Jonas Askin Erskine is listed as a trader and interpreter among the conostogas in 1709. His name appears on the first tax list of Chester County West Nottingham in 1719.

Jonas married Jane or Jan and they had the following children Elizabeth Murphee, Margaret Allen Michael Sr., and possibly Alexander and John.

Jonas died in 1725 Cecil County Maryland, where he had moved 1708-09." (Jameson, pp. 208-209).
