There doesn't seem to be known proof of Jerusha's parents. The Glocester, RI books don't go back far enough to see if she was born there; neither do most of the other Providence area baptism records. The earliest Mowry genealogy books don't list Jerusha anywhere. Many of today's genealogies list her parents as John Mowry and Elizabeth Clark. Only one son, John, is listed in most books for them. There have been many other cases of proof or documentation turning up in the past 50 years - possibly this is the case here.
I could find only one concrete source for linking Jerusha with John Mowry and Elizabeth Clark: Laverne Edward Olney's work. No sources are quoted there.
