Jonas Touchstone is recorded by historians as trading lands and residing in North Buffalo in 1775. He appears as head of household in the 1790 census taken in Guilford County, North Carolina. He is listed as over 45 in the 1800 census but it is not certain he is the Jonas Touchstone born to Richard Touchstone and Sarah Johnson in 1724. His household contains 3 females and from the complaint against Levi Ross' estate we know his Will indicated he was married and named two daughters. The Last Will and Testament of Jonas Touchstone was proven in Guilford County, North Carolina the 3rd Monday in May of 1815. The said testator at the time of his death was seized of three-hundred and twenty-five acres in Guilford County. He bequeathed this land to daughters Jane Delay and Mary Ross, wife of Levi Ross.
