Zacariah Jones is said to have been a baptist preacher, who emigrated to the Colonies from Wales in about 1760, settling in what is now North Carolina. His wife was Ellen Smith. Shortly after their arrival in the Carolinas, the Jones' homestead was destroyed by Indians, so the family migrated north to Delaware, where their first son, Ebenezer, was born January 21, 1763. Zacariah married second wife, Sadie Vance, and had three other sons, Seth, Jesse, and Robert.

"Living in Frederich County, Ann and Joseph Hobbs, Sr. were neighbors and good friends of the Josiah Roten famly. After the Josiah Rotens moved to Rowan Cty, NC, they maintained close contact with Joseph and Ann, encouraging them to join them in Rowan County. Joseph Hobbs, Sr. did eventually buy some land in Rotan County; but, he and his family never moved there. Instead, they sold their North Carolina land in November of 1784.
"The Josiah Rotens had a grown daughter named Mary who was maried to Ebenezer Jones. Ebenezer and Mary Jones were living in North Carolina when they, along with some fifteen other families, decided to move to Indiana. In August of 1810, they formed a train of 35 wagons and headed west. Joseph Hobbs, Sr seems to have found Indiana a more appealing destination than North Carolina, as he agreed to join the Ebenezer Jones Wagon Train somewhere in Virginia.
On This wagon train, young Joseph Hobbs, Jr. met Ebenezer and Mary Jones' teenage daughter, Anna. Joseph, Jr. and Anna began a courtship that lasted some ten months on the wagon train and culminated in marriage in Washington Twonsip, Knox County, on July 12, 1811, about two weeks after the wagons reached Indiana."
