All you can do is post a follow-up, as you did, to make a correction -- there is no way tha I know of to change a message entry at sites like this.

You probably have this, but I have copied at the end of this message what I have for the next several couple generations after Park(e) Colegrove, who was named after his mother Jemima Park(e).

I have seen Jemima (nee Parke) Colegrove's tombstone in the Col(e)grove family plot in the Riverside Cemeter in Stirling, CT, in the hamlet known today as Oneco -- it is just a half mile west of the old Colegrove homestead farm which was across across the state line in RI, lierally bordering on CT, and located along the same Moosup Rver that the Riverside Cemetery flanks a bit down stream. A bit west of Oneco was the prosperous colonial era crossroads village of Stirling Hill, which would have been the closest village to the Colegrove homestead. Oneco and Stirling Hill were both still part of the Town of Vountown until the end of the eigthteenth century (until 1798 as I recall), when Stirling was separated as a new town.

This homestead farm, which was in an area known a "Seven Mens Land", was purhased when still part of Warwick, RI, by Jemima's father-in-law, Stephen Colegrove who purchased two tracts of land here during 1730 -- after 1743, this part of Warwick was separated into the new town of Coventry. Prior to 1730, land records shown that Stephen lived briefly in Killingly, CT, a bit to the north of Oneco, and before that in South Kingstown, RI, not far from from the extended Colegrove family compound of the immigrant Francis and his four sons (Eliezer, Francis, John, & Stephen) in the area where modern day Exeter, Richmond, North Kingstown, and South Kingstown come together. Before Stephen and his fist wife Welthian settled in South Kingstown, the couple had lived briefly in Jamestown (during at least 1724-1725), I speculate in association with Welthian's side of the family.

I presume Jonathan's father Stephen to have grown up in that part of Westerly that is now Richmond, along the Beaver River just north of today's village of Shannock, where his father, the immigrant Francis, had settled following his 1705 land purchase there. Francis was actually a land owner in Westerly no later than 1700 (when he became a Freeman of Westerly) and perhaps as early as 1693 (when he was witness to a Westerly deed).

A few years after Francis' son (that is, Jonathan's father) Stephen purchased the farm on the CT border near Oneco, Stephen purchased a town lot in what we think of today as Warwick proper, quite a distance to the east, on the Pawtuxet River near Narrangansett Bay, though he retained land on the CT border until 1754. Jonathan remained in Coventry as a young adult, but moved acoss the state line to Plainfield, CT, in 1769, four years before his first child was born. Perhaps he met his wife Jemima after his move to Plainfield. Perhaps he met while living on the rural homestead on the Coventry/Stirling line. She was supposedly born in 1741 in Griswold, CT, which is in the same immediate area as Coventry, Stirlling, Voluntown, and Plainfield.
