In researching the Cone's mainly in the Southern States it
appears that Neil Machone is the progentor of many of these lines.
For many years after the Some Account of the Cone family In America
the consensus was that Daniel Machoe was the blue blood of all Cone
Lineages that sought reconginition in the SAR and DAR.
One thing that is most apparent is that Daniel was Daniel Machoe with
the rooster of the prisoners followed by Neile Machone. The "N" was
the only letter of difference in the spelling.
Certainly the most obvious thing in common was two points. First
these were prisoners taken at Worchester in 1651 and transported in
1652 to Mass.The spelling and proxiemity of the Machoe and Machone on
the list as presented across the internet.
Neile Machone actualy in the records did not change to Cone as there
is his Last Will and Testament as recorded in the Isle of WIght
Parrish, Virginia in 1680. Adding too a William Maccone recorde his
Will in the same parrish in 1710.
Then it appears an Aaron Peter Cone turned up in North Carolina which
it does semm this may have been the transformation point of the
Maccone to Cone. Peter had several sons yet during the American
Revolution his namesake saw things to become a loyalist or Tory
poloticaly remaining loyal to the King, yet after all was said and
done this Cone imagrated to Nova Scotia and the State of North
Carolina seized property and removed these partys from records.
I dont see where Tom Cone's Jesse comes in but there were several
Jesse Cones. DNA testing does show that many the Cones south of the
Mason Dixon do not relate to those that can successfuly say they are
of Daniel Mchoe "Cone" which leads some to question any relation back
beyond the voyage of the John and Sara. I add that the Book SACFA was
done at turn of the century by mail replys to W.W.Cone and although a
true work of earnest, there are some conflicts mainly in the lineages
of the Southern group.
