Jonas Bruce
  • Born: 6 Oct 1753, Woburn MA
  • Died: Bef 24 Jun 1826, Londonderry VT

  General notes:


  Events in his life were:

  • He worked in 1782-1786 as a silversmith in Bolton MA
    Though he probably started working by 1773 if he followed a usual apprenticeship, his career was continuely interrupted by three terms of service in the Revolution and changes of location looking for a promising opportunity. He is known to have been living in Woburn, Berlin, and Winchendon MA, before settling in Bolton. It would seem that after 1786 silversmithing became a secondary pursuit to farming. Some time after 1801 he moved his family to Winchester NH and disappears from the record. 9
