In 1818 Isaac Jones Jr. married Mary Mason, the daughter of fabulously wealthy banker John Mason. Jones erected a house for his bride on land owned by his father, at No. 122 Chambers Street. Directly behind their new residence was that of New York City Alderman William Hoghland, at No. 52 Warren Street.
According to court papers later, they hired James Sherlock to purchase $10,876 worth of mittens and gloves from Isaac V. Place, a Gloversville, New York manufacturer. In June that year the transaction was made and Sherlock promised to pay the invoice “within thirty or sixty days from their delivery.”
