"JONAS JONES was born in Howard County, Maryland, September 17, 1823, and is the second of the three children born to CYRUS and MARY (UPDEGRAFF) JONES, natives respectively of Pennsylvania and Maryland, and both of German descent. CYRUS JONES was reared and married in Howard County, where he engaged in farming until about 1833, when he moved to Somerset County (NOTE: I believe they meant Perry County), Ohio, where he bought 100 acres of land, on which he ended his days, a member of the Society of Friends. JONAS JONES lost his mother when he was but seven years old, after which he made his home with an Uncle in Maryland until sixteen, when he hired out by the month on farms and on the B. & O. R. R. for several years, afterward for six years in a flouring mill. In 1856, he moved to Illinois, where he farmed two years; returned to Maryland for a few months, and then came to Indiana, and for eleven years farmed on shares in Tippecanoe and White Counties. In the spring of 1870, he moved upon 120 acres in this township he had purchased the previous year, and has since made it one of the finest farms in the township. He was married in October, 1858, to HARRIET MADDEN, a native of Howard County, Maryland, and to this union two children have been born - AMOS and NANNIE. In politics, MR. JONES is a Republican."
