WILLIAM M. JONES. [28]—"Sunny Valley," the fine homestead farm occupied by William M. Jones, is eligibly located about one and a half miles south of North Middletown, Bourbon county, aird is one of the most attractive rural demesnes of this favored section of the old Blue Grass state. Mr. Jones is known as one of the representative agriculturists and stockgrowers of his native county, where he is well entitled to the implicit confidence and esteem so uniformly reposed in him. He was born in.this county on the 25th of November, 1854, and is a son of Josiah A. and Leoma (Talbott) Jones, both of whom. were likewise natives of Bourbon county, where the respective families were founded in the pioneer days and where the names have been prominently and worthily identified with the civic and industrial development and progress. Josiah A. Jones was a son of William S. and Nancy (Ashurst) Jones and his wife was a daughter of Mason and Susan (Leach) Talbott. Josiah A. and Leoma (Talbott) Jones became the parents of four children, concerning whom the following brief record is entered--Susan is the widow of A. K. Young and resides in the city of Paris, this county; William M., of this sketch, was the next in order of birth; Mary L. died when about forty-five years of age; and Allen G. is a prosperous farmer of Bourbon county. The parents continued to maintain their home in this county until their death and the father was a representative farmer and influential citizen, ever coinmanding the esteem of all who knew him. He was a Democrat in politics and both he and his wife held membership in the Christian church.

William M. Jones gained his early experiences in connection with the practical affairs of life through his association with the work of the home farm, on which he was reared to adult age, in the meanwhile having duly availed himself of the advantages of the public schools of the locality. When about sixteen years of age he initiated his independent operations as a dealer in live stock and with this line of enterprise he has continued to be successfully concerned during the intervening years, which have also been marked by his close and successful association with agricultural interests. His advancement has been made by a very appreciable industry and good management and be is today one of the extensive farmers and stock-dealers of his native state. His beautiful homestead comprises eight hundred and fifty acres of valuable land, all in one body, and constitutes one of the "show places" of. Bourbon county. In addition to diversified agriculture he has made a specialty of the breeding of registered saddle horses and a number of the finest horses raised upon his estate have gained world-wide reputation, among the most prominent being Sterling Denmark, Montgomery Chief, Bourbon King, Marvel King and Brilliant King. In politics Mr. Jones is found arrayed as a stalwart and intelligent supporter of the cause of the Democratic party and while he is ever ready to give his influence and aid in support of all enterprises and measures, tending to advance the general welfare he has been animated by naught of ambition for public office. His wife holds membership in the Christian church and their beautiful home is recognized as a center of that gracious hospitality which lias given Kentucky so wide and enduring reputation.

On the 31st of May, 1882, Mr. Jones was United in marriage to Miss Fannie Evans, who was born in. Clark county, Kentucky, on the 27th of August, 1857, and who is a daughter of Thomas J. and Mary J. (Rice) Evans, both of whom were likewise natives of Kentucky, the former having been born in Clark county on the 2nd of October, 1832, and the latter in Bourbon county, on the 9th of February, x837. Their marriage was solemnized in Bourbon county on the 22nd of November, 1855, and they thereafter maintained their home in Clark county until 1873, when they removed to Bourbon county and established their home on the fine farm now owned by William M. Jones, the subject of this review, where they continued to reside until their death. Mrs. Evans was summoned to the life eternal on the 16th of Augu6t, 1904, and her husband passed away on the 7th of March, 1906. They became the parents of six children, namely: Fannie, Charlton T., Pattie D., Richard M., Effie S. and Jennie R. After his marriage Mr. Jones established his home on a farm near his present homestead and since 1904, the "Sunny Valley" estate has been the place of his abode. To Mr. and Mrs. Jones have been born four children, all of whom are living, and their names and respective dates of birth are here recorded: Luella, June 23, 1883; Mary Graham, December 7, 1884; Thomas J., October 4, 1887; and L.

ALLEN G. JONES. [29]-A highly esteemed and essentially representative farmer and stockgrower of-Bourbon county is Allen G. Jones, who owns and resides upon the farm, which was the place of his nativity and which is one of the valuable places of this section of the county. Mr. Jones has made a specialty of the breeding of fine horses and in this connection his farm has gained a wide reputation.

Allen G. Jones was born on his present homestead, on the 21st of April, 1865, and is a son of Josiah A. and Leoma (Talbott) Jones,both of whom were likewise natives of Bourbon county, where the former was born on the 16th of March, 1826, and the latter on the 7th of August, 1830. In this county their marriage was solemnized on the 15th of April, 1847, and soon afterward they located on the present homestead of their son Allen G., two miles northwest of North Middletown, on the Paris and North Middletown turnpike. Here Josiah A. Jones continued to be actively engaged in agricultural pursuits and stock-growing until his death, which occurred on the 6th of December, 1889, and his widow, now venerable in years, remains with her son on the old homestead. Josiah A. and Leoma (Talbott) Jones became the parents of four children: Susan A., who was born January 27, 1848, is the widow of A. K. Young and:resides at Paris, Kentucky; William M., who was born November 24, 1854, is individually mentioned elsewhere in this volume; Mary L., who was born August 31, 1850, became the wife of John G. Redmon and died on the 15th of April, 1895; and Allen G., the subject of this review, is the youngest of the children.

Allen G. Jones was reared to the discipline of the home farm and he has never found it expedient to direct his energies along other lines of enterprise than that to which he thus became accustomed when a youth. He was afforded the advantages of the Kentucky Classical & Business College, at North Middletown, and he has been continuously identified with the work and management of the farm on which he was born. At the present time he is the owner of a valuable landed estate of four hundred and sixteen acres and he is known as one of the substantial and progressive men of his native county, where he is engaged in diversified agriculture and the raising of live stock of excellent grade. He is one of the representative breeders of registered saddle horses in America and many of the horses from his farm have achieved high reputation, including Montgomery Chief, which he sold for five thousand dollars in 1902, this constituting a record-breaking price for a saddle stallion at that time. He also owns Bourbon King, a celebrated stallion, as well as Marvel King and Brilliant King. His brother, William M., is associated with him in the ownership of the three stallions last mentioned and he is considered one of the most successful breeders of fine saddle horses in the United States. Mr. Jones is liberal and loyal in his civic attitude, takes a lively interest in all that touches the welfare of the community and his political allegiance is given to the Democratic party, though he has had no desire for public office. His beautiful home is the center of generous hospitality and Mrs. Jones is a most gracious chatelaine of the same. She holds membership in the Christian church.

On the 18th of November, 1891, Mr.. Jones was united in marriage to Miss Effie S. Evans, who was born in Clark county, this state, on the 27th of October, 1868, and who is a daughter of Thomas J. and Mary J. (Rice) Evans. Mr. and Mrs. Jones have three children: Josiah A., born September 28, 1892; Ina P., born December 14, 1895; and Charlton, born November 20, 1896.
