They had the following children:

i. Elizabeth “Lizzie” May. Born on February 11, 1876 in Clintonville, Bourbon County, Kentucky.

ELIZABETH (LIZZIE) MAY JONES (5) - James T. (4), Mary Swartzwelder (3), Cynthia Rebecca McCann(2), John(l), John(A); b. February 11, 1876 near Clintonville in Bourbon County, Kentucky; unmarried. The stature of some persons is inversely proportional to their physical size; a few pint-sizers are intrinsically jewels of giant energy and wonderful mentality. Such a description fits Lizzie May Jones, the conscientious and accurate record-keeper of the James Thomas Jones family. Loved and respected by all the family, she has inspired the authors (distant cousins) to leave no stone unturned that underneath might reveal a bit of information to improve the quality of this work; and she at age 80 has turned over many a stone for us.

Lizzie May's parents, when she was nine years old, moved the family from Kentucky to southwestern Missouri in April 1885, stopping for a few months at Lamar, Barton County. In November 1885, they moved a few miles north to stay over the winter at Nevada in Vernon County; and in March 1886 settled on a farm seven miles south of Nevada, which was the Jones homestead until 1910 when father Jones died on December 5th. Mother Jones purchased in Nevada a small domicile which was Lizzie May's home as brothers and sisters departed until her mother died on February 6, 1939. Elementary schooling for Lizzie May was of the rural variety - the little red-brick symbol of those who struggled for mastery of the three R's. Starting in Kentucky and continuing in the rural schools of Missouri, she advanced and attended Cooper College at Moundsville, Missouri.

Choosing teaching for a career, Lizzie May taught and went on to school as she could, stopping long enough to attend one term at Cottey - a junior college for women at Nevada, Missouri; and she received from Missouri State Teachers College at Springfield her much-deserved Life Certificate. In January 1912, an attack of typhoid fever forced a withdrawal from teaching, which was not resumed until the fall of 1917 when Lizzie May reentered the schools and pursued her cherished vocation uninterruptedly for thirty years, the last twenty-three of which were spent in refined teaching of fifth-grade pupils in Nevada schools; she retired in May 1947 at the close of the 1946-7 term. This long service, endearing her alike to pupils and faculty, was never a task. Teaching was a fascination that outranked all activities other than home and church. As a member of the Methodist Church, attending with great regularity, she also served as teacher in the Sunday School.

Long-suffering Lizzie May endured a minor displeasure, years on end, regarding her given names. For the facts, we feelingly quote from one of her several 1955 letters - "In regard to my name, my parents really first named me Mary Elizabeth, and then turned it around, shortening it to Lizzie May, and so recorded it; and they always called me that name, which I can tolerate all right - but I have a dislike for plain Lizzie. Preparatory to my retirement, in 1946, 1 wrote to Washington, D. C., to ascertain if the date of my birth were available. They answered that in 1880 the Census Bureau showed the name Mary E.; but in the end, with the help of affidavits, I secur-d twr delayed birth cert"'ficates with Lizzie May thereon, one from Missouri and the other from Kentucky." So, for purposes of this writing, we chronologists are re-christening our little ladv Elizabeth May; but we shall continue, with her family and intimates, to love and admire Lizzie May. [36]

WILLIAM S. JONES.-Bourbon county has been the home of William S. Jones from the time of his nativity and he is a scion of the third generation to be actively identified with agricultural pursuits within the borders of this favored section of the Blue Grass commonwealth. He has wrought out a very intelligent success through the persistent application of his energies and abilities in connection with the great basic art of agriculture and is recognized as one of the representative farmers and stock-growers of his native county, where he is well upholding the prestige of the honored name which he bears.
William S. Jones was born in Bourbon county, Kentucky, on the 7th of July, 1845, and is a son of John W. and Amanda (Talbott) Jones, both of whom were likewise natives of Bourbon county, where the former was born on the 15th of June, 1820, and the latter on the 2d of October, 1823; their marriage was solemnized in this county on the 20th of October, 1840. John W. Jones was a son of William S. and Nancy (Ashurst) Jones, who established their home in North Middletown-precinct, Bourbon county, in the pioneer days and who here continued to reside until their death. William S. Jones, the founder of the family in Bourbon county, became a successful farmer and was the founder of a large and well-improved landed estate at the time of his death. He was a man of sterling character, did well his part in connection with the industrial and social development of the county and here commanded the uniform esteem of all who knew him. William S. and Nancy (Ashurst) Jones became the parents of five children--John W., Benjamin F., Josiah A., Rebecca and William S. The last mentioned died in infancy and the other four children attained to maturity and reared families.
John W. Jones, father of him whose name initiates this review, was reared and educated in Bourbon county and soon after his marriage, in the year 1840, he settled on a farm about two miles north of North Middletown, on the North Middletown and Cane Bridge turnpike. There he developed a valuable property, made excellent improvements on his farm and on this homestead he continued to reside until his death. His first wife was summoned to the life eternal on the 10th of May, 1850, and on the 14th of May, 1851, was solemnized his marriage to Miss Sarah Redmon, who was born in Bourbon county, on the 30th of January, 1823, and who was a daughter of George L. Redmon, a representative pioneer of the county. Of the first union were born five children, concerning whom the following brief record is entered-Susan A. was born on the 8th of October, 1841, and died on the 17th of January, 1908; Mary C., who was born on the 9th of August, 1843, died on the 10th of October, 1851; William-S., the subject of this sketch, was the next in order of birth; Daniel R., who was born on the 11th of July, 1847, died on the 12th of October, 1851; and John W., who was born May 12, 1849, died on the 22d:of the following October. The children of the second marriage were two in number--Sallie B.,.who was born on the 21st of September, 1856, died on the 4th of February; 1906; and the other child, a daughter, died in infancy, unnamed. John W. Jones died on the 4th of March, 1889, and his second wife passed to the life eternal on the 15th of January, 1897.
John W. Jones was a man of prominence and influence in his county, was progressive in his ideas and methods and was loyal and liberal in his civic attitude. He won success by very appreciable merits, was kindly and tolerant in his judgment of others and was ever ready to aid those "in any way afflicted or distressed in mind, body, or estate." He accumulated a large tract of land and in the work and management of the same brought to bear such progressive ideas that his success was of very distinct and definite order. He was a stanch Democrat in his political proclivities and while never ambitious for public office his aid and influence were ever given in support of all measures and enterprises tending to conserve the best interests of the community. He was a sincere and devoted member of the Christian church, as were also his first and second wives, and he served as an elder in the same for many years. He commanded a secure the confidence and esteem of all who knew him and his life course was ordered upon the highest plane of integrity and honor.
William S. Jones, whose name introduces this article, was reared to maturity on the home farm and he has never found it expedient to withdraw his illegiance from the great basic industry under whose influences he was reared. He was afforded the advantages of Clay Seminary, at North Middletown, an institution that is now known as theKentucky Classical & Business College. He was married in the year 1883 and then established his home on a farm one mile south of North Middletown, on the Thatcher's Mills turnpike, but three years later he removed to his present finely improved homestead which is located on the North Middletown and Cane Ridge turnpike, one mile north of Middletown, where he owns 575 acres of well improved and highly cultivated land. In addition to raising the various crops best suited to the soil and climate he is also a successful grower of live stock of excellent grades and his work as a farmer has been characterized, by indefatigable energy and progressive methods, through which he has gained precedence as one of the essentially representative agriculturists of his native county. He is liberal and loyal as a citizen and gives his support to all public enterprises that make for the well being of the community. He and his family are zealous members of the Christian church, in whose faith he was reared and in the same he has served as an elder for the past fifteen years.
On the 10th of October, 1883, was soleinnized the marriage of Mr. Jones to Miss Emma Collins, who was born in Bourbon county, on the 16th of October, 1860, and who is a daughter of William and Sallie (Trimble) Collins. (See her brother John T. Collins' sketch on other pages for her family history.) Concerning the children of this felicitous union the following brief data are given-John W., who was born November 24, 1884, is now incumbent of the office of cashier of the Nortth Middletown Deposit Bank, in which his father is a stockholder; Sarah A., who was born on the 29th of October, 1889, is the wife of Walter S. Meng, who is engaged in farming in this county; and Robert G., who was born on the 18th of June, 1894, remains at the parental home and assists his father in the work and management of the farm. The attractive home is a recognized center of gracious hospitality and the family is one that enjoys unqualified popularity in connection with the best social activities of the community. [37]
On October 10, 1883 when William Schooler was 38, he married Emma COLLINS, daughter of William COLLINS & Sallie TRIMBLE, in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Born on October 16, 1860 in Bourbon County, Kentucky.
