Jones, John E., M. D., was born in Cleveland, Ohio, a son of John W. and, Alice A. (Robinson) Jones. He removed from Cleveland to Watertown with his parents when only five years old. Dr. Jones was educated in the city schools of Watertown and was graduated from the high school in the class of 1891. After his graduation he entered the office of Dr. O. C. Eastman of Watertown, where he remained two years, when the family removed to Buffalo and he completed his medical studies in the University of Buffalo. He was for some time a physician in the medical and surgical departments of the General Hospital at Buffalo, after which he removed to Evans Mills and began practice, succeeding the late Dr. L. E. Jones, whose office and residence he purchased in 1896. Dr. Jones enjoys a practice extending throughout Leray and adjoining townships. In 1893 he married Lottie, a daughter of Mrs. Erretta Moore of Lorraine. His father, John W. Jones, will be remembered in Watertown as a former respected resident and well known contractor and builder, a business he is still engaged in in the city of Buffalo. Dr. Jones can point with pride to patriotic elements in the family, six of his relatives serving the cause of the Union during the late Civil war, two having fallen at Gettysburg, one, Lieut. Melvin Bovee, was killed while bravely defending a position of importance, July 3, 1863. Dr. Jones is a member of Court Evans Mills No. 1,552, I. O. Foresters, and is at present court physician; also is a member of the Jefferson County Medical Society.
