Tom Jones, Pioneer of West Texas, Dies
Canadian, Hemphill Co., Texas, Aug. 31 - Tom Jones, an early settler of Hemphill County, was found dead on his ranch Tuesday night. He had been out working with a team and, not coming in, his son went to look for him and found him in a sitting position leaning against a bank.
It is thought from wounds found upon his body that he was probably struck by lightning or that the team ran away and injured him and he crawled to the place where he died. He ate dinner at the ranch Tuesday and seemed to be in good health.
Mr. Jones was born in Wales nearly seventy years ago and first settled in Wheeler County on Sweetwater in 1883. He moved to Hemphill County about twenty-five years ago, owned a large ranch in Roberts County and was chairman of the board of directors of the Southwest National Bank. He leaves a brother, Jenkins Jones of Oklahoma; a sister, Mrs. J. R. Wright of Canadian; his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Frank Chambers and Marjorie Jones, and a son, Tommie Jones. Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
