Joseph Jones - Oldest Man Living in Lincoln County (date
No. 242 - Uncited clippings from the "Neva Murphy Hubbard Collection" of Beth Rengers Talken, 1998.
The gentleman whose picture is printed above is probably the oldest man now living in
Lincoln county. He was born in Halifax county, Va., in 1816. He came to Lincoln county,
when twenty years old, with the SYDNOR family and has lived here ever since. Mr. JONES was
married to Miss Lucinda J. HIGHSMITH in 1842, and they had nine children, only two of whom
are now living-John William and George W. Mr. JONES has always been an ardent
Democrat, but was never an office-seeker. He has been a Mason for long years past and one
of the most faithful attendants upon the communications of his lodge. He has spent his
life in Clark township and is now making his home with his son George in Moscow Mills. He
has been a good citizen, esteemed and respected by all who knew him, and we trust that his
remaining days may be peaceful and full of joy and comfort.
Note regarding clippings from the "Neva Murphy Hubbard Collection": Neva Murphy Hubbard (1886-1971) lived all of her life in Lincoln County, MO. She collected a large file of clippings of Lincoln County residents. The majority of the clippings were without citation. Beth Rengers Talken, beneficiary of the collection, has transcribed them for inclusion in our Lincoln County Heritage Records.
