Mallory Twp.

Harrison Jones, farmer, P.O. Colesburg, son of James and Ann (Keep) Jones, natives of Virginia, who settled in Pennsylvania many years ago, and died in Alleghany County. Harrison was born May 2, 1813, and was educated in that State. He came to Iowa May 4, 1857, and bought his present farm of 120 acres on Section 29, which is one of the finest locations in the township. On March 18, 1845, he married Mary Oldham, who was born in Bedford County, Penn., Jan. 14, 1813. By this union there are six children living-- John, Thomas, James, Simon, Ely and Abram. They are all married and live near their father. Mary Ann, Elizabeth, Ellen and William are dead. Mr. Jones has held all of the township offices, and is now Justice of the Peace, having served in that capacity ten years. That he has been a efficient officer it is only necessary to say that the citizens will not let him retire. He votes the Democratic ticket.
