DR. C. G. JONES, junior member of the firm of H.K. and C.G. Jones, and who, with his brother, commands a lucrative practice in Jacksonville and vicinity, was born in Rappahannock County, Va., Sept. 3, 1827. He was taken by his parents to Lincoln County, Mo., when a mere child, and spent his time there upon the farm and in attendance at the common school until a youth of sixteen years. He then became a student in Troy Academy, in Lincoln County, Mo., and later, in 1849, of Illinois College. From this institution he was graduated in 1854. Then returning to Missouri, he organized and conducted an academy in Troy, while he devoted his leisure hours to the study of medicine.

Our subject, about 1866, came to Jacksonville and completed his medical studies under the instruction of his brother. During the winters of 1866-67 and 1867-68, he attended the St. Louis Medical College, from which he was graduated, and soon afterward became associated with his brother in the practice which they have since made extensive and profitable. He was married July 22, 1856, to Miss Sarah Wing, of Troy, Mo., who was born March 28, 1828, in that place. The parents of Mrs. Jones were Horace B. and Mary (Perkins) Wing, who were natives of Vermont and are now deceased.

In the sketch of Dr. H. K. Jones, found elsewhere in this volume, will be noted the parental history. Our subject, politically, is an earnest Republican, and, with his estimable wife, a member of the Congregational Church. Dr. Jones is connected with most of the medical associations of Illinois, including the Morgan County Medical Society, besides the Macroscopical Society of Jacksonville, the American Philosophical Society and the Jacksonville Literary Club. His resident is in the western part of the city, near that of his brother.
