Images take more than 10 times the digital space than does a short paragraph so for that
reason it seemed better to have a single page for each person that sends and article about a person, or
family, or event. While it makes the reader "click twice" to see any given page, the images and words
should load quickly. So this will serve as the index page for PEOPLE AND EVENTS IN JONES COUNTY
HISTORY. If you find a broken link, an error, have a question or wish to submit information for
"People and Events" send an email to Hugh Swift
