About this title


"I'm not one of the Jones boys, I'm the old plow horse himself," wrote C.O. Jones, in this colorful autobiography. This book contains the ancestry, autobiography and progeny of C.O. Jones, as written in 1960, brimming with colorful characters and situations. This book is not just for family members, but for anyone interested in rural America from 1900 to 1960. It serves up a slice of homespun Americana written with a keen eye for detail, and devilish wit. The son of a dirt-poor Indiana farmhand, Jones was a farmer, a storekeeper, a railroad man and a postal inspector who eventually assumed surprising responsibilities for a man of humble beginnings and limited formal education. His life story is preserved here for posterity.

About the Author:

C.O. Jones was born on December 29, 1891 in Muncie, Indiana. The orphaned son of a sharecropper, he moved from place to place and worked at a variety of jobs starting at an early age. Largely self-educated, he had a keen eye for detail, a devilish wit and a colorful voice, all of which are evident in his life story. C.O. lived until January 31, 1975. During his lifetime, he observed dramatic change in virtually every aspect of rural American life, from horsedrawn carriages to man's first steps on the moon. His story is presented here as a gesture of respect for the values and traditions of the past, and as an inspiration to future generations -- both those of the Jones family, and hopefully all Americans.
