The Jones Family of Mount Vernon New York 1880-1936
Owen and Mary Emily Jones around 1932
Owen Jones came to Mount Vernon New York from North Wales around 1880.
He was a carpenter by trade, and found much work in the new suburb of
New York. He became a 33rd degree Mason at the Hiawatha Lodge 434,
and died in 1936. His Wife, Mary Emily Jones Nee Roberts, who was also
from North Wales, had a brother who was a Headmaster in England, and a
sister in Africa. He had 11 children that lived to adulthood, and most
were successful. These are a few pictures of the family. The Jones
family genealogy is HERE.

uniform c. 1910 on a post card RIGHT; Clifton Jones, Blodwen's son. The
back of the card says, "Here is Clifton, He's a ruffian!" Blodwen (b.
Jan 9 1900) was a daughter of Owen and Mary Emily Jones and born in New
York. The picture is taken about 1930 on the steps of the house in
Mount Vernon New York where the Jones family lived from approximately
1880 to 1936.

background. Right: Boy with horse on wheels, perhaps made by Owen
Jones, a carpenter. The age of the photo and the boy suggests this boy
might be John Clifton Jones, the youngest of the Jones children, born
December 9, 1911
