Bio: James W. Jones, Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana

James W. Jones, president of the Farmers' Alliance of Natchitoches Parish, was born in Georgia, December 18, 1838, and passed his boyhood and youth under the parental roof. In 1859 he came to Louisiana, and settled in what is now Grant Parish, where he made his home until 1887, when he moved to his present place of residence in Natchitoches Parish, one and a half miles from the city.
In 1861 he joined Company C, or what was known at the Winn Rifles, rose to the position of second lieutenant, and was a brave and efficient officer, serving until the close of the war. He was wounded at the battle of Vicksburg. Since the war he has been engaged in farming and has made a success of this occupation, as a glance over his well kept place will clearly indicate to the beholder.
He took a leading part in the Grange movement, and has always taken the same kind of interest in the Farmers' Alliance movement. In July, 1890 he was elected president of the last named organization of this parish, and is eminently fitted for that position.

He was married in the year 1863, to Miss Annie M. Dobbs, who was born in Marietta, Ga., in 1842. They have five children who are named as follows: Rowena, Lillie, James R., Hattie and Ernest W.
Mr. Jones is a close adherent to Democratic principles, and socially is a
member of the Masonic fraternity, Phoenix Lodge No. 38 of this city. He
joined this society in Montgomery, La, and for about four years was master of Lodge No. 168 of that place.
He and Mrs. Jones are members of the Baptist Church. Mr. Jones was the eldest of four children, three now living, born to James and Harriet (Cooper) Jones, natives of Georgia and Virginia, respectively. The father died in his native State, in 1839, when about thirty years of age, and the mother also died in that State, in 1847, when about twenty eight or thirty years of age. The maternal grandfather of our subject, Rev. John W. Cooper, was a minister in the Baptist church for about thirty five or forty years. He died in Georgia, in 1849, at the age of seventy years.
