Jones, Amanda T., author, was born at East Bloomfield, N. Y., Oct. 19, 1835, a daughter of Henry and Mary A. (Mott) Jones. She graduated in the normal course in the Aurora Academy, and from girlhood has been fond of good literature. She has contributed to some of the leading magazines of the country, including Steam Engineering, Scribner's, the Century, the Youth's Companion and the Methodist Ladies' Repository, and to Frank Leslie's illustrated newspaper. Her principal published works are Ulah, and Other Poems; A Prairie Idyl; Flowers and a Weed; Atlantis, and Other Poems, and in 1910 she published A Psychic Autobiography. In addition to her literary work, Miss Jones has invented a number of devices and processes relating to domestic economy and the home, the most noted of which was perhaps her vacuum preserving process, canning fruits and vegetables without cooking. She has served as president of the National Pure Food Preserving company, and although past her three score and ten years still takes an active interest in current affairs.
