Ben L. Jones, a young attorney-at-law of Coffeyville, Kan., who has just opened what promises to be a successful career in the legal profession, is a native son of Kansas, having been born in Montgomery county, this state, on Oct. 29, 1884. He is the son of Joseph R. Jones and his wife, whose maiden name was Emma Davis, and up to the age of ten years he was reared on a farm in Montgomery county. Thereafter his home was in Coffeyville, where he attended the public schools. At the age of nineteen he became a carrier in the postal service and was thus employed for two years. He then entered the University of Kansas, at Lawrence, where he was graduated from the law department in 1910, and in September of that same year he formed a copartnership with Charles D. Ise, with whom he entered the practice of law at Coffeyville, where he has already met with a due measure of success. Politically he is a Democrat, and fraternally a Master Mason. He is also a member of the Acacia fraternity of the University of Kansas. Mr. Jones was elected one of the commissioners of the city of Coffeyville, April 4, 1911, and has charge of both light and water plants of said city.
