Clement H. Jones, M. D., a prominent physician and surgeon of Galena, of which city he is also mayor, is a Kentuckian by birth. He was born at Flemingsburg, Ky., Oct. 12, 1865, a son of William B. and Sarah C. (Shahan) Jones, the father being a native of Louisville, Ky., and the mother a native of Indianapolis, Ind. Dr. Jones' father was a physician and surgeon. He was a graduate of the Scudder School of Medicine at St. Louis; came to Kansas in 1876, locating first at Florence, but later spent fifteen years on a farm in Marion county, and then, about 1896, he located in Galena, where he practiced his profession up to his death, which occurred in 1904, when he had passed the sixty-eighth milestone in the course of an exemplary life. His wife survived him four years, and died at Galena at the age of sixty-seven. They had seven sons, of whom Dr. Clement H. is the third oldest. He obtained a common school education, and began the study of medicine under his father's preceptorship. He was granted a certificate to practice medicine in Cherokee county in 1893. He practiced in that county up to 1899, in which year he located in Galena, where he soon forged to the fore in his profession, and where he has gained and sustained a large and desirable practice. With the advancements of his profession Dr. Jones has kept abreast. He is a member of the Cherokee county and the Kansas state medical societies and of the American Medical Association. In politics Dr. Jones is an ardent Democrat. He has long been a leader in local politics, and in 1911 was honored with an election to the mayoralty of Galena. In 1900 occurred the marriage of Dr. Jones and Miss Olive B. Adams, of Des Moines, Iowa. Fraternally Jones is a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Galena lodge. He has forged his own way to success in life, and is one Galena's leading citizens, as well as physicians.
