Elwood Morris Jones, the popular and efficient county superintendent of schools of Morris county, Kansas, is the son of Charles E. Jones and was born in Clinton county, Ohio, in 1882. Charles E. Jones married Miss Sarah E. Kester, the daughter of Miles and Jennie Kester of Clinton county, Ohio, May 31, 1876, and to their union have been born seven children, as follows: Orval S. Jones, who is now a farmer in Morris county, Kansas; Daniel C. Jones, who is now located at Buffalo, Kan.; Zylphia R. Jones, deceased; Elwood Morris Jones, of this review; Arzillah N. Jones, who is now the wife of Emmet P. Duggan, a railroad engineer at Ennis, Tex.; Everett B. Jones, who is now a teacher in Morris county, Kansas; and Carlton S. Jones, who met an unfortunate death in a railroad accident July 16, 1908.

Prof. Jones of this review received his educational training in the public schools of Ohio and in the Kansas State Normal at Emporia. He began teaching a rural school in 1903 and was thus engaged three years. For the following three years he was principal of the Parkerville schools. His proficiency as a teacher and his progressive professional spirit were the qualities which made him eligible and which secured his election as the Republican candidate for the office of county superintendent of schools of Morris county in 1908. His record in that office was of such merit that he was reëlected to the office in 1910 and under his capable management the schools of Morris county have taken rank among the state for the thoroughness and efficiency of their work.

Prof. Jones was married Dec. 25, 1910, to Miss Inez M., daughter of George Butler of White City, Kan., and granddaughter of Pardee Butler of Free-soil party fame, and a pioneer settler of Atchison. They are members of the Christian church. Prof. Jones is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
