Nancy Bellzona's Picture Book
The Joneses - Paul Jones Son

Paul JonesPaul was born May 2, 1930. He died April 26, 2005. The same day almost to the hour his great-nephew Bryce Donovan Loya was born. Paul was the grandson of Joseph Hubbard Jones,  great-great grandson of William Stephens Jones. Paul was the ggggrandson of William Beaver Jones, who is buried at Valley View, Arkansas, born in Georgia.

Paul Jones is the second son of Lee Otis Jones by his first wife Emma. He is a retired rancher.  However, he worked at land conservation for many years along with his ranching.  His work bettered the state through the many earth dams he built for flood control and water conservation. There have been no calculations as to the amount of protein rich hay he provided from  the land he owned and leased in the ranching community. This protein rich blue stem prairie hay allowed Paul to bring  an abundant supply of beef for the nourishment of our society.

Because his work covered a wide area he owned an airplane and flew to  his jobs.  On one occasion the wheels of his airplane caught power lines causing him to crash his plane.  The miracle was that he lived. However, his health was very much damaged.  During his last years he had a great struggle to walk, but, nonetheless;  he made it to his tractor and continues on with his work. Paul was the grandson of a German immigrant. He had a love, appreciation, and knowledge of the land and knew how to care for it.

He built two lovely homes virtually with his own hands.  They are in close proximity and one is occupied by his son John who now is responsible for their lands. Paul has two daughters, Paula and Debbie. He has two sons, David and John. Paul's wife, Billie Johnson Jones, lives in one of the homes she and Paul built.
