Barnett L. Jones is the son of John W. Jones(see other biography)and Mary Wolfe(1822-1859). B. L. Jones received his education in the common schools of Polk and Adams counties, completing his studies at the Baptist University at Des Moines. He then began teaching, in which profession he was engaged for some time. In 1878 he turned his attention to agricultural pursuits in Lincoln township, and in 1883 came to Carbon and engaged in his present business.
He was married, in 1876, to Ella J. Hall, who was born in Pennsylvania and reared in Iowa, daughter of William and Mary Hall. They have two children: Willie P. and B. L., Jr. Their second born, Ruby May, died at the age of two years.
Politically Mr. Jones is a Democrat and is identified with the best elements of his party; he is a member of the Democratic Central Committee. During President Cleveland's administration he was postmaster of Carbon. He is a notary public and does all kinds of legal business; he has been active in educational matters, and is now serving as a member of the school board. In short, every good cause calculated to promote the best interests of the town and county receives from him a hearty support.
