Williamsburgh Journal, Williamsburgh (Iowa Co.), Iowa, 4 May 1888, p2.
Dr. J.E. Jones, has permanently located at Bonne Terre, Missouri. The Dr. came to Williamsburgh in 1865, and in 1866 he went to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and entered the Medical department of the State University, at the close of the session as appointed by the Government as hospital steward, for the Dakota department of United States army. In 1870 he resigned that position and again returned to Williamsburgh but after a visit of a few months he entered the Rush Medical College at Chicago. In the spring of 1871 he graduated with the first honors of his class. He then located in this city and has had a large practice ever since. He is a man of marked mental vigor a successful physician and one who has done his level best to boom this town. The people of this community, will regret very much to loose the doctor and his most estimable family, but the flat is fixed, and while we loose, Bonne Terre, Missouri, gains a family of which they can well be proud, a citizen of ability and education, one that will make his mark among his peers, a physician that stands as high in his profession as any other one in the state. We make the following clippings from the Critic the local paper published at Bonne Terre.
The employes of the St. Joe Company employed Drs. Suddick, Jones, and Long to furnish them with medical attendance on the monthly assessment plan.
Dr. Jones has been here since the 15 of the present month, and is giving perfect satisfaction. The doctor is a graduate of the Rush Medical College of Chicago, and has been in practice of medicine for nearly eighteen years, he comes well recommended, and is evidently a gentleman and a physician of high standing.
Dr. Long has not arrived yet, but is expected in a short time.
Wm. Rongey is fitting a very neat office for Dr. J.E. Jones.
Dr. J.E. Jones called at our office yesterday and gave us an order for some printing for himself Dr. Suddick and Dr. Long.
Wilbur; the little Son of D.E. Perrryman, who has been very low with pneumonia for the past two weeks, is rapidly recovering, under the skillful treatment of Dr. Jones.
