Biography reproduced from page 277 of the History of Kossuth and Humboldt Counties, Iowa published in 1884:

C. G. Jones came to Algona in 1871 and was admitted to the bar, while a resident of that place, in 1876. A more able lawyer, or office-worker, never was in the county, except that when he came to plead, the least little opposition set him off, and he swept down upon his adversary with a torrent of words and violent gesticulations. He was intensely nervous, and this taken in connection with the fierce onslaught he made upon any and every opponent, gained for him the nick-name of “Blizzard” Jones. Several years ago he left this county and is now located in Milwaukee, where he has a large practice.
