FRED M. JONES, WELL KNOWN FORMER LIVERYMAN, IS DEAD
Was Sturdy Character and a Notable Figure in Elmira's Business World ­ He Was Prominent in Progressive Party.

    After an illness extending over a period of more than a year, Fred M. Jones, well-known Elmira horseman and business man, died at his home, 410 William street, at 10:30 o'clock last night.  In his death, the city loses one of its most active business men, and a character known and esteemed for sturdy uprightness and independence of spirit.

    With positive opinion of his own, the judgment of Fred Jones was frequently sought by his friends upon all sorts of subjects, and during his later years, notable since about 1908, he became identified with the Progressive wing of the Republican party.  He was elected treasurer of the Chemung county organization of that party in 1912, when Roosevelt was the third party candidate.

    During his early years, Fred M. Jones joined the old 30th Separate Company serving in the of 18848 [1888?] 1889.  He was also a member of the Exempt Firemen's association.  He was a member of Lodge, 62, B. P. O. E.

    There survive him, beside his widow, a daughter, Miss Getrude; one son, Dr. Floyd Jones; three brothers, Frank T. of Seeley Creek, Grant H. and Matthew C., of New York City.
