"Mr John K Jones, of Beverly township, was born near Orkney, fifty-five years ago. His father was the late George Jones, J.P., who for many years was a member of Beverly township council. Mr Jones' entrance to public life was in January, 1903, when he was elected to the council of his native township. For four years he retained his seat in the council. He served as Deputy Reeve for 1910 and 1911.

" Mr Jones is a member of the Methodist congregation which recently erected a splendid new church building at Copetown.

"He has been eminently successful in the pursuit of his chosen calling, as is evidenced by the fact that he owns a spendid 125 acre farm near Lynden in addition to the valuable farm near Christie's Corners. He has built a beautiful house in Lynden, where he has retired for the present. Mr Jones has always been an enthusiastic supporter of fraternal societies, and is at present a member of the A.O.U.W., K.O.T.M. and a Past Master of Dufferin Masonic Lodge. He has had the honor of being elected the first Worshipful Master of the new Masonic lodge at Lynden."4
