Summary
John Hewitt Jones wrote his biography, which is typed on seven long sheets. There are original documents and letters from 1793 through 1878. Several sheets give passenger names with their embarkation and destination on various riverboat trips. A document on blue paper, dated August 22, 1851, records resolutions for establishing the Rising Sun Wesleyan Seminary. In an envelope, hand-written diary pages and typed partial pages give historic information about Rising Sun from 1880 through 1887. His obituary is included
Biographical or historical data
John Hewitt Jones was born in Milford, Ohio, on August 20, 1814, and died in Rising Sun, Indiana, on September 30, 1887. As the oldest son of Reverend James Jones, a Methodist, he came to Indiana at the age of three, and spent the remainder of his life here. He joined the church in 1836 and became an active Christian worker. In the fall of 1838, John married in Cincinnati and went into the grocery business in Rising Sun with his uncle, Jesse Hewitt. After nine months, they put their efforts in a trading boat and went down the Ohio River. He was involved in various business pursuits. In his later years, John suffered from inflammatory rheumatism. He had a son named Charles W. Jones.
