James Harvey Jones

1W.M. Paxton, Missouri, Platte County, Annals of, from Its Exploration Down to June 1 ,1897, Google Book, Pg 1009. ""1894, APRIL. 1009 J. H. JONES,
April 5 - James Harvey Jones is killed by F. Marion Oldham in an altercation in a field rented by Jones to Oldliam. The Argus thus reports the case: "Zolly Jones, the only child of J. H. Jones, married a daughter of F. Marion Oldham, and had rented him some land. There had been some misunderstanding or ill feeling about it, and it is supposed both parties anticipated trouble, as they were armed. F. M. Oldham and his son Richard, with Zolly Jones, were plowing in the rented field, when Jas. H. Jones approached. What words passed we could not learn; but Mr. Jones fired one shot at Richard, inflicting a wound in the left arm. He then faced F. M. Oldham, pistol in hand. Oldham was armed, and began firing. He fired four shots, each of which hit Mr. Jones - a fatal one piercing the neck, under the chin. The victim died almost immediately, about a hundred feet from the plows, where the shooting began."
    Mr. Jones was a man of excitable temperament, and reckless, both in words and acts. He had been a party to several desperate affrays, and was known as a gallant soldier of the army of the South. Of festive disposition and generous nature, his home was the center of gaiety and hospitality. His death gave pain to a large circle of friends, and shrouded the community with sorrow. Examinations were fully made into the matter, but no indictment followed. The remains were conveyed to Mt. Sterling, Ky., for interment.
     Mr. Jones was born in Montgomery County, Ky., January 26, 1837. He was a son of David L. Jones, of Bath County, Ky., and a grandson of John Jones, who came from Virginia. His mother was Bettie. Jameson, daughter of Thomas Jameson and Sallie Smith. He married October 9, 1860, Fannie Ragan, born October 17, 1842, a daughter of William Ragan. She is a sister of Mrs. Elihu Park. After serving three years under Gen. John Morgan, in Company I, 8th Kentucky Cavalry, C. 8. A., he came with his family to Platte in October, 1869, and settled six miles east of Platte City, upon a large and fertile farm. Mrs. Jones possesses intelligence, spirit, and vivacity; is a proficient in music, and now holds the position of president of the County Lodge of Daughters of the Confederacy. Their only child is W. Zolly Jones, born November 24, 1862; married April 17, 1884, Junie Oldham, daughter of F. M. (See.)"."
