Thomas B. Jones, M.D., is a native of Spencer County, this State, his birth occurring November 28, 1841. He is one of five children born to Thompson M. and Nancy L. (Oskin) Jones, the former a native of Kentucky, from whence he removed to the county where our subject was born, when it was in its infancy. He died in July, 1856. Dr. Jones' youth and early manhood was passed on the farm, during the winter months of some of the ears attending country schools. October 9, 1861, he volunteered in his country's cause in Company C., Forty-second Regiment of Indiana Infantry, and on the company's organization was chosen Corporal. He was gradually advanced from that position, occupying all the higher offices of the company, excepting that of Second Lieutenant, until he was discharged as Captain, July 16, 1865. Not recounting the smaller engagements in which he was a participant in the battles of Champion Hills, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, Mission Ridge, Resaca, all the battles from Chattanooga to Atlanta, from Atlanta to the sea with Gen. Sherman, up through the Carolinas and finally to Washington D.C. Returning from the war he studied medicine at Centerville until 1870, graduating the spring of that ear from the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati. For a time he practiced his profession at Pleasantville in Pike County, but in March, 1873, removed to Lynnville, where he has since resided and where he has a select practice established. Dr. Jones is a Republican, a member of the Chapter in Masonry and is also an Odd Fellow and a member of the G.A.R. April 25, 1872, he wedded Emma M. Zimmerman, by whom he is the father of three children named Alva C., Curran B. and Tilman M. Both he and wife belong to the Methodist Episcopal Church.
