Samuel T. Jones 1902- 1912

 

Born in 1860 in Springfield, Samuel T Jones was a well-known businessman in the political circles of Springfield.  Jones served as Circuit Clerk of Sangamon County for 10 years, his term stretching from 1902 to 1912.

Jones was elected Circuit Clerk at the conclusion of J. L. Bliss’s short time in office of one year. Jones was a devoted member of the Masonic Fraternity, maintaining connections with the Blue Lodge of Williamsville, the Lodge of Perfection in Springfield, and the Shrine and Consistory in Chicago. The Masonic Fraternity focuses heavily on charity and service, and also requires all members to believe in a Deity. Jones’s devotion to this group reflects on the good qualities of his character that Masons look for, such as honesty and integrity.

At the time of his death, Samuel T Jones left behind his wife and two daughters.
