Description Sumpter. J. N. Jones Livery Stable. "J. N. Jones was born in Independence. Oregon, October 22, 1869, but at an early age moved with his parents to Umatilla County, where they stayed seven years. Moving then to Morrow County, he received his preliminary education in the public schools, and later attended the Willamette University at Salem. Returning home he became engaged in the stock business until May, 1890, when he moved to Sumpter. In September of the same year he bought out the livery, feed and sale stable of Thos. Mc-Ewen, and has made a number of improvements to it. His barn is large and commodious, being 40 x 100, in which he can stable sixty head of horses. He has a number of fine turnouts on hand which he keeps for the benefit of the public, and rents at very reasonable figures. He especially caters to the traveling and mining men, making their trade a feature of his business."
