Richard Evan Jones (1839 – 1897) – Brother of Lewis Evan Jones Jr. / Son of Lewis Evan Jones
Like his older brother Lewis, Richard Jones (1839 – 1897), also gave up the struggles of Wales for an entirely new challenge in America in 1843. He and his brother lived together for a while in St. Louis, but after the elder removed to Nebraska, the younger Richard relocated to warmer climes on the Gulf Coast at Alabama. Just like his father and his brother, Richard pursued a career in printing and publishing, interrupted only by service on the Confederate side during the Civil War. He maintained a lifelong, active interest in politics and civic concerns.
Both men had large families and their descendants throughout the Deep South, Midwest, and beyond, now number in the many hundreds.
