When L. D. Jones ordered samples of calling cards from Murray & Co. in New Jersey, he received a variety of images and type faces. The images did not necessarily match the personality or gender of his child’s name printed on the card. It seems highly unlikely that Clinton Jones would have chosen pansies as his signature image.

According to L. D. Phaup, Clinton Hobson Jones was born at New Store, Buckingham County, Virginia. On August 26, 1915, he married Lucy Mae McFarland and lived at “Keswick.”

Jones’ death record gives his birth date as March 19, 1868. He died at the age of seventy-eight years, ten months, and twenty days, on February 8, 1947 at 3:30 AM of pulmonary edema, a result of heart disease which had afflicted him for ten years. His occupation was given as farmer.

His wife, Lucy, was the informant and he was buried in the family cemetery. J. C. Dunkum and brothers, of Dillwyn, Virginia, handled the funeral and burial.

    I’m looking forward to learning about the Reveley family. Joanne

    Thanks, I still owe you a story about the Reveleys and Buckingham Furnace. 😉

    Sarah, Thanks for writing. The Keswick owned by the Jones family is southern Buckingham County, near Sheppards. As you know, the Buckingham Furnace was in the northeast corner near New Canton. I doubt that there is a connection, however, you’ve inspired me to include a post about Keswick in the Jones Family series. Joanne

    The mention of Keswick rings a bell! My ancestors John Reveley and son Joseph Reveley ran the Buckingham Furnace and lived near New Canton. They came to America circa 1765. John lived in Keswick in England. I have never found John’s home in Buckingham County, and wondered if he might have been an earlier owner of Keswick? I found New Store on an old map
