Biographical/Historical note

William Notley Jones (1809-1887), began practice in Hebron, West Virginia, in 1840. His son, Anderson Porter Jones (1852-1933), was a physician in Hebron and Pennsboro, West Virginia. A. P. Jones studied medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Baltimore, Maryland, and at St. Louis Physicians and Surgeons School. He did not graduate from either school, but joined his father, William Notley Jones, in his practice in Hebron in 1897. In the early 1900s, A. P. Jones moved his practice to Pennsboro. A. P. Jones had two children: Oda (1880-1954) and Latimer (1884-1956). Latimer studied at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Baltimore and worked with his father in the practice in Hebron. Latimer's son, James P. Jones (1810-1974), received his M.D. from the University of Maryland Medical School in 1937, and joined the family practice in 1938.
