Ananias Jones was born in Fairfield County, Ohio. The eldest of nine children, his brothers and sisters were named Azariah, Margaret, Marshall, Daniel, Thomas, Isaiah H., Martha, and Louisa.
By 1847 he had moved to Hardin County, where he married Fannie Paxson. He and Fannie had six children (one of whom died young) while in Hardin County. Working as a farmer, land records indicate his father sold him 100 acres of land in 1855 for $500.
He joined the Civil War as a private in the 135th Regiment Ohio National Guard, serving at Harper's Ferry Bridge in July 1864.
After the war his family moved with his father, Jonathan to Cedar Co., Iowa, and then after Jonathan died, they moved to Kansas to be near his eldest son (also named Jonathan).
He and Fannie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at their farm 5 miles north of Brainerd, Butler County, Kansas on September 2, 1897. Present were most of the entire family, consisting of two sons, three daughters and nine grandchildren (the article states seven grandchildren were absent), and about 60 of their friends and neighbors.
