Jonas was a farmer, who by the time of his death in 1896, owned a farm of 100 acres said to be well stocked and in good condition. He was a Republican and a Methodist and was known to possess ability as a conversationalist and enjoyed arguing upon questions of the day, on which he was well informed. Jonas left behind a reputation of honesty and upright dealing with his fellow men. (Quote from Ethel Bush Packey's The Coy Family book published 1988).
