Carlos Jones
Birth: Jun. 18, 1827
Death: Feb. 5, 1897

A successful and wealthy farm equipment manufacturer. Retiring from business in the early 1880's, Jones invested in real estate and became mayor of Brooklyn, Ohio. Jones purchased 52 acres and built a 160-acre dairy farm. He and his second wife, Mary Branch, opened their farm to 12 children to live and learn for a few weeks. Their idea of helping impoverished children through their farm gave way to a children's home. Incorporated Nov. 5, 1886, The Jones School and Home for Friendless Children opened Dec 15, 1887 on 7 acres of land donated by Jones. (bio by: Joyce)
