Henry Jones was one of thirteen children. He was educated in the common school, LeRaysville Academy, and Fort Edward Collegiate Institute, Washington county, New York, and began teaching at age 17, in Luzerne county. He enlisted in Bradford County, Pennsylvania (age 21) as a Private with Company B, 141st Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment in August 1862. He had brown hair and grey eyes and was five foot, seven inches in height. Apparently he was a good soldier as he was promoted to Sergeant Major on 31 Aug 1863. He fought at and was wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg (Penn.), 1-3 July 1863. At some point of his service he had his right arm broken. He must have fought bravely and been quick witted because on 5 Dec 1863 he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant of Company B, and was an aid to Colonel Madill, Commander of the 141st Penn. Regiment. He was detailed as the quartermaster of the Regiment until 1864, and was then made Quartermaster of the Brigade until the close of the war. Henry was wounded in the chest at the Battle of Petersburg (Virginia), 15-18 June 1864. Luckily he was saved by a small memorandum book he kept in his breast pocket. A minnie ball was found completely buried in the book. He served honorably for 2 years, 9 and a half months, and was mustered out with his Company on 28 May 1865 in Washington, D.C. After the War he returned to Stevensville, then went to Iowa, purchased a farm, and remained two years. Then he returned to Pennsylvania and was in the U.S. Signal Service. He purchased his home in Stevensville 1887, and in 1898 married Mary E. Briggs. He was a farmer and a dealer in agricultural implements. He died in 1908 and is buried in the Stevensville Cemetery in Bradford County.
