Ruby Jones Toliver reported that James was a veteran of the war of 1812, and was given a land grant by President Pierce.

Wendy Henry reported that James Jones was inspector in Columbia Township in 1829, before Lost River Township was formed. Lost River Township was formed in 1853. The first meeting took place in the home of Rhoda Hawkins. The minutes of the meeting, written on June 8, 1853, report that James Jones was elected township trustee.
