Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He entered the Union Navy in New York, New York. His citation reads "Served as quartermaster on board the USS Oneida in the engagement at Mobile Bay, 5 August 1864. Stationed at the wheel during the fierce action, Jones, though wounded, carried out his duties gallantly by going to the poop to assist at the signals, after the wheel ropes were shot away and remained there until ordered to reeve new wheel ropes."
