PFC. JAY JONES Killed in Action on July 31
A former Middletown boy, Pfc. Jay Jones, 25, who at only a few years of age left there when his parents, J. Stanley Jones and the late Mrs. Ella Bowlus Jones, moved to Hagerstown, has been killed in action in France. Pfc. Jones was one of four brothers in the Army, two others of whom have been seriously wounded. His father now resides in Baltimore.

Pfc. Jones died in action in France on July 31. Before the mobilization of the National Guard he was for three years a member of Company B, Hagerstown, and had been employed at the Darner monument works in Hagerstown prior to entering the service.

A brother, Sgt. Charles J. Jones, is in an English hospital with serious wounds received in the invasion of France, while another brother, Kenneth, who had rejoined his outfit after being slightly wounded during the invasion, has been wounded a second time and is also seriously ill. The fourth brother, Cpl. Glenn Jones, is stationed in New Mexico.
