Gospel preacher and President of Burritt College. He married Mary Ann Davis, Aug. 12, 1852 at Bedford, TN.
Isaac N. Jones is a son of Elder Rees Jones. He has been a preacher and teacher of note, and is spending his sunset years at Manchester Tenn. He is well along in the seventies, but retains a vigorous recollection of early times. So well is his sketch liked, that it is here presented entire, with only a few insignificant changes in punctuation and verbiage. It repeats some of the facts stated in the preceding pages, and also gives expression to some of the same thoughts in regard to the rise of the religious revolution with which it deals; but those facts are, and thoughts should be, common property to the church; and so a few repetitions will probably not be objectionable.
"For a time (I can tell neither when nor how long) Daniel Travis, having Andrew P. Davis for his Timothy, preached at the house of Isaac Jones (my grand-father), on or near Charles' Creek, three or four miles north of McMinnville, the county-site of Warren County. Daniel Travis baptized my father and mother before they were married. Many others, among them my grand-mother and others of her children, were also baptized into Christ in obedience to his command, and stood upon the basis heretofore given." -- Isaac N. Jones
