More About George Jones — Vicki Lowe
Hi Linda, here is an article about my great grandfather, George Jones.  He lived at 321 Ottawa st.  I moved in in 1974 at age 4 with my Mom, Sharon (Boal) Libbey and Dad, to the same house, where he second wife Ila Munro was still living.  He taught piano lessons to some people still living in town.
