John Arthur Jones, the subject of this sketch, received his early education in the public schools of his native town and in the academy. Later he was a student at Colby Academy, New London, for a time. From New London he returned to Hopkinton, and went to his grandfather’s farm, which was soon put under his management. He is the only representative of the family in the town. On the homestead, which contains about one hundred and sixty acres, he is engaged in dairying and stock-raising, having a fine herd of Guernsey cattle. His cream, of which his dairy yields a large quantity, is sold in Boston. Mr. Jones is a Democrat in his politics, while he has never held public office.

The family residence is the old homestead, standing on a beautiful eminence overlooking the Contoocook River and commanding a fine view of the diversified landscape.
