Edwin Samuel Jones By: Dessie Jones, Reber My dad tried to give my mother anything he could to make things better for her and to make things comfortable for his family. He built the cabinets in our kitchen, he made the only davenport we ever had. Mother covered it with a padding and cretonne. He had as good or better gates and fence as anyone in Gunlock. He built them himself out of wood not wire. He was known by many in Gunlock to have, “Civic Pride”. He loved Gunlock and the people who lived there. He was the leader of many, ”Clean up Days”, in Gunlock. He built the benches that we sat on in church. The ward gave him the left over blue and brown paint that was used on the benches. He used it to improve the looks of our home. He painted the ceiling brown and the floor blue. It was sort of like, “Heavy, Heavy, Hangs over our Poor Heads. It maybe would have been better if he had reversed the colors. But nobody is perfect. My dad loved his family and was pleased with the good things that we did. When I was at BYU and had to have an operation for acute appendicitis we had a morning and afternoon delivery of mail. Very often I would receive a letter from my dad both times. My girlfriends accused me of having a boyfriend in Southern Utah. My dad wrote me a letter once when I was going to school in St. George. In it he said, “You may not think that I love your mother because you don’t hear me tell her that I do, but I tell her a hundred times a day how much I love her.” This meant a great deal to me and still does. I liked the way I was raised. My dad saw that we had family prayer as we knelt by our chairs around the fireplace or the table. He set a good example of going to church and being honest. Many sacrifices were made for his family. Because of the love and respect for the older people in Gunlock we were taught to call them all Uncle and Aunt whether they were are not. I never heard my parents criticize others and it bothered me to hear anyone do this. My dad loved education and we went to school on his encouragement not his money. He had little of that. Maybe it was his father, Grandpa William Jones who instilled this love for education in him because Grandpa was the first school teacher in Gunlock. I’ve been blessed with good parents, good husbands, and good families. I’ll be ever grateful for this.

Life timeline of Edwin S. Jones

Edwin S. Jones was born on 26 Oct 1870
Edwin S. Jones was 17 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.

Edwin S. Jones was 33 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
