William Thomas Jones (Henry Thomas Jones) (Lewis Jones) Jones - W. T. Jones was born near Gainesville, Ga. in 1871 and died in Raburn County, Ga. on October 18, 1900. Professor Jones, or "Blind William," as he was called, came to Raburn in the interest of a music class which was secured and half taught when he was attacked by a malignant type of typhoid fever which resulted in his death in twenty five days. Professor Jones was educated at the Georgia Academy for the Bind in Macon, Georgia. Since he left school he has been teaching music very successfully. He made friends everywhere he went and was doubtless doing the best work of his life when the summons came. Added to all his accomplishments as a scholar and a musician, he was a genuine Christian, a member of the Methodist Church from childhood.---J. M.
