Garland Mordecai Jones

Garland Mordecai Jones was born June 14, 1873, in Abingdon, Virginia.  He was taken by his father to Mississippi while young, and entered the public schools of that State as a pupil.  After his graduation from the common schools he was sent to University of Mississippi, and the degree of A. B. was conferred upon him in 1893 and a year later that of L. L. B.  Soon after he enrolled as a student of Washington and Lee University, taking the law course.  Even before taking the law course he was reading law at home and under the supervision of local attorneys, devoting odd hours and vacations to the task.  He graduated from Washington and Lee, and was admitted to the bar of Mississippi soon after.

   After his admittance to the bar, Mr. Jones took up practice of his profession at West Point, Miss.  He met with a fair degree of success, but the more strenuous and wider fields of the West appealed to him, and he decided to come to Kansas City.  He did so in 1898, following in the footsteps of his brother, R. W. Jones, Jr., and entered into practice here on his arrival. 

     While at school, Mr. Jones became affiliated with the Greek Letter Society, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and he is also a member of the University Club and the Jackson County Democratic Club.

     Mr. Jones is unmarried.
