Dr. Samuel Arthur Jones, 1834-1912, was born in Manchester, England. Jones is of Welsh stock, moving to the United States with his parents in 1842. Jones received two degrees in medical studies at the Missouri Homeopathic Medical College at St. Louis in 1860, and from the Homeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia in 1861. Samuel A. Jones served in the Union Army during the Civil War, where he established a private practice in New Jersey and taught medicine in New York.
