Manuscripts/Mixed Material [Hardy Jones]
Nellie B. Cox,
San Angelo, Texas.
Although he is 79 years old, Hardy Jones of San Angelo, Texas, is still an active cowboy. Some men of that age become cooks or do other light work (if any) when on cattle works but not so with Mr. Jones. He has his mount alloted to him, rides and accomplishes as much as any other hand and much more than many, because of his years of experience.
“My brother-in-law raised me”, says Mr. Jones. “We lived in Milam County which at that time had very few fences except for the farms. We had a few cattle and I learned to handle cattle when I was very small.
