     Raymond Jones was born on 31 Dec 1889 in Mt. Vernon, Indiana.8,9,10
     His mother died on 8 May 1893, when Raymond was 3 years old.20 He appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Black Twp., Posey Co., Indiana, in the household of his father, Henry B. Jones, and stepmother, Charlotte M. Baker.4 He appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of Black Twp., Posey Co., Indiana, in the household of his father and stepmother.5
     Raymond registered for the draft for World War I on 5 Jun 1917, while living at 908 West 4, Mt. Vernon, Indiana, reporting he was self-employed as a timber cutter. He claimed exemption from the draft because he was the sole support of father, who was not able perform manual labor.21
     Raymond enlisted in the U.S. Army on 6 Oct 1917. He served in the 681 motor transportation company in World War I. He was discharged 4 Aug 1919 with the rank of sergent.22,23

     Raymond married first Daisy Barnett, daughter of John Henry Barnett and Malindia Ficklin, on 10 Aug 1925 in Santa Ana, California, with Kenneth E. Morrison, justice of the peace, officiating.11 Raymond and Daisy both said on the application for their marriage license that this was their first marriage. She seems to have ignored the fact that she had married Robert H. Trisler in Spencer Co., Indiana, in 1908 and Evertt Jones in Warrick Co., Indiana, in 1912.26,27 It appears they had been holding themselves as married before their marriage, as he appears in the 1923 Long Beach city directory with wife Daisy, living at 841 W 4th.25
     They seem to have been separated by 1926. He is listed as living at 233 E 10th. A Mrs. Daisy Jones is listed as living at 415 Elm Ave., rear. She has not been found in the area after that, and may have soon returned to Indiana, where she subsequently married again.28

     Raymond appeared on the 1930 Federal Census of Long Beach, Los Angeles Co., California, at 845 East 6th St., enumerated 12 Apr 1930, reporting he was renting his home, for $30 per month. He appears to have been living in a building of over 20 apartments.29
     Raymond married second Esther Leona Glabe, daughter of Levi Glabe and Mary M. Schuck, on 28 Aug 1933 in Long Beach, Los Angeles Co., California, with Rev. F. W. Paap officating.14,15 Raymond reported that this was his third marriage in the application for marriage license, but no evidence of another second marriage has been found.
     Raymond and Esther appeared on the 1940 Federal Census of Long Beach, Los Angeles Co., California, at 1901 18th St., enumerated 15 Apr 1940, reporting they owned a home valued at $2,500. They reported they had lived in the same house in 1935. Three lodgers were listed as living with them, Opal Jacobs and apparently her 12-year-old daughter Donna, and William Heynechuk. There were also two individuals listed as renting apartments in their building, paying rent of $16 and $13 per month respectively.30
     Raymond registered for the draft for World War II on 26 Apr 1942, while living at 1901 Orange Ave., Long Beach, Los Angeles Co., California, reporting he was employed by Neilsen Pump Co., in Long Beach.21
     He was a machinist in Indiana. He worked as a mechanic for Pacific Electric Railway after he moved to California. He became an automobile mechanic by 1930.31,32,33,34,35 He returned to his trade as a machinist by 1940, when he worked for Pacific Electric. That year he reported having worked 40 hours the last week of March, and 48 weeks the prior year, earning $1,300.36
