JONES, Amanda Theodosia, author, born in East Bloomfield, Ontario County, New York, 19 October, 1835. She was educated in the public schools, began to teach at fifteen years of age, and contributed her first literary work in 1854 to the "Ladies' Repository," a Methodist magazine. During the civil war she wrote several war-songs that were widely circulated. She was associate editor of the "Universe," a Chicago journal, in 1869, was subsequently connected with the "Western Rural," and in 1870 became editor of "The Bright Side," a juvenile weekly. Since 1873 she has partially given up literary work, and engaged in inventing. She has published several volumes of verses, including "Ulah, and Other Poems" (Buffalo, New York, 1860); "Atlantis, and Other Poems" (1866); and "A Prairie Idyl, and Other Poems" (Chicago, 1882).
