D Lincoln Jones


David Lincoln Jones came into the world carrying the genes of a storyteller in his blood. He was born into a family of raconteurs—his parents, aunts, and uncles were all consummate masters of the art of storytelling. Weaving a story himself came naturally, although he’d never considered writing a book until a few years ago.

Born in Missouri, his professional career has embraced work with two Fortune 500 companies. Later branching out as an independent entrepreneur and owning two businesses, he continued his interest in local history as well as his own family history and genealogy. Retiring from the world of business, the author has maintained an active life that includes work for athletic events at the University of Arizona. Work continues, too, on writing a sequel to this book, following the historic adventures of the Jones family.

He and his wife Barbara live in Tucson, Arizona, while the seven children from their blended marriage remain a continued presence in their lives although scattered across the country, from Boston to San Francisco.
