The Dick and Alice Jones family of Chadron - 1949
In the mid-20th century, few Chadron families were as well known as the Dick and Alice Jones family. This Jones family photo was taken in December 1949, a year after they moved to Chadron from Sidney. In front, from left, are twins Donnie and Ronnie, Dick Jones holding Judy, Roger and Alice Jones. In the back: Rex, Billy, Bonnie, Ross, Janice, Bob and Rose Mary. Of course, the number of children and their spread in years helped make them fairly ubiquitous around town – especially related to sports. Con Marshall recounted part of the Jones family story in a column written in early June 2018.
