Edward F. Jones

Edward F. Jones

Edward Franc Jones (June 3, 1828 Utica, Oneida County, New York - August 14, 1913 Binghamton, Broome County, New York) was an American merchant, manufacturer, author and politician from New York.


He was the son of Lorenzo B. Jones and Sophronia (Chapman) Jones. He was educated at Leicester, Massachusetts. In 1850, he married Mary A. Tarbell, of Pepperell, Massachusetts.

He fought with the 6th Massachusetts Regiment in the American Civil War, finishing the war as a Brevet brigadier general. In 1862, he married Susan Annie Brown, from Boston. In 1865, he opened a scales manufacturing plant at Binghamton, and became widely known for his new means of advertising. He created the slogan "Jones pays the freight", meaning that, unlike his competitors, he would not charge anything for the delivery of his scales to the buyer.

He was Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1886 to 1891, elected on the Democratic ticket with Governor David B. Hill.

In 1905, he published the novel "Richard Baxter: A Story of New England Life of 1830 to 1840".

He was buried at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
