Dr. Will Jones graduated from the University of
Louisville Medical School in 1909. Be began his
practice in Gray in 1910. In those days Gray was
a mining town where people traveled by horse or
horse and buggy. He started his medical career
with 50 cents in the pocket and an old gray
mare, used for transportation. Many patients
would show up with pigs, guns, hens, vegetables
and "what-nots" because they had no money.
Before becoming a doctor, he had been an
elementary school teacher who taught
eight grades in a one room school.

Dr. Will Jones practiced in the little hamlet of Gray,
between Barbourville and Corbin. He was my mother's
doctor in about 1947. I remember that Dr. Jones looked
EXACTLY like Harry Truman.
. Of course, that was a long time ago, and you shouldn't
trust what somebody remembers when he was six years old,
but I remember my mother telling the story that he went
to some city and people were screaming on the streets:
"There he is!"
