Jones Family House
The middle house, 205 Furman Street, in Syracuse, is the family home that Mary sold in December 1909 for approximately $5,000. The same day that Mary was paid in cash by the buyer of the house, she reported to the Syracuse police that the money was lost or stolen while on a Christmas shopping spree.

Local Ice Cutters
The 1909 appraisal of Frank Jones' estate inlcuded an ice house attached to the Jamesville slaughter house - I'm assuming the gentlemen in this 1907 photo are cutting ice for the Jones meat business.
