Jerome Jones: December 13
was one of the best-known residents of Brookline.
Coming here in 1876, he was interested in the good of the town, and though not caring for office, he had been on many committees looking to the improvement of the town.
He was a member of the committee to consider the purchase by the town of the old Brookline Reservoir, and strongly advocated this measure.
Probably this purchase and its use as a public park was one of the most beneficial measures the town has ever enacted.
Mr. Jones was a busy man, at the head of a large and prosperous business, and could ill afford time to devote to outside considerations.
will long be remembered as a public-spirited and conscientious citizen.
