Capitol Construction Workers

1898-1899 St. Paul and Minneapolis City Directories. Allen Jones was born in Wales in 1860. He lived in Minneapolis at this address for many years but worked in St. Paul on the Capitol in 1898-99. He was active in the Stone Cutters Union and the St. Paul Globe reported in December of 1899 that Jones had won the raffle of the toolbox of deceased stone cutter William Hays. (This was a traditional fundraiser for survivors.) Hays was a fellow Capitol worker.
