Attached is an image taken from a tintype of Richard Jones (1812-1890). He and his brother, Samuel, were the later proprietors of Hanover Furnace and Maryann Forge having purchased the operations from their father Benjamin. They operated the furnace from 1844 to about 1853, when the equipment was moved to the Florence Iron Works. Richard was involved in numerous other endeavors, such as the R&DB railroad, the New Jersey Zinc Co., etc.

He is buried at St. Andrews cemetery in Mt. Holly, NJ.
