Henry Melling Jones, son of Sylvester Jones was killed in World War I. " ... first to be reported killed was Harry Jones of Enoch. Possibly the result of the inadequate training of the American soldiers as they were rushed into the front lines within weeks of induction, Harry’s death had resulted from bayonet wounds received when the battle became “man to man,” every man for himself. In hand to hand combat, Harry, who was not a large man, was overcome by an enemy who was much larger and was fatally wounded."
