Biographical or historical data
Nathan Leigh Jones (1907-1989), a native of Smithfield, Virginia, served the Commonwealth of Virginia for more than five decades with the Department of Highways and Transportation. Jones began his career in 1923 as a member of a road construction crew in the Suffolk District. In 1928, he was promoted to a mechanic in the Suffolk shop. After marrying Della Marion Stidley in 1937, Jones was assigned to the Staunton District where he dedicated the remainder of his professional career. The only interruption to Jones’ service with the Department of Highways and Transportation came in 1942 when he joined the Army; he served for three years. Jones retired in 1974, after 51 years of service, as district highway equipment superintendent.
