Concerning the stock certificates from Jones Oil Engine Co. that
Clyde Joscelyn sent in (April 2006): Here is a scan of a photocopy
of a Jones Oil Engine Co. catalog, and a photo I took of a
partially complete Jones oil engine about 20 years ago. So to
answer Clyde’s question, Jones Oil Engine Co. was apparently a real
corporation that sold at least one engine.
A couple of notes: First, the engine in the catalog and the one
in the picture are very different creatures. Second, both styles
are a bit like oil engines made (possibly) and sold by the Geo. D
Pohl Co. of Vernon, N.Y.
