Jones Wister (1839-1917)
Jones Wister, one of the six "acclaimed Wister sons" born of William Wister and Sarah Logan Fisher, contributes to the Wister legacy by compiling an extensive list of achievements and crafts including industrialist, inventor, world traveler, early Cricketer, and author. Indeed, Jones Wister’s Reminiscences provides the most comprehensive account of life at the Belfield Estate in the generation after Charles Wilson Peale.
