This Liberty ship was named for C. J. Jones (1844-1919). Charles Jesse "Buffalo" Jones was a frontiersman, politician, hunter, rancher and conservationist. Jones served as the game warden at Yellowstone National Park, and was a friend and hunting companion of President Theodore Roosevelt. Although Jones earned the nickname "Buffalo" for his skill at hunting American bison, he was instrumental in preventing the species' extinction through conservation efforts.
MARAD has no written history for the Liberty ship C. J. Jones at this time.
