Solomon Jones



Fran Cassidy as Sol Jones 

Solomon Jones came to Grand County from Empire to work as a blacksmith.  He held many jobs over the years including county commissioner, stagecoach driver, and mail carrier.  He was best known, though, for his twenty years service as county sheriff.  Solomon and his wife, Mary, made their home in Hot Sulphur Springs.

Fran Cassidy, as Solomon Jones, totes a shotgun handed down from his grandfather, Henry Vollenweider.  Fran's roots are in Dubuque, Iowa, where his grandfather was a blacksmith who hunted the west during the late nineteenth century.  Fran graduated from the University of New Mexico and retired to the Fraser Valley in 1993 from Houston, Texas.
