Biography
Cornelius J. Jones, born in 1858 in Vicksburg, Mississippi, was an attorney and political figure. He was the first African American lawyer to present an oral argument before the United States Supreme Court in the case of John Gibson vs. the State of Mississippi (1896). He was also elected to the Mississippi State Legislature in 1889, and was twice the Republican candidate for the 3rd Congressional District in Mississippi (1896 and 1898). In 1903, after moving to Indian Territory (later Oklahoma), Jones was nominated as a Republican delegate to the State Constitutional Convention. He established a law practice in Muskogee, Oklahoma, during his later years, and died in 1931.
