Leonard Jones

Leonard Jones

Leonard Jones was a Kentucky politician who was born in Kentucky in 1797. He repeatedly ran for President of the United States and Governor of Kentucky, citing that he'd achieved immortality through prayer and fasting and could give his secrets for cheating death to the public. He obviously didn’t do enough of these two, because he died from pneumonia on August 30, 1868, at the age of 71.
