Kilsby Jones was regarded as one of the most notable men of his period — ‘famous’ in the eyes of his admirers but ‘odd’ in those of his critics. He was different from other people in his mode of life, his dress, his manner of expressing himself; his personality may also be described as most original. Rules, regulations, accepted modes, and customs — he was above all such things. In his personality bravery and gentleness were combined. He hated all deceit and hypocrisy. He wrote much to weekly and denominational journals ; he also brought out ( 1867 ) an edition of the works of William Williams of Pantycelyn .
Reverend John Dyfnallt Owen, M.A., (1873-1956), Aberystwyth
