Descendants of TGH Jones attended the 2008 public lecture given by Professor Margaret Sheil.
 
Pictured with the School's Prof Mary Garson (left) and Prof Sheil (fourth from left) are (left to right) grandson Peter Jones, great-granddaughter Alison Jones, grandson Michael Jones, great-granddaughters Meghan Jones, Katherine Jones and Gwyneth Jones, and great-grandson Lloyd Jones.
 
All of the family members pictured were, at the time, either UQ graduates or undergraduates, except Lloyd, who was a UQ Science Ambassador at his high school in 2008.  Lloyd subsequently enrolled at UQ.
 
Michael reports that his grandfather married Vera Haines (UQ BSc graduate) in 1923. Their two children, David and Margot, graduated from UQ in medicine and physiotherapy respectively.

The annual lecture is a memorial to the late T.G. H. Jones who gave 50 years of service to UQ, including stints as Head of Chemistry, Dean of Science, President of the Professorial Board, and member of Senate. Prof Sheil spoke on research and innovation policy, including the proposed ERA scheme, new fellowship schemes, and the challenges facing chemistry as a discipline.
