This chapter chronicles the life of Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson from childhood to adulthood. A.J. enjoyed a fair amount of privilege as the only son of his grandparents’ eldest child, and as a member of a locally prominent family. As a teenager, he was known as a fun-loving and carefree young man noted for his pranks and good humor. He married Mary Jane Taylor in 1889. He later joined the Chester Preparative Meeting of the Society of Friends which heralded the beginning of his spiritual journey.
