How ?

Railroad money

One grandfather (maternal) was William M Kenefick
[2] Grandmother (maternal) was also big RR money - The WIlliam B Strang family

Alice Truesdale (wife of RS Mueller II, mother of RS Mueller III) is the family of the Lackawanna, and also Baltimore and Ohio

These families undoubtedly have worked together…
[2] On the father side, Charles Vernon Jones was in mining - Zinc, Nickel, Lead, and mostly in Kansas/Missouri/Oklahoma (the "Tri-State" of Lead, if you will).
