Mrs. Paul Jones Dead.
Popular Young Matron Passes Away After Illness Lasting Some Time.

Mrs. Paul Jones died last Friday evening at the Robertson sanitarium in Atlanta.  Mrs. Jones has been in extremely bad health for the past year and last week it was decided to take her to Atlanta to be treated, but she gradually grew worse until the end came.

Mrs. Jones before her marriage was Miss Alya O’Neill, of Dalton, a daughter of Captain Robert Paul O’Neill, of that city, who was a brave confederate soldier and prominent business men.  As a young lady Mrs. Jones was very popular and received many attentions in the social world.  She was a very gifted elocutionist and for awhile taught in the female college at Dalton.

She was married on April 27th, 1904, to Mr. Paul Jones, of this city, and as a young matron of Cartersville she endeared herself to the hearts of the people and made many friends who will mourn her loss.

Besides her husband and little son Porter, she is survived by the following relatives: one brother, Mr. R. P. O’Neill, of Macon, Ga., and two sisters, Miss Agnes Morris and Mrs. M. O. Myers, of Shreveport, La.

The funeral services were conducted from the residence of Mrs. Sam P. Jones Saturday evening at four o’clock, Rev. Father Gunn, of Atlanta officiating.  Interment took place at Oak Hill cemetery.
