A Good Lady Gone.

The community was greatly shocked on last Sunday morning when the new spread that Mrs. Jones was dead. Her family, knowing her feeble condition, had been fearing a collapse, however, and a sudden one, such as did come. Her malady was heart disease. She passed away suddenly at six o’clock on Sunday morning.

Mrs. Jane Jones was sixty-eight years of age. She was the widow of the late Capt. John Jones, and the stepmother of Revs. Sam P. and Jos. J. and Mr. Charles T. Jones. Her marriage to Capt. J. Jones occurred in 1858. Of her own children she leaves two, Mrs. Charles M. Milam and Miss Louella Jones.

Mrs. Jones was a good woman and true Christian. She was for long years a member of the Methodist church and always did her duty, being never remiss in her work for the cause of Christ.

Besides a large circle of relatives, many hearts mourn her demise.

The funeral occurred from her home, on Bartow street, and a large crowd was in attendance. Her remains were laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery.
