Good Lady Passes Away Last Friday
Only Sister of General Young
Funeral Takes Place Saturday, Conducted by Former Pastor, Presbyterian Church.

Mrs. Louise Young died, at her home, near the city, early last Friday morning.  She was 69 years of age and had been an invalid for a number of years.

 Mrs. Jones was the widow of the late Dr. Thomas F. Jones.  She was originally Miss Louisa Young, the daughter of Dr. Robert M. Young, who came from South Carolina and settled on the magnificent farm where she died.  It was afterwards owned by General Pierce M. B. Young.  Mrs. Jones was General Young’s only sister.  There were three other brothers.  Mrs. Jones is survived by five children, Misses Mamie, Carrie and Emmie, Thomas F. Jr., and Mrs. James Milner.  These, being with her at the farm, have constituted an unbroken family.

Mrs. Jones was a woman of intelligence and rare refinement and her kindness of disposition and generosity were marked characteristics.

The funeral took place from the home Saturday.  Rev. E.M. Craig, of Bessemer, Alabama, assisted by Rev. H.C. White, conducted the services.  The remains were interred at Oak Hill.
