Death of Mr. R. W. Jones.

The death of Mr. R. W. Jones occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L. S. Munford, in this city, last Thursday afternoon at 5 o’clock.  Mr. Jones death was due to the infirmities of his years, he being in his eightieth year.  He and his wife came to Cartersville in the spring from Summerville, and made their home with their daughter, Mrs. Munford.  He was then feeble and gradually grew more so until the end finally came.

Mr. Jones was one of the most upright, substantial and intelligent citizens of Chattooga county, and has more than once represented the county in the legislature.  He was a Methodist in belief, a staunch Christian and one of the pillars of his denomination.  He was intimately known by a number of our older citizens, who speak in exalted terms of his life and character.   Truly a good man has departed.

He leaves a wife and five children, Mr. Reneau Jones and Mrs. Munford, of this city, Mrs. Cleghorn and Mrs. Starling, of Chattooga and Mrs. Wardlaw, of Rome.  These were all present at the funeral.

The funeral took place from the Methodist church Saturday morning and was largely attended.

Agreeable to his request before death, Rev. W. F. Quillian, of Madison and L. Z. Rosser, of Summerville, conducted the services and these men of God spoke strong words of eulogy on one whose good works were so familiar to them.

The remains were laid away in the Jones burial lot at Oak Hill.
