He had lived on the pace where he died for the past eifht years, locat- ing there soon after his arrival from Indiana. Mr. Jones was about 63 years of age. He is survived by his widow, there being no children. A brother and sister also survive. The life of Mr. Jones has been like an open book. He was a hard worker, frugal and honest. By per- severance he succeeded in accumulat- ing sufficient in the past seven or eight years to clear his place, labor- ing incessantly that he might ful- fill his distiny and accomplish what he had set out to do.

Joseph Benjamin Jones was born at Carrollton, Ky., Jan 12, 1850, and died June 24, aged 62 years, 6 months and 12 days. He united with the Methodist Episcopal church at the age of 14, and the tenets required of a true Christian life were by precept and example followed to the end. He was a kind and affectionate husband, an obliging friend and neighbor, whose presence was a per- petual shushine, and a man whose epitaph whould truthfully stated that it read: "Here lies an honest man".
