Obituary:Daniel Jones, the son and namesake of Daniel (wrong-Lora Hunt Jeffries) and Marietta Jones, was born in Warrensville, Kane County, Illinois Sept. 1, 1843.Died at Greenville, Ohio (where he had gone to visit his son just a few hours previous to his demise) December 6, 1910 aged 67 years, 5 months, and 5 days.
In the second year of the war of the rebellion, 1862, he enlisted in the 105th Illinois Regiment, in which he served until the close of the war, receiving an honorable discharge for the service rendered throughout that great strife which lasted until May, 1865.
In the year 1866, he was married to Mary Ward.To this union was born 4 children, John William, Mrs. Belle Hunt, Mrs. Lillian Pierce, and George, two of which are living, Belle and George.The mother of these children died in 1883.
Two years after, in 1885, he married the present bereaved wife, who is now left alone to battle against the adversities of life in an unfriendly world (as is sometimes said) but not so if we do the will of our Father and put all our trust in Him, the whole world will be friendly.
The relatives of the deceased who are left to mourn their loss are:Two children, Belle and George; two step children, Mrs. Edna West, and Mrs. Wilma Clamburg; five grandchildren, Opal Jones, the daughter of John William, and James and Lottie Hunt, children of Mrs. Belle Hunt; Lucille and Josephine Jones, the children of George; two sisters and two brothers.
Daniel was an unassuming man, the same genial disposition under all circumstances, when and wherever we saw him.So let us emulate his good deeds and forget his faults as we would have ours forgotten.
At death we leave one place to go to another.If Godly we depart from our friends on earth to meet those in heaven.We depart from the valley of tears to a mount of joy, from a howling wilderness to a heavenly paradise.Who of us would be willing to exchange a Sodom for a Zion, an Egypt for a Canaan, misery for glory, peace and joy?How necessary for us that survive to have our house in order when the summons come.
Funeral services were held at his late home in Farmland conducted by Rev. N.H. Thornburg and I.R. Godwin, and the body was laid to rest in the cemetery at Maxville.
Those from a distance attending the funeral were:Mrs. Wilma Clamburg of Joplin, MO; Mr. G.W. West of Council Bluffs, IA; and George Jones and family from Greenville, OH.
The floral offerings were very beautiful for which the family were very grateful.
