In memory of Mrs. G. F. Jones, wife of G. F. Jones, who departed this life on the 18th of March, 1891, this is written. She was born December 21st, 1844, and was twice married. The first marriage was to Mr. T. McMillan, who died during the late war. Mrs. Jones leaves five children; one by her first husband, who is a grown young man, and four by the last husband, two sons and two daughters. Her children, relatives and many friends mourn her departure. The subject of the obituary was a member of Zion Hill Baptist church. Joined that church in the year 1867, and lived a consistent member up to her death, was a devoted Christian, died as she lived, and a short time before her death she exclaimed she was going home to reap her reward of that better land in the sweet by and by. Mrs. Jones was a good neighbor, affectionate companion, and a kind mother. All that knew her loved to know her. Peace to her remains.
