Death of Mr.
J. H. Jones.
In the death of Mr. J. H. Jones, which occurred at his home
three miles south of this city last Saturday morning, after an illness of
several weeks, Anderson County loses another upright, worthy citizen, who was
well-known and highly esteemed throughout the County, and whose memory will
long be cherished by his many friends.
Mr. Jones was a native of Greenville County and was in the 72nd
year of his age. When about 20 years of
age he moved to Anderson County, and later married Miss Louisa Dean, a daughter
of the late Moses Dean. Since that time
he has made this County his home, and served two terms as a member of the old
Board of County Commissioners. He has
recently served on the Board as Township Commissioner and was a member of the
Building Committee of our new Court House.
Mr. Jones served his country in the civil war in the Hampton
Legion. He had long been a devoted
member of the Baptist Church, and has gone to reap the rewards of a well spent
life. His remains were interred at Flat
Rock Church last Sunday afternoon, the funeral services being conducted by Rev.
Wm. Brown and Rev. J. B. Herron, in the presence of a very large congregation
of friends and relatives. A widow and
six children survive him.
