Eld. S. Jones

January 7, 1896 at his home in Searcy, Ark. He was born in Rome, GA., in 1851; was baptized by his father, Rev. T. T. Jones, in 1868. H e settled in Searcy twenty-four years ago, joined the Baptist Church soon after, and was a consistent member. He was a thorough Baptist, a good man, a kind husband and father, respected and honored by all who knew him. He gave his children the best advantages, and by industry and good management left his family in comfortable circumstances. Besides his wife, he leaves a daughter and two sons to mourn their loss. But they are assured that their loss is his eternal gain. May they meet him in Heaven is the prayer of many friends.
