East Bloomfield, N. Y. -
At the residence of her brother, Mr. Geo. Boyce, early on Sabbath morning, Mrs. Adah Jones, aged 30 years.  She had been with us but a short time, but her kind winning ways endeared her to all with whom she associated. She possessed a beautiful christian character.  Her conversion, which occurred during the ministry of Rev. H. Van Benschoten, was one of the clearest and brightest we have ever known, and the faith which she was led to profess so triumphantly was soon to be tested by the most intense suffering.  But her faith gave her holy triumphs under the severest trials.  She often spoke of her readiness "to depart and be with Christ" and the joy found in trusting Him. Her whole sickness was characterized by the exercise of a sweet patient spirit.  Truly for her "to die is gain."  The Sabbath which dawned upon her immortal spirit was the dawn of a Sabbath whose duration is to be eternal, one whose joys will be sweetest amid the associations of "God and the Angels."

From Ontario County Journal 15 March 1912

Mrs. Alice Persons Jones,
wife of Joseph Jones, of Cheshire, aged 52 years, suffered a sudden attack of an illness which had been chronic with her for 15 years, took a swallow of carbolic acid on Tuesday afternoon, mistaking it for a stimulant which she used. Both bottles were of the same size and were in the same cupboard, and in her haste to take the stimulant, she made the fatal mistake. Instantly upon getting a swallow of the poison, Mrs. Jones cried frantically to her husband, who was in an adjoining room, telling him of her mistake. The woman soon sank to the floor in great agony. Mr. Jones summoned Dr. John Hutchens, but the poison had done its work and the unfortunate woman died in about 20 minutes after swallowing the acid. Coroner Armstrong issued a verdict of death by accident. Deceased was born in Hopewell in June, 1860, the daughter of Russell Persons and Amelia Townsend. She was united in marriage with Joseph Jones in December, 1887, who, with two sons, Morton of Cheshire, and Osborne, of Canandaigua, survive. The funeral services were held yesterday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Searles officiating. Interment in Pine Bank Cemetery.



From Ontario County Journal 30 October 1885

Died, on October 24, at his home in the town of Hopewell, Amos Jones, aged 92 years, 5 months and 5 days. On Monday, the 26th inst., the sorrowing friends and mourning relatives followed to their final resting place the mortal remains of the last of that little band of pioneers, who reclaimed from the wilderness what is now known as the town of Hopewell, and caused it to bloom and blossom, and produce many and abundant harvests. By the death of Judge Amos Jones is lost the last link that connected the virgin wilderness that once covered that township with the advanced civilization of today. Eighty years ago this present season, he moved with his parents from Montgomery Co., Md., the place of his birth, onto the farm, then unimproved, which has since been his continuous home, and the scene of all his greatest joys and sorrows. On two occasions after leaving Maryland, he returned to his native State, once on horse back, and again in a wagon with his mother. On one of these journeys, from a distance he viewed the ruins made by the British soldiers in the city of Washington, during the war of 1812. As he stood and watched the smoke ascend from the burning ruins of our nation's capitol, we can easily imagine that his young heart was filled with indignation, and his love of Country made stronger. It was a great pleasure to us of the present generation to hear him relate the episodes of these journeys, and other incidents of his pioneer life.

Naturally of a robust body and healthy mind, he took readily to the hard life of the pioneer, and as improvements of civilization went on, identified himself with them, and by reason of the sound sense and energy brought into play, was considered then chief promoter in the town. From the very first he secured the confidence of his neighbors, and when but a young man was chosen as one of the road commissioners of the then town of Gorham, from which subsequently the town of Hopewell was taken. Many of the roads along which now lay fertile fields and stand beautiful dwellings, he helped survey and build through dense woods, marked only by the blazed trees. After this introduction as a public official, he held office in the gift of the people for nearly forty consecutive years. For thirty years he was one of the Justices of the Peace for the town of Hopewell, and was honored by being its Supervisor for 21 terms. Such was the confidence in his honesty, intelligence and judgment, that during the administration of Wm. H. Seward as Governor of New York, he was appointed by him Judge of Ontario county. He held that position for a term of five years, dispensing justice with an unbiased mind and with great credit to himself. Mr. Jones retained to the day of his death the respect of all who knew him. As a father, husband and friend he was all that could be expected of mortal man, as regards those attributes into which enter love and kindness. He retained his vigor of mind and interest in those about him to the very last.

The funeral services were held at the old homestead, and the remains interred in the Chapman burying ground beside those of his wife, who died long years ago. The sermon was delivered by Rev. C. E. Perkins, of Clifton Springs, in words that filled the sorrowing hearts of the mourners with hope and consolation. Seven children mourn his loss -- three sons and four daughters: Amos and Andrew of Hopewell, and John who resides at Quincy, Mich. The daughters are Mrs. Joel Hill, Mrs. John Cost, Mrs. Jefferson Whitney and Mrs. Louis Chapman, of Denver, Col.

Amos Jones,
a widower living at Hopewell, committed suicide at Phelps last Friday afternoon by taking a dose of laudanum. The deceased went into Ryan's hotel, and stopping there for a while, called for an empty glass, which the bar-tender gave him, asking him if he wished any water.  Jones answered no, stepped one side and turned something from a little vial he took from an inside pocket.  He set the bottle down, and said, "Good-bye, boys, I am going."  The bartender, seeing the label on the bottle, called the attention of Mr. Ryan to it.  Physicians worked over the man for four hours, but he died at half past four.

From Geneva Gazette 5 December 1884

Augustus Jones, an old and respected citizen of Geneva, died last Sunday at the advanced age of eighty-six years.  Mr. Jones was born at Westerloo, Albany county, October 25th 1798, where he passed his boyhood days.  Prior to coming to Geneva, he resided at Benton, Yates county, where he was a prominent man in church and public affairs having been honored with many positions of responsibility and trust by his fellow townsmen.  Twenty years ago he removed to Geneva with his family, where he had remained up to the time of his decease.  He was of a very positive temperament and was fearless in the support and defense of his convictions.  If there was any one thing which more interested him than his religion, it was his political belief which he ever stood ready to maintain and fend with convincing arguments.  He always enjoyed good health up to two months ago, and he seemed to feel from the first that that was his last illness.  His married life was always happy and eleven children, seven boys and four girls, blessed his union, of whom six boys and three girls and his beloved wife survive him.  He retained consciousness up to the last, and when death came he was fully prepared for the great change, and passed peacefully and happily away with one of Zion's hymns on his lips, "Nearer my God to Thee."  The funeral services were held on Wednesday and were largely attended.  Those at the house were of the Episcopal form, conducted by the Rev. Dr. Rankine -- at the M. E. Church fitting eulogies were delivered by Rev. T. M. House, Rev. Dr. Hibbard, Rev. Dr. Buck, and Rev. Dr. Bull. The active part of Mr. Jones' life, comprising a period of nearly fifty years, was spent in mercantile business in the towns of Middleburgh and Fulton, Schoharie county, where he will still be remembered.  His married life extended over a period of 65 years, and was one of unbroken harmony and mutual affection.



From Geneva Gazette 28 August 1891

MRS. AUGUSTUS JONES -
The death of this venerable woman was announced in our last issue.  More than such brief notice is due to her memory.  Her maiden name was Charity Mattice, and she was born in Schoharie county in 1804 of good revolutionary stock.  She married in about the year 1820, and retained her residence in Schoharie until 1850, when she removed with her husband to Benton Center, Yates county.  Meantime she became the mother of twelve children, seven sons and five daughters, all but one of whom arrived at adult age.  Eight of the number still survive.  In 1855 the family removed to Geneva, where they resided until first the patriarchal sire was taken away by death, and now, five years later, the exemplary Christian mother is called home.  Both, through their long pilgrimage on earth, were devout members of the M. E. Church, and contributed liberally through its instrumentality to their Master's cause, and to the relief of poor and suffering humanity.  Her children will cherish her memory through life as a loving counselor and guide.

Elijah Jones,
whose death is briefly announced in another part of this paper, was the oldest native resident of Bristol. In earlier days he was a leading, influential citizen, honorably distinguished for his strict integrity and sound judgment, and throughout his long life enjoyed in a marked degree the confidence and respect of his fellow townsmen. His title of General was acquired as a military officer when our state militia was in its glory, and to hold a commission in its service was an honor to which the proudest aspired. Gen. Jones, after an exceptionally active and useful life, gradually yielded to the infirmities of age until about a year ago, when he was prostrated by a stroke of paralysis, from which he never recovered, and which with other physical ailments made him a great sufferer during the remainder of his life. His aged wife survives him, and he also leaves two sons and a daughter, the oldest of whom, Mr. E. U. Jones, is a resident of Michigan; while the second, Mr. Leonard H. Jones is the present Supervisor of Bristol. The daughter, Mrs. Mary L. Marsh, also resides in Bristol.

From Canandaigua Chronicle 9 May 1906

Yesterday forenoon while Jay Jones and John Feganscher were engaged in blasting out stones with dynamite on the farm of the former east of Seneca Castle, a charge of dynamite which had been placed to blow out a large stone exploded prematurely. Mr. Feganscher escaped absolutely without injury but Mr. Jones was terribly injured by the explosion. The sight of both eyes was totally destroyed, one hand was blown off and the fingers of the other badly lacerated and his whole body terribly mangled. Dr. George W. Sargent of Seneca Castle was at once summoned and had the unfortunate man placed aboard a Rochester and Eastern car and taken to the Geneva City Hospital where he was also attended by Drs. Skinner and Grove, but the combined efforts of the three physicians were unavailing to save his life and he died about an hour after the accident occurred. He is survived by his father, Prosser Jones, a prominent farmer of that locality, his wife, two stepsons and three stepdaughters; and by three brothers, George, a newspaper man of Elmira, and John and William of Hopewell. The deceased was a prominent and highly respected farmer, and his tragic death will be keenly regretted among his numerous friends.

From Geneva Advertiser Gazette 10 May 1906

Last Tuesday morning, a son (my edit--Jay Prosser Jones) of Prosser Jones  whose home is near Seneca Castle, while too near a spot where rock-blasting was being carried on, suffered terribly by one of the blasts. One arm was broken and almost wrenched off, an eye so badly damaged that it will have to be removed, and his face and head was bruised almost to a pulp -- a mass of blood and torn flesh. As soon as possible he was brought to the city hospital and his injuries attended to. He suffered considerable loss of blood and the shock was very great. At the time of writing this, it was not known whether or not his life could be saved. The family is one of the best known in the town of Seneca and have the sympathy of all their neighbors.

Since writing the above we have learned Mr. Jones died at the hospital before the operations were concluded. It is said that he would have lost both eyes and both hands. He was aged about 48 years and married.

From Ontario County Times 19 December 1877

Margaret,
wife of A. G. Jones, died very suddenly at her home in Bristol, N. Y. Friday evening, December 7th, at about 7 o'clock, of heart disease. Death ensued within thirty minutes from the time she was taken. She was engaged at her usual household duties at the time, and had no previous warning of the terrible ordeal through which she was soon to pass. The funeral services were held at the house, which was crowded with friends and neighbors who had assembled to pay the last sad tribute of respect to one whom association had taught them to love and respect as a true friend and most worthy neighbor, for such she had always been, even under the most adverse circumstances. The Rev. Mr. Chandler conducted the services in a most appropriate manner. The remains were taken to the Baptist Hill cemetery for interment. Thus was laid to rest the remains of a fond mother and loving wife. To the two daughters left without a mother's care and love may the sympathy of friends be freely extended; and to the husband who was so suddenly deprived of his companion in life, may he receive those words of consolation which is due to those thus afflicted. George W. Sharpsteen of Richmond, brother to the deceased, and wife were visiting friends in Michigan when the sad news of his sister's death reached him, and although he received the message promptly, yet through the misrepresentation of some stupid porter, he failed to attend the funeral. Deceased was fifty-six years of age at the time of her death and much loved and respected by all who knew her.

As Mrs. Mary Jones, wife of Mr. J. C. Jones, a resident of the south part of this town, was returning home from calling on a neighbor last Sunday evening, she was suddenly stricken with heart disease and died within a few moments. She was accompanied by her little daughter and a son of a neighbor, when she complained of a feeling of suffocation and was compelled to sit down by the roadside. Her husband was immediately summoned and a carriage obtained, but the efforts of friends to restore her were unavailing and she breathed her last just as she was being carried into her home. She was the only daughter of our aged and honored townsman, Mr. Levi Haskell, and to him, as to her bereaved husband and other members of the family, goes out the heartfelt sympathy of a wide circle of friends.

Canandaigua, N. Y. - John Jopson,
a farmer of Centerfield, a small place about four miles west of here, was found hanging dead in a shed at the home of his father about 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He was a married man, about 45 years of age. Jopson told his wife yesterday morning that he was going to the woods to cut some wood, and set out. When he had not returned at 1 o'clock his wife became alarmed, and went to his father's home nearby, to inquire for him. He was not there, so a search was made for him. He was found in an open shed near the barn. For some time, Jopson and his father, Mark Jopson, had been talking of the matter of working the elder man's farm, but had reached no conclusion. This worried the younger man, making him very nervous, and it is believed to have been the cause of his taking his life. The shock has caused the father to lose his reason, and it is feared that he will not live long. The deceased leaves, besides his wife, three brothers and two sisters. He had no children.

died at Phelps on Friday, the 15th inst., and imposing ceremonies were held there and at Geneva.



From Geneva Gazette 27 September 1889

Sad Case of Suicide - Calvin L. Judd,
a well-known employee of the Clifton Springs Sanitarium, committed suicide by hanging himself at the residence of his brother, Erastus, at East Saginaw, Mich., on the 20th inst.  The particulars are given as follows:

About ten days ago he left for his brother's home in the West for the benefit of his health.  For a few days he seemed better.  Friday afternoon the family missed him but supposed he had gone down town.  As he failed to appear, search was made and the body was found hanging in the barn.  Life had already fled.  He was 68 years of age and had been subject to mental depression for about six years.  Several times during the summer he had expressed fears to his family that he might become deranged and attempt his life.  All this goes to show that the act was committed while he was irresponsible.  Mr. Judd had been in the employ of the Sanitarium Company for twenty-five years.

The deceased was the oldest son of the late Thomas Judd of Geneva, a well known mason, contractor and builder, who at one time owned and lived on the farm now the property and home of Mr. Wm. Wright on the Castle road.  He was one of several brothers, the others being as we remember them, Erastus, Otis G., Wm. A. and Levi J., all living except the last-named and the unfortunate suicide.  C. L. took the job some 25 or 30 years ago of enlarging the Sanitarium, and the favorable acquaintance and impression then made with and upon Dr. Foster led to his engagement in a permanent capacity at the Sanitarium.  He was found equal and faithful to every duty imposed upon him.  That institution, its managers and guests, will greatly feel the loss of his valued services.  His body was brought east and funeral held last Wednesday in his late residence in Clifton Springs.

FOUND AT LAST ! -
The body of Patrick Judd was found in the slip between the Steamboat and Dakin's docks yesterday forenoon.  He has been missing since the night of the fatal railroad accident at Marsh Creek bridge.  He was last seen going down the tow-path to the scene of such accident.  It has been surmised that he straggled too near the water's edge and fell into the canal.  Repeated and diligent search has been made to find the body, without success, until it was brought to the surface and to notice yesterday by the motion of the steamer's wheels as she was about leaving her dock. Coroner Covert was notified immediately, who took charge of the body and held an inquest.  All the personal effects, including a little money, which the ill-starred man had on his person when he met his sad fate were found on the body. Having lain in the water so long - nearly six weeks - of course the features were much changed; but by a scar under one eye and by his clothing, he was readily identified. A verdict of accidental drowning was rendered.  The remains were interred yesterday afternoon.

Thursday morning he left home about or a little before five o'clock, and was seen to go into his store about half an hour later. Mr. June not coming home to breakfast, his wife became alarmed, and got Mr. Hubbell to go and find out what had become of him.  Mr. Hubbell proceeded to the store and found the door fastened, but found the key was in the lock on the inside. However, accompanied by Messrs. A. Bounds and J. H. Brown, he gained ingress by a side entrance, and not finding Mr. June in the store, commenced searching for him.  He was finally found by Mr. Bounds in an upper room, hung by the neck and dead ! He had fastened a rope to a beam overhead, got upon a stool, fastened the rope to his neck, and kicked the stool from under him.  When discovered his feet were about nine inches from the floor, and one of his hands was grasping the rope by the side of his neck, as if he had tried to save himself from the struggles of death.  Quite a number of persons gathered in the room, and about half-past seven his body was cut down by Dr. E. G. Carpenter and Mr. Charles Wormley. Mr. June was an old and respected citizen, and leaves a wife and a large circle of friends to mourn his untimely death.  Phelps Star
