|Death of Henry Jones |
Henry Jones, one of the most prominent farmers of Cambria
township, died Saturday morning at 8 o'clock at his home along the Carrolltown road, aged about sixty-eight years. Mr. Jones' health had been failing for the past three years, but he was able to be about his premises until Thursday of last week when he became ill with grip, other diseases following and causing his death.
Henry Jones was born in Wales. He came to this country about 1867 and located in this vicinity, where he was married in 1870 to Miss Mary Evans, daughter of the late Evan J. Evans. A short time later, Mr. Jones located in Baltimore, where he worked for awhile in an iron mill, after which he returned to Cambria township and had since been engaged in farming. Besides his wife, he is survived by three sons: Arthur, at home; and Ambrose and William H. of Ebensburg.
Mr. Jones was one of the oldest members of the Calvinistic Methodist congregation here and served the church for a long time as one of its officers. The funeral took place Monday, interment being made in the Lloyd cemetery.
