|Davis S. Jones |
Died in this place on Tuesday night, 7th inst., of typhoid fever, Mr. David S. Jones, aged about 25 years.
The deceased was a member of Co. E, 4th P. M., and participated in the brief campaign of that regiment in Maryland. Returning home, he was attacked by the fell monster, disease, and now, alas! He is no more. Such is life! One day we put forth the tendrils of luxuriant hope and vitality - the next we are cut down on cumberers of the ground. Rest in peace.
