October, 1895
Mrs. James Jones

Exceptionally sad are the circumstances attending the death of Mrs. Ann Agnes Jones {age 50}, wife of James Jones, the well-known coal operator, of this city. This estimable woman died at half past ten Friday morning, October 25th, the thirty-third anniversary of her wedding day. The October sun shining in its beauty and brilliance sheds not a radiance over an assembled household with happy memories called to mind by former anniversary celebrations, bestowing upon mother and father congratulations and best wishes, but instead a cloud of deepest sorrow throws its shadow over the hearts of husband and children whom the Death Angel this day has robbed of nearest and dearest - the wife and mother.

Mrs. Ann Agnes Jones was of English birth and parentage, coming to this country when but three years old with her parents. She married when about seventeen to James Jones and for many years past has resided in Monongahela.

She was the mother of a large family of children, nine of whom survive her, all living in or near this city, her sons business men of ability and citizens of high repute; her daughters lovable, Christian women, possessing rare traits of womanhood instilled by the counsel and care of a truly good mother.

Those living are John H., William I., Thomas, David and Harry Jones, Mrs. Sarah Livingston, Mrs. Mary Holsing, Miss Rachael Jones and Miss Stella Jones.

Mrs. Jones was a woman of unostentatious but excellent traits of character; one who saw her first duty in her home and faithfully, conscientiously devoted her life to the welfare of her family. She was a devout Christian, a member of the Baptist church for thirty years, carrying into her daily life that faith and inspiration granted only those who walk with God.

For months past she has been a constant sufferer, bearing all uncomplainingly, ever anxious to keep knowledge of her suffering from those near and dear to her.

Mrs. Jones was of a naturally lively, sunny temperament, the kindest of neighbors, the most sympathetic of friends. She was a woman of indomitable energy, possessed of vigorous mental traits; was oftentimes her husband's advisor and assistant in his business enterprises, always giving father and sons advantage of womanly keenness and foresight, aiding them in financial success by wise advice and interest.

Mrs. Jones' death brings sorrow to a wide circle of friends and the bereaved family have the sincere sympathy of our people.

The funeral will take place Sabbath afternoon at three o'clock. Rev. S. V. Marsh, pastor of the church of which Mrs. Jones was a member and Rev. K. Cramer, by whom she was immersed and whose life long friend she has been officiating. The body will be laid to rest in Monongahela cemetery.
