MRS. J.R. JONES DIES AT ADRIAN.
MOTHER OF COUNTY ATTORNEY E.J. JONES DIES.
Well Respected Woman Succumbs to General Paralysis After Long Illness.
To the Adrian Democrat are we indebted for the following account
of the death, burial and obituary of the late Mrs. James R. Jones, mother of
County Attorney E.J. Jones.
Mrs. James R. Jones died at her home in Adrian, Saturday night,
October 2nd, aged 67 years, 2 months and 18 days. Her health failed about three
years ago and general paralysis gradually developed. Until very recently,
however, she was able to go out on short drives and to be wheeled about in her
chair. But it was long ago known to her family and friends that her case was
hopeless, and thus her death was not unexpected.
The funeral was held from their residence at two o'clock Tuesday
afternoon Rev. William Backus, Unitarian, of Minneapolis, delivering a cultured
and comforting discourse. The attendance was large and many were unable to find
room in the house, but remained on the lawn. Many beautiful floral offerings
were brought or sent by friends.
At the cemetery the services were in charge of Eureka Chapter
O.E.S., of which decedent had long been a prominent member.
Annie Higgins was born in Stratsbury, Ireland July 14, 1842, and
came to America with her parents in 1859 and settled in Dodgeville, Wisconsin,
where she married James R. Jones on March 2nd, 1870.
Six children were born to them viz: Mary, May E. (Mrs. J.C.
Becker) and Edwin J. Jones were born at Dodgeville, Wisconsin; William A. and
Pearl E. (Mrs. W.J. Thompson) were born at Bigelow, Minnesota, and Ethel A. was
born at Adrian.
Mary died in infancy at Dodgeville and William A. died in
infancy at Bigelow.
The family moved from Dodgeville, Wisconsin to Bigelow,
Minnesota, in March 1856, and from Bigelow to Adrian in October 1879.
She is survived by her husband and four children, all residing
at Adrian, except Edwin J. Jones who resides at Worthington, Minnesota; also by
an adopted son Alfred M. Feathers who resides at Lismore, Minnesota and by four
brothers, Robert and Thomas Higgins, California, James Higgins of St. Louis and
Edwin Higgins of Kansas City.
Mrs. Jones was one of the best of women, and her death is deeply
mourned, not only by her husband and children but by all who knew her well in
the community in which she lived so long.
Mother of Mrs. G.W. Hill Dying
Mrs. W. Youngblood, mother of Mrs. G.W. Hill, is very ill and is
thought by the doctors to be dying of cancer of the stomach at her home in
Estherville, Iowa. Mrs. Hill, of Alton, Iowa, passed through this city Saturday
enroute to that place in response to a summons she received announcing the
critical illness of her mother. Mrs. Hill was formerly a resident of
Worthington, having removed to Alton about six months ago.

At the home of the bride's parents, two miles from Weiser,

R.W. Sullivan met with an accident which came near costing him the loss of sight
of one eye. The little fellow was playing with a finger-nail file when he fell,
the point of the file entering his eye. Upon examination it was found that the
file had not penetrated the pupil of the eye and hence the sight would not be
lost. The parents left Friday evening for Northfield, where the boy will be
placed under the care of an eye specialist.
