STELLA CEMETERY (aka Pleasant Hill), Stella, GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE

Obituary; The Pulaski Citizen 26 Dec 1912

A. J. "Uncle Jack" Jones, as he was familiarly called by his friends, died suddenly at his home near Minor Hill, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, his sudden death being a sincere shock to his neighbors. He had not been feeling well for a day or two, but was up going around the place, looking after some work. He ate dinner as usual on Saturday and went to his bed and lay down. When some member of the family went to arouse him they found that he was dead. Heart trouble is said to have been the cause. Mr. Jones was over 83 years old, and had lived an exemplary life, being kind and charitable to those who needed alms, and was liked by all who knew him for his goodness of heart. Just two months since his wife passed into the beyond and had expressed himself that he too soon would follow. The funeral was conducted Monday by Rev. Mr. Hendrix of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and the interment was beside his wife at Pleasant Hill graveyard. Mr. Jones leaves five children, all grown and married, two sisters, Mrs. M. Bassham and Miss Fannie Jones of this county and one brother residing in Texas. In the death of "Uncle Jack" Jones, Giles County loses one of its best citizens. Peace to his dust.
