THE WESTERN STAR, 28 July 1911
Obituary of JONATHAN L. JONES
Jonathan L. Jones

At 7:30 o'clock a.m. on last Sunday, July 23, 1911, Jonathan L. Jones died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L. W. Uselman, 8 miles northwest of this city. His health, during the past few years, had been comparatively good, and he was remarkably active for one of his age. On tuesday of last week he was seized with a stroke of apoplexy, and this with almost complete paralysis of the right side, caused his death. He was conscious but little of the time during his sickness, and was unable to speak audibly. Only a short time before he was taken sick Mr. Jones was in town and seemed to be in his usual health and cheerful mood.

Johathan Lindley Jones was born in Orange-co., Ind., on April 20, 1829. At the time of his death his age was 82 years, 3 months and 3 days. He was a son of James and Deborah Jones, who were pioneer settlers of
Indiana. Deceased was one of the best of men, upright in all his dealings, kind to all, faithful as a father and husband and always true and loyal as a citizen. His wife died nearly 30 years ago. Eleven children were born to the union, six of whom survive, as follows; Mrs. Wm. Lindley, Cates, Ind.; Wm J. Jones, Danville, Ill.; Lindon Jones, Ottumwa, Iowa; Homer K. Jones, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Henry M. Jones, DesMoines, Iowa and Mrs. L. W. Uselman of Coldwater, Kans. Services were conducted on Sunday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Uselman by James Hadley. On Monday the body was taken to Parke-co., Ind., for burial by the side of his wife. Funeral services were held at Rush Creek church, near which he lived in early years. Two sons, William and Henry Jones, who came from their homes and were present at their father's death, accompanied the remains to Indiana. Mr. Jones had lived a long, eventful life. By precept and example he had helped those about him to live noble and useful lives. He was brought up in the faith of the Friends' church and always subscribed to it's teachings.
