Obituary

Jared L. Jones died April 5, 1899. His funeral service was held in the M.E. church April 7, Rev. L.O. Hathaway officiating, assisted by Rev. C.E. Hill. The relatives and friends together with the Brandon Post made a large gathering. The G.A.R. burial service conducted at the grave by Chaplain Rickert, the interment being in Goshen cemetery. Mr. Jones was born July 26, 1833. He was married to Miss H.A. Jones in '57. After giving birth to two sons she died sometime during the year '59. He was again married in 1866, this time to Mrs. A.A. Cross, who survives him. To them were born four sons and two daughters. All of his children are living. Mr. Jones was a member of the M.E. church for many years. He was a soldier in the Civil War, entering the U.S. service Aug. 26, '64. He was a member of Co. E, 4th Regt. Vt. Vol. infantry, mustered in Sept. 21, '61 and discharged Nov. 24,'62. At the time of his discharge he weighed only 80 lbs., having contracted disease from which he never recovered. He has been failing in health constantly during the past year, much of the time suffering intense pain. He had the sympathy of his many acquaintances in his affliction and quite a large number showed it in a material way by taking a portion of the care of the sick man nights. For these little favors Mr. Jones was at times very appreciative and grateful.
