Excerpt from "A Walk Through a Country Churchyard - Autumn 1880" by Luke Smith Mote
"The next reads "Elisha Jones 1840": This was her husband, who died of typhoid fever in September of that year in the fifty-fifth year of his age and twenty-three years after his wife's death. He married a second wife in about a year after her death and raised up quite a family of children by her. But the blow fell so heavily on him in the loss of his first one that he never forgot her nor the incident of her death. He told he had been forewarned of its approach but did not understand the meaning of the sign given him in still watches of the night. He was one of the active members of the Monthly Meeting held at this place and held the post of an Elder for a good many years."
Elisha Jones, father of Mrs. Rebecca (Jones) Teague, was born in South Carolina, January 19, 1786, and married Miss Hollingsworth in 1806. This lady was killed by a stroke of lightning in May, 1817. He was again married, July 30, 1818, to Rebecca Pearson and died September 7, 1840.
