The grim reaper death entered the home of Thomas Poor on last Saturday morning and severed the cord which bound Cynthia Jones to an earthly existence. The maiden name of the deceased was Cynthia M. Decker, born in 1806 in Hilldale, New York. She was the age of 85 years. When 18 years of age, she was married to John Jones and in 1855 they came to Geneva where each resided until death. He died in 1879 at the age of 77 years. Four children blessed their union, two of whom are dead, and two living, James Jones of Kelso, Washington and Sarah Poor of Geneva with whom the deceased lived. She was proud of the fact that she lived to see four generations of her family, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. She was a lady who none knew well but to love and respect and Grandma Jones was a favorite in the neighborhood among old and young. In her girlhood years she became a member of M. E. Church and through life was a true and conscientious Christian. Owing to the ill health of both Mr. and Mrs. Poor, the funeral held at the house last Sunday was a private one conducted by Rev. Alling. The burial was in Westside Cemetery.
