Obit from Hydro Review:
December 19, 1905
Again we are called to mourn the loss that was caused by the death messenger, when it entered the home of sister Jones, this time taking Marlin.
Marlin Jones was born in Boon Co. Ark. Aug. 17, 1886 and departed this life Dec. 19, being 19 years, 4 months and 2 days old.
He was just entering into manhood; he was strong, healthy, robust-in almost perfect health and was called away with only about three days sickness. Yet during the last eighteen hours he suffered all that mortal man could suffer. Death at last released him and he rests in the hands of a just God. We know not the day or the hour, and thus it behooves all to be prepared to go when the summons comes from on high.
Just four weeks to a day, from the time his father was buried until we laid Marlin to rest by the side of his father. Indeed, it is hard to part with those whom we live-hard for mother, brothers and sisters to take the last look and say the last good-by, but there is a land where there will be no sad good-byes, no briny tears will ever moisten the cheek.. Let us live that we may claim such a home when our earthy pilgrimage is over.
The sorrowful hearts have the sympathy of the community.
