OBITUARIES

Alva H. Jones, son of Mary Ann and Isaac Newton Jones was born in Allerton, Iowa, November 26, 1888, and passed from this life in Erick, Oklahoma, May 30, 1935, at the age of 46 years, 6 months and 4 days.

When he was six years old the family moved to the New Market community.

February 15, 1911 he was united in marriage to Vesta Cade. To this union was born one daughter, Delores, who is now 16 years of age. His mother, two brothers, Oliver and Frank, and one sister, Mrs. Jennie Cooper have preceded him to the great beyond. He is survived by his father, five brothers: Thomas of Allerton, Iowa; Newton of New Market, and Ber, Wilbur and Roy of Clarinda; and four sisters, Mrs. Minnie Knapp of Allerton, Iowa; Mrs. Rhoda O'Dell of New Market, Mrs. Clara Baker of Gravity, and Mrs. Lola Luellen of Troy, Kansas.

In 1923, Mr. Jones moved with his family to Erick, Oklahoma, where they have since made their home. While still in New Market he united with the Church of Christ and has remained faithful to his profession. While in Oklahoma he was six years a member of the Board of Deacons and found great satisfaction in his religion and the services of the church.

A good man has gone from our midst and his going leaves a vacancy among his family and friends that it will not be easy to fill.

Funeral services were held Monday, June 3 at the Church of Christ in New Market. The Rev. Ray Snodgrass of Wichita, Kans., preached the sermon. Interment was in the Memory cemetery.
