Oliver Owens Jones was born in Allerton, Wayne Co., Iowa, Feb. 27, 1886, and died December 18, 1918 at his home near New Market of pneumonia following an attack of influenza, aged 32 years, 9 months, and 21 days. He was ill only eight days during which time he was a most patient sufferer.
When 9 years of age he moved with his parents to a farm near New Market, near which place he has lived all his life. Ollie was a truly homeboy having lived all his life with his mother, to whom he was a dutiful son and a constant comfort and companion. He will be sadly missed by her.
Although never having made a profession of religion he was everything that a young man should be, kind hearted, noble and upright. He was always among the first to offer a helping hand in time of need. His unselfishness and genial disposition won a place for him in a large circle of friends. By his untimely death he leaves to mourn his loss a father and mother, four sisters and six brothers of this place, and Mrs. Minnie Knapp and brother Tom of Allerton, Iowa.
Though he has gone from our midst yet he lives with us in all the winning personality that can be ascribed to the loving memory of a benevolent kindhearted spirit and devotedness to family and neighborhood ties.
Funeral services were held Friday Dec. 20, conducted by Rev. Snodgrass of Clarinda, and interment was in Memory cemetery.
The relatives of the deceased wish to take this opportunity of thanking all the neighbors and friends for their assistance during the period of sickness and for their sympathetic words and ministrations during the bearing of the heavy burden of their sorrow.
