Sparksville community newsletter in the July 14, 1948
"Our community was made sad Tuesday when Mr. George Washington Janes passed away. He had been in ill health for some time but had a stroke on Monday from which he never revived...He was a good neighbor and friend to all." (This entry also refers to one of the sons as E.W. Janes and one of the daughters as Mrs. Mary Brake. Another entry in the same newsletter gave her surname as Brakes.)]
