Asa R Jones was the youngest child of Abraham and Mary Parr Jones. He never married and lived with his sisters Racheal and Susan his entire adult life. The monument has each of their names inscribed on a separate side.

From Newton Press: April 1897

The death of Asa Jones was quite a shock to this neighborhood. Mr. Jones was kicked by a vicious horse. When first discovered he was wandering about in the yard aimlessly, but soon afterward died. He was kicked on the head. There were some sensational rumors afloat, but all of them proved groundless, as the tragedy occurred as narrated. Mr. Jones was a good citizen and highly respected in this community. He was unmarried.

Thanks for the nice photo of my first cousin's marker. I found about 50 ancestors buried in Brockville.
