HIGBEE NEWS(Randolph Co., MO)--12 May 1894--WM JONES DROPS DEAD--The citizens of Higbee were greatly shocked last Saturday when the sad intelligence reached here that Wm. Jones one of Higbee's most prominent and energetic citizens, had fell dead at New Franklin. Mr. Jones had a stroke of paralysis about a year ago, and since that time had been very feeble but insisted on looking after his business affairs. Tuesday morning he left for New Franklin to look after some teams he had at work at that place intending to return in the evening, but was feeling so well he concluded to remain until Saturday. Saturday morning he met his hired hands at the barn where his teams were kept, and had about finished paying them when he turned suddenly sick and asked S. T. Higginbotham to help him to a place where he could get air. He was assisted to the open air, but he continued to grow worse. One of the boys went for a doctor while the others assisted him to the residence of Mr. Geo. Gibson, where he had been boarding. When the doctor arrived Mr. Jones was so near gone that nothing could be done for him, and at 11:30 he breathed his last. Dr. Dinwiddie, E. M. Whitmore, G. A. Dougherty, Dick Burton, E. R. Denham, A. F. Dinwiddie, J. F. Smith and W. H. Welch left on the evening train for New Franklin and returned on the night train with the corpse which was taken to the family residence, where it was viewed by many relatives and friends. The remains were taken to new Hope church, Howard county, Monday, where several hundred had gathered to pay the last sad rites to their former friend and neighbor. The funeral services were conducted by Elders Naylor and Pasley, after which all that was mortal of Wm. Jones was tenderly laid to rest by loving hands to await the resurrection morn. Deceased was 56 years old and leaves a WIFE, TWO SONS and FIVE DAUGHTERS to mourn his loss. The News joins other friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved ones. *transcription by Kathy Bowlin*
