NEWSPAPER Issue of Friday, DECEMBER 24, 1880

From "The Newnan Herald" - - - - We are pained to hear of the sad death of Mr. Otis Jones, of Grantville. He was out hunting last Friday in company with some friends. Getting ready to start home they placed their guns in the buggy. For some reason Mr. Jones attempted to take his gun from under the seat when the hammer caught in some way, causing the discharge of the whole load in is body, as the muzzle was pointed toward him. The gun sas loaded with No. 3 squirrel
shot. the discharge entered his body just under the right arm, breaking two ribs and lacerating the flesh terribly. He was carried home as soon as possible and died about eight o'clock in the evening, less than two hours after reaching home.

Mr. Jones was formerly a citizen of Atlanta and his remains were carried there for interment last Saturday. But yesterday, as it were, in the full vigor of manhood, he mingled with our citizens and presided over the late county convention. He was a man of much promise and his early demise is a sad event.
