OBITUARY from the Gallipolis Journal dated November 8, 1866:
DIED, Adney - At his residence in Huntington township, on the 18th ult., Jonathan Adney, in the 68th year of his age. The deceased was born in Franklin county, Virginia in 1799, and emigrated to Ohio in 1806. He lived for some years on the Western border of the state with the family of his father, John Adney -- at a time when the frontier settlers were called upon to experience all the dangers and hardships of active Indian hostilities. His reminiscences of border life were many and interesting. By removal to Gallia county, the family were among the first settlers of Huntington township, where they participated in all the trials incident to the early settlement of the country.
The deceased led a life of unusual activity and may truly be said to be of that number by whose labor the wilderness has been made "to bloom as the rose". His was a life of unceasing labor and usefulness, and the rest he left with his Maker. His charitable gifts were always freely bestowed and many poor and destitute knew him as a friend.
