The National Intelligencer
17 July 1852

"On Thursday evening last Death very suddenly removed from this community, and from a very large family circle, almost respectable and esteemed gentleman and a gallant and distinguished veteran of the Army. General Roger Jones, for so many years Adjutant General of the Army, died, at his residence in this city, after a very short illness, the evening before last. General Jones was in the 64th year of his age. He was a native of Virginia, and the elder brother of the gallant and respected Commodore Catesby Jones, of the Navy. We never knew a more honorable gentleman, or one more estimable in all the domestic and social relations. His professional services and merits are familiar to the whole country. The eloquent 'general orders,' inserted in another column, of the General-in-Chief, his old brother in arms, do justice both to the personal and professional virtues of the deceased."

"General Orders, No. 28
Headquarters of the Army
Adjutant General's Office
Washington, 16 July 1852

The painful task devolves on the General-in-Chief of announcing to the Army the death of Colonel and Brevet Major General Roger Jones, Adjutant General, who expired in this city about sunset yesterday, after an illness of a few hours."
