JOSEPH STONE, PIONEER, DIES AT SCIPIO HOME

The death occurred on Saturday morning of Joseph Stone, a well known pioneer and Indian War Veteran in his eighty-third year. He was born in Burbage, Wishire County, England on April 15th, 1850. At an early age he joined the LDS Church and came to America with his parents, brothers and sisters in 1858, crossing the plains with ox teams in October 1861. He made several trips to Missouri for immigrants. He came to Scipio in 1869 and has lived here ever since. He served in the Black Hawk Indian War and was sent to Holden and Fillmore for recruits at the time of the raids on Round Valley. He was one of the most daring of the Pony Express riders. He was a partner in the ownership of the first horse driven threshers and for many years worked every fall at threshing. Other times, besides handling a bunch of cattle and working on his farm, he worked early and late as a blacksmith. His health was good and his energy and ambition were boundless.

He married Miss Adaline Robins of Scipio and they celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary over a year ago. Besides his widow, he is survived by two sons; William and Vernon of Scipio; and five daughters; Mrs. Jane Memmott, Mrs. Pearl Memmott, Mrs. Rilla Coleman, Mrs. Reuben Quarnberg of Scipio and Mrs. Berneice Melville of Fillmore. There are 27 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

The funeral services were held in the ward meeting house at one o'clock Monday with Bishop J. Wells Robins presiding. The invocation was pronounced by Jesse B. Martin, Con., Leonard E. and Roy Robins sang "The Old Rugged Cross". Then Bert L. Robins and C.A. Memmott spoke words of consolation and encouragement to the family who feel that after a wholesome and worthwhile career, the kind father is entitled to a well earned rest. Burke Mathews sang "We Shall Meet But We Shall Miss Him". Arthur Brown was the next speaker, then the choir sang "Sweet Bye and Bye" and the benediction was pronounced by Lars Jenson. The services were largely attended and the floral tributes were beautiful. Interment was in the city cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Levi McCullough of Delta came to attend the funeral, also Mr. and Mrs. Fenton Memmott of Nephi and Mr. Jonathan Leamaster of Juab.
