Mrs. Samantha A. Jones

The death angel visited the home of Uncle Berry Jones, near Bee Branch, Saturday, February 29th, and claimed for its own his aged companion, Mrs. Samantha A. Jones. Funeral services were conducted at the Baptist church in Bee Branch Sunday by Rev. H. C. Bryant.

Mrs. Jones was born in Alabama in 1859 and came to Arkansas in early childhood. She has been a consistent member of the Church of Christ for 55 years. She was a good neighbor, a kind and loving mother and a devoted companion.

Besides her husband, who is 87 years old, she leaves several children and grand children and a host of friends, as was attested by the large crowd that came to witness the last sad rites.
