On April 12, 1914, T. F. Jones died at his home, in Rockmart, Ga. He was born in Van Wert, Ga., January 22, 1844, and continued to live there until the War between the States called him to the front. He was but a boy in his teens then, strong and vigorous, and as a member of J. C. Crabb's company, of the 1st Georgia Volunteers of Wheeler's Cavalry, commanded by J. C. Morrison, of Cedartown, Ga., he was in active service and felt honored to serve his country in such a noble cause. In the memorable battle of Murfreesboro his company lost its brave captain, to the grief of the men, Thomas York was made captain, but in the battle of Atlanta on July 21, 1864, he too was killed in the thick of the fight.

From the fire and battle of four long years T. F. Jones returned to the town of his nativity, Here he cast his fortune and began an active citizenship, In January, 1878, he was married to Miss Eugenia Whitehead, with whom he spent life happily until the sinset time, when he gave up his business and quietly awaited his final summons, He was honored and beloved by both in war and peace.
