Obituary of E. D. Jones, Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

At a meeting of the Ned Merriwether Camp No. 241 Confederate Veterans, Hopkinsville, Ky., November 1, 1922, a committee was appointed to draft resolutions on the death of E. D. Jones, a beloved comrade and friend, and prepared the following, which was approved by the Camp:

Comrade Jones was born in Charlotte County, Va., in 1840, and died in Hopkinsville, Ky., November 1, 1922. His boyhood was spent on his father's farm in the county of his nativity, but when the tocsin of War between the States was sounded in 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate service and surrendered with General Lee at Appomattox in 1865. He was an excellent soldier and did duty to the fullest.

After the war he came to Christian County, Ky., and, with his impetuous energy, went towork on a farm and had ever since been one of the leading farmers of his county. He married Miss Ella Cayce, who survives him, and has through more than half century contributed largely to his success.

Comrade Jones was a big-hearted soul, always ready to help any worthy cause with his money and his influence. He and his wife were members of the Church of Christ, and helped to build up and support their neighborhood Churches, Liberty and Rich.

He is survived by two sons and five daughters, who give promise to take their places of their honored parents in the affairs of their respective communities.

His surviving comrades honor and love his memory.

(Committee: W. P. Winfree, Dr. W. E. Reynolds, J. R. Dickerson.)
