The funeral of A. D. Wade of Mulberry, the young man who was recently drowned in the river at Attica was held at the home of his father, Dr. Thomas Wade at Mulberry one week ago last Thursday and it is said to have been the largest ever seen in the place. Mr. Wade was 23 years old, a model young man and loved by all who knew him. His future prospects were bright, having just finished his course a years ago at Ladoga, and was possessed of an uncommonly bright mind and sound judgment. He is said to have soon been married to an estimbale young lady of Ladoga. The case is doubly a sad one. Clement G. Jones, an old and highly respected citizen of Warren County, died on Sunday afternoon at the home of his son-in-law, Jacob P. Isley in this city of old age. He was 81 years and 10 months old. The deceased was born in Maryland Sept. 5, 1811. He moved with his family to Delaware, where he received his early education. He then went to Chillicothe, O., and remained until 1831, when he came to Warren Township, Warren County on foot. He entered eighty acres of land, which he lived upon until 1849, when he bought his present place. By hard work and strict economy he acquired 2,400 acres of land, one half of which he deeded to his children. During the first years of his residence in Warren County, his father died and in settling up the estate Clem made three trips to Delaware and back again on foot, a distance of about 1,200 miles. During these trips he traveled an average of fifty miles a day. He was married twice, his first wife being Miss Fannie Cameron, who lived only four years. He then married Miss Nancy Russell, who survives him. To them were born two sons and four daughters, Issac and Curtis, Mrs. J. P. Isley, Mrs. John W. Rhode, Mrs. Henry Jones, and Mrs. Ellen Brier. The four daughters survive him, with twenty-five grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren. Mr. Jones was vice president of the Citizens' National Bank of this city and President of the Central Bank at West Lebanon. He was a man of pure character and the personification of honor. Ther funeral services were held yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock at the residence of Jacob P. Isley, Rev. Wm Wilmer officiating. The interment was in Keister Cemetery in Warren County. -Attica Ledger
