Lucy Ann Robinson was born October 9th, 1803 in Middlesex County, Virginia. She was married to Richard Cary Jones in 1822, and came west in 1838. She came to Williamsport, Ind., 21 years ago-in 1878. She was an earnest believer in God's word. The promises of God are beautiful. They are all fulfilled. There are now and then lives in which the whole pathway reveals the delight of trusting the faithfulness of God. These lives do not always stand in the open ways. Sometimes they are found where but few of the privileges of the wide, wide world come. Yet how delightful to meet them. How they cheer the heart. How bright they make the way of those who come within the circle of their thoughts. It is a blessed thing to see the presence of a loving Savior always near; to hear his words of truth, and rest in them. He has rest for the heart and peace for the soul. His promise to find a pathway for the feet is eternal truth to all who will receive it. The one in whose memory these words are written seemed to see the presence of her God very near, and the consciousness was a blessed rest to her heart-and how her words cheered others as they spoke of the goodness of the One who made all things beautiful to her thought. Mrs. Jones always saw the good things of her Father's care. The ills were there. No one passes where they are not. She could say of God's ways: "Thou has made everything beautiful in it's day." And her heart lovingly beheld the hand that presented the beauty. But her hopes reached beyond the things seen. The heavenly home was not far away. The earthly way was long but soon passed. Her faith of things to come was clear, beautiful. Mordicai Rayle, aged 72 years, died at his home in Warren Township a few days ago. He was one of the early settlers of the county. Remains were interred in the Davis Cemetery. Nate Mourer, a former resident of this county near West Lebanon, was attacked by the grip and after a brief illness died at his son's living near Attica last Friday. Rev. Wm Wilmer officiated at the funeral and interment was made in the cemetery at West Lebanon Saturday forenoon. Charles Leland, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Banes, died at their home at the Revere house, Tuesday, January 17th, after an illness of ten days. He was aged nine months and five days. The funeral occurred Wednesday at 2 p.m., from the house, Rev. B. F. Ivey officiating. Interment was at the East Cemetery The heart broken parents have the tenderest sympathy of all in this sad hour of their bereavement.
