Mrs. Martha Lough was born in Pendleton County, W. Va., January 1810, and died at her daughter's, Miss Jennie Lough, in West Lebanon, Sunday, May 14th, 1899, at 5:35 p.m., in the 90th year of her life. Deceased was the wife of the late Reuben Lough, who died several years ago. She was the mother of nine children, five sons and fours daughters, seven of whom survive her, a son and daughter dying several years ago. Mrs. Lough had been sick ever since the Foster wedding supper when so many ate of the chicken salad. She united with the Methodist Church in West Lebanon during the pastorate of Rev. Mr. Mock. The funeral services were held at the residence last Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. Mr. Dunkleberger, her pastor, preaching the discourse, and remains were interred in the West Lebaon Cemetery. She was an aunt of Mr. obadiah Rains of that place. James Jones, an old resident of southwest Hodgman county, died Wednesday, April 12, 1899, aged 81 years, 10 months and 25 days, from pneumonia. The deceased had been ill but a short time. The funeral was held at the family home Thursday at 10 o'clock a.m., services being conducted by Rev. John Morrison in accordance with the expressed wish of the departed. His remains were interred in the Cimarron Cemetery. Rev. Morrison took for his text: "Thou changest his countenance and sendest him away." He believed in the immortality of the soul and a home without a shadow. He had been a church member and a servant of the Lord for 56 years. What the seven arches and colors are to a rainbow, and what ripeness is to a peach, is what Christianity was to Bro. Jones. While we read this he sits in the home of the good, while through the branches of the palm tree sifts the golden sunlight of the eternal June. The deceased was born May 23, 1817 in Hamilton County, Ohio. He was married in 1838, and as a result of this union thirteen children were born. His faithful wife and four children, two sons and two daughters, survive him. He came to Kansas in the early seventies, and has lived on the place where he died for twenty years or more. He frequently visited Cimarron and was well known to everybody. His death has caused many heads to bow in sadness-in humble submission to the will of Him "who doeth all things well." "Grandpa Jones" will long live in the memory of his friends. -Cimarron, Kansas., Jacksonian Deceased was the eldest of a family of eight children, Mrs. Sarah Allen, wife of P. W. Allen, being the youngest. He was the father of Mrs. E. E. Bowlus of Pierceville, Kan. He was a brick mason by trade and built several private and public buildings during his long residence here back in the 70's and preceding years. He built the brick Methodist Church in 1863 in this place, and also the brick residence of A. C. Durborow, now the Orphans' Home. He was the grandfather of the late Minnie Jones who died about a year ago at the home of Mr. D. K. Butt, in this place. His brothers were Abram, Isaac, William and Dr. Joesph Jones. All are living.
