Lebanon News
Obituary of William Jones

November 12, 1909

Confederate Answers Call.

William Jones Dies Rather Suddenly.

"William Jones is Dead" is the news that reached Lebanon early Wednesday morning, causing expressions of regret throughout the town.

His death was very unexpected even to members of his family, his health having been good up to Monday afternoon when he was taken sick, death following in a few hours.

Mr. Jones resided east of Barnett and was between 65 and 70 years of age. He was a confederate soldier and was in some hard fought battles, being a member of the 29th Virginia Regiment.

His record for citizenship was that of an exceptionally good man, always liberal with his means in aiding in charity work.

One by one the old confederate soldier is joining the ranks of comrades who fell in battle.
