It was learned in Wakefield the first of the week that Mrs. R. A. Jones, for several years a resident of Wakefield, died at her home in New Orleans, La., on March 24. The death came as a double tragedy to the daughter of Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Victor H. Johns. Two days previous to her mother's death, Mrs. Johns' husband died at their home in Illinois. He was for many years a conductor on the Illinois Central Railroad. It is understood that it was Mrs. Jones' wish that her last resting place be at Wakefield, but on account of her husband's death Mrs. Johns was not able to carry out her mother's wishes. Mrs. Jones was a member of the K. and L. of S. of this place. (Wakefield News, April 9, 1914)
