Joseph Mayrank Jones (Tombstone Tuesday)


Sacred to the memory of
JOSEPH  MAYRANK  JONES
son of Joseph Jones
of Liberty county, Georgia
who died on the 5th January 1831
near Louisville
on his way home
from the Legislature
in which body
he represented his native
county three years,
aged 26 years & 8 months.

This tribute
to departed worth as dedicated
by paternal affection
to one who by his amiable deportment
and many virtues
justly merited the warm affection
of his
numerous relatives and friends.

Farewell dear youth, a long & fond adieu
A father's tears, thy early tomb bedew.
