Salina Jane Jones
Salina Jane Jones, nee Antrim, was born in Adams County, Ohio, December 5, 1829, and died near Fennimore, Grant County, Wisconsin, June 1, 1893; aged 64 years, 9 months and 25 days. When Mrs. Jones was but 11 years of age, her parents moved to Iowa, and also lived for a short time in Illinois; from there she came with her husband to settle in Grant County, Wis. From here they moved to Nebraska, where Mr. Jones died, when Mrs. Jones again moved to Grant Co., and made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Sarah Frankenhoff, until death called her away. Her death came quickly and unexpectedly. She enjoyed good health during the day, and went to bed, not feeling at all that her end was so near, and about 11 p.m. she got up and came to the door where her daughter was sleeping and woke her. She went back to bed, and lived only a short time. For some time Mrs. Jones had trouble with her heart, which was also the cause of her death. Her husband and one child have crossed before her the river of death. Seven children remain to mourn the loss of a loving mother; Mrs. B. W. Frankenhoff, Mrs. A. C. Wood in Nebraska, William and Wilson [twins], in Iowa, John Wesley, Charles Sumner, in Nebraska and Mrs. Perry Munns. Mrs. Jones was highly esteemed by all who knew her, which was also demonstrated at her funeral, which took place Sunday June 4, at 10 o'clock a.m. in the newly erected church near her home, of which she was a member. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. F. W. Shoenfeld. Text. - Phillippians 1:21.
