The funeral services will be held on Sunday, at 11 o'clock, in the Second ward assembly rooms. All friends are invited to attend. Utah; The Daily Engquirer Newspapger, Tuesday, March 25, 1890 V. 14 no. 25 Page 2. 1890 Provo, Utah The Last Sad Rites Brother Thomas W Jones was Laid to Rest Yesterday The funeral services over the remains of Brother Thomas W Jones were held at the Meeting house on Sunday. Services were commenced at 12 m. o'clock. Singing by the choir. Pray was offered by Elder Abraham Halladay. The choir sang: Unveil the bosom, faithful tomb, Take this new treasure to thy trust, Brother James Hardy read a biographical sketch of the life of the deceased. Brother Jones was born at Sheepshead, Lestershire, England, April 11, 1836. He would, therefore, be 54 years, 11 months and 9 days old at the time of his death. BRO. RICHARDS, of Pleasant Grove, the former president of the branch in England, where Brother Jones had lived paid a high tribute to the moral character of the deceased. He asked that God might strengthen the bereaved family that they might bear up under their affliction. We are altogether different from the world on this principle. We feel that when a brother or a sister departs in the full faith of the gospel there is nothing to mourn over except a mere temporary separation. They go to enter into the glory of God. ELDER JAMES D DANIELS felt it a privilege to say a few words on this occasion inasmuch as he had been intimately acquainted with Brother Jones ever since he had been in Provo. There will be a vacancy both as regards Brother Jones' ability as a singer and as a brother and a friend. He has said while he was sick that he felt that he was going to join the choir on the other side. Many of our choir have gone behind the veil and Brother Jones will be greeted by them. Brother Jones has been faithful into the end and may God grant that we may also be faithful that we may in time go and meet him. Before his death Brother Jones selected the hymns that he desired should be sung on this occasion. We have sung two of them and will sing at the close of the services the other. Brother Daniel's concluded his remarks by reading over Hymn 130 on page 143 of the Hymn Book. ELDER REED SMOOT felt that there need be but little regret expressed on this occasion. Brother Jones was fully prepared to go. He felt that this was his last sickness and he has so expressed himself. His usefulness in the church of God has been referred to by the previous speakers and I can testify that he was a good workman and a good friend. May God comfort Sister Jones and the sons and daughters and relatives of the deceased. Among his last words Brother Jones said to his wife, "Do not weep for me, I am all right and God will take care to you." President David John referred to the time when Brother Jones had first come to Provo and to his employment in the Provo Woolen Mills. I first met Brother Jones at a small town about four miles from Nottingham. We induced him to move to Nottingham as he was a good singer and could assist us very much. Brother Jones was ordained a high priest a week ago yesterday. He was not able to attend the meeting but some of the brethren went down to his house and ordained him. Brother Jones testimony in the gospel was renewed a few days before his death. It is very comforting to know, that Brother Jones should be thus favored by Heaven. May God comfort those who morn and may we all live to that we can meet Brother Jones. PRESIDENT SMOOT had been somewhat acquainted with Brother Jones since he Had come to Provo. He had seen may virtues but he had sen not faults. This should be comforting to know. We should not mourn except for those for whom there is no hope in the future. It will be well if it can be said of us as it is truthfully said of Brother Jones today, he is ready. I would say to the family be comforted and do as Brother Jones has done that you may meet him. BISHOP EVAN WRIDE testified to the truth of the remarks made by the previous speaker. Brother Jones has lived in the Second ward and he has always been ready to perform whatever duties he might be called upon to perform. He had great faith but it seems that he had no faith that he would recover from this his last sickness. My hope is that his family will following his footsteps, that they may be prepared to meet him when they are called to pass behind the veil. The choir sang: O, my Father, thou that dwellest In the high and glori[o]us place. Benediction was pronounced by Elder Simon P Eggertson, Jr. Utah; The Daily Enquirer Newspaper Tuesday, March 25, 1890 v. 14 no. 25 Page 4. ================================= Father Thomas Jones 1797- Mother Elizabeth Hallan 1815
