Obituary7 August 1917 "The Nhill Free Press", Nhill, VIC, Australia;
OBITUARY.
The death occurred in Geelong last week of Mr John Jones, aged 90 years and 7 months, one of our grand old pioneers. The late Mr Jones was born in Pennyboynt, Radnoshire, Wales, and came to Australia with his parents in 1840, when they landed at Adelaide. The S.A. capital at that time was only a little town, and deceased recollected when gum trees grew in the streets and the natives were camped on places now occupied by the city's chief commercial establishments. He was married at McLaren Vale, but migrated to the Diapur district with his wife and family when the land was first thrown open to selectors. However, in 1912 he came to reside in Nhill, and twelve months ago removed to Geelong. At one period the late Mr Jones acted as Clerk of Courts in Adelaide, and was also a shire councillor for 15 years. Deceased's father fought with the British under Wellington in the battle of Waterloo in 1815, when he won several medals for bravery and good conduct. Four of his sons are at present fighting at the front, one being Major-General G. A. Jones who fought in the South African campaign. Deep sympathy is felt for the bereaved children, viz.—Mr Hurtle Jones (Rainbow), Sergeant R. Jones, N.S.W. police Sydney; Major-General G. A. Jones (on actng service), Privates R. V., and J. A. Jones (on active service), Mrs J. Sanders (Bayswater), Mrs J. Kanaley (N.S.W.), and Mrs G. Allitt (Miram).24
