ALL BUSINESS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL THE LATE JOHN D. JONES. He Was a Brockway Pioneer and Had Passed His 69th Year. John D. Jonctf was horn in London, Ont., January 17th, 1825. of English parentage. Hi father had como to America in tho latter part of the last century anil settled at Savannah, (ia., hut later removed to Canada whero hi kou was born. In May, 1S'3$, they went to Dekalb county, 111., and in 18 l.'J John D. moved to Tort Huron, Michi gan, where he engaged in lumbering until about ISI.j when ho took up the labor of farmingin lirockway township and it was labor of the hardest kind, a all old settlers know, to bring the wilderness into a state of civilization and make a home for himself and fam ily. There were many hardships to endure but his perseverance and zeal were unf emitting and he was rewarded with a fair share of this world's goods. He joined his life with that of Martha Vamtenvurgh, of l'ort Huron, in 1S4, and from this union there wero seven children, only thre surviving him: Mary, wife of I. 11. Nicholson, of Hollo, 111., George II., of Shabbona, Mich., and Mattie, wife of J. 10. Vin cent, of Yale. The wife and mother died in October, S75,and in December, 1S7C, he was married to Hannah Stonc houe, who survives him. There were no children from this union. The sub ject of this sketch had received in his younger days a good common school education, and his shrewdness, honesty and fair dealing with those ho came in contact brought him the honor of several offices. Kor about twenty years he held the office of supervisor and in ISSy, the last term ho held he was elected without any opposition at all. While residing on "his place north west of Yale, called Merrillsyille then, lie opened up a mercantile store and was also postmaster there a great many years, until in faei he was elected rep resentative to the state legislature from the third district of St. Clair county in 1ST'.. He held the office of Justice of the reace for about ."0 years ami was school director for over ') years. His life has been one of activity. In lum bering, rafting, farming, mercantile business and the arduous labor of holding numerous offices his days have been passed. His was the credit of building the old road from lirockway to Merrillsville, and it was he who ran the first raft of logs from l'ort Huron to Toledo. Kven after his retirement from the active work of his farm and his removal to the village of lirockway Centre, now Yale, his life was a busy and a useful one, and after a very short illness he passes away at the age of (i'J years, a pioneer of this section, a man who has done a great deal of pub lic good and who will be missed and regretted by all.
