Samuel W. Jones

This aged resident of Holmdel died on Friday last in his 81st year. He was a native of Burlington county, but for the past fifty years or morehe had lived at Holmdel, where he owned and farmed the old J. H. VanMater farm at that place. He was an upright, conscientious citizen, whose record was as good as his bond, and whose many qualities had gained for him a large circle of friends. His funeral was held yesterday at the Holmdel Reformed church, and the many friends who assembled to pay the last respects to the dead made the gathering one of the largest funerals ever held in that vicinity. The funeral was conducted by the Revs. Mr. Hagerman and W. W. Case, of Holmdel, and Elias Mead, of Keyport. Mr. Jones leaves a widow and nine children, seven sons and two daughters.

Death notice in same issue lists his age as 80 years, 8 months and 15 days.
