  Married - In this village, July 3d, by the Rev. Mr. Goodwin, Mr. Hiram Kenyon, of Penn Yan, to Miss Sarah Ann Northrop, of Potter.

Tuesday, May 15, 1849

     Departed this life very suddenly on Saturday last Joseph Jones, in the seventy-sixth year of his age. He had been out in Wayne county, engaged in surveying and had proceeded as far as Geneva in his return home. He was in good spirits and apparently in the enjoyment of his first rate hotel and had so expressed himself but a moment before. He had got into the stage at the Franklin House in the company with three other passengers, and rode up to the Geneva Hotel, where the stage halted for more passengers for Penn Yan. While waiting here, the deceased fell back in his seat, and expired almost instantly, without a struggle or groan. Mr. J. came to Penn Yan to reside about forty years ago, and during the whole of that time his deportment has been such that he won the respect and esteem of all who knew him. He had not a single enemy within the whole circle of his acquaintance. A man never lived that was more universally esteemed than was “Friend Jones”. He was a man of the strictest integrity, and of the most unswerving correct deportment. Although he has lived beyond the years that is commonly allotted to man, yet there is not one that could be taken from our midst that would be missed by this community as much as Joseph Jones will be.
