Jones, Mary (Rodney) 1846-1934 Garrattsville Obituary

Jones, Mary (Rodney) 1846-1934 Garrattsville Obituary

Mrs. Mary R. Jones, 88,
Dies at Garrattsville

New Lisbon, May 22---Mrs. Mary R. Jones, 88, widow of Michael C. Jones, died early this morning at the Home of Donald Bennington, near Garrattsville.
Mary H. Rodney was born in the town of Pittsfield April 11, 1846. Her parents were William and Isabel (McCoy) Rodney. Seventy-two years ago she married Mr. Jones. Nearly their entire married life was spent in the village of Garrattsville, where Mr. Jones died 15 years ago.
She was a member of the Presbyterian church. Her only near surviving relatives are a nephew, William H. Rodney of West Winfield, and a niece, Mrs. Lillian Rooney of South New Berlin.
The funeral will be held in the Presbyterian church Thursday afternoon at 1 o'clock. Rev. Joseph Muglin, pastor of the church, will officiate.

The place of interment is unreadable.

On the 1880 Census,
Michael was 40
Mary was 34
William Radley, 6, was listed as a boarder, so I assume they took in
a child and were caring for him.

I was unable to locate them on any other census reports.
