  • Notes 
    • November 24, 1887 ~ Hannah Jones, age 79, Married, born in New York, Daughter of Jacob Valentine, died in Pulaski of pneumonia and old age.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 1, 1887 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In Pulaski, November 24, 1887, Hannah, wife of Harlow Jones, aged 79 years.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday December 8, 1887 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - In Pulaski, Thursday, November 24th, at fifteen minutes to 4 p.m. of pneumonia, after an illness of only five days, in the presence of those who were dear to her, died, Hannah Valentine Jones, in the 79th year of her age. Hannah Valentine was born at Hudson, New York, December 17th, 1808, and was the daughter of Alexander and Sallie Valentine. Her father’s family consisted of three sons, Jacob, William and Noble, and four daughters, Abbie, Maria, Hannah and Betsy, all of whom are dead. When she was eleven years old, the family emigrated to this town and located on the bank of the creek, just south of her late residence. Being before the advent of railroads, the journey was made in an open wagon, drawn by horses, the children traveling most of the way on foot. Not suited with the first location, the family shortly afterwards removed to the place now owned by Hollister Wallace, where they lived till the father and mother died. On January 8th, 1827, she united in marriage with Pliny Harlow Jones, son of “Uncle Plinn” Jones, and shortly afterwards began housekeeping with him in a log house, several rods south-west of the brick structure now owned by their son Charles. There they continued for about six years, when they moved into the frame house across the road, which till recently has been occupied by their son. There by strict economy and no little hard work, they succeeded in paying for a large farm and collecting a moderate store. Their success was due to the methodical business habits of both, and particularly to the engineering of Mrs. Jones. Mrs. Jones was the mother of seven children, born in order named: Milton A., Mary, wife of J. S. Farmer, Lawrence N., deceased, Elbridge W., Charles H., Sarah, deceased, and Olive, wife of G. W. Dodge, all of whom, excepting Sarah, have lived to rear children of their own. Near the close of the war, the farm was sold to her soldier sons, Charles W. and Elbridge W., who worked it jointly, the father and mother, with their daughter Olive, moving into Pulaski where they occupied the residence now owned by F. Wood, on Jefferson Street. In the spring of 1865 they moved back onto the farm having re-bought it. In 1870 having again sold the farm to Charles, they moved into his father’s old homestead, which they have occupied since. In 1877 they celebrated their golden wedding, and for several years afterwards the entire family, with many friends have gathered together at Christmas, when the house has resounded with laughter and merriment. Grandma was always among the foremost, and her cheery smile and lively step gave pleasure to all. Mrs. Jones attended the M. E. Church, until quite recently and this together with her winning ways, secured for her an extraordinary number of friends. Although rather slender in form she was remarkably free from disease until within the last few years, in which time she has resisted two attacks of pneumonia, before succumbing to the third. Until the time of her death she was able to do her own housework. Old age had no terrors for her, and she never seemed to realize that she must die. The disease which caused her death was brought on by exposure in visiting one of her sons. Hannah Valentine Jones was a woman of character, a woman who was ready to help anyone in trouble and many a needy person has received help from her bountiful hand. Her loss will be keenly felt, not only by her children, but by the whole community in which she lived. She leaves an aged husband, five children, nineteen grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. The funeral took place on Sunday, November 27, at one o’clock p.m. Rev. D. D. Owen officiating.
