Their Little Girl Dead
On Friday last and after an illness lasting three weeks and of typhoid fever complicated by cerebro meningitis, occurred the death of Ameilia, aged 11 years, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Jones of this city. The funeral was held from the M.E. church on Monday afternoon and the burial made in the East Side Cemetery. Mille was a bright little girl and was the especial object of the solicitude and love of her parents because of the misfortune of the loss of a foot which o’ertook her when a little child some four or five years ago by being run down with a mowing machine and a foot so injured that amputation was necessary to save her life. To the parents and their two little boys sympathy from many friends is extended in the bereavement placed upon them. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, May 17, 1905)


Amelia L. Jones, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Jones, died Friday afternoon of typhoid fever. She was ten years of age at the time of her death. Funeral services were held in the Methodist church Monday afternoon and the remains interred in the East Side Cemetery. About five years ago her right foot was taken off in a mowing machine by a party in the employ of the city. She was playing in the tall weeds in the street when the accident occurred. At that time the city deposited $500 in the Estherville State Bank to be turned over to her when she became of age. This with the interest, will amount to something like $700, which the parents will receive. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, May 17, 1905)
