We learn, with sincere regret, that Mr. Joseph H. Jones, a highly respectable merchant, of St. Louis, Missouri, shot himself yesterday morning in his chamber at Hieskeil’s Hotel in Philadelphia and expired shortly after. Mr. Jones was a native of England; and settled at St. Louis about a year ago. He had come to this city, and went to New York about a month since. He returned about the beginning of last week. His friends, we understand are unable to assign any probably cause for the lamentable act which terminated his life. – Phil. Chronicle.
Republican Compiler, Gettysburg, PA, February 24, 1829


JONES – Lewis R, son of Ellis & Phrania Jones, was born in Baltimore co, Md, 9 Feb 1798, and died in Pettis co, Mo, 13 Aug 1877, in his 80th year. He came to Mo in 1855. In early life he came with his father’s family to Brooke co, W Va, and settled on the farm which was selected by Bishop Campbell as the site, and where now stands Bethany College. In 1820 he was married to Miss Eliza Gist, with whom he lived some time over a year, when death separated them. Again in 1826 he was married to Miss Nancy Crawford, who preceded him a few years to the spirit land. He was a zealous member of the Methodist Church … He was the last, but one, of a large family. He leaves four sons and four daus. – Mary C McCary (Pittsburg Xian Advocate please copy)
