Death has removed another grand old Hawkesbury native in the person of Mrs. Margaret Ann Jones, .relict of the late William Jones, of 'Livingstone,' Upper Colo, who died on Monday last at the age of 81 years. Her husband died on the 17th August, 1925, in his 84th year. The late Mrs. Jones' maiden name was Miss Margaret Ann Lamb, and she was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Lamb, pioneer residents of Lower Portland. The deceased was born at Cattai. She married William Jones, the fine old 'squire of Livingstone,' with its extensive citrus groves on the banks of the Colo River, in the year 1864. They were married in the Church of England, Sackville and three years later it was swept away by the memorable '67 flood. At 'Livingstone' they reared a large family of eight sons and three daughters, all of whom survive them. They are Messrs F. and A. A. Jones, of Narrabeen and Ashfield respectively; R. C. and C. M. Jones, of Sydney and Freeman's Reach, respectively; W. J., L. G., M. E., and V. V. Jones, of Colo, Mrs. A. Arnold, Mrs. J. Blundell, of Lower Portland, and Miss Pearl Jones, of 'Livingstone.' There was no more hospitable home than 'Livingstone' while the Old folk were alive, and the same may be said of the sons, most of whom have settled in the Hawkesbury district, and also of the daughters . The late Mrs Jones was greatly beloved by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance, and her death removes a link that binds us to the past. She was a woman of remarkable vitality and lived the life of a good Christian woman. In the early pioneering days she, with her husband, endured many hardships, but with their indomitable pluck and perseverence they won through and earned a competence for themselves in their old age. The remains were laid to rest beside those of her husband in the West Portland Church of England cemetery on Tuesday afternoon last. Rev. R. Rooke, of St. Albans, conducted service at the graveside and Mr. Chandler the service at the graveside and Mr. Chandler conducted the funeral.
