JONES, RUFUS PHILO - Putnam County, Ohio | RUFUS PHILO JONES - Ohio Gravestone Photos

Rufus Philo JONES

Harmon Cemetery
Putnam County,

born 27 Feb 1930 Gwinnett Co. GA died 29 Oct 1865 Gilboa, OH

son of Smith and Anna Butler Jones
husband of Loretta Hickerson

His grave stone says he died Oct, but a written history by his brother Oliver Smith Jones says he died in December. I would guess that Oliver lost the date for sure after several years. It is interesting to note Rufus's death resulted in his brothers naming children after him almost every brother that had a son name one for their deceased brother. The Civil War seems to have split this once close family. All of the brothers survived the war except one, but it seems that only two of them ever contacted each other again near the ends of their lives.
