But about four months ago there occurred a decided change for the worse and for the most part since that time she had been confined to the bed. The end came, as had been anticipated, with little warning and very quietly and peacefully. Anna Gertrude Jewell was the daughter of the late Ezra S. and Araminta Davison Jewell. She was born in Troy February 23, 1858. She had one brother, Samuel H Jewell, of Canton, Pa. who is the only survivor of the family, her father and mother having died about six years ago.

JONES John Jones Jr.
Native and lifelong resident of Wells Township, Bradford County, died at home on March 17, 2012 at age 88 years, 6 months, and 15 days. His death was unexpected and in his sleep, having been in good health, driving the day prior, and having only in the last few months turned over the operation of a business to his grandson. Devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather, John was born Sept. 2, 1923 on present Farm View Road in Wells Township, a dirt road where his parents resided on a leased farm owned by Hendrick Brewer and Roxy Oldroyd, situated a short distance west and at the bottom of the knoll at Kent's Corners, now the intersection of Farm View Road and Updike Road. John was the eighth of nine children born to John Jones and Alice Mae Orton, natives of Fall Brook and Morris Run, Tioga County, Pa. In March 1927 his parents removed to a home and farm in the Seeley Creek Valley of Wells Township, north of Mosherville, near the New York and Pennsylvania state line where they continued to reside the remainder of their lives. John was raised on the family farm and learned at an early age the importance of hard work. His family still farmed with horses before converting to tractors and at a young age he was required to get the horses harnessed and ready for field work. The day he turned 6 years old he began his education in a white one-story two-room wooden school with a bell tower on the roof in the hamlet of Mosherville, where the present elementary school is located. The children got their drinking water from a well of a nearby house and carried the bucket to the schoolhouse. He attended the same school through the eighth grade and then attended a brick school in the hamlet of Millerton from the ninth through twelth grade from which he graduated in 1941. He was the last surviving male member of his graduating class. A man of many talents, who could have pursued various careers, as the youngest in the family and with brothers off to war, he remained on the farm assisting his parents. Active in sports, he was third baseman for a Mosherville baseball team and outfielder for the Elmira Blackhawks. It was after one of these baseball games and having dropped off his future bride while he was on his way home that he was involved in a two-car collision on a one lane bridge on the Coryland Road, near Roaring Run Road, two and a half miles south of Mosherville on July 20, 1946. Hospitalized with several serious injuries and a broken and crushed ankle and foot he persevered and went on to walk. John married Dec. 12, 1948 the love of his life, Marilyn Laurene Noble, also of Wells Township. They celebrated 63 years, 3 months, and 5 days of happily married life together. They began married life living with his parents on their farm in the Seeley Creek Valley of Wells Township, residing with them for three years before moving to a two-family home on the adjoining farm owned by his brother Roy and in which his brother Raymond and wife Julia also resided. In 1956, John and Marilyn, with their own hands and hard work, began the construction of a home on the farm of his parents where they have since resided. They took over the farm of his parents, operating a successful dairy operation with Jersey cattle. He was proud of the fact he had the highest testing herd that the milk plant and Cornell University had encountered at the time. In 1969 they built and opened a car wash, situated on the family farm, on Route 328. They retired from dairy farming in 1982. A quiet unassuming man, he was proud of his family and always encouraged them to do better. One of his often spoken comments to his sons was "there is no such word as 'I can't'" as he assumed there was always a way to get a project accomplished. His hard work and sacrifices made it possible for his family to have a fortunate life. Always with a devoted and bright outlook on life, John and Marilyn lived a busy life involved with their family. John had a strong and compassionate heart and appreciation for life as evidenced by the love for his family, friends and community. John was the last member of his family and was predeceased by his father at age 83; his mother at age 88; brothers and sisters David Jones at age 93, Emma Jones Nash at age 85, Cenis Jones at age 89, Charles Jones at age 90, Catherine Jones Genaway at age 89, Raymond Jones at age 88, Roy Jones at age 76, and Willard Jones at age 6 months of spinal meningitis; and twin grandsons Joel Kurt Jones in 1974 and Jon Christopher Jones in 1991. He is survived by his wife; two sons, John Keavin Jones and wife Susan Marie White of Wells Township; Jan Kelsey Jones of Pine City, New York, friend Thomas Slike; grandson Kory Jayson Jones and Kristen Zepp of Wells Township. Arrangements by Caywood's Funeral Home and Gardens, Elmira. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no calling hours and services will be private and at the convenience of the immediate family. Burial will be in Glenwood Cemetery, Troy, Pennsylvania near the grandsons who predeceased him. In lieu of flowers, his desire was that those wishing make donations to the Bradford County Historical Society, 109 Pine Street, Towanda, PA 18848 or the Millerton Fire Department, 16 North Road, Millerton, PA 16936.
