Corporal Maurice Jones, a former member of Co. L. of Redwood Falls, died Thursday morning, October 24, at Camp Cody, New Mexico.
Corporal Jones was born Mar. 8, 1892, and at the time of his death was 26 years old. Most of his life was spent on the reservation and he was well liked by all who knew him. He served two years on the Texas border during the Mexican trouble and was then advanced to the rank of corporal. He went to Camp Cody with Company L but was unable to go with them overseas on account of ill health.
He is survived by a mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. James Jones, and three brothers, Joshua, Howard and Elroy, all of this place.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon in St. Cornelia’s Church.

Editor’s Note: RCHS does not have Maurice Jones’ photograph. Maurice went off with the May 25, 1918 quota.
