Amy Kay Anna Jones
Memory of Amy Kay Anna Jones:
by grandson Charles Clifford Clear Sr.

Towards the end of her life, Amy Clear was living with her daughter Arwilda Truitt. Her son William Henry went and got her and took her to his home to live and that he and Aunt Will Truitt didn't speak to each other for years. That could be why her name and Aunt Cal Welsh's name was not mentioned in the obituary.[Charles was 13 when his Grandmother died, and remembered her well]


An aged citizen dies at the home of her son in Washington Township, aged 91 years. (Near Grover Hill, Ohio.) Mrs. Annie Clear, wife of David Clear - deceased - and Mother of Joseph and Henry Clear of Washington Township died on Wednesday of last week at the home of her son Henry, at the ripe old age of 91 years. Mrs. Clear was one of the early settlers of Latty Township,this county, coming here with her husband from Preble County, Ohio, nearly forty years ago and was for many years one of the useful and prominent women of the southeastern part of the county. Annie Jones was born in Stillsville, Tennessee, February 16, 1815. When yet young, the family moved to the state of Indiana and in 1838 she was united in marriage of David Clear of Eaton, Ohio. And, in 1867 they became pioneers of this County. (Paulding County, Ohio.) In 1883 her husband passed to that great beyond, and on the 30th day of May 1906, God called her to join her husband and eight children who have passed on before. Four children, twenty-three grandchildren and thirty-six great grand children are left to mourn, but they rejoice to know that she died in the triumph of a living faith. The services over the remains were conducted by the Reverend J. M. Slane and laid to rest in Middle Creek Cemetery. We Thank the friends and neighbors for the kindness they manifested during the sickness and death of our Mother.
