Your name is still spoken and you are not forgotten. Just today my niece, Heather, and I were talking about you. My Grandmother, Marion (Jones) Marsh, mentioned you, her brother, many times over the years. Since I was a child my mother, Marguerite (Christian) Perkins, would speak of her "Uncle Seldon" and his tragic death at a young age. She was about 8 years old at the time, just old enough to remember a few things about you. I have visited your grave countless times. I wish I had been able to learn more about you. Blessings to you in Heaven.

Debra A. Perkins, Grand Niece of Officer Seldon Jones.
(Seldon, brother of my grandmother & uncle of my mother.)
