On the evening before his death, Jones left Jackson in company with Wm. Combs and Shade Combs. The latter stated that the party stopped when night overtook them and built a fire, with the intention of waiting by it until the moon arose and gave them light by which they would be enabled to resume their journey. They declared that when the moon arose they were unable to arouse Jones, who was asleep by the fire, and that they went on their journey, leaving him there.
