Jones, wife of a Pueblo merchant, who was assaulted with a hatchet by Edward Mackelfee, an insane negro who escaped from the state asylum here on April 27, died during the night at the Pueblo hospital the result of her injuries.  Her death was unexpected.  Two days ago she sat out in the open air, and her husband had planned to take her to Puget Sound in a few days to recuperate.  At her bedside were her husband, E. A. Jones, and her two children, Archibald, aged 11, and Elizabeth, aged 9.  Mrs. Jones was on her way down town when Mackelfee ran up behind her and sank a hatchet in her skull in three places.  Two of the cuts penetrated the skull and two pieces of bones each as large as a silver dollar was taken out by the surgeons. [Editor's Note: This contains more information about her injury and death.  They did have the initials in her husband's name two different ways within the article.  I left them as is.]
