Obit for Benjamin Franklin Jones

I have an obituary for the subject Benjamin Franklin Jones b 14 Jul 1827 Royalton, Pickaway, Ohio d 22 Mar 1898. He dies at the residence of his son Samuel "at this place". I believe his son was Samuel Clinton Jones who lived with his wife Emma (Dardinger) Jones at 650 Hamlet St., Columbus 17 Ohio according to the 1900 census. The funeral was on the 24nd of march and the obit published, I assume, shortly afterward. Does anyone have access to Columbus papers of that age who could see if it was published in Columbus? Samuel came from Fostoria, Hancock, Ohio but he was married to Emma in 1880 and had two children shortly thereafter. He and Emma lived in Columbus at least from 1900 to 1930 judging from the censuses. Since the obit only mentions "at this place" several times, I'd like confirmation it was in Columbus.
