    "JOHN B. WELLS
    John Breed Wells, the youngest of five children-four sons and one daughter of Henry and Sophia (Breed) Wells, was born in Colchester, Conn., August 24, 1816. His father was born in 1770 and died in 1845. His mother's death occurred in 1852. About 1820 the family moved to Stockbridge, Berkshire county, Mass., where the boyhood of the subject of this memoir was passed on a farm and in attending the district school. His early advantages were necessarily limited, yet in the alternating routine of farm work in summer and of study during the winter months he acquired not only an enduring physique, but the rudiments of a practical education, both of which in a measure fitted him for the subsequent duties of an active business life. He inherited those thrifty characteristics of native New Englanders and became imbued with an enterprising spirit, and while yet a mere youth decided upon a commercial career. At the age of fourteen he was apprenticed to the firm of Owen & Hurlburt, extensive paper manufacturers of South Lee, Mass., and entering the general supply store of this firm remained with them for seven years. Here he received a valuable business training and imbibed those principles which invariably characterize the successful man. On reaching his majority he purchased of his employers the stock of goods contained in this store and profitably conducted the business for one year. But his enterprising spirit and excellent judgment led him into larger fields of activity, which he was eminently fitted by nature and experience to fill.

    In 1839 Mr. Wells made a trip to the Western Reserve, a portion of the State of Ohio, where his father and older brothers had settled on a large tract of land. Not finding an opening in the mercantile line in that frontier region he returned to Utica, where his cousins. A. L. & R. H. Wells, were engaged in the dry goods business at No. 76 Genesee street. Mr. Wells entered their employ and remained for two years. In 1841 he formed a copartnership with Lewis Bailey of Utica, under the firm name of Bailey & Wells, and carried on a successful dry goods trade for five years, the first two in Auburn, N. Y., and the remainder in Utica, where Mr. Wells permanently settled in 1843. In Utica their store was located at 88 Genesee street. In 1846, the partnership having expired, Mr. Wells started in business on his own account at the same location, and in 1856 moved to the store No. 56 Genesee street, in the Marble block, then newly built. In 1865 he removed to 79 Genesee street, where the original store was in 18'71 extended back to Franklin street to accommodate his constantly increasing trade. In 1879 what was known as the "Boston Store" adjoining on the north and in 1886 the old Buckley & Co. stores on the south became vacant, and Mr. Wells promptly extended his business and occupied both establishments, taking Nos. 77, 79, and 81 Genesee street and Nos. 11, 13, and 15 Catharine street. In these commodious quarters the business has since been conducted, and for many years it has enjoyed a foremost place among the largest dry goods concerns in Central New York. In 1865 John S. Capron became a partner under the firm name of J. B. Wells & Co. and in 1873 Edward L. Wells, the only surviving son of Mr. Wells, was admitted, the firm being since known as J. B. Wells, Son & Co. On May 9, 1893, the firm sustained a serious loss from fire, the interior of the store being almost completely burned out. The loss aggregated nearly $150,000, but the firm quickly recovered and soon opened another stock more valuable than the one destroyed.

    Mr. Wells's business experience covered a period of more than half a century, fifty years being spent in Utica. He was a man of unswerving integrity, honorable, upright, and conscientious, and never was a breath of suspicion aimed against him. He bore throughout life an untarnished reputation and a name that was universally ; respected. His unceasing kindness to his employees, his warm friendship and active interest in their welfare and advancement, his noble and self-sacrificing example, and his treasured advice and words of encouragement are enduring monuments to his devotion, fidelity to principle, and correct judgment. He was emphatically a self-made man, his education beyond that afforded by the small district school being self-acquired. He attended this common school only four months of each year during four or five winters, yet by persistent reading and study during such leisure moments as he occasionally obtained from the hours of labor he stored his retentive mind with valuable information, and this together with critically observing people and events enabled him to successfully cope with men whose early educational advantages greatly exceeded his own. He owed his success to his individual efforts. Endowed with marvelous energy, with an almost unlimited capacity for work, with excellent judgment and sound common sense, and with a nature which was both broad and companionable, he won the utmost esteem and confidence, and displayed in his daily rounds a comprehensive grasp of detail and thoroughness of purpose which distinguished him in all the affairs of life. He was a firm friend, a safe counselor, and a generous employer. In his business dealings he was always honest, honorable, and just, and the confidence and respect that were accorded him are glowing tributes to his exemplary career.

    Mr. Wells did not confine his time and talents solely to the dry goods business, but devoted a large share of his attention and means to the benefit of his fellow citizens, He was prominently interested in several large corporations, either as an officer or as a stockholder, and brought to these the same clear judgment, energy, and ability that characterized the conduct of his personal affairs, He was one of the founders and incorporators and the largest stockholder of the Skenandoa Cotton Company in 1882, and served as its vice-president until 1886, when, on the death of A. J. Williams, he was elected president. This enterprise was started with a capital of $200,000 and with a mill two stories high, 275 by 100 feet, erected for the purpose. The equipment consisted of about 10,000 spindles and other necessary machinery for the manufacture of fine hosiery yarns for the use of manufacturers of knit goods. So successful did the venture prove that in 1888 the capital stock was increased to $300,000 and another two story mill, equal in size to the first, erected. In 1892 the capital was again increased to $600,000 and a third mill, three stories high, 350 by 100, added, thus giving the company a plant of nearly 55,000 spindles and a productive capacity five times as large as the original. The company has paid regular dividends, and besides expending more than three-quarters of a million dollars on its plant has accumulated a handsome surplus, and its stock commands a high premium. The success and permanent usefulness of this enterprise are in a large measure due to the sagacity and business ability of Mr. Wells, who not only gave his best efforts to its development, but invested heavily of his means at a time, when its future was anything but promising. He stood by it when others were timid and boldly advocated a progressive policy, and by his courage and persistence demonstrated the soundness of his principles, which he insisted should be applied to the conduct of the business of the company. As president he ably guided its affairs from 1886 until his death, when the concern had secured an enormous business and a very strong financial condition. He was also a stockholder in the Mohawk Valley Cotton Mills, the Utica Willowvale Bleaching Company, and the Utica Steam Cotton Mills. For ten years he was a director in the First National Bank. In the progress and development of these important institutions he labored with a zeal that was both marvelous and inspiring.

    But it was as a public benefactor, as a citizen who was intensely and unselfishly interested in the welfare of the community, that Mr. Wells won a warm place in the hearts and affections of not only his associates, but of all who knew him. He was intimately identified with various charitable and religious organizations of Utica, and gave to these self -sacrificing devotion and substantial support. He was a member of the First Presbyterian church from the time of his settlement in Utica in 1843 until his death, and served it as an elder for thirty years and as a deacon for ten years. He was a liberal contributor to the Young Men's Christian Association, and from 1887 until his decease served as president of its board of trustees. In the construction of the handsome Y. M. C. A. building on the corner of Bleecker and Charlotte streets he was particularly interested, his gifts to it surpassing those of any other citizen. He gave liberally to his own and to other churches, to missionary and educational enterprises, and for many years maintained a missionary in western fields. In all movements for improvement or reform, in benevolent and charitable work both in the city and elsewhere, he was especially generous. He contributed freely to asylums and hospitals, and from 1887 until his death officiated as treasurer of the Home for the Homeless.

    The corner-stone of his prosperity was industry, watchfulness, and honesty. His uncompromising integrity, prudence, sagacity, and tact won for him a brilliant record in all the affairs of life. He was public spirited, progressive, and conscientious, and above all a true gentleman. He died in Utica November 27, 1891, and from friends and business associates from all parts of the country came tender, touching letters of condolence, letters which spoke volumes for the exalted esteem and reverence in which the memory of Mr. Wells was held. The several institutions with which he had been connected also passed appropriate resolutions, expressing in glowing terms the appreciation of his personal qualities and business ability. During the hour of his funeral many of the business houses of the city were closed. The obsequies were conducted by Rev. R. L. Bachman, D. D., who said: "He was not a man of many words, but of many and good deeds."

    Mr. Wells was married in Lyme, Conn., on October 18, 1841, to Miss Roxanna Hill Lee, daughter of a Presbyterian clergyman who preached for many years in the church on Grassy Hill in the town of Lyme, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Oliver Brown. She was born in Lyme, April 12, 1818, and died in Utica January 10, 18'79. Their children were Mary Louise, John H. (who died in Utica November 17, 1865, aged eighteen), Helen E., Edward L., and Anna S. Helen Elizabeth, the second daughter, was born June 21, 1850, was married at Utica on April 5, Dr. Eugene Grove Carpenter, of Cleveland, Ohio, and moving with her husband to the latter city died there on August 25th of the same year. She had been for many years a member of the First Presbyterian church of Utica and a teacher in its Sunday school; she had also been a teacher in the Utica Orphan Asylum Sunday school and for a time a member of the board of managers o£ the Home for Aged Men and Couples. Edward L. Wells was born in Utica March 1, 1852, was graduated from the Utica Free Academy in 1870, and in September of that year entered his father's dry goods establishment, with which he has ever since been connected. He is a director in the First National Bank, the Skenandoa Cotton Company, the Standard Harrow Company, The Roberts Wicks Company, and Utica Mechanics Association, and is president of the Olympian Knit Goods Company, all of Utica, and the Yonkers North End Land Company, of New York.
