    Joseph Wells, an old and respected resident of Melrose Township, passed from this life Saturday, December 13, aged 83 years, 10 months, 12 days. Born February 1, 1830, near the village of Melrose, his early life spent in his childhood home. After his marriage, he lived in the home south of Melrose.

    On August 26, 1852, he was married to Louisa Howerton. To this union was born a son John D. and a daughter Margaret L.Rook, both of whom, with the bereaved wife and mother, survive him. The deceased also leaves a brother, J.M. Wells and a sister, Mrs. Margaret Cowden, there having been three brothers and five sisters who preceded him in death. There are more distant relatives who grieve over his loss.
    The deceased has been a prominent figure in the community in which he has always lived. His parents, Nathan and Susan Wells, were pioneers, coming into the wilds of the new country, clearing and subduing the fallow but fertile land and rearing a family of hardy sons and daughters. Our subject took a part in the hardships which these very early settlers endured while building the institutions which we of today enjoy but scarcely appreciate.

    There are many ways in which the community has felt his presence. His hand put forth to the needy and his unbounded charity in time of necessity will make him long remembered and makes it impossible for words to express our loss. Called from this life, his reward will be more than equal to the lifetime spent in peace with his fellow men.
