    Retired Army Officer With a Long and Distinguished Military Career Passes Away.
    FORTY YEARS IN SERVICE
    Almond B. Wells, brigadier-general, United States Army, retired, died at his home No. 75 Hamilton street, early this morning after an illness extending over a period of about a year and a half. His condition became worse within the past few days and last night was critical. He passed away quietly at about 5 o'clock.
    General Wells was widely known in military circles and had had a long and honored military career. He was born in Orleans county, New York, June 16, 1842. At the breaking out of the Civil War he enlisted and served honorably through that great struggle. He continued in the United States Army service the remainder of his life until retired by age. He enlisted in the Civil War with three brothers, the youngest a drummer boy of thirteen, and two cousins. The General enlisted as the First Lieutenant in the First Nevada Cavalry and at Twenty-one years of age he became captain. He was mustered out with his rank in 1865.
    In 1866 he was appointed second lieutenant of the Eighth United States Cavalry and served with that regiment in New Mexico and Texas as first lieutenant, a captain and then major. He made the famous march from Fort Davis, Texas, to Fort Meade, South Dakota, one of the longest marches ever made by a cavalry regiment. During the Sioux Indian campaign in 1890-91 he commanded troops for nearly a year in the Bad Lands of South Dakota. In 1898 he commanded his regiment when it was sent to Cuba with the army of occupation at the time of the war with Spain. He was after this war promoted to lieutenant of the Ninth Cavalry and sailed with that regiment under orders for China to reinforce the troops during the Boxer uprising. At Nagasaki, Japan, he received orders to proceed to the Philippine Islands where he served for three years returning to this country as colonel of the First Cavalry.
    August 15, 1903 he was retired from service with the rank of brigadier general, having served forty years. He was a member of the Loyal Legion.
    He is survived by his widow, Mary Eliza, daughter of the late General Thomas Rush Spencer of this city; two sons, Captain Rush Spencer Wells, of the Eighth United States Cavalry now stationed in the Philippine Islands, Almond B. Wells of this city, the Misses Mary M., and Edith Wells of this city.
    The funeral will be held from the residence, 75 Hamilton street, Monday afternoon at three o'clock.

  • Milit-Beg: circa June 1864; 1st Nevada Cavalry - Capt Johns, Fort Churchill, Lyon Co., Nevada, USA; A temporary post established by troops from the 1st Nevada Cavalry in the summer of 1864, Occupying it during their expedition in July and August of that year, it as located in the center of Susanville, adjacent to, in Lassen County Captain Almond B. Wells, with Company D, 1st Nevada Cavalry, fromFort Churchill, Nevada, set up a base camp here which they named Camp Johns. From this print, they toured the areas of northeastern California and northwestern Nevada. They returned to Fort Churchill on August 28, 1864.
  • Note*: 1870; Nevada, USA; Captain Wells was at that time a comparatively young
    man, not yet thirty, who had served in the Nevada Volunteer
    Cavalry during the war, had been appointed First Lieutenant
    in the 8th Cavalry when the regiment was organized in 1866,
    and had just been promoted to Captain when I joined. He
    was not married at that time, but inside of a year married
    a lady at Santa Fe, the daughter of a Surveyor General 15 of
    the territory of New Mexico, a sweet motherly woman to
    whom I was always much attached, and whom I have not
    seen since 1888. He was a man of good education, but had
    a peculiarity that made it hard to serve with him at times,
    and that was his exceeding jealousy of the officers of his
    troop. He expected us to obey his orders absolutely and, of
    course, that was right ; but the slightest variation or exceed-
    ing of an order, the doing of anything however slight with-
    out first consulting him, made him savage in a moment, and
    this peculiarity made him a hard man to get along with. He
    was a magnificent drill master, very proud of his troop, but
    knew little how to manage money matters and the troop fund
    was always indebted to him for, to do him justice, he never
    hesitated to advance his own money to purchase anything in
    the shape of provisions, vegetables, etc., if needed in addi-
    tion to the ration. The ration, in those days, was not what it
    is now. Fresh beef was furnished seven days out of ten,
    but was poor and tough. Vegetables were absolutely un-
    known in New Mexico at that time; from 1870 to 1874, I
    do not remember ever seeing an Irish potato, and sweet
    potatoes only once. Besides the beef, the men had bacon
    three days out of ten, salt fish, bread baked daily, which was

    15. Probably the daughter of T. Rush Spencer, Surveyor General of New Mexico
    in 1870 and very likely in 1871. James K. Proudfit took the office in early October,
    1872. I have no direct reference for the year 1871.
