    Mrs. Wells

    Died—At Rock Creek near Auburn, on April 23, Mrs. Wells, aged 89 years. Mrs. Wells came to California with her husband in 1854, and with the exception of two or three years, she has lived among us ever since. During this long period, she enjoyed the esteem and confidence of all who knew her. Prior to coming to California, she was a member of the M. E. Church, and she was one of the few whose eyes have not dimmed and whose heart has not grown cold in the Redeemer's cause. For some years past, her health has been poor and she experienced much suffering, yet the approach of death had no terrors for her. Grandmother Wells leaves a large circle of friends to mourn her loss, but they mourn not as those having no hope.
