  • Burial*: 1871; Orland Memorial Park Cemetery, Orland Park, Cook Co., Illinois, USAG; Matthew Wells, son of John Wells and Mary Dring, was a native of Walpole St Peter, Norfolk, England. While his birth was registered in the second quarter of 1848 in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England, he was baptized in Apr 1848 at Walpole St Peter in Norfolk. (It was not just Cambridgeshire BMD's that were registered in Wisbech, but also those of Norfolk.) Matthew immigrated to the United States as an infant with his widowed mother, siblings, and maternal grandparents aboard the Switzerland, arriving in New York on 30 Jun 1848. The family settled in Orland, Cook, Illinois. His mother remarried about 1849.

    Matthew served in Company G of the 39th Illinois Infantry, as did his brother Thomas Humphrey. His service entry date was 9 Mar 1864. He survived the Civil War, mustering out on 30 May 1865. Matthew had been a prisoner of war. He married Susannah Rachael Hewson, daughter of William Hewson and Susannah Murfitt, about 1870. They had one child, a daughter, Flora, born in 1871. Matthew died that same year and was interred in Orland Memorial Park Cemetery. His widow remarried in 1873. Matthew's headstone was erected years later, in 1934.

    Sources include England birth and baptismal records, passenger lists, census records (1850, 1860, 1870 Orland), military records, including the 1929 Illinois Roll of Honor (War Veteran Burials), his headstone, and cemetery records, as well as the records of family members, including his daughter's death certificate.

  • Burial*: 21 December 1896; Elmwood Cemetery, Sycamore, DeKalb Co., Illinois, USAG; True Republican, 23 December 1896

    Willard H. Wells died Monday night. This simple announcement will bring sadness to hundreds of friends and acquaintances, who have known him and admired his noble qualities since his early childhood, but with this feeling will come the comforting thought that he has been relieved of his long and terrible sufferings, and at last is at rest.

    Mr. Wells was born in Sycamore 35 years ago, his father being a farmer. After a youth spent here, he removed to York, Neb., where he was engaged for some two years with his brother, Ambrose, in stock raising. From there he went to Minneapolis and conducted a hay and feed business. Six years ago he married Miss Florence Lindsay, of Minneapolis, formerly of Sycamore. While engaged in business at Minneapolis he received an injury from heavy lifting, which gradually became more troublesome, and three years ago last summer he returned to Sycamore.

    For two years Mr. Wells had been confined to his bed unable to sit up, his ailment having developed tuberculosis of the spinal column. He bore his sufferings with the utmost fortitude and patience. His once robust physique slowly wasted away until death came as a relief.

    The deceased leaves a widow, two brothers, George and Ambrose, and two sisters, Mrs. F. E. Wyman and Mrs. Marcenas Hall. The funeral will be held at the home this Wednesday at 1 o’clock and the remains will be interred in Elmwood.
