    Here's Lydia's and J.B. Wells obituaries as they appeared in our local
    newspaper.

    November 5, 1886 Coldwater Semi-Weekly Republican

    Mrs. John B. Wells died last evening at 7:30 o'clock after quite a long
    illness
    from a complication of diseases. Mrs. Wells was 73 years old and had been
    a resident of Branch County over 50 years. Thirty years ago she married Mr.
    Wells, who survives her. The funeral will be held Sunday at her late
    residence
    on West Chicago street, from where she will be taken to Batavia for burial.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________
    J.B. Wells
    J.B. Wells, age 81 years died of cancerous afflection of the stomach
    at his residence on the Estlow farm northwest of the city Friday morning
    at 6:30 o'clock. The funeral services were held in the Free Baptist
    church at Batavia Sunday, Rev. Lowry
    officiating, and the remains buried in the Batavia Cemetery.
    Mr. Wells was born in Fulton, Co. NY in 1811. In that state he was
    united in marriage with Miss Almira Warner. Together they came to
    Michigan in 1845, choosing this county and township as their home. Mr.
    Wells purchased the farm known now as the A.H. Legg from southeast of
    the city and resided there a number of years. His wife dying in 1851,
    he was in 1858 united in marriage with Mrs. White with whom he lived
    until her death in 1886. Mr. Wells having sold his farm re resided in
    Batavia until the close of the war when he purchased a farm in Bethel,
    where he remained until 1890when he came in this city and engaged in the
    grocery business with his stepson Geo. M. White. Three years ago he
    disposed of his interest but brought property here and continued to
    reside here until 1893 when he went to live with his son on the Estlow
    farm. Six children, J.W. Wells of Washington, Mrs. French, William and
    Frances Wells all of Gratiot, Co., J.B. Wells, Jr. and Mrs. L.A. Carmer
    of Montcalm, Co., survive him.
    Mr. Wells was well known throughout the county, and was much
    respected for his integrity and value as a citizen.

    I hope that this helps you. Let me know if you have any questions.
