    NOTE: Death Notice provided by Dan Southam.

    Death Notice, 6 Sep 1883, "The Elyria Republican" (Elyria, Lorain Co., OH),

    Abbie S. Wells was born September 13th, 1837, in Brownhelm, Ohio, and died August 22d, 1883.

    November 29th, 1860, at the age of 23, she was married to Frederick H. Bacon. She was the mother of nine children, seven of whom are now living, four boys and three girls. Little Fred at the age of fourteen months, and Annie at the age of sixteen years, preceded their mother to the spirit world.

    A faithful wife and a devoted mother will be missed in this home, and a good neighbor by the community. Though not a member of the church she was usually there and took an active part in the Sabbath-school. She often prayed with her children and was anxious for them to lead a Christian life. For the past four months she has been a great sufferer from a complicated form of disease, chiefly of the heart and ending in dropsy. Her patience was remarkable, and no word of complaint escaped her. Her loved ones left nothing untried for her safety and comfort; but alas, all earthly ties must be broken, and finally after bidding all farewell she quietly sank to rest on the morning of August 22d, 1882 [sic: 1883]. May her prayers be answered and the blessings of God rest upon that bereaved home.

    The funeral, conducted by Rev. M. D. Chilson, was held at the residence in Brownhelm, and was very largely attended, after which the remains of the deceased were interred in a vault in the cemetery at the center.

    Melancholy Accident
    About 6 o'clock on Monday eve intelligence was received that a dangerous and probably fatal accident had befallen Mr. Horace Wells, the well-known type founder of this City. Mr. Wells was making a ________ at Oxford of which, incidentally, he was for many years a respected citizen. While walking in the public square, opposite the hotel, the accidental discharge of a rifle in the hands of a young man named Boyce, and a ball which entered his body... little hope for his recovery. He declined services of a physician of the town, Dr. Peelte, of this city had been sent for.

    Cincinnati Gazette, May 17, 1851
    Death of Mr. Wells
    Intelligence was received in the city last evening that mr. Wells had died at an early hour yesterday morning. His remains will be brought to the city for interment.

    Cincinnati Gazette, May 19, 1851
    The Late Horace Wells
    This lamented gentleman ws largely attended on Saturday afternoon, from the New Jerusalem Church on Centre Street. Mr. Wells came to this city about the year 1820. He was, we believe, a native of Connecticut. Very soon after his arrival here he engaged in the manufacture of Type, although originally he was bred to the cabinet making business. The slight demand at that time for the article which he was engaged in making, and the strong competition of Eastern capital drove him about the year 1732 (1832?) to a farm in the immediate vicinity of the city and afterwards he removed to Butler County, near Oxford. There he was distinguished for his horticultural tastes and industry, until the year 1843 when he returned to the city, and resumed charge of the Cncinnati Type Foundry, which he was successfully managing at the time of his death. Mr. Wells swas distinguished for his mechanics ingenuity and taste in his business and _______ believe rendered material service by valuable improvement in every department of his art. Under a cold exterior, he was a man of generous sentiment, uprightness of character and goodness of heart. He leaves a large family to deplore his loss.

    Horace Wells
    We are glad to hear is likely to recover. Strange as it may appear that a ball should pass almost through a mans body, and be taken out without causing death, yet such is likely to be the fact. Dr. Pulte returned yesterday and informed one of our reporters that he entertains no doubt that Mr. Wells will recover. This is truly good news. PS. Since writing the above, we learn from Mr. Wise, who left Oxford at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, that no hope of Mr. Wells living was then entertained.

    Death of Horace Wells
    This gentleman expired yesterday morning at 6 o'clock. His family returned to the City last evening. His remains were brought here last night for interment. We have this from the conductor of the omnibus.

    The Centennial Review of Cincinnati... Cincinnati, J.M. Elstner & co., 1888, J.W. Leonard Comp., page 124 - excerpts only
    ...The first quarter of a century of the history of the city had passed before there was any considerable number of printing, establishments in Ohio, and the earliest attempt to start a type foundry and printers' supply warehouse was that made in the establishment in 1817 by Oliver Wells and Horace Wells, his son, of the Cincinnati Type Foundry. Their venture was a successful one and steadily increased with the growth of the city and surrounding country. The firm was O. & H. Wells, and was continued until 1830 when the present company was incorporated by Nathan Guildford. This company is, therefore, the oldest corporation of a manufacturing character in existence in the city or in the West... The original location of the business was on Pearl street east of Main Street. The next site was Walnut, between Third and Fourth street, west side. The present site was purchased in 1826 adn the foundry moved to it in 1828... The reputation of the foundry for meritorious good and jpropriety of business conduct has been carefully preserved throughout the 71 years covered by it's history.

    The City of Cincinnati and its resources. Published by the Cincinnati Times Star Co., 1891
    Page 126 under the section entitled 'Type, Printing Presses. Printers' Rol era. etc."
    The Cincinnati Type Foundry can trace its origin back to the year 1817. In that year, Oliver Wells, Horace Wells and John White came to the then village of Cincinnati and established on the Lower Market, above John Foot's grocery, the first letter foundry this side of the Alleghanies. The tools and appliances brought with them were not of the highest order, even for these days, and today would be regarded as relics of antiquity. The consisted merely of a few hand moulds, a few roman faces, and a kettle to melt the metal in. However, they were sufficient for the demands of the neighborhood. Printers were then not so particular and --- that the public demanded was that the print should be readable. Business increased, and in 1830 the partnership was changed to a corporation, with Elihu White, of New York, Oliver Wells and Nathan Guildford, of Connecticut as the principal stockholders. At the same time the business of building hand presses was added to the manufacture of type... (the rest of the article deals with the further development of the company)
