Mr. Jesse Welch, one of the pioneer citizens of Lucas county, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. S. Kelly, on north Grand street, on Monday morning, Nov. 2, 1914, at one o'clock, at the age of 86 years, 5 months and 27 days. Death was due to infirmities of old age.

Funeral services were held at Mt. Zion church near Oakley on Tuesday forenoon at eleven o'clock, conducted by Rev. Milton Young, pastor of the Baptist church at Indianola, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Mt. Zion cemetery.

Jesse Welch was born in Indiana on May 6th, 1828. He was married there to Miss Mary Ferguson, who survives him. Three children were born to them, all of whom are living and were present at the funeral services. They are Mrs. L. N. Edson and Mrs. W. S. Kelly, of this city, and W. E. Welch, of Ottumwa.

He is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. D. H. Devore, of Lincoln, Neb., and Mrs. Tabitha Russell, of Ashland, Neb., and three brothers, G. W. Welch, of Macomb, Ill., Richard Welch, of Ashland, Neb., and W. L. Welch, of St. Joseph, Mo.

He was highly regarded by a large circle of friends, who will learn of his demise with sorrow and who will extend heartfelt sympathy to the sorrowing relatives.
