MRS. SARAH WELCH
Word has just reached us of the death of Mrs. Sarah Welch at her home about 4 miles S.E. of Belgrade.
Death came to relieve one of Nance County's early pioneer residents Wednesday night at 10 o'clock. Mrs. Welch has been a great sufferer for the past eight months from that dread disease, cancer of the stomach. The funeral will be held in Fullerton on Saturday Feb. 12 immediately after the morning train from Spalding arrives. Obituary next week.

A large circle of friends were grieved to read in last week's paper that Mrs. Walsh had died on Wed. night. Mrs. Walsh had been a great sufferer fro the past ten months, but she had borne her suffering with the same fortitude that characterized her exemplary life during the long years of her residence in Nance County, as the County was passing through the trans-migrating period, converting it from a blank prairie to fertile fields of productiveness. It is almost beyond the scope of imagination of the young generation to comprehend the magnitude of the task that lay ahead of the pioneer settlers of a new country, in their struggle against the adversities that have to be met and overcome in protecting their sacred rights against the evil elements that were so prevalent in the country in the early days. This is the task that Mrs. Walsh faced after her husband, Patrick Welch, died some 32 years ago, leaving Mrs. Welch with a large family of small children to care for in addition to the task of keeping up her farm in a way that would provide a return sufficient to meet the necessities of life and educate her children, and as a living monument to the memory of her life's ambition, to educate and train her children in a spiritual and social manner, is exemplified by the fact that six children are left who are an honor to her name and a credit to the community in which they live.
Sarah Clementine Hall was born in Mt. Vernon, Indiana, on Nov. 16, 1858; where she lived till the age of 16 yrs., from there she went to Ill., where she remained until she was married to Mr. P. J. Walsh May 5, 1879.
In the year 1881 Mr. and Mrs. Walsh moved to Neb. In the year of 1883 they settled on the farm 3 miles south east of Belgrade where she still lived at the time of her death, Feb. 10, 1921, at the age of 62 years, 2 mo. 25 days.
