Aged Amos Alspach Dead

Amos Alspach, who passed away Sunday evening in Chester township, probably was the oldest man in Wells County, after the death of Uncle John Studabaker of this city. He was 91 years of age and his death came after an illness of several months from a complication of diseases. He had made his home for a number of years with a son, Calvin Alspach. A wife and three sons, Samuel, John and Elijah, preceded him in death. The funeral services were held this morning at Asbury Chapel near which pace the family resides.
