Obituary of John Newton Welsh probably from the Summerfield, Kansas newspaper:
John Newton Welsh, proprietor of the Summerfield Hotel, died Monday evening shortly after 9 o'clock. He had been in ill health for several months and had been slowly sinking. Hope for his recovery was abandoned about a month ago and since then his death has been expected, but for his strong constitution he would have passed away sooner. Mr. Welsh's death was due to Brights disease.
He was born at Northfield, Mich., September 24, 1826 where he grew to manhood and afterwards married his present wife, Miss Mary J. Lount near the same place on the 13th day of June 1866. They afterwards moved to Iowa where they resided for time and later on moved to near Wymore, Neb., residing there until they moved here in 1890 when they assumed charge of the hotel and have been conducting it continuously since then. Mr. Welsh was married twice and to his first wife were born four children, one living, John Welsh, of Topeka, who was here to attend the funeral.
To his present wife eight children were born, three boys and five girls: Mrs. Keith of Havana, Ill., Mrs. A. L. Burns of Seneca, Mrs. True Jordan of Wakita, Okla., and Ella who died a few years ago. Harvey and Henry are married and live here. Lount and Susie are at home. Mr. Welsh was a soldier of the Civil War and saw service in the 12th Michigan Volunteer Infantry. He enlisted soon after the beginning of the war, and served a term of three years. He had a strong memory and often told stories of the war, which was his favorite pasttime.
The funeral services were held at the house Wednesday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. W. A. Sexton of the M. E. church. The funeral was largely attended.
After John's death his widow, Mary Jane, married Timothy D Mills.
