Col. Welch had a dispatch from Arlington, Texas, Saturday informing him of the death that morning of Capt. E. T. Rochester, formerly of Stanford. He had a complication of kidney and stomach troubles and had been sick more than a year. Capt. Rochester got his military title in the Confederate army. He was in Col. Grigsby's 6th Kentucky, and served during the war. Afterwards he married Mrs. Helm, a widowed sister of Col. Welch, who died about a year ago. They leave four children Misses Mattie, Louise and Gracie and Edwin, all of whom are grown and live in Texas. Capt. Rochester was a popular and excellent gentleman and his friends here will learn with regret that he is no more. Kentuckiana Digital Library.
