WILLIAM JOSEPH WELLER
William Joseph Weller was born September 8, 1854, near Dever(town), Ohio. At the age of 12 years he moved with his parents to the vicinity of Corning, Iowa.
In his 25th year he was married to Marietta Gaskill of Corning, Iowa to which union five children were born.
The family resided in Adams County, Iowa until the year 1886, when they came with team and wagon to eastern Colorado, arriving in what is now Yuma County in the spring of 1887. During that summer Mr. Weller homesteaded land 9-1/2 miles southeast of Wray, where the family resided until 1907, at which time they moved to Wray.
From 1907 until his last illness, which began about 9 months ago, Mr. Weller divided his time between the shoe business, in which he was engaged in Wray, and the general management of his farming interests.
During the 9 months preceding his death he was almost a constant sufferer and the end came Thursday August 18.
Mr. Weller led a conscientious Christian life, having at an early age become a member of the Methodist Church, in which organization he was active as class leader and Sabboth School worker.
Shortly after coming to Colorado he affiliated himself with the L.D.S. Church of which faith he remained an ardent supporter to the time of his death.
Mr. Weller leaves his wife and only daughter, Mrs. George F. Bullard of Fort Collins, Colorado and four sons, W. H. of Las Animas, Colorado, Walter W. of Elizabeth, Colorado, Harry H. and George E. both of Wray, also three sisters, Mrs. S. J. Lewis of Emporia, Kansas, Mrs. W. H. Penton and Mrs. B. E. Lewis of Wray and one half brother, J. W. Pletcher of Smith Center, Kansas.
