Funeral of Joseph F. Wells

The funeral of Joseph F. Wells, last Sunday morning, took place from the Methodist Episcopal church. A large concourse of people attended the obsequies, and took part in the last sad rites over the mortal remains of an old resident of Pawnee county. The sermon was preached by Rev. Bixler, and the ceremonies were conducted by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows of this city, one of whom he was.
Joseph F. Wells was born, September 14th, 1838, in Indiana in early life he removed to Douglass county, Illinois, where he was united in marriage to Miss Lydia Hopkins, March 16th, 1861. He came to Pawnee county, Kansas, March 4th, 1876, and died on the 23rd day of December, 1891, and was buried on the 27th of December. Mr. Wells left a wife and three sons, all of whom attended the funeral but Oliver, who is enlisted in the regular army.
In the dozen years or more that Mr. Wells was a resident of Pawnee county he became known and won the esteem of a large number of its citizens.
