Welch, one of our oldest citizens, and who has a far-reaching memory. His early home was in a house that stood just back of the present post office building. He recol lects when there were no matches and live coals were borrowed from neighbors to start the morning fire. The one upon whom this duty devolved would go to the door and note where smoke was ascending from a chimney and go there for coals. When fiVe or six years old Mr. Welch recalls visiting a local carpenter and joiner, who also made coffins, as there were no ready-made coffins in those days and this work devolved upon the village joiners, and found him making some matches for the use of himself and neighbors. While there the the shop took fire and Mr. Welch says he was badly frightened, but the fire was extinguished with little or no damage. For several years Mr. Welch worked with Amos R. Boynton, a successful carpenter and builder of his day, in slating, and helped to slate many buildings, laying the slates over the shingles. In 1853 Mr. Welch entered the em ploy of Treadwell & Mansfield, carriage manu facturers, and was engaged in that work up to his retirement a few years ago.
