CHE CAMERON COUNTY PRESS. ESTABLISHED BY C. B. GOULD, MARCH, 1866. VOL. 43 DEATH'S DOINGS. WELSH. MICHAEL WELSH, aged 80, died on Thursday, Sept. 23rd, 1909, at the resi dence of his daughter, Mrs. R. R. Mc- Quay, after being confined to his bed for only one week and maintained ulI his faculties until almost tho last moment, surrounded by several of his children, when he peacefully passed away, after a long and eventful eighty years. Deceased leaves a family of six sons and two daughters—his wife hav passed away twenty-three years ago when the family resided at Turbo ts ville, Pa., —viz! Mra. Lydia McQuay, W. 11. and Thomas, Emporium; Mrs. John Wertman, Turbotsville; Joseph and Geo., Williamsport; John, Watson town; and Edward, New York City. The remains were taken to Turbots ville last Sunday morning, short relig ious services being conducted at the home by Rev. J. Paul Lux, pastor of Presbyterian Church. The remains were accompanied to their last resting place, and laid away in the family plot at Turbotsville beside the wife and mother of his early life, by the follow ing relatives: Mrs. Lydia McQuay, Miss Bessie McQuay. W. H. Welsh, wife and daughter Annie, Thomas Welsh and Mrs. Leon Felt. Mr. Welsh was for very many years a member of Milton, Pa., Masonic lodge. Deceased came here in the early 80's and remained for a time with his child ren and busied himself as his health would permit at lsia oocupation, that of carpenter. He belonged to that class of old school Whig Republicans and was very pronounced in the faith. His long life was full of eventful inci dents and he delighted in recounting the incidents and events of long ago, especially those leading up to the war of the Rebellion. Only a few years more and all who talked, wrote and J voted—always right—will have passed to the great beyond, leaving only a history of those strenuous times that tried men's souis and wrenched the hearts of the loyal mothers and sweet- | hearts.
