Obituary

Sheffield.

Wells Gray passed away at his home Friday of bronchial pneumonia. He had been sick only a few days but they were days of suffering. He was about 75 years old. He leaves a wife and a large family of children, a daughter Mrs. Peck, in Iowa, Mrs. Tanner, in New Hampshire, and the rest live nearby. He has been a hard working man and will be greatly missed in his family where he was so much needed. He was an old veteran.
