James C. Welch
Rutland Daily Herald, June 13, 1911:
James C. Welch, for many years a resident at the Brock house, died Sunday at the Soldiers' home in Bennington. He was 70 years old and born in Ireland, coming to this country at the age of 12 years. When the Civil war broke out, Mr. Welch was living in Brandon and enlisted in Company H, 5th Vermont Infantry, serving in the army from 1861 to 1866, when he was honorably discharged. He was badly wounded in the battle of the Wilderness.
Mr. Welch was employed by the Howe Scale company before they moved here and he came to Rutland with the concern. He was unmarried.
The body was brought here last evening on the 8:30 o'clock train.
The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock at St. Peter's church.
