    OBITUARY:
    Death of Mrs. Welch - 12 Jan 1906
    "Resident Passes Away - Pioneer of the County - Sketch of her Life.
    Mrs. Sarah J. Welch passed into the great unknown yesterday morning at 5:45 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C.C. Wagner of 1112 East Grove Street (Bloomington, Il.), with whom she had made her home since the death of her husband. For eight months she had been ill with dropsey and heart ? and during most of this time she had not been able to lie down but lived day and night in a chair. She suffered intensely almost from the beginning of her illness. The deceased was a pioneer, her parents being early settlers of McLean County. She was the daughter of John G. and Mary Lindley Myers, coming to this county when three years of age.
    In Kentucky she was born in 1830. The Myers home stood where the county Farm is now located, the father selling the property after the death of his wife. He was one of ten children, only two of whom survive, John F. Myers, of this county and William H. Myers, of Vermilion County. At the age of 23, on February 17, 1853, she was united in marriage to Mr. Jeremiah Welch, also a pioneer of this county, who passed away nine years ago next April.
    There were born to this union five children, one of whom, Luella, died at the age of 18 years. Those who survive are:
    Mrs. Mary F. Calhoun, 1201 N. West St;
    Mrs. C.C. Wagner, 1112 East Grove Street;
    John F. Welch of 1205 East Washington Street;
    Dr. W.H. Welch, mayor of Lexington..."
