George Weston Welch, a lifelong resident of the city, died at 5:20 o’clock last evening (October 1, 1905) at his home, 172 Eighth street, from the effects of a stroke of paralysis. He had been in failing health for several months and was bedfast the last three weeks. The funeral arrangements will be made today.
Mr. Welch was 54 years of age and was born near Williamsport. The greater part of his life was spent in this city. He was a kilnhand by trade and was last employed at the Croxall pottery in Second street. He was a brother of the late Curt Welch, the famous base ball player, and was widely esteemed and respected by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife and the following children: Irene, Williard and Walter Welch; and Mrs. Maggie Herbert, all of this city; one sister, Mrs. Josephine Fife, of Lisbon, and one brother, William Welch, of East Liverpool.
The family resided on the Ross Meadow farm for nearly a year returning to the city three weeks ago when the health of the father became so critical. Mr. Welch was a man who was greatly devoted to his family and the sympathy of the many friends of the family and deceased will go out to them in their bereavement.
