Smith Welch dies after brief illness

Well-known citizen succumbs to complication of diseases

Smith Welch, aged 78, died at the home of his son, Daniel Welch, at 2503 Washington Avenue yesterday morning about 5:45 o’clock. Although Mr. Welch had been rather feeble and had suffered considerably for the past year or more, he seemed as well as usual and his death came as a shock to his relatives and friends.

Mr. Welch formerly was proprietor of the Delmont hotel, which is now conducted by his son. For several years he made his home on the boulevard, where he conducted a small farm. He made a host of friends on the Peninsula. He is survived by a widow and five children: Frederick Welch, of Phoebus: Mrs. W. M. C. Putman and Ralph Welch, of Greenville, Michigan: Rev. Homer Welch, of Gainesville, VA: and Daniel Welch, proprietor of the Delmont hotel, this city.

The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 10:30 o’clock from the Trinity Methodist Church. The pastor, Rev. W. G. Starr, DD will conduct the services. Interment will be made in Greenlawn cemetery.

The pallbearers will be: Active-W. J. Nelms, James Wynne, W. C. Tightmaster, H. C. Hartman, Stewart and Leroy Jenkins. Honorary: Col. Thompson, Col. J. W. Friend, W. C. Perkins and G. C. Barclay.
