Sarah Underwood Wells was born at Montville, Geauga county, Ohio, October 17th, 1827, and died at her home near Wellsburg, Grundy county, Iowa, Saturday, November 9th, 1895.
She spent her early life at her birthplace in Ohio, and being the oldest child she took the place of mother to her father's family at the death of her own mother, which place she occupied until her marriage to George Wells November 27th, 1848. She moved to Grundy county, Iowa, where she resided until her death. Mrs. Wells became a member of the M. E. church at an early age, her father being pastor of that church, and her life was that of a consistent christian. Cheerfulness, kindness and gentleness were the leading traits of her character, and these characteristics were beautifully exemplified during her long and trying illness. A refined and gentle woman, kind to the poor and afflicted, carrying sunshine and brightness wherever she went, she will be sadly missed by her relatives, friends and neighbors. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Wells, April 19th, 1853, but was called away from earth at the age of eight years leaving them childless. Besides her husband she leaves to mourn her death: a sister, Mrs. Martha Comstock, who has for some years been a member of the family; George Murry, a nephew, and Mrs. G. A. Wheelock, a niece, both of Germania, Iowa, and other more distant relatives, friends and acquaintances.
The family desire to thank all those who assisted in caring for Mrs. Wells during her long and trying affliction.
