Della WELSH To Be Brought From Oregon For Burial Here

Mrs. Della WELSH passed away at Medford, Ore., April 26, at the home of her daughter Mrs. Harold BROWN (sic. the first name of the daughter was Lulu).

Mrs. BROWN will accompany the remains to Fairfield where short funeral services will be held at the Fairfield Evergreen cemetery May 3 at 10 o'clock a.m. The body will be at the Murray funeral home.

*Transcribed verbatim for genealogy purposes. I am not related to the person(s) mentioned.

Transcriber note: While the death notice was published using the married surname "WELSH", the correct married surname was "WELCH". Her maiden name was TEMPLETON. Because of this published error, various TEMPLETON family researchers have incorrectly attributed the "WELSH" married surname to her and to her husband, William A WELCH.

They are buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Fairfield, Iowa (SDof17-002) in a plot shared by William's parents, John and Clarissa CHASE WELCH, sharing a joint headstone facing inscription as well. The inscriptions, headstone base, and cemetery records all use the WELCH surname. The inscription portion of the headstone has been toppled from the base and rests inscription side upwards on the ground. Some TEMPLETON family researchers have attributed the burial to Fairfield Cemetery/Old Fairfield Cemetery/Old Fairfield City Cemetery. The correct cemetery name is Evergreen Cemetery and it is a separate entity in the Fairfield city limits.

The inscription for William is engraved "William A. WELCH". His middle name has been given as Alonzo in some TEMPLETON research files, but that name does not appear on the headstone nor his obituary of 1896.

The inscription for his wife is: "L. Dell TEMPLETON" and her engraved death date is April 27, 1943. Her death notice above indicates that the death date was April 26, 1943. Her full name can be found listed as "Lelia Dellpherine TEMPLETON WELSH" in an online source.
