He had passed the crisis of the disease successfully and was to all appearances doing well, when suddenly and without warning, he complained of his heart and was gone. When a lad of nine he came from New York with his parents and moved onto the farm two and one half miles north of town where the remainder of his life was spent. Of a thoughtful turn of mind he was glad to avail himself of good High school privileges and graduated from Dodge Center High school in 1896. He became a Christian and was baptized by Eld. Wheeler and joined the Dodge Center S.D.B. church June 8, 1889 of which he has been a faithful and useful member, for some years being its moderator, and a member of the board of trustees when he died. He was married to Zalia Iola Babcock, November 20, 1907. To them were born Roberta, and the twins Loyal and Lucile. Besides his wife and children he leaves to mounr his loss an aged mother, Mrs. Sarah Wells of Dodge Center, an only sister Miss Anna, a trained nurse who lovingly and tenderly cared for him in his last illness, and two brothers, William Henry of Charleston, S.C. and Floyd Brown of Utica, N.Y. Many other near realtives and dear friends remain to feel keenly a personal loss.
    K.R. Wells was a progressive farmer and cattleman. His advice and counsel in various farm and producer were constantly being sought and for several years he was one of the auditor of the Farmers Creamery Association. The school found in him a staunch and loyal support and as a parton and trustee he saw to it that the school of his district was one of the best of its class and always 100% American. Always a loyal citizen, interested in the best welfare of his country, he was during the war, one of the most active, patriotic and untiring workers in drives for Liberty Bonds, Red Cross and Y.M.C.A. as well as doing his 'bit' in producing on the farm the crops most needed by the nation. It was a great sorrow to him that in his country's need he was not able to bear arms in her behalf.
    He was a good and faithful friends, a tender son and brother, a loving husband and father. Avobe all he believed in God, and Jesus Christ was his Savior and personal friend. In a wonderful degree he was a man of pure mind and clean life. The state and community, the church an dhome have suffered an incalculable loss in the passing away of such a man.
    Farewell services were conducted by pastor H.C. VanHorn at the home Saturday afternoon, April 30. Friends from other state and many communities were present and with the large host of the community bore tribute to the love and highest esteem in which he was held.

  • ObituaryText: In DeRuyter, N. Y., March 28th, Matthew Wells, senior, in the 87th year of his age.
    Brother Wells early made a profession of faith in Christ, the sincerity of which he has evinced by an unvarying attachment to the cause for three-fourths of a century. He was one of the first settlers in DeRuyter, and had not ceased during life to interest himself in the public welfare, and especially in the welfare of the church of his choice. Though he was never forward in the improvement of public gifts, his hand was ever open to advance the interests of Zion. His zeal in this way was evinced to the last, and in his last testament he left $100 for the Seventh-day Baptist Missionary Society.
    He delighted much in the study of the Bible, and he was emphatically a man of prayer, particularly secret prayer, and his devotions at the family altar are said to have been peculiarly fervent.1
