Word was received by Mrs. Lucy Rollins of South Burlington of the death of her brother, A.W. Wells, in San Diego, Cal., where he went for his health about nine years ago. Mr. Wells was born in Hinesburgh, February 14, 1848, and enlisted in the Civil War when quite a young man. He was sent as a recruit to the ninth regiment, Vt. Vols., with which he served till the war closed, when he returned home with health impaired that he never recovered, but had been an invalid for many years. He leaves a wife in California, who has tenderly cared for him during his long illness, an aged mother and two sisters in Huntington and two brothers in Starksboro, besides the sister in Burlington, who have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in the loss of a much respected son and brother. He was buried under the auspices of the G.A.R. of which he was a member.
