Obit provided by Marsha Petrie: Obituary of Elizabeth (Arnold) Welch.Died, at her residence in Jackson county, West Virginia, October 17,1878, Mrs. Elizabeth Welch consort of John Welch.

The subject of this sketch was born in Harrison county, Virginia, Sept.15, 1801. At the time of her death, and for fifty-eight years previous,she was a member of the M.E. Church, ever ready with encouraging counsel to the young and those who seemed to weary in the Redeemer's cause she had words of encouragement and consolation. For many years previous to her death she was a great sufferer, and for fifteen months she was prostrated by partial paralysis. During all this time of terrible affliction, if there was anyone of the family ill or suffering the slightest scratch or wound, she seemed forgetful of her own affliction to inquire minutely after them. Her soul was the temple of kindness, as hundreds will attest who have been the recipients of her motherly care and nursing during sickness.

She is gone- gone from a world of sorrow, trials and afflictions to that upper and better world of peace and eternal rest. She leaves a husband, now over 80 years old, and nine children. God grant they may all profit by the noble precepts and examples she left them.
