O. P. Wells, for many years one of the prominent business men of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., passed away Nov. 5, 1919. O. Phillip Wells was born at Springfield, Pa., Aug. 15, 1838. He was married to Miss Angeline Graham March 9, 1858.

His wife died May 21, 1906, and since that time he has made his home with his daughters.

Mr. Wells was a man of great industry. Through all his younger years and well on into old age he worked early and late. He was a man of fine traits and character, honest and fair in his dealings and aiming to do his work in life thoroughly and well. He was a kind husband and father and a good citizen for the community. His life was one of usefulness.

He leaves two daughters, Mrs. W. J. Marsh and Mrs. Homer C. Clark. One daughter, Emma, died when a little girl.
