District Flour Inspector Long a Resident of Georgetown
James H. Welch, flour inspector for the District and for the last 55 years a resident of Georgetown, died suddenly yesterday of paralysis in the 75th year of his age.

Mr. Welch was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1841 and remained there until the year 1860, when he removed to Georgetown, where he engaged in the manufacture of flour and under the firm name of Welch Brothers Milling Company operated the Old Columbia Mills.

After retiring from the milling business he was appointed flour inspector for the District, which position he held up to the time of his death.

Funeral services will be held in the chapel at Oak Hill Cemetery tomorrow morning at 11 o’clock, the Reverend J. H. Blake officiating. Mr. Welch is survived by five daughters: Mrs. Sewell Cissel, Mrs. Walter Carroll, Mrs. J. Frank Jones and Miss Louise Welch, all of Washington, and Mrs. Bruce Aldrich, of Baltimore.
