John Wellesley Greathead
     John Wellesley Greathead was born on 24 February 1834 in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, USA.3,4,2 He was the son of Thomas Williams Greathead and Frances Sarah Hux. In the census of 1 June 1840 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, he was listed as the son of Thomas Williams Greathead The 1840 US Federal census only lists the names of the head of the household. The remainder are listed as numbers within age groups. So the relationship has been assumed. Also in the household were two people I cannot identify, both are female, one aged 20-30 the other aged 30-40.5 In the census of 1 June 1850 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, he was listed as the son of Thomas Williams Greathead John was a clerk and was enumerated twice, once with his parents and secondly where he worked.6,7 John assisted his father in his mercantile business, and at the age of sixteen years engaged with Mr. Daniel Snively, of Greencastle, where he remained for two years, and then went to Dubuque, Iowa, where, on the strength of a letter of recommendation from Mr. Snively, he immediately secured a clerkship. His employer's finances being in an embarrassed condition, he concluded to change employers and selected one of two offers which he considered the best; this employer soon failed, and he was selected by the assignee to close up the business, which responsible position he filled with eminent satisfaction. In September 1854, he entered the employ of Messrs. Barney, Scott and Co., a large drygoods house, as bookkeeper and cashier, where he remained until 1857, when he severed his connection with this firm to accept an offer of co-partnership with his father, at the old stand in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania.

J. W. Greathead was a merchant in the Fulton County town of McConnellsburg. With his father, the 29-year-old co-owned a thriving general merchandise store, which had been cleaned out during a Confederate raid in the fall of 1862. Undaunted, the two men had restocked their inventory and resumed operations. During the 1863 Gettysburg Campaign, Confederate troops occupied McConnellsburg on several occasions. On June 29, Rebel cavalry chased off a company of the First New York Lincoln Cavalry and entered town. Fearful that the shop would be raided again, John Greathead asked an officer to post guards at the door to prevent looting. The Rebel assigned three men to the post, ordering them to "see that this man and his property are not molested."
After a while, a thankful Greathead sat down on the doorstep with one of the guards and began talking. The borough of York was among the topics of the friendly conversation.
As they sat on the steps in front of the store, the guard casually asked Greathead if he had "heard the news from Vicksburg." When the merchant replied that he had not, the trooper boasted that the siege had been lifted. He added that Confederate forces had also retaken Chattanooga. A skeptical Greathead politely listened as the guard continued. However, when the cavalryman mentioned that York, Pa. had also been taken, Greathead was compelled to challenge his assertions.
The shopkeeper looked at the braggart and laughingly replied, "You have spoilt it all now. There are no fortifications at York worth naming."
Greathead suggested, "Your officers evidently are cheering you up with stories of victories not won."
They spent some time discussing the fortunes of the war before being interrupted by an arrogant officer who rudely interrogated Greathead about the Yankees who had recently left. Not satisfied with the merchant's answers, he finally bade him "go to a place noted for its heat." When the glowering officer rode off, the trio of guards burst out laughing. They explained that most of their officers were men of education and wealth who were not liked by the rank and file because of their pompous attitude. They resumed their conversation until it was time for the patrol to leave McConnellsburg. Greathead's merchandise was untouched.
Vicksburg, Chattanooga, and York all in one conversation... it may have been one of the few times in the war these three Confederate objectives were mentioned together as being equally important and worthy of a boast.8 In the census of 1 June 1860 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, he was listed as the son of Thomas Williams Greathead John was a merchant living with his parents.9 He married Almire Virginia Dellinger, daughter of Henry William Dellinger and Margaret Snyder, on 2 October 1860.3,4 John was listed as the head of the family on the census of 1 June 1870 in Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, John and his wife Virginia were living together. John was working as a variety merchant.10 John was listed as the head of the family on the census of 10 June 1880 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, John was a dry goods merchant living with his wife and children.11 From April, 1858, until 1868, the business was continued under the firm name of T. & J. W. Greathead, when the senior member retired, and John W. continued the business alone until January 1, 1884, when he associated with his son, R. Newton, with him in the business, the style of the firm being called J. W. Greathead & Son. In 1862 the firm then in business lost nearly everything by reason of the rebels, who invaded the borough and pillaged the store. This, however, did not discourage them, for they continued business notwithstanding constant menace of recurring invasions. The year 1881 completed the first half-century of business conducted at this stand, during which time it only suffered an interruption of about five weeks, when the store-building was being remodeled. Two stools made of pine - that were made and used by the founder of the business, Mr. Agnew - are still retained by the present proprietors as relics.8 John was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 1 June 1900 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, John was a general merchant.12 John was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 20 April 1910 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, John was living on his own income.13 John died on 17 December 1911 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, aged 77 from general asthenia.4,2,14,15 John was buried on 19 December 1911 in Methodist Cemetery, McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania, USA.2,14,15 The Fulton County News wrote on 21 December 1911 - ONE ON BEFORE - John W. Greathead.
At the ripe age of 77 years, 9 months, and 23 days, John W. Greathead peacefully passed to his final reward at his home in this place, last Sunday morning. The funeral, conducted by his pastor Rev. John V. Royer, of the Methodist Episcopal church, assisted by the other pastors in town, took place Tuesday afternoon and interment was made in the family lot in the old Methodist graveyard on Frst street.

John W. Greathead was a son of Thomas Greathead one of McConnellsburg's old time merchants, and he was born in McConnellsburg, February 24, 1834. During his early boyhood days he assisted his father in the store which was then conducted in the building in which the Republican printing office is now located. At the age of sixteen years, he engaged with Daniel Snively at Greencastle, where he remained two years, and then went to Dubuque, Iowa, where, upon the strength of a letter of recommendation from Mr. Snively, he immediately secured a clerkship and made good. When less than twenty one years of age, he entered the employ at Barney & Scott, a large Dry Goods house in Dubuque, as book-keeper and cashier, where be remained until he was twenty three years of age, when he returned to McConnellsburg to enter into a copartnership with his father, and during the next ten years the business was conducted under the firm name of T. & J. W. Greathead. Then the father retired and the business was continued by J. W. Greathead, who as the years passed by and advancing age came upon him, he associated with himself one and another of his sons, but his familiar figure was seen in the store until a very few weeks ago, when he was confined to his room.

On the second day of October, 1860, Mr. Greathead was united in marriage with Miss A. Virginia, daughter of Col. W. H. Dellinger, of Clearspring, Md. To this union were born eleven children, seven of whom are living; Thomas William, Morton, Delaware county, Pa; Robert Newton, and Frank Stanley, Norfolk, Va; Ormund Leroy, Emily Virginia, Wellsley Hux, and Charles Dollinger, McConnellsburg.

John W. Greathead was, from early life, a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and few men have been more loyal to the church of his choice. His devotion was not spasmodic, but year in and year out, unless prevented by sickness or some reason that would be acceptable to the Great Master, he was always in his place in the preaching service, the prayer meeting, the class meeting and the Sunday school; and thus when no came down to enter the shadows, his mind was full of perfect peace.16,17

Wellesley Hux Greathead
     Wellesley Hux Greathead was born on 4 October 1876 in Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA.2,3,4 He was the son of John Wellesley Greathead and Almire Virginia Dellinger. In the census of 10 June 1880 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, he was listed as the son of John Wellesley Greathead.5 Wells H aged 22 who resided in Marshalltown, a native of Pennsylvania, enlisted on 26 April 1898. He was mustered in on 2 June 1898 and out on 13 May 1899 when in Savannah, Georgia. He received a Civil War Pension.6 In the census of 1 June 1900 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, he was listed as the son of John Wellesley Greathead Wellesley was a merchant.7 In the census of 20 April 1910 in McConnellsburg, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, USA, he was listed as the son of John Wellesley Greathead.8 He married Estell Sipes, daughter of John Nelson Sipes and Minerva Sipes, on 13 December 1913 in Pennsylvania, USA, The following appeared in teh The Fulton County News: Mr. Wellesley H. Greathead and Miss Estelle Sipes, both of this place, were united in marriage December 13, 1913, by the Rev. Samuel M. Perry, a retired Presbyterian minister, in his home in Elkton, Md. Mr. Greathead is a well known business man, and Miss Sipes is a daughter of Attorney J. Nelson Sipes.

It was the intention of Mr. and Mrs. Greathead to keep their marriage a secret until Christmas 1913, because the bride was engaged at the time of her marriage in doing teacher's substitute work in the Rouzerville High School, for Miss. Goldie Mason, of this place, and she did not expect to remain in Rouzerville later than Christmas: But Miss Mason resigned at about that time and the substitute was persuaded by the directors to finish the term, which she did. The object, therefore, in keeping the wedding a secret was to save embarrassment between the directors, the High School principal, and Mrs. Greathead, because of the objection to the employment of married lady teachers.

On Tuesday of last week Mr. and Mrs. Greathead slipped off for a little trip to Philadelphia, returning on Friday, and announcing their marriage to their surprised friends.2,9,10 Wellesley was described on his WW1 registration card dated 8 September 1918.
