Notes for RICHARD BROWN WELLS:

He went to California when his brothers John and Alec did. He had a reasonable degree of success in mining and deposited a goodly sum in a San Francisco Bank. It failed and he lost, I think, $15,000. He kept on and invested his next earnings in land and cattle. He remained on his farm till he was too old to operate it. Then he went to Berkley and lived with his nephew, Isaac. He never married. Once the mine caved in and he suffered a broken jaw bone. He said if it had not been for the wife of his partner who cared for him, he would have starved to death.

He never married, and for 30 years lived with his brother, James W., after Jim's death, Robert went to live with his sister Phoebe. While the family lived in Randolph County, Mo., their Dr. was a Dr. Still, father of A. T. Still the man that invented the modern system of Osteopathy, if it can be called an invention.

Notes for ALEXANDER HOLMES WELLS:

He in company with his brothers John and Brown made the trip overland to California probably in 1849 or 50. But he went back to the old home neighborhood and took land in the north part of Schuyler, Co. Coatesville was taken from his farm. He returned from California on boat going down around Cape Horn and up to New York City rather than endure the trip across the plains again. On the way a man became ill; as his sickness advanced a whale began following the ship. The man died, but the captain hoped they could reach a port they hoped to make in two or three days. But the whale approached nearer and began thrashing the water with its tail (of course, they didn't have the undertaking facilities we have in 1953). The captain said he would not risk the life of his passengers in such a small ship, against the anger of such a large whale. They dressed the man for burial, roped it to a wide plank, held religious rites and slid the body over the side. The whale no longer followed. He was married before that trip.

Side note: I have a copy of the jurnal from this trip. A very remarkable treasure that we found on (of all places) Ebay.

Notes for JAMES WASHINGTON ANDERSON:

She married James Washington Anderson, a childhood friend and schoolmate. Thought they had lived in Iowa when they married they settled in Pike County, Illinois and all of their children were born there not far from Pleasant Hill. James died Apr. 14, 1881; both buried at Wells Cemetery.

Before closing I want to pay a tribute to my Uncle James W. Wells, who gave a home to his niece Ellen before she married and also to my sister Mollie and me after we were left orphans. He and his three children treated us as members of the family. Besides giving a home to us, and his brother Bob, he brought from Texas a mulatto boy, Frank, who followed him and his herd of ponies, three days before he overtook them. Frank said, "I've watched you and listened to you talk there in Austin. I like you and want to go home with you and live."

It was a strange situation but finally Uncle Jim let him come. He became an honorable man and lived there till James Wells died. I could go on indefinitely but with a tribute to Aunt Phoebe Mason who took Bonnie and Jimmy into her home and to our Cousin Julia Trimble where Ruth lived this must come to a close. No, not yet!

Among the scores and hundreds of Wells relatives there was one of Col. James Wells' nephews in Pike County, Illinois, named Perry Wells whose kindness, and sympathy and generosity to friends and relatives in trouble could not be surpassed.

She married CHARLES MARION SKINNER 12 Nov 1865 in Putnam Co., MO3, son of ELISHA SKINNER and ABIGAIL PECKHAM. He was born 31 Jul 1842 in Jefferson Co., IA, and died 15 Sep 1914 in Cassville, MO.

Notes for CHARLES MARION SKINNER:

Charles has been a hard person to piece together. Here it is; he was born in IA where he grew up and joined the Union army at the age of about 17 on Sep 1861. He was discharged on Aug of 1865 after being shot in action. He then went back home where he married a young lady named Luzetta. She is a part of a very well known family dating all the way back to the founders of Maryland. They were married in possibly Putnam Co, MO just south of the IA boarder. They had four children (two died as infants) then moved to Kansas, possibly for a job. There they had at least three more children, then moved to Bonville, MO, in Pulaski County. He purchased some land from the United States which I have a copy of the document signed by President Theodore Roosevelt. We found both Charles and Luzetta in a 1910 census still in Pulaski County. They were 67 and 64 years old. Charles was accidently shot in the left hand during Cival War on July 18th 1864 in Marietta Georgia.
