Hartwell Wells is one of my brick walls. I've tried to contact Wells researchers that might be connected but haven't heard back from any of them. Here's the story:

I'm trying to separate a group of nine children who have been assigned to three different men depending on the researcher in question. The men--all of whom are supposed to have migrated from VA (including Henry County) to Williamson Co, VA--are Hartwell R. Wells, Thomas H. Wells, and Reuben Wells.

(1) Four of the children can be documented (census records) to be the children of Hartwell R. Wells: Henderson, Media/Melico A., Lawrence, and Martha.

(2) I have not been able to document the relationship of four of the children to anyone: Thomas H., Garrett P., James H., and John C.

(3) I believe the ninth child in question--Reuben M. Wells--is probably a son of Reuben Wells based on migration and residence. Three of Reuben Wells daughters can be documented: Lucinda G., Dolly A., and Eliza Ann. He had several other children, but the ages in the census records do not match the boys in (2) above.

If anyone can help, I would much appreciated it.

Thanks. Sylvia
