In Reply to: Ed and Mintie "Porter" Wells from KY by Dick Sliger of 657

Hi there,

It has been about 2 years since we posted our first query regarding Ed and Mintie "Porter" Wells on this forum. We have had no response to that posting, however, since then we have found the 1930 Census for these individuals,

Once again they were living in the Ripley Township of Rush County, Indiana ED70-9 Pg. 7B Incorporated Place CARTHAGE Town:

Wells, Ed-Head- 50 born in KY-Age at first Marriage 20
Wells, Minnie-wife 44 born in KY-Age at first Marriage 14
Wells, Mollie A. Dau -born in KY
Wells, Clyde V. Son 21-born in KY
Wells, Claude B. Son 14-born in KY
Wells, Carolen(Carl?) Son 12-born in KY
Wells, Della M. Dau 9-born in Ind
Wells, Grace I. Dau 6-born in Ind
Wells, B. Helen Dau 4yr 5mo -born in Ind
Wells, Chester F. Son 2yr 1mo -born in Ind

It would appear that Ed and Mintie moved from KY to IN between 1918 and 1921. In the 1930 census both Ed and Clyde were listed as Laborers in a Paper Mill.

Edís father, William R. Wells, was my 2nd great Grandfather.

Any help would be appreciated,

Dick Sliger
