Wells Cemetery or Wells-Adkins Cemetery
Posted by: Kathryn Dugan (ID *****3022) Date: June 12, 2008 at 19:01:08

I am looking for information on a Wells Cemetery or a Wells-Adkins Cemetery in Elliott Co., KY.

Specifically I am trying to find burials for Richard F. Wells (1822-1912), his 1st wife, Emily R. Cox (1828-1869/70), their son, Richard J. Wells (1869/70 born and died), 2nd wife, Nancy Emeline Henry (married 1871, Morgan Co.)(died before 1875), and 3rd wife, Ellen H. Smith Adkins (widow of Harvey Adkins) (1831-1908).

Emily Cox Wells was the daughter of William Cox and Cynthia Reid and granddaughter of John Cox and Judith Sexton of Wolfe Co., KY.

In the 1870 census, Emily Cox Wells is not shown but Richard J. Wells is listed as born in January and he is 5 months old. The census was taken in June of 1870. I find it hard to believe that he would be listed with his father, Richard F. Wells, and several siblings in 1870 had he died in 1869.

If anyone knows of this Cox/Wells clan, please contact me.
