Re: Wells Cemetery or Wells-Adkins Cemetery

In Reply to: Wells Cemetery or Wells-Adkins Cemetery by Kathryn Dugan of 288

I am descended from Richard Scott Wells and Emily R. Cox through their oldest daughter Jane Wells. I have been to the Wells-Adkins Cemetery in Elliott Co. and seen their graves. Jane is buried with her parents because she was never married but did have a daughter. I think she may have been mentally handicapped. She died at about 36. Her mother Emily Cox Wells died in 1869 and apparently people weren't watching her very well. She had a daughter Ollie Missouri Wells Porter Kitchen born in 1877. She died when Ollie was 6 years old. We can't figure out who the father was and where the name Porter came from. She eventually was living with the Kitchens and married their son, John Wesley Kitchen. These were my great grandparents. The dates I have for Richard Wells is born in February 1869 and died in July of the same year. I have Emily Cox Wells death date as August 25, 1869 and I did not find a conflict with this when I saw their grave markers. I do not remember if the son is buried there also but he probably is because Jane is buried there with her parents and I think Emily Adkins Wells is buried on the other side of Richard Scott Wells.
