Am I missing from your tree? Wells
Posted by: Rhonda L Hakim Date: August 16, 2000 at 23:48:10
  of 214

The info here is incomplete. They are my prior postings in other sections of GenWeb. I am desperate to find my fathers, Wilbert Wells's relatives. His Father was Melvin Wells. A lot of the Wells family did not know that Wilbert existed. I found one elderly woman in Oklahoma who was the wife of a janitor at my dad's elementary school. His name was Wells so I checked it out. Turns out he was my Dad's cousin. His name was Cecil Wells (he is deceased) but he and his wife new my dads sister Goldie and brothers William and Chester. They never knew my dad existed.
This all due to my Grandfathers second marriage to my Grandmother Cora England/Grant?
So please if you see Wilbert and think its not your line please see if any other names seem to fit your tree. Thank You.

I had more info., I sorta gave up but it has been eating me up since. I have to locate my book in which has more info but I cannot bear waiting to post. So I will be back with more.
My Fathers name is Wilber Ray Wells, born Mar. 29 1934, In Guthriue Ok. (Logan County) His father Melvin Wells who was born aprox. 1876 (?) in Wagner (?) Illinois. Melvin is burried in Logan County (Summit View Cemetary). There are unmarked graves along side him, probably relatives. Melvin died 2 weeks after my father was born. Melvin was married to Cora England who was born in Emory, Ok in 1907 (?) and died on a fruit/vegetable plantation in Arizona sometime between 1937-39 (?) We do not know where she was burried. Probably in Arizona. She was married to an Albert Neal (he born/died Merced Ca) Who abducted Wilbert (on day of Cora's funeral). During abduction Wilbert's name changed to Wilbur, Wilbir, William and Brown. Later Wilbert was abandoned at an orphanage in Merced and during the Christmas holiday was returned to his Grandmother of Guthrie, Ok, Miss. Florence Grant. Florence was mother of Cora England/Wells, Dorothy Wright and Eddie (female) McCandless all who resided in Guthrie Oklahoma. Melvin Wells had been married prior to Cora. He fathered 2 other children of his 1st wife. A son (name ?) and a daughter Goldie (poss. nickname) Wells. Wilbert Wells is still living, infact he is my father. We are trying to meet other relatives. Wilbert was living with his Aunt Dorothy ( I believe) and left at the age of 15 only returning after marrying my Mother Barbara Wells, accompanied with his 2 step children Anita Cook and Philip Cook, and his 2 natural children Ronald and myself (the youngest) Rhonda. I am told I was a baby at the time. Any info would Excite me beyond imagination. I am told I look a great deal like my Grandmother Cora England. I suppose this was what enticed me to delve into the unknown world of my ancestors/ relatives.
