Looking for information on James Wells, ancestors and descendents.
I show a Deed dated May 24, 1823 with Elizabeth Wells of Whitely Twp., Greene Co., PA, widow of James Wells, who died intestate leaving 11 children:
Jane, wife of Abraham Shriver,
Nancy, wife of Robert Bradford
Abraham b Dec 1795, married Elizabeth Hamilton, daughter of Archibald Hamilton of Whitely Twp, Greene Co., PA. They moved to Muskingum co., OH and had 8 children
William (married Nancy?)moved to Morgan Co., OH
John (married Elizabeth ?)
James (married Rhoda?)
Sarah (married Jesse Worley)
James' land was purchased June 1804 from George Lemley of Greene Co., PA and Catherine, his wife for $800 a tract of land called Lemley's Plain on the right hand fork of big Whitely Creek . . . containing 178 acres and 30 perches.
Around 1823 it is listed as adjoining lands owned by Joab Bailey, John Lemly, Aaron Haine and Daniel Fuller.
Please send me any information on these people or the land or let me know of some great sources.
