I'm looking for James Monroe Wells parents. This is what I know and have online records for proof(accuracy?) James was born Sept 1854 according to the 1900 Census. He married Sarah Catherine Jones according to Familysearch. They married on 19 Oct 1884 in New Hanover,North Carolina. They had 5 children that I know of. Leroy Wells(1888-?) Margaret"Maggie"Wells(1891-1951) Wilbert Delmer Wells(1895-1969) Evelyn"Eva"Wells(1898-1973 my great grandmother) Edna Belle Wells(1901-1984) I would also like to know when James died. According to Sarah's death certificate she lived at 31 Charlotte Highway in Concord,North Carolina for 45 years. She died in 1950 so she moved there in 1905(give or take a year or two) According to the 1910 Census the Wells children are living with Sarah's mother Rebecca. I want to know where James was and if Sarah had a place to live why weren't the kids with her? Did Sarah and James divorce or did James die between 1900-1910? If anyone knows or can find out this information I would appreciate this. Thank you.
