Lemuel Mc Mechen Wells1,2

M, #38977, b. 10 June 1807, d. 8 May 1892
  • Reference: W009 ID067
  • Birth: 10 June 1807; Wells Bottom, Marshall Co., Virginia, USA2
  • Birth*: 10 June 1807; Wells Bottom, New Martinsville, Wetzel Co., West Virginia, USA1,2
  • (Groom) Marriage*: 30 July 1830; prob., Virginia, USA; Bride=Elizabeth Ann Harkness Mc Mahon2
  • (Groom) Marriage*: 1 January 1854; prob., Pike Co., Missouri, USA; Bride=Elizabeth J Thornley1,2
  • (Groom) Marriage*: December 1872; prob., Pike Co., Missouri, USA; Bride=Catherine W Logan1,2
  • (Deceased) Death*: 8 May 1892; Ashley, Pike Co., Missouri, USA; LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF LEMUEL M. WELLS This the last will and testament of me, Lemuel M. Wells, of the town of Ashley, County of Pike, and State of Missouri. I give to my wife the homestead, containing eighty five acres. (85) Sub-division one, Survey 1714, Twp Fifty two. (52) Range three (3) West. to have and hold during the term of her natural life and at her death it is to be divided equally between my son Job T. Wells, or his heirs, and Emma J. Wells or her heirs. I give all my Lemuel, was born June 10, 1807 in Bottom, WV. Married January 1, 1854. He dealt in land warrants and laid them on the public domain, which comprised a large portion of the prairie country, Pike county, and added a still larger area of prairie land in Hartford Twp, being perhaps the largest single owner of real estate in Pike county prior to the Civil War. He was the owner of slave labor and drew his revenues from field and meadow. He lead the advance for making provisions for the higher education of youth in the establishment of a college in the midst of the Ashley community, and favored the plan to inaugurate the career of Watson Seminary an educational institution, making a liberal contribution of money and a site for that purpose, in addition to giving his personal effort towards that end, and can, therefore, be mentioned as a prime personal factor in the creation of this historic institution. His belief in the system of slave labor and the profit which accrued to his household by reason of ownership of such chattels arrayed him against the government in its efforts to restore order and put down the rebellion of 1861. He did not get into the conflict of arms, but came into conflict with the strong arm of government by reason of his seditious sentiment and of his irrepressible Confederate spirit. He was placed under arrest on seven different occasions and was imprisoned and order to be executed twice during the war. He was arrested, among other Confederate sympathizers, for a crime committed near Macon, Missouri, which caused the death of one person, and he was one of sixty drawn to be shot. Of the sixty, thirty were chosen, of which he was one, and out of this number, twelve men were drawn who were decreed to pay the penalty, but his name did not come out of the box as one of the twelve, and he was subsequently released. Upon another occasion he was the victim of Federal displeasure, as a prisoner in Gratiot street prison in St. Louis. His importance as a leader among the promoters of rebellious sentiment was recognized by the government and his removal summarily was decided upon. News of this decision reached his wife and she started for Federal headquarters of the Federal military to plead his cause, and, if possible to save his The ''Big Wells'' Family (10-8 continued - Information about Lemuel M. Wells) life. Just the night before he was to have been shot she appeared at the famous old jail with a pardon for her husband, and restored him to his family. He died May 8,1882 in Ashly, MO. personal effects to my wife, my son Job T. and my daughter Emma J. subject to the following conditions and specifications: I give to my brother Dudley Wells One Hundred and Fifty Dollars more or less, the balance due on my note he holds against me. I give to Mrs. Mary Howe Two Hundred Dollars due her for services in raising my daughter Emma J. I give to the heir of Mrs. Lucy Wells One Dollar. I give to Lemuel Wright, my grandson and namesake, One Hundred Dollars to be paid to him when he is twenty one years of age. I give to each of the four daughters of Rachel Reid viz: Annie Wright, Nettie Copenhaver, Ophelia Parsons and Lillie Moore, the sum of Twenty Five Dollars and to her other heirs the sum of One Dollar and to George Johnston the sum of Twenty Five Dollars and to the other heirs of Mrs. Bettie Gillum One dollar. I will that T. J. Elmore's bill of lumber furnished and work done in building the sheep house be paid out of my personal effects. Also the Doctors' bills, the bill of D. M. Bowen, Noah Bells wages for the summer of seven months, at sixteen Dollars per month and my funeral expenses. I give to Mrs. Theodore Purse,, Mrs. John Wright, C. P. Wells & James Wells each the sum of One Dollar. And after paying the above specified sums the remainder to be divided among my wife, Job T. and Emma J. in the proportion of One Thousand Dollars to my wife, One Thousand Dollars to Emma J. and Eight Hundred Dollars to Job T. I request Louis Holiday to act as executor of this my last will and testament. Given under my hand and seal this 21st day of April 1892. L. M. Wells (Seal) Witness J.T. Keitherlin J.L.

I will that all other receipts and incomes arising from the settlement of my estate, to be divided equally between my son Job T. Wells and Emma J.
