  • Birth*: 6 April 1745; Baltimore Co., Maryland, USA; Information on Charles Wells Charles Wells (1745-1815) The first settler in the Sisterville area, he came there about 1802 from Maryland. In 1800 he had surveyed a 200 acre tract on the Ohio River at ''Long Reach'', a 20 mile stretch of the Ohio River near Sisterville. Around 1802, he took his family and possessions and floated down the Ohio River on a flatboat from Wellsburg, to land one mile below the present site of Sisterville. Wells represented northwestern Virginia in the State Legislature for eight years between 1789 and 1810. He told of many Indian raids in correspondence with the Governor of Virginia. Wells had established a horse mill at his new home, and rented rooms in his log house for a store and merchant's shop. Gradually, others arrived, and ''Wells Landing'' or ''Ziggletown'' as it was once called, became a small community. Wells owned the high bottom lands of Sisterville, as well as other lands up and down the river. In 1813 he acquired 400 acres of land on which Sisterville's central business area is located. Tyler County was organized in 1814 and the first county court was held at Wells' home in 1815. Twice married, Wells had ten children by his first wife, Mical Owings, (1745-1783), and at least nine by his second wife, Elizabeth Prather (1765-1845). The ninth child born to his second marriage was in 1797, was named Twenty Wells. [Source: The West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia - Volume 22 - pg. 4920-4921 found in the Deland Library, Deland, FL.] More information on Charles Wells and Sisterville, West Virginia In Tyler County, West Virginia the name of the town of Sisterville was derived from the fact that the land on which the little settlement stands was originally owned by two sisters. They were Delilah and Sarah Wells, daughters of Charles Wells. Charles Wells (1745-1815), who was twice married, was a native of Maryland. When he was twenty he married Rachel Owings, a Maryland girl, on December 20, 1764. In 1775, Charles and Rachel migrated to present day Brooke County, West Virginia. In the brief married life of the couple, Rachel presented her husband with 10 children. After her passing, Charles Wells married again. His second wife was Elizabeth Prather, whom Wells married on July 24, 1784. By Elizabeth, Wells had a dozen more children, making him a family of 22 sons and daughters. Sarah and Delilah were Charles Wells' 18th and 19th children. Sarah married John McCoy a year or two following her father's death in 1815 and Delilah married Robert Grier about the time her father passed away. The 20th child was named Thankful. His 21st was named Plenty. His last, the 22nd, was given the name of Betsy. Two of Charles Wells' grandsons were Barney and Ephraim Wells. For eight years, (four terms) during the period of 1789 to 1810, Charles Wells represented northwestern Virginia in the state's legislative halls. When Wells died he was laid to rest in the old cemetery on the southern approach to Sisterville. It was 150 years ago this year that he died. NOTE: Tyler County is one of West Virginia's oldest counties, having been formed on December 3, 1814, a hear before Wells death. The county was formed under an Act of the General Assembly of Virginia that chipped off part of Ohio County. On Groundhog Day, 1839, Sisterville was incorporated as a town. It is the only town in our 50 states that bears this name. [Source: - Genealogical Magazine of Maryland in 1965 and also on the internet - - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~genbel/wells/wellscharles.jpg] More information on Charles Wells Charles and his younger brother, Absalom, made an exploratory trip to Ohio County in Western Virginia prior to 1777 and returned home bent on moving there. In March of 1777 Charles purchased 1075 acres of land from George McColloch on a head branch of Buffalo Creek on the Virginia side of the state line. He returned home and sold hid Maryland property to his father and, with his wife and seven children, moved to their new home on the frontier. The ''Big Wells'' Family (12-1 Information about Charles Wells continued) A year after Michal died he married Elizabeth Prather. Her father had acquired much land on the Ohio River and became the proprietor of Charlestown, which was later named Wellsburg after his daughter's husband. Charles holdings increased to 5000 acres. He was elected to represent Ohio County in the Virginia General Assembly from 1792 to 1798. Charles moved from Charlestown, Brooke County, by flatboat, to a new home on ''Long Reach'' in Ohio County in 1805 or 1806. (That part of the county became Tyler County.) On December 27, 1816 the Virginia legislature passed an Act changing the name of Charlestown to Wellsburg. It was renamed in honor of Charles Wells who married Elizabeth Prather, the only daughter of Charles Prather. (Virginia already contained a city named Charleston.)

    A LONG LIFE
    Death of an Aged West Virginia Lady

    There recently died at her home near Sistersville, Tyler county, a lady who has lived under the administration of every President since Washington. This was Mrs. Sarah McCoy. The Sistersville Democrat says of her:

    She was born in Brooke county, W. Va., in 1793; she came to this place with her father's family of twenty-two children in 1806. She was the mother of eight children, six of whom are dead. She has been a widow since 1835. As a child she gathered wild flowers where the streets of the town now are. She attended school in the old house, the very site of which is gone--engulfed by the river. She saw the keel boats float down the river, then a narrow and deep stream. She has seen the flat boat superseded by the steamer, a magnificent floating palace. Again, she saw the steamer partially fall into disuse by the railroad. She has seen the log cabin with its puncheon floors replaced by elegant houses with carpeted floors and fine furniture. The linsey dress has given place to silks and satins, and the handkerchief tied over the head is replaced by the artistic hat or bonnet. She has lived under every President of the United States from George Washington to Grover Cleveland.

    Sistersville, she saw planted in the wilderness when she was a child, and hunted "ground berries" among the corn, where now stand substantial houses and handsome stores.
