  • Reference: W999 ID067
  • Birth*: 11 September 1778; Maryland, USA2
  • (Bride) Marriage*: 5 June 1834; Morgan Co., Ohio, USA; Information on Caleb Wells At age 11 his family migrated, with him, to the Ohio Valley, (WV) where ''he settled on the hill back of Buffalo Creek'' about 4 miles from the mouth of the creek. In 1795 he inherited land from his father and he enlarged these holdings with purchases of land grants. About 1805 he sold out and moved to Morgan County, Ohio to a place south of McConnelsville near the Devil's Tea Table on the Muskingum River. After the death of Mary in 1832 he moved to a farm east of McConnelsville. Caleb was of the so called ''Big Wells'' line. They were of Welsh decent and so called to distinguish them from our English ancestry, called ''Little Wells''. The later were of average stature but the former averaged over 6 feet tall and 200 pounds in weight. The descendants of the ''Big Wells'' settled in the Ohio Valley from the panhandle to the Kentucky line. In 1845 Draper interviewed Caledb Wells, and left a report in his journal. At this time Caleb lived east of McConnelsville, Ohio on Meigs C'reek. He was the son of Benjamin Wells, and was born in Baltimore County, Maryland, August 6, 1771. Caleb knew Indian fighter Lewis Wetzel personally, and Draper entered the following in his journal: ''Once my informant, Caleb Wells, ran a foot race with Lewis Wetzel at Wellsburg. A hundred yards was measured off. Wetzel was to start with his rifle empty, load it as he ran and fire it off, all of which he accomplished; and beat Wells by three yards. ''Caleb Wells, a powerful man, six feet, four inches and eighth, and weighing over 212 pounds, and afterwards, at 50 years of age, reaching as high as 275 - now (at 74) only 175''. The following appears in a Morgan County History. ''Caleb Wells Sr. of Virginia, died about 1869. He had settled near the Devil's Tea Table (a large stone shaped like a table) as early as 1805. Later Caleb and three sons, William, Benjamin and Amon moved to Meigsville Twp''. [Source: ''The Wells Chronicles'' - Jan.-Mar. 1990, pg. 215] ; Groom=Caleb Wells1,2

    -Unknown - there is a gravestone in Long Reach Cem engraved "Child of Nicholas and Rachel Wells, died Aug 12 1862", with no first name or DOB. None of their known children died in 1862. Appears to be a son.
    -Unknown - 3 unidentified children, may be all sons. UNPROVED - see note

    note: Based on numbers for 1820/1830/1840 census, it appears there were 12 children counted in census, with at least 5 male, and 7 female. It appears all the males but Philip died before 1858 without heirs. Only Philip, Rachel and Delilih are specifically mentioned in Nicholas' 1858 will, but there is reference to "other daughters and descendents of deceased daughters", with no mention of other sons/descendents.
    It is of course possible that some of the children counted in these census records were nieces/nephews or other children they were raising.

    Nicholas left a will with three codicils. The will set aside land and road access for a graveyard, which is called "Long Reach Cemetery". He also freed his two slaves and their children, left them with some land and money. The 3rd codicil basically disinherited granddaughter Elizabeth Moore.

    From the Will of Charles Wells, father of Nicholas, dated Dec 13 1814:
    ..."Item 3. To my son Nicholas Wells, he being already provided for, it is my will that he have nothing more of my estate either real or personal except whatever after my decease my said wife may gratuously give him of the part intrusted to her disposal."

    From the Will of Elizabeth Wells, probated spring of 1845, mother of Nicholas:
    ..."3rd. I will and bequeath unto my son Nicholas Wells the Sum of Two Hundred and Fifty Dollars in addition to what he has already received."
