    Son of Charles Wells and Elizabeth Prather

    -Phillip Witten 1823-1895
    -Sarah Delilah 1826-1902 m: Archibald Thistle in 1865
    -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."
