    Wells Township, in which Mr. Wells was born, July 6, 1858, the son of Joseph and Jane Wells, was named for his family. His parents were early settlers, coming to Michigan by ox-cart from Pennsylvania in 1856. Mr. Wells was the first white child born in the township. On August 7, 1881 he was married to Alice Metcalf, who died February 26, 1943. Her death was the first in the family after 62 years of marriage. In 1896 Mr. Wells moved to Caro, which continued to be his home until after the death of his wife, when he lived with his daughters. He was a member of the Evangelical church.
    Surviving are five daughters, Mrs. Paul Abony, Mrs. George Ogger, of Detroit, Mrs. Alfred Legg of Milford, Mrs. W. J. Cross of Flint, Mrs. W. A. Johnson of Milan; a son, Harold Wells of Inkster; a brother, Sampy Wells of Wells; 23 grandchildren.
    NOTE: Date of marriage in obituary does not agree with other information I have. I have their date of marriage as Feburary 23, 1881 in Imlay City, Lapeer Co., Michigan.
