Pvt. Lewis Wells Sr.

M, #63868, b. 22 June 1750, d. 12 August 1846
  • Reference: W011 ID095
  • Birth: 22 June 1750; now, Lunenberg Co., Virginia, USA
  • Birth: 22 June 1750; South Carolina, USA
  • Birth*: 22 June 1750; Richmond, Richmond Co., Virginia, USA1
  • (Groom) Marriage*: 1774; Edgefield Dist., Edgefield Co., South Carolina, USA; Bride=Elizabeth Bates1
  • Burial*: 12 August 1846; McElvain Cemetery, Du Quoin, Perry Co., Illinois, USA
  • Death*: 12 August 1846; Du Quoin, Perry Co., Illinois, USA; Most older biographies of Lewis Wells state that he was born in South Carolina. Evidence exists that Lewis was born in Virginia, the only child of Thomas and Susannah Cole Wells. On the 1880 US Census, his son, Giles gave his father's birthplace as Maryland, mother's as Virginia. Possibly these were reversed?

    At age three, Lewis' maternal grandfather, John Cole, deeded him land in Lunenburg Co., VA. After his father's death, his mother, Susannah, was remarried to William Gamblin and they moved, with Lewis, from Virginia, to Chatham Co., NC., Lewis later lived in Union Co., SC (where he married Elizabeth Bates), and in Greenville, Co., SC. In the 1790 and 1800 US Censuses in Greenville County, the family of William Gamblin, his step-father, was in close proximity.

    AMERICAN REVOLUTION: Lewis served in Colonel Brandon's South Carolina Militia Regiment after the fall of Charleston on May 12, 1780. Their most famous battle was The Battle of the Cowpens, 17 Jan 1781: Col. Andrew Pickens led a force of militia units under the command of Brig. Gen. Daniel Morgan and his Continentals at The Battle of Cowpens. Four militia battalions formed the first line and central core of the militia formation. The Fair Forest Regiment of Col. Thomas Brandon, along with Hayes' Little River Regiment, Thomas' Spartanburg Regiment, and Roebuck's Spartanburg Battalion met the initial onslaught of the British under the hated Banastre Tarleton.

    According to eyewitness accounts, Brandon's Fair Forest soldiers were the first ones to fire on the advancing British, and the only ones who had sufficient time to reload and to take a second shot. They then, according to plan, made a quick retreat behind Morgan's Continentals, drawing the British into their range. The militia regiments then reformed and rejoined the fight. Many accounts exist of Fair Forest soldiers wounded in hand-to-hand fighting. Local tradition says that Thomas Brandon set the example for his men by killing three British dragoons with his sword.

    The defeat of the British at Cowpens finally drove Cornwallis and his army out of the Carolinas.

    The movie, "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson is a fictionalized version of that battle.

    In 1786, Lewis received "6 Pounds, 17S/1D1/2 Sterling For Duty Done In Brandon's Regiment After The Fall Of Charleston And Anderson's Return.A.A.8351;X3181."

    Tradition has it that, in 1803, Lewis Wells, Thomas Taylor, the three Pyle brothers, Robert McElvain and possibly others came to Illinois to assess the land and the Indian situation. They returned to Christian County, Kentucky because of Indian hostility. In 1812, some of the group moved into Illinois with their families, settling first near a fort about four miles east of Carbondale, on Crab Orchard Creek, then, later in Perry Co. The 1812 date which is sometimes cited may be a little early for Wells. In 1817, Lewis and Elizabeth sold 514 acres of land in Christian County, Kentucky, part of which they had purchased from Abner Pyle in 1812. This might indicate that the Pyles moved first, and the Wells family followed a few years later.

    Lewis and Elizabeth were the parents of Lewis Jr., Thomas Bates, Susan, Elijah, Martha Ann (Williams), Sarah (Pyle), Kiziah (McElvain), Mary (Pyle), Elizabeth Bates (Winters), Joseph and Giles.

    Many of the burials in McElvain Cemetery are early pioneers of Perry County, and they include many descendants and in-laws of the Wells.

Elizabeth Bates1

F, #63869, b. 1750, d. 4 October 1846
  • Reference: W999 ID095
  • Birth*: 1750; Virginia, USA2
  • (Bride) Marriage*: 1774; Edgefield Dist., Edgefield Co., South Carolina, USA; Groom=Pvt. Lewis Wells Sr.1
  • Burial*: 4 October 1846; McElvain Cemetery, Du Quoin, Perry Co., Illinois, USA; Family legend has it that Elizabeth and her mother were kidnapped by Indians. The following early telling of the story was in a letter from Mary Williamson Bradley to Howard Kimmel. Mary was the daughter of Joan (Pyle) and Frederick Williamson, granddaughter of Jack and Sarah (Wells) Pyle, great-granddaughter of Lewis and Elizabeth (Bates) Wells.
    "...It must have been about the time of the Revolution that little Elizabeth Bates was stolen by the Indians. She was 12, the oldest of five children. Her parents had gone to a clear spot in the South Carolina wilderness where they had raised a crop. The group was preparing to return to the settlement, fearing an Indian attack. The father was helping the mother mount a horse when a war whoop broke the stillness.
    Mrs. Bates begged her husband and neighbor to run. the women and children were taken prisoners. In camp, in the evening, some of the tribe brought in scalps. Elizabeth knew by the color of the hair and the bloody clothes that her father and his helper had met their deaths.
    A little baby brother was born after that. then the Indians continued to retreat with their captives and in attempting to ford the swollen Roanoke River, the baby was drowned. The rest of the family were prisoners about a year.
    Finally the whites and Indians exchanged prisoners and the Bates family went back to the home settlement."
    Source: Perry Co., Illinois web-site

    Note: If Elizabeth was about twelve years old at the time of her capture by Indians, she was most likely taken about 1762. This coincides with the Cherokee War in South Carolina.
