Edward Swasey Wells

M, #6719, b. 23 March 1813, d. 16 May 1892
  • Reference: W004 ID010
  • Birth*: 23 March 1813; Newburyport, Essex Co., Massachusetts, USA
  • (Groom) Marriage*: 19 March 1837; Adams Co., Illinois, USA; Illinois State Marriage Index: 19 Mar 1837 ADAMS Co., IL: /
    ; Bride=Mary Babson Evans3
  • Death*: 16 May 1892; Quincy, Adams Co., Illinois, USA; "In the spring of 1835, Edward Wells formed a partnership in the cooper business with James D. Morgan, a friend who had followed him from Bosrton."

    [In Quincy Illinois...]

    "Edward Wells joined the volunteer fire department, which he served as Chief for one term."

    "On the nineteenth of March 1837 Edward Wells married Mary Babson Evans, daughter of Captain Robert Evans, who had emigrated from Boston in 1835."

    "Captain Evans [had] bought a farm near Bloomfield [Adams county Illinois], twelve miles from Quincy, but, discouraged by the loneliness of the place, which hourly increased the homesickness of his family, he decided to locate in Quincy. He remained in Bloomfield only one week, but in that short period, Edward Wells, hearing that a Massachusetts family had bought a farm on the prairie, rode out to call. It was on this visit that he first saw young Mary Evans."

    "Captain Evans bought a house on the corner of Eighth and Hampshire streets and moved into town; and there on the nineteenth of March 1837 Edward Wells and Mary Evans were married. It was previous to the organization of the Unitarian church, and the ceremony was performed by the Reverend Asa Turner, Congregational. The groom was twenty-four years old, and the bride, eighteen."

    [Regarding the later life of Edward Wells] "Well acquainted with Lincoln, Douglas, O. H. Browning, W. A. Richardson, Richard Yates, John A. Logan, General Sherman and many others of worldwide reputation, he had large influence in both state and national capitals."

    [He was] "Director of the First National Bank of Quincy for a long period." "He was a stockholder in the Quincy Gas Works, Newcomb Hotel, Quincy Savings Bank, Library Association; Director of the Vandiver Corn Planter company, and officially connected with many other business, improvement and charity organizations of the city."

    "On the sixteenth of May 1892 in the hour preceding the dawn Edward Wells suddenly passed away."


    - from "The Ancestry of Edward Wells of Quincy Illinois," by Lucy Woodwell. Published in Chicago in 1900 by Frank Wells.

    _____

    Additional: Edward Wells' last day on earth was spent on a Sunday, going to church, then, enjoying the day of rest with family and friends. He was laughing and jovial. Then, in the wee hours, he awoke from a sound sleep with heart pains; a doctor was summoned but he passed away soon afterward, in his home. His wife's death two years later in 1894 would echo his in these ways: She spent her last day, Easter Sunday, in church, then with family and died later (at 10 p.m.) the same evening.
