  • Birth*: 4 November 1807; Hinesburgh, Chittenden Co., Vermont, USA; From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Horatio Nelson Wells (Nov. 4, 1807–1858) was an American lawyer and Wisconsin politician. He was a member of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

    Wells was born in Hinesburg, Vermont, and studied law in Burlington, Vermont. After practicing law in the East for several years, he moved to Wisconsin in 1836, practicing law in Milwaukee from 1837 to 1847.

    Wells was served as a member of the lower house of the Legislative Assembly of the Wisconsin Territory from 1839 to 1840, as Attorney General for the Territory of Wisconsin from 1839 to 1841.

    After a short break from elected office, Wells served as a member of the upper house of the Legislative Assembly from 1847 to 1848, where he was also selected as President of the Council. Wells also served a short stint as mayor of Milwaukee from 1847 to 1848. Several years later, he served as Milwaukee County Judge from 1850 to 1854.

    Wells also ran the Milwaukee Sentinel for a short time in 1841.

    "Horatio N Wells
    This gentleman came from Vermont, in 1836. As a lawyer, he was both prominent and successful; was of quick and nervous temperment; a ready speaker; in political faith, an uncomprimising Democrat, and took a deep interest in political affairs; was once Mayor; was also in the State Legislature, where he at once became a leader. His last office was that of County Judge.
    Mr. Wells was a warm friend; a bitter enemy; made no concealment of his political views oropinions; was strictly honest, and generous to a fault; he knew not the value of money, but spent it freely; was at one time quite wealthy, but at his death was quite poor. he died August 19, 1858."1

    Wells, Horatio Nelson 1808 - 1858
    Definition: lawyer, politician, b. Hinesburg, Vt. He studied law in Burlington, Vt., was admitted to the bar, and practiced in the East for several years. In 1836 he moved to Wisconsin, settling in Milwaukee, where he set up a law practice in 1837. He practiced with Hans Crocker (q.v.) and Asahel Finch, Jr. (q.v.) (1837-1841), and continued the partnership with Finch from 1841 until Wells withdrew from active practice in 1847. A Democrat, Wells was a prominent figure in early Milwaukee and territorial politics. He held local offices in Milwaukee, was territorial attorney general (1839-1841), a member of the lower house of the territorial legislature (1839-1840), and of the upper house (1847-1848). Wells was mayor of Milwaukee (1847-1848), and from 1850 to 1854 served as judge of Milwaukee County. In Aug., 1841, through foreclosure of a chattel mortgage, Wells gained control of the Milwaukee Sentinel from Harrison Reed (q.v.), conducted it for three months as a Democratic campaign organ, but, following the election, allowed Reed to resume possession. After retiring from active political affairs about 1854, Wells made his home in Milwaukee until his death. J. R. Berryman, ed., Bench and Bar of Wis. (2 vols., Chicago, 1898); M. M.
