  • Death*: 24 August 1944
  • Burial*: 24 August 1944; Shrewsbury, Worcester Co., Massachusetts, USAG; Howard Alexander Wells was born in Derby, Northumberland, New Brunswick, Canada to Francis David "Frank" and Eliza (nee Hicky or Hickie) Walls. Family lore states that he came to Forest City, Maine and later North Jay, Maine. In North Jay Maine, Howard was an overseer in a stone quarry. Sometime during this period Howard changed the spelling of his last name from WALLS to WELLS. Howard's brother James also came to work at this stone quarry and therefore, James also used the spelling WELLS, which James' descendants continued to use as well.

    Howard married Justina Alice Sadler and had four children: Twins Walter Andrew and William Francis, Harold Howard, and Herbert Alexander. Three of the children continued the use of WELLS. Harold Howard, was the exception reverting back to the spelling of WALLS.

    Howard and Justina separated due to an infidelity on Howard's part. They eventually divorced and Howard married Luella M. Lounsbury on Dec 14, 1905 in Lewiston, Maine. Howard and Luella had one child, Norman Littlefield Wells born March 19, 1910.

    Howard worked as an electrian and lived in Tolland County, Connecticut, and Worcester County, Massachusetts.
