  • Note*: 1860; The 1860 Census records show an Andrew J. Wells living in house no. 250. He was reported to be 31 years old, a farmer, with a net worth of $2,000 and a personal worth of $534. His wife was reported as Sarah D. age 23. They had two children Monroe A. age 4 and Jenny, one year old. In the same census an Andrew J. Wells lived in House number 566. He was reported to be 31 years old, a farmer with a net worth of $117 and was illiterate. His wife was Sarah (Brickey?), 29 with son John 9, attending school, And three daughters Carrie, 7, Elihu 4 and Louisa J. one year old. (In my opinion this Andrew is the son of Jeremiah C Wells and Elizabeth Culbertson. (HCW 11.14.2007) ____________________ From: Ken Kristensen Subject: Re: Wells Family Sarah Williams wrote: My Grandmother was Charlotta (Lottie) Octavia Wells Williams (later Mabry) was born in Big Stone Gap, VA in 1882 and was the oldest daughter of Andrew Jackson Wells and Nancy Hart Wells. Andrew Jackson was the son of Jeremiah Wells and Elizabeth Culbertson and the Grandson of Zachariah Wells. Dear Sarah Williams and fellow researchers, I am from the following line: Harold Burdett Culbertson (who was a giant of a man) Son of Mary Elizabeth Wells (Mary was a substantial woman) & Frank Culbertson Mary Elizabeth Wells..dau. of Monroe Ashley Wells & Causbie Druzilla Harris. Monroe is the son of Andrew Jackson Wells & Sarah D. Brickey. Andrew is the son of Jeremiah Wells & Elizabeth Culbertson. I have lots of info on Monroe and Causbie (who went by Druzilla because Monroe did not like the name Causbie) to the present but not much more than names and dates in the other direction. Orin, thank you for posting the bit from the Opal Graber genealogy, I enjoyed it very much. Have you any other wonderful little histories you would be willing to share? K. Kristensen _______________________________ From: ''Orin R. Wells'' Subject: Andrew Jackson Wells Since two descendants of Andrew Jackson Wells have just joined the list, I thought it appropriate to post the following from a private genealogy done. by Opal Graber of Albany, Oregon: ''Not much of a personal nature is known about Andrew Jackson ''Jack'' Wells, other than he was a large man, 6 feet 4 or 5 inches tall with very long arms that reached below his coat tails. When he came to the farm on Wallens Ridge isn't known, if he first developed the land or if he inherited it from his father. It is known he and Monroe farmed it together after Monroe grew up and married. ''After he left Nancy, who had been mistreating him as he grew elderly, and went to live with Monroe and his family, his grandson, Robert, remembers Jack sitting in the yard under a tree cracking hickory nuts. The nuts were used for baking and the extra were sold for a little income. ''One Sunday as the family was trudging up the mountain from Oreton where they had attended Baptist Church, Monroe heard a feeble cry for help from the bushes along the road. he investigated and found Jack standing in a little creek, surrounded by a rapidly spreading fire. Monroe put out the fire and carried Jack to the road. Jack was freightened and confused and could never tell how the fire started. It was always a mystery. After that Jack made his home with Monroe and Durzilla. ''Jack's sight was very poor in his old age and (he) was nearly blind wh'en he died. He was buried on his home farm near the road leading down the ridge to Oreton. No headstone was ever erected over the grave and the site is now lost. Druzilla showed her youngest son, Jeremiah, where the grave was but he no longer remembers the exact location. ''Jack and Nancy lived on the section of the farm known as ''Little Cuba''. I don't know if that is where he and Sarah lived or not. Ther is no longer a house on any of the land, though the spring still flows where water was available for the family's use.'' COMMENT: I had not really read this previously so I was not aware of the large stature of Andrew Jackson Wells. Since we are still stuck on the origins of Zachariah, I can't help wondering if there might be a connection to the ''Big Wells'' who were also typically well over 6 feet tall and often heavyset. The few photos I have seen of the family did not lead me to suspect this previously. Does anyone else have any early family information that would indicate that they were large people? Could it be that Zachariah actually was from Maryland or Virginia and someone inadvertantly connected him to the wrong family (i.e. the bogus connection to Richard Wells & Ann ''Nancy'' Brown)? Orin R. Wells Howard Wells posted 2.12.2007 In the 1850 Census of Lee County A. Jackson 22, was living with his mother Elizabeth Wells age 58 and his siblings Agnes 18, Elizaeth 16, Jonathan Brickey 14, Sarah 8 and Finetta 6.5,1

Tazewell's first wife's last name was Fugate. The age indicates Fugate to have been born in 1886. That matches up with the birth date of Creed F. shown in the 1910 census. In the 1920 Census of Gladeville, Wise Co., VA it lists Tazwell G. Wells and Martha L. Wells as being 74 years old. No one is living with them. Mormon Church records show Tazewell Gallington Wells to have been born September 1, 1845 in Lee County, VA and to have died January 16, 1929. No place of death was shown. In a story about the construction of a jail in Lee County about his father, James Wells, it stated that Tazewell became a judge. Tazewell formed a law partnership known as Wells & Bruce. A book called the Narative History of Wise County Virginia by Charles A. Johnson printed by the Overmountain Press, Johnson City Tennessee and reviewed by Howard Wells about October 6, 2004 that was found in the C. Bascom Slemp Memorial Library Big Stone Gap, Virginia had the following notes. First Courthouse; Demands For Roads. (Page 33) James F.
