She left a few weeks since to make her closing earthly sojourn with her daughter, Mrs. Richard Jeffrey, in Norwalk, Ohio.

    Background: Col. William Stephens Smith fought in the Revolutionary War alongside generals Washington and Lafayette and served as aid to Baron von Steuben. After the war Smith served as a diplomatic representative in London (1784). Here he met and courted Abigail Adams (daughter of President John Adams and Abigail Smith Adams). The two were wed in London in 1786. They had four children: William Steuben (birth 1787 death 1850), John Adams (birth 1788 death 1834), Thomas Hollis (birth 1790 death 1791), and Caroline Amelia (birth 1788 death 1852). In 1788 the Smiths returned to America and settled near New York City. Col. Smith was appointed by President Washington as the first U.S. Marshal for the NY district (1789). Smith later was appointed to the position of surveyor for the Port of NY by President John Adams (1780).

    Fortune
    Smith sought his fortune as a land speculator and was granted a patent in 1794 for Townships 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 of the Chenango Twenty Towns - a total of 150,000 acres at a cost of 24,375 pounds sterling. Lots 2, 3, 4, and 5 are present day Eaton, Madison, Lebanon, and Hamilton respectively. Lots 8 and 9 are Smyrna and Sherburne respectively in Chenango County. In the late 18th century all of this land was wilderness. Some time after 1794 Smith either sold or turned over lots 2, 3, 4, and 5 to Sir William Pultney. Smith retained lots 8 and 9 in Chenango county and a large tract of land bordering the Chenango River in Madison County. Col. Smith's brother, Justus B. Smith, was assigned the task of subdividing and selling lots from this tract. Justus built a large house in Smith's Valley from where he conducted the land sales business. Col. Smith had a small frame house located near here which he occupied infrequently. Both Col. Smith and Justus B. died in Smith's Valley in the year 1816 and are buried in West Hill Cemetery, Sherburne.

That he was drafted at Hamilton in the County of Madison in the State of New York on or about 25th day of March A.D. 1812 for the term of three months and continued in actual service in actual service for about three and one-half months, and was honorably discharged at Oswego in the State of New York on about the tenth day of July A.D. 1812 or some time in the month of July of that year on account of of expiration of his term of service, as will appear by the muster rolls of said company that he had a writen discharge, and filed it away with some old papers but thinking it was of no use to him, he neglected it and the same became lost and destroyed and the same is not now in existence.

    Got your request here re the Wells family. So you have them on the 1930 US Census in Travis County as the last record? No other place afterwards? Jean

    I have found in the Austin City Directory for years 1930-31 a listing for Justus E. Wells and Wife, Maude E. living at 2201 1/2 Dam Blvd.. He is listed as a caretaker for the AM Legion Clubrooms.
    (pg. 538 of City Directory). Do you need a copy of this page? 1932-33 Austin Directory has Justus and wife, Maud at same address in 1930-31 and there are listings for Melville C and Louis E. at same address as Justus.

    In 1935 Directory Justus and Maude are listed at 44 1/2 street and he is working for the dairy.
    Louis and Melville are at same address. (Pg. 567)

    Justice E. and Maude E. Wells listed on pg. 683 in 1937 Austin Directory and living now at 1711 Willow Street and he is a dairyman. Lewis resides at his parent's address.
    Melville C. Wells and wife, June reside at 2104 E. 19th Street, Austin and he is listed as a attendant at Simon Service Station.
