    Three Pioneer Histories from
    the FIRELANDS PIONEER("F.P."):
    MEMOIRS OF TOWNSHIPS.- VERMILLION.
    by Wm. H. Crane; from F.P., Nov. 1858.
    VERMILLION - S. E. QUARTER.
    by Benj. Summers; from F.P., Nov. 1858.
    EARLY TIMES AND INCIDENTS IN VERMILLION.
    by Benj. Summers.; from F.P., June, 1863.

    Robert Wells, father of Philo, was too
    old to labor, when he came with his sons.
    He was known as a pious and good man.
    Charles, his son, married a Miss Durand,
    removed first to Lorain county, and then
    to Illinois. Lemuel went east, and was a
    long time Consul at the Island of St. Cath-
    erines, South America.

    This also indicates the number of people
    subject to taxation and their personal property
    - as 5 cents here represent one head of cattle,
    and 20 cents a horse. Meagre as it appears, it
    was as difficult for them to pay it, and much
    more so, than for us to pay what we do at this
    day.

    In November, 1817, Mark Summers, also
    from Newtown, bought Winton's right, and
    moved his family in with Winton's. At the
    same time Philo Wells, from Dutchess Co.,
    N. Y., took up temporary quarters at Austin's
    shanty, and soon after built on lot No.
    nine, 1st section of Vermillion, about one-
    half a mile east of his present residence.
    Deacon Beardsley, about same time, built
    on lot five, 2d section, near where his son
    Clement now resides.
    Winton, during the Winter of 1817-18,
    built and removed to the block house on
    lot number three. In 1817, Joel Crane,
    Esq., and Capt. Luther Harris settled just
    over the line in Florence, on lots 41 and
    51, and Dr. A. H. Betts and Levi Jackson
    a little further south. And Robert W.
    Betts located a half a mile south of Wells.
    In the spring of 1818 Ziba Harris set-
    tled one half a mile east of Wells, and
    Robert Wells, father of Philo, with his
    younger sons, Charles and Lemuel, settled
    near Mr. Betts.

    In the spring of 1818 Ziba Harris settled one half a mile east of Wells, and
    Robert Wells, father of Philo, with his younger sons, Charles and Lemuel, settled
    near Mr. Betts.

    Samuel Sanders had settled near where Sugar creek crosses the
    North Ridge, as early as 1815, or 1816, and Benjamin Demund a little farther west,
    on the same ridge. John Bartow and family, son of Jonah, and Leonard Norton, his son-in-law, came in in 1818, and settled near tile old gentleman. In the summer of 1819, Amason Washburn settled on S. E. corner of Lot six, 2d section, where he still resides. Jesse Ball settled on the farm he now occupies, lot three, 2d section, about the same time.

    Philo Wells, Esq., was from Dutchess county, New York, originally, with his
    wife, Hannah Lewis, from Connecticut. He had little to begin with but a good
    trade, (blacksmith,) good health, iron constitution, and indomitable energy, industry
    and perseverance. He united blacksmithing and farming, and soon after tavern keeping, and soon was a go-a-head citizen, and exercised much in-
    fluence. He succeeded Winton in the justiceship for six years, and has become comparatively wealthy. Large quantities of bog iron ore have been taken from the
    farm he first "took up," which has added materially to his means.
    His wife died in 1848, and he married for his second, Mrs. Smith, of Connecticut.
    He had issue: George, Lewis, Wheeler, Eliza and Emeline. George and Wheeler
    became residents of Illinois, and merchants; are married and have issue. Lewis is an enterprising citizen, unmarried. Eliza marned Thomas B. Abel, and died in 1849,
    without issue. Emeline died young

    MEMOIRS OF TOWNSHIPS.- VERMILLION by Wm. H. Crane; from F.P., Nov. 1858.
    VERMILLION - S. E. QUARTER. by Benj. Summers; from F.P., Nov. 1858.
    EARLY TIMES AND INCIDENTS IN VERMILLION. by Benj. Summers.; from F.P., June, 1863.

    In November, 1817, Mark Summers, also from Newtown, bought Winton's right, and moved his family in with Winton's. At the same time Philo Wells, from Dutchess Co., N. Y., took up temporary quarters at Austin's shanty, and soon after built on lot No. nine, 1st section of Vermillion, about one-half a mile east of his present residence.

    Deacon Beardsley, about same time, built on lot five, 2d section, near where his son Clement now resides. Winton, during the Winter of 1817-18, built and removed to the block house on lot number three. In 1817, Joel Crane, Esq., and Capt. Luther Harris settled just over the line in Florence, on lots 41 and
    51, and Dr. A. H. Betts and Levi Jackson a little further south. And Robert W.
    Betts located a half a mile south of Wells.

    In the spring of 1818 Ziba Harris settled one half a mile east of Wells, and
    Robert Wells, father of Philo, with his younger sons, Charles and Lemuel, settled
    near Mr. Betts.

    Samuel Sanders had settled near where Sugar creek crosses the
    North Ridge, as early as 1815, or 1816, and Benjamin Demund a little farther west,
    on the same ridge. John Bartow and family, son of Jonah, and Leonard Norton, his son-in-law, came in in 1818, and settled near tile old gentleman. In the summer of 1819, Amason Washburn settled on S. E. corner of Lot six, 2d section, where he still resides. Jesse Ball settled on the farm he now occupies, lot three, 2d section, about the same time.

    Philo Wells, Esq., was from Dutchess county, New York, originally, with his
    wife, Hannah Lewis, from Connecticut. He had little to begin with but a good
    trade, (blacksmith,) good health, iron constitution, and indomitable energy, industry
    and perseverance. He united blacksmithing and farming, and soon after tavern keeping, and soon was a go-a-head citizen, and exercised much in-
    fluence. He succeeded Winton in the justiceship for six years, and has become comparatively wealthy. Large quantities of bog iron ore have been taken from the
    farm he first "took up," which has added materially to his means.
    His wife died in 1848, and he married for his second, Mrs. Smith, of Connecticut.
    He had issue: George, Lewis, Wheeler, Eliza and Emeline. George and Wheeler
    became residents of Illinois, and merchants; are married and have issue. Lewis is an enterprising citizen, unmarried. Eliza marned Thomas B. Abel, and died in 1849,
    without issue. Emeline died young

M, #19912, b. 22 February 1823, d. 20 March 1905
  • Reference: W015
  • Name Variation: Ranslaer Wells7
  • Relocated*: circa 1834; from Ohio to, Schuyler Co., Illinois, USA
  • Note: Lived on a farm in a house which he had built not too long after marriage for $3500. (Effie Danner Galbraith remembered her family living with him after Rebecca died, had white hair and beard). House was still standing and looking good in 1977. Both were buried in Bethany Cemetery. Their family bible has the names Ransler and Rebecca printed in gold on the front. That would seem to be the correct spelling of his name, but the Connecticut records say Ransaler Wells.; Principal=Rebecca Jane Rose4

Rebecca Jane Rose1,2

F, #19913, b. 28 August 1826, d. 28 March 1896
  • Reference: W015 ID999
  • Married Name: 2 November 1845; Mrs. Wells (Rose)
  • Note: Lived on a farm in a house which he had built not too long after marriage for $3500. (Effie Danner Galbraith remembered her family living with him after Rebecca died, had white hair and beard). House was still standing and looking good in 1977. Both were buried in Bethany Cemetery. Their family bible has the names Ransler and Rebecca printed in gold on the front. That would seem to be the correct spelling of his name, but the Connecticut records say Ransaler Wells.; Principal=Rensselaer Wells3
