    The on-line Illinois Marriage Index database has two marriage recordsfor Lydia Jane Wells: one to Robert E Page 7/9/1837 and to JohnHademan 7/15/1847 suggesting a data entry error or else two differentLydia Wells. Roy B Wells found both of these records In Ogle Co. sothese are not data entry errors. The Lydia Wells who married RobertE. Page is the daughter of Isaac Wells and therefore a sister of PeterWells. Reports of Robert E. Page's death confirm that George W. Wellswas a relative of the Page family. They were close neighbors in OgleCo. IL, and it is likely that that these families were well acquaintedin Delaware OH prior to moving to IL.; Bride=Lydia Jane Wells1,4,5,2
  • (Deceased) Death*: 18 August 1881; Ogle Co., Illinois, USAG; Cause of death was a shotgun wound in the chest which a coroner's juryadjudged to be suicide.

  • (Witness) Burial*: 18 August 1881; Rockvale Twp., Ogle Co., Illinois, USAG; Robert E. Page and his wife have a common cemetery marker. The southside reads ''Our Father | Robert E. Page | Died Aug 18 1881 | Aged68 Yrs 8 D's''.1,3,2

Roy wrote, ''In 1998 and again in August 2000, I could not find Isaac's marker. Some years back, some cattle got into the cemetery, and I imagine that they pushed the marker off the pedestal.'' Isaac's marker was ''...about five feet from ground level to the top.'' Jan VanBuskirk, Joyce Bruns, Shirley Hampton and I searched for it with out success in Oct. 2002. [ I thinkit might possibly be under a large pile of cut trees and brush on the south side of the central cleared area.]1,10,11,2

  • Occupation*: miller and millwright The following is from the biography of Luther Wells (a great grandson of James Wells Jr.) found in the Commemorative Biographical Record of Northeastern Pennsylvania: ''James Wells was born in 1750, on the Delaware river. By trade he wasa millwright, and in the days of the Revolution he owned and operateda mill in what is now Monroe county. With this mill he ground flour which he furnished to the Revolutionary army...Mr Wells remained atthe mill during the war, and was granted four sections of land near the present site of Stroudsburg. At the close of the war he located near the mouth of the Tunkhannock, and still later moved up to what isnow Clifford township following his occupation and supplying the needy pioneers with their meal and flour. About or prior to 1806 he ownedand occupied a farm of one houndred [sic] acres at Elkdale. His firstmill was destroyed by a freshet. His second he erected in 1807, inpartnership with Asahel Norton, near the present [1900] site ofMcAlla's. This, too, was carried away by a freshet, about 1813.Selling his farm, he removed about a mile above Clifford's corners.''Note: This account clearly relies on earlier histories of the region, especially Emily C. Blackman's 1873 History of Susquehanna County which reports that his house in Elkdale had ''...a sloping roof and well-guarded porch''. A briefer account is found in the 1887 Centennial History of Susquehanna County by Rhamanthus M. Stocker [online at http:/_____/dsdata.com.au/genealogy/nepa/] which further reportsthat ''...he sold his farm to Lemuel Norton and Horace Q. Phelps, and moved several miles down the East Branch to the flats, where is now the farm of James C. Decker. Here his wife died, in 1831.'' Also fromStocker's history, ''On the East Branch of the Tunkhannock, two miles northeast from Dundaff, was started the first business place in Clifford. As early as 1806 James Wells put up a small grist-mill was swept sway by a fre shet. The following year heand Ashel Norton united in building another mill, which was also carried away by a flood in the course of a few years. ...''1,4,9,10,2

Histories of Pike Co, PA and Milford, PA all say thatJames Wells Sr. and his two brothers came to the region from CT, but anumber of researchers think it is more likely that they were born onLong Island, NY and perhaps lived, for a time, in CT before migratingto the Minisink region.1,3,2

I don't know what evidence there is or if anyproof exists for either name, but the supposed surname, and otherWells connections to the Shrewsbury, NJ area, apparently lead to thepossiblity that she may have been the daughter of James Stout.(Marriage date ''before 1742'' is merely a guess on my part based on1742 birthdate for Phineas Wells.); Bride=Bethiah Stout?1,4,2
