    Biography: ALBERT WELLS.
    He was both a Christian and a patriot. With a family to support and a farm to till, at the age of 39 years he felt it to be his duty to serve his country in the war. Being older than most of his comrades, they respected and honored him. They were quick to recognize his sterling worth as a man, his loyalty to duty as a soldier and his good work as a follower of Christ. His eminent fitness to minister to the sick was soon recognized and he was called to service in the hospital where he soothed many a dying pillow, received from them messages and tokens of love to sorrowing friends in the home land, while by his tender ministry he won back to health a discouraged, heartsick as well as body sick comrade. He took back to his family and friends the same honesty and uprightness with which he left them. Brownington did well in honoring him with all the offices within her gift. He lived and died in fellowship with the Baptist church. He was a kind and loving father and husband. His influence for good lives in his two surviving children, his four grandchildren and his four great-grandchildren, who are the children of Hattie Denison Leland. He wore the Grand Army button and his post paid him loving tribute at his funeral.
    Albert Wells, son of Samuel and Lydia (Bliss) Wells, was born in Enosburg, Vt., July 25th, 1823, died January 2nd, 1903, in Brownington, Vt. He married Aurelia Whitcomb, who died May 6th, 1897. Later he was married to her sister, Harriet (Whitcomb) Andrus, who still survives him. He had three children, two sons and one daughter. The youngest son, Franklin B. Wells, died December 30th, 1904. The eldest son, Edgar S. Wells, resides in Brownington, Vt. The daughter, Cynthia (Wells) Denison, resides in Barton Landing, Vt. Both are prosperous farmers.
    Albert Wells enlisted in Company G, 13th Vermont Volunteers from Enosburg. He was a farmer and his family were dependent upon him for support, but when the country called for nine months' men he responded and, bidding good-bye to family and friends, committing them into the hands of his Heavenly Father, went forth in defence of his country. Before he left his native town he engaged his shoe maker to make him a pair of boots, putting his name on them, but when he reached Virginia he found they hurt his feet and he threw them away. Imagine his surprise when, on his return to Brattleboro to be mustered out of service at the end of nine months, to find in the barracks just occupied by the 12th Regiment the identical boots that he had thrown away in Virginia. Soon after reaching Virginia his cousin, Joel Bliss, was taken sick and he was detailed to go into the hospital to care for him, which he faithfully did until Joel passed over the river, which was but a few days, but they saw fit to keep him in the hospital as a nurse, where he faithfully cared for the sick and dying. He formed many endearing ties of friendship while there and was wont to speak often of Doctor Nichols, whom he thought much of. After a time he was afflicted with a fever and while convalescent he was sent out to act as a guard for a private family, where he received very kind care and treatment.
    After he was mustered out of service he returned to Enosburg and resumed his former occupation. In the fall that the St. Albans raid took place, he, in company with his wife, met this band of robbers in Sheldon and one of the leaders inquired of him how far it was to the "border" and he replied, "You will find it quite a piece before you get there," and soon he picked up a revolver that they dropped in their hot haste. Next he met the pursuers and one without any arms so he loaned him the revolver. In the fall of 1865 he removed to Brownington, Orleans County, Vt., where he spent the remainder of his life. In 1876 he was elected by his townsmen to represent the town in the legislature and at different times occupied all of the responsible offices in town. Wherever his duty called him in life he faithfully did his work in an unselfish manner.

    Alfred Wells
    Agriculturist
    Prairie Township


    Alfred Wells is a well known and prosperous agriculturist of Prairie township, residing on section 26, where he has made his home continuously during the past forty seven years. He has devoted his attention to farming through out his entire business career and at one time owned fourteen hundred acres of valuable land, while his holdings at present embrace five hundred acres.

    His birth occurred in Vermont on the 14th of February, 1840, his parents being William and Abigail (Gay) Wells. The father, a native of Massachusetts, settled in Vermont at an early day, and in that state the mother passed away. William Wells subsequently came to Delaware county, Iowa, and here spent the remainder of his life, his demise occurring in 1900. To him and his wife were born three sons and three daughters, as follows: Ann, who is the wife of Wilder Heath, of Vermont; Alfred, of this review; Jane, who gave her hand in marriage to John Hillier, of Prairie township, this county; H. H., of Prairie township; Louis, who is a resident of Manchester; and Diantha, deceased.

    In 1867, when a young man of twenty seven years, Alfred Wells came to Delaware county, Iowa, settling on the farm where he now resides and which has been his home continuously to the present time. He has given his attention to the work of the fields throughout his entire business career and is an industrious, energetic and progressive agriculturist whose labors have been attended with gratifying and well merited success. At one time he owned fourteen hundred acres of rich and productive land and at present still has five hundred acres. In former years he shipped cattle on an extensive scale. In 1861 Mr. Wells enlisted in Company B, Eighth Vermont Infantry, for three years and at the expiration of that time reenlisted, serving until the close of the war, in 1865. He was wounded at the battle of Fort Hudson, Louisiana, June 14, 1863, and received seven slight flesh wounds, none of which proved serious. He has now passed the seventy fourth milestone on life's journey and can look back upon an active, useful and honorable career. The circle of his friends and acquaintances is very wide and all esteem him for his genuine personal worth and commendable qualities of character.
