    I have a Redmond Wells (in my husband's family) as being one of the legal heirs of Joel Wells from Columbus County, North Carolina. Would your Wells come from Columbus County? This is found in the Columbus County, NC, Abstracts of Deeds 1846-1850. John Wells, Francis (Fanny) Wells, and a William Hooks are listed as being legal heirs of Joel Wells.

    My husband's grandfather is Joel Stephen Wells born 15 Aug. 1881 and died 22 Dec. 1928

    I also think that a Stephen Wells is also connected with our family.
