    Bio of Georg Miles Wells, MD

    " ... Family settled in Virginia long prior to the Revolutionary War. In Virginia, Miles Wells, paternal grandfather of Dr. George Miles Wells, was born and reared. The family was then in affluent circumstances, and after reaching manhood, Miles Wells, removed to North Carolina, where he became a wealthy planter. Later he went to Mississippi where he held large landed interests. Miles was married twice, and reared a large family of children, all of whom are now deceased [1894]. His son, Francis Marion Wells, was born in North Carolina in 1824. he received a classical education, conduction his prelimary studies in his native State and afterward entered the Miami University at Oxford, OH fromw hich he was graduated in 1846. While attending college he met Mary Stewart, whom he afterward married. She was a native of Easton, Pennsylvania, and after their marriage in 1847, Mr Wells settled in South Easton, where he remarried several years. Removing to Louisiana, he became a planter, and followed that occupation until the breaking out of the civil war. Although greatly opposed to secession on principle, yet after Louisiana had passed the ordinance of secession he felt his allegiance was due to the State, and enlisted in the Confederate army. His death occurred in 1863, at the early age of thirty-nine, by drowning in the Bayou Macon, while attempting to ford that stream. He was a member of the Presbyterian church and by his marriage to Mary Stewart had a family of six children: John Stewart, Francis Marion, Anna Stewart, George Miles, Mabel and Edward Stewart."5

The family was then in affluent circumstances, and after reaching manhood, Miles Wells, removed to North Carolina, where he became a wealthy planter. Later he went to Mississippi where he held large landed interests. Miles was married twice, and reared a large family of children, all of whom are now deceased [1894].1,2
