    letter belowto Miss Lucy Reeves, Leicester, SC
    [dated March 20, 1931] from Thomas C. Wells, Canton, NC
    [Haywood Co.] My dear Miss Reeves,Your letter of recent date
    addressed to my nephew Ed Wells, has been handed to me for
    answer, as I am the oldest Wells (nearly 78) living in Haywood
    County.I will start with Wells history with my grandfather,
    Newnam Wells, who was born in Chester County, S.C. on Oct. 29,
    1770. He married Rebecca Edwards Feb.11, 1794.To this union
    were born 9 children. Six sons - Thomas, William, James,
    Andrew, Joseph, and John. Andrew, my father, and Joseph were
    twins born March 27, 1804. Daughters were Nancy, Lucretia, and
    Elizabeth.My grandfather Newnam Wells migrated from his place
    of birth to Rutherford County, N.C. about the year 1805, and
    settled on Broad River in that county, where my grandmother
    died, Sept. 10, 1811. Then, Grandfather with all his children,
    except Nancy who was married in Rutherford County, came on to
    Pigeon Valley in Haywood County in 1818. Here he bought 640
    acres (a full section) of land. This old farm is known far and
    wide as the Wells Farm and if all together as it once was would
    be the finest and most valuable farm in Western N.C. It
    contains 175 acres river bottom and happily I own a small part
    of it; and I am the only living 'child' of my grandparents in
    Haywood County. Now I will tell you something of Grandfather's
    family. Uncle Thomas and Uncle Joseph settled in what is now
    Rockdale County, Georgia, and raised families there. Uncle
    William, who was a doctor, settled in Sumpter Co., Fla., and
    raised his family there. Uncle James settled near Eddyville,
    Kentucky, and raised his family there. Uncle John, who was both
    lawyer and civil engineer, settled in Texas and raised his
    family there. Andrew, my father, lived his life here. Two of my
    aunts, Lucretia and Elizabeth, married and raised large
    families here, all of whom are dead. Now, going back to the
    starting point again: my grandfather had a brother Henry, whom
    I am sure was the head of the Buncombe County Wells family. As
    I remember, he had four sons - Frank (a preacher), and Jack,
    Newnam and Robert - some one of these I feel sure was your
    ancestor. I think I know where I can get more of the history
    and genealogy of the Wells family, and if it is what I am
    looking for, I will let you know and then invite you to come up
    and spend a day or two with us. Then if you are not married and
    in the market for a husband, I might be able to help you land
    one.Yours very truly, Thomas C. Wells. Notice in the above
    letter that Newnam is never referred to as Newman Wright Wells.
    Notice further that if one substitutes the name John for 'Uncle
    Henry' the named sons in the second to last paragraph match
    those claimed for John Wells of Delaware, son of James Wells of
    DE and Surry Co. Finally, in the 1880 census Andrew Wells
    confirms his father's POB as Delaware, not SC. Research of
    Jewell Blankenship 'Nunam Wells and Rebecca Edwards married and
    lived in Rowan Co. for a while after their marriage. Their 1st
    son Thomas was born in Rowan Co. and the next two probably
    were. In 1799 Nunam bought land in Chester, S.C. and lived
    there for a while. Their children starting with Nancy through
    Andrew were born in S.C. Sometime after 1804 the family moved
    back to Rutherford Co. William and John A. Wells were born
    there. Rebecca E. Wells died there in 1811 not quite a year
    after her last child was born. Then, as you know, Nunam
    remarried and about 1820 moved with his 2nd wife and children ,
    with the exception of Nancy, to Haywood Co. There both Nunam
    and his 2nd wife Mary Martin died and both are buried in Bethel
    Cemetery Haywood Co. In all of the old family records, official
    land records, (both Chester Co., S.C. & the N.C.records),
    division of property at death of Nunam, Will of James Wells,
    there is never a middle name of Wright or even an initial
    mentioned for Nunam Wells. 1808 Jones, John / Wells, Newman /

    consistent with the ages given in family history. Note here
