From Maryland Historical Magazine, vol. XVI, Baltimore, 1921, p. 238:

"Between various fords on the Main Falls of Patapsco River and fords on the lower reaches of Gwinn's Falls there existed in the eighteenth century three main roads, which, because their origin is mysterious and not explained by any known records, may possibly have been survivors of earlier military roads or even of Indian paths.

"In November 1733, the court appointed Charles Wells overseer of the road 'from the lower wadeing place of the main falls of Potapsco to the second wadeing place of Gwinns Falls' and of the road 'from the lower fording place of Gwinns Falls to Moales Point.' The lowest ford on the Main Falls of Patapsco River was situated in the immediate neighborhood of Relay or Avalon, near the site of the old Hockley Forge."

[The site of the Hockley Forge is on Levering Avenue in Halethorpe.]


Noted events in his life were:

• Appointed: overseer of certain roads along the Patapsco River, Nov 1733, Baltimore Co., Maryland, United States. "In November 1733, the court appointed Charles Wells overseer of the road 'from the lower wadeing place of the main falls of Potapsco to the second wadeing place of Gwinns Falls' and of the road 'from the lower fording place of Gwinns Falls to Moales Point.' The lowest ford on the Main Falls of Patapsco River was situated in the immediate neighborhood of Relay or Avalon, near the site of the old Hockley Forge."

Charles married Sarah Wright,5 6 daughter of John Wright, on 3 Jun 1726 in Baltimore Co, Maryland, (United States).7 Sarah was born about 1686 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, United States, was christened in 1706 in St. Anne's, Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States), and died about 1792 about age 106. Other names for Sarah were Sarah Arnold and Sarah Wright Arnold.

This date does not make sense if Sarah Arnold was the mother of Benjamin and Charles Wells, as listed in the same source, unless they were born out of wedlock.

Charles Wells (1745-1815)

Charles Wells, born 06 Apr 1745 son of Benjamin Wells and Temperance Butler, married 27 Dec 1764 Michal Owings who died on 17 May 1783, two months after the birth of her 10th child. He then married 24 Jul 1784 Elizabeth Prather, daughter of Charles Prather and Ruth Tannehill. They had 12 children making a total of 22 for Charles. The 20th was named "Twenty Wells" b: 23 Nov 1798 and was described in her father's will. (also mentioned below) as "a helpless child". His 3rd child, Temperance Wells b: 01 Sep 1769 m: 1) Nathaniel Wells (b: 01 Apr 1762) and thus formed one of the Big Wells-Little Wells family bonds. Nathaniel Wells was a son of Alexander Wells and Leah Owings.

Sistersville [West Virginia]
"Charles Wells also had his ties with a town called Sistersville. The exact year that Charles Wells, the first settler of prominence, arrived in the area which is now called Sistersville, is not known. In 1800, he had surveyed a tract of 200 acres on the Ohio River. Charles Wells was a man of prominence, who was involved with the Virginia State Legislature between 1789 and 1810. Sometime around 1802, Wells left Wellsburg in a flatboat and floated down the Ohio River to settle one mile below where Sistersville now exists. In his cargo was the machinery for a horse mill which he established. He built a log cabin just south of where the Sistersville Golf Course is today.

"On May 9, 1813, he acquired four hundred acres of land on which Sistersville and close residential area is located. Soon after the first court of Tyler county was held in his home, Charles Wells died in 1815. His grave has this inscription: "Charles Wells, born April 6, 1745; died April 6, 1815: aged 70 yrs. and ten days; a native of Baltimore County Maryland; immigrated to Ohio County, Virginia, 1776. He was a practical farmer and the father of twenty-two children, two wives, ten by the first and twelve by the second."

"His will provided for each living member of his family. In 1815, the Wells sisters, (Sarah and Delilah Wells Grier) laid out the town on the land which they had inherited. Sistersville hence got its name from the seventeenth and eighteenth children of Charles Wells. The town was incorporated Feb. 2, 1839, under the name Sistersville and in 1845, the municipal government was established.

"Charles died April 16,1815 in Baltimore County, MD."

HISTORY OF MIDDLEBOURNE, WEST VIRGINIA: Excerpts from "The Tyler Star News--Historical Edition; Vol.75, No. 30, Thursday, Oct 1, 1964; Sistersville, West Virginia. "William Wells, who lived a few miles above Middlebourne was the owner of a number of slaves. The stone house on the farm was completed in 1804 and is probably the oldest house in the community. Stone for the building was quarried on the farm mostly by slave labor and the work required about three years. As soon as the land was cleared, it was planted in tobacco which was the main industry for many years. William Wells deeded one acre of ground to the Methodist Episcopal Society in Nov. 13, 1820 on which a log cabin was erected. It was used as a school house and church for more than fifty years. The building was torn down about 1875, soon after the Methodist Church at Alma was built on its present location. This one acre plot, on which the log house was built was the beginning of Beachwood Cemetery."

FROM THE SAGA OF WILLIAM WELLS, COUNTY PIONEER By Daisy Furbee Wells: Wells Manor near Baltimore, Maryland was William's Birthplace. His father was Benjamin Wells who had five sons, including William. After the Revolution Benjamin moved his family and his slaves to Western Pennsylvania, and later to the norther panhandle of Virginia, where the town of Wellsburg was founded by Benjamin. William married his first wife, Catherine Sellman(Selmon) of Jefferson County, Ohio. They went south, and purchased a small farm with two log cabins, a few miles from Bethany, West Virginia. Around 1798, they explored land further south and eventually purchased 585 acres of land to build their permanent home. In May, 1800, be bartered for a flatboat and brought his wife, eight children and several slaves down the Ohio to a landing near where Sistersville now stands. William Wells was a tireless worker and keen business man. In less than four years, he and his sons and his Negro workmen had built the stone house, hauling the native stone in ox carts from the hollow in the hills back of the farm. The walls of the new home were 18 inches thick, straight and true by plumb-line measurements. On Jan 27,1813, the township of Middlebourne was established and William Wells was the first-named of the seven trustees. Early in the year 1816, sorrow came to the Wells household. On Jan 22, 1816 Catherine Sellman Wells died, leaving her Husband and children numbering eight sons and daughters. She was buried in the small cemetery near the stone house, beside a daughter-in-law, who had died the previous year. Five years after his first wife's death, William married Margaret Ankrom who was 37 years old at the time. He organized the first Court in the home of Charles Wells, his older brother at "Wells Landing', later named Sistersville. Later, he was made Acting Justice of that court, which was moved to Middlebourne. When Squire William's oldest brother, Charles, founder of Sistersville, died in 1829, William was named executor of his estate. William Wells was dignified in appearance; kind and cheerful in manner; wise in judgement; reserved yet forceful in his convictions; a good neighbor and a Christian gentleman.

William married Catherine Sellman,47 daughter of Thomas Sellman and Ruth Shipley, in 1787 in Fort Pitt, Ohio, Virginia, United States. Catherine was born on 17 Sep 1760 in Adams Garden, Baltimore, Maryland, (United States) and died on 22 Jan 1816 in West Virginia, United States at age 55.

William next married Margaret Ankrom on 2 Oct 1821 in Tyler Co., (West) Virginia, United States. Margaret was born on 27 Feb 1786 in Tyler, (West) Virginia, United States and died on 24 Oct 1868 in Tyler, West Virginia, United States at age 82.

Elizabeth married Morris Baker between 1797 and 1798.

Research Notes: Source: http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~digging/index.html lists him as Elizabeth's second husband, but the birthdate of her child would not make sense, nor would the age of Jacob Weakley. I'm guessing that Morris Baker was her first husband.

Elizabeth next married Jacob Weakley in 1811.55 Jacob was born in 1790 and died in 1850 at age 60.

Research Notes: RootsWeb OHWASHIN-L Archives has b. 1790, d. 1850. Neither date makes sense if Elizabeth married Morris Baker between 1797 and 1798, unless Morris Baker was her first husband.

-Unknown - 3 unidentified children, may be all sons. UNPROVED
- see note


note: Based on numbers for 1820/1830/1840 census, it appears there were 12 children counted in census, with at least 5 male, and 7 female. It appears all the males but Philip died before 1858 without heirs. Only Philip, Rachel and Delilih are specifically mentioned in Nicholas' 1858 will, but there is reference to "other daughters and descendents of deceased daughters", with no mention of other sons/descendents.

It is of course possible that some of the children counted in these census records were nieces/nephews or other children they were raising.


Nicholas left a will with three codicils. The will set aside land and road access for a graveyard, which is called "Long Reach Cemetery". He also freed his two slaves and their children, left them with some land and money. The 3rd codicil basically disinherited granddaughter Elizabeth Moore.


From the Will of Charles Wells, father of Nicholas, dated Dec 13 1814:

..."Item 3. To my son Nicholas Wells, he being already provided for, it is my will that he have nothing more of my estate either real or personal except whatever after my decease my said wife may gratuously give him of the part intrusted to her disposal."


From the Will of Elizabeth Wells, probated spring of 1845, mother of Nicholas:

..."3rd. I will and bequeath unto my son Nicholas Wells the Sum of Two Hundred and Fifty Dollars in addition to what he has already received."

I Nicholas Wells, of the County of Tyler in the State of West Virginia do make and publish this codicil to my last will and testament dated the 27th day of July 1858 as follows, that is to say. First----For the purpose of dividing the land divised in and by the fourth item of my said Will, to my daughters Rachel and Delilah between them. I will and direct that a line recently run by C.P.Russell, commencing on the bank of the Ohio River at a stone set up thence running S 56 E to a stone corner on the back line of my farm shall be the division line between my said daughters and the land lying between the land divised in said Will to my son Philip and said division line I give and devise to my said daughter Rachel and the land lying between the land of Selman Wells, and said division line I give and devise to my said daughter Delilah. Second---I will and direct that my negro man Samuel and my negro woman Lucy and her children shall be free at and after the time of my death, and I give and devise to the said Samuel and to the said Lucy and the the longest lived of them for and during their natural lives, the use and income of the following described tract of land situate in Pleasants County beginning at three chestnut oaks, thence N 27 E 24 poles with land of said S.

Wells , so many poles as may be necessary by running a strait line there from to a line agreed upon between myself, Edmund Riggs and Thomas Browse and thence to the beginning so as to include not exceeding one hundred acres, but in no event shall the last line along the land of said S. Wells, exceed 154 poles to a stone corner to land of Esely, whether the boundaries contain one hundred acres or less and after the death of the Samuel and Lucy I give and devise said land to the children of the said Lucy living at the time of her death in fee simple--I further will and direct that my son Philip and my daughters Rachel and Delilah each give the sum of one hundred dollars, to the said Samuel and Lucy to enable them to work and use said land. All property I hereby give to the said Samuel and Lucy and her children, on condition that neither of them make other claim whatever against my estate--Lastly I hereby revoke so much of my said last will and testament as is inconsistent herewith and republish and declare with this codicil thereto, to be my true last will and testament and to be taken together as one instrument in writing.

Nicholas married Rachel Witten 30 57 58 59 on 9 Jan 1810 in Washington Co., Ohio, United States. Rachel was born on 14 Aug 1780 in Virginia, (United States), died on 12 Aug 1861 in Tyler, West Virginia, United States at age 80, and was buried in Long Reach Cemetery, Sistersville, Tyler, West Virginia, United States.

Research Notes: From Findagrave.com:
Birth: Aug. 4, 1780
Death: Jun. 12, 1861

Married Nicholas Wells
Appear to have had 12 children, of which 8 are identified and listed in memorial for Nicholas.

From Jul 27 1858 will of Rachel's husband, Nicholas:

"First: I bequeath to my beloved wife Rachel all my household and kitchen furniture in absolute right except the beds and bedding herein after given to my daughters Rachel and Delilah. I also bequeath and devise to my wife for and during her life all my slaves and all my home place except the parts here in after devised to my son Philip and to the trustees of the graveyard, my "home place" being the tract of land on which I reside and which was conveyed to me by Archibold Woods."

A codicil to the Will freed his Negro man and woman, Samuel and Lucy, and Lucy's children upon his death, and made provisions for them. It is not known if these were all of the slaves originally left to Rachel in the Will but they probably had additional slaves to work the lands.

Nicholas had a relationship with Lucy Fisher.69 This couple did not marry.

Research Notes: Lucy was one of Nicholas Wells' slaves, named in the codicil to his will dated 27 July 1858 as "my negro woman Lucy." In that codicil, he freed Lucy, Lucy's husband Samuel Zanes and all Lucy's children. He granted them a tract of land and other support.

It is possible that Nicholas fathered two children with Lucy, and that Lucy later had four more children with Samuel.

A LONG LIFE

Death of an Aged West Virginia Lady

There recently died at her home near Sistersville, Tyler county, a lady who has lived under the administration of every President since Washington. This was Mrs. Sarah McCoy. The Sistersville Democrat says of her:

She was born in Brooke county, W. Va., in 1793; she came to this place with her father's family of twenty-two children in 1806. She was the mother of eight children, six of whom are dead. She has been a widow since 1835. As a child she gathered wild flowers where the streets of the town now are. She attended school in the old house, the very site of which is gone--engulfed by the river. She saw the keel boats float down the river, then a narrow and deep stream. She has seen the flat boat superseded by the steamer, a magnificent floating palace. Again, she saw the steamer partially fall into disuse by the railroad. She has seen the log cabin with its puncheon floors replaced by elegant houses with carpeted floors and fine furniture. The linsey dress has given place to silks and satins, and the handkerchief tied over the head is replaced by the artistic hat or bonnet. She has lived under every President of the United States from George Washington to Grover Cleveland.

Sistersville, she saw planted in the wilderness when she was a child, and hunted "ground berries" among the corn, where now stand substantial houses and handsome stores.

~ The Wheeling Register - December 27, 1887 ~

Noted events in her life were:

Hauntings at Woodlawn Cemetery (from http://www.forgottenoh.com/Counties/Lawrence/woodland.html ) :

"Woodland Cemetery in Ironton is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman whose abusive husband killed her by throwing her down a flight of stairs. A life-sized statue of her stands above her grave, and a handprint appears on its cheek even after the cheek has been sandblasted. The statue is supposed to be warm all the time, even in the coldest months.

"Woodlawn is also said to be home to the ghost of a Russian ballerina, who is entombed in one of the family mausoleums. Her likeness is carved into the mausoleum. On nights with full moons, it is said, you can see her dancing outside her final resting place.

"Dr. Joseph W. Lowry also haunts Woodland, seeking vengeance for his murder and mutilation. Dr. Lowry is often seen with his mother, who died from a broken neck when she was thrown from her carriage by a spooked horse. They walk together toward the cemetery gates but never make it past the highway bridge. "

Research Notes: Eliza Smith McMunn's lineage is dependent upon data obtained from Rod Blackman via www.familysearch.org 8/26/06. Appears to be well researched.

Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about Grandmother Talbot (Margaret Burrows Talbot) thus on 8/17/1986:

"My vague recollection, substantiated by I know not what, is that on one occasion when my family was visiting the ranch [in North Platte, Nebraska] Grandmother Talbot and I got mired in quick sand and she held me aloft as we sank into the gooey substance. needless to say, we were rescued, or I wouldn't be able to write this way to you today.

"Folklore has it also that she was gifted by remarkable superhuman strength on an occasion when a wagon collapsed on one of her sons and she lifted the entire load by the wagon axle until he could be pulled free. An impossible task under ordinary circumstances.

"I remember the smells of her farm kitchen and helping with the churning of butter. We trimmed the wicks of the kerosene lanterns. A small kitchen garden seemed always to be producing some good things to eat. I don't remember her passing."

"She died in 1942 at age 49 in Long Beach, Calif. She should be remembered for many things (pecan pies!), but a couple of memories stand out.

"There were the Saturday night family baths in that big galvanized tub in the kitchen, filled with hot water from the top of the wood stove. My turn came late and the water was fairly well saturated with [grime] of the weeke when my turn arrived. I never saw my parents as they bathed spared major destruction."
---------
Son DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of his mother, Lula Mae, on 8/17/1986:

"The 12 years of widowhood -- it seems a short time now but a long time then in the context of a boy growing through the teens -- for my mother were mostly years spent scraping to stay alive, taking in boarders, working on my uncle's [George M. Talbot's] dairy ranch, slaving at Jergen's soap factory. She even worked for a time as cook and housekeeper for the movie stars Frances Dee and Joel McCrea.

"Very soon after Alex's death the 37-year-old widow, three children, cousin Owen Mulholland made their way across country in the Model A Ford open touring car to California, Burbank. We came at the invitation of Uncle George M. Talbot, owner of the Talbot Dairy.

"Of that trip, the rust-orange dust accumulated while crossing Arizona evokes the strongest memory. There were flat tires, how many I have no way of recalling...

"Lula and Aunt Fannie Talbot belonged to the Bon Ami social club, primarily devoted to bridge. (The tagalong youngsters popped popcorn and played street games: tag, run sheep run, hide and seek, totally inocuous by today's standards.) Most of the Bon Ami members were married couples. It was that group that constituted the bulk of Lula's contacts, leading to the job at Jergens soap and to acquaintanceship with widower Frank Joanis, a Burbank grocer.

"Their dating continued for several years until Joanis quite suddenly married another woman whom he had recently met.

"The move to Long Beach was occasioned by supposed house maid opportunities that never materialized...

"My mother died at 49, the victim of a fad starvation diet that was supposed to reduce the size of a goiter, more imaginary than real (Real enough but of no consequence.)

"She was a loving mother, ill-equipped to help a young man, Clifford, and a growing boy, DeWayne, to understand the changes in their male bodies...

"To put things a bit into historical perspective, World War II was well along when Lula died. The Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor had occurred six months previous, Dec. 7, 1941. Lorna and I were married on Aug. 22, 1942, soon after her death in June."

Marriage Notes: According to their son DeWayne, they were married on Valentine's Day. Alex's obituary gives the year as 1912.

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Alt. Marriage: 14 Feb 1911.

Death Notes: From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska, newspaper: "The community was shocked and saddened Friday morning by the news of the sudden death of Alex Johnson while he was visiting relatives at North Platte. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and family left here on Saturday, May 24 for a visit with her sister and her family at North Platte. On Thursday Mr. Johnson was taken very sick with ptomanine [sic] poisoning. A physician was called and he began to improve. Friday morning he was able to be up, but complained of a headache and was lying down. Mrs. Johnson had gone to another room to get some medicine for his headache and was gone only a very short time but when she returned he had passed away. Physicians were called, but could do nothing, death being due to a sudden heart attack."

General Notes: Occupation: Carpenter. From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska newspaper: "...They established their home in Newman Grove [in 1912] and have resided her continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken."

From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"(The 'L' in my father's name was not an initial because that was the 'name' and hence takes no period.)...

"Today the mini-park near downtown [Newman Grove] includes the bandstand where my father played oboe in the town band...

"That is the man I tagged along with to his woodshop down near the granary. From that woodshop I still smell the gragrant homemade glues in their heating pots, I see the wood grains from rare specimens that went into carefully crafted table tops, bowls, cabinetry, and hear the scrabbling of tiny rodent feet fleeing for cover when the doors we opened.

"I tagged along as he walked the streets in town, greeted heartily by everyone he met. I know now that as a carpenter he built many of the buildings, homes, in town and surrounding vicinities."

DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of him on 8/17/1986:

"His hands were heavily wrinkled, tanned, scarred; his fingernails were ragged and never seemed quite rid of the residue of the day's labors. The brown, blood-clot areas under the nails were evidence of the beating the hands took as he hammered, pried, used his sinewy strength to build homes, schools, churches, and his artistic touch on fine cabinetry, delicate inlaid wooden trays, a variety of carved or lathe-turned items that would today be labeled 'examples of wood artisans, Early American Primitive to Post-World War I.'

"This carpenter's hands were gentle. To a small boy's hands they were tremendous, warm and snug retreats during proud walks on the streets of Newman Grove, Nebraska, where Alexander L Johnson was known far and wide as 'Alex.' (The 'L' had no period' it stood for nothing. To those who insisted it had to stand for 'something,' a concession was made: Lloyd, or possibly Loyd. One 'L' or two, it made no difference because truly it stood for nothing.

"I remember those hands as he warmly shook hands of others during those prized walks: Alex was clearly loved, respected by everyone, those townfolks with the funny foreign-sounding names...

"It flits through my mind to recall his hands, the dancing fingers as he played the oboe in the town band during its summertime concerts in the park band shell. And the strong, mascuiline right hand and the convincingly feminine left hand as 'Alex' costumed himself half male and half female for some annual celebration and parade down Main Street.

"Alex and his skills were in great demand; it is likely that some of the rural schools he built -- some of them single-handedly -- still stand today in some corners of Nebraska where Alex Johnson has long been forgotten. And Alex Johnson's houses absolutely remain, with their fashionable gingerbread of the time, and the curved staircases with their fancy railings, the hardwood floors, the weighted window sashes, and the trademark cabinetry.

"Alex had a hand in building the brick schools of Newman Grove, primary grads and high school For a short period he even taught wood shop at the high school (probably as a substitute teacher)...

"The lights went out for a 10-year-old boy on a spring day in 1930 when his father died in a farm house at North Platte, Nebraska.

"The bewilderment remains to this day -- one day so much alive, so much enjoying the fishing, the catching, the eating, and the next day quiet whispers, somber tip-toeing so as not to disturb. (The doctor surmised the death was caused by ingesting spoiled fish.) The return to Newman Grove on a bright Sunday morning, the church bells ringing, and still the 10-year-old could not understand."

Research Notes: Middle initial L does not stand for anything. It is simply L without a period. It may not be on his birth certificate.

Excerpts from obituary in Newman Grove weekly newspaper, fully quoted in a letter to daughter Janine Johnson 8/17/1986, p. 4:

Alexander L. Johnson was born in Seward county, Nebraska September 28, 1885 and and passed away at the home of relatives at North Platte May 30, 1930 at the age of 44 years and 8 months.

On february 12, 1912 [actually Feb. 14, Valentine's Day] he was married at Grand Island to Lulu [Lula Mae] Talbot of Polk. They established their home in Newman Grove [occupying the house recently vacated by Conrad Erickson and known forever as 'the Erickson House'] and have resided here continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough, conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken.

On Thursday Mr. Johnson was taken very sick with ptomanine [sic][ poisoning. A physician was called and he began to improve. Friday morning he was able to be up, but complained of a headache and was lying down. Mrs. Johnson had gone to another room to get some medicine for his headache and was gone only a very short time but when she returned he had passed away.

According to DeWayne B. Johnson 8/17/1986: "Son Ralph was something of the farm foreman and the rest of the siblings battled over the smallish estate, contending it was unfair of Ralph to have taken advantage of the situation to assume control of the ranch."

D. B. Johnson further writes: "The forks of the Platte River come together at North Platte, Nebraska, and part of the bottom land of the Talbot Ranch was divided by the river. My vague recollection, substantiated by I know not what, is that on one occasion when my family was visiting the ranch Grandmother Talbot and I got mired in quick sand and she held me aloft as we sank into the gooey substance. needless to say, we were rescued, or I wouldn't be able to write this way to you today."

General Notes: From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

Big brother Cliff was an eagle scout and knew 'everything.' He taught DeWayne, five years his junior, how to tell time. He shoed him the ropes, literally, in swinging from a cable attached to a high limb and jumping what seemed to be great distances from the high bank into the side yard of the frame house recently built by father, Alex. And typing of knows, Boy Scout style. Club house secrets in the musty storm cellar well-stocked with canned fruits and vegetables. Shelves of home brew: Rood beer! An open door to friends. In particular Cliff knew how to bury potatoes in a hollow in the ground, cover them with rocks, which in turn are covered with fragrant brush, dried leaves, heavier sticks to create larger embers..."
