-----------

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.]

-Unknown - there is a gravestone in Long Reach Cem engraved "Child of Nicholas and Rachel Wells, died Aug 12 1862", with no first name or DOB. None of their known children died in 1862. Appears to be a son.

-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 to a beech, thence S70 E along the 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.

Research Notes: Wife - Rachel Witten

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.
