Wells Family Cemetery
- Hi Pat. I was not able to locate this cemetery. The Jackson Co. Land
Patent show Nicolls (sic-Nicholas??), William and Obadiah buying land
from about 1881 to 1888. There is a Bodwell on that list too. The
family cemetery might be a private cemetery located on their property?
There is a Nicholas Wells and family on the 1870 Etowah Co., AL
census. There is a Nicholas 57, Levina 46, John 19, Nicholas 17 (is
that who bought the land in Jackson CO.,??), Susan D. 14, Elias 10
I did find a post on Genforum for Nicholas Wells. You will need to
verify all this information. I am just re-typing what is posted
there. Nicholas son Vann married Harriet Jones. Harriet, may be of
Native American heritage. They lived in the Paint Rock area of
Jackson Co, AL. A Linda Dobbins Bridges did the post. She states that
her husband is a son of Vann. There are many long posts in connection
with this; if this is all new information to you then I will be happy
to get it for you. Good luck researching.
