Adopted parents are James WELLS (B -1815-1821, England; D -23 Jan 1898, Lapeer, MI, USA) and Eliza SHAW (B - 9 May 1832, England; D –18 Mar 1902, Lapeer, MI, USA), married about 1851 in England. They lived in Lapeer County, Michigan, United States. Parents also have a daughter named Maria (Mariah) born November 1852 in England.
Henry WELLS married Ida E. TIMBROOKS (B – 24 Dec 1871, MI; D- 2 Jan 1909, Lenawee County, MI) on 9 Oct 1889 in Michigan.
The family story is that Henry lost his birth parents in boat accident (unclear if a ship crossing the ocean or on boat in lake). Supposedly he lived with another family before the WELLS took him in.
Henry is listed in 1870, and 1880 census for Almont, Lapeer, MI with parents Janes and Eliza. He is listed in 1900 census with his wife Ida in Lapeer County, Michigan.

I am looking for my great grandfather and his parents. His name was Joseph E. Wells. No middle name only initial. Born April 20, 1882 in or near Dallas, TX. His fathers name was John Wells and his mother was Talitha Smith. It is said she was a full blooded Cherokee or Choctaw. I have not been able to track anything farther than Joseph Wells.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My gr. grandmother's maiden name was WELLS, and she came from Maury Co., TN.....I live in TX., and there were only a handful of my clan, that migrated here. Would like to correspond with any WELLS family members. Her father was John F. WELLS, who married Martha Louise Williams WELLS. Would like to learn more about the WELLS; possibly attend a family reunion in Volunteer State. Thanks
There are many Wells' from the W006 DNA profile (attributed to Thomas Wells born 1653 England) who migrated South from Maryland. There is also John James Wells born 1595 England, believed to be the grandfather of Thomas Wells born 1653 not proven. The W006 line known to have lived in Tennessee are descendants of Augustine Wells born 1760 and Thomas Wells born 1729 through.
As I recall there is a W006 line out of Maury Tn. and if I am correct it is Andrew Wells. His line are distant cousins and I am not up to speed on them.
Have you taken a Y DNA? This would be most helpful in making a deternination as to which Wells line you come from.

He was born in Wylie, Collins, Texas in 1873, We think he may be from the Glover Wells Line that came from Kentucky in the 1850's, but not sure. His children said he was a Choctaw Indian. We have not been able to find any solid evidence. Since none of his children knew who his parents were, It is possible that they were both dead before he was grown. He had a brother named Lewis, and a sister named Martha. Another borther called Lem and there was a pair of twins in there somewhere. No one seems to know the order of birth on the kids or anything. John Glover Wells did mary in Rockwall in 1901 to Henrietta /Cruzan/ or spelled /Crusan/ Her Family is well documented. Did the Choctaw people keep records?
