James Ebenezar Wells Bible

Submitted by: Cheri Reeves.


The entries below are a transcription of my great-grandfather's Bible page, James Ebenezar Wells. Gussie Amanda Wells, the firstborn of the children listed here, was my grandmother. I do not know who wrote this information. I assume James Ebenezar. However, on my copy someone has typed in the names and the birth and death dates then available. No dates appeared on the Bible page at all. Since I received this copy from my cousin, most of the children mentioned here, if not all, have passed away. I do not have all of their death dates exact; some I just know month and year.
