Lonnie, did you ever get any dates on William Wells? I have Wells from Polk Co., Morrisville, Looney Twp, 1885 and Oakville, Jackson Co., in 1887. They had children on those dates. His name is Robert C. Wells, b. 4 Mar 1858 Conway Co., AR, he was a farmer. His wife was Elisha Ann Sheridan Wells, b. 1886 MO. (I believe her father William P. Sheridan, b. KY also lived in Polk Co. I might not have his first name correct but I do know they lived in MO).
