I read recently that a WELLS individual actually witnessed Fones GREEN's will. I would like to know if 1) is this true and 2) what connection did he have with any WELLS individuals?
You see, my 2gr grandfather is James Fones WELLS b: 1814 in NY to a James Wells and Persis (Earle). James b: 1792 is my brick wall. One record has him listed as born n New Hampshire but all his children's census records indicate he was born in Connecticut. This 'sort of' fits as after finding a 'living WELLS male' who is descended from James WELLS (James Fones only has daughters ... at least that survived) and after a Y-DNA test, he has a 'common ancestor' with Gov. Thomas WELLES of Wethersfield, CT. I have never been able to find a connection between James and Thomas ... well, one 'possibility' with Thomas' great-grandson, who married a Rachel / Rebecca FRANCES of Newington.
