Your tree still depicts John Frank Wells/Emma Hope Hancock? Are you certain they and descendants are related to your family? I find no evidence they relocated to Texas. Instead, you need John Wells/Emma Stepp that were parents of: Lizzie Mae Reynolds (14 Feb 1902 - 11 Mar 1971), Macie Lorene Strickland (1 Oct 1904 - 22 Apr 1977), and John Buford Wells (14 Sep 1907 - Jan 1985). Another son, Jesse L. Wells, enumerated on 1920 census but he was actually Jessie Eurbin Like born 27 Mar 1912 to Mack Like and Emma Stepp. If your hypothesis that John Wells assumed nom de plume: Charles Lewis Wells, then an investigation should follow? Admittedly, I concur but DNA will provide unimpeachable evidence. If they were one-and-the-same, then your father and John Buford Wells were half brothers? J. B. Wells had at least four sons that were/are your first cousins. One of his male heirs, Glenn Dale Wells, had two sons by Myrna Alice Hamby: Glenn Dale and Stephen Scott that might be willing to participate in DNA-testing? The next move belongs to you.
