Re: Freeman WELLS

I have some information on the Freeman Wells, Jr family. His wife, Sally Ann, was the daughter of Elizabeth Hefflefinger Boyer Huffman and an unknown father. At the time Elizabeth's father's will was written in 1808, Elizabeth was married to a John Boyer, but by 1819 she was a Huffman. I'm not sure which husband was Sally Ann's father but I have never come across anyone by the name of Mason being married to Elizabeth.

Sally Ann was an only child and the heir to Elizabeth when she died in 1849. Her inheritance was set-up in a trust that was managed on her behalf by James Mullins. Elizabeth states in her will that her daughter, Sally, was "now the wife of Freeman Wells". It may be that Sally was married to a Mason prior to her marriage to Freeman Wells. I have been unable to locate a record of Sally's marriage(s).

Elizabeth's will is recorded on pages 150-152 in Henry County, Virginia Will Book 5 contained on microfilm Henry County Reel 16, Library of Virginia, Richmond.
