Wells Infant

I found two graves listed on the Rock Co., WI GenWeb, that are buried at Coon Island Cemetery, that are possible leads for my genealogy research. If any one has any info on them, I would greatly appreciate their input.

The first marker is:
Died 26 Sep 1863 - “Infant of N. & S. C. WELLS; between Rachel Ann REED and Stephen WELLS; broken in half and flat on ground” Buried at Coon Island Cemetery in Magnolia, Rock Co., WI

I suspect that this infant may have been a sibling, or maybe even a twin to my GGrandmother Alma Charity Wells. Alma Charity's parents were Nelson & Sarah Catherine (Greatsinger) Wells.

The second marker is:
Died 1871 Apr 19 - "Stephen Wells - "Son of J. & _. WELLS; AE 13 yrs.; between Infant WELLS and Charlotte A. MITCHELL" Buried at Coon Island Cemetery in Magnolia, Rock Co., WI

I wonder whether this Stephen's parents were James & Catherine Wells - however, that is confusing because they are the parents of the Stephen Nelson Wells that married Sarah Kathryn (Catherine? etc..) Greatsinger. I wonder whether they would of named two of their sons Stephen - it's possible I suppose.

Any help with the ID or any obit info or any genealogy info would be greatly appreciated!!
