I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


Census records do not record the "specific" birth location for a person. ONLY the state or country is recorded.

OH Vital Records -
Ohio law established the Bureau of Vital Statistics on December 20, 1908. On that date, the mandatory registration of birth and death certificates occurred. Since that time, all birth and death certificates have been registered through our office.

The 1840 county census has three WELLS households: Nathan, Martin and Wm. These same households appear to still be in the county in the 1850 census listings, but I see no listing for Josephine among them.

Her marriage is 1859 in Crawford co., IL, and 1860, 1870, 1880 Crawford co. census listings record her place of birth as Indiana.

Have you looked for the surname WILLS as well as WELLS?
