Saw your post from 2006 on Julius Wells. He was my GGG Grandfather thru his daughter Mary Elizabeth Wells who married James Christopher Thompson. Julius was married three times, lastly to Mary Esther Randall McFarland 8/20/1862 in Rolla, Phelps Co., Mo. They were on the 1870 Census for Texas Co., Mo. Mary's daughter by previous marriage is listed as Chris McFarland age 12.
They moved to Texas after 1870. Some of his brothers also relocated to Texas.
Where did you find his death date? I would like to find where he is buried.
I will share info. Hopefully you are still checking this forum. Waiting to hear from you.
