Hve you tried contacting the Rootsweb mail list for Zachariah Wells? Or you can try my web site, I don't recall off teh top of my head if I have Rebecca's family info the URL is I am descendant from one of your Zachariah's sibling's Jeremiah Wells s/o of Zachariah Wells (Sr) m. to Abigail or Elizabeth osborne. There are numerous descendants of Zachariah on teh Rootsweb mail list who can probably help you out.

I'm one of the many descendents of Zachariah Wells and just thought you should check for Rebecca Sheperd in Lee County, VA because Wise did not become a county until 1857. Since Zachariah and his many children are listed in Lee County, VA from 1810, Rebecca Shepherd's family may also be listed. After 1857, they show up in the Wise County, VA census.

There is a Wise ,VA and a Wise CO ,Virginia. Also the last name Shepard exists in the same county Zachariah owned land in, early in his life in Wilkes Co NC and this may be the daughter of James or John Shepard. The Shepards, Wells',Boggs' and other families all migrated with one another from 1780s-1805 and if you notice, all relocated to Wise County during this time period. I would begin searching Wilkes County birth records first.
