From The Descendents of Thomas Wellman of Lynn MA, by Joshua Wyman Wellman 1918

Joshua Wyman Wellman was the grandson of James and Alethea Ripley Wellman

James Wellman commenced clearing up his farm in Cornish, N.H., in the spring of 1776, by burning over the "East Hill" so called. He sowed grass seed on a part of it but not came of it. In the fall he cut off the bushes from about two acres which he seeded to grass and grain. The next year he cleared and sowed eight acres where the buildings now stand and in 1778 he build the first barn on the place. "Thus it took the young man more than ten years to prepare a home for his young bride. They commenced on a new farm, in a new one-storied house with a new barn. The fields were small and covered with great stumps of the large trees of the primeval forest which had been but recently felled to the ground. Mr. Wellman being a man of energy and strict integrity possessed a remarkable business capacity. He was industrious, economical and thrifty. He soon became a prosperous farmer.

He united with the church to which his father ministered, on the half-way covenant, 24 July 1777, but he never offered himself for full communion. He read his Bible constantly and believed heartily in the Christian religion, had great respect for its ordinances and for truly Christian people. Up to old age he was a regular attendant upon the services of public worship and contributed cheerfully his full part for the support of the ministry. He died in Cornish at the advanced age of eighty-seven years and four months, lacking two days.
