Margaret Letcher "Maggie" Williams Wells
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 8, 1861
Franklin County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jul. 19, 1922
Benton County
Arkansas, USA

Margaret Letcher "Maggie" (Williams) Wells was born on 8 Mar 1861 in Franklin Co., KY to Jacob and Catherine C (Mueller) Williams. After the death of her mother in 1876, Maggie's older sister, Mildred Carlton "Minnie," who was the new bride of Josiah Hazen Shinn, took Maggie and her three younger siblings to raise.

Maggie married James Webster Wells on 2 Jan 1885 in the home of her brother-in-law, JH Shinn in Magnolia, AR.

Maggie and James' son, Raymond Wyatt Wells, is buried in the same cemetery. Their son, Homer Franklin Wells, is buried in Ft Leavenworth, KS.

For anyone looking at the gravestone, and thinking of send a correction on the year of birth, please don't. Her birth record says, as does the family record, that she was born on 8 Mar 1861. The gravestone is incorrect.

A heart of gold stopped beating, two willing Hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. May you find peace in the arms of Jesus
