RE: Isham Sheffield
Sandy, this is in my hometown, so when I go back I hope to have more time as well. I know the coroner there and want to get with him to find out what I can on how to further my information on the unmarked graves. I'll keep my paperwork and if I can find out anything, next time I'm home, I'll give it another go.

Sorry I couldn't get you what you needed.

Thank you so much for the transfers and for all you do to help make Find A Grave such a helpful, meaningful, and historically significant resource.

Have a great evening and rest of the weekend.

Jacob & Sarah C. Wells children

To follow up, I received a copy of the Jacob Wells 1852 probate which lists the names of the 6 children. All but one, William F Wells, seem to have Find A Grave recorded tombstones. I have requested the last one as of yet not linked, Elizabeth Wells Beem, to be given the link. This seems to confirm that your husband's Austin is from another Wells branch. Good luck with the hunt.

RE: Jacob & Sarah Wells children
Hi Sandy,

I have been in touch with the historical soc. for Jackson County and they sent me 1886 biographical sketches for two of the sons . According to the bios Jacob & Sarah had only 6 children. Four of those children are identified and a fifth, William F Wells is likely identified by the 1850 census. He apparently died within a few years as his spouse remarried in 1854. The sixth child must have died young or left the county prior to the 1850 census. Ancestry shows that there were several Jacob Wells in Indiana in 1830 so perhaps Austin was descended from one of them? I am hopeful that the society will keep looking to try to confirm the names of the two "mystery" children.

RE: Carothers
Hi sandy,
I took a quick look at the chart and will get back to it this PM. One quick question. Was Austin Shroud Wells killed in the Civil War & does he have a tomb stone. You will see that I have posted a picture of his sister, Mary Smith Wells Branaman which was in the possession of my grandmother. Perhaps Austin looked somewhat the same?

RE: Jay Tracy
Good catch - let's call it a brain cramp. Yes, Shelburne Vital Records says "Jay, son of Cyrus & Parmela Tracy died Aug. 21, 1818 in his 4th year."

Jay Tracy (117074704)
Hi, Sandy - I just posted a photo of the gravestone for Jay Tracy in Shelburn, VT. It's quite eroded and a little hard to read, but the printed record makes it clear about birth, death and age: 24 January 1815 - 24 Aug 1818 [Source: Tracy, Evert E., M. D., Tracy Genealogy - Ancestors and Descendants of Lieutenant Thomas Tracy of Norwich, Conn., 1660 (Albany, NY: John Munsell's Sons, 1898), pg. 72.]
