David Wells and Sarah Tackett

DAVID WELLS was born Abt. 1817 in Kanawha County, Virginia, and died 10 April 1885 in Washington Courthouse, Fayette County, Ohio. He married Sarah Tackett in October of 1840 in Kanawha County, Virginia (later called West Virginia). She was born Abt. 1818 in Kanawha County, Virginia, and died 18 October 1891 in Washington Courthouse, Fayette County, Ohio. David was a carpenter.

So far I have been unable to connect Sarah to the rest of Tacketts of Virginia. If Tackett wasn't her maiden name perhaps she was previously married to a Tackett. The are lots of Wells and Tacketts living near each other in the early Kanawha County records. There are some deed records showing land dealings between them as well. The amount paid for the parcels of land indicates a relationship between the two families.

Following are the known children of David Wells and Sarah Tackett:

1. John L. Wells, born Abt. 1841.
2. Francis "Frank" M. Wells, born Abt. 1843.

3. James Alfred Wells, born 3 February 1845 in Charleston, Kanawha County, Virginia

4. Anna Wells, born Abt. 1849.
5. Sarah J. Wells, born Abt. 1853.
6. Virginia A. "Alice" Wells, born Abt. 1857.
