The Wells Family - 3 Generations

The Wells Family - 3 Generations

This Wonderful Group Photo Has 3 Generations of My Paternal Wells Line, and Was Taken Circa 1905-1906 in Pine Grove or Hood River, Oregon. The Young Boy in the Center of the Front Row Was My Grandfather, George Reuben Wells, Born 27 Dec 1900 in Turkey Texas. The Young Girl Next to Him Was His Sister Molly. Next to Molly is Emilee Lester. Her Father, John Samuel Lester is the Man Kneeling With the Baby, Eunice Beatrice Lester. The Tallest Gentleman in the Back Row Was My Great Grandfather, Andrew Elmer Wells, Born 3 Sept 1878. His Sister, Mary Frances Wells Was the Wife of John Samuel Lester. In the Center Row, the Gentleman With the White Hair and Mustache Was My Great Great Grandfather, George Milton Wells, Born 29 Aug 1838 in Davis County, Illinois. Died 19 Dec 1913 in Hood River, Oregon. I Have Assumptions About a Few of the Other People in This Photo, But No Proof. My Wells Line is Known as "The Little Wells" Line in the World of Wells Researchers.

Family Photo

Thanks for the photo, Laurie. It's the first picture I've ever seen of my paternal grandfather, John Samuel Lester.

I'm hoping to see more family as I get deeper into the tracing of it through Ancestry(dot)com.
