Spent a lot of time today working on updating info on ancestry.com and findagrave.com.  Adding relationship links on a few pictures on findagrave and adding lots of pictures, obit and Wells folks on ancestry on my tree there.  Hoping that maybe I’ll be able to hook up with more distant cousins this way.  

Today’s CEMETERY OF THE DAY is… the Beckett Cemetery, Waterford Township, OH (Washington Co.)  Located at the intersection of Swift Road and Echo Valley Road (T104). 

*Cory, Anne “Nancy” Wells        (Jan 1, 1770 – Feb 17, 1849)    1st Cousin 5Xs Removed…. (Anne “Nancy” is the daughter of Thomas Wells and Sarah Clarke who were both born in Washington Co. RI and died in Washington Co., OH.  Anne was born in RI as well but was married in Ohio.)

*Cory, Thomas       (May 27, 1765 – Sep 13, 1822     h/o Anne Wells  “Cory Thomas, Died: 9-13-1822, Sacred to the Memory of Thomas Cory, a Native of Rhode Island and an Active Aider in Revolution Patiently endured the Toils and Hazards of war, A Pioneer of the Western Wilds, Underwent many Privations and Hardships and He Died Sept 13, 1822 in the 59th Year of his Age.”

 Children of Thomas and Anne Corey:

Cory, Charles S.     ( Nov 29, 1792 – Jun 17, 1869)  2nd Cousin 4Xs Removed

Cory, Ann White   (X – Jan 16, 1879)  w/o Charles S. Corey

Cory, Bathsheba    (About 1805 – Feb 9, 1859)   2nd Cousin 4Xs Removed

*Cory, Charlotte   ( About 1791 – Oct 16, 1817)  2nd Cousin 4Xs Removed

Cory, Julian/Julia?  (  X – July 18, XXXX   )   2nd Cousin 4Xs Removed

Cory, William     ( About 1807 – Sep 10, 1828  ) 2nd Cousin 4Xs Removed

Cory, Vesta      ( X – Aug 30, XXXX   ) 2nd Cousin 4Xs Removed

 *Note: I had this family spelled “Corey” but when I found a photo of Charlotte’s gravestone, it is spelled “Cory” on the stone.

Thomas is the son of Edward Wells and Elizabeth Randall.  This seems to be a branch of the family (children of Edward Wells and Elizabeth Randall) that really branched out if you’ll pardon the pun.  Of the 12 Children I have listed for Edward Wells and Elizabeth Randall, one died in Ohio (That’s Thomas), 2 in New york State, 1 in Massachusetts, 3 in Rhode Island, one in Connecticut and 4 are a mystery.

Wells, her brother, and his son Orrin M. Wells, who you also wrote about June 15, 2010! Your site has so much info!!
