A nice person on www.findgrave.com went out and took some pictures for me of the graves of the Wells family in the Wyreka Cemetery located in Putnam County, MO.  Head of this family was the Rev. George Wells.  Here’s a picture of George:

George is the son of Stephen Wells Jr. and Lois Hubbard (Stephen Jr and Lois’ burial place is unknown to me).  Stephen Wells Jr was the son of Ensign Stephen Wells Sr. and Love Ford.  I’m unsure of where Stephen Sr. is buried but I do know that Love is buried at Church on the Hill Cemetery in Lenox, MA.   Stephen Sr. was born in Hopkinton, RI in 1754, the son of Capt. Edward Wells Jr. and Elizabeth Sheffield.

Back to Rev. George Wells.  He was born in New York State 25 April 1810 and died in Lucerne, Mercer County, MO on 4 October 1896.  Here is his gravestone in Wyreka Cemetery:
