Aaron and Ruth had 15 children who mostly settled in the parts of Mason County which became Nicholas County and later Robertson County. Ruth's family was from Maryland, where Aaron came from and who his parents were is still a mystery... We do have some hope in solving this though. The worldwide Wells Association is working with us on a DNA project. Please consider attending the 2001 reunion. The more people we have, the better chance we have of getting results.
I have just added a map that shows Aaron and Ruth's 100 acre "plantation" near Blue Licks.
Children: Nathan, Elizabeth A., Rachel E., Drucilla & Ruama (twins), Sarah "Sally" W., Nancy, William W., Robert, John W., Ruth, Aaron, Mary "Polly", Daniel & Uriah (twins).

Be sure to include what Wells son or daughter you are descended from.
We generally start arriving at 11 or 12 that morning. Lunch is at 1PM. Potential activities include swimming (if we have enough interest), boating, volleyball, softball, music by some of your Wells cousins and games for young and old.
Directions to the camp:
37 miles north of from Lexington. From Paris, follow 68 north. Go through Millersburg keeping on 68. You will come to yellow, flashing lights. Turn left and continue on 68, (not straight on 36 to Carlisle). After 3/4 miles you'll see the Carnico golf course/country club. Turn right on 1455. (From Maysville, go south on 68 past Blue Licks until you get to Carnico.) The 4-H Camp Drive is one mile down 1455 on the left. You will pass 2 lakes on 1455. The North Central 4-H Center sign is just past the second lake. There will be signs to direct you to drop-off and parking.
We've started the WELLS-KY mailing list! This list only deals with Wells families in Kentucky before 1792 when KY became a state. You may discuss descendants and related families also.
