It has been about 2 years since we posted our first query regarding Ed and Mintie "Porter" Wells on this forum.We have had no response to that posting, however, since then we have found the 1930 Census for these individuals,
Once again they were living in the Ripley Township of Rush County, Indiana ED70-9 Pg. 7B Incorporated Place CARTHAGE Town:
Wells, Ed-Head- 50 born in KY-Age at first Marriage 20 Wells, Minnie-wife 44 born in KY-Age at first Marriage 14 Wells, Mollie A. Dau -born in KY Wells, Clyde V. Son 21-born in KY Wells, Claude B. Son 14-born in KY Wells, Carolen(Carl?) Son 12-born in KY Wells, Della M. Dau 9-born in Ind Wells, Grace I. Dau 6-born in Ind Wells, B. Helen Dau 4yr 5mo -born in Ind Wells, Chester F. Son 2yr 1mo -born in Ind
It would appear that Ed and Mintie moved from KY to IN between 1918 and 1921.In the 1930 census both Ed and Clyde were listed as Laborers in a Paper Mill.
Ed’s father, William R. Wells, was my 2nd great Grandfather.
