I am seeking any information on the parents of John W. Wells who married Martha Anne Hickson in March 1819 in Warren County, MS.
I believe these are the parents of my great grandfather, Hickson Pendleton Wells, b. 10 Sep 1829 Adams County, MS.
The 1880 census for Marysville, Marshall County, KS for H.P. Wells indicates his parents were born Father in WV and Mother in NC. (I have conflicting information that his mother may have been born in SC, according to a mini bio for H.P., who was a probate judge in Marshall County, KS at that time.
If John W. Wells is H.P.'s father and was born in West Virgina (according to the 1880 census), WV did not become a state until 1863, during the Civil War. Consequently, I believe John W. Wells would have been born in a portion of Virginia that eventually became West Virginia.
I am seeking John W. Wells' place of birth and his parents and siblings. I guestimate that both John and Martha would have been born between 1790-1800 time period.
Any help would be much appreciated.
