Have quite a bit of info on Gideon and desc. Have a photo of he and the rest of Lincoln's cabinet, also a picture of Gideon Wells at the President's death bed. All my life was told Gideon Wells was a direct descendant. He wasn't. Watch out for that, often leads to wasted time and $ !!!!!! E-mail me back @ email@example.com and we'll see what I can turn up. Been a long time since I looked up Wells info. Will be happy to assist you in any way poss. Also the Welles Fam. Assoc. in CT, is a great source for info. They have published three or four "works in progress". You might want to hook up with them, as well.
