Decendants of Joseph Wells and Charity Carrington

I can only comment regarding my own lineage. John Wells, the eldest son of Joseph Wells II and Charity Carrington, remained in Orange/Alamance County, North Carolina until his death in 1826. His probate file indicates that all of his children had wagon-trained west to Indiana before 1816.

In Cane Creek MM records, Daniel Freeman Sr (father in law of John's daughter Mary Wells) had placed a request to transfer Quaker churches to Lick Creek MM in Indiana on March 4 1815. To date, no one has found the list of who was on that wagon train to Indiana in the summer of 1815. However, Joseph Wells III, Nathaniel Wells, Jesse Wells, Levi GIfford and Daniel Freeman Sr all voted in the first election held in Orange County, Indiana in November of 1816.
In 1816 John Boyd Sr. Wells, my 5th great grandfather, sold his property in Hamilton Co., Ohio, this area was known as the "SYMMES PURCHES" and officially moved to Jefferson Co., Indiana where he died in 1844.  I have researched this family for five years. Joseph Wells born 1798 in (Indian Territory) Indiana is of special interest. John Boyd Sr. Wells by my 111 Y DNA  and that of Raymond R. Wells my Y DNA are match both he and I are descended from John Boyd Jr. Wells, he from George W. Wells and I from William Aaron Wells b: 1812/14 Indiana.

I have recently connected John Boyd Sr. Wells to Thomas Wells b: 1751 Conococheague Valley, Maryland but have been unable to connect Joseph Wells born 1798 Indian Territory to but feel he is somehow related to John Boyd Sr. Wells. born 1770.
