Berry Wells

Berry Wells, brother of Henry Wells of Jacksonville, Ga. amassed over 10,000 acres of land around what is now Cook, Berrien and Lowndes counties in the 1800's. Unfortunately the Civil War came and he lost most of his wealth. Henry Wells and Molsey Williams were the ancestors of most of the Wellses of Telfair County.[Photo and info courtesy of Linda Meadows of Adel, Ga.]

I wonder if this is applies to the African American Wells also. My ggg-father was Frank Wells he lived in Jacksonville from 1880 to 1920. He had a many acres of land durning this time. I'm looking for a family bible that may have been sold many years ago. If there's anyone still living that might have heard of Frank Wells, his brother's Todd, Franklin, Joe, John and Lucis. Thanks for any information anyone has

My fater in law Paul Ernest Wells is from this area. He now lives in Connecticut. Do you have any more information on Berry ? Great site.
