  • Notes 
    • L. Marion Wells - Farming and stock raising are an important source of income to the citizens of Sangamon county and in this broad land there are no richer fields or finer farms that are here found. Mr. Wells is actively connected with farming interests and has about two hundred acres of land on section 27, Salisbury township, a part of the old Wells estate. He was born in this county,
      February 28, 1854, his father being J. H. Wells, whose birth occurred in 1834.

      L. Marion Wells is one of a family of two sons and three daughters, his brother being Richard, who is married and resides on the old homestead with his brother. The sisters are Harriet, the wife of A. B. Hohimer, a farmer of Chatham; Mary, the wife of George Curren* of Salisbury; and Lelia, the wife of Marshall Grider, of Cartwright township.

      The usual experiences of a farmer boy's life were those of L. Marion Wells in his youth. He worked in the fields as age and strength permitted and in the home school was educated. He continued to carry on the home farm until he had attained his majority, after which he was married and established a home of his own in Fardner township, Sangamon county. In November, 1876, he wedded Miss Rosa Curren, who was reared and educated in Gardner township. After his marriage in 1881 he located where he now resides and has since been successfully engaged in farming and in the further improvement of his place. He now has a well developed property with good buildings, highly cultivated fields and good grades of stock.

      Unto Mrs. and Mrs. Wells have been born the following children: John H., Letha, Ada, Elmer, Floy and Charles, twins, Lelia and Leonard. Politically Mr. Wells is an earnest Democrat and cast his first presidential ballot for Samuel J. Tilden in 1876. He has been a resident of this county throughout his entire life and has witnessed great changes. He has seen timber and brush cleared away, while cities and towns have been built and the work of progress and improvement has been carried forward until Sangamon county ranks with any county in this great Union in the advantages which it affords to its citizens.
