COLLINGS, WELLS posted by Sandy Malitz on Sunday, February 23, 1997 

Seeking information about Abraham WELLS. He probably died in Shelby Co., KY. If before 1792, it would probably have been Nelson Co. One of his daughter's - Mary married William COLLINGS in 1789 in Nelson Co. and their first child was born in Shelby Co. in 1792. The two counties may be explained by the formation of the new county of Shelby. The family may not have moved. I realize this is sketchy information but I have hit a brick wall.
