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. Thank you for your assistance.
