A Question from Gene Pennell

Does anyone remember a family named Wells that lived in the Haigler area during the 1940s & 1950s?

This question came from Gene Pennell:
...would you accidentaly know a family named Wells?

There was 3 boys and 3 girls that I know. And I think the mother was a school teacher when I was going to school. The oldest daughter's name was Margaret went to college either in Lincoln or Hastings. Margaret would be 80 years old now. I do know the names of all the boys, but there were Albert, Howard, and George.

I would like to get in touch with Margaret as she was writing and going to Benkelman to see my mother.

So, I hope that you or someone can find out for me. ..just thought that you might per chance know the family.

  1. THE CORRECT NAME IS BELIEVED TO BE ( WILL ) C.L.WILL.

    DON WEBSTER REMEMBERS CARREY L. WILL, HE REMEMBERED MARGRET, ONE OF THE BOYS ALBERT. THEY LIVED UP NORTH OF DISTRICT 42 AT ONE TIME. THE FATHER WAS ON THE SCHOOL BOARD. THEY SOLD THE FARM THEY ONCE OWNED TO KUHN'S EAST OF HAIGLER.
    THERE WAS AN AUCTION, THE FAMILY THEN MOVED TO HARVARD, NE WHICH IS EAST AND CLOSE TO HASTINGS.
    THE METHODIST CHURCH HAS A BOOK, THAT IS DATED TO WAY BACK WHEN AND IS CALLED METHODIST CHURCH MEMORIES---AND THE C.L. WILL FAMILY IS IN THE BOOK. I AM NOT SURE, BUT MRS WILL TAUGHT AT THE COUNTRY SCHOOL.
    I HOPE THIS INFORMATION WILL HELP.

    Gene Pennel was wondering about the Cary (correct spelling) Will family. On the Haigler Blog School District42 written by LaNeta Carlock talks about Cary Will married to Alice Myer. The Walter family purchased land from the Wills. I have a water right deed with Cary Will's name on it. The Will place on my dad's land had a house on it and it was moved to Haigler and Dick and Anna Wheaton and family lived in it. I remember my dad talking about the Will family. He would chuckle and tell me that Alice would wear her hose down around her ankles I'm sure it was cooler. I enjoy the Blog just learning the computer so I have a long ways to go.

    Yes, Cary Will married Alice Myer (my grandfather James' Myer niece) - One of Alice's daughters-Margaret,a ge 80, living in Harvard Care Center. Our family keeps in contact w/ her. - We have lots of genealogy info on Will family- since related to Myer family.
