Tames Wells came to Springfield
WELLS in the early part of the nineteenth

century and bought largely ot
real estate, afterward engaging in the grocery
business in a building opposite Court Square,
where he carried on a successful trade. He
was one of the donors to the Court Square

Court Square Park. He married, in Spring-
field. Rebecca Ames, daughter of David Ames,
the noted paper manufacturer (see Ames IX).

1861



They had three children : Mary, James and
David Ames.

(II) James (2), elder of the two sons of
James (1) and Rebecca (Ames) Wells, was
born July 21, 1820, in a block on Main street,
Springfield, opposite Court Square, his father
having a store in the building. When thirteen
years old he moved to New York City, where
he was employed as a clerk in one of the large
drug stores of Rust & Aspinwall. For two
years he was a clerk in the dry goods store of
Catlin & Company, at Hartford, Connecticut,
but in 1842 he returned to Springfield and was
soon employed by his grandfather, David
Ames, in the paper mill of D. & J. Ames. Be-
fore leaving their employ he was for three
years in charge of the paper mill at Chicopee
Falls. In 1 84Q Mr. Wells began railroad life
as agent of the Connecticut River railroad.
Soon after the depot burned in 1850, Air.
Wells went into partnership with Marshall
Besse, and for two years was engaged in the
management of the newsroom under the Mas-
sasoit House. Then for two years he was for-
warding clerk in the Boston & Albany freight
depot, but returned to ticket selling in 1856,
succeeding Horace Bartlett, ticket agent on the
south side of the River depot. There he re-
mained till the depot was torn down, and saw
the daily receipts from ticket sales more than
double. The occupation of the new station was
an event of no little interest to the veteran tick-
et agent, and he took great delight in the rival-
ry to buy the first ticket. Mr. Wells was a
prominent figure in the social life of the old
time firemen and militiamen. He organized
the old Union Battery, formed in March. 1862,
which fired salutes when regiments passed
through the city and helped to celebrate when
news of victory came from the front. The
clambakes of the old Union Battery on Allis
Park were annual events of no small import-
ance. Few old residents remember the loca-
tion of buildings and homesteads of Spring-
field Village so well as did Mr. Wells, and he
was considered an authority on old landmarks.
He took delight in telling how, when a boy, he
skated almost the length of Main street, be-
tween State and Carew, on the shallow pond
that once stood on the swampy ground east of
the present business thoroughfare. Mr. Wells
was ticket agent for the Boston & Albany rail-
road thirty- four years. He had not been in
good health for nearly six months before his
death, and had suffered much from rheuma-
tism. He seemed much improved a week be-
fore his death, however, and walked down to



the depot on Saturday. Then he suffered an
attack of heart failure and had to be carried
home. The second attack of heart failure
came suddenly March 5, 1890, and proved fa-
tal. James Wells married, December 18, 1847,
Lydia A. Patterson, who was born in Goffs-
town, New Hampshire, 1823, and sur-
vived her husband until June 30, 1904. She
was the daughter of William and Sarah
( Whittle) Patterson, of Goffstown, New
Hampshire. Four children were born of this
marriage, two of whom died in early life. Two
other sons were born : James R., mentioned be-
low; and Thomas H, for years a conductor on
the Illinois Central railroad, now a resident of
West Medway, Massachusetts.

(Ill) James Russell, son of James (2) and
Lydia A. ( Patterson ) Wells, was born in
Springfield, October 5, 1851. After obtaining
a practical education in the common and high
schools of Springfield he entered the employ of
the firm of Ray & Taylor, with whom he re-
mained until 1870, when he took the position of
clerk in the office of the register of deeds,
James E. Russell, his uncle, who held the po-
sition for many years. Mr. Wells subsequent-
ly became assistant register of deeds, and on
the resignation of Mr. Russell. 1893, he was
unanimously elected to the office of register,
and has been the nominee of both leading po-
litical parties at every succeeding election. For
some time before his resignation Mr. Russell
was in poor health and Mr. Wells was practi-
cally manager of the register's office. He had
advanced ideas about bettering the accommo-
dations, improving the indexing, and so on, in
the office, which he put in force after he be-
came register. He has always been alert for
improvements, anxious to please, and expedi-
tious in the dispatch of business, and has filled
the position so well that no candidate for his
place has received serious consideration from
either party. Although elected on the Repub-
lican ticket. Air. Wells takes no active part in
politics, and has never been a candidate for
any other office. He is a member of Brigham
Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, of Ludlow,
and in his religious views is advanced and lib-
eral, being an attendant of the Unitarian
church. He is a member of the Nayasset, the
Springfield and the Country clubs. James R.
Wells married (first) February 21, 1878, at
the residence of the bride's brother, Henry K.
Simons, of Greenfield, Mary B. Simons,
daughter of Cicero and Hannah K. (Winter)
Simons, of Springfield. She was born April
30, 1851, died June 30, 1893. They had four
