WELLS, LEWIS (1813~1899) Lewis Wells, Republic of Texas and Confederate veteran, was born in Tennessee in 1813. He came to Texas in 1835, and served as a private in the Republic of Texas Army with the Jasper Volunteer Company. He rendezvoused at Jasper from March 23, 1836, to July 26, 1836, by order of James Chesshire. He also served in the Confederate Army with Company C, 4th Texas Infanry, Hood's Brigade. He was then transferred on October 26, 1861, to Company I, 5th Texas Infantry. He was wounded in the foot at Gaines Mill on June 27, 1862.
