Friday Finds

Do you have obituary clippings in you file for non-relatives? As I’m going back thru the files created when I scanned my paper files, I am finding such clippings. Today’s find is the obituary for Harold Ernest ‘Jim’ Wells published in the Topeka (KS) paper.

Unsure as to whether, Harold Wells was a cousin, I searched for him on FamilySearch.

Even though the great-grandfather of Harold Wells is Benjamin F. Wells, it is a different Benjamin F. Wells than the one in my tree. Thus, this is a random obituary that I kept which is unrelated to my tree.
