Mary Robinson Wells
b. November 14, 1762 Rhode Island

Mary, wife of Thomas Wells, is the daughter of John Robinson and Elizabeth Wells Robinson.  She is my husband's 4th great-grandmother.


  1. This stone appears to be broken into many pieces. Do you know how it was repaired? Is it something you initiated, or did you find it already like this? I'm just wondering because I've found several stones broken, but I have no idea what is involved in getting them fixed.

  2. Heather,
    I had no involvement with the fixing of the stone. It is a shame that so many of our cemeteries are being damaged these days!

  3. Hi Again. Was just looking at your other Wells info. Mary here is my 1st cousin 5 times removed! Sad her stone is a litte broken but I've seen others in far worse shape. -Jennifer from www.wellsgenealogy.wordpress.com
