#18 Rachel Wells is my 6th great grandmother on my maternal grandmother’s side. She was born on 3 May 1720 in Prince George’s Maryland to Joseph Wells and Margaret Swanson. She married John C. Wright. Rachel and her husband John were prominent Quakers. They helped to establish several Meetings as they migrated through the country. One move stands out to me. In 1749 they moved from Virginia to Mitchell, North Carolina where they helped to establish the Cane Creek Meeting. They took 7 children. Three were under the age of four. They traveled 300 miles with no wagon because there were no roads. There were probably not enough horses for each member of the family. We come from hardy stock!
