I am sorting through Census Records.
I'm not sure if these are our WELLs', but I believe they are.
They should all be related since they lived in the same area.

Same Page on the 1920 Census --- 4 houses over From the Mills.
Imagine looking at the houses on the road:
1st Mills, 2nd Gossett, 3rd Higgs,

4th House is
KIRBY Family
Walter KIRBY is in this household,
After Aaron Burr
MILLS died in 1931 from Heat Stroke, Strawdie Bell [CARMODY] MILLS a Widow, married Walter KIRBY & had 1 child by him who is still living and has children of his own.
Walter died by the by or before the 1970's that I know about.
So this is Walters parents & himself in the Census for 1920.

NOTE for my Uncle!!!! Hey, ***Uncle R*** Or Living KIRBY
This is what I've found on your daddy & their family so far!
