Delbert Bazle Wells was born 02 September 1870 in Greene County, Missouri. He was the son of Nelson Oliver Wells and Rachel A. (Gray) Daugherty. Delbert was an infant when his parents made the trip from Missouri to Sherman, Grayson County, Texas between September 1870 and December 1872. The family moved from Sherman to Brown County, Texas. It is quite possible they were there by the later part of 1880 as Delbert's half-brother, George W. Wells, was married in the county in August of 1880; and his half-sister, Mary Francis "Frankie" Wells, was also married there in 1885.

Delbert Bazle Wells married Janette Adeline "Nettie" Malone 25 January 1894 in Brown County, Texas (Book B, Page 227). She was born 27 March 1874 in Parker County, Texas. Nettie was the daughter of William Harvey Malone and Sarah Jane Norman.
