She married her first cousin Perry Wells on April 22, 1866 in Lincoln County, Tennessee. Perry and Minerva had eleven known children, William Woodruff Wells, Mary Virginia Wells, Dana Vesta Wells, Treacy Florence Wells, Daniel Benton Wells, Sarah Frances (Wells) VanZant, James Wesley Haggard Wells, Reuben Josiah Wells, Albert Austin Wells and Charles Ewing Wells. Perry is buried at Bald Knob Cemetery in Boone Co., AR. born Aug. 1, 1837 in Lincoln Co., TN and died Jan. 17, 1917 in Boone Co., AR. - These notes are from findagrave by Sonja Bedwell: Born in Norris Creek (Bellville), Lincoln County, Tennessee, Perry Wells was the son of William Benjamin Wells and Treasa (Treasy) O'Quinn (Quinn). He married his first cousin Minerva Jane Wells in Lincoln County on 22 April 1866. Minerva was the daughter of Josiah Wells and Elmira (Almira) Trail. Perry and Minerva were the parents of eleven known children: William Walter Woodruff Wells, Mary Virginia Wells, Dana Vesta Wells, Treacy Florence Wells, Minerva Elizina Wells (Mrs. Charles Julius Dorbecker), Daniel Benton Wells, Sarah Francis Wells (Mrs. Christopher Columbus VanZant), James Wesley Haggard Wells, Josiah Wells, Albert Austin Wells and Charles Ewing Wells. On Mar. 4, 1897 he moved from Exeter Missouri to Rally Hill, Boone County, Arkansas. While in Exeter, Perry Wells lived on a farm north of the Maplewood Cemetery. He gifted the first land for this cemetery to the Exeter community. Perry and his brother Charles Wells served in Company G, 36th Arkansas Infantry, CSA. A search of their CSA records reveals nothing unusual. Their father William Benjamin Wells also served in the Civil War. He served in Company D, 5th Missouri Infantry. He was given a disability discharge in December 1862. It is probable he died in Mississippi shortly thereafter. Perry Wells responded to a questionnaire from the State of Arkansas which was intended to take a census of Confederate veterans living in Arkansas. The information submitted was in Perry Wells own words. This is the text in its entirety: "Wells, Perry, of Valley Springs, Arkansas, was born Aug. 1, 1837, in Lincoln County, Tennessee, the son of William Wells, who was the son of Thomas and Anny Wells." My father was William Wells born in Indiana. My mother's maiden name was Trecy Quin, born in Surry County, North Carolina" Subject was a farmer, democrat, Cumberland Presbyterian, and Odd Fellow.
