Elias Wees Family History

Elias Wees was a carpenter, and later farmed on King's Run, Randolph Co., W.Va.; was a prisoner at Camp Chase.

He lived in the valley between Elkins and Beverly. During the Civil War he was working on his farm up on the hill from Beverly. They (soldiers) saw him and thought he was a spy that carried information back and forth, and they arrested him. They took him to Camp Chase, Columbus, Ohio, until after the war. While he was there he caught a disease and almost died.
