I am searching for ANY information on Vina/?Lavina Wells b. 1873 who married William Preston (Press) Gilley b. 1871. I don't know where she was born but it was possibly Powell County. They were found in the 1900 Wolfe county census but cannot locate after that. They had children Atha, Bessie, Stella, and Maggie. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Kandy Back Agee

Vina Well is my great grandmother. Stella was my grandmother. I would like to know more too. I was always told she was a Cherokee?

I remember my dad and grandmother Stella talking about Aunt Maggie. If I remember correctly when I was a kid seeing her and was she killed on a Halloween? I could be mistaken.
Would love see any pictures and I will forward you some as well. I have a picture of Press.
You can reach me here at my college address or at jr.wilding@aol.com

I guess we are cousins!

Yes she had red hair and had it that way until a few years before her death and then it was white as snow. I will send a picture of Press to you as well.
