WELLS-Mary Huffaker.Seek information on where Mary is. Can trace her through the 1929 city directory in Knoxville and then no other trace can be found of her. She married Herman Wells 9 Oct 1924 in Knoxville. Herman was murdered in Knoxville Feb 1932. His obituary does not name Mary as a survivor but does list a girlfriend, Helen Tolley, as well as his mother, Lizzie Clifton Wells. Herman is buried at Thorngrove Cem. in Knoxville but no information of Mary possibly dying before him and buried there. No trace can be found in the four divorce courts in Knoxville at that time. One piece of information recieved was that she might have went to Chattanoogna. Mary's birthdate is 18 Dec 1907. Parents were Melvin Arthur and J.V. May Atchley Huffaker. Does anyone know what happened to Mary or where she is???
