In 1995, the local Confederate Company put a new gravestone
and a flag on James Ira Wells's grave.

The following six pictures are from that ceremony.

These are a couple of keepsakes
I got from my Mom that belonged to
my Papa (Bedford Forest) Wells: A very old pack of efferdent and his watch
(The watch still runs when wound -- even without the hands)
