After Henry and Rebecca Chappel Wellons, things get fuzzy because the family is out of Kentucky and in Virginia.  I believe I have the line figured out but hesitate to post it because there aren't many sources that go along with my beliefs and suspicions.  Suffice to say, the family name was almost certainly Llewellyn originally and that they descended from the Welsh Captain John Llewellyn who was the first in the line to come to America (Virginia specifically).

  1. Hi. I'm a direct descendant of John and Annamaria Wellons. You could be right about his being a direct descendant of Capt. Llwellyn, but no one seems to have been able to find any real genealogical records for John Wellons (at least to my knowledge). It's almost like he appears out of nowhere. Best. Shawn
