    A record of enlistment in the Arkansas forces for the Confederate Armyappears to be for this John Wells, and matches his age and later dateof marriage in 1865 after the war.  The report of residence in LittleRock is somewhat suspect, so this may be a differtent John Wells.  Butit was not far upstream to Little Rock, along the Arkansas River, anearlier navigation route inland from Arkansas Post.
