Asbell (Baby)



Researched by Faye Bell (SLC) 2012



          The Asbell baby was the infant of Sylvia Wells and her husband Richard Amos Asbell.  (The child’s gender is unknown and the baby was never named.)  Sylvia was the first-born daughter (b 1916) of Don and Hazel Wells residents of Ten Sleep.   The Asbells were living in the area at the time, but left shortly after the loss of their child.  Sylvia Wells Asbell herself died  May 7, 1995 in San Joaquin county, CA.  The father Richard Amos Asbell (b Dec . 25, 1903) passed away in 1991 in the same place.   The Wells family were members of the Seventh Day Adventist religion (Vital stats about the parents come from Find-a-Grave Memorial for Sylvia and Richard on Google.)




Memories:    I remember there was a lot of sadness experienced by the Wells family at the loss of the baby in the winter/spring of 1939.
