Recent Deaths in Fremont County: Wells, Maulik

John Allen Wells was born October 28, 1928, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Lola Marie Bauder and Kenneth L. Wells. John was raised by Anna Maria Peddicord (great grandmother), Ethel Renner (grandmother), and Lola (mother) in the early years in Earlsboro, Oklahoma. While in Earlsboro, as a result of owning a large luxury hotel suitable for families, they endured threats and attempts on their lives by the local “line,” (mob). The “line” was active in illegally peddling liquor and women during prohibition. John was about 3 years old when the “line” abducted him at gunpoint. He was rescued a short time later by Pretty Boy Floyd a few blocks away in a shoot-out. After the Depression hit, the family lost everything and moved to Dubois, Wyoming in 1934 with all their belongings in the car.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 6, 2019, at the Dubois Cemetery. A reception will follow at the Timberline Ranch.
