     Darius E. Heald, son of Nathan Heald and Rebecca Wells, was born on January 27, 1822 in O'Fallon, St. Charles County, Missouri.1
Fort Zumwalt. Home where Darius Heald was born and lived for over 60 years

He lived with his parents, Rebecca and Nathan, in 1830 in St. Charles County, Missouri.2
Based on age, Darius E. Heald was probably listed on the 1830 U.S. Census at Missouri as a free white male, five and under ten years old and residing with Nathan Heald.2
Darius E. Heald and Rebecca Wells lived in 1840 Dardenne Township, St. Charles County, Missouri.3
Based on age, Darius E. Heald was probably listed on the 1840 U.S. Census at Dardenne Township, Missouri, as a free white male, ten and under fifteen years old and residing with Rebecca Wells.3
Darius married Caroline Virginia Campbell on November 5, 1846 at Missouri.4
Darius lived with his parent, Rebecca, in 1850 at District 78 in St. Charles County, Missouri.5
Darius was enumerated with his parent Rebecca Wells on the 1850 U. S. Census for District 78, Missouri. He was listed as a 27-year-old male born in Missouri.6 His wife, Caroline, died in 1853.7
Darius married Martha Ann "Mattie" Hunter, daughter of Edward Hunter and Elizabeth Gwatkin, on November 22, 1860 at Missouri.1,7
Darius E. lived in 1880 at Dardenne Township in Missouri residing with him were, his children Eliza, Ednwina, Rebecca, Martha and Frances.8
Darius E. was a farmer in 1880 at Dardenne Township, Missouri.8
Darius is a head of household on the 1880 U. S. Census. He was identified as a widowed 58-year-old male born in Missouri. His father was born in Massachusetts and his mother in Kentucky. Enumerated with him were:, his daughters Eliza Lillian, Ednwina, Rebecca Nina and Frances Otay.8
Darius built a home on the property which was named Stony Point Plantation.9
Darius Heald was born in Jacob Zumwalt's homestead fort on January 27, 1822. His parents, Nathan and Rebekah Heald, had purchased the property from Jacob Zumwalt for $1000 in 1817. Nathan and Rebekah's three daughters all died before the age of twenty-two but their only son, Darius, lived in the old Zumwalt cabin for most of his life.
In 1884 at the age of 62, Darius built an imposing brick home near the old homestead Fort which he named "Stony Point." Laurent Torno Jr., a local architect renowned for historic preservation, described the original house as "German-Italianate-Victorian." The home is a big farmhouse, "basically German in its severity," says Torno. Although the Healds were not German immigrants, many builders and craftsmen in the area were.

he house has a hipped roof, similar to other 19th century brick buildings in downtown O'Fallon. In photos of the original house, the Italian influence could be seen in the details of the supporting columns of the porch and the railing on the balcony. When it was finished in the 1880's, the house must have seemed like a palace to Darius Heald, compared to the log cabin he'd lived in for 62 years.
Torno noted some unusual features of the house such as the graining, or painting of the interior woodwork to resemble more expensive wood. Secondly, the Healds burned coal instead of wood in their fireplaces. German immigrants, who came from an area where wood was very precious, thought wood burning was wasteful.
The Heald Home, nearly destroyed by tornado in 1915.
Darius Heald passed away in 1904 at the age of eighty-three. In 1915, the upper story of the house was destroyed by a tornado. The family began the rebuilding process by gathering bricks blown into the yard and when it was repaired, the house stood about 12 inches shorter than when it was first built. Darius' descendants sold the property in 1916 and over the years, it had a number of owners. Eventually the house fell into disrepair until the City of O'Fallon and the O'Fallon Community Foundation restored it in 2001. You can learn more about the entire Heald Family by visiting the Reading Room.

Father*Samuel Wells2 b. September 16, 1734, d. August, 1781

Samuel Wells
     Samuel Wells, son of Samuel Wells and Elizabeth Haden, was born in 1754 in Prince William County, Commonwealth of Virginia.1,2
Samuel Wells was born in Stafford County, Virginia in 1754. He was the oldest of the 10 children of Samuel Wells and Ann Farrow Wells; and he was the third generation born in the Colony of Virginia. The Wells family came from Wales, England to Virginia in 1635. Samuel Wells' parents, and family, moved to Pennsylvania in the early 1770's and to Jefferson County, Kentucky in 1775 and 1776.
Samuel Wells outlived his first two of three wives, Mary Rebecca Pope and Mary Spear. His third wife was the widow Margaret Audrain Hoffmann. Samuel Wells and Mary Pope had one child, Samuel, who died at birth. Samuel Wells and Mary Spear had seven children: Margaret, Mary Elizabeth, Rebecca, Samuel, Levi, George and Ann Farrar. Samuel Wells and Margaret Audrain Hoffmann had six children: Peter, Fanny, David Barton, Caroline, Charles and James. The first nine children were born in Jefferson County, Kentucky. The last five children were born in St. Charles County, Missouri.
"     Samuel Wells and his father both served in the Revolutionary War in the western regions. His father was killed in battle in 1782 in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Records in the Virginia State Archives indicate Samuel Wells served in the Revolutionary War as a Lieutenant under Col. George Rogers Clark in 1780. The History of Kentucky by Lewis Collins, 1882, indicates Samuel Wells served in the Revolutionary War as a Captain under Col. John Floyd in 1781. It is recorded that in 1781, 25 men under the command of Col. Floyd were attacked by approximately 200 Indians. About half the men were killed and Col. Floyd was on foot being pursued by Indians and near exhaustion when Captain Samuel Wells dismounted his horse and gave it to Col. Floyd, and ran by his side to support him as they made their escape.
     In the 1780's, Samuel built a station known as Capt. Samuel Wells' Station near Squire Boone's Station (now Shelbyville) Kentucky. After the Revolutionary War, Samuel Wells and family lived in Jefferson County, Louisville, Kentucky until 1817. Samuel was appointed a Major of Kentucky mounted volunteers in 1792. He served in the House of Representatives of Kentucky representing Jefferson County in the years 1795, 1796 and 1799. In 1799, he was appointed a Brigadier General in the Kentucky Militia. In 1804, he was appointed a Major General in the Kentucky militia.
     In the book entitled Kentucky in the War of 1812 written by Anderson Chenault Quisenberry between the years of 1912 and 1915, it is stated that upon declaration of war (the War of 1812) by the President of the United States, James Madison, the President called for a militia of 100,000 men and assigned a quota of 5,500 men for Kentucky. 7,000 men enlisted in Kentucky. Samuel Wells recruited a regiment of "regulars" in Kentucky and was appointed its Colonel by President Madison. The regiment was known as the 17th U.S. Infantry. This military service is shown on Samuel Wells' tombstone. The 17th U.S. Infantry saw significant action in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Canada. Colonel Wells went on to command the 11th Cavalry Regiment in 1814. Samuel Wells and his brothers William and Charles, son Levi, and sons-in-law James H. Audrain (for whom Audrain County, MO is named; and husband of daughter Mary Elizabeth Wells) and Nathan Heald (husband of daughter Rebecca Wells) served in the War of 1812. Samuel Wells was presented a sword by General William Henry Harrison (who became President 30 years later) for his bravery and military tactics during the Battle of Tippecanoe. Brother Capt. William Wells was killed at Fort Dearborn (now Chicago, IL), son Ensign Levi Wells was killed at the Battle of Raisin River (today Monroe, MI).
Son-in-law Major Nathan Heald was the commandant of Fort Dearborn and was severely wounded (he was shot through the hips, and never fully recovered), and daughter Rebecca Wells Heald was severely wounded (shot 6 times; some accounts also say she was scalped). Nathan and Rebecca both survived their wounds, were taken prisoner, and escaped. A friendly British Officer helped Major Heald escape and a friendly Indian Chief purchased Rebecca Wells Heald's freedom. Nathan and Rebecca came to St. Charles County in 1817 with Samuel Wells and family and purchased Fort Zumwalt; they called it home until they died. Major Nathan Heald's and Rebecca Wells Heald's tombstones are located right by Samuel Wells' tombstone. In the Jefferson Memorial Building in Forest Park in St. Louis, under the auspices of the Missouri Historical Society in 1915, two bronze tablets were erected bearing the names of Distinguished Missourians. Among the names listed on the bronze tablets are Samuel Wells, Nathan Heald and Rebecca Wells Heald.
In 1816, Samuel Wells purchased land in St. Charles County. At the age of 63, Samuel and his wife, Margaret, departed Kentucky for St. Charles County, Missouri in March, 1817. They lived the remainder of their lives in St. Charles County. The Wells home was located where the Fred Weber quarry is located today at I-70 and Brian Road near O'Fallon. Samuel Wells in St. Charles County was a farmer and stock raiser. Samuel Wells prospered in St. Charles County and ended up owning over 1,400 acres north of Peruque Creek, nearly 1,000 acres west of Peruque Creek, and 350 acres in Lincoln County near Troy. He served as a St. Charles County Court judge in 1826 and 1827. Some accounts also state he served as a Missouri State Representative for St. Charles, County. Throughout his life, Samuel Wells served his country and local community. This dedicated son, brother, husband, father, soldier and statesman died at his home in St. Charles County on July 25, 1830 at the age of 76. He was buried on his farm. His grave was relocated in 1966 to the Mount Zion Cemetery, O'Fallon, Missouri. Wellsburgh, MO, which was located near St. Paul but is no longer in existence, is believed to have been named by German immigrants of the 1840's for Samuel Wells who had previously owned over 1,200 acres of land in that area.
