Annie Raynor was the daughter of James A. Raynor, once the president of Erie Railroad. Her husband, who was a director and at one time president of the Fairbanks Company, maker of scales, died in Paris in 1926. The Wellses maintained homes in New York and Newport, R.I.; Mrs. Wells sold their fashionable estate, Chetwode, at Newport to John Jacob Astor III the year before her death.
