William L. Wells
Company Names, addresses, dates1:
William L. Wells, 363 M street SW (1894-1896)
William L. Wells is listed in DC directories as a Saloon owner from 1894 to 1896. He doesn't show up as a DC resident in the census, so he must not have stayed long.
An article in the March 23, 1894 Washington Post said that there was a meeting of the "Fat Men's Beneficial Association" held at William Wells' 363 M Street SW, which included a "sumptuous supper prepared by Brother Wells".
