DESCENDANTS OF 

JOHN WHEELER, 

CHAELES CO., MAEYLAND. 



9000. JOHN" WHEELEE. He is the only original ancestor of 
the Maryland branch of the family of whom anything is known defi- 
nitely. The time of his immigration and the place in Virginia to 
which he immigrated are matters of conjecture. The Maryland 
Archives show that a John Wheeler " denizated " in Maryland in the 
year 1662. It will be understood that the relations between the Vir- 
ginia and Maryland Colonies were such that although they were both 
of English origin, subjects of one colony could not pass to the other 
and take up any rights there without going through some " deniza- 
tion " process. There was, however, much going back and forth be- 
tween the two colonies along the Potomac and the Chesapeake, with- 
out referring to such actual systematic colonization as took place un- 
der Claibourne, or rather such as brought the contest between the 
Catholics and Protestants, the latter under the control of Claibourne. 

John Wheeler next appears in the Land Eecords of Maryland, Li- 
ber 5, folio 400, where it is recorded that '' Wheeler's Choice " was sur- 
veyed for him on Aug. 23, 1662, and patented to him July 10, 1663. 
This property was situated in Charles County and consisted, accord- 
ing to the record of survey, of 400 acres. He was first a captain 
and then a major in the Maryland Militia of Charles County. Ar- 
chives of Maryland, vol. 2, p. 551 states that he was granted 2000 lbs. 
of tobacco for services, he being mentioned at this time as " Cap- 
tain." 

In Council Proceedings, Maryland Archives vol. 7, p. 79, A. D. 
1681, Major John Wheeler petitions for an allowance of charges in 
suing out mandamus on certain land. It is recorded in the Proceed- 
ings of the General Assembly, Oct. and JSTov. 1683, Archives vol. 7, p. 
611, that John Wheeler of Charles County was appointed Commis- 
sioner for Port Towns. In Council Proceedings for I.ISS (Archives 
vol. 7, p. 386) Major John Wheeler is named Justice for Charles 
County, and (ibid. vol. 8, p. 7) the same person was appointed Com- 
missioner of Court in Charles County in 1687. In proceedings of 
the General Assembly for 1689 Major John Wheeler is spoken of as 
belonging to the Bailitia of Charles County.

DESCENDANTS OF 

JOHN WHEELER, 

OF PENNSYLVANIA. 



9300. JOHN WHEELER, the ancestor of the Pennsylvania 
branch of the family, is probably of English origin and may have been 
one of those who, during the reign of Charles I, sought refuge in Hol- 
land and later became part of the English immigration from there 
under the Holland Company (or one of the numerous other concerns 
in that country organized to transport colonists to America), which 
had received Swedish consent to settle at New Sweden and was given 
lands on both sides of the Delaware Eiver, without bounds, " except 
that they were to limit their possessions to four or five German miles 
from Fort Christina." Almost all of the vessels from Holland 
bound for New Sweden sailed under Swedish consent, as it facilitated 
the securing of land upon their arrival in America. 

The first record of John "Wheeler is when among others he signed a 
protest to Gov. Printz, dated July 27, 1653, against the arbitrary and 
tyrannical conduct of the Governor of New Sweden. His name again 
appears in a document signed by Philip Calvert, Lieut, of the Prov- 
ince of Maryland, conferring upon 15 individuals rights as " free cit- 
izens and denizens " of Maryland. He returned to Pennsylvania, 
however, and on March 12, 1677-78, Lasse Andrews petitioned the 
court at Upland to take up for John and Andrew Wheeler 300 acres 
of land " on ye Schuylkill." This petition was granted, " they seat- 
ing and improving ye said Land, according to his Honour ye Gover- 
nor's orders and regulations." 

Lasse Andrews, the petitioner above, by his will dated July 17, 
1689, devised a certain house and land, in Moyamensing, jointly to 
Michael Neilson and Andrew Wheeler, and Neilson subsequently, May 
13, 1702, conveyed his interest in the property to Andrew Wheeler. 
This may be taken as an indication that Andrews was a relative, on 
the maternal side, of Andrew Wheeler, and that his mother's name 
may have been Andrews. 

Child: 
9301. ANDREW WHEELER. 

9301. ANDEEW WHEELER, son of John (9300). The first 
mention to be found of him is in the records of the Court at Upland, 
where his name appears in a petition by Lasse Andrews for land 

537

in behalf of John and Andrees Wheeler for land. The records of 
the Commissioners of property show that in 1699 John Eoberts 
bought of Andrew Wheeler, a " Swede," a tract pf land in 
Merion containing about 60 acres. This document cites the 
above petition for 300 acres and states, " and the said John Wheeler 
having died, the said Andrew is his sole heir." The follow- 
ing reference to him is found in a list of the Swedes then on the 
Delaware, made by Carl Christopher Springer, May 31, 1693, 
and sent to the Secretary and Postmaster at Gothsberg, " Anders 
Wihler " his wife and four children. A list made in 1697-8 by the 
Eev. Andrew Eodman of the families in the parish of the Gloria Dei 
Church, of Philadelphia, Pa., and giving their residences, contains 
the entry : " From the Church down the Eiver at the Hollander's 
Creek (near Moyamensing)," "Anders Wihler," his wife Catherine 
and their children. John, aged 7 years; Andrew, aged five; Laurence, 
aged four; Anna, aged one and a half. A 2d marriage is re- 
corded for him: "Anebrew Wihler married to Ann Mary in Weca- 
cow church the Twenty third of November, 1704." He died March, 
1719-20, and his will, dated March 17, 1719-20, and proved nine days 
later, mentions his wife " Anna Mary " and five children, Andrew, 
John, Samuel, Mary and Ann.

prietary master blacksmith and iron worker. His skill as an iron- 
master was such that during the Revolution the State and continental 
governments sought advice and gave him numerous orders for arms 
and armament. 

A biographer has said of Wheeler that he was the most eminent 
iron-smith of his time in the United States, and probably equal to 
any in the world. A contemporary said that as a boy he knew him, 
admired him, went to his establishment often, and that he was al- 
ways in advance of other men in his business. Of the guns made by 
him for the Continental Army, a writer has said : 

" He made a cannon out of bars of iron by welding. It was used 
at the Battle of Brandywine, and was the wonder and admiration of 
the American officers. It was lighter than brass ordnance, and more 
accurate in distance and in effect. It was without hoops, — a con- 
tinued surface. Bonaparte took the idea from this, and had can- 
non for his flying artillery made after it. It was captured at the 
Battle of Brandywine, was deposited in the Tower of London among 
the spoils of war, and valued as a trophy. The idea was original 
with Mr. Wheeler." 

The same narrator details this interesting story of the iron-masiter, 
in his relation to the movements of the British army and navy: 

" Mr. Wheeler made a chain, to be put across the North River, to 
stop the British ships. General Washington had thought that the 
river would not be defended except by two armies, one on each side. 
He happened to say, in the hearing of General Mifflin, 

" I wish I could have a chain made, but it is impossible." 

Said General Mifflin, " I know a man that can make such a chain." 

''Who is he?" 

" Mr. Samuel Wheeler, a friend and townsman of mine." 

" I should like to see that man." 

Mifflin said, " He is here now, in the army." 

Mr. Wheeler was forthcoming, General Washington said, " I wish a 
chain made, to put across the North River, to stop the British ships. 
Can you make it ? " 

" I can." 

" Then I wish you to make it." 

" I cannot do it here." 

" Then," said General Washington, " I will cheerfully give you 
dismission from the army. Badly as we want men, we cannot afford 
to keep such a man as you." 

Mr. Wheeler made the chain. It was hauled in links across New 
Jersey. It was hung, and did good service. It was ultimately cut 
by building a fire about a link, and with a chisel and sledge-hammer. 

Mr. Wheeler made many improvements in mechanics. He made 
scale-beams that would weigh a ton, and " be set dangling by a twelve- 
and-a-half-cent piece." He made improvements in hay-scales, in. 
hoisting machines, in the cutting of screws, and generally in every- 



540 HISTOEY OF THE WHEELER FAMILY IN AMERICA 

thing connected with the iron trade. He made lanterns for light- 
houses, and attended the construction of the lighthouse at Cape Hen- 
lopen. A previously quoted writer thus epitomizes a review of his 
career : 

'•' He was a mine of wealth to his country, by his genius and skill. 
Subsequently to the Revolution, Wheeler continued his activity in all 
matters involving the public concern, becoming each year, until old 
age caused a curtailment of his vigor, more prominent and more 
influential in all movements for the advancement of civilization." 

Obituary From Poulson's Daily Advertiser of May 17, 1820. 

Died in this city, on the 10th inst. aged nearly 78 years, Samuel 
A^Tieeler. Esq. a native of the County of Philadelphia, and a descend- 
ant of the Colonists from Sweden, who arrived before William Penn. 
He was an active patriot during the war of the revolution. In June, 
1775, he assisted in the taking as prisoners. Major Skeene (the 
elder), and other officers, who were coming out in the British Service. 
They were captured on Shipboard, a few miles below the city, by a 
detachment of picked men, under the command of Capt. Bradford. 
Mr. Wheeler was the first man that mounted the deck, and thereby, 
as is believed, did the first act of open war that was committed south 
of New York. 

In the summer of 1776 he was busily occupied among the Ameri- 
can forces that were preparing on the South west end of Long Island, 
to fight the English on their landing. 

On the approach of the enemy to Philadelphia, Mr. Wheeler re- 
moved his family to North Wales, Montgomery County, and contin- 
ued to the close of the War, active, zealous and doubtless, employing 
in the service of his country, his skill and genius, without profit to 
himself — exercising hospitality to an extreme — entertaining great 
numbers of American Officers — receiving to his house almost with- 
out limit, travellers, and the destitute and sick. 

From his humanity and that of his family in taking in and pro- 
viding for a sick soldier, who proved to be ill of a disease prevalent 
in the American Army, several of his family, sickened and died. 

After the War he was elected a member of the House of Repre- 
sentatives in the State Legislature for the County of Montgomery, 
and at the time of his death, was the oldest justice of the peace in the 
County of Philadelphia, and one of the oldest members of the Ameri- 
can Philosophical Society. He Avas distinguished for benevolence, 
public spirit, active usefulness, firmness of principle, and has left 
the " recollection of a character unsullied by a single stain."

9615. MOSES WHEELEE. Married Dec. 14, 1747, Elizabeth 
Holden, of Groton, Mass. The absence of contributing facts and 
the great duplication pf given names make it impossible to de- 
termine the parentage of Moses Wheeler, who is referred to at the 
time of his marriage at Charlestown, N. H., as " Moses Wlieeler of 
Holden, late of Lunenburg." He was one of the grantees of Charles- 
town under the New Hampshire charter and was elected Highway 
Surveyor at the first Town meeting held there Aug. 4, 1753. The 
History of Charlestown, N. H., relates of him that he was called 
Ensign Moses — as he held that office in Capt. Hobbs Co. He was 
in some of the fiercest encounters of the French and Indian Wars. 
He was a soldier on the frontier as early as 1746 and was one of the 
Company of Capt. Stevens in his celebrated defense of the Fort at 
No. 4 from April 4 to 8, 1747. He was also with Hobbs in his ter- 
rible encounter with Sackett which has been described as a master- 
piece of persevering bravery. One writer says : " If Hobbs's men 
had been Eomans, they would have been crowned with laurels and 
their names would have been transmitted with perpetual honor to 
succeeding generations." 

He was a very large man, yet of very good proportions, and was 



HISTOKY OF THE WHEELER FAMILY IN AMERICA 551 

said to have been, in his prime, the strongest man on the frontier. 
One time he and five others were detailed to take a cannon to the top 
of Hoosac Mountain. It appeared a hard task to his men and they 
stood around it discussing how it should be done. At length tiring 
of their suggestions he threw out his arms, exclaiming, " Stand aside, 
boys, I am going to take this cannon up the mountain myself " ; suit- 
ing the action to the words he swung upon his shoulder and bore it 
to the place which had been designated, pausing only once for rest 
on the way." After this he became quite a hero with the Indians, 
who, thereafter, called him " The Strong Man."

13960. SAMUEL WHEELER. Born in England, 1737 ; died 

1833, aged 96. Married Barnard. The date of his arrival in 

America is not known, but it is said that he was here in time to fight 
for the independence of the colonies; and that in 1795 he walked to 
Maine with his son Jesse, going from Salem or Bradford, Mass., and 
settled in what is now the town of Greenfield, Penobscot Co., Me. 

He was a much beloved and respected man, one of few words 
but much benevolence, as sturdy as the rocks of Maine. All seemed 
to cluster about him for advice, though very careful with his tongue 
in all cases. A farmer and lumberman, not wealthy, he seemed 



HISTORY OF THE WHEELER FAMILY IN AMERICA 805 

to possess the faculty of spreading contentment. The last ten or 
fifteen years of his life he suffered acutely irpm. rheumatism denying 
him a continuance of his former activity, but being of a restless 
habit and fond of working with his hands, he took to shoe-making 
as a hobby. Many popr people in his town and surroundings were 
indebted to him for their footwear, and many people brought him 
leather from which he made boots, shoes and moccasins. He never 
would accept any pay ipv his work, though at times he would 
work through an entire night to complete a much-needed article 
for a neighbor or acquaintance. N^one came to him hungry or cold 
who did not depart feasted and warm. The " Penobscot " tribe 
of Indians adored him and his "Squaw" (wife), and always called 
him " Father Sam." In those trying times, no churches had been 
built, and the sole religious service was an " Early candle light 
meetin' " which he seldom attended, but the Elder was always en- 
tertained at his home. Though not a " meetin' " man, he always 
proved himself a Christian gentleman.

a young man was killed when getting out the last bit of timber for his 
grist mill. His wife was born at Greenville, Montpelier, Vermont. 
She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. She also died 
young. He had a previous marriage. 

Children : 

14248. BYRON ALBERTUS WHEELER, born at Prairieville, Wis., Jan. 30, 

1842. 

14249. LUCIUS WHEELER. 

14250. NORMAN WHEELER (half brother). 

14248. BYRON ALBERTUS WHEELER, son of Trueman 
(14247) and Irene (Whittier) Wheeler. Born at Prairieville (Wau- 
kesha) Wis., Jan. 30, 1842. Married at Byron Corners, Wis., Aug. 
20, 1865, Frances Amelia Noyes, who was born Jan. 26, 1841, dau. 
of Joseph Noyes and Electa (Stevens) Noyes. 

At eighteen years of age, Byron Albertus Wheeler took up the prp- 
fession of school teaching in Wisconsin. During his second term, 
the civil war broke out, and before the bombardment of Fort Sumter 
had ceased he had left his school and was enlisted in the First Wis- 
consin Volunteer Infantry for three months' service. During this 



HISTORY OF THE WHEELER FAMILY IN AMERICA 821 

first three months of the war, he took part in the battle of Falling 
Waters, which resulted in the capture of Martinsburg and Harper's 
Ferry by the Union forces. 

At the expiration of the three months' service, he returned to Wis- 
consin and spent the i^ollowing winter in teaching school and study- 
ing medicine under Dr. T, J. Patcher, of Fond du Lac. In the 
spring when a new call for reenforcements was made, he, together 
with two companions, again enlisted in the First Wisconsin Cavalry 
and served until the end of the war. 

The First Wisconsin Cavalry has gone on record as having partici- 
pated in more engagements than any pther Wisconsin regiment, chief 
among which are the battles of Chickamauga, Resaca and Atlanta. 

The official records of the State, at Madison, the Capitol, credit 
forty-five battles to the First Wisconsin Cavalry, two more than any 
other regiment from the State. The next highest of all the fifty- 
two regiments sent by Wisconsin to the Civil War was the Eighth 
Wisconsin Infantry, which is credited with forty-three. 

The private diary of A. W. Murray, of Company C, First Wis- 
consin Volunteer Cavalry, now of Chardon, Ohio, shows a total of 
four hundred and seventeen major and min,or engagements in which 
the regiment, or parts of it, participated. Thus, there were many 
engagements not considered of sufficient importance to receive official 
report. The regiment was mustered out of service July 19, 18G5. 

Byron Wheeler entered the army as a private and though he re- 
fused opportunities for promotion during service, he was discharged 
as Ordnance Sergeant of the regiment at the close pf the war. He 
was never wounded, but met many narrow escapes. A shattered 
silver watch, now treasured as an heirloom, gives mute evidence of 
the nearness of death from an exploding shell. 

At the close of the war, Byron Wheeler returned to Wisconsin and 
resumed the study of medicine, and in Sept., 1865, entered Hahne- 
mann Medical College of Chicago, from which institution he gradu- 
ated in 1867. 

He opened an office in Byron, Wisconsin, but in about a year, his 
wife's failing health made a change imperative and he moved to 
BjOone, Iowa. Here he soon built up a large practice, but his own 
failing health, four years later, led him to seek new fields in Colo- 
rado. He reached Denver, Jan. 1, 1872, where he again began the 
practice of medicine and still resides in active professional work. 

The name of Dr. B. A. Wheeler has been prominent in the organ- 
ization and conduct of vari^ous professional and political movements 
of the City and State, among which may be mentioned the State 
Board of Medical Examiners, of which he was its first secretary and 
organizer, the Colorado State Medical Society, the Homoeppathic 
College and Hospital Association (of which he was president for a 
term of years) and the Denver Homoeopathic Club, and the Denver 
Academy ,of Homoeopathy. 



823 HISTORY OF THE WHEELER FAMILY IN AMERICA 

For a number of years, he took active interest in politics and many 
movements that were of interest to farmers and the laboring man. 
Feeling that various reforms were necessary, he called together dele- 
gates from various organizati^ons in the State, with the result that 
the Populist party sprang into existence. As secretary of this organ- 
ization, the greater bulk of the work fell upon his shoulders, and 
these efforts were crowned with success at the second electipn, when 
the party's candidate for Governor was elected to office. Governor 
Davis H. Waite, the only Populist Governor, achieved fame during 
his administration in the strike difficulties, during which he received 
the qognomen of " Blood to the Bridles Waite." Under him. Dr. 
Wheeler served as a member of the Board of Charities and Correc- 
tion, and on the Board of Pardons. 

Fraternally, he is a life member of the Blue Lodge of Masonry 
and for many years maintained an active membership in the Knight 
Templar Commandery. 

At an early date, he became interested in the writings ,of Emanuel 
Swedenborg, and in 1877 became an enthusiastic member of the 
Swedenborgian Denomination, in which society he is still active as a 
leader and teacher.

14872. FREDERICK FREEMAN WHEELER, son of John Col- 
lister (14869) and Adaline (Freeman) Wheeler. Born at Oshkosh, 
Wis., Feb. 35, 1859. Married (1) at North Walden, Vt., Dec. 25, 
1879, Alice M. Amsden, who was born there Oct. 11, 1856 ; died July 
21, 1891, dau. of Burt B. Amsden and Amelia (Wolcott) Amsden. 
Married (2) at Leslie, Mich., June 6, 1893, Hattie E. Hall, who was 
born there Oct. 20, 1862 ; died Aug. 1, 1909, dau' of William F. Hall 
and Mary E. (Anderson) Hall. When Frederick Freeman Wheeler 
was five years old his family removed to Vineland, New Jersey, where 
he attended the grammar and high schools. In 1883 he removed to 
Albany, New York, where he established himself in the furniture 
business and became one of the leading business men of that city. 
He was one of the organizers and Vice President of the South End 
Bank of Albany, Vice President of the West End Building and Loan 
Association, Manager of the Terminal Warehouse Company, and vari- 
ous other business enterprises. 

He began his political career by casting his first vote for Neal Dow, 
the presidential candidate of the Prohibition Party, when his was the 
only vote for that party in the entire county in which he resided 
(Cumberland County) New Jersey, and one of only 150 in the State 
of New Jersey, and of less than ten thousand in the nation. One 
year after his removal to Albany, New York, he was elected as a mem- 
ber of the State Executive Committee of the Prohibition Party of 
New York, six months later being elected Chairman thereof at the 
age of 25, soon making a national reputation in such position, not 
only because of his youth, but because of his energy, efficiency and 
ability. He twice -declined the nomination for Governor of New 
York. In 1898 he removed with his family to Los Angeles, Cali- 
fornia, when by judicious investments in real estate in that rapidly 
growing city he added to his wealth and aided in the upbuilding of 
the " Angel City." He early identified himself with the Chamber 
of Commerce, the City Club, the Federation Club, and the Athletic 
Club, all contributing to the growth, activity and prosperity of the 
City. He served one year on the Board of Public Utilities of Los 
Angeles, the latter portion of the year as President of the Board, 
having jurisdiction over one hundred millions of dollars invested in 
the various railway, gas, electric, telephone and water corporations 
of that city. In 1908 he was supported by the delegates from sev- 
enteen states in the National Convention of the Prohibition Party, 
for the nomination for President of the United States. He still re- 
mains loyal to the Prohibition Party, never having voted any other 
ticket, believing the issue for which that party stands to be the most 
important question before the American people.

The American ancestor of the main branch of the Rolt- Wheelers 
and Wheelers of County Cork, Ireland, is Francis William Rolt- 
Wheeler, who came to America in 1893. For several generations 
past the family had been distinguished in the realm of letters and 
to this Francis Rolt-Wheeler was no exception. After a few years in 
Canada he entered upon his career as an author and editor, securing 
his early training in newspaper work. He held the position of Man- 
aging Editor or City Editor, in Winnipeg, Minneapolis and Chicago. 
Becoming interested in certain aspects of sociology he took orders in 
the Episcopal Church and after a couple of years in mission churches 
came to New York to carry out his work in St. Luke's Hospital. 

During these years in New York, Francis Rolt-Wheeler became in- 
directly associated with several departments of the United States 
government and with the support respectively of President Roose-

relt, President Taft and President Wilson, wrote a series of books 
explicative of the work of the government, each of which was offi- 
cially standardized, though written for boys. In poetry and in the 
dramatic field he has published considerably, a volume, Nimrod, at- 
tracting wide attention both in Europe and America. It was also 
during the period of his New York career that Francis Eolt- Wheeler 
accepted the Managing Editorship of several important sets of books, 
e.g.. The Science History of the Universe, The Science-Hist&ry of 
Mankind, The Fact Book, etc., etc. 

The wide success of the books: The Boy with the U. S. Survey, 
The Boy with the U. S. Foresters, The Boy with the U. S. Census, 
The Boy with the U. S. Fisheries, and The Boij with the U. S. In- 
dians led to a request frpm the New York Board of Edu- 
cation that he should give a series of lectures on these and kindred 
subjects. From these Dr. Eolt- Wheeler has branched out widely in 
the lecture field, speaking principally on literary and scientific sub- 
jects.
