PREFACE 

More than fifty years ago Silas Carmi Wheat published a gene- 
alogy, dealing primarily with the family of Moses Wheat (c. 1616- 
1700) of Concord, Massachusetts. The early generations of his des- 
cendants were given, as far as his great-grandsons, four brothers — 
Samuel, Salmon, Benjamin and Solomon. From there Mr. Wheat 
carried on only his own direct line from Solomon (died c. 1797). 
It was his intention to publish a second volume to cover the other 
three brothers, but after his sudden death in 1922 his valuable 
manuscript remained untouched. The present compiler, also a Wheat 
descendant, had for years been working on a Wheat genealogy, and 
finally Mr. Wheat's daughters with wonderful generosity gave her 
all their father's papers, in the hope that the work might eventually 
be completed. 

This is not and cannot pretend to be a finished genealogy, but 
it appears at this time with the sole thought of saving it from the 
fate of so much unpublished material that is later scattered and lost. 
A's nothing had been added to Mr. Wheat's MS between 1922 and 
1942 when it was given to me, some families are not carried further 
than 1922 while others are brought down to the present. In order to 
avoid duplication the descendants of Solomon in Mr. Wheat's line 
are not given in detail but reference is made for further information 
to Vol. I by page. 

The names of Wheat descendants are in capitals and each has a 
number, with the possible exception of some who died in infancy or 
childhood. Children are listed under the parents, but when grand- 
children and even great-grandchildren follow immediately, the sys- 
tem of numbering may seem confused, as each generation is taken 
up separately. However, no difficulty should be found if the index 
in the back of the book is consulted. 

There may be those who do not own Vol. I, Mr. Wheat's book 
published in 1903 but may wish to do so. A limited number of these 



remain and a special price is proposed when both volumes are order- 
ed together. 

In addition to the family of Moses Wheat of Massachusetts, 
that of Francis Wheat (born probably between 1690 and 1705) of 
Maryland is included; no connection between them in England has 
been found, though it may well exist. Francis is thought to have 
come to this country in 1724, and owned a large plantation on the 
site of the present city of Washington, D.C. 

Records of several unplaced families are also included, with 
the hope that they may eventually find homes in the Wheat field, 
and quantities of items from books, magazines and newspapers, old 
and new, have been collected but are too numerous to add here. 

Since this record is not complete it is hoped that descendants 
will consider it as a framework only, to be corrected and amplified 
by them. The compiler welcomes additional information and cor- 
rections.

17 V MOSES^ born Sept. 1686; died before 1726. Mar- 

riage intentions published June 10, 1710 with 
his cousin Deborah Mansfield of Lynn, daugh- 
ter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Williams) Mans- 
field. But on Oct. 21, 1712 she married Joseph 
Ramsdell at Lynn. No further record has been 
found of Moses, and he may have been the 
JOHN WHEAT who enlisted in Her Majesty's 
military service, Oct. 10, 1710 and served in 
Major Gilbert Abbot's company at Annapolis 
Royal, and died Mar. 17, 1711 after 158 days. 
(New Hampshire State Papers). 

14 SAMUEL^ WHEAT (Joshua', Moses') was born July 31, 
1677 at Concord. Mass. and died in 1735 in Bermuda, ae 
58. He married 1 1 Lydia — , who died Apr. 6, 1720 ae 44 
and is buried at Needham, Mass. A brown headstone in the 
cemetery there is inscribed — "Here Lyes ye Body of Mrs. 
Wheat Wife of Doctr. Samuel Wheat Who Deed April ye 
6th 1720. Aged 44 years." 

He married 2) Nov. 8, 1720, Mary Chadwick who surviv- 
ed him and married 2) at Springfield, Henry Gilbert of 
Brookfield, Mass., son of Thomas Gilbert of Springfield. 
Samuel Wheat was a physician, gained distinction in his 
profession and acquired a fair estate. He owned land in 
several towns, and resided in turn in Concord, Newton, 
Watertown. Needham, Cambridge and Roxbury, Mass. On 
June 6, 1722 he "of Needham" bought from Daniel Hastings 
his home at the east corner of Brattle and Mason streets, 
Cambridge. (History of Cambridge, Lucius R. Page, p. 
576) . A smith shop was included on the property. 
Apr. 25, 1735. Samuel Wheat of Roxbury, and wife Mary, 
sold land for £100. 

It has not been discovered why Dr. Wheat was in Bermuda 
at his death, nor where he is buried, but Mary Wheat of 
Watertown, widow of Dr. Samuel Wheat late of Bermudas 
in the West Indies asked for administration on the estate, 
and on Aug. 1, 1735 Dr. Samuel Wheat of Newton (his 
son) was appointed administrator. (Suffolk Co. Probates). 
The widow accepted £166. as her dowry. The remainder 



was divided into five equal parts — two for Samuel, who 
must pay all debts, and one for each of his brothers, who 
would be Salmon, Benjamin, and Solomon. 
"Mary Wheat is Come to Dwell in the Town of Watertown 
and Now Dwels in The House of Benjn. Chadwick in sd 
Town : Shee Came Last from Newton on or about the month 
of August last past, the Selectman Refuse to Accipt hir as 
an Inhabitant ... to warn the Sd Mary Wheat to Depart out 
of Watertown. 17 Day Nov. 1735." (Watertown Records, 
III, p. 131) 

18 + i SAMUEL^ (1703-1770). 

19+ ii SALMON^ (1705/6-1788). 

20 + iii BENJAMIN^ (c. 1709-1758) . 

21 + iv SOLOMON^ ( -1796 or '97). 

22 V JEMIMA^, born May 8, 1713; probably d.y. 

23 vi KEZIAH% twin; probably d.y. 

Bond's "Watertown" calls the twins JENNISON 
and LYDIA, causing much fruitless searching 
and the thought that the mother, Lydia, might 
be a JENNISON, but the original record gives 
the names as above. 

24 vii possibly ELIZABETH^ bap. May 12, 1723, by 

the second wife. The records of the First 
Church of Cambridge give the baptism; "at 
the same time the mother Elizabeth owned the 
covenant". The name of the mother is a mistake 
or there may have been another Samuel Wheat 
with wife Elizabeth in Cambridge at that time. 

15 JOSEPH^ WHEAT {Joshua^ Moses') , born c. 1679 probably 
in Groton, Mass.; died Apr. 26, 1760 (Bond's Watertown). 
Joseph Wheat and "Pricillah" Flagg, both of Concord, mar- 
ried June 5, 1705 by Justice Minott. (Concord VR). She 
was daughter of Eleazer Flagg of Watertown and his wife, 
Deborah (Wright) , widow of John Barnes. 
He was a farmer and weaver and lived at Concord, Mass. 
in that part set off in 1735 as Lincoln. 
Aug. 8, 1700. Moses Wheat sells to "my cousin" (nephew) 



Joseph Wheat of Concord for 20/ a year, a half interest in 7 
acres. Oct. 5, 1700, John Wheat deeded to "my cousin 
(nephew) Joseph Wheat of Concord for good will' a one- 
third interest in 146 acres. Joseph's parents were then liv- 
ing in Groton. so it may be inferred that Joseph lived with 
his uncles in 1700, and that his twenty-first birthday occur- 
red in that year. 

Jan. 31, 1706. Joshua Wheat sells to "my son Joseph Wheat 
for £20 all of his land. Feb. 20, 1706. Moses Wheat deeded 
to "my cousin Joseph Wheat for care during life" all his 
land, 50 acres. Later he assigned to Joseph his right in 
land that might be granted for his military service against 
King Philip. Joseph had brothers living at the time but he 
alone received gifts of land from his uncles. 
In 1735 the General Assembly granted a large tract of land 
for military service, and Joseph in the right of his uncle 
Moses Wheat received a lot in tract No. 6, later incorporat- 
ed as the town of Templeton, Mass. In 1749 he conveyed 
a part of this land "to my beloved son Josiah Wheat" and 
in 1751 the rest to his daughter, Abigail Wheat. From 1739 
to 1748 he made four deeds to his son John Wheat of Lin- 
coln. Thus he followed the examples of his father and his 
uncle Moses in disposing of his property before his death. 

Children of Joseph and Priscilla (Flagg) Wheat, from 
printed records of Concord, Lincoln and Hollis, N.H. 

25 i DEBORAH^ born Mar. 1704/5; she has been 

doubted by a descendant, perhaps on accoimt 
of her birth date, but the date may be wrong; 
she would be named for her mother. 

26 ii ELIZABETH\ born Sept. 4, 1706. 

27 iii JOSEPH^ born Nov. 28, 1710, Concord; Joseph 

Wheat and Susanna Stoutenburg, both of Con- 
cord, married Oct. 12, 1749 by Justice Minott. 
They may have settled in Worcester county and 
raised a family including — 

74 + i) JOSEPH-^ born c. 1754; of Spencer, Mass. 

75 ii) DELILAH% born c. 1760; married Jan. 

19, 1786 at Milford, Mass. Reuben Al- 



bee. (Or she may have been a daughter 
of SALMON). 

28 iv ABIGAIL^ born Feb. 24, 1712/13; married at 

HoUis, N. H., May 1, 1754, Timothy Cook. Her 
father, Joseph Wheat, in 1751 conveyed to her 
part of the lot in tract Narragansett No. 6, later 
incorporated as the town of Templeton, Mass. 
Her brother Thomas lived at Hollis and she 
may have gone there with him. 

29 + V J0HN4, born Aug. 14, 1717; died Jan. 28, 1784. 

30 + vi JOSIAH^ born Mar. 11, 1719/20; died 1759. 

31 vii MARY^ born c. 1721/2; died 1767; married 

Feb. 26, 1738, Samuel Stearns jr., born Feb. 
21, 1714. They had 16 children; lived in Leo- 
minster and Ashby, Mass. He married 2) Lu- 
cretia Seavy, 3) Abigail Gilbert, and had seven 
more children, 23 in all but 4 died as infants. 
89 i) RUTH^ STEARNS, 8th child, born Apr. 20, 

1752 or 1755; married in 1774, Joseph 
Damon of Reading, Mass. After the birth 
of three children they removed to Cale- 
donia Co., Va. where she died in 1826. 
(See Stearns Genealogy, Van Wag- 
enen, 1901, vol. H, 58-9). 

32 + viii THOMAS^ born May 12, 1723; died Feb. 12, 

1820. 

33 ix BENJAMIN^ born Feb. 28, 1724/5; died Apr. 

13 following. 

34 RICHARD WHEAT of Boston, truckman; mar- 

ried Elizabeth Crawfort, bp. at the church in 
Battle Square, Aug. 27, 1721 and joined Sept. 
3 following. He joined the Old South Church, 
Boston, June 21, 1741. 

Mar. 10, 1761, the Boston Selectmen agree 
"that Mr. Wheat's child may be Removed from 
his house to Dr. Gardner's Hospital with Bed- 
ding Clothes, etc." They had 8 children, bp. 
1745-1762. 



Apr. 22, 1765, administration on the estate of 
Richard Wheat granted to the widow Elizabeth 
Wheat of Boston; Bondsmen, Shippie Town- 
send, blockmaker, and Saml. Barrett, Gent. 
Mr. S. C. Wheat thought he might belong in 
this family but was more likely to be a recent 
arrival from England. 

16 JOSHUA^ WHEAT {Joshua', Moses') born at Groton, Mass. 
but date not found; died Mar. 2, 1762 "at Mr. Jonathan 
Huntting's" at Needham, Mass. (Records of the First 
Church) . 

Joshuay Wheat and Elesebeth Edey (or Eddy), both of 
Watertown, married Feb. 5, 1719. (Medford, Mass. VR). 
She was born July 29, 1703, daughter of Samuel and Eliza- 
beth (Woodward) Eddy of Watertown. 
He was a physician; in 1726 as of Weston he signed with 
other heirs of his father but his name has not been found 
on any other deed, and there is no evidence that he receiv- 
ed any part of his father's estate except his portion of the 
£63 from the will of his aunt Abigail Brown. 
In 1729 they removed to Needham but were "warned out" 
and again from Worcester in the August term 1735 (Wor- 
cester Town Records, 132) . He continued to be unfortunate. 
Dr. Joshua Wheat, wife Elizabeth and 4 children warned 
to depart out of Westborough, May term 1737 (Court of 
General Sessions, p. 182) 

Joshua, wife and children warned from Southborough, 
Aug. 16, 1737 (Worcester Co. Warnings, p. 66, edited by

tor and badly managed. The son, Samuel Wheat of Prov-

and funeral, £10.8.0 due Capt. Thomas Eustis, the son- 
in-law. The heirs finally received only 3/6 on the pound.

Bailey's Conn. Marriages). She was born Dec. 7, 1710 
at Watertown, daughter of Richard and Sarah (Knight) 
Gale of Watertown, Mass. and Canterbury, Conn. She 
died between 1751 and 1757 as on Jan. 13, 1757 he mar- 
ried 2) at Mendon, Mass. Abigail White. 

When Salmon Wheat went to Connecticut with his letter 
from the Church at Watertown to the Church at Canter- 
bury he was bidden to wait under the watch and guard 
of the church until the elders and members should de- 
cide whether he, or anyone, might be received by letter 
or must come in by repentance and confession of the 
faith. In this as in all Connecticut churches the path to 
Heaven was walled up except for a very narrow gate 
through which only one person at a time was permitted 
to pass by dint of hard squeezing. Fourteen years later, 
after spirited debates during the winter, a motion to ad- 
mit to full communion those who brought letters from 
orthodox churches was "passed by a clear majority". 
Apr. 7, 1743 "at a meeting of the First Church of Christ 
in Canterbury, Deacon Backus being moderator and 
Obediah Johnson clerk, a group including Salmon Wheat, 
all producing certificates from the pastors of divers 
churches with consent of the bretheren that they were in 
full communion and regular standing in said churches 
and being recommended to the watch and care of this 
church it was voted that they (be) admitted to all church 
priviliges in this church". 

He was a weaver and is so called in 1726 and '27 when 
he and his brother Samuel buy and sell land in Newton, 
Mass. and he and his wife Marcy owned land in Canter- 
bury. In 1729 her uncles, Abraham, Ebenezer and John 
Gale quit claim to Marcy and her five sisters as heirs of 
their brother Richard Gale lately deceased their right in 
land in Canterbury. The mother of the girls, Sarah Gale 
of Canterbury, married 2) June 10, 1731 at Norwich, 
Samuel Manning of Windham.

Salmon was in Killingly, Conn, in 1745 and '46; in 
Plainfield, Conn, in 1751 ; then to Amenia, New York, in 
the Nine Partners tract, and on Apr. 30, 1764 Salmon 
Wheat from the Delaware River was warned from Men- 
don, Mass. Sometime between 1772 and '88 he went to 
Vermont and spent his last days with his son Jonathan 
probably, in Shaftsbury. 
Owing to the lack of vital records in New York State, the fam- 
ilies who went over into the counties west of the Hudson 
River are very difficult to trace, and neither Silas C. Wheat 
nor the present compiler can vouch for the accuracy of 
records of the descendants of Salmon Wheat.

He married 1) Nov. 10, (Nov. 13, Bible record) 1740, 
Grace Brown by Rev. Daniel Bliss. She was born Feb. 5, 
1720/1, Concord, daughter of John and Elizabeth (Potter) 
Brown; died Sept. 6, 1762 (in 42nd year, gravestone). He 



14 



married 2) May 2, 1764, Mrs. Abigail Smith of Concord 
(Lincoln VR) 

When the town of Lincoln was formed in 1735 he signed 
the protest against being set off from Concord, which was 
not heeded. Between 1739 and 1748 he bought four pieces 
of land from his father — two lots in Concord, one in Bed- 
ford and a farm, divided by the boundary between Lincoln 
and Concord. These farms were all left to his son Joseph 
who is to pay all legacies. On Aug. 13, 1773 he bought from 
John Hinsdale of Deerfield, Hampshire Co. for £40, 65 
acres in Conway, being part of lot # 93; wit: Selah Barn- 
ard, Samuel Barnard jr. Recorded June 30, 1785 (Hamp- 
shire, Co., Mass. LR, vol. 24, p. 677) This was bought for 
his son Benjamin. 

From a deed in 1743 he evidently occupied a part of the 
house in which his father lived, for he received "one half 
of the chimney, a door, and a foot-path". 
On Jan. 1, 1760 he petitioned the court in Worcester to 
appoint Charles Baker guardian of all the children of his 
late brother Josiah Wheat "the circumstances of my house 
being such by reason of an aged parent I have to take care 
of that I cant no ways take care of them". 
His will, dated Feb. 19, 1779: prov. Mar. 9, 1785 reads "I, 
John Wheat of Lincoln, yeoman . . . give unto Abigal 
Wheat, my now married wife, household goods, rooms and 
a garden, and yearly 100 lbs of pork, 60 lbs of beef, 6 
bushels of Indian corn, 6 of rye, one basket of malt, two 
barrels of cider, 7 bushels of winter apples, and a sufficien- 
cy of other sauce, and of fine cut wood and brought to her 
door, a horse to ride, all during her widowhood and no 
longer. To Benjamin Wheat my son one half my wearing 
apparel, one half my livestock for his services and 65 acres 
of land in Conway. To my son Joseph Wheat all land not 
otherwise given provided he executes this will faithfully. 
To my daughter Sarah Allen the house in Concord in which 
she now lives. To my daughter Betty Semple only six shill- 
lings, because she has left this state and gone as a friend 
to the enemies of this continent, to be paid only on con- 
dition that she return a friend to America. To my daugh- 



15 



ter Lucy Underwood six shillings she having already re- 
ceived her portion. To my daughter Hannah Wheat as much 
and as good as Lucy received at her marriage, or money at 
her election at the time of payment, till then she shall have 
rooms in the home with her mother. To my daughter Mary 
Semple six shillings for she has gone from this state an 
enemy to the country. Sarah, Lucy and Hannah to share all 
undisposed personal property; Joseph to be sole executor.

1776, and in July of that year both and Robert's 
wife Mary were captured on the passage from 
Nova Scotia to New York, were carried to Mar-

He and Ruth Cooledge, both of Concord, married Feb. 12, 
1744 by Rev. Daniel Bliss. She was born in Watertown 
about 1724, daughter of Jonathan and Ruth (Holland) 
Cooledge, and probably died also in 1759, as the following

'Fletcher for £500. land in Grafton and sold 52 acres of it 
to Robert Flagg for £1200, Sept. 12, 1749. On Nov. 8, 1749 
Joseph of Concord sells to "my beloved son Josiah Wheat 
of Concord, cooper", lot # 49 in Narrangansett No. 6, 
which became Templeton, Mass. This last tract was a part 
of the land awarded to Moses^ Wheat, Joseph's uncle, for 
service in the Narragansett Expedition in King Philip's War. 
Jan. 1, 1760, Lincoln, John Wheat asked the court to ap- 
point Capt. Charles Baker to be guardian of all the children 
of his late brother, Josiah Wheat of Narragansettt No. 6, 
as he could not take care of them ; they were all under four- 
teen years of age by name as follows: — Samuel, Solomon, 
Jonathan, Joseph, Daniel. The next day John petitioned 
the court to appoint Joshua Hide as administrator of the 
estate; he was also of Narragansett No. 6.

Apr. 25, 1769. John Butterick, yeoman, and Jonas Hay- 
wood, gent., surety, both of Concord, appointed guardian 
to Daniel Wheat, minor in his 15th yr. (as next above) 

Early in 1755 the inhabitants of Narragansett No. 6, alarm- 
ed by the appearance of marauding Indians in a neighbor- 
ing settlement, built a fort for protection in case of attack, 
and Sabbath worship was held there. After a few months 
they felt so secure that steps were taken to build a church 
edifice. On Dec. 10, 1755, a council "did gather a church, 
set apart and ordain the Rev. Daniel Pond, the first minis- 
ter of this plantation". The covenant was signed by twelve 
men — Daniel Pond, Joshua Hyde, Josiah Wheat, David 
Clark, Charles Baker, David Goddard, Jacob Byam, Phineas 
Byam, Zacheus Barrett, Elias Wilder, Thomas Drury, and 
John Chamberlain.

Feb. 13, 1835 ae 87 yrs. 11 mos. at Venice, Cayuga Co., 
N. Y. and is buried in the Stewart's Corners cemetery,

He married, July 14, 1766 in Newton, Jerusha Allen, born 
A'ug. 20, 1746, daughter of Dr. John and Jerusha (Cook) 
Allen of Newton. She died Apr. 2, 1825 in her 79th year. 
They settled first in Providence, R. I. but after his father's 
death in 1770 returned briefly to Newton. They accepted 
£200. for the land inherited by his father's will, signing a 
deed to that effect June 7, 1771. The executors and apprais- 
ers seemed to have erred in his favor, for when they settled 
with the other heirs they were able to pay only 3/6 on the 
pound. 

Oct. 4, 1771. Thomas Kenedy of Murrayfield, Hamp- 
shire Co., Mass. sells to Samuel Wheat of same, lot #68,

(Court of Common Pleas, vol. 12, p. 97, records at Spring- 
field) 

His next move was to Bernardston (first called Fall Town) . 
He owned land there, some of which he sold to Gershom 
Orvis in 1777; his final purchase there was June 18, 1781 
when he bought of David Page land on the northwest 
branch of Fall River. On Dec. 14, 1782 he sells to John 
Brooks of Glastonbury (Conn.) "where sd Wheat now 
lives", including a dwelling house and barn, and 2 pieces 
of 26 acres each near-by, one being south of sd Wheat's 
dwelling house. (These deeds are found at Greenfield, Mass., 
vols. HI and IV). 

From Bernardston they appear to have moved to Salem, 
Washington Co., N. Y. He is in the census of 1790 with a 
family of 2 males over 16, 4 males under 16, and 6 females, 
listed next to his son-in-law Asa Cleveland. In 1794 he is 
assessed £17. on real estate and on personal £16.15/. 

(N. Y. Genealogical & Biographical Record, vol. 43) 
Late in life Samuel removed to Venice, Cayuga Co., N. Y. 
where he and his wife spent the rest of their life, probably 
with some of their children, as no records have been found 
of his owning land. 

He was a soldier in the Revolution, with various service: 
from Aug. 1776 for 2 months as private under Capt. Mor- 
rison in Col. John Mosely's Regiment, and took part in 
the Battle of White Plains under Brig. Gen. Alexander Mc- 
Dougall. The next year he served for 6 weeks as private 
under Capt. Amasa Sheldon in the same Regiment. He en- 
listed Sept. 23, 1777, discharged Oct. 18, 1777 in the North- 
ern Dept., Capt. Joseph Stebbins Co., with 115 miles travel 
home; roll sworn to at Deerfield. 

In the summer of 1777 as Burgoyne was coming down the 
Hudson River Valley he sent a detachment to Bennington, 
Vt. When this news reached Deerfield, Mass. a company 
under Capt. Stebbins marched directly to Bennington. 
Samuel Wheat was a member of this company. They ar- 
rived too late for the Battle of Bennington but joined Col. 
David Wells' Regiment and marched to Fort Edward, later 
joining General Gates and were under the direct command 



33 



of Benedict AYnold; the company was in the battles of 
Stillwater and Bemis Heights. Burgoyne surrendered Oct. 
17, 1777, and the company was discharged the following 
day, Samuel Wheat's name being on the payroll. From the 
spring of 1778 he served 6 months in Capt. Cook's com- 
pany, Col. William Shepard's Regt. 

He received a pension, for service in the Massachusetts 
Militia, as a private, placed on the roll May 6, 1833 and 
granted from Mar. 4, 1831; he was aged 83, living in Ca- 
yuga Co., N. Y. A Revolutionary marker has been placed 
on his grave.

53 JONATHAN^ WHEAT [Salmon'', Dr. Samuel', Joshua^ 
Moses^), born Apr. 1, 1735 at Canterbury, Conn, died 
Dec. 10, 1809 ae 74 yr. 8 mo., probably at Shaftsbury, Vt. 
though one record says at Bennington. He is buried in the 
cemetery at Shaftsbury Center, Vt. 

He married Sarah Draper, daughter of James and Sarah 
(Allen) Draper of Killingly, Conn, and Shaftsbury, Vt. 
She was born Feb. 27, 1744/5 (Brimfield, Mass. VR) ; 
died c. 1827 in Truxton, N. Y. and is buried in the Keeney 
cemetery there. 

Jonathan Wheat is on a tax list of June 1758 at Crum El- 
bow, Dutchess Co., N. Y. ( Adriance Library, Poughkeepsie) 
and in 1765 is of Beekman's Precinct, the name of the 
whole district. Aug. 25, 1768 he of "Batemans" (error for 
Beekmans) Precinct bought for £15 of Moses Robinson of 
Bennington, land in Shaftsbury, N. H. (alias New York, 
now Vt.), and again on Dec. 3, 1768 bought for £80 from 
James Draper — his father-in-law — more land in Shafts- 
bury. Sept. 21, 1790 he again purchased land there, being 

35 



called "of Bennington". In two deeds in June 1804 he sold 
to his son Jonathan jr of Granville, N. Y. for S800. and 
care for life, land in Bennington on the great road that 
leads to Shaftsbury. His final deed there is dated June 22, 
1805 when he and Sarah sold to George Gay of Arlington 
for S600. (Shaftsbury LR, vols. Ill - VI). 
The purchase of 1768 at "Shaftsbury, N. H, (alias New 
York, now Vermont", took place at the time when Vermont 
was set off from New Hampshire, and New York and Ver- 
mont both claimed a narrow strip bordering on both states 
and continuing south between New York and Connecticut; 
it was known as "The Oblong". Feeling ran high, there 
were mobs and riots in Bennington and elsewhere, and 
Jonathan was forced to leave his home for fear of bodily 
injury. Two affidavits by him are given in the Documen- 
tary History of the State of New York, Albany 1851, vol. 
IV. 

Jonathan in the census of 1790 had a family of 3 males 
over 16, 1 under, and 2 females, and in 1800, 2 males 16-26, 
1, 26-45, and 1 over 45; females 1, 10-16, 1 over 45, both 
times as of Bennington. 

After the death of her husband Sarah (Draper) Wheat re- 
mained for a time in Bennington; in 1815 she and her son 
Jonathan jr. sold more of the Shaftsbury land, and on 
Feb. 5, 1819, Jonathan, then of Hampton, N. Y., executed 
a deed of gift to his mother, Sarah Wheat of Truxton, N. Y., 
what was probably the rest of the Vermont property. On 
the following July 6 Sarah sold this, 42 acres, for $400. to 
her son Richard Wheat of Truxton; wits: Reuben Risley, 
J. P., David Griswold, jr. (Shaftsbury LR, vol. VII, p. 402).

31, 1823. 

married Sept. 20, 1770 at Norwich by Matthew Graves, 
Missioner, Sarah Deshon, born Apr. 27, 1752, daughter of 
John and Sarah (Starr) Deshon of New London, Conn, (for 
her, see Christophers Family, by John R. Totten, N. Y. 
Genealogical & Biographical Record, vol. 51, p. 337) 
He gave 20 shillings for the first fire engine in Norwich, 
shortly before 1770. In May 1774 he was captain of the 

45 



2nd Company. Norwich Militia, and in July 1782 he was a 
member of the Association against Illicit Trade. A' few 
years later he removed to New London, Conn, where the 
1790 census finds him with a family of 2 males over 16, 4 
under 16, 3 females, and 3 slaves. 

June 11, 1788 Bishop Seabury, first Bishop of Connecticut, 
signed a statement that Capt. Samuel Wheat of New London 
was a member of the Episcopal Church in that town. 
May 1792, he was one of the commissioners on the Mohegan 
turnpike road, and the following Mar. 21, was on a com- 
mittee to consider buying a burying ground; it became the 
2nd burying ground. New London. 

Samuel Wheat of New London was granted a large tract 
of Fire Lands in Ohio, at Groton, Erie Co. It was originally 
part of Wheatsborough. 

A portrait of Mrs. Samuel Wheat, probably painted by Wil- 
liam Johnston, appeared in the Connecticut Historical So- 
ciety Bulletin, vol. 20, Jan. 1955.

He was a soldier in the Revolution and gave a receipt for

service (Mass. Soldiers and Sailors) . At some time his arms 
became palsied, and in the roll of men of Conway fit to 
bear arms in 1777 he is not mentioned, so it is probable that 
his infirmity had already developed. 

He lived at New Ipswich, N. H. from 1766 to about 1771,

or uncle Joseph Wheat, signed guardianship papers of his 
young cousin, Jonathan Wheat, son of Josiah, and was then 
of New Ipswich and housewright. From 1771 to 1773 he 
was at Westford, Mass., went thence to Conway, Mass. to 
1795, and in the summer of that year removed to Phelps,

Wheat, deceased, of the whole of the said deceased's real 
estate situated in Templeton, 90 acres, and a right in the 
undivided lands. 

He removed to Westminister, Vt., then claimed to be a part 
of New Hampshire. The governor of New York claimed the 
territory west of the Connecticut River as a part of New 
York, and the King supported his claim against New 
Hampshire. Nov. 1, 1770, Samuel Wheat and his neighbors 
to the number of 420 men addressed a petition to the King, 
praying for the privilege of holding the lands they had im- 
proved under grants older than the claim of New York to 
the territory, they "paying reasonable fees for the said 
permit". On Dec. 23, 1772, he was one of 160 men who 
petitioned Governor William Tryon of New York for the 
privilege of electing a representative to the General Assem- 
bly from Cumberland county. Samuel Wheat of Putney, 
Vt. — only a few miles from Westminister — "subject of 
New York" was arrested and brought to trial in Vermont 
on May 27, 1779 and fined £3, as one who refused to submit 
to the Vermont authorities. (History of Eastern Vermont,

Dec. 4, 1874; married Lucette Kidder. 

154 JERUSHA'S WHEAT (Samuel', ^ ', Joshua', Moses'), born 
April 5, 1767, probably at Newton, Mass. Her baptism is 
recorded there, with her brother, John Allen Wheat, but 
without date. She died at Jackson, Washington Co., New 
York, Sept. 29, 1838 ae 72 (sic) . She is probably buried 
beside her husband but the grave is unmarked. 
She married at Salem, N. Y. Dec. 4, 1785, Asa Cleveland, 
bom Mar. 13, 1763 in Windham, Conn., son of Moses and 
Tabitha (Spencer) Cleveland and descendant of Moses 
Cleveland of Woburn, Mass. Asa died at Jackson, Aug. 17, 
1824 and is buried in the old cemetery at Salem. In his 
family Bible he spelled his name Cleaveland. 
He served in the Revolution, private in Capt. Wade's Co., 
Windham, Apr. 26, 1780 to Jan. 1, 1781 and enlisted again 

69 



the following June for 6 months. He owned no land in 
Windham, and in 1785 went with his parents and their other 
children to Salem, N. Y. where he spent the rest of his life. 
In 1815 Jackson was set off at the south end of Salem. He 
and Jerusha must have had a brief courtship as the Cleve- 
lands did not reach Salem until Spring 1785 and he and 
Jerusha were married on Dec. 4 of that year. They lived 
next door to her father, Samuel Wheat; the house is still 
standing (1955) on the east side of Route #22 in Jackson 
and has been visited many times by their gt. gt. grand- 
daughter (the compiler of this record). 
Asa is listed as an inhabitant of Washington Co. on Dec. 
24, 1789, owning lot # 250, and on Feb. 13, 1797 he buys 
from Joseph Younglove of Cambridge, N. Y. a tract of 
1421/^ acres, lot #2 of the Ryer Schermerhorn Tract, Survey 
of 1762, later known as #1 in the AViaquashicoke Patent; 
bounds east on the Battenkill and extends to the present 
Route #22. A large rock in the river, from which he used 
to fish, is still called Asa's Rock. He appears in the census 
of 1800, 1810, and 1820, and acquired more land in the 
vicinity. Even before his death his sons Frederick and Rufus 
paid the taxes on the property which in 1825 amounted to 
246 acres. 

But the sons do not seem to have prospered, there are mort- 
gages * and sales and the matter of a suit brought against 
them in 1836 by Abram C. Lansing. Before long the family 
scattered, the three sons removing to Michigan. 

Children of Asa and Jerusha (Wheat) Cleveland, born 
at Salem, New York :

The Asa Cleveland Bible (so called) was not printed un- 
til 1828. So the entries must have been made by some- 
one else. It was owned by his oldest daughter, Jerusha

piler.

An article by William A. Richardson, jr. in Journal of the 
Illinois State Historical Society, vol. 18, p. 403: July 1925, 
"Pen Pictures of the Central Part of the city of Quincy as 
it was when Douglas and Lincoln met in Debate" has "Over 
the Hoffman store (now at 417 Hampshire Street) Dr. 
Samuel W. Rogers had his residence and it was here that 
Douglas was entertained at dinner among congenial friends, 
on that 13th day of October (1858) ... Next came the 
Hiram Rogers drug store, where Douglas passed some of 
his time and met some of his friends and admirers on that 
day". The postage stamp issued in August 1958 by the U. S. 
Govt, commemorates the Lincoln-Douglas Debates.

The youngest of ten children, he was orphaned when very 
young, and at seven years was apprenticed to Capt. Lovett 
of Lisbon (Conn.?) who did no more for the boy than the 
law required. When he came of age he returned to Norwich 
and soon after was persuaded by Col. D. W. Knight to em- 
igrate to Rome where many others from Norwich had al- 
ready gone. So in 1801 with $3.00, a gun and a pack on his 

118 



back he made the journey on foot, seeing Indians and wild 
animals west of Albany. He cleared land for Col. Knight, 
returning to Norwich in the autumn of 1802 and carrying 
letters from the settlers to their relatives in Connecticut; one 
was to John Butts, and when it came spring, he and his 
family, with Grant, set out for Rome. 

In December 1803, he and Lucy were married and lived 
happily for fifty-eight years. He was a soldier in the War 
of 1812 and marched to Sacketts Harbor, but was taken 
sick and was discharged. 

Dec. 7, 1806. He bought land in Rome from Benjamin 
Hastings and wife Mehitable of Suffolk Co., N. Y. (Oneida

and wife Lucy, with Benjamin Wheat and wife Almira (his 
eldest son), all of Rome, deed land in Rome to the Wright 
Settlement cemetery. (Same, book 199, p. 295). 
Two weeks after his eighty-first birthday he fell dead in the 
street near his home, his only other illness having been 
when he was a soldier. 

Aug. 1, 1861. Benjamin Wheat and wife Almira deed to 
heirs of Grant and Lucy Wheat, who were Elizabeth M. 
Beadle, Sarah T. Tuttle, Susan K. Wheat, Lydia A. French,

July 2, 1879, Enos Blizzard. In 1921 she wrote 
that she had had the Wheat cradle blanket and 
had just given it to the wife of her (half) bro- 
ther John. The tradition is that a King of 
France offered a prize to the one raising the 
best crop of wheat; a man named Samuel was 
the winner, the King gave him the name Wheat 
and an embroidered cradle blanket which was 
to descend from generation to generation to the 
son named Samuel. As this must have happened 
well before the Wheat family as we know it be- 
came English, one can only marvel at the dura- 
bility of the material!

to his sister Julia that he had arrived ten days 
before, that it was very warm and "it has been 
awful lonesome for the last week . . . They have 
the most students here now that they ever had 
at any one time in the world. I attended church 
twice last Sunday and this morning and I sup- 
pose there were about three thousand there . . . 
There is one hundred and twenty five in their 
choir with two violins, one bass viol, claronett 
flute and melodrium . . . Every night at six 
O'clock all the students are required to attend 
prayer meeting and it is a sight worth seeing 
to see them all marching from the hall about 
nine hundred or more, and in church it almost 
makes you dizzy to look across the church to 
see so many bonnets trimmed with so many 
differently colored ribbons and fans agoing all 
the time. It made my eyes ache this morning."

married at Newbury, Mass., Apr. 19, 1835, Priscilla Per- 

214 



kins PettingiU, born at Newbury Apr. 19, 1812; died July 
27, 1903, daughter of Moses and Mary (Perkins) Pettin- 
gill of Newburyport, Mass. The Lowell, Mass. VR give the 
marriage intentions of A'bijah of Lowell and Priscilla of 
Newburyport as Aug. 26, 1832. 

He was a Baptist minister and physician, spoke French and 
German fluently and knew Latin, Greek and Hebrew, 
though he had little schooling. As a lad in Essex, Conn, he 
learned French from a tailor in exchange for English, and 
when the tailor moved to French Canada, Abijah went 
with him, and later preached to French Canadians in their 
own tongue. 

In 1835 he was in Glastonbury, and soon after was in 
charge of a Methodist church there; in July 1838 he was 
in Willimantic, then pastor of Baptist churches in Clinton 
and in Branford, Conn. In November 1848 he was called 
to the North Baptist Church in New York City. While there 
an epidemic of cholera occurred, and on account of over- 
work in caring for the sick during a very hot summer, he 
broke down and was forced to take a vacation. On his re- 
turn he resigned and became pastor of the Second Baptist 
Church in Philadelphia in 1853. Being injured in a rail- 
road accident, he spent several years in Georgia and 
Alabama for his health, going then to the Baptist Church 
in New Britain, Pa., remaining to about the close of the 
Civil War. When party feeling in his congregation ordered 
him not to pray for the President of the United States he 
resigned his charge. He organized a church in Coatesville, 
Pa. and was for a short time connected with churches in 
Milton, Watsontown before settling at Sunbury. Soon after 
he retired as a preacher and practiced medicine until 1876 
when he had a stroke of paralysis.

Conn.; living in 1921 in Philadelphia; mar- 
ried at Gwynedd, Pa., June 4, 1865, Edward 
Furman Baldwin, born Oct. 22, 1847, son of 
Rev. Norman B. and Caroline Baldwin. They 
settled in Philadelphia, where he was a real 
estate lawyer; he became a licensed Baptist 
preacher, was ordained in 1880 at Asheville, 
N. C. and was pastor of the 1st Baptist Church 
at Greensboro, N. C. In 1884 they went to 
Morocco as missionaries to the Mohammedans; 
she had studied at the Woman's Medical Col- 
lege in Philadelphia and proved a valuable aid 
in the Mission. They were not sent out by any 
organization but when they reached England, 
the North African Mission Society to the Ber- 
bers promised them a house but no further 
support. They had with them their nine child- 
ren and an adopted daughter, "Mamie" Dyson. 
In 1889 on account of overwork and illness, 
Mr. Baldwin resigned, took the four younger 
children and settled in Jerusalem, Palestine; 
in 1921 he and the daughter Anita were still 
there. In 1890 Mrs. Baldwin wrote a tragic 
letter to her sister: "I cant remember, but sup- 
pose I told you I was going to the Woman's 
College this year" — she was back in Philadel- 
phia — "trying to drown my heartache in study 
but tis uphill work. And doctor told me this 
morning I was far more fit for the Hospital 



216 



than the college. We have sixteen lectures a 
week besides all other work which will increase 
from week to week but I thought this was the 
best use I could put Uncle C's money to. It 
will about consume it by the time the year is 
finished and if Ned's poisin (sic) ladened let- 
ters dont stop I may have to give up the attempt 
here". In 1900 she went to South Africa; in 
1904 she spent five months in Jerusalem in 
charge of the Shemlin Training School for 
Syrian girls, in the Lebanon mountains, and 
under the British Syrian Mission. After a few 
years there she returned to the mission in 
Africa, working there until 1917 when she 
retired. 

"Uncle C's money", to which she refers, was a 
legacy of $500. left her by her father's brother, 
Cornelius Richardson Wheat.

He was a painter and decorator and lived in Oberlin, Ohio

Danforth in 1896 wrote to Silas C. Wheat of the move to 
Ohio. "William Wheat started from St. Albans, Vt. with 
two spans of horses and double wagons early in the spring 
of 1834 with my two brothers and uncle Otis Wheat and 
two other men to come to Cleveland, Ohio, but leaving his 
family to come later by other conveyance. They were over 
three weeks getting to Cleveland. The cholera raged there 
all that summer, which delayed the family until fall. The 
picture is as clear before my eyes as if but yesterday. I 
wasn't twelve for I came for half fare. 

The first of October we started ; the grand old hills around 
St. Albans were white with snow. All were seated in a dou- 
ble wagon with not very limber springs for the ride of 

257 



three miles to the bay — then by steamboat to Whitehall 
having a very boisterous passage. From there to Buffalo by 
canal boat in four or five days. Then another steamboat — 
the Erie — heavily laden and a rough sea. We nearly perish- 
ed and I need not say how glad we were to set foot on 
terrafirma once more. Cleveland was a place of six thou- 
sand inhabitants. There were no fine viaducts across the 
river — only a floating bridge lay on the water. There 
were only three churches. . . "

FRANCIS WHEAT OF MARYLAND AND DESCENDANTS 

1 FRANCIS^ WHEAT was born probably between 1690 and 
1705 in England. Little has as yet been discovered about 
him, his ancestry in England, where and when he was bom, 
or when he was married and to whom. Descendants believe 
that he came from England in 1724. 

It is known, however, that in 1752 he leased from Benedict 
Calvert a tract of land in Prince George County, Maryland, 
for the term of his natural life and the lives of his sons, John 
and Francis jr. The land was in that part of the county that 
later became the District of Columbia; he named his home- 
stead Cool Spring Plantation, now the site of the Navy Yard 
in Washington. 

In 1753 he leased to his son John 100 acres of the plantation 
and in 1769 another 100 acres to his son Francis jr. Whether 
there were more children is not known.

cles of Border Warfare," p. 225, says that during the siege 
of Fort Henry (Wheeling) in Sept. 1782, 30 men and several 
women defended the fort against Indians led by Simon 
Gerty. Betsy Wheat did good service in loading guns and in 
firing at Indians; married 2) Mrs. . . . Shriock, and 3) Mary

In 1793 the Commissioners of the city of Washington sold 
to James Greenleaf 3000 public lots in the newly-plotted 
Capital for 25 pounds for each lot; he agreed to build ten 
houses each year, thinking that when the Government was 
established there in 1800 there would be a great rush to set- 
tle in the new city. A syndicate was formed, controlling 
over 7200 lots, and a row of houses was built on 4th Street 
SW. the first row in Washington. It was long known as 
Wheat Row from John Wheat who bought and occupied 
the north house, the original tenants of the others being 
Judge Cranch, Capt. Duncanson, and Samuel Eliot. The 
houses are now numbered 1315 to 1319 Fourth St. SW 
(from an article "Wheat Row, the Oldest Row of Buildings 
in Washington", in the Washington Times, Dec. 6, 1903). 
Three of the houses were owned and occupied later by the 
Barney Neighborhood House.

He was an Episcopal clergyman, Knight Templar, Knight of

His daughter says he was the first white child bom in Wash- 
ington after the city became the seat of government for the

Wilmer at Alexandria, and at the same time opened a suc- 
cessful private school. In 1825 he was admitted to Christ 
Church by Bishop Moore, and in 1826 made a presbyter by 
Bishop Kemper at St. Paul's, Baltimore. In 1827 he became 
rector of a church in Wheeling; 1835-'38, rector of St. Paul's, 
New Orleans; 1839-'49 at Nashville; 1849 to '60 Professor 
of Rhetoric at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill;

Lazarus, Memphis, Tenn. He wrote "Preparation for the 
Holy Communion", was often delegate to the General Con- 
vention of the Episcopal Church, and the University of 
Nashville conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Divinity 
in 1846. 

A nephew, Stanley H. Wheat wrote in 1922 that his uncle 
had written to them for a parchment showing a land grant 
of Chinkapin Hundred, Battle Old Field, Maryland and giv- 
ing a brief history of the Wheat family for 230 years, but the 
document could not be found.

Johnson Dorsey, daughter of Ely Dorsey of Bloomsburg, Md. 
His boyhood was spent on the homestead in the Navy Yard; 
he studied law at Annapolis under Judge Murray and was 
admitted to the bar before the autumn of 1830, living mean- 
while in the Judge's family. While there. General Lafayette 
came to this country and was entertained by the Judge, in 
1824 or '25, and James was introduced to him. 
In the summer of 1830 he set out to join his brother Samuel 
at St. Louis, who was a trader with Santa Fe, New Mexico 
but when he reached Wheeling he found the river closed by 
ice, and while waiting for Spring he was appointed Town 
Clerk and was practicing law. He did not continue the 
journey to St. Louis but became a prominent figure and 
maker of history in Wheeling and western Virginia. 
In 1861 he was Adjt. General and on July 8, President 
Lincoln wrote from the Executive Mansion to the "Hon. 
Sec. of War, My Dear Sir. Please lose no time in giving an 
interview to Adjt. Genl. Wheat of Western Virginia and 
furnishing him, if possible, with what arms, equipage etc. etc. 
he needs. This is very important and should not be neglect- 
ed or delayed. Yours truly A. Lincoln.

examined him and invited him to remain there until recover- 
ed, living in the house with the family, and when he could 
travel the Doctor gave him a remaining old horse and him- 
self guided Craig by roads where he would be least apt to 
fall into Confederate hands. Craig never forgot this kindness

86 CHATHAM ROBERDEAU^ WHEAT {Rev. John Thomas'', 
Thomas^, John^, Francis'), born Apr. 9, 1826, Alexandria, 
Va.; killed in the Battle of Gaines Mills, June 27, 1862. 
"Major Bob Wheat", soldier, knight errant, filibuster. In 
1845 he was a law student in Memphis, Tenn. but when the 
call came for volunteers for the Mexican War he was the 
first in Memphis to enlist. 

His sister, Mrs. Shober, wrote as follows on May 20, 1896: 
"The eldest son of Rev. John Thomas and Selena Blair (Pat- 
ten) Wheat whose life was most eventful and romantic. En- 
tering the army at nineteen he fought gallantly £J1 through 
the war with Mexico. After that war was ended he remained 
in Mexico, giving his services to the Liberals, entering the 
city of Mexico with two victorious armies — first with Gen. 
Scott, afterward with Alverary. 

While still in Mexico he heard that Walker, his old friend 
and classmate, was in dangerous condition in Central Amer- 
ica. He organized a relief force and went to the rescue, but 
was captured by the English and failed in the attempt. He 
then went with Lopez in the first expedition against Cuba. 

The expedition failed, and they escaped with great difficulty. 
He then went to Italy and there gave his services to Gari- 
baldi. In this war he was called the "Murat of AYnerica" on 
account of his perfect fearlessness on the field of battle. Last 
of all he gave his best and bravest service to the Confederate 
army and after 11 months of unusual gallantry he laid down 
his life at Gains Mill, June 27, 1862". 

His monument in Hollywood cemetery, Richmond, bears this 
inscription: "Chatham Roberdeau Wheat, son of Rev. J. T. 
and Selena Patten Wheat bom Alexandria Virginia April 9, 
1826; Soldier of Freedom; Col. in U. S. Army in Mexico 
under Gen. Scott, 1847; Commissioned Col. by Junta in 
Cuban War with Spain; Champion of Italian Liberty and 
General under Garibaldi; Member of Bar & Legislature of 
Louisiana 1848; Major Confederate States Army; Organized 
and Commanded battalion "Louisiana Tigers". Distinguish-

UNPLACED FAMILIES 

In Vol I Mr. Wheat has included THOMAS WHEAT (1816-1867) 
who came from England and settled in Illinois, in 1849. He had five 
sons, one of whom went to New Zealand, another to California, the 
others remaining in the middle west. Some of the stray Wheats may 
belong among his descendants. 

Among the Unplaced Families in the South, the almost complete 
lack of dates makes it difficult or impossible to place the members 
with any degree of confidence.

District, South Carolina, with a family of himself, 6 males under 
16 years, 3 females, one other person, and 2 slaves.

APPENDIX A 

JERUSHA ALLEN (174-6-1825), wife of SMIUEL WHEAT of 
the fifth generation in this country, lies beside her husband in a 
quiet, overgrown burying ground in Cayuga County, New York. 
Her husband had been a soldier in the Revolution, and they and 
their growing family of ten children had during the years migrated 
gradually from eastern Massachusetts into central New York, where 
both died and are buried. Jerusha probably lived the life of her 
time and station, and until about twenty years ago her present-day 
descendants in the vicinity knew little or nothing about her, certainly 
nothing of her amazingly distinguished ancestry. One wonders 
whether she had the faintest knowledge of it herself; she probably 
knew a few generations back, in this country, but very likely nothing 
of her ancestors abroad. 

Her father, Dr. John Allen (1718-1758) of Newton, Massachu- 
setts, was son of John Allen, a Boston merchant whose parentage 
has proved baffling but whose wife was daughter of the third Dr. 
John Clarke, graduate of Harvard in 1687, Speaker of the Massa- 
chusetts House, and grandson of an earlier John who was the first 
of a line of seven generations of Dr. John Clarkes; he performed 
the first trepanning oi>eration in this country, and his portrait, hold- 
ing a skull and instrument is now owned by the Massachusetts Med- 
ical Association in Boston; he died in 1664. The wives of these 
three John Clarkes belonged to Boston families — Shrimpton, Oliver, 
Newdigate, Saltonstall and Bulkeley. On her mother's side Jerusha 
had Cooks, Flaggs, Ripleys, Hobarts, and Bradfords, her great-grand- 
mother being Hannah Bradford, granddaughter of Governor William 
Bradford of Plymouth. 

On the other side of the Atlantic Jerusha's ancestors are traced 
through Charltons and Grosvenors to Elena de Quincy, granddaugh- 
ter of Saher de Quincy, Earl of Winchester and Magna Carta Baron; 
to William de Longespee, Earl of Salisbury and natural son of King 
Henry H, whose parents were Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou 
and Queen Matilda of England; to William the Conqueror; to Alan, 
Lord of Galloway, whose wife was daughter of Reginald, Lord of 
the Isles; to Ethelred the Unready, King of England, who married 
Emma, daughter of Richard the Fearless, duke of the Normans. 
Ethelred and Emma were parents of Edward the Confessor, and 

374 



after Ethelred's death she married Canute, King of Norway and 
Denmark, and later of England. Other ancestors in Britain were Al- 
fred the Great, Kenneth MacAlpin of Scotland; Fergus I; Ungust, 
King of the Picts, and Cerdic, King of Wessex. 

On the Continent the ancestry is no less spectacular, including 
the Capetian Kings of France; and to Pepin d'Heristal through his 
son, Charles Martel to Charlemagne ; to Henry I whose wife was Anne 
of Kiev, descendant of Ruric, Grand Duke of Novgorod and Kiev; to 
Baldwin, Count of Flanders; to Olave III, first Christian King of 
Sweden; Henry I of Germany; the Italian Dukes of Spoleto; Dukes 
of Burgundy; to St. Olaf of Norway; to Kings of Jutland — Den- 
mark and Norway; and many noble families of France. One could 
go on indefinitely. And all this belonged to Jerusha Allen Wheat of 
Venice, New York. What would she have thought? 

There are many sources for this information by students of 
medieval genealogy, and a few are:

of Elizabeth, daughter of Edward IV and wife of Henry VII 
of England, "Heiress of the Plantagenets".

APPENDIX B 

In 1921 Lewis McLellan Wheat (1084) instigated a suit to set- 
tle the estate of his uncle, Samuel Wheat (478) of Scipio, New York, 
who had died childless and intestate on Feb. 7, 1879, leaving a widow, 
Martha M. Wheat (who had recently died, in 1920), brothers Hiram 
V. and William H. Wheat, and the heirs of his brother, John A. 
Wheat, and sisters Martha Gibbons, Harriet Aikin, and Elizabeth 
Williamson, deceased. 

The document sent to the heirs in 1921 lists 57 persons in ad- 
dition to several wives who are named, and it has been of the great- 
est help in identifying the members of this large family.

INDEX 

This index includes all names appearing in the book, except 
military officers under whom service was given, and business firms. 
The wives of Wheat men are given under both maiden and married 
name. 

The date of birth of those named Wheat or Wheet, where known, 
is given in ( ) but if the date is uncertain or is of baptism merely, 
it appears as ( ) ?. 

Each descendant of Moses Wheat and of Francis Wheat has its 
individual number, but the figures in the index refer to the page on 
which the name appears. Names on pages 346-370 are descendants of 
Francis Wheat of Maryland.
