Connection between Robert Wheaton of Rehoboth and Laban Wheaton of Norton Ma?

Is there a connection between Robert and Laban?

Laban is founder of Wheaton College, Norton MA.

INDEED!

Here’s the lineage

Laban5 WHEATON (George4, Ephraim3, Ephraim2, Robert1) was born 13 March 1754 in Norton, Massachusetts, USA1958, and died 23 March 1846 in Norton, Massachusetts, USA.  He married Fanny MOREY 1 June 1794 in Norton, Massachusetts, USA.

And I recently was given a historical plate of the college. I will take a photo and post here shortly. One of our members has a wonderful story I hope he will share about Wheaton College and its Library.

Also many years ago I corresponded with a student from Wheaton college who put together a booklet called “Wheaton: A Visual History” which has photos of the following paintings: Judge Laban Wheaton, Fanny Morey Wheaton, Eliza F. Wheaton Strong (their daughter) and Laban’s brother Samuel Wheaton.
