Information on Circular chart sent by Bonnie WHEATON 12/2004

Joseph was unmarried and died before his father Robert

Information from Kelly WHEATON 7/2012

It is assumed the first children were born in Salem as it is assumed that Robert and Alice were married there. However there is absolutely no proof. They could have been born in Weymouth or Marblehead. All we know is what scant record of Robert in Salem where he was NOT a member of the church there so his marriage and christenings were not recorded.

Information from a letter sent by Bart SAXBE to Kelly WHEATON 23/4/2013

The letter was from Nathaniel WHEATON to his cousin Isaac and written in 1785

Generation No. 2

2. Christopher2 WHEATON (?Robert?1)17,18 was born Abt. 1646 in Salem, Massachusetts, USA or Rehoboth, Massachusetts, USA (He is probably NOT a son of Robert)19, and died March 20, 1683/84 in Hull, Massachusetts, USA Age 3920,21,22. He married Martha PRINCE23,24,25 1674 in Hingham, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts, USA26. She was born August 10, 1645 in Hingham, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA27,28, and died Unknown.

Christopher has been moved to child No. 1 in this family as we are still unsure as to whether he was a child of Robert and Alice and we wanted to show this in some way; this seemed the only way to do it.

Occupation: Mariner, Fisherman30

All information for Judy KNEE sent via Jarel WHEATON 14/3/2001

Various messages between JKW and Richard THOMAS about the fact the Robert’s son Christopher was not mentioned in his Will, nor were any of his descendants

Latest information received from David J WHEATON 19/9/2004

This is based on details from Nathaniel WHEATON (Robert’s great-great-grandson). It does not contain any information about there being a son Christopher. However, as I have descendants for him I have left him as Robert’s son. I should be pleased to hear from anyone connected to this line so that we can clarify the problem and so provide accurate information.

Addresses

1675       Hull, Massachusetts, USA

Soldier in Captain JOHNSON’s Company during the Indian War

Information on Circular chart from Bonnie WHEATON: Christopher does not appear

Nor has he appeared in the information received from Philip BEDIENT, nor is he in J B BULLOCK’s Rootsweb World Connect information. George W WHEATON does not have him in this family either

Note from Kelly WHEATON GEDCOM 9/5/2011

Some have questioned whether Christopher was a son of Robert WHEATON because he is not mentioned in his father’s Will. Christopher died before his father and lived far from the rest of the family so this does not prove or disprove the relationship.

Inventory: £79. 7s. 6d29

Will: May 6, 1684, Boston, Massachusetts, USA31,32

Child of Christopher WHEATON and Martha PRINCE is:

She was born 1658 in Rehoboth, Massachesetts, USA41, and died January 21, 1727/28 in Bowentown, Cumberland County, New Jersey, USA (now Cohansey, Salem Co.)41,42.

1683/4     Elizabeth WHEATON, widow, is appointed to adminster the estate of Samuel WHEATON [David J WHEATON 19 September 2004)

Information from Jeanette DIEFENBAUGH 12/7/2005

How did Samuel die? This was around the time that the Indian’s burned half of the homes and barns in Swansea and Rehoboth. During King Phillip’s War Samuel WHEATON served as a trooper under Captain HUTENSON’s Company… See Bliss “History of Rehoboth”…

Elizabeth WOOD née WHEATON lost her husband Samuel WHEATON before her son Samuel was born. She married Samuel BOWEN Snr.

Information from Phillip BEDIENT 29.6.2006

“Samuel WHEATON died before his father, and his children are mentioned in their grandfather’s will. The widow Elizabeth (WOOD) WHEATON married Samuel BOWEN of Swansea and they with some of their their WHEATON children moved to Cohansey, NJ with the Baptist colony and they had several BOWEN children. The WHEATON brothers, Jonathan and Noah, each lived and died in Cohansey and their wills both refer to their inheritance in land in New England. It would appear that Samuel WHEATON, Jr. stayed in Swansea to claim his father’s estate there.”

Information from Richard THOMAS 1 August 2003

In May of this year I found the address for the First Baptist Church of Swansea, so I wrote them a letter asking if this was the same church that Rev Ephraim WHEATON was the paster and did they have any info on the church.

On May 15th I got a response from Dr HARTMAN now the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Swansea, Mass. Web site FBCSwansea@aol.com   His info: FBC of Swansea was founded in 1663 by John MYLES. Samuel LUTHER was the second pastor and Ephraim WHEATON was the third. Samuel LUTHER died in 1716 and Ephraim took over as pastor until his death in 1734.

BAPTIST CHURCH IN MASSACHUSETTS

Details are mainly from Richard THOMAS. He has done much research concerning the Baptist Church in Massachusetts, visited Rehoboth and has written to the pastor of Swansea Baptist Church, Dr HARTMAN who sent much information. {Richard THOMAS May to August 2003]

“The Baptist church established in Rehoboth was the church where Obadiah Holmes was the pastor. The WHEATONs were probably part of this congregation as they were fined as part of the congregation when Obadiah Holmes was jailed and whipped for the practice of baptism which the other churches were against. Apparently the founding of the church in Swansea came about because some of the folks in Rehoboth were against the Baptist church and their beliefs and the members of the church were fined and ordered to desist from holding their meetings which of course they did not do. Later on they were ordered to remove their “meetings” to some other place where they might not prejudice any other church. In 1667 the Plymouth court granted to these people “a grant of a town to be called Swansea, “That the Baptist might have a resting place.” The name Swansea was selected because that is where their first Baptist minister John Myles migrated from, Swansea, Wales”

Pastor HARTMAN states that “Our church records go back to 1649 when John MYLES founded the first Baptist church in Wales, (Ilston, near Swansea). John MYLES migrated to the U.S. after the restoration of the monarchy in England”.

(Ilston is Llanilltud Gwyr in Welsh – with a cirumflex accent over the W. It is a Village to the south west of Swansea Airport, 6 miles/10 kms west of Swansea, Wales. According to the Swansea, Glamorganshire, Wales Record Office, John MYLES took the Register of Baptisms,

Marriages and Burials for the Ilston Baptist Church with him when he emigrated to America. The original is preserved in an Archive in the USA, but a transcript was made which was subsequently published. It contains no references to any WHEATONs. The original book from the Ilston church brought over by John Myles is now at   Brown University but is not available to view. Robert Wheaton was not noted in the transcribed book, but there are a host of Bowen’s.

Richard Bowen came with money to the U S and this may be one way that Robert was able to assemble the amount of land that the acquired.)

“The Swansea church is the third oldest surviving Baptist congregation in North America, the grand parent institution for Brown University and a congregation that represents and inflow of Baptist experience separate from the Roger WILLAIMS and John CLARK traditions. The First Baptist Church in Swansea was founded in 1663 by John MYLES. Samuel LUTHER was the second pastor and Ephraim WHEATON (son of Robert WHEATON was the third. Samuel LUTHER died in 1716 and Ephraim took over as pastor until his death in 1734.

Information from Richard THOMAS 6/8/2003

Samuel Luther was the second minister of The First Baptist Church of Swansea and Ephraim Wheaton was the third minister. The Rev. J.J. Thatcher, pastor in 1863. said, “Mr. Wheaton appears to have been a man who exerted a great and good influence on the church, and on others, also, and the church was highly prosperous. According to the records we have, in about five years after becoming sole pastor, he baptized fifty into membership of the church. Of this revival, Rev. Wheaton gave an account in a letter to Mr. Thomas Hollis of London, an eminent Baptist and the generous founder of the Hollis Professorship in Harvard University, at Cambridge, Mass. Mr. Hollis responded with a glowing letter to Rev. Wheaton from London on March 13, 1722 ( which is to long to include here.)

Rev. Wheaton ministered in Swansea but his place of residence was Rehoboth where he died April 26, 1734 aged 75 years. He lies buried near by a stone marking his grave.

The descendants of Rev. Ephraim down through years have established the Wheaton name for at least two cities, one in Illinois which you have on your web site, and the other Wheaton, Maryland named after General Frank Wheaton. Two colleges have been named after Wheaton’s. Wheaton college in Wheaton, Illinois was named for Warren and Jessie Wheaton. Wheaton college in Norton Massachusetts. is named for the daughter of Hon. Laban Wheaton.

From “History of Rehoboth” by BLISS sent by Richard THOMAS

The church, which Rev. Ephraim WHEATON, his father Robert, his brothers, John, Joseph and Samuel were instrumental in organizing was constituted at Rehoboth in the year 1663. Mr Obadiah HOLMES, previously of Salem, was their first minister. Four petitions were soon lodged at court against the members of this church, one from Rehoboth signed by thirty-five persons; one signed by all the clergymen in the colony, only two excepted; the third from Taunton, and the last from the government of Massachusetts Bay Company.

The Plymouth magistrated merely ordered them to desist from practices disagreeable to their brethren. They, however, bound their leader and minister, Mr HOLMES, in the sum of ten pounds for his appearances in court. Mr HOLMES was seized and confined to jail in Boston. He was charged with the crimes of preaching the Gospel, administering the sacraments, re-baptizinf persons who had previously been baptized, and disclaiming against the sprinkling of infants which was proved, he was fined thirty pounds or to be well whipped. He was publicly whipped, receiving thirty lashes. Each member of the church was fined five pounds and ordered by the government to desist from their meetings. Later on, they were odered to reove their “meeting” to some other place, “where they might no prejudice any other church.” Still later in 1667, the Plymouth court granted to these people a “grant of a town to be called Swansea” “That the Baptists might have a resting place”.

The first minister in the new town of Swansea was Elder John MYLES, who had been minister over the Baptist church in Swansea, Wales from 1649 to 1662. After the death of Oliver CROMWELL, Charles II came into power and the Act of Uniformity was passed in 1662, by which some two thousand of the best ministers were ejected from their places, because they refused to confirm to the Church of England. Among these ministers was Elder John MYLES. In this state of affairs, Elder MYLES, and many members of his Welsh church emigrated, somewhat hastily, to the Americas, and fortunately for future historians and genealogists, brought over with them the book of records of their ancient church in Wales. Elder MYLES was the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Swansea when the King Philip War broke out in 1675. While this church, including the WHEATONs, were engaged in publich worship, the Indians began to close in around them; and while the people were wending their way to their homes, the Indians attacked, killing some outright, and wounding many others, and succeeded in burning more than half the town. The house of Elder MYLES was made into a garrison and survived the attack. The King Phillip was lasted two years and ended with the death of King Phillip. During the war Joseph WHEATON was a trooper under Captain HUTCHENSON, Samuel was a trooper under Captin HUTCHENSON, Christopher was a soldier in Captain JOHNSON’s company and Obadiah was a soldier in Captain JOHNSON’s company.

Samuel LUTHER was the second minister of The First Church of Swansea and Ephraim WHEATON was the third minister. The Rev. J J THATCHER, pastor in 1863 said, “Mr WHEATON appears to have been a man who exerted a great and good influence on the church, and on others, also and the church was highly prosperous. According to the records we have, in about five years after becoming sole pastor, he baptised fifty into membership of the church. Of this revival, Rev. WHEATON gave an account in a letter to Mr Thomas HOLLIS of London, an eminent Baptist and the generous founder of the Hollis Professorship in Harvard University, at Cambridge, Massachusetts. Mr. HOLLIS responded with a glowing letter to Rev WHEATON from London on March 13 1722.

Rev WHEATON ministered in Swansea but his place of residence was Rehoboth where he died April 26, 1734 aged 75 years. He lies buried near a stone marking his grave.

“In 1704, Mr. Ephraim WHEATON became associate with Elder LUTHER, and at his death [1716] sole pastor. [The first Baptist Church in Swansea] In 1718 the church records seem to begin. Mr. WHEATON appears to have been a man who exerted a great and good influence on the church, and on others also. His ministry was eminently successful, and the church was highly prosperous. According to the records we have, about one hundred were added to the church. He died April 26, in the seventy-fifth year of his age, and was buried in Rehoboth.” [History of Swansea, 1917, p. 104.]

Information from Kelly WHEATON 16/5/2009

About a week ago my husband and I had occasion to visit Rehoboth, MA for the day and took photos of as many graves and sites as we could. Also took copies of some of the early deeds. (Unfortuntely we didn’t get to the Probate Office which was in a different town than the Deeds which were in Taunton). I haven’t seen any photos on your website and don’t know if you can accommodate these (sending small copies here). Anyway I’m slowly digesting what we got and will try to put in a semblance of order. We, by pure luck, happened upon Robert WHEATON’s son, Ephraim’s, farm/land in Rehoboth/Seekonk. The farm is split in half by the towns of Rehoboth and Seekonk which originally were together under the name Rehoboth. But just to confuse things Rehoboth was called by the native Indians Secuncke/ Seekonk and later named Rehoboth by pastor Newman. (Seekonk comes from the Indian name for dark or black swan) I stopped on Wheaton Ave to take a photo of a pastoral farm and the neighbor across the way whose husband grew up on the farm told us (and we later confirmed) that this was WHEATON’s (and quite possibly one of Robert’s land holdings). Also located the original Rehoboth settlement which is not in Rehoboth, MA at all! It is called the “Ring of Green” and is actually at the location of the Newman Cemetery in Rumford (part of East Providence, RI) some five miles from the current Town of Rehoboth. So any WHEATON ancestor’s visiting Rehoboth proper are in the wrong place!

Information from David J WHEATON 12/9/2004

“It is indicated that he was from Mendon, Massachusetts and his occupation was as a Cooper”

Information from David WHEATON 25/11/2004

3 June 2004 Report: Suffolk County probate records reveal that Benjamin died intestate on 12 August 1726. Benjamin’s son Benjamin was appointed to administed the estate on 17 November 1726. The estate was inventoried at 150 pounds 9 shillings and 6 pence. This document also shows that Benjamin WHEATON Sr. was a Cooper. The following April 28th, the court determined that the farm could not be divided between the heirs without “great prejudice to or spoiling of the whole”. The matter was settled by allowing Benjamin, the second son of Benjamin WHEATON, deceased, to receive title to the farm provided that he pay his siblings for their share. The widow, Margaret WHEATON, was allowed her right of dower (one third of the estate) for life. Her share would be divided among the children after her death. The children and heirs of Benjamin WHEATON Sr. were identified as Daniel Jeremiah, David and Benjamin. The eldest son, Samuel, was excluded from the settlement because he already received his full share during the life of his father.

A deed found in Bristol County records shows that on 20 March 1684/5, “Benjamin WHEATON of ye Towne of Mendon in Ye Collony of ye Massachusetts in N England Late of Rehoboth in ye Collony of New Plym Cooper” sold for the sum of 3 pounds 10 shillings to Jonathan FILLER of Rehoboth “my whole share of Meadow & Swampe in ye Lands called ye North purchased Lands in Rehobo(th) Which share was given to me by my Father Robert WHEATON”. There can be no doubt that Benjamin WHEATON of Mendon is the son of Robert WHEATON of Rehoboth. Benjamin proved this link with his own pen.

Comments and queries from JKW 10/4/2012

Kelly shows two marriages for Noah:

Marriage (1) to B

Marriage (2) to Sarah Bagley FOGG. (One of Noah’s grandchildren is called Bagley WHEATON)

I have him married to Sarah BOWEN which seems to correspond with the information above.

Kelly has 3 children born all born about 1700, children of just Noah

I have 7 children born between 1702 and 1716, children of Noah and Sarah BOWEN

I have the marriage date for Noah and Sarah BOWEN as 1704

Kelly has the death of Sarah Bagley GOFF as 10 September 1713

So, is Sarah BOWEN was the first wife and had some of the children she must have died before 1713 when Sarah GOFF died. But there are children born after 1713. So perhaps it was Sarah GOFF who married Noah in 1704, died in 1713, Noah married Sarah BOWEN in 1714 so that the last two children were hers?

At present I have shown two marriages but have made all the children Sarah BOWENs until I receive more information

15. Samuel3 WHEATON (Samuel2, Robert1)328 was born July 21, 1683 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA328,329,330, and died Aft. 1759331. He married Experience PEIRCE or PIERCE332 October 24, 1709 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA332,333,334. She was born July 21, 1682 in Warwick, Rhode Island, USA335, and died January 25, 1722/23 in Age 40335.

Notes for Experience PEIRCE or PIERCE:

The original information I received from Vikki EBELSHEISER showed that Robert WHEATON had a son Samuel WHEATON, and that this Samuel had a son also called Samuel, and that son Samuel born 1683 married Experience

Then Information from the Circular Chart from Bonnie WHEATON 12/2004 showed something different and that it was Samuel born 1678/9, who was the son of John, marrying Experience PIERCE, with one son, Levi. I had already received information as stated above which indicated that the Samuel who married Experience was the son, born 1683, of Samuel, rather than the son, born 1678/9, of John

Then Jeanette DIENFENBAUGH wrote 12/7/2005 that she also believed that that Experience married the Samuel born 10 January 1678/79, son of John, and not the Samuel, born 21 July 1683 son of Samuel.

So I had conflicting information…the original information I had received from Vikki EBELSHEISER showed that Samuel born 21 July 1683, son of Samuel married Experience, whilst Bonnie WHEATON and Jeanette DIENFENBAUGH showed that Samuel born 1678/9 son of John married her. This needed to be sorted out.

However, I have since been sent two more lots of information showing that the Samuel born 1683, son of Samuel and Elizabeth WOOD married Experience PIERCE. As I have no way of sorting this out from this side of the Atlantic, and as it does seem that the other Samuel (born 1678/9) had brothers Nathaniel and Isaac, I have shown that this Samuel, born 1683, son of Samuel, married Experience

Information from message to Kelly WHEATON 23/4/2013 from Bart SAXBE who sent a letter from Nathaniel WHEATON to his cousin Isaac WHEATON dated 1785

“….I well remember their father Samuel your Great Grandfather, was first cousin to my father and when I was a boy he used to come a visiting and spend several days with my father and his brother, who lived in the neighbourhood near each other at Rehoboth, about seven miles eastward, at the town of Providence where I now dwell and near Swanzey aforesaid”

Notes for Hannah UNKNOWN wife of Samuel WHEATON:

I have been sent information this Samuel born married Experience PIERCE. However, further information would suggest that this Samuel married Hannah.

Information from Circular Chart from Bonnie WHEATON 12/2004: The chart shows this Samuel marrying Experience PIERCE, with one son, Levi. He is already included in the family of the Samuel mentioned above.

Information from Phillip BEDIENT 29 June 2006 (with additional comment in brackets)

“There is a problem in this generation of the WHEATON family that I believe I have resolved correctly. Samuel and John WHEATON, sons of Robert, each had a son Samuel with John’s son Samuel being four years older (born 1678) than Samuel’s son Samuel (born 1683).

I have chosen Samuel (son of Samuel born 1683) to be the most likely ancestor (of mine) for a number of reasons, but the most telling is an entry in the records of the town of Swansea that indicates that Samuel, son of Samuel and Elizabeth Wheaton, was born July 21, 1683 and married Oct. 24, 1709 Experience Pierce. The recording of the birth in 1683 and the recording of the marriage in 1709 may have been done at the same time in 1709, but whoever wrote the record apparently believed that the information was correct. Let us hope that the keeper of the town records knew the correct relationship.”

From the information above it would seem that this Samuel did not marry Experience PIERCE, and did not have a son Levi. However, these notes are being left on file in case queries arise in the future.

Information from David WHEATON 25/11/2004

3 June 2004 Report: On 31 January 1727, Mary WHEATON, Samuel’s wife, petitioned the court that she might be appointed the guardian of the inheritance belonging to her daughter, Mary. Mary declared that Samuel abandoned his family when her daughter was two years old and had been gone for seven years. During this time, her father-in-law, Benjamin WHEATON, died. Daniel WHEATON, Samuel’s brother, claimed to have power of attorney from Samuel. Mary believed that Daniel was attempting to lay claim to the inheritance of her husband, which rightfully belonged to her daughter as the only living heir. Daniel and Benjamin WHEATON responded by claiming that Mary was attempting to defraud their brother. They asked the court to delay judgement while they procured evidence that Samuel was yet living. It was probably after this that it was decided that Samuel had already received his full share. It is doubtful that his daughter Mary received anything. But sometimes great things come out of adversity. An ancestry table for President William Howard TAFT published by the American Genealogist shows that he is the great-great-grandson of Mary WHEATON, the abandoned daughter of Samuel WHEATON and Mary ROCKWOOD.

Circular Chart from Bonnie WHEATON 12/2004

The information on this chart shows that Samuel married Millisom SPRAGUE 23 January 1736 and they had 3 children, Samuel born 11 September 1737, Millicent born 25 August 1739 and Esther born 6 September 1743.   Son Samuel married Sarah SKILLION 18 December 1763 and they had John born 7 October 1766 and Charles born 5 August 1769

Information from David J WHEATON 25/11/2004

3 June 2004 Report: Two deeds recorded in Suffolk County make a strong case for the identificaton of David as the son of Benjamin and Margaret WHEATON. Mendon was part of Suffolk County until the creation of Worcester County in 1731. On 22 September 1727, David WHEATON of Mendon, husbandman, purchased 26 acres of land at Magamisco Hill in Mendon from his brother Benjamin WHEATON, also of Mendon, Cooper. The deed was not recorded until 14 February 1744. On the same day that David presented this deed for recording in Boston, he presented another deed dated 27 October 1741. That deed shows that David WHEATON was now living in Holliston, but he was purchasing land in Medway from Benjamin JONES. This property consisted of 25 acres for a purchase price of 137 pounds and 10 shillings. The fact that both deeds were recorded on the same day and were recorded consecutively in the Suffolk County register virtually confirms that the two David WHEATON grantees are identical. The first deed was made between Benjamin WHEATON and David WHEATON, clearly the sons of Benjamin WHEATON of Mendon. The second deed links David to Medway. It is concluded, therefore, that David WHEATON of Medway is identical to David WHEATON of Mendon. Benjamin and Margaret WHEATON constitute the next generation of the pedigree.

The Following from EARLY MEDWAY SETTLERS & LAND RECORDS b1996 By Francis D. Donovan

David WHEATON, son of Benjamin of Mendon, Mass., was born in 1706.

He married Susannah FISHER in 1736, and settled in Mucksquit west of Henry MORSE.

Rev. Abner MORSE says that WHEATON settled first on the east part of the WILSON lot, then built on the BULLEN lot on 25 acres bought in 1741 from Benjamin JONES. He then built on the southwest corner of the Rockwood lot. This latter place was sold to Jeremiah LITTLEFIELD in 1767, and later, to Joseph BRICK. The place is shown on the 1852 Medway map on Hill Street. During his life here, he built three houses near Winthrop’s Pond.

He was a stone mason, and built many walls, wells and foundations in the area. In his old age, he became a fortune teller, and foretold many events with remnarkable accuracy.

After his first wife died in 1750, he married the same year, Sarah MAXFIELD. He served in the French and Indian War, and died in 1793.

Some of his children were recorded in Medway, some in Holliston, and some in both towns. David 1731-;  Daniel 1732- m. 1758 Unity BULLEN; Hannah 1734; Susanna 1735 m. 1769 Hezekiah BULLARD; Joseph 1742 m. 1762 Rachel MAXWELL; Aaron 1724; Jemima 1746-1746; Mary 1748-1749

Note: M. M. FISHER, in one of his newspaper articles, stated that Hannah WHEATON was a poetess of some note, and died a pauper in Medway.

From My History

Buried at Lower Hopewell Baptist Graveyard without a doubt, as he was a member of Cohansey Baptist Church and live near there (within 1/4 mile). He was under 21 when his father made his will 20 Dec 1715. He visited Swansea in 1735 and took with him a letter from the Cohansey Baptist Church dated 19 Jan 1735.”

Comments queries from JKW 11/4/2012

Kelly WHEATON GEDCOM 13/5/2011 shows two marriages for Isaac, (1) to Mary PAGE and (2) to Hannah UNKNOWN (could be WOODRUFF – see Will information above). All children are shown as belonging to Mary PAGE

I only have one marriage, to Hannah UNKNOWN with all the children shown as hers.

In his Will made in 1761 Isaac writes about his son Isaac being less than 21, we have a birth date for his in 1748 so this seems to fit. It is not clear from the Will whether any of the other sons are under 21 other than he says writes about his three youngest sons, so obviously Isaac is older than them. But even so it does suggest that the birth dates of the children are in the 1740s and 1750s. This would suggest that they were the children of his second wife (Hannah), rather than his first wife (Mary).

For the present I have entered both wives, but have left the children as belong to Hannah until I am advised otherwise.

Information from Kelly WHEATON GEDCOM 9/5/2011

They lived in Swanswa, Massachusetts, and Warren, Rhode Island, USA

Information from Philip BEDIENT 29/6/2006

The town of Barrington was taken from Swansea, incorporated as a town by Massachusetts on Nov. 18, 1717, and transferred to Rhode Island by royal decree on May 28, 1746. Parts of Swansea and Rehoboth were added to Barrington on the north and east by the new boundary line and its name was changed to Warren on Jan, 27, 1746/7. The names of Samuel WHEATON and his sons Noah and Perez appear in a 1774 census of Warren, RI. In all probability the family had not moved but the boundaries of the colonies had. The births of all of the children are recorded in Swansea, MA records. In 1776 Samuel WHEATON purchased 196 acres of land in the Jericho district of Berkshire Co., MA which was later to become the town of Hancock. In 1793, after the death of their father, Noah WHEATON of Canaan, NY, Perez WHEATON and Spencer WHEATON of Warren, RI, and William WHEATON of Albany Co., NY sold this land but reserved its use for the widow Prudence for her lifetime.

Samuel WHEATON died prior to the 1790 census. That census lists Pruda WHEATON with one other female living with her.

However, his Samuel’s wife was born 1719/1720 which would have made her in her late 50s at this date.

Kelly has a birth date of 2 June 1762 Swansea, Bristol Co,m Massachusetts, USA

Marriage Notes for Sarah WHEATON and Oliver EDDY:

Information from Kelly WHEATON 25/2/2014

Kelly has this Sarah’s birth as being 2 June1762 which would make her only 12 for a marriage to Oliver EDDY in 1774.

Kelly has another Sarah WHEATON born 7 January 1748 marrying Oliver EDDY 15 Decemer 1774 in Warren, Vermont, USA Because of the birth dates Kelly believes it was the other Sarah who married Oliver EDDY and not this one.

However, I have been sent a birth date for this Sarah as the 17 December 1843 which would have made her 31 at the date of the marriage in 1774.

I have therefore entered the bridegroom and marriage date for both Sarahs

Mentioned in his father’s Will and was given land in Barrington, Rhode Island. Inventory of the Will was taken on 1 September 1737 with a value of 663 pounds (most of which 401 pounds was ina bond. (Information from Sepp BERGSCHNEIDER 16/6/2010)

 

“Joseph WHEATON, was the first settler in that part of New Milford now known as Marbledale and lying in the present town of Washington. In History of New Milford and Bridgewater, by Samuel ORCUTT, Hartford (1882), he is stated to have come from Seakonk, Rhode Island (now Massachusetts), and to have purchased a tract of 130 acres, July 6 1744. This place is still known as the “Wheaton Homestead”.

 

In 1759 he purchased another farm of about 120 acres in New Milford, adjoining his original land on the south. His son, Sylvester WHEATON (father of Rev. Nathaniel Sheldon WHEATON, President of Trinity College Hartford), built a house on this latter trace during the revolution. Sylvester’s granddaughter, Elvira WHEATON, married Ralph BUCKINGHAM and occupied the place for many years. Among her heirlooms was a teaspoon marked “L.K.” and a wine glass 150 years old, both of which had belonged to Lydia Kent WHEATON. The Buckingham Place is now owned by Chester LYON”.

CHAPTER XIX. THE NORTH END.

 

The Northville Burying Place.

 

In memory

of

JOSEPH WHEATON

one of the first settlers of Newpreston who

Departed this Life March the

6 AD 1789 in the 72d Year

of his Age.

I once was active

in the busy world

Till Fatal Death

his pointed arrows hurled

And plunged me in

this dreary volted tomb

Where you my wife

and children dear must quickly come.

 

“It was probably about 1748 when Theophilus BALDWIN Jr., and his brother Isaac BALDWIN settled on the east side of Mount Tom, and were the first who resided in that locality, except Eleazer BEECHER, so far as has been ascertained. Soon after this, Daniel HINE, who located first a little north of Park Lane school-house, settled on the farm northeast of Northville where his descendants still reside, but this was a little after Joseph WHEATON had settled at Marbledale. In the records of the First Ecclesiastical Society for October,1774, the following is found: “Voted that Abraham DATON, Daniel HINE, Samuel FARRAND, and Abel BUCKINGHAM shall nave the same privileges for schooling as other districts have, for the year ensuing; and Daniel HINE is chosen school committee and collector.” This was, probably, the beginning of a district in that locality, and the vote granted those four families to have a separate school and receive their proportion of public money. According to Davis BALDWIN’s narrative the first school-house at Northville was erected in 1783″.

 

Marbledale.

 

Joseph WHEATON from Seakonk, Rhode Island, was the first permanent settler at this locality, in the town of New Milford. He married Lydia KENT, of Barrington,Mass. He purchased of Paul WELCH, July 6, 1744, “a tract of land in New Milford, near to the northeast corner of the old township, being near 130 acres, bounded as follows: beginning at the southwest corner a large heap of stones” thence

“northerly with a highway to the northwest corner, thence running easterly to a heap of stones on Woodbury line, thence south with said line to a stake,” thence westerly to the first mentioned corner. This land was surveyed to Paul Welch some years before, and his brother John, now deceased, had land laid to him between this of Paul WELCH’s and the northern boundary of the old township.

 

This tract of land lay east of the highway, and a little distance north of the present dwelling of Mr. Ralph BUCKINGHAM at Marbledale, and on it he built a house twenty rods, perhaps, back from the highway, but afterwards built one near the road, which locality is still known as the old WHEATON homestead. This land was in the old township of New Milford and not in the north purchase.

 

Seven days after Joseph WHEATON bought this land his first child, Lydia, was born, but its mother was not, probably, in New Milford; the next child, Joseph,was born in New Milford.

 

The tradition is that Joseph WHEATON when he settled here made his home some time with the first Daniel HINE near what is now Park Lane, because there was no family in the vicinity of his farm. Joseph WHEATON’s dwelling-house and all papers were burned some years after the second one was completed and hence, the scarcity of the family records. The births of seven of his children are on the town records but nowhere else. He died early, but his widow survived him many years and was among the honored ones in the seating of the meeting-house at New Milford after her husband’s decease.

 

In 1759, Joseph WHEATON bought another farm of about 120 acres adjoining his on the south, which was that whereon Mr. Ralph BUCKINGHAM now resides.

 

St. Andrew’s Church in Marbledale.

 

As seen in the chapter on New Preston, among the early settlers of that place were persons who adhered to the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Thomas DAVIES baptized a number of children in that place during the years 1764 and 1765; and held several sevices there during that time.

 

In a letter dated June 25, 1764, Mr. DAVIES says: “In New Preston, a parish in Kent, they have most of the material for building a church which they determine to erect next summer, forty-five by thirty-five feet.” In another letter dated June, 1765, he wrote: “The church I mentioned, which was to be erected this last spring in New Preston, is postponed until the next on account of the people’s incapacity; not that they are so distressingly poor, but because there is no money in circulation.” It is probable this church edifice was erected soon after, and stood on land now owned by Mr. George S. HOLT, a short distance east from Mr. David BURMHAM’s store in the village of New Preston.

 

The parish records of St. Andrew’s Church begin at a meeting held under the Act of the General Assembly, as to the organization of religious bodies, directed by William COGSWELL, justice of the peace. On June 24, 1784, John ITCHCOCK, Esqr., moderator, Stephen MOREHOUSE was chosen clerk, and sworn according to law, and Sylvester WHEATON, Jerod SPERRY, and Peter PORTER, were chosen society’s committee.

 

“At a meeting warned and held June 26. 1784, the inhabitants of New Preston and East-Witch [Warren] of the denomination of the Church of England so called parishes, having formed themselves into a lawful society according to the late act of the General Assembly of this state of Connecticut:

 

We, the subscribers whose names are underwritten, being desirous for the promoting religion and good order, do acknowledge ourselves to be and belong to the above said body; and do by these presents form and incorporate into said society, as witness our hands.”

Test, a true record from the assignments,

 

STEPHEN MOREHOUSE, Register”

 

At a meeting held at the Church in New Preston, Aug. 23, 1784, Capt Peter PORTER, moderator.

 

“Voted to hire preaching or some candidate to read prayers according to our subscription. For collectors:-Samuel LITTLEFIELD, for East Greenwitch and the Great Hollow [Warren and Kent Hollow], Jesse BAKER for Washington, David PEET for New Milford.”

 

The Rev. Richard CLARKE had charge of this parish in Connecticut with New Milford and other places after the death of the Rev. Thomas DAVIES, from 1767 to 1783; and some difficulty arose between the parish and Mr. CLARK, so that they “voted that Sylvester WHEATON be a committee to carry on the suit with Mr. CLARK, and to employ an attorney on our behalf.” The question of difference seems to have been as to Mr. CLARK’s salary, for the parish in 1785 appointed Sylvester WHEATON, Samuel LITTLEFIELD, Elijah WALLER, Israel SPERRY, and John PEET, a committee “to treat with Mr. CLARK and to settle with him from December, 1767, to December, 1783,” if they could, but in the effort they failed, and hence the suit, of which we have no further information.

 

During the Revolutionary War, such was the feeling towards the Church of England, here, that it was necessary for the preservation of the Church to discontinue services and board up the windows, as some thought it a display of patriotism to throw stones through the windows and otherwise injure the building, and services were held occasionally at private houses. There is no evidence of disloyalty to the colonies on the part of the church. Two sons of Joseph WHEATON, a leading member of this parish, were in the war, and they, Benjamin and Joseph, Jr., were soldiers and were taken prisoners and suffered

all the horrors of imprisonment in New York, during its occupancy by the British. Upon the entrance of the American army into that city their brother Sylvester WHEATON, going to assist them home, carried one brother in his arms out of the city, and leaving him to go for the other, on his return found the first one dead, and the other did not live to return home.

 

The Rev. Ashbel BALDWIN was the first settled minister after the organization under the statute law, after the Revolution.

 

The parish was connected with the parishes of Washington, Kent, New Milford, and New Fairfield, as a vote taken Sept. 1, 1787, shows the laying of a tax of two pence on the pound ” to be used in connection with those parishes, or otherwise as the committee see best for us in general.”

 

At a society’s meeting, April 6, 1790, “Voted that the societies belonging to New Preston will assist Mr. Elijah WALLER in trying a suit at law with the Washington collectors for taking Waller’s money for the Presbyterian Order, and bear the cost and counsel that shall arise before a single justice of the peace, and if judgment shall come out in his favor the money shall be cast into the treasury of New Preston.”

 

“October 29, 1790. Voted to raise twenty-eight pounds lawful money-the two-thirds in produce, the one-third in money for the support of the Rev. Truman MARSM, provided he will hold himself to be our incumbent, the same to be”paid to Mr. MARSH by the first of January annually.” Mr. MARSH was their Rector until October 31, 1799; residing in New Milford and serving the Episcopal Church at that place during the same time.

 

At a meeting held Jan. 2, 1791, soon after Mr. Marsh’s settlement here, they voted that the standing committee should go with James BOZWORTH, Sylvester WHEATON, and Stephen MOREHOUSE, and view the church to see what alterations it was best to make, and in accordance with the report they voted to “lower the church to one tier of windows, proportionable to a handsome conveniency with one front gallery, as Messrs. James BOZWORTH and Sylvester WHEATON shall say.” At that time New Preston Hill was the more important place, and soon a committee was appointed to place a stake not over forty rods from the Rev. Mr. DAY’s meeting-house, as a location on which to build a church or to which to remove the old one.

 

In 1793, the first record is made about buying the Friends’ meeting-house which stood at the north end of the Northville burying-place. This was the one that Jemima WILKINSON preached in four or five years; she having been removed some years to the Genesee country.

 

At a meeting held Aug. 25, 1796, it was voted to buy “the Friends’

meeting-house on condition that the subscription should be sufficient.” This house was purchased but subsequent events have demonstrated the movement to leave New Preston village one of great error, for by it they lost a large part of the northern portion of the parish, and that loss has never been recovered. The decay of the marble business in Marbledale and the attractions of Lake Waraumaug as a summer resort have made New Preston-known for many years as Waraumaug-the center of business and social life for this region of country, and in all probability had the location of the church never been changed it would have attained a larger influence than it now holds.

 

The Rev. Joseph PERRY succeeded Rev. Mr. MARSH as acting clergyman to this parish, remaining until September, 1802, after which there was a vacancy until the settlement of the Rev. Benjamin BENHAM in January, 1807. He continued rector in connection with the Churches of New Milford and Roxbury until 1812; when he was succeeded in St. Andrew’s parish by the Rev. Sturges GILBERT, who was, at his own request, dismissed by vote of the parish, Sept. 21, 1816.

 

At this time the question of a new house of worship was agitated, and it was decided inexpedient to repair the church, and a vote was passed that it was expedient to erect a new church on New Preston Hill, and that if $1,600 could be raised by subscription, to proceed to build the church. The ground was purchased on New Preston Hill, in accordance with this vote, but there being a difference of opinion the matter was delayed, and finally it was built where it now stands

in Marbledale village.

 

After the dismissal of the Rev. Mr. GILBERT there are records of services held by the Rev. Mr. GLOVER and the Rev. Samuel B. HALL.

 

The Rev. George B. ANDREWS was settled herein 1819; he being a very capable minister, and during his rectorship the present church edifice was erected, and upon the completion of it the following request was made for its dedication.

 

OCTOBER 14, 1823.

To the Rt. Rev. THOMAS C. BROWNELL, Bishop of the Diocese of Connecticut:

 

  1. REV. SIR: The people of the Parish of New Preston having erected a house for Divine worship:

 

We the Wardens and Vestrymen of the parish request that the said building be consecrated to the service of Almighty God, according to the rites and usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church.

 

GIDEON STARR                 WILLIAM HANDFORD,

JOHN COGSHALL                ERASTUS LOVERIDGE,

Wardens.                     ALVIN BROWN,

Vestrymen.

 

In the Bishop’s report at the next convention he said: “At New Preston on the 16th [of October, 1823] consecrated the new edifice by the name of St. Andrew’s Church. The occasion excited a lively interest, and drew together a large concourse of people, among whom were thirteen of the clergy of our church. The new edifice thus consecrated to the worship of God does great credit to the zeal and liberality of the parish. It is constructed of durable material, and in the Gothic style of architecture. The interior is well finished and conveniently arranged, and the decorations of the pulpit, chancel, and desk are handsome and appropriate. The congregation is not large nor wealthy, yet the spirit with which they are animated has enabled them to erect the church within a very short period, and to pay for it entirely from their own resources. Some may have spared from their exigencies, yet it is believed they are far from feeling impoverished by their exertions, and they may have a religious trust that what they have thus lent unto the Lord will be repaid in blessings on themselves and their posterity.”

 

In 1826 and 7 the Rev. Ezra B. KELLOGG was the officiating minister, the Rev. Mr. ANDREWS in charge; in 1829 the Rev. Henry FINCH; in 1830 the Rev. Isaac JONES; in 1831 the Rev. Henry S. ATWATER; in 1836 the Rev. Enoch HUNTINGTON, of New Milford; in 1838 the Rev. Riverius CAMP, who was succeeded by the Rev. Henry Beers SHERMAN; in 1839 the Rev. George Sewell GORDEON; in 1844 the Rev. Alfred Marsen LOUTREL; in 1846 the Rev. William LONG; in 1849the Rev. James L. SCOTT; in 1853 the Rev. Nathaniel S. WHEATON, D.D., while the church was being repaired; in 1853 to Easter, 1854, the Rev. Robert F. CLUTE, and then the Rev. James L. SCOTT to December, 1867; from August, 1868, the Rev. Henry C. RANDALL to Nov. 17, 1869; the Rev. Charles HUSBAND, who died Dec. 20, 1870; and in 1872 the Rev. John N. MERWIN, who died May 17, 1874. On June 28, 1874, the Rev. William S. PECK was settled as rector, and continues active and successful at the present time.

 

Two bequests are held for the benefit of pew-holders in this church; one was given by the late Samuel HILL for the benefit of those who reside in New Milfordin New Preston Society, which amounts at present to $1,900; and one of $500 given by the late Nathaniel BROWN to be applied to all members outside of the above stated limits.

 

In 1853 the Rev. Nathaniel S. WHEATON, D.D., son of Sylvester and grandson of Joseph WHEATON, one of the first settlers and churchmen of New Preston, purchased and gave to the parish the rectory, now occupied by the rector, at an expense of $1,250. About the same time the church was much enlarged and improved at an expense of over $2,000, to which he contributed liberally.

Notes for Joseph Wheaton: from Cornelia (Mosier) Wheaton’s “Wheaton

Genealogy”: “Joseph Wheaton was one of the first settlers of New Preston. He was from Seakonk, RI. His house was built on what is now Wheaton Road in Marble Dale, then called New Preston. The house stood by a brook across the road from the present (1979) Chet Lyons house. Orcutt’s ‘History of New Milford’ says that Joseph Wheaton built two houses. The first burned some years after the second was built. In it were all family records. The births of seven of his children are on the town records (New Milford) but nowhere else.”

Notes for John WHEATON:

Information from Nick BOWEN to Kelly WHEATON 24/2/2014

One more clue – – “John” was part of the church in Warren when they first sent a letter to James MANNINGS to come preach (he signed in 1763 with Sylvester CHILD & Ebenezer COLE so he must have been pretty important in Warren in 1763.   He also signed a petition to the King (of England) in Aug 1763 to lobby for the initial school for a meeting to be held in Newport, so he seems to have lived on the east side of Narragansett Bay, but south of Providence

Information from Daniel WHEATON 7/3/2002

From the History of the County of Guysborough pagew 125 and 126

“Caleb Wheaton, an officer in the British Army, came here to locate. He had occasion to visit Antigonish, and was obliged to make the journey in a canoe, with an Indian. He was appointed by the Government “to look after vessels,” and was coming from Halifax with his wife and family, when the vessel struck on a rock near St Andrews.s Channel, west of Canso, and sank. A boat had hastily been made ready, in which Mrs. Wheaton, who was ill, was placed on a bed, and with what few articles could be saved, they escaped to the shore. That night was passed in the woods. The next day, a sail appeared. The ship-wrecked party rowed out and hailed the stranger, which proved to be a French vessel bound to Arichat. All assistance was refused till Mrs. Wheaton spoke to them in French, a language with which she was quite familiar. This produced an immediate change. They tarried to render assistance, but finding upon closer investigation that the forlorn party was really English they hearlessly declined giving any help. The magic influence of gold was next resorted to, and even a enemy’s heart was no proof agains this subtle agency. A lavish transfer was soon arranged, and they were safely landed at the Strait. During a visit to England Lieut. Wheaton was invited to breakfast with the Duke of Kent and found 200 sovereigns under his plate.

Information from Mary Marshall BATES 24th April 2002

The primary compilers of the descendants of Caleb Wheaton were Anne Warner Hendsbee, brothers Daniel and Ronald Wheaton and Mary Marshall Bates. Additional sources appear as endnotes.

 

According to record, Caleb Wheaton was an American by birth and was a Customs officer and trader in Machais, ME. From 1744, he served in all the wars in America. In the corps raised by Governor Shirley for the defense of the garrison at Annapolis Royal, he was Lieutenant and Quartermaster. Subsequently, he was commander of Fort St. George in Eastern Massachusetts. As a Loyalist, he was hunted from place to place. Ordered by General Sir William Howe, he pulled down the old North Meeting House in Boston, MA.

 

In 1761, Caleb was granted Lot 7 (44 acres), Div. 2 in Cornwallis Township. In March, 1776 on the voyage to Halifax, NS with British troops from Boston, MA, he and his family were taken prisoners on the brig Elizabeth and were detained in prison for three months. From 1777, he was a Lieutenant in the Guides and Pioneers.

 

Caleb Wheaton had sixteen children. During the Revolutionary War five son’s served in the King’s service, one of whom was killed in battle. At the end of the War, two sons, John and Caleb, were granted half-pay of lieutenants. Another was a pilot in the Royal Navy in Nova Scotia. The fifth son Joseph also a Loyalist was taken prisoner and confined in the Concord Jail. There he was induced to join the Americans and was given a commission as Ensign.

 

In Correspondence dated 26 March 1788 anouncing Captain Caleb Wheaton’s death, W. Collins added that Caleb “has” two wives living, one at Halifax who shared his sufferings and hardships as a Loyalist, the other near Rochester, Kent, England.”

Harding v. Handy/Opinion of the Court

THESE were cross appeals from the decrees of the Circuit Court of Rhode Island.

The bill filed in the Court below by the appellants, Harding, and Nancy his wife, and Sterling Wheaton, alleged, that they, with four others not made parties to the suit, together with Caleb Wheaton, one of the defendants, were entitled, as heirs at law of Comfort Wheaton, deceased, to the real property mentioned in the bill, and situate in the State of Rhode Island. That Comfort W., about the year 1802, began to exhibit symptoms indicating a loss of intellect, and soon became, from various causes mentioned in the bill, incompetent to the management of his estate, and died in 1810. That, under these circumstances, the defendant, Caleb W., (his son,) and who acted as well for himself, as in behalf of the plaintiffs, and the defendant Handy, (the son-in-law of Comfort W., entered into an agreement to endeavour to take his estate out of his hands, and to preserve it for the benefit of his heirs at law. That it was agreed that Comfort W. should be prevailed on to convey his real property to Handy, for a nominal consideration, who should forthwith execute an instrument of writing, declaring that he took and held the same in trust; first, to provide for the decent support of the grantor, during his life; and, after a full remuneration for his expenses and trouble in that respect, to hold the residue of the estate for the benefit of the heirs at law. That, on the 9th of May, 1805, Handy did procure such conveyance, for the nominal consideration of 2,178 dollars, from Comfort W., and entered upon, possessed, and enjoyed, the property in question; but that he refused to execute any declaration of trust as he had agreed, but held the property, claiming it as his own. The bill then alleged, that the defendant, Caleb W., after the death of his father, Comfort W., acting on behalf, and for the benefit of, the heirs, procured letters of administration of the personal estate of Comfort W. to be issued by the proper Court, and caused such further proceedings to be had, as that the administrator exposed to sale the real property before mentioned, which had been conveyed to Handy, and that Caleb W. became the purchaser thereof, for the general benefit of the heirs. That various suits at law had resulted from these transactions, (and, among others, an ejectment brought by the defendant, Handy, against the defendant, Caleb W.,) by which the value of the property had been much deteriorated. The bill then prayed for an account respecting the property; that a decree might be rendered, exonerating it from the deeds to the defendant, Handy, after satisfying his just claims, and ordering one fifth part of the real estate to be set off to the plaintiff, Nancy H., and one fifth to the plaintiff, Sterling W.; and for general relief.

 

The answer of the defendant, Handy, denied that Comfort W. was incapable of conveying his property when the deeds of the 9th of May, 1805, were executed; and insisted that his intellect was perfectly sound at that time. It also denied, that he, the defendant, purchased as a trustee, and averred, that he was a purchaser for a valuable and full consideration. The answer of the other defendant, Caleb W., admitted the allegations of the bill, and submitted to any decree the Court might think equitable.

 

A great mass of testimony taken in the Court below, appeared in the record, which was very contradictory, as to the capacity of Comfort W. to make the conveyance in question.

 

The Circuit Court, by its interlocutory decree, directed that the deeds of the 9th of May, 1805, should be set aside, as having been obtained by false impressions made on a mind enfeebled by old age, and various other causes; and that an account of the receipts and disbursements of the defendant, Handy, should be taken, and that he should be credited for all advances made, and charges incurred, for the maintenance of Comfort W. during his lifetime, and for repairs and improvements made on the real estate. Exceptions were filed by both parties to the report. which was confirmed by the Court below. The final decree declared, that the real estates conveyed to the defendant, Handy, should stand charged with the amount of the balance of the account due to him; that the same should be sold, and the proceeds brought into Court; that the said balance should be paid to him, deducting his proportion of the charges, &c. and the residue, deducting their proportions, &c. should be paid over, and distributed among the heirs at law of Comfort W. If there be any such heirs, not made parties, they to be at liberty to come in under the decree, and receive their shares, paying their proportions of costs and expenses, otherwise to be excluded. That each party before the Court should pay his own costs, excepting the fees of the officers of the Court, which should be a charge on the property, and borne by the parties according to their respective proportions of interest in the proceeds of the sale.

 

From this decree both parties appealed.

Mr. Wheaton, for the original plaintiffs, made the following points:

  1. That the decree ought to be reversed, so far as it declared, that the real property should stand charged with the advances made by the defendant, Handy.
  2. That it ought, in all other respects, to be affirmed.

 

On the first point, he contended, that the deeds having been obtained by the imposition of the grantee on the grantor, the property ought not to stand charged with the expenses incurred by the former. That, even supposing him to have held as a trustee during the lifetime of the plaintiff’s ancestor; after that period he ceased to hold in that capacity, and became a malae fidei possessor, who was not entitled to be allowed for improvements made on the land. #fna [1]

 

On the second point, he argued, (1.) as to the objection made in the Court below, of the defect of jurisdiction in that Court; that the words of the Judiciary Act of 1789, c. 20. s. 16. providing that suits in equity should not be sustained in the Courts of the Union, ‘in any case where plain, adequate, and complete remedy, can be had at law,’ were not intended to abridge the equity jurisdiction of those Courts; that it had been frequently determined, that the proceedings in those Courts were to be according to the English system of equity, both as to principles, practice, and jurisdiction; #fnb [2] that fraud and trust were familiar subjects of cognizance in the Court of Chancery; and that equity often interfered to redress fraud, even after a verdict and judgment at law. #fnc [3] That this was not a case analogous to that which had been cited in the proceedings below, where the only ground of equitable interference was a discovery sought to establish the

  1. Another objection was, that this was an attempt to establish a trust by parol evidence, contrary to the statute of frauds. The Court below did not consider it necessary to determine this point, because, at all events, there was a resulting trust for the heirs, (after allowing for advances, &c.) which, even in England, might, unquestionably, be established by parol. But a comparison of the English statute of frauds, 29 Charles II. c. 3. with the provisions of the local statute of Rhode Island on the same subject, would show, that the latter did not extend to trusts, and, therefore there could be no question of the admissibility of parol evidence in this case.
  2. It was a case of imposition practised by a son-in-law upon his father-in-law, an old man, infirm in body and mind, morally and physically incapable of managing his own affairs, and of resisting the influence and importunities of the other party, standing in that intimate relation. It was analogous to other cases of fraudulent and hard bargains made with expectant heirs, and other persons standing in peculiar relations, rendering them liable to imposition. The great leading case on the general analogy, was that of Chesterfield v. Jansen, #fne [4] which was not cited

Mr. Coxe, (with whom was Mr. Webster,) for the defendant, Handy, argued, (1.) That there was a defect of jurisdiction in the Court below, proceeding as a Court of equity. A complete and adequate remedy at law existed. If the deeds were invalid on the ground of fraud and imposition, that question might be tried in an action at law. It had been so tried and determined. #fnl [5]

  1. It appeared, on the face of the bill itself, that there were other children of Comfort W. who are his heirs at law, but who had not been joined in the present suit. They were equally interested with the other plaintiffs, and should, therefore, have been joined. Their interests are also affected by the decree. It is not too late to take advantage of this objection. #fnm [6]
  2. The bill contained multifarious matters which ought not to be joined. Each of the defendants claimed to have the legal estate in him, in opposition to each other. There was no privity between them as to their respective interests; and before the plaintiffs could have any interest in vacating the deeds of the defendant, Handy, the deed of the defendant, Caleb W., must to removed. The establishment of their right agaisnt one defendant was a prerequisite to their calling upon the other to answer.
  3. The main object of the bill, and that attained by the decree, was to enforce specifically a parol agreement, alleged to have been made between the two defendants, denied by the defendant, Handy, and not proved by any competent testimony. The contract proved is wholly different from that alleged. Such a contract as is
  4. If, however, he was in the state of mind in which the bill represents him, the plaintiffs, by their agent, participated in the fraud, and, therefore, have no right to call upon a Court of equity to interfere, to relieve them from the web in which they have entangled themselves. #fno [7]
  5. The plaintiffs are barred by lapse of time.
  6. The decree sanctions an attempt to establish a contract concerning lands, and a trust in real estate, by parol evidence. The proof of a trust lies on the party who alleges it. #fnp [8] In this case, the conveyances are absolute on the face of them, and the evidence of a trust is wholly aliunde. To warrant the Court in decreeing the execution of a parol declaration of trust, the evidence should be plain and unambiguous. #fnq [9] The taking the conveyance was not in part performance. The act of part performance must be such as the party would not have done with any other view than in execution of the alleged agreement. #fnr [10] This secret trust, and the allegation of part performance, are both denied by the answer,
  7. The bill does not distinctly allege the incompetency of Comfort W., and the imposition said to have been practised on him, so as to put these facts in issue. The decree must conform to the allegata. Some substantial ground must be stated. Old age alone is not sufficient. #fnu [11]
  8. If these facts had been ever so distinctly put in issue, they have not been proved. Where fraud is alleged, it must be fully proved, and will not be presumed [v] The presumption of law is in favour of a party executing an instrument. [w] The question is confined to the state of mind at the time of executing the instrument. [x] Two witnesses deposing sanae menti, are to be credited before a hundred proving insanity. [y] The law will not measure a man’s understanding, and a partial diminution of intellect is not sufficient to invalidate the deeds; nor is there any such thing as an equitable incapacity, where there is a legal capacity. [z] Fraud of this description is equally cognizable at law, and in equity; and the Court of Chancery will not set aside a will of lands on that ground, without directing an issue. [1]
  9. The decree is inconsistent both with the allegations in the bill, and with itself. It is a bill with a double aspect. It charges incompetency in the grantor, and prays that the estate may be exonerated; it also charges a trust, and prays an account, and general relief. The decree declares that the grantor was incompetent, and his conveyance invalid, and yet does not exonerate the estate from them. A deed cannot be set aside partially on the ground of fraud. If set aside at all, it must be in toto. [2] The decree proceeds on the ground of imposition, and grants a relief which could only apply to the pretended trust, which necessarily implies capacity in the grantor. It does not pass on the conveyance from the administrator of Comfort W., to the defendant, Caleb W. So long as the legal estate remains in him under that deed, the right of the plaintiffs is a nonentity.
  10. The Master’s report is erroneous on several grounds, and ought to have been set aside. (1.) Because, in taking the account, he refused to receive the testimony of the defendant, Handy, when it was competent and credible. (2.) The
  11. The final decree is erroneous in several particulars. (1.) In directing a sale of the property under the circumstances. (2.) Because it purports to bind, and does affect the interest of those who are not parties. (3.) Because it wholly omits to provide for the defendant, Handy, as tenant by the curtesy. (4.) Because it does not, unless by implication, determine all the matters in issue, and which ought to have been decided.

Mr. Wheaton, for the plaintiff below, in reply, as to want of proper parties, argued, that, as by the local law, one coparcener could maintain an action at law for his share of the real estate, the same rule of proceeding would be adopted in equity. Under the peculiar circumstances of the case, the Court below had considered the defendant, Caleb W., as legal owner under the administration sale, sufficiently representing all the parties who could claim any beneficial interest; and he (as in effect a plaintiff) submitted to any decree the Court could make in favour of the plaintiffs. Besides, the nature of the jurisdiction of the Courts of the Union, which was derived from the character of the parties as citizens of different States, would prevent their insisting upon parties who were not absolutely necessary to the determination of the merits of the cause as between the parties before the Court. [5] But, in this case, the Court might apply the analogous rule, as to next of kin suing for distributive shares of personal property, one of whom may sue, and the rest may come in under the decree. [6]

Upon the merits, he insisted, that the question as to the capacity of the grantor was not a question of absolute insanity. All the cases show, that the Court will interfere wherever a peculiar relation has been abused to influence or impose upon a person of weak mind. A commission of lunacy is not, by the modern practice of the Court of Chancery, confined to cases of strict insanity, but is applied to cases of imbecility of mind, to the extent of incapacity, from any cause, as disease, age, or habitual intoxication. [7] This principle is fully developed by Lord Erskine in Ex parte Cranmer. [8] It was not, therefore, necessary to show that the grantor was absolutely non compos mentis in a strict legal sense, still less was it necessary to prove that he was incapable at the precise moment the deeds were executed.

As to the defects in the pleadings, and the other informalities in the proceedings, it was said that the Court would look with an indulgent eye upon the pleadings and practice in equity causes in those States, where, no State Court of Chancery existing, the forms of proceeding were less familiar to practitioners. But, it was insisted, that the bill contained a sufficient allegation of the incapacity of Comfort W. to execute the deeds in question, to put that fact distinctly in issue, and it had been met responsively by the answer of the defendant, Handy, explicitly denying it.

Mr. Chief Justice MARSHALL delivered the opinion of the Court, and, after stating the case, proceeded as follows:

The counsel for Asa Handy contend, that the bill seeks to set up a parol trust, which is denied in the answer, and that the decree is founded on a supposed incompetency of Comfort Wheaton to convey his property. The decree, therefore, is not supported by the allegations of the bill.

They, also, contend, that the decree is not sustained by the proofs in the cause.

That the bill alleges the conveyances of the 9th of May to have been received for the benefit of the family, is unquestionable; but this is not incompatible with the incompetency of Comfort Wheaton to execute them. Deeds may be obtained from a weak man for the purpose of preserving his estate for himself and family, and of protecting him from the impositions to which he might be exposed; and there is nothing to restrain one of the heirs, who may think himself aggrieved, from bringing the whole case before a Court of equity. If, indeed, it were true in fact, that the bill does not allege this incompetency so as to put it in issue, the objection would be conclusive; for, it is well settled, that the decree must conform to the allegations of the parties. But, we think, this bill is not justly exposed to this objection. It states the general correct conduct of C. W. during the life of his wife; that, soon after her decease, he was visited by a paralytic stroke, which was followed by a total change in his conduct. He was addicted to intoxication, and to many vicious habits, in the course of which, fears were excited in his family that he would waste all his property, or convey it to his profligate companions. They consulted together, and with their friends; and the first proposition was, to apply to the Court for a guardian to manage his affairs, according to the law of Rhode Island in such cases. It was, however, finally agreed, that Asa Handy should obtain deeds for his property, and hold it for the use of C. W. during his life, and of his heirs after his death. The bill then proceeds to state, that the said Asa Handy, knowing the premises, did induce the said Comfort, ‘he being in the state and condition of body and mind aforesaid,’ for the nominal consideration of 2,178 dollars, to make the conveyances in the bill mentioned.

Although a more direct and positive allegation that C. W. was incapable of transacting business, would have been more satisfactory than the detail of circumstances from which the conclusion is drawn, yet, we think, that the averment of his incompetency is sufficiently explicit to make it a question in the cause. The defendant has met this charge, and we cannot doubt that his answer is sufficiently responsive to the bill, to give him all the benefit which the rules of equity allow to an answer in such circumstances.

We proceed, then, to look into the proofs in the cause, and to inquire whether the testimony establishes the incompetency of C. W. when these deeds were executed.

We have examined with attention the immense mass of contradictory evidence which the record contains. A number of persons, and, among others, the witnesses to the deeds, express the opinion that he was capable of managing his affairs, and of disposing of his property. This evidence, however, is met by such a mass of opposing testimony as can scarcely be resisted. Among the numerous witnesses who testify to the imbecility of his mind, are many who had been long and intimate acquaintances. All his physicians concur in stating, in strong and decided terms, the weakness of his mind, as well as his body, which they ascribe chiefly to the character of his disease. One of them, Doctor Barrows, attended him about the time these deeds were executed. He says, ‘with regard to the state of his mind, at all times when I saw him within the said period, (from the 1st of March to the 25th of November, 1809,) I can say, that he appeared to me wholly incapacitated to transact any money business, or to have the care of any concerns whatever. It is my opinion, that the decay of his mental faculties was such as to induce that state of fatuity which would unfit him for all the purposes relative to the affairs of life, except obeying the various calls of nature.’ Some of the witnesses add to their opinion of his imbecility, some circumstances on which the opinion is founded, which cannot fail to make a deep impression on the mind. Ziba Olney says, that he was acquainted with C. W. for the last five years of his life, who, for the last fifteen months of them, resided in his family. ‘That during the whole of these times he appeared to be childish, and incapable of transacting any business. The reasons of this opinion are, that he would frequently repeat the same questions, and would, several times in the same day, ask what day of the week it was. At short intervals, he would talk rationally, and then would break off from conversation to singing, and from that to crying. That he would frequently go out in the night and day, naked except his shirt. That he would frequently break out in profane language, and, at other times, preach.’ Several other witnesses describe the situation and conduct of this afflicted old gentleman, in a manner to add great weight to their opinion, that his faculties were prostrated. Many even of those witnesses who depose to his competency, declare, that the public opinion and language of his neighbourhood was, that his mind was deplorably impaired; and the conduct and declarations of his family, including the defendant, Asa Handy himself, show a settled conviction that C. W. was incapable of managing his affairs.

There is evidence of the consultations in which Handy participated, previous to the deeds of the 9th of May, for putting the old gentleman and his estate under guardianship; and there is, also, evidence of similar consultation respecting the propriety of procuring a conveyance of his property, in order to save it for himself and his family. This may not be admissible as proof of a trust; but it is strong evidence of a conviction, that the person from whom the deed was to be obtained was unfit for the management of his own affairs. Among other testimony to this point, Abner Daggett deposes, that Asa Handy asked him if he had a notion of buying his father Wheaton’s lot? The witness answered, that he had had some conversation with Wheaton about it; upon which Handy said, Wheaton was no more capable of selling his estate than a child. The witness was deterred from purchasing, though he wished to acquire the lot, by the fear of subsequent controversy.

The great and sudden revolution in the whole conduct of C. W., immediately after the first paralytic stroke, viewed in connexion with his advanced age, is a strong circumstance in corroboration of the opinion that his mind was diseased. A sober, prudent, reflecting, and moral man, between seventy and eighty years of age, mingles with profligate people, to whom he devotes himself, and becomes suddenly intemperate, immoral, and childishly whimsical and indiscreet, so that his nearest friends think it necessary to put it out of his power to ruin himself.

The terms on which the old gentleman stood with his family, are not entirely unworthy of consideration. But two of his children, Caleb, and Mary, the wife of the defendant Asa, lived near him. From causes, some of which may be discerned in the record, he was on ill terms with Caleb. One of the witness deposes, that he said, on one occasion, ‘You know, Asa, I made you the deeds to spite Caleb.’ There is other testimony to the same effect. The necessary consequence of this quarrel with Caleb, was, to subject him, in an increased degree, to the influence of Mary Handy and her husband, and exposes the deeds conveying all his property to them, to an increased degree of suspicion.

The inadequacy of the consideration, as stated in the bonds referred to in the answer, furnishes an additional argument against these deeds. It was chiefly the support of C. W. for the residue of his life. This proved to be five years, which was a longer time than his age, and state of health, at the time of the transaction, rendered probable; but which was certainly not a full consideration for the property.

These various circumstances add so much weight to the opinions of those who depose to the incompetence of C. W., that the mind cannot withhold its assent from that conclusion. An issue, indeed, might have been directed; but we do not think it a case in which this course ought to have been pursued. The degree of weakness, or of imposition, which ought to induce a Court of Chancery to set aside a conveyance, is proper for the consideration of the Court itself; and there seems to be no reason for the intervention of a jury, unless the case be one in which the Court would be satisfied with the verdict, however it might be found. A verdict affirming the capacity of C. W. to execute these deeds on the 9th of May, 1805, could not, we think, have been satisfactory to the Court; and it was, consequently, not necessary to refer the question of competency to a jury.

If these deeds were obtained by the exercise of undue influence over a man whose mind had ceased to be the safe guide of his actions, it is against conscience for him who has obtained them to derive any advantage from them. It is the peculiar province of a Court of conscience, to set them aside. That a Court of equity will interpose in such a case, is among its best settled principles. The cases cited in the argument, which we will not repeat, place this beyond the possibility of question. It was, therefore, proper to set aside the deeds, and to direct the defendant, Handy, to account for the money he had received under them.

But, although that defendant ought not to be permitted to benefit himself by his own improper act, it is not reasonable that he should be burthened with the debts of C. W., and the expenses of his maintenance. These are proper charges on the estate itself. So are improvements and repairs which enhanced the rents, and the value of the estate. As a defendant in equity, Asa Handy has certainly a right to retain them, and to receive credit for them in the account which was directed by the Circuit Court.

There is, we think, no error in the manner in which the account was directed to be taken.

The parties were heard before the Master, who, after a very laborious and comprehensive examination of their accounts, has made a voluminous report, to which both parties have excepted.

It may be observed, generally, that it is not the province of a Court to investigate items of an account. The report of the master is received as true, when no exception is taken; and the exceptions are to be regarded so far only as they are supported by the special statements of the Master, or by evidence, which ought to be brought before the Court by a reference to the particular testimony on which the exceptor relies. Were it otherwise, were the Court to look into the immense mass of testimony laid before the Commissioner, the reference to him would be of little avail. Such testimony, indeed, need not be reported farther than it is relied on to support, explain, or oppose, a particular exception.

  1. The first exception made by Handy is, that only the sum of 5,448 dollars 26 cents, were allowed him by the Commissioner, instead of 101,167 dollars, 30 cents, the amount of his claim. This is a general exception, which comprehends, it is supposed, the particular alleged errors enumerated in the subsequent exceptions.
  2. The second exception is, that the Master did not admit his whole account on his own oath.

The conduct observed by the Master on this point, is thus specially stated by himself. ‘I admitted said Asa to make oath to all charges, whether for money, specific articles, or services, which, from the circumstances of the parties, or the nature of the charge itself, could not, in my opinion, be proved by vouchers, or other legal evidence.’

This rule, adopted by the Master, is, in our opinion, one to which Handy could make no just objection. There can be no propriety in admitting the party as a witness to support items in an account, which, from their character, admit of full proof. Of this description are the items which constitute his third exception. It is the demand of testimony to support his charges for repairs and improvements. These repairs and improvements are susceptible of complete proof; and, as there could be no difficulty in procuring it, the Commissioner did right in requiring it. The fourth exception is to the rejection of his oath to discharge himself from rents, which, as he alleged, he had not received.

The Commissioner has made considerable deductions from the total amount of rent, if calculated for the whole time, but has rejected the oath of Handy, because he admitted that he had kept legers in which his receipts of rents were regularly entered, which were still in his possession, but which he refused to produce. The decision of the Master on this point was so obviously right, that it need only be stated to be approved.

  1. The fifth exception is, that the Master has not allowed for repairs and improvements according to the measurement of Nathan Parks, which was on oath, but according to the estimate of John Newman, which was not founded on actual measurement, but made principally by the eye.

The Master reports, that, ‘in addition to the evidence produced by the parties, I appointed John Newman, an experienced and skilful measurer of carpenters’ work, to go on the premises, together with the said Handy and myself, and to measure and estimate all such repairs, and alterations, and buildings, as said Handy, being under oath, should point out as being made and executed by him.’ The estimate of the said Newman, with his deposition, are referred to, and annexed to the report.

Notes for Daniel WHEATON:

Information from David J WHEATON 12th September 2004

The name WHEATON is often spelled WHETON or WHETEN in genealogy records. It is indicated that Daniel was from Holliston, Massachusetts.

 

In April 1778 Daniel joined the army at Fishkill, New York during the Revolutionary War. He was listed as a resident of Hopkington, was 44 years old and 6 ft. tall. He enlisted in Captain PERRY’s Company, Colonel BALLARD’s Regiment. Operations in the upper Hudson were designed to keep the British army from breaking out of New York City, which they captured in 1776. Most important is the clue that Daniel WHEATON was 44 years old in 1778, which suggests a birth in 1733/4″

Notes for Unity BULLEN:

Information from David J WHEATON 25/11/2004

25 September 2004 Report

Earlier estimates were that Unity was probably born about 1737, based on an age of 21 at marriage. the vital records of Sherborn, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts, found that a somewhat older Unity BULLEN was born in Sherborn in 1726, the daughter of Ephrain and Ruth BULLEN. the following children of Ephraim and Ruth are recorded in the town vital records of Sherborn.

 

Ruth           b. 7 August 1712; m. Seth Partridge of Medway, 11 September 1740

Ephraim     b. 18 February 1713/4; d. 26 November 1715

Grace         b. 13 October 1715

Elizabeth   b. 2 November 1717; d. 27 December 1751

Ephraim     b. 31 January 1719/20; d. 1 February 1754

Joseph       b. 26 February 1721/2; d. 13 January 1748/9

Mary           b. 13 February 1723/4; m. Nathan Stratten, 12 April 1760

Unity           b. 30 August 1726; m. Daniel Wheaton of Medway, 6 July 1758

Abigail       b. 13 February 1733/4; m. Henry Morse of Medway, 8 November 1755

 

Since no other Unity BULLEN was found in Sherborn, it seemed likely that she was the one who married Daniel WHEATON, but her age of 32 was considerably older than the typical 18th century bride. Nevertheless, the probate records of her father, Ephrain BULLEN, confirm that his daughter was in fact the wife of Daniel WHEATON. Ephraim BULLEN of SHERBORN died intestate before 17 February1761, when Nathan STRATTON was appointed to administer the estate. Although Ephraim left no will, one of the estate documents, dated 10 March 1761 was signed by the following heirs:

Seth PARTRIDGE

Ruth PARTRIDGE

James MORSE

Grace MORSE

Daniel WHETON

Unity WHETON

Henry MORSE Jr

Abigail MORSE

widow Ruth BULLEN

No marriage record was found for Grace BULLEN and James MORSE in Sherborn. However, it seems highly likely that the relevant marriage was found in Boston vital records. Grace BULLEN and James “MOSS” were married at King’s Chapel, Boston, on 24 December 1745

 

In October 2005 David J WHEATON and his wife visited Massachusetts. He writes:

Unity was the second great granddaughter of Jonathan FAIRBANKS. Jonathan and Grace FAIRBANKS had built about 1636 the Fairbanks House in Dedham, MA. This house is the oldest surviving timber-frame house in North America. We spent an enjoyable hour tour of the house with the curator.

The sloop “Greenwich Packet” was returning from Philadelphia at night on the Delaware River. A sudden gust of wind caused the sloop to heave to one side and the stone step cargo shifed causing the sloop to overturn. Isaac WHEATON had purchased the stone step for the side entrance to the Roadstone Baptist Church. Isaac was accompanied by his daughter Hannah and her friend. Hannah had purchased her trousseau for her upcoming wedding. Isaac, Hannah, her friend and Captain Davis’s son were drowned. Many years later during the second world war while dredging the Delaware River the stone step was recovered and returned to the church.

M Reuben of Normanskill [Normanskill is a hamlet that is part of the Town of Bethlehem. Normanskill was the first settlement in what is today the Town of Bethlehem and is named for the creek that runs alongside it. While historic, it is today relatively isolated from the rest of the town, and is only accessible from a small yellow-brick road off Delaware Avenue. The small bridge over the Normanskill (the one just north of the much larger Delaware Ave. bridge) has been closed to all vehicular traffic, although it can be walked over, leading to a similar community on the Albany, NY side of the creek.]

Comment from JKW 17/2/2013.

If the suggestion that William died between 1800 and 1810 is correct this could not be the William who married Orpha BROOKS as they had children after this date and William died in 1857

 

Information from Kelly WHEATON 17/2/2013

1800 census for Duanseburgh, Dutchess Co, NY (later Schnectady) pg 29 Lists Thomas Lad living next door to William WHEATON: 1 male 10 years or under, 1 female 26-45, 1 female 10 years or under, 1 female 26-45. This would suggest that Thomas was named after his neighbor. No probate, land or other records have been located and it seems not unlikely that William died between 1800-1810.

On the Land Patents web site: http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/PatentSearch/Results.asp?QryId=53667.48 there is an entry for an Ephraim WHEATON in Ingham County, Michigan on the 5/3/1837 made in the Detroit Land Office. Could it be this Ephraim? I asked this question originally, and Theresa Wheaton BOHLE has now confirmed that this indeed this Ephraim.

 

Information from Theresa Bohle Wheaton 19/3/2002

“I had trouble locating Ephraim’s Revolutionary War records…. – his name is listed as Ephraim “WHEDON”. All the other information fits my Ephraim including his wife’s name, Eunice PITCHER. Also discovered that Eunice had a sister who married a “Marshal WHEDON” just two years before she and Ephraim were married.

 

Information from Theresa Wheaton BOHLE March 2006

Ephraim WHEATON appeared in court on January 8,1823 to ask for his Revolutionary War Pension in Niagara County, New York:

Ephraim WHEDON, or WHEATON of Niagara Cty in the State of New York who was a Fifer’ in the Company commanded by Captain DEAN of the Regiment commanded by Colonel TUPPER in the Massachusetts line. The said Ephraim WHEDON, or WHEATON enlisted in North Hampton, County of Hampshire in the State of Massachusetts on the 14th day of February 1781 for the term of three years. Ephraim WHEDON, or WHEATON was honorably discharged from the said service at West Point, New York 1784.

 

Notes for EPHRAIM WHEATON OR WHEDON:

Obituary of Ephraim Wheaton

“On the morning of April 27, 1853 at his home in Stockbridge, Ingham County Ephraim WHEATON passed on at the advanced age of 95 years. Mr. WHEATON was formerly a resident of Niagra Co., New York and immigrated to Michigan in 1838. He was a soldier in General WASHINGTON’s army during the last three years of our struggle for independence and was present at the taking of Cornwalles. He was ever a true patriot and seemed fully to realize the blessing of a free government. He must be among the last of the revolutionary pensioners. May their achievements and patriotism be held in grateful remembrance by their children to the later generations.”

I have been searching the WHEATON family for the last 45 years as my gg grandfather was Horace Hosea WHEATON b. Jan 15, 1795 in Vermont. DNA testing has now given me new evidence as to what family he is a descendant from. I believe the following connections in the Robert and Thomas WHEADON/WHEATON genealogies need to be corrected. My reasoning for these conclusions are due to the bible records, tombstone wording and Pedigree charts on Rootsweb’s WorldConnect Project: Rehoboth Roots.

 

Bible Records

The WHEATON Family found at The Newberry Library, in Chicago, Illinois

Gen. Case fE 71 W 5665 pp 1-6 ancestry.com states that they have these records.

“Esek, son of Joseph and Lydia WHEATON m. Eunice SKEELS; lived a time in Merryall, then settled in Marbledale, where he died. Several of his children settled in Pompey, N. Y.

 

Information from the Circular Chart sent by Bonnie WHEATON 12/2004 has the oldest child born 1787 and the second to youngest in 1827 (All other birth dates are approximate to fit with these two dates). The difference between 1787 and 1827 is 40 years. so if Eunice began having children when she was 17, she would have been over 57 when the last child was born. Accurate information required.

 

We have now found out that one of the children was born in 1774, and that Eunice herself was born in 1754, making her 73 in 1827 when the last of the children reputed to be hers was born. So, who did Ellen and Flora belong to?

 

And later still, from the web page mentioned below it has been found that the two girls were daughters of Myron B WHEATON and his wife Nancy.

CHAPTER XIX. THE NORTH END

 

The Northville Burying Place.

 

Sacred

to the memory of

ESEK WHEATON

who died

June 2, 1830

Aged 82.

 

The Friend Meeting-House.

 

Jemima WILKINSON, an impostor, was born in Rhode Island, about 1753, and was educated a Quaker. She was artful, bold, and zealous. About 1772, when she recovered from a fit of sickness, in which she had been apparently dead, she asserted that her spirit went to heaven where it remained, and that her body was reanimated with the spirit and power of Christ, upon which she set up as a public teacher; and declared she had an immediate revelation for all she delivered, and was arrived at a state of absolute perfection.

 

Jemima WILKINSON came to New Milford in 1782, and held meetings and taught her peculiar doctrines or pretentions, and after a time she found some adherents in the vicinity of Northville. She held meetings for a time in the dwelling-house of Esek WHEATON, a little distance north of the Northville Burying-ground, and perhaps at other houses in that community.

 

St. Andrew’s Church in Marbledale.

 

As seen in the chapter on New Preston, among the early settlers of that place were persons who adhered to the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Thomas DAVIES baptized a number of children in that place during the years 1764 and 1765; and held several sevices there during that time.

 

In a letter dated June 25, 1764, Mr. DAVIES says: “In New Preston, a parish in Kent, they have most of the material for building a church which they determine to erect next summer, forty-five by thirty-five feet.” In another letter dated June, 1765, he wrote: “The church I mentioned, which was to be erected this last spring in New Preston, is postponed until the next on account of the people’s incapacity; not that they are so distressingly poor, but because there is no money in circulation.” It is probable this church edifice was erected soon after, and stood on land now owned by Mr. George S. HOLT, a short distance east from Mr. David BURMHAM’s store in the village of New Preston.

 

The parish records of St. Andrew’s Church begin at a meeting held under the Act of the General Assembly, as to the organization of religious bodies, directed by William COGSWELL, justice of the peace. On June 24, 1784, John ITCHCOCK, Esqr., moderator, Stephen MOREHOUSE was chosen clerk, and sworn according to law, and Sylvester WHEATON, Jerod SPERRY, and Peter PORTER, were chosen society’s committee.

 

“At a meeting warned and held June 26. 1784, the inhabitants of New Preston and East-Witch [Warren] of the denomination of the Church of England so called parishes, having formed themselves into a lawful society according to the late act of the General Assembly of this state of Connecticut:

 

We, the subscribers whose names are underwritten, being desirous for the promoting religion and good order, do acknowledge ourselves to be and belong to the above said body; and do by these presents form and incorporate into said society, as witness our hands.”

Test, a true record from the assignments,

 

STEPHEN MOREHOUSE, Register”

 

At a meeting held at the Church in New Preston, Aug. 23, 1784, Capt Peter PORTER, moderator.

 

“Voted to hire preaching or some candidate to read prayers according to our subscription. For collectors:-Samuel LITTLEFIELD, for East Greenwitch and the Great Hollow [Warren and Kent Hollow], Jesse BAKER for Washington, David PEET for New Milford.”

 

The Rev. Richard CLARKE had charge of this parish in Connecticut with New Milford and other places after the death of the Rev. Thomas DAVIES, from 1767 to 1783; and some difficulty arose between the parish and Mr. CLARK, so that they “voted that Sylvester WHEATON be a committee to carry on the suit with Mr. CLARK, and to employ an attorney on our behalf.” The question of difference seems to have been as to Mr. CLARK’s salary, for the parish in 1785 appointed Sylvester WHEATON, Samuel LITTLEFIELD, Elijah WALLER, Israel SPERRY, and John PEET, a committee “to treat with Mr. CLARK and to settle with him from December, 1767, to December, 1783,” if they could, but in the effort they failed, and hence the suit, of which we have no further information.

 

During the Revolutionary War, such was the feeling towards the Church of England, here, that it was necessary for the preservation of the Church to discontinue services and board up the windows, as some thought it a display of patriotism to throw stones through the windows and otherwise injure the building, and services were held occasionally at private houses. There is no evidence of disloyalty to the colonies on the part of the church. Two sons of Joseph WHEATON, a leading member of this parish, were in the war, and they, Benjamin and Joseph, Jr., were soldiers and were taken prisoners and suffered all the horrors of imprisonment in New York, during its occupancy by the British. Upon the entrance of the American army into that city their brother Sylvester WHEATON, going to assist them home, carried one brother in his arms out of the city, and leaving him to go for the other, on his return found the first one dead, and the other did not live to return home.

 

The Rev. Ashbel BALDWIN was the first settled minister after the organization under the statute law, after the Revolution.

 

The parish was connected with the parishes of Washington, Kent, New Milford, and New Fairfield, as a vote taken Sept. 1, 1787, shows the laying of a tax of two pence on the pound ” to be used in connection with those parishes, or otherwise as the committee see best for us in general.”

 

At a society’s meeting, April 6, 1790, “Voted that the societies belonging to New Preston will assist Mr. Elijah WALLER in trying a suit at law with the Washington collectors for taking Waller’s money for the Presbyterian Order, and bear the cost and counsel that shall arise before a single justice of the peace, and if judgment shall come out in his favor the money shall be cast into the treasury of New Preston.”

 

“October 29, 1790. Voted to raise twenty-eight pounds lawful money-the two-thirds in produce, the one-third in money for the support of the Rev. Truman MARSM, provided he will hold himself to be our incumbent, the same to be”paid to Mr. MARSH by the first of January annually.” Mr. MARSH was their Rector until October 31, 1799; residing in New Milford and serving the Episcopal Church at that place during the same time.

 

At a meeting held Jan. 2, 1791, soon after Mr. Marsh’s settlement here, they voted that the standing committee should go with James BOZWORTH, Sylvester WHEATON, and Stephen MOREHOUSE, and view the church to see what alterations it was best to make, and in accordance with the report they voted to “lower the church to one tier of windows, proportionable to a handsome conveniency with one front gallery, as Messrs. James BOZWORTH and Sylvester WHEATON shall say.” At that time New Preston Hill was the more important place, and soon a committee was appointed to place a stake not over forty rods from the Rev. Mr. DAY’s meeting-house, as a location on which to build a church or to which to remove the old one.

 

In 1793, the first record is made about buying the Friends’ meeting-house which stood at the north end of the Northville burying-place. This was the one that Jemima WILKINSON preached in four or five years; she having been removed some years to the Genesee country.

 

At a meeting held Aug. 25, 1796, it was voted to buy “the Friends’ meeting-house on condition that the subscription should be sufficient.” This house was purchased but subsequent events have demonstrated the movement to leave New Preston village one of great error, for by it they lost a large part of the northern portion of the parish, and that loss has never been recovered. The decay of the marble business in Marbledale and the attractions of Lake Waraumaug as a summer resort have made New Preston-known for many years as Waraumaug-the center of business and social life for this region of country, and in all probability had the location of the church never been changed it would have attained a larger influence than it now holds.

 

The Rev. Joseph PERRY succeeded Rev. Mr. MARSH as acting clergyman to this parish, remaining until September, 1802, after which there was a vacancy until the settlement of the Rev. Benjamin BENHAM in January, 1807. He continued rector in connection with the Churches of New Milford and Roxbury until 1812; when he was succeeded in St. Andrew’s parish by the Rev. Sturges GILBERT, who was, at his own request, dismissed by vote of the parish, Sept. 21, 1816.

 

At this time the question of a new house of worship was agitated, and it was decided inexpedient to repair the church, and a vote was passed that it was expedient to erect a new church on New Preston Hill, and that if $1,600 could be raised by subscription, to proceed to build the church. The ground was purchased on New Preston Hill, in accordance with this vote, but there being a difference of opinion the matter was delayed, and finally it was built where it now stands in Marbledale village.

 

After the dismissal of the Rev. Mr. GILBERT there are records of services held by the Rev. Mr. GLOVER and the Rev. Samuel B. HALL.

 

The Rev. George B. ANDREWS was settled herein 1819; he being a very capable minister, and during his rectorship the present church edifice was erected, and upon the completion of it the following request was made for its dedication.

 

OCTOBER 14, 1823.

To the Rt. Rev. THOMAS C. BROWNELL, Bishop of the Diocese of Connecticut:

 

  1. REV. SIR: The people of the Parish of New Preston having erected a house for Divine worship:

 

We the Wardens and Vestrymen of the parish request that the said building be consecrated to the service of Almighty God, according to the rites and usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church.

 

GIDEON STARR                 WILLIAM HANDFORD,

JOHN COGSHALL                 ERASTUS LOVERIDGE,

Wardens.                     ALVIN BROWN,

Vestrymen.

 

In the Bishop’s report at the next convention he said: “At New Preston on the 16th [of October, 1823] consecrated the new edifice by the name of St. Andrew’s Church. The occasion excited a lively interest, and drew together a large concourse of people, among whom were thirteen of the clergy of our church. The new edifice thus consecrated to the worship of God does great credit to the zeal and liberality of the parish. It is constructed of durable material, and in the Gothic style of architecture. The interior is well finished and conveniently arranged, and the decorations of the pulpit, chancel, and desk are handsome and appropriate. The congregation is not large nor wealthy, yet the spirit with which they are animated has enabled them to erect the church within a very short period, and to pay for it entirely from their own resources.

CHAPTER XIX. THE NORTH END

 

The Northville Burying Place

This ground is located on a sandy hill, at the north end of the vicinity which

was called the Thousand Hills; and is about halfway between Northville and

Marbledale:

 

To

the memory of

SYLVESTER WHEATON

who died

Nov 27, A D 1835

aged 83 years

& 4 months.

 

The Marble Quarries of Marbledale.

 

There is a ledge of marble extending in a southwesterly direction, in the valley, on the east side of the East Aspetuck River, crossing the Housatonic at the Little Falls, and continuing into Brookfield, where the same ledge affords limestone in considerable quantities. At what time these quarries began to be worked is not definitely known, but some of the oldest tombstones from these quarries are nearly one hundred years -old; and in some houses erected in Revolutionary times there have been found beautiful clouded marble facings, to fireplaces, which are said to have1 been obtained near the mill at the Little Falls. The rock in this ledge is said to be too much broken to be quarried with profit. About 1820 and 30, the Aspetuck valley was very much astir with saw-mills for sawing marble tombstones, specially, there having been about twenty of these mills between Waraumaug Lake and Northville. There are now but three or four, and these obtain their marble material from other places than

this town. The rock here, in general, has too much lime in it to be durable as desired for tombstones.

 

About the year 1800 Philo TOMLINSON, of Derby, and Samuel BASSETT of New Preston opened a quarry on land of the latter a short distance northeast of the Rectory in Marbledale and built a mill where the mill of the late George W.COGSWELL now stands, said to have been the first stone saw-mill erected in the state of Connecticut Philo TOMLINSON was the inventor of the automatic feeder by which sand and water were applied to the saws while in operation. Mr. TOMLINSON, with his sons Abijah and Eliphalet, soon after removed to New Preston and opened a quarry on land belonging to Orange WHEATON in company with Christopher ALLEN, about the same time a quarry, was opened on land of Gideon Starr by Capt. John B. ALLEN, who was succeeded by Medad S. GOODSELL who prosecuted the business with energy and success. Sylvester S. WHEATON had a quarry connected with the TOMLINSON quarry, and the TOMLINSON WHEATON and Allen GOODSELL quarries were more extensively worked than any others.

 

The following were among those who were engaged in this business: Jabez and Cyrus MOREHOUSE, Nathaniel, Thomas, and Nathan TAYLOR, William MORSE, Elisha and Geo. W. COGSWELL, Reuben BOLLES and Sons, and several others of New Preston.

 

St. Andrew’s Church in Marbledale.

 

As seen in the chapter on New Preston, among the early settlers of that place were persons who adhered to the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Thomas DAVIES baptized a number of children in that place during the years 1764 and 1765; and held several sevices there during that time.

 

In a letter dated June 25, 1764, Mr. DAVIES says: “In New Preston, a parish in Kent, they have most of the material for building a church which they determine to erect next summer, forty-five by thirty-five feet.” In another letter dated June, 1765, he wrote: “The church I mentioned, which was to be erected this last spring in New Preston, is postponed until the next on account of the people’s incapacity; not that they are so distressingly poor, but because there is no money in circulation.” It is probable this church edifice was erected soon after, and stood on land now owned by Mr. George S. HOLT, a short distance east from Mr. David BURMHAM’s store in the village of New Preston.

 

The parish records of St. Andrew’s Church begin at a meeting held under the Act of the General Assembly, as to the organization of religious bodies, directed by William COGSWELL, justice of the peace. On June 24, 1784, John ITCHCOCK, Esqr., moderator, Stephen MOREHOUSE was chosen clerk, and sworn according to law, and Sylvester WHEATON, Jerod SPERRY, and Peter PORTER, were chosen society’s committee.

 

“At a meeting warned and held June 26. 1784, the inhabitants of New Preston and East-Witch [Warren] of the denomination of the Church of England so called parishes, having formed themselves into a lawful society according to the late act of the General Assembly of this state of Connecticut:

 

We, the subscribers whose names are underwritten, being desirous for the promoting religion and good order, do acknowledge ourselves to be and belong to the above said body; and do by these presents form and incorporate into said society, as witness our hands.”

Test, a true record from the assignments,

 

STEPHEN MOREHOUSE, Register”

 

At a meeting held at the Church in New Preston, Aug. 23, 1784, Capt Peter PORTER, moderator.

 

“Voted to hire preaching or some candidate to read prayers according to our subscription. For collectors:-Samuel LITTLEFIELD, for East Greenwitch and the Great Hollow [Warren and Kent Hollow], Jesse BAKER for Washington, David PEET for New Milford.”

 

The Rev. Richard CLARKE had charge of this parish in Connecticut with New Milford and other places after the death of the Rev. Thomas DAVIES, from 1767 to 1783; and some difficulty arose between the parish and Mr. CLARK, so that they “voted that Sylvester WHEATON be a committee to carry on the suit with Mr. CLARK, and to employ an attorney on our behalf.” The question of difference seems to have been as to Mr. CLARK’s salary, for the parish in 1785 appointed Sylvester WHEATON, Samuel LITTLEFIELD, Elijah WALLER, Israel SPERRY, and John PEET, a committee “to treat with Mr. CLARK and to settle with him from December, 1767, to December, 1783,” if they could, but in the effort they failed, and hence the suit, of which we have no further information.

 

During the Revolutionary War, such was the feeling towards the Church of England, here, that it was necessary for the preservation of the Church to discontinue services and board up the windows, as some thought it a display of patriotism to throw stones through the windows and otherwise injure the building, and services were held occasionally at private houses. There is no evidence of disloyalty to the colonies on the part of the church. Two sons of Joseph WHEATON, a leading member of this parish, were in the war, and they, Benjamin and Joseph, Jr., were soldiers and were taken prisoners and suffered all the horrors of imprisonment in New York, during its occupancy by the British. Upon the entrance of the American army into that city their brother Sylvester WHEATON, going to assist them home, carried one brother in his arms out of the city, and leaving him to go for the other, on his return found the first one dead, and the other did not live to return home.

 

The Rev. Ashbel BALDWIN was the first settled minister after the organization under the statute law, after the Revolution.

 

The parish was connected with the parishes of Washington, Kent, New Milford, and New Fairfield, as a vote taken Sept. 1, 1787, shows the laying of a tax of two pence on the pound ” to be used in connection with those parishes, or otherwise as the committee see best for us in general.”

 

At a society’s meeting, April 6, 1790, “Voted that the societies belonging to New Preston will assist Mr. Elijah WALLER in trying a suit at law with the Washington collectors for taking Waller’s money for the Presbyterian Order, and bear the cost and counsel that shall arise before a single justice of the peace, and if judgment shall come out in his favor the money shall be cast into the treasury of New Preston.”

 

“October 29, 1790. Voted to raise twenty-eight pounds lawful money-the two-thirds in produce, the one-third in money for the support of the Rev. Truman MARSM, provided he will hold himself to be our incumbent, the same to be”paid to Mr. MARSH by the first of January annually.” Mr. MARSH was their Rector until October 31, 1799; residing in New Milford and serving the Episcopal Church at that place during the same time.

 

At a meeting held Jan. 2, 1791, soon after Mr. Marsh’s settlement here, they voted that the standing committee should go with James BOZWORTH, Sylvester WHEATON, and Stephen MOREHOUSE, and view the church to see what alterations it was best to make, and in accordance with the report they voted to “lower the church to one tier of windows, proportionable to a handsome conveniency with one front gallery, as Messrs. James BOZWORTH and Sylvester WHEATON shall say.” At that time New Preston Hill was the more important place, and soon a committee was appointed to place a stake not over forty rods from the Rev. Mr. DAY’s meeting-house, as a location on which to build a church or to which to remove the old one.

 

In 1793, the first record is made about buying the Friends’ meeting-house which stood at the north end of the Northville burying-place. This was the one that Jemima WILKINSON preached in four or five years; she having been removed some years to the Genesee country.

 

At a meeting held Aug. 25, 1796, it was voted to buy “the Friends’

meeting-house on condition that the subscription should be sufficient.” This house was purchased but subsequent events have demonstrated the movement to leave New Preston village one of great error, for by it they lost a large part of the northern portion of the parish, and that loss has never been recovered. The decay of the marble business in Marbledale and the attractions of Lake Waraumaug as a summer resort have made New Preston-known for many years as Waraumaug-the center of business and social life for this region of country, and in all probability had the location of the church never been changed it would have attained a larger influence than it now holds.

 

The Rev. Joseph PERRY succeeded Rev. Mr. MARSH as acting clergyman to this parish, remaining until September, 1802, after which there was a vacancy until the settlement of the Rev. Benjamin BENHAM in January, 1807. He continued rector in connection with the Churches of New Milford and Roxbury until 1812; when he was succeeded in St. Andrew’s parish by the Rev. Sturges GILBERT, who was, at his own request, dismissed by vote of the parish, Sept. 21, 1816.

 

At this time the question of a new house of worship was agitated, and it was decided inexpedient to repair the church, and a vote was passed that it was expedient to erect a new church on New Preston Hill, and that if $1,600 could be raised by subscription, to proceed to build the church. The ground was purchased on New Preston Hill, in accordance with this vote, but there being a difference of opinion the matter was delayed, and finally it was built where it now stands

in Marbledale village.

 

After the dismissal of the Rev. Mr. GILBERT there are records of services held by the Rev. Mr. GLOVER and the Rev. Samuel B. HALL.

 

The Rev. George B. ANDREWS was settled herein 1819; he being a very capable minister, and during his rectorship the present church edifice was erected, and upon the completion of it the following request was made for its dedication.

 

OCTOBER 14, 1823.

To the Rt. Rev. THOMAS C. BROWNELL, Bishop of the Diocese of Connecticut:

 

  1. REV. SIR: The people of the Parish of New Preston having erected a house for Divine worship:

 

We the Wardens and Vestrymen of the parish request that the said building be consecrated to the service of Almighty God, according to the rites and usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church.

 

GIDEON STARR                 WILLIAM HANDFORD,

JOHN COGSHALL                 ERASTUS LOVERIDGE,

Wardens.                     ALVIN BROWN,

Vestrymen.

 

In the Bishop’s report at the next convention he said: “At New Preston on the 16th [of October, 1823] consecrated the new edifice by the name of St. Andrew’s Church. The occasion excited a lively interest, and drew together a large concourse of people, among whom were thirteen of the clergy of our church. The new edifice thus consecrated to the worship of God does great credit to the zeal and liberality of the parish. It is constructed of durable material, and in the Gothic style of architecture. The interior is well finished and conveniently arranged, and the decorations of the pulpit, chancel, and desk are handsome and appropriate. The congregation is not large nor wealthy, yet the spirit with which they are animated has enabled them to erect the church within a very short period, and to pay for it entirely from their own resources. Some may have spared from their exigencies, yet it is believed they are far from feeling impoverished by their exertions, and they may have a religious trust that what they have thus lent unto the Lord will be repaid in blessings on themselves and their posterity.”

 

In 1826 and 7 the Rev. Ezra B. KELLOGG was the officiating minister, the Rev. Mr. ANDREWS in charge; in 1829 the Rev. Henry FINCH; in 1830 the Rev. Isaac JONES; in 1831 the Rev. Henry S. ATWATER; in 1836 the Rev. Enoch HUNTINGTON, of New Milford; in 1838 the Rev. Riverius CAMP, who was succeeded by the Rev. Henry Beers SHERMAN; in 1839 the Rev. George Sewell GORDEON; in 1844 the Rev. Alfred Marsen LOUTREL; in 1846 the Rev. William LONG; in 1849the Rev. James L. SCOTT; in 1853 the Rev. Nathaniel S. WHEATON, D.D., while the church was being repaired; in 1853 to Easter, 1854, the Rev. Robert F. CLUTE, and then the Rev. James L. SCOTT to December, 1867; from August, 1868, the Rev. Henry C. RANDALL to Nov. 17, 1869; the Rev. Charles HUSBAND, who died Dec. 20, 1870; and in 1872 the Rev. John N. MERWIN, who died May 17, 1874. On June 28, 1874, the Rev. William S. PECK was settled as rector, and continues active and successful at the present time.

 

Two bequests are held for the benefit of pew-holders in this church; one was given by the late Samuel HILL for the benefit of those who reside in New Milford in New Preston Society, which amounts at present to $1,900; and one of $500 given by the late Nathaniel BROWN to be applied to all members outside of the above stated limits.

 

In 1853 the Rev. Nathaniel S. WHEATON, D.D., son of Sylvester and grandson of Joseph WHEATON, one of the first settlers and churchmen of New Preston, purchased and gave to the parish the rectory, now occupied by the rector, at an expense of $1,250. About the same time the church was much enlarged and improved at an expense of over $2,000, to which he contributed liberally.

Nathaniel Sheldon Wheaton

 

WHEATON, Nathaniel Sheldon, clergyman, born in Washington, Connecticut, 20 August, 1792 ; died in Marbledale, Connecticut, 18 March, 1862. He was graduated at Yale in 1814, and after residing four years in Maryland, where he was ordained by Bishop KEMP was elected rector of Christ church, Hartford, Connecticut While discharging the duties of this office he took an active interest in the plans for the establishment of a second college in Connecticut, at least one vigorous pamphlet in its defence being from his pen. He was one of the original corporators of Washington (now Trinity) college, and was almost immediately (in 1823)deputed to visit England in the interests of the new institution, tie secured donations of books for the library, and made purchases of philosophical apparatus. While abroad he also made a special study of architect-sire, which enabled him to prepare plans, even to minute details, for the new Christ church in Hart ford, which was consecrated in 1829. At the time, perhaps, it was the best specimen of Gothic architecture in the country. On the retirement of Bishop BROWNELL from the presidency of Washington college in 1831, Dr. WHEATON was chosen his successor, he labored untiringly for the good of the institution, making liberal gifts and securing the endowment of two professorships, besides large additions to the general funds. Under his direction the college campus–the site that is now occupied by the state capitol–was carefully laid out and planted with trees. In 1837 Dr. WHEATON accepted the rectorship of Christ church, New Orleans, Louisiana, where he remained seven years, his courage and faithfulness being especially shown in his unremitting attention to his duties while the city was ravaged by the yellow fever. Resigning in 1844, he again visited Europe, and then resided for a short time in Hartford, unable, by reason of feeble health, to undertake regular duties, he soon withdrew to his native town, where he resided for the rest of his life, officiating in different places in the neighborhood as he was able. At his death he left to Trinity college his valuable library, besides a legacy is money, part of which was designated as the nucleus of a chapel fund. The large window in the new chancel of Christ church, Hartford, is in his memory. He received the degree of D. D. from Yale in 1833. The journal of his travels abroad in 1823-‘4 was published in one volume (Hartford, 1830), and he also issued “Remarks on Washington College” (anonymous) and a ” Discourse on the Epistle to Philemon.”

The Marble Quarries of Marbledale.

 

There is a ledge of marble extending in a southwesterly direction, in the valley, on the east side of the East Aspetuck River, crossing the Housatonic at the Little Falls, and continuing into Brookfield, where the same ledge affords limestone in considerable quantities. At what time these quarries began to be worked is not definitely known, but some of the oldest tombstones from these quarries are nearly one hundred years -old; and in some houses erected in Revolutionary times there have been found beautiful clouded marble facings, to fireplaces, which are said to have1 been obtained near the mill at the Little Falls. The rock in this ledge is said to be too much broken to be quarried with profit. About 1820 and 30, the Aspetuck valley was very much astir with saw-mills for sawing marble tombstones, specially, there having been about twenty of these mills between Waraumaug Lake and Northville. There are now but three or four, and these obtain their marble material from other places than

this town. The rock here, in general, has too much lime in it to be durable as desired for tombstones.

 

About the year 1800 Philo TOMLINSON, of Derby, and Samuel BASSETT of New Preston opened a quarry on land of the latter a short distance northeast of the Rectory in Marbledale and built a mill where the mill of the late George W.COGSWELL now stands, said to have been the first stone saw-mill erected in the state of Connecticut Philo TOMLINSON was the inventor of the automatic feeder by which sand and water were applied to the saws while in operation. Mr. TOMLINSON, with his sons Abijah and Eliphalet, soon after removed to New Preston and opened a quarry on land belonging to Orange WHEATON in company with Christopher ALLEN, about the same time a quarry, was opened on land of Gideon Starr by Capt. John B. ALLEN, who was succeeded by Medad S. GOODSELL who prosecuted the business with energy and success. Sylvester S. WHEATON had a quarry connected with the TOMLINSON quarry, and the TOMLINSON WHEATON and Allen GOODSELL quarries were more extensively worked than any others.

 

The following were among those who were engaged in this business: Jabez and Cyrus MOREHOUSE, Nathaniel, Thomas, and Nathan TAYLOR, William MORSE, Elisha and Geo. W. COGSWELL, Reuben BOLLES and Sons, and several others of New Preston.

 

St. Andrew’s Church in Marbledale.

 

As seen in the chapter on New Preston, among the early settlers of that place were persons who adhered to the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Thomas DAVIES baptized a number of children in that place during the years 1764 and 1765; and held several sevices there during that time.

 

In a letter dated June 25, 1764, Mr. DAVIES says: “In New Preston, a parish in Kent, they have most of the material for building a church which they determine to erect next summer, forty-five by thirty-five feet.” In another letter dated June, 1765, he wrote: “The church I mentioned, which was to be erected this last spring in New Preston, is postponed until the next on account of the people’s incapacity; not that they are so distressingly poor, but because there is no money in circulation.” It is probable this church edifice was erected soon after, and stood on land now owned by Mr. George S. HOLT, a short distance east from Mr. David BURMHAM’s store in the village of New Preston.

 

The parish records of St. Andrew’s Church begin at a meeting held under the Act of the General Assembly, as to the organization of religious bodies, directed by William COGSWELL, justice of the peace. On June 24, 1784, John ITCHCOCK, Esqr., moderator, Stephen MOREHOUSE was chosen clerk, and sworn according to law, and Sylvester WHEATON, Jerod SPERRY, and Peter PORTER, were chosen society’s committee.

 

“At a meeting warned and held June 26. 1784, the inhabitants of New Preston and East-Witch [Warren] of the denomination of the Church of England so called parishes, having formed themselves into a lawful society according to the late act of the General Assembly of this state of Connecticut:

 

We, the subscribers whose names are underwritten, being desirous for the promoting religion and good order, do acknowledge ourselves to be and belong to the above said body; and do by these presents form and incorporate into said society, as witness our hands.”

Test, a true record from the assignments,

 

STEPHEN MOREHOUSE, Register”

 

At a meeting held at the Church in New Preston, Aug. 23, 1784, Capt Peter PORTER, moderator.

 

“Voted to hire preaching or some candidate to read prayers according to our subscription. For collectors:-Samuel LITTLEFIELD, for East Greenwitch and the Great Hollow [Warren and Kent Hollow], Jesse BAKER for Washington, David PEET for New Milford.”

 

The Rev. Richard CLARKE had charge of this parish in Connecticut with New Milford and other places after the death of the Rev. Thomas DAVIES, from 1767 to 1783; and some difficulty arose between the parish and Mr. CLARK, so that they “voted that Sylvester WHEATON be a committee to carry on the suit with Mr. CLARK, and to employ an attorney on our behalf.” The question of difference seems to have been as to Mr. CLARK’s salary, for the parish in 1785 appointed Sylvester WHEATON, Samuel LITTLEFIELD, Elijah WALLER, Israel SPERRY, and John PEET, a committee “to treat with Mr. CLARK and to settle with him from December, 1767, to December, 1783,” if they could, but in the effort they failed, and hence the suit, of which we have no further information.

 

During the Revolutionary War, such was the feeling towards the Church of England, here, that it was necessary for the preservation of the Church to discontinue services and board up the windows, as some thought it a display of patriotism to throw stones through the windows and otherwise injure the building, and services were held occasionally at private houses. There is no evidence of disloyalty to the colonies on the part of the church. Two sons of Joseph WHEATON, a leading member of this parish, were in the war, and they, Benjamin and Joseph, Jr., were soldiers and were taken prisoners and suffered all the horrors of imprisonment in New York, during its occupancy by the British. Upon the entrance of the American army into that city their brother Sylvester WHEATON, going to assist them home, carried one brother in his arms out of the city, and leaving him to go for the other, on his return found the first one dead, and the other did not live to return home.

 

The Rev. Ashbel BALDWIN was the first settled minister after the organization under the statute law, after the Revolution.

 

The parish was connected with the parishes of Washington, Kent, New Milford, and New Fairfield, as a vote taken Sept. 1, 1787, shows the laying of a tax of two pence on the pound ” to be used in connection with those parishes, or otherwise as the committee see best for us in general.”

 

At a society’s meeting, April 6, 1790, “Voted that the societies belonging to New Preston will assist Mr. Elijah WALLER in trying a suit at law with the Washington collectors for taking Waller’s money for the Presbyterian Order, and bear the cost and counsel that shall arise before a single justice of the peace, and if judgment shall come out in his favor the money shall be cast into the treasury of New Preston.”

 

“October 29, 1790. Voted to raise twenty-eight pounds lawful money-the two-thirds in produce, the one-third in money for the support of the Rev. Truman MARSM, provided he will hold himself to be our incumbent, the same to be”paid to Mr. MARSH by the first of January annually.” Mr. MARSH was their Rector until October 31, 1799; residing in New Milford and serving the Episcopal Church at that place during the same time.

 

At a meeting held Jan. 2, 1791, soon after Mr. Marsh’s settlement here, they voted that the standing committee should go with James BOZWORTH, Sylvester WHEATON, and Stephen MOREHOUSE, and view the church to see what alterations it was best to make, and in accordance with the report they voted to “lower the church to one tier of windows, proportionable to a handsome conveniency with one front gallery, as Messrs. James BOZWORTH and Sylvester WHEATON shall say.” At that time New Preston Hill was the more important place, and soon a committee was appointed to place a stake not over forty rods from the Rev. Mr. DAY’s meeting-house, as a location on which to build a church or to which to remove the old one.

 

In 1793, the first record is made about buying the Friends’ meeting-house which stood at the north end of the Northville burying-place. This was the one that Jemima WILKINSON preached in four or five years; she having been removed some years to the Genesee country.

 

At a meeting held Aug. 25, 1796, it was voted to buy “the Friends’ meeting-house on condition that the subscription should be sufficient.” This house was purchased but subsequent events have demonstrated the movement to leave New Preston village one of great error, for by it they lost a large part of the northern portion of the parish, and that loss has never been recovered. The decay of the marble business in Marbledale and the attractions of Lake Waraumaug as a summer resort have made New Preston-known for many years as Waraumaug-the center of business and social life for this region of country, and in all probability had the location of the church never been changed it would have attained a larger influence than it now holds.

 

The Rev. Joseph PERRY succeeded Rev. Mr. MARSH as acting clergyman to this parish, remaining until September, 1802, after which there was a vacancy until the settlement of the Rev. Benjamin BENHAM in January, 1807. He continued rector in connection with the Churches of New Milford and Roxbury until 1812; when he was succeeded in St. Andrew’s parish by the Rev. Sturges GILBERT, who was, at his own request, dismissed by vote of the parish, Sept. 21, 1816.

 

At this time the question of a new house of worship was agitated, and it was decided inexpedient to repair the church, and a vote was passed that it was expedient to erect a new church on New Preston Hill, and that if $1,600 could be raised by subscription, to proceed to build the church. The ground was purchased on New Preston Hill, in accordance with this vote, but there being a difference of opinion the matter was delayed, and finally it was built where it now stands in Marbledale village.

 

After the dismissal of the Rev. Mr. GILBERT there are records of services held by the Rev. Mr. GLOVER and the Rev. Samuel B. HALL.

 

The Rev. George B. ANDREWS was settled herein 1819; he being a very capable minister, and during his rectorship the present church edifice was erected, and upon the completion of it the following request was made for its dedication.

 

OCTOBER 14, 1823.

To the Rt. Rev. THOMAS C. BROWNELL, Bishop of the Diocese of Connecticut:

 

  1. REV. SIR: The people of the Parish of New Preston having erected a house for Divine worship:

 

We the Wardens and Vestrymen of the parish request that the said building be consecrated to the service of Almighty God, according to the rites and usages of the Protestant Episcopal Church.

 

GIDEON STARR                 WILLIAM HANDFORD,

JOHN COGSHALL                 ERASTUS LOVERIDGE,

Wardens.                     ALVIN BROWN,

Vestrymen.

 

In the Bishop’s report at the next convention he said: “At New Preston on the 16th [of October, 1823] consecrated the new edifice by the name of St. Andrew’s Church. The occasion excited a lively interest, and drew together a large concourse of people, among whom were thirteen of the clergy of our church. The new edifice thus consecrated to the worship of God does great credit to the zeal and liberality of the parish. It is constructed of durable material, and in the Gothic style of architecture. The interior is well finished and conveniently arranged, and the decorations of the pulpit, chancel, and desk are handsome and appropriate. The congregation is not large nor wealthy, yet the spirit with which they are animated has enabled them to erect the church within a very short period, and to pay for it entirely from their own resources. Some may have spared from their exigencies, yet it is believed they are far from feeling impoverished by their exertions, and they may have a religious trust that what they have thus lent unto the Lord will be repaid in blessings on themselves and their posterity.”

 

In 1826 and 7 the Rev. Ezra B. KELLOGG was the officiating minister, the Rev. Mr. ANDREWS in charge; in 1829 the Rev. Henry FINCH; in 1830 the Rev. Isaac JONES; in 1831 the Rev. Henry S. ATWATER; in 1836 the Rev. Enoch HUNTINGTON, of New Milford; in 1838 the Rev. Riverius CAMP, who was succeeded by the Rev. Henry Beers SHERMAN; in 1839 the Rev. George Sewell GORDEON; in 1844 the Rev. Alfred Marsen LOUTREL; in 1846 the Rev. William LONG; in 1849the Rev. James L. SCOTT; in 1853 the Rev. Nathaniel S. WHEATON, D.D., while the church was being repaired; in 1853 to Easter, 1854, the Rev. Robert F. CLUTE, and then the Rev. James L. SCOTT to December, 1867; from August, 1868, the Rev. Henry C. RANDALL to Nov. 17, 1869; the Rev. Charles HUSBAND, who died Dec. 20, 1870; and in 1872 the Rev. John N. MERWIN, who died May 17, 1874. On June 28, 1874, the Rev. William S. PECK was settled as rector, and continues active and successful at the present time.

 

Two bequests are held for the benefit of pew-holders in this church; one was given by the late Samuel HILL for the benefit of those who reside in New Milfordin New Preston Society, which amounts at present to $1,900; and one of $500 given by the late Nathaniel BROWN to be applied to all members outside of the above stated limits.

 

In 1853 the Rev. Nathaniel S. WHEATON, D.D., son of Sylvester and grandson of Joseph WHEATON, one of the first settlers and churchmen of New Preston, purchased and gave to the parish the rectory, now occupied by the rector, at an expense of $1,250. About the same time the church was much enlarged and improved at an expense of over $2,000, to which he contributed liberally.

 

Information from George W WHEATON

Notes: “Empire Over The Dam” – More about Orange –

” While Edward Cogswell is recognized as the first settler in New Preston in September, 1745, another man had preceded him in Marble Dale. He was Joseph Wheaton from Seakonk, Rhode Island, who purchased 130 acres of land on July 6, 1744, from Paul Welch, one of the original grantees in the New Milford-

North Purchase. This purchase was followed on December 6, 1759, by a second acquisition of about 122 acres made in the name of Joseph’s wife Lydia.

 

Although the boundaries of these two pieces of land are not entirely clear, it is believed that they adjoined each other to make a total tract of 252 acres, about one-fifth of which was in the old town of New Milford and the balance north of it in Marble Dale. When Joseph and Lydia Wheaton divided the 252 acres among three of their sons, Benjamin, Sylvester and Orange, the boundaries of this total tract become better defined. Apparently, the bulk of the land lay in the fertile valley of the east branch of Aspetuck River and was encompassed in a 1½ mile long narrow strip of land east of this river, with what is now Wheaton Road running through it.

 

A close study of land transfers and leases indicates that ultimately a total of three adjacent marble quarries were discovered and commercially developed on one of the two pieces of land given to Orange Wheaton. These three quarries were the largest, most worked and best known in Marble Dale. Marble quarries are not mentioned in connection with land owned by Sylvester Wheaton, although his son, Sylvester Sherman, played a small part in a quarry, but not until 1833. See map on page 147.

 

At the Northville Cemetery, a mile or so from the Wheaton marble quarries, are even now fine examples of hand-cut gravestones placed there during the Revolution. They came from these quarries.

 

An interesting sidelight on Orange Wheaton is seen in the bequest of three-tenths of an acre of his land to the Episcopal Society of New Preston ‘for the exclusive purpose of erecting on said land an Episcopal Church.’ The deed was dated September 24, 1821. St. Andrew’s church was built on it in 1822 and consecrated the following year.

The land transferred by Orange Wheaton was ‘the corner of my meadow nearly opposite the stone saw mill belonging to Abijah Tomlinson.’ Orange Wheaton must have taken a page from the book of Captain Nicholas Masters who gave 1.2 acres of land on December 6, 1742, for building the Washington First Congregational Church.

 

In addition to Joseph and Orange Wheaton, the other principal Wheatons involved in the Marble Dale marble quarry business were Orange’s two sons, Daniel and Marvin,

and William D. Wheaton, Marvin’s son. Other men entered the marble quarry business with the Wheatons from time to time, but often as lessees, but in a few cases as part owners. Surprisingly, the first mention of a marble quarry in Wheaton family land transfers or leases is a lease of December 1, 1824, from Daniel Wheaton to Christopher Allyn and Ely Platt. In this lease:

said Allyn and Platt are to use, occupy and enjoy a

certain marble quarry on my land north of my house…

and now worked by them for the term of 25 years from

the date hereof with the privilege of extending the

diggings on my land so far as they can find marble,

provided they continue in the same quarry or pit… and

I furthermore grant them the right to commence a new

quarry in any part of my farm.

 

This lease also indicated that unless Daniel Wheaton shared equally in both the expenses and profits of any new quarry, he was ‘to receive only the common tonnage which may be paid by other diggers.’ Two points are of interest here. The first is that there were, in frequent cases, several men leasing and working in the same marble quarry at the same time. This gave the impression that there were more marble quarries in Marble Dale than was actually the case. The other point is that the ‘common tonnage’ was ‘two dollars for every hundred feet of stone that shall be dug and raised from said quarry when sawed and computed at board measure.’ Board measure corresponded to that used in the lumber business where a piece of wood twelve inches square and one inch thick constituted one board foot – the unit by which total board feet was computed in both the lumber and sawed marble business.

 

The Wheaton marble quarry lease ran for a specific term of up to twenty-five years. There were other leases in the marble business, however, whose terms of existence were practically infinity, or ‘as long as trees grow and waters flow,’ as expressed in one lease. Those were the days before ‘ecology’ became a common household word.”

(pp. 152-155)

 

Notes: Orange and Sylvester Wheaton also owned a forge (Nov.

5, 1788) on the North Shepaug River in Woodville, CT (ibid, p.

253).

Notes for Ebenezer NEWELL:

Information from Kelly WHEATON 19/2/2013

“Ebenezer NEWELL, Ebenezer’s son, was approximately 12 years old when the family moved to Strawberry Hill. On April 24, 1760, he married Elizabeth WHEATON, daughter of Caleb WHEATON of Rehoboth and Needham. The WHEATON family came from Wales to Rehoboth. He later married Abigail ALLEN (sister of his step-mother, Elizabeth ALLEN), and married last Rachel AMES (could be EAMES). The family moved around but finally settled near the center of Dover. Ebenezer kept a tavern for a while. He was very active in town government, serving as a selectman for many years. He was a deacon in the First Parish Church and the District clerk. Ebenezer, his mother, Elizabeth Bullard NEWELL, his first wife, Elizabeth Wheaton NEWELL, and probably others of his immediate family are buried at Highland Cemetery in Dover, Massachusetts.

 

After the early death of his mother, Asa (Ebenezer’s son), spent much of his childhood with his grandfather, Caleb Wheaton. He also helped with the family tavern. He married Miriam White (Wight?) in 1805 in Natick. They moved to Amherst shortly after the wedding in December, and their first child was born in Amherst the following August. Asa named him for his grandfather, Caleb Wheaton. Their second child, Charles William, arrived four years later in 1810.

Notes for Mary WHEATON:

Information from Mary Marshall BATES 24/4/2002

“This researcher has no proof that Mary, wife of Samuel Scott was a Wheaton. Because one of her sons was Wheaton, it does seem logical that she was one of Caleb’s 16 children.

 

This family is PURE CONJECTURE.

 

Samuel was a St. Augustine Loyalist whose wife’s name was Mary. When they arrived in the settlement, there were three children. According to Jost’s Sketches and Essays, there is record only of Wheaton and his wife Mary who had two children; Samuel, born in 1842 (Married Emmeline Jane Carr) and Joseph, born 5 September 1844.

 

Samuel was granted 300 acres in Manchester Township. In the years 1791 and 1804 Samuel, Farmer of the Gut of Canso was assesed 50lbs.

 

At the time of the 1817 census taking, Samuel’s household included 1 man over 50, 1 male 16-49, 1 boy and 2 girls; 1 American and 4 Acadians.

 

No further record.”

Notes for Caleb Jr WHEATON:

Addresses

1790       Boston, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA

 

Information from Mary BATES 24/4/2002

“I found his name on a list of those individuals who were, in 1783, banished from Sandwich, Masssachusetts. We call them Tories, Canadians call them Loyalists”

 

 

Up to this date, the first appearance this researcher finds of Caleb is his being identified as a Tory/Loyalist and banished from the town of Sandwich, MA. Of course, this was associated with the American Revolutionary War. After being a prisoner for 19 months, he served as a Lieutentant in Lieutenat-Colonel Timothy Hierlihy’s Loyalist regiment that had been formed in March, 1777. This assignment was made by William Howe in Philadelphia.

 

A list of Nova Scotia Volunteers includes Lieutenant Caleb Wheaton, born in America, Gentleman of Boston,   served eight years in the Provincial Corp. Also, included in the Seconded Officers-British American Forces is Lieutenant Caleb Wheaton, Guides and Pioneers, born in America, previously a farmer from Boston, served seven years in Provincial Corps, seconded 25 January 1778.

 

In 1784, Caleb was granted 650 acres in the Bay of St. Lewis, Sydney/Guysborough, County, NS. This was part of a 2,500 acres that were granted to both Caleb and his brother John.

 

In a document dated 30 March 1786 in Halifax, NS Caleb petitioned John Parr, Esq. for some land and islands in Antigonish that had trees suitable for shipbuilding and for seven acres on a point of land suitable for a shipbuilding yard.

 

In 1792, he was put on half pay. That year, he must have returned to Boston for his marriage to Sally Bryant which was officiated by Rev. Samuel Parker at Trinity Anglican Church .

 

In 1804, he was assessed at Manchester/Guysborough. On 15 August 1804, Caleb Wheaton of the Gut of Canso sold to Phebe Bryant, widow of the Town of Boston, State of Massachusetts for 70pounds Halifax currency a lot of land formerly owned by Thomas North bought of John Wheaton containing 50 acres on which there is a house and barn. Witness: Robert Lowry, J. Wheaton. Signed: Caleb Wheaton, Sarah Wheaton. Book C, page 346, registered 2 October 1804.

 

A document dated 5 July 1813, signed by John Butterworth and John Higgins reports a Lt. Caleb Wheaton uttering derogatory statements against Sr. George Prevost. Caleb and other two were shipmates on a ship coming from Quebec and passing between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island in 1812.

 

At the time of the 1817 census taking, Caleb “Whitten”‘s household included 1 man over 50, 1 man between 16 and 49, 1 boy, 1 woman and 1 girl; 2 were Americans, 3 were Acadians.

 

NOTE: Certain of original documents are in the possession of a Caleb Wheaton descendant.”

Information from Daniel WHEATON 6/3/2002

Caleb had a son John WHEATON who served as a Lieut, on the Royal NS Volunteers in 1784.

 

Information from Mary Marshall BATES 24/4/2002

“A listing of the Nova Scotia Volunteers includes Lieutenant John Wheaton, born in America, a Gentleman, brother to the Lieutenant afore-mentioned (Caleb), served seven years in the Provincial Corps.

 

“During the first years of the establishment of Antigonish, the grog-shop sprouted into being as an insttution in the land. A soldier of the name of Wheaton acheived the single distinction of inaugurating the first grog shop in the county. This rum-shanty attained deplorable notoriety in the place. Two men, MaGrath and O’Brien, were drinking in the house one night. A quarrel arose between them, angry words begat blows, when MaGrath in his frenzy seized a gun and shot O’Brien dead. On the following day, MaGrath was arrested and sent to Halifax in charge of Nathan Pushee. When the trial come on, no one appeared against him and he was allowed to go free. The

scene of the tragedy became known as Murder Point. This may have been Lt. John Wheaton, a native of Sandwich, MA who did not draw any farmland, merely taking town lots as if he planned on going into business.”

NOTE: This researcher questions whether the above was John or his brother Caleb. Caleb, not John was a resident of Sandwich, MA. Also, Caleb does not appear in the Poll Tax assesments.

 

John and his brother Caleb were given a combined 2,500 land grant.

 

In 1793, Lt. J. Wheaton of Antigonish, Sydney county, NS was taxed 6 lb. 3.75 and was noted as having livestock.

 

In 1804, John Wheaton and John Gwinn petition to build a grist-mill and a saw-mill at the Head of Ship Harbor on the Gut of Canso. They asked for land to promote the undertaking.

 

In 1810, Petitioner, John Wheaton asked for a lot formerly laid off for Captain Barways who left the place without any improvements. Petitioner wished to build a mill there. Under pretense of settling some families from Gurnsey and building a saw-mill, Mr. Barvis (?) obtained a warrant for 2000 acres in 1809. The land was surveyed but neither Mr. Barvis nor his agent had appeared to take out a title. Repot of Crawley to Crowdy: 250 acres, lot 14, at    the entrance of Joe’s Cove, Gut of canso. Plan.

 

At the time of the 1811 census taking on Cape Breton, John Wheaton, Esq., Farmer was living in Plaster of Paris Cove. His household included 1 male between 14 and 60, 2 males under 14, 1 famale under 14, 3 unmarried males and females, 4 cattle and 1 horse.

 

At the time of the 1818 census taking, John, Farmer, married, age 60, born NS (parents born in England) had been living on the Island for 8 years. There were no children listed.

Information from Commemorative Biographical Record from Charles WALTHER 27/212/2004

He was a carpenter by trade and assisted in the erection of the first Congregational church built in Providence. R.I., the same having been since known as the Benefit Street Church. As indicitive of his intrepid daring and athletic strength it is related, and well authenticated, that after the completion of the spire, which was 180 feet in height, he climbed to the topmost point and stood upon the ball which crowned the spure. He later came to Pomfret and purchased what has since been known as the WHEATON homestead.

 

The information then goes on to state the he married Miss SLADE and they had 6 children.

I have this James married to Sarah CHILD with 8 children

 

I have James, son of Levi, married to Sarah SLADE with 1 child. Help needed to sort this out!

Notes for Andrew Jnr WHEATON:

Migrated to New York State in 1800 (Richard THOMAS 1/8/2003)

 

Information from Kelly WHEATON 26/11/2004

1790       New Ashford, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, USA

 

Information from Richard THOMAS 27/12/2004

Sometime between 1790 and early 1800 Andrew moved his family to Cayuga County New York and that is where they stayed and is where my mother was born. The move to New Ashford was probably during or after the revolutionary war, as many families moved away from the east coast into Connecicut and western Massachusetts for safety.

 

Cayuga County was purchased from the Indians by the state of New York. The state then offered free land in Cayuga county to all the soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary war and the acreage depended on the rank you held while serving. Now Andrew is not listed by the State as receiving any of this land even though he fought in the war. After his death his wife applied for his war pension and was turned down, I guess she could not prove that he served in the state of Connecticut.

 

My feeling is that he purchased acreage from a soldier who received free land who did not want to clear the land or farm which was a common practice. I have traveled the area and located the farms held by the early WHEATONs, at least the ones that have not been subdivided into home lots. The area of the county is still mostly farm land and I call them dirt farms as there are few fences and very little cattle or dairy farms. Another interest is the lack of forest land in the county. When Andrew and his family arrived in the county I am sure that their land as most in the area were covered with a dense forest. Clearing the land must have been a big task as well as building roads because the only way around were Indian trails.

Notes for Laban WHEATON:

Information from Richard THOMAS 6/8/2003

Wheaton College in Norton Massachusetts was established by the Hon. Laban WHEATON. Laban WHEATON. 5, (Dr. George 4, Ephraim 3, Rev. Ephraim 2, Robert 1)

 

The Twentieth Century Biographical Dictionary of Notable Americans: Volume X page 44.

 

Laban WHEATON, educationist, was born in Norton, Massachusetts, March 13, 1754; son of Dr. George WHEATON.. He attended Wrentham academy; was graduated from Harvard, A.B., 1774. Studied theology with Abiel LEONARD of Woodstock, Connecticut. And was appointed chaplain in the Co in 1775. His health prevented his accepting a call to Farmingham, Massachusetts. for the revolutionary war. He engaged in an unfortunate mercantile in 1785 then began the study of law, practicing his profession first in Milton, and after 1788 in Norton. He was a representative legislature seven years and in the 11th through the 14th congresses of the United States from 1809 to 1817. He was appointed chief-justice of the court of commons and of the court of sessions in 1819, and retired from public life in 1827. Mr. WHEATON. was married in 1794 ro Fanny Morey of Norton. They had four children, two of whom lived to a mature age. One of these his only daughter died in 1834 and in her memory of her he established the Female seminary in Norton, 1835. He died in Norton, Mass. in 1846.

 

The female seminary in Norton is now Wheaton College. Institutions like people are shaped by the experiences, people and events that fill their past. The forces that sparked the founding of Wheaton College began more than 168 years ago with a fathers wish to memorialize his recently-deceased and much loved daughter. The college opened in 1835 with three teachers and fifty pupils. From its founding, Wheaton College was a pioneering institution, offering young women the means to pursue serious study at a time when women’s educational options were few.

Notes for Levi WHEATON:

Information from David J WHEATON 12th September 2004 and David J WHEATON 25/11/2004

“There is much circumstanital evidence that Levi and Betsey are the parents of Daniel and Samuel; however, we have not yet found conclusive evidence of this relationship.

 

In addition, so far, there are no birth or christening records for Levi. That he is the son of Daniel and Unity is based on strong circumstantial evidence. Levi came to Ludlow, Vermont, and settled among the sons of Daniel and Unity WHEATON. He was found with members of Daniel’s fmaily in Middlesex County Court Records, and his wife is the sister of Ruth BOWKER, who married Daniel, the son of Daniel and Unity WHEATON.

 

Research has suggested that Levi WHEATON and his wife Betsy BOWKER are the parents of Samuel WHEATON (b.ca 1797) and Daniel WHEATON (b ca.1805) based on four criteria: (28 October 2003 report):

  1. Levi WHEATON had males in his household with the approximate ages of Samuel and Daniel WHEATON in the 1810 census of Ludlow, Vermont
  2. Naming pattern. Levi is believed to be the son of Daniel WHEATON of Hopkinton, Massachusetts. His wife Betsy is the daughter of Samuel BOWKER.
  3. Daniel stated in the 1880 census that both parents were born in Massachusetts. Levi WHEATON and Betsey BOWKER were both born in Massachusetts.
  4. Multiple other candidates have been disqualified.

 

That Levi is the son of Daniel and Unity (BULLEN) WHEATON is suggested by these facts: (28 October 2003 report)

  1. Levi lived in Hopkinton where the family of Daniel and Unity resided.
  2. Levi WHEATON married Betsey BOWKER. Daniel, son of Daniel and Unity, married Ruth BOWKER, sister of Betsey BOWKER.
  3. Levi WHEATON settled in Ludlow, Vermont, with Unity WHEATON and her proven sons, Amos and Daniel.
  4. Levi WHEATON and Daniel WHEATON (son of Daniel and Unity) both bought land in Ludlow from Joseph MANNING in 1802.
  5. Levi was born about 1771 based on an estimated age of 25 when he married in 1796. The proven children of Daniel and Unity WHEATON were born in Holliston and Medway, Massachusetts, in 1759, 1761, 1763 and 1766. It is conceivable that they had other children after 1766.

 

Although deeds do not show that Levi’s sons had an interest in the land of their grandfather, Daniel WHEATON, they do offer a few insights. The evidence is now very strong that Levi WHEATON is the son of Daniel. He had several transactions with Daniel WHEATON Jr., son of Daniel and Unity, and Levi was a creditor of the estate of Daniel WHEATON Jr. It is also most interesting that Levi owned land bordered by the lands of Daniel WHEATON Jr and Samuel BOWKER. The naming of the ancestors of Daniel and Samuel WHEATON now appears more significant than ever. Levi not only had a father named Daniel but also a brother. Betsey had a father and brother named Samuel. Levi and Betsey were neighbours to both families. It was natural to name sons after Samuel BOWKER and Daniel WHEATON. it was also learned that Levi WHEATON was a cooper, that is one who makes barrels (28 October 2003 report).

 

Research previous to the 28 October 2003, report found that brothers Samuel and Daniel WHEATON were living in Bangor, New York in 1830 and Malone in 1840. Samuel was living in Constable, New York, when he enlisted in the army in 1814. These are rural towns along the Quebec border. Although most Frankin County records were examined previously, several classes of records were reexamined for Levi and his brothers, Daniel and Amos, all of whom disappeared from Ludlow between 1810 and 1817 without a trace. The 1830 census shows there was a 50-60 year old male in Daniel’s household in Bangor. This man was born between 1770 and 1780, making him the right age to have been Levi WHEATON.

Joseph’s birth can be approximated from three sources. First from the 1830

Genesee County NY census where he is listed as 60-70 years old. This implies

that he was born in the decade between 1860 and 1770. He is also listed as

60-70 years old in the 1840 Ashtabula County OH census, not in agreement with

the 1840 census. His gravestone gives his death date as 5 Apr 1844 and his age

as 78 years. Computing his birth year by subtracting 78 from 1844 leads to

  1. Assuming that two of the three records that agree are correct, his birth

can be determined as occurring in 1766. Unfortunately, where he was born or who

his parents were has not yet been found.

 

Joseph apparently came to Fairfield VT with his future father-in-law Joseph

Wheeler in 1787. He is first mentioned as “J Wheaton’s farm” in the Fairfield

Town Records in a recording of a 22 Sep 1792 highway survey. He is later

mentioned in the town meeting minutes as a town official: 15 Mar 1792, chosen

Hayward; 13 Mar 1804, chosen one of sixteen Surveyors of Highways; 1 Mar 1813,

chosen one of fifteen Path Martins. Note that the town records are not in

chronological order. Joseph is not mentioned in the town records after the 1813

entry.

 

Joseph was enumerated in the 1791 Vermont Census in Fairfield, Chittenden County

and in the 1800 Census in Fairfield, Franklin County (Franklin was made from

Chittenden in 1796). The children’s age groupings do not quite match with the

birth dates given in the town records: two males and one female less than 10

years and one male 10-16 yrs.

 

The Fairfield Town Records on page 1A:63 record the births of Joseph’s five

children. The recording appears to have been made well after their births as

they are recorded on five consecutive lines following a recording of the 11 May

1812 Town Meeting minutes and are followed by recording of an announcement for

another Town Meeting dated 23 Sep 1811. It may have become fashionable about

this time to record children’s births in the town records as those of several

other families also appear on nearby pages.

 

The town records imply the construction of a school house between the meetings

of 1802 and 1803. Since the meetings were held in March each year, it is

probable that it was built in the summer of 1802 (the Town House was not built

until six years later, between the 1808 and 1809 town meetings). Joseph’s

children must have attended school there.

 

In 1810 the family was again enumerated by the census in Fairfield.

 

Sometime between 1 Mar 1813 when he was selected as a Path Martin in Fairfield

and 26 Feb 1814 (based on migration information it is probable that they moved

by sleigh during the winter), Joseph and Sarah moved to Genesee County, New York

where he purchased land in Batavia Township (T12, R2, Sec 4, Lot 5, 160 acres)

for $363.82. Possibly he was motivated by the War of 1812 which was unpopular in

Vermont and a hardship as the Vermonters were caught between the British of

Canada to the north and the War Hawks to the south (see Vermont History).

 

Four years later, Sarah died (1818). It is probable that Joseph remarried quite

soon after her death as the 1830 Census enumerated seven additional children (two boys

ages 10-15, one make 15-20, two girls ages 5-10, and one girl age 10-15, and one female aged 15-20 and an 8th child age 20-30 is almost certainly Harlow. It is probable that the four oldest children are from the 2nd wife’s 1st marriage and the youngest three are hers and Joseph’s.

 

The family probably lived on that Batavia Township farm until it was sold on 16

Jul 1825 for $2,500, a handsome increase in eleven years. A few months before

selling this land Joseph bought another farm in an adjacent township on 26 Dec

1824 (T12, R1, Sec 10, Lot 12, 95 acres) for $587.31. On 19 Jan 1833, Joseph

sold this farm for $900.

 

Some time after Jan 1833 and before Jan 1839 Joseph moved to Ashtabula County,

Ohio. On 2 Jan 1839 he purchased 61.55 acres of land in Lot 3, Section 5 of

Williamsfield Township, Ashtabula County, Ohio. Lot 3 is the S 1/3 of W 1/2 of

Sec 5 and contained approximately 100 acres. It is likely the land Joseph

purchased was the east end of the lot as the 1856 plat shows a dwelling labeled

“J French” on that end on the west side of the north-south road that bisected

the section (the land was sold in 1852 to Homer French). This road was the only

one in the section at that time.

 

On 16 Jul 1840 Joseph sold the 61.55 acre parcel to his son Joseph W Wheaton.

 

In 1840, Joseph was enumerated by the census in the household of his son Joseph

Wheeler Wheaton, in Williamsfield Township, Ashtabula County, Ohio.

 

There was no mention of a wife in the July 1840 land sale nor was a female of

the expected age enumerated by the 1840 Census. Therefore it must be assumed

that Sally died before 1840.

 

Joseph died 5 Apr 1844 at age 78 and was buried in the West Williamsfield

Township Cemetery. This can be used to compute his birth as 1844 – 78 = 1766

 

NOTE: The two Williamsfield Township Cemetery inscription records (DAR and

Ashtabula County Genealogical Society) give his death as 5 Apr 1844 and 5 Apr

1811(?). Since the recorders of the second have a doubt about the year and 11

could be easily mistaken for 44, the DAR record was used as it is more

consistent with other facts. The grave was visited and photographed by Dean

Wheaton 14 May 1998, although the stone is highly weathered the inscription

recorded by the DAR is correct except that no birth date is given on the stone.

Where the DAR record obtained the birth year is unknown but is believed

incorrect. The DAR record (and gravestone) gives his age as 78 which can be

used to compute his birth as 1844 – 78 = 1766.

Information from Philip BEDIENT 29/6/2006

Albany County, NY Deed 49-49, Jan, 2, 1828

William WHEATON of Westerlo to Cyrus WHEATON his son

– for $2000 sell land in Westerlo, Manor of Rensselaerwyck

begin at NE corner of Lot #120; thence by Lot #120 N5W 42 chains 30 links; N85E 44 ch. 32 l.; S5E 42 ch. 30 l.; S85W 44 ch. 19 l.

-known as Lot No. 333 in original lease from Stephen Van RENSSELAER, Esq. to William WHEATON, containing 187 1/2 a.

-subject to annual rents made & reserved by said Stephen Van RENSSELAER, Esq.

Witnesses: L. F. HITCHCOCK and Wm. BEARDSLEY on Jan 3, 1828. Rec. Mar. 5, 1835.

[ In deed 50-120 Mar. 9, 1835 when Cyrus WHEATON & Lucretia his wife sold half of this land to Daniel LOCKWOOD, the date of May 23, 1788 was given as the date of the original lease from Stephen Van RENSSELAER to William WHEATON.]

 

Which suggests the name of the wife of Cyrus was Lucretia…was she just known as Julia? However, with further investigation it would appear that there were probably two Cyrus WHEATONs. As much fuller details were received from Philip BEDIENT (2 wives and 13 children plus many details of sources) we have used the information from Philip for this Cyrus.

Marriage Notes for Levi WHEATON and Amy BALLARD:

Information previously received from Bonnie WHEATON showed Levi WHEATON married to Amy BALLARD 23 April 1809. Information now obtained shows Levi WHEATON married to Mary LUTHER 18 December 1796 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts, daughter of James LUTHER and Ruth WHALEN. She was born 12 April 1779 in Swansea, Bristol, Massachusetts.

 

It is possible that Mary LUTHER died and then Levi married Amy BALLARD as no information about children for Levi and Mary was obtained, whilst details of a family for Levi and Amy has been received.

 

These details will need investigation

 

Information has now been found in the Pomfret Vital Records that Levi married Emily BALLARD.

Also that Levi born 1722 married Mary/Marcy LUTHER. Confusion probably arose as Mary/Marcy was born 1758 so much younger than her husband.

Help!

Notes for Read BURITT:

Information from B COLLINS 25/5/2011

Reed BURRITT was the minister of the South Westerlo Baptist Church until 1835, when he “…split with the congregation…to find a new congregation in Burdett, Tompkins, New York.” (History of the County of Albany)   1820 Green Co Census, 1840-50 Hector, Tompkins NY.

 

“In the late 1700s and early 1800s, most Baptist churches in America adopted various doctrines and practices which differed significantly from Baptist standards. During these same times, there were many Baptist churches which held to traditional views. The contention between these groups became so sharp that new fractures began to develop in Baptist fellowship as of the late 1820s. Division was accelerated in 1832 when a group of the conservative Baptists met at Black Rock, Maryland to compose a general address in which they announced and explained their resolve to withdraw fellowship from the liberal doctrines and practices. The resulting document, generally known as the Black Rock Address, had widespread influence, and lead churches across the country to take similar action. The conservative churches deriving from this unfortunate but necessary division later became known as Primitive Baptists.”

 

“Primitive Baptists view scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God and as the sole rule of faith and practice for the church. It is also believed that the scriptures have been divinely preserved over the ages, and that the 1611 King James version is the superior English translation of the scriptures.”

 

“…Black Rock brethren refer to themselves as Particular Baptists in 1832, but propose the term Old School Baptist in reference to themselves.

In the 1834 address, the appelation Old School Baptist is used uniformly.

There is no mention of Particular Baptists in the second address.

Eventually, Primitive Baptist became the more common appelation, though Old School is sometimes used even today.” (“Primitive Baptist Web Station”

<http://www.pb.org/&gt; 27 Jan 2005)

Information from Kelly WHEATON 17/2/2013

It is believed that Thomas was named after Thomas LADD. Thomas LADD was born 11 December 1767 in Weymouth, Massachusetts, son of William LADD. William LADD was born in Hanover, Massachusetts and died in Duanesburgh. Schenectady Co, New York. A Thomas LADD marries a Margaret CARROW 20 Sep 1758 in New York (Long Island?).

 

Thomas Ladd WHEATON died after 1880 but no burial has been found. His wife is Elizabeth SMITH daughter of Thomas SMITH and Ruth (BALLOU) SMITH and she is buried in the Columbus Center Cemetery in Chenango Co., New York. The marker states “Eliza SMITH wife of Thomas WHEATON.” On the same marker are Thomas SMITH who died 12/21/1846 at 74 years and his wife Ruth BALLOU 86 died 3/24/1874. Having visited the cemetery it does not appear that Thomas was buried there.

 

In a article that appeared in a local paper titled “Early History of the Town of Pittsfield Aden J. ANGELL writing about the building of a new road between New Berlin and Morris to the east writes:

“Ladd WEATON, then living west of the village (Morris) built a log hote, 40 ft square on the hill just above where Mr. SELLARS now

lives. He filled decanters and commenced business but when the hotel business slumped, Ladd closed up.”

From findagrave web site

WHEATON, CYRUS MARTIN son of Jonathan and Sarepta (MARTIN) WHEATON, was born in Rehoboth, Nov. 4, 1794. He traced his ancestry on both sides to the early settlement of the town. Robert WHEATON, the first of the name in this country, came from England to Salem in 1636. Moved to Rehoboth in 1643-46; married Alice BOWEN. He was born in Wales in 1605, died 1695 or ’96, aged ninety. He suffered the horrors of King Philip’s War, as he was Philip’s nearest neighbor. On his mother’s side Cyrus was a lineal descendant of John MARTIN of Swansea, who came to this country in 1663 with Rev. John Miles, pastor of the ?rst Baptist Church in Swansea. The best traits of both families were combined in the subject of our sketch, and there was in him a happy balance of faculties as rare as it is desirable. He was prominent in the affairs of his native town and for half a century was closely identified with its history. He was interested in military affairs and was promoted in early life to the rank of colonel in the old First Regiment of the Massachusetts Militia. He was for many years one of Rehoboth’s selectmen, and for thirty years its town clerk, and also justice of the peace. In I874, on his eightieth birthday, he was honored by being elected to the State Legislature.

 

He was an active member of the Congregational Church and Society, and served on the building committee which erected the present house of worship, dedicated Sunday, Nov. 3, 1839, the marriage of his eldest daughter constituting a part of the services of that day. He was always in his place at church on the Sabbath. As the time of his departure drew near, he said, “Pray for me that the Lord’s will may done and that I may he reconciled to his will.”

 

Mr. WHEATON married, for his ?rst wife, Nancy CARPENTER, daughter of Peter and Nancy CARPENTER, of Rehoboth, Oct. 26, 1817. She died Oct. 15. 1855. They had six children: Nancy Carpenter, Sarepta Martin, Mary Carpenter, Cyrus Martin, Elizabeth Moulton, and Amanda Minerva. He married for his second wife, May 13, 1856, Mrs. Rosella (CARPENTER) PERRY, sister of his former wife. Mr. WHEATON lived to share the affection of twenty grandchildren and thirty-six great-grandchildren.

He married Mary UNKNOWN wife of Samuel WHEATON. She was born May 1798 in Massachusetts, USA2919, and died July 28, 1876 in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, USA2919.

 

Notes for Samuel WHEATON:

Addresses

Possible addresses

1850       Warren, Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA

Living next door were other WHEATONs whose relationships are difficult to work out.

Joseph F (30), Ruth A (28), Sally (56), Emily L (24), Henry W (19) and Melissa A (16)

We had assumed that Sally was the mother of Joseph (married to Ruth), Emily, Henry

and Melissa. Was there any relationship betweem Joseph F and this Samuel?

 

Subsequent investigations

In 1880 a Joseph WHEATON born 1857 was living with Samuel and Mary. He could not

be their son. In 1870 J H and Ruth had a son Joseph born 1857.

As this Joseph born 1857 appears to be with Samuel and Mary in 1880 it is more than

likely there is a relationship which could be that of grandson. This would make J H/

Joseph F the son of Samuel and Mary. He has now been entered as such until someone

advised me differently. This is not ideal as years of birth of the 1850 Samuel family

are the same as those of the Joseph F family. Also there is a Melissa in both families

age 22 in one and 16 in the other. We obviously need help here.

 

There is, however, the problem of Sally WHEATON (56). For the time being she has not

been entered as I cannot work out a possible relationship

 

Even later findings,

On the findagrave web site a birth and death for a Joseph, son and Samuel and Mary

was found., born 22 June 1839 and died 2 November 1844. This suggests that Joseph

F WHEATON was NOT the son of Samuel and Mary. Therefore the information in my

file has been returned to two separate families, one with Samuel and Mary at the head

and the other with Sally as the mother.

Notes for Noah SMITH:

Information from Findagrave web site

“Another act of kindness by Lincoln has a Calais, Maine, connection. Noah SMITH Jr. who lived in that town was the paternal grandfather of Kate Douglas WIGGIN, the author of “Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch”, “The Bird’ Christmas Carol” and other books.

Apparently he was a town official in Calais and the letter he received from Lincoln granting a pardon to a young boy who had been convicted of treason was one of the last official acts performed by the soon to be martyred President.” (Lincoln Connections by Edith Labbie, Lewiston Sun Journal, Feb. 13, 1981)

 

To Hannibal Hamlin [1]

Springfield, Illinois, September 4, 1860.

My dear Sir: I am annoyed some by a letter from a friend in Chicago, in which the following passage occurs: “Hamlin has written Colfax [2] that two members of Congress will, he fears, be lost in Maine—the first and sixth districts; and that Washburne’s [3] majority for governor will not exceed six thousand.”

I had heard something like this six weeks ago, but had been assured since that it was not so. Your secretary of state,—Mr. SMITH, [4] I think,—whom you introduced to me by letter, gave this assurance; more recently, Mr. FESSENDEN, [5] our candidate for Congress in one of those districts, wrote a relative here that his election was sure by at least five thousand, and that Washburne’s majority would be from 14,000 to 17,000; and still later, Mr. FOGG, of New Hampshire, now at New York serving on a national committee, wrote me that we were having a desperate fight in Maine, which would end in a splendid victory for us.

Such a result as you seem to have predicted in Maine, in your letter to Colfax, would, I fear, put us on the down-hill track, lose us the State elections in Pennsylvania and Indiana, and probably ruin us on the main turn in November.

You must not allow it. Yours very truly, A. LINCOLN.

[4] Noah SMITH of Calais, Maine.

 

Hamlin’s letter introducing him is not in the Lincoln Papers.

For a number of years he was an active member of the Maine Legislature which opened the door for him to become speaker of the Maine House of Representatives in 1854. In 1858, Smith became the Secretary of State. When a dear friend, the Honorable Hannibal HAMLIN was elected as vice-president he secured SMITH in the seat of secretary of the United States Senate in Washington. Later, SMITH would become the legislative clerk of the Senate.” (Walter B. GIBSON and the Shadow)

Dwight H. Bruce (ed.), Onondaga’s Centennial. Boston History Co., 1896, Vol. I, pp. 611-626; 630-631

Augustus Wheaton, son of Joseph, purchased land in Pompey in 1807 and settled thereon with his family in 1810. Three sisters, Lydia, Sylvia and Loraine, had preceded him. He purchased a farm of 410 acres on which he lived to about 1823, when he sold out and removed to Syracuse. Five years later he returned to Pompey, where he lived to about 1833, when he went back to the place of his birth and died about the year 1852. He was a prominent and public spirited citizen. His eldest son, Orlin J., was long an active citizen of the town, engaged in agricultural pursuits and droving. Another son was Horace Wheaton who was for some years a merchant at Pompey Hill until about 1846, when he removed to Syracuse, where he was well-known among the older citizens of the city. Charles A. Wheaton, another son of Augustus, also removed to Syracuse, where he was a successful dry goods merchant, and later was in the hardware trade. He ultimately removed to Minnesota.

200. Sylvester Sherman6 WHEATON (Sylvester5, Joseph4, Joseph3, John2, Robert1)3127 was born September 8, 1794 in New York, USA3127,3128, and died April 12, 1853 in New Milford, Connecticut, USA Age about 583129,3130. He married Lucinda TRACY3131 March 5, 1827 in Washington, Connecticut, USA as Sherman S3131. She was born Abt. 1807 in New York, USA (1850) or Connecticut, USA (1860)3132, and died January 3, 1867 in New Milford, Connecticut, USA Age about 593133.

 

Notes for Sylvester Sherman WHEATON:

April 2012

I have tried to sort this problem out in the past without success, I have now spent another two days trying and I am now more confused than ever.

 

On the Circular Chart sent by Bonnie WHEATON in 12/2004

the children for Eseck WHEATON and Eunice SKEELS were shown as:

Henry S,

Adelia S,

Flora A and

Ellen

 

and for his brother Sylvester WHEATON and his wife Mercy SPERRY were shown as:

2 infant sons who died young,

Minerva,

Nathaniel S,

Silvester Sherman and

Jarred Sperry.

 

The drawn lines for the descendants of Harry S (son of Esek) and Sylvester Sherman (son of Sylvester) both go to the same group of children: Julia M, Caroline A, George H, Ellen A, Elvira, Minerva and Oscar Nathaniel.

 

Obviously the same children cannot belong to both Henry S and Sylvester Sherman and I have been trying to work out which child belongs to which family ever since. Also, over the years I have received information from other WHEATONs who have made amendments and additions to the information first sent to me. For example, the birth dates of the two girls, Flora and Ellen shown as daughters of Esek above meant that Eunice was in her seventies when she had the last one and it now appears they were her granddaughters and the daughters of Myron B WHEATON, who in turn was found to be a son of Eseck. Although such information has clarified some difficulties it has also caused others.

 

Besides Myron B other children have also been found for Esek and Eunice:

Polly, Sally, Alma, Cyrus, Molly or Holly, Adelia S, Harvey, Joseph, Anna Marilla and the aforementioned Myron B. (sister Anna is living with Myron in 1860 and 1870)

 

The children form Sylvester Sherman appear to be Elvira/Alvina, Juliette, Susan M (was this another Minerva?) and Oscar Nathaniel. Three of these were names on Bonnie’s chart shown as descendants of Henry S so it would appear that the problem has been sorted for those children. I have accessed the 1850 census for Sylvester on ancestry. It would appear that he called himself Sherman (just to make matters more complicates!), but has a wife called Lucina. The children living with him are Alvina (22), Juliette (19), Susan M (15) and Oscar N (11). Also living with them was Susan WHEATON (86) born New York, USA who is possibly Susan TRACY, wife of Orange WHEATON. Information on later census returns for the children include individuals, such as their Aunt Minerva, who are siblings of Sylvester Sherman which goes some way to confirm that this Sherman is indeed Sylvester Sherman.

 

Which really leaves the problem of Henry S/Henry Sherman. To complicate matters further I was also sent information that as well as a Henry S being son of Eseck there was also a Henry Sherman WHEATON who was a son of Sylvester and Lucinda TRACEY, and a son of Myron WHEATON, Myron’s family also including Adelia S, Julia M, Flora A, Ellen C and Esther A.

 

On the the various census returns and death details Henry is shown as being born about 1824/1826 and on the 1860 census his children are listed as Caroline (9), George H (6) and Ellen (1). This would seem to clarify the original problem, other than the Julia M shown on the Circular chart these other three children complete the list of descendants assigned to both Eseck and Sylvester.

 

All (All!?) that is left is to work out to which family Henry S/Henry Sherman WHEATON belongs.

Was he Eseck’s son? The dates for Henry S, his wife and children do not fit with this family

Was he Sylvester’s son? Kelly WHEATON GEDCON 13/5/2011 includes him in this family with a birth date of 1827. Sylvester Sherman

and Lucinda TRACEY married in 1827. However, as stated above, census and death details suggest Henry was born in 1824. This

does not mean he is not their son as he could obviously have been born before his parents married.

Was he Myron’s son? They do not appear on a census together so no help there. At present I have entered Henry Sherman as the son of Myron, the grandson of Eseck. The only reason being that two of Myron’s other children, Flora and Ellen, were entered on Bonnie’s chart as children of Eseck and Eunice and it has been discovered they are actually Myron’s children. Henry S was entered as a child of Eseck and Eunice so perhaps he is also their grandchild, son of Myron who appears to be missing from the Circular Chart.

 

Good Luck!

Notes for William Dawson WHEATON:

Information from Lee H WHEATON 11/6/2004 (copied from his message, but reorganised as a list)

“I believe I can prove to any reasonable person the Descendents of William Dawson WHEATON to me.

* I have death notices, deeds, and references from a private letter to the Yarmouth Herald that was published on Thursday August 24, 1882 on William Dawson WHEATON (“Old Mr. WHEATON”) being buried in Knowlesville, New Brunswick.

* I do not have a copy of the private letter and have not seen it but it is referenced in Judson Cory’s book “The Story of Knowlesville” p77.

* I have the date of William D. WHEATON’s death in Knowlesville from the “Religious Intelligencier”.

* William Dawson WHEATON and his son George William WHEATON, (my Great Grandfather) owned a farm together and I have a photocopy of this deed.

* I tend George William WHEATON and Annetta Amelia Wyman WHEATON’s grave in Patten, Maine USA.

* I have recently mailed Jean SHERWOOD photocopies of some unidentified newspaper clippings from 1900 – 1901 genealogical work that list Caleb b 1 Oct 1713 as son of James b 27 Oct. 1685 and Mary Shaw. I was given this information by a relative who has forgotton that she gave it to me. I think I will have to make a personal trip to the New Haven, Connecticutt, USA area and attempt to locate the source of this information.

Connecting William Dawson WHEATON to the 1 Oct 1713 Caleb to my satisfaction will require a careful reading by myself of some work that Jean SHERWOOD and others did a couple of years ago, and possibly a personal trip to Cornwallis, N.S.

Information from Kelly WHEATON GEDCOM 13/5/2011

Josephus WHEATON, Rev., b. Mar. 16, 1788, s. of Joseph W., Esq., of Rehoboth, a descendant fr. Rev. W., the 2d pastor of the Bap. chh. of Swansey, “early evinced a strong thirst for knowledge,” and by his own energy and perseverance, obtained a thorough education.He grad. with distinguished honor, in 1812, at B. U., where he continued his residence, studied theology, and at the same time, had charge of the Acad. connected with the Univ., was tutor in the same, 1813-15; licensed, 1814; ordained pastor at H., Dec. 6, 1815; and d. of a consumption, Feb. 4, 1825. He was by nature, a most amiable man, endowed with fine sensibilities, rare sagacity and self-control. He penetrated into the arcana of whatever he made his study, and could communicate his knowledge with readiness and propriety. As a tutor, he excelled in gaining the esteem of undergraduates, and in rendering them thorough in their studies, and circumspect in their deportment; and had he chosen the profession of a teacher, few of his cotemporaries could have excelled him at the head of a college. But this was to him a secondary calling. From the date of brightened hopes in the pardoning mercy of God, his heart and understanding were fixed upon preaching the Gospel as the highest pursuit in which men or angels can engage; and from that time he devoted all his energies to become a workman that would not need to be ashamed. He had previously pursued a variety of studies, having no reputed direct connection with the duties of the sacred office, yet “well calculated” to prevent that hostility to science, which belittles not a few otherwise valuable men, and “to enlarge his sphere of ministerial usefulness.”

 

His various attainments, soundness in doctrine and evident consecrationhis appearance as a speaker, and his plain, yet winning address, fitted him peculiarly to harmonize and restrain the then discordant elements of H., and to inculcate and defend those truths, which alone could ensure permanent peace. For such reasons, H. was proposed to him, and he to H.; and he was engaged to supply the pulpit, before he resigned his tutorship. After his settlement, the chh. had rest, and was edified.

 

“In his intercourse with his people, Mr. Wheaton’s wisdom was evangelical; first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated. His conciliating deportment, amiable temper, and dignified, yet unaffected manners, won the affections of those who were not always pleased with his theological sentiments;” which closely resembled those of his worthy predecessor, and embraced the peculiarities of Calvinism to which the term Hopkinsian is applied by way of designation. He was completely successful in uniting and harmonizing this people at a time when they were found not a little discordant in opinion and feeling; and enjoyed, in an unusual degree, their respect, confidence, and affection, from the commencement to the close of his ministerial life.

 

“Mr. W. was a student as well as a pastor. What time the more active duties of his office would permit, he was with his book and his pen. He excelled in an intimate acquaintance with the classics. His literary character, and eminent talents as an instructor of youth, made his house a favorite resort of young men fitting for college, or perfecting their education.”

 

“As a preacher, Mr. W. was, what he principally aimed to be, instructive. Yet he was also an animated and animating preacher. His whole soul appeared in his work. To be eloquent was not his object; and yet he was occasionally eloquent to a high degree. His style was worthy the man who wrote, and of the important subjects on which it was employed. He seemed to think with Addison, that good thoughts ought to be well dressed. As it respects the delivery of his discourses, it was natural,” though uncommonly rapid; “and his animation, united with the rich materials of his sermons, made him a highly acceptable speaker.”

 

“His piety was ardent; and humility was a distinguishing feature of it. His trials with respect to his own piety, though not without example, were peculiarly severe. But his sun was not always overcast; he hoped in God; resigned himself with confi- dence to his disposal; and often had joy and peace in believing.” [Chris. Magaz.]

 

During his ministry the present orthodox chh. was built and consecrated. On the latter occasion Mr. W. delivered a discourse, which was published”a lasting monument of the man and the event.” He published several other sermons, a work on School Education, and one often referred to, on the Equality of Mankind, and the Evils of Slavery.

Henry WHEATON (1785-1848) diplomat and authority on international law, was born in Providence on November 27, 1785. His parents, Seth and Abigail WHEATON were first cousins. (JKW note: At present the information I have been sent suggests they were 3rd cousins). He prepared for college at the University Grammar School and entered Rhode Island College at the age of thirteen. At Commenceent in 1803 he delivered an oration on “Progress of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences during the Eighteenth Century”, After gradualtion he read law in a local law office, and in 1805 went to Europe to study law at Poitiers. The next year he began the practice of law in Providence. In 1811 he married his cousins Catharine WHEATON, born 1782, who was the daughter of Levi WHEATON. Levi, who had a great influence on young Henry, became professor at the medical school at Brown. (Continues as above until 1823) …a member of the New York Assemble, and ran unsuccessfully for the United States Senate. In 1827 President John Quincey ADAMS appointed him chargé d’affaires to Denmark, where he negotiated a treat recovering payment from the seisure of American ships and became proficient in the Danish language. In 1845 he was appointed chargé d’affaires in Berlin and two years later was promoted to envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Prussia. His diplomatic career spanned the administrations of six presidents from John Quincey ADAMS who appointed him to James J POLK, who dismissed him. (Continues as above, but amongst titles of books adds…) “The Validity of the British Claim to a Right of Visitation and Search of American Vessels Suspected to be Engaged in the African Slave Trade” in 1842 and “History of the Law of nations in Europe and America from the Earliest Times to the Treaty of Washington (a work which was first written in French for a competition of the French Institute, in which it won honorable mention) in 1845.

Henry Wheaton

 

WHEATON, Henry, lawyer, born in Providence, Rhode Island, 27 November, 1785; died in Dorchester, Massachusetts, 11 March, 1848. He was a descendant of Robert WHEATON, a Baptist clergyman, who emigrated from Swansey, Wales, to Salem, Massachusetts, but subsequently settled in Rhode Island. After graduation at Brown in 1802, Henry studied law under Nathaniel SEARLE, was admitted to the bar in 1805, and in that year continued his studies in Poictiers and London. On his return to this country he practised law in Providence till he removed in 1812 to New York, where he edited in 1812-’15 the ” National Advocate,” the organ of the administration party. In this paper he published notable articles on the question of neutral rights in connection with the then existing war with England. On 26 October, 1814, he became division judge-advocate of the army, and from 1815 till 1819 he was a justice of the marine court of New York city. From 1816 till 1827 he was reporter for the United States supreme court in Washington, D. C., and published “Reports of Cases argued and determined in the Supreme Court of the United States” (12 vols., New York, 1826-‘7). This was termed by a German re viewer “the golden book of American law.” William B. LAWRENCE says: “The reputation which Mr. WHEATEN acquired as a reporter was unrivalled, he did not confine himself to a mere summary of the able arguments by which the cases were elucidated; but there is scarcely a proposition on any of the diversified subjects to which the jurisdiction of the court extends, that might give rise to serious doubts in the profession, that is not explained not merely by a citation of the authorities adduced by counsel, but copious rules present the views which the publicists and civilians have taken of the question.” He was elected a member of the convention to form a new constitution for New York in 1821, was a member of the assembly in 1823, and in 1825 was associated with John DUERand Benjamin F. BUTLER in a commission to revise the statute law of New York. He also took part in important cases, and was the sole associate of Daniel WEBSTER in that which settled the limits of the state and Federal legislation in reference to bankruptcy and insolvency. In 1827 he was appointed charge d’affaires in Denmark, being the first diplomatist that was sent to that country from the United States. He served till 1835, displaying skill in the settlement of the Sound dues that were imposed by Denmark on the vessels of all countries, and obtained modifications of the quarantine regulations. He acquired reputation by his researches in the Scandinavian language and literature, and was elected a member of the Scandinavian and Icelandic societies. In 1835 he was appointed resident minister to the court of Prussia., and he was promoted to minister-plenipotentiary in 1837. He soon received full power to conclude a treaty with the Zollverein, which object he pursued for the ensuing six years. On 25 March, 1844, he signed a treaty with Germany, for which he received high commendation from President TYLER and John C. CALHOUN, the secretary of state. This was rejected by the United States senate, but served as the basis for subsequent treaties. In 1846 he was requested by President POLK to resign his post, but, on his return to the United States in 1847, he was honored by public dinners in New York and Philadelphia, and immediately chosen lecturer on international law at Harvard, which office he was prevented by illness from accepting. He was made a corresponding member of the French institute in 1843, and a member of the Royal academy of Berlin in 1846. Harvard gave him the degree of A. M. in 1825, and he received that of LL.D. from Brown in 1819, from Hamilton in 1843, and from Harvard in 1845. He delivered many addresses before literary societies, among which were those before the New York historical society on the ” Science of Public or International Law” (New York, 1820), and at the opening of the New York athenaeum, afterward the Society library (1824). His most important work is ” Elements of International Law ” (Philadelphia, 1836 ; 2 vols., London, 1836 ; 3d ed., Philadelphia, 1845: French translation, Leipsic and Paris, 1848). This book was at once acknowledged as a standard authority. At the instance of Anson BURLINGAME, minister to China., it was translated into Chinese and published at the expense of the imperial government (4 vols., Pekin, 1865). It was also translated into Japanese. The 6th edition, with the last corrections of the author, was published by William Beach LAWRENCE, with a biographical no-rice (Boston, 1855). The 8th edition, by Richard H. DANA, Jr., was published with notes (Boston, 1866). The use of Mr. LAWRENCE’s notes in the previous editions resulted in a protracted legal controversy, concerning which see DANA, RICHARD HENRY, vol. ii., page 71. William B. LAWRENCE’s ” Commentaire sur les elements du droit international et sur l’histoire des progres du droits des gens de Wheaten” was published (4 vols., Leipsic, 1868-’80). Mr. WHEATON’s other publications are ” Considerations on the Establishment of a Uniform System of Bankrupt Laws throughout the United States ” (Washington, 1815) ; “A Digest of the Decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States from its Establishment in 1789 to 1820” (1820-‘9); “Life of William PINKNEY,” which was also published in Sparks’s “American Biography ” (1826) ; “History of the Northmen, or Danes and Normans, from the Earliest Times to the Conquest of England by William of Normandy,” which Washington Irving said “evinced throughout the enthusiasm of an antiquarian, the liberality of a scholar, and the enlightened toleration of a citizen of the world” (London, 1831; French translation by Paul Guillot, Paris, 1844); ” Histoire du progres des gens en Europe depuis la paix de Westphalie jusqu’au congres de Vienne, avec un precis historique du droit des gens europeens avant la paix de Westphalie” (Leipsic, 1841), written in unsuccessful competition for a prize offered by the French institute and translated into English by William Beach LAWRENCE as “A History of the Law of Nations in Europe and America from the Earliest Times to the Treaty of Washington” (New York, 1845); and “An Enquiry into the Validity of the British Claim to a Right of Visitation and Search of American Vessels suspected to be engaged in the Slave-Trade” (Philadelphia and London, 1842; 2d ed., 1858). Mr. WHEATEN translated the “Code of Napoleon,” but the manuscript was destroyed by fire, and he also contributed numerous political, historical, and literary articles to the “North American Review” and other periodicals. A discourse, “The Value of a Man,” was published on his death by the Reverend Edward B. HALL (Providence, 1848).–His son, Robert, author, born in New York city, 5 October, 1826 ; died in Providence, Rhode Island, 9 October, 1851, spent his early life in Copenhagen and Paris, but left his school in the latter city in 1841 to devote himself to engineering, which he abandoned in 1843, and attended lectures at the Sorbonne and the College de France. In 1847 he came to this country with his father, entered the Harvard law-school, and was admitted to the bar in 1851. He was a skilful musician, and published several able and thoughtful articles in the “North American Review” and other periodicals. “Selections” from his writings were published by his sister, Abby WHEATEN, with a memoir (Boston, 1854).
