Abigail Wheelock was the daughter of Reverend Doctor Eleazar Wheelock (Yale College, 1733, University of Edinburgh, 1767) and his second wife, Mary (Brinsmade) Wheelock. Her father was the founder and first president of Dartmouth College (previously Moor's Indian Charity School of Columbia, Connecticut).
