Immediate Family

About Alpheus Wheelock Kellogg

Alpheus Wheelock Kellogg was an American educator and state legislator.

He was born on July 26, 1810 in Jamaica, Windham Co., Vermont, to parents John Kellogg and Nancy (Chapin) Kellogg. He was the eldest of eight children born to his parents; he also had two half-siblings later on through his father.

Alpheus served as Jamaica's representative to the state legislature in 1829, 1830, 1858, 1859, 1860, and 1861. [Note from curator: It is possible that the 1858-1861 representative was a different Alpheus Kellogg, but I have not found one yet.]

After his service in Jamaica, he moved to Metuchen, Middlesex Co., New Jersey, where he served as a schoolteacher for more than 30 years and earned the nickname "The Old School Master." He also taught at some point in Edison (formerly Raritan), Middlesex Co., New Jersey.

Alpheus died on October 27, 1895 in Metuchen. He died unmarried and with no known children.
