Biographical Summary:

"...Wheeler Baldwin, a veteran of the War of 1812, was baptized at age thirty-seven...

"...Church historian John Whitmer noted that during his stay in Kirtland, Wheeler was instrumental in performing mighty miracles: "An old lady who had been helpless for the space of eight years [was] confined to her bed. She did not belong to this church, but sent her request to the Elders-who immediately attended to her call … and laid their hands on her, and she was immediately made whole and magnified and praised God, and is now enjoying perfect health."..."

"...By 1853 Wheeler had denied the faith and embraced Alpheus Cutler's "True Church of Jesus Christ." He moved with the Cutlerites to Manti, Iowa, in 1854...."

"...Wheeler was the presiding elder of the Fremont District of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1867 and attended the Thurman Iowa Branch and the Pleasant Grove Missouri Branch. He died at the age of ninety-four in Stewartsville, Missouri..."'
