- Isaac and Frances Wheeler arrived on the ship Jonathan in 1639. It is not known when this ship departed or arrived, but it is believed to be from the county of Hampshire and that she sailed from Southampton. Isaac is listed as bound for Charlestown. His widow, Frances, married second Richard Cook, and third, Thomas Green. (1)

Greenland ten acres description, etc. Bought of Thomas Moulton three acres 1655. To Job Lane ten acres, etc., 1657.

She died August 22, 1658, and he married (second) September 5, 1659, Frances Cook, who was born in 1608. She married (first) Isaac Wheeler, and (second) Richard Cook, who died October 14, 1648.

- According to "The History of the Wheeler Family In America, Descendants of Isaac Wheeler of Charlestown, Massachusetts, pg. 513": Isaac Wheeler is stated to have been the brother of Lieut. Joseph Wheeler and Capt. Timothy Wheeler. He was a resident of Charlestown, Massachusetts as early as 1639, and was admitted to the 1st church there, Sept. 30, 1642."
- "No trace has been found of the passenger list for that 1639 passage of the "Jonathan" to Boston. We know of some of the passengers only due to a lawsuit that later took place in Massachusetts Bay Colony during the years following the passage. During that lawsuit some people, including many passengers of the "Jonathan", gave written statements or testified and these remained as part of the court records. It is assumed by many that all those who gave statements in the case were passengers aboard the Jonathan, but that is not the fact." Marble Ancestors database
