About John Wheeler
The Wheeler genealogy says of John "He is said to have had five wives, the last marriage being Nov. 23, 1791, to Abia Turney." Jacobus shows this last wife to be Abiah Treadwell, widow of Edward Mitchell and Stephen Tunney.
His will was dated 21 September 1816, proved 26 April 1819. It names wife Abiah; sons Samuel, John Jr. and Stephen; granddaughter Lois wife of Thomas Lyon Jr. Nathan Seeley was appointed guardian to Sarah and Lydia Wheeler in 1786, and Seth Seeley was appointed guardian to Stephen Wheeler.
