THE WHEELER FAMILY. IN reply to a letter from the compiler, Mr. Justice Joseph P. Bradley, of the United States Supreme Court, Washington, whose mother was a Wheeler, gave the following interesting account of the Wheeler family. I. Thomas Wheeler, who first settled at Concord, and came to Fairfield in 1644, in the company headed by Rev. Mr. Jones. He left his son Thomas at Concord, but brought with him to Fairfield 2. His son Capt. John Wheeler, of Black Rock, and 3. His nephew Ephraim Wheeler, of Fairfield. There was a cotemporary, Thomas Wheeler, of Milford, and his brother William, of Stratford; but old Fairfield town and Redding were generally supplied with Wheelers from the sources I have named, and mostly from Capt. John, of Black Rock. He died in 1690, leaving his wife Elizabeth and thirteen children, whose names and ages are preserved in the records, and published by Savage (vol. iv., 498, top of page). Calvin Wheeler, my great-grandfather, was descended from the third son and seventh child, Joseph; but I have a partial record of the descendants of the oldest son, John, called Lieut. John Wheeler, who was born in 1663. He married Abigail Burr, March 12, 1692 (no doubt daughter of Jehu Burr 2d). Their children are given in the Fairfield Book of marriages and births, as follows: I. I. John, b. 1694, d. 1726; 2. Sarah, b. 1696; 3. Abigail, b. 1698, m. Samuel Murwin, 1722; 4. Mary, b. 1701, d. 1714; 5....show more
