Added a blog to capture thoughts, essays, and research notes that didn't seem to have any natural home on the WheelockGenealogy.com website.
Two generations of descendants of Philip Wheelock, of Floyd, Oneida Co, NY have been added, based on census records, obituaries, and www.FindAGrave.com records. In addition, the following have been added: descendants of Dexter Wheelock and Elsie Gray, of Atlas Co, IL; children of Henry Wheelock and Adelphia Converse (of Newfane, VT, and Byron, IL); and numerous other addtions and corrections.
Included a copy of Ralph Wheelock's signature, as it appeared circa 1655, at the end of his will.
The genealogies of many new families have been filled in, including Haskell Wheelock, Alonzo P. Wheelock, Burtis Lemuel Wheelock, Alpheus Wheelock, Thomas Seabury Wheelock, Alonzo J. Wheelock, and many others. Several corrections have been incorporated, and source references have been improved.
A discussion of the ancestry of Brigadier General Charles Wheelock (1812 - 1865) has been added to the Wheelock Mysteries page. To the best of my knowledge, there are no primary sources that identify the ancestry of his father, Daniel Wheelock (1768 - 1812). The oral tradition in this family insists that he is the son of Daniel Wheelock and Beulah Albee, of Uxbridge, MA; yet the vital and probate records do nothing to substantiate this claim. In fact, the vital records are silent about Daniel, and at first glance seem to contradict the family stories. But these oral traditions may still be true. A deeper discussion can be found here.
Finally, the documents in the downloads section have been updated to reflect these changes.
