INDEX

The Sturbridge Vital Records refer to him as "Gershom Wheelock", omitting the middle name "Blashfield". The same VRs make note that Gershom and Chester were born too close together. One or both of their birth records must be in error. Carlyle Capron Wheelock obtained some of the information about this family from Avery G. Wheelock, 10 Sep 1912.

INDEX

Obadiah Wheelock and family moved from Mendon to Shrewsbury probably before 1757 when Zipporah was married there, and possibly before 1752, when his son Ammariah was baptised in neighboring Grafton.

Obadiah Wheelock died in 1761 in Shrewsbury. In his will, Worcester County Probate case 63774, filed 27 Apr 1761, he mentions his wife Martha, eldest son Obadiah, second son Joseph, both of age; third son Elias, fourth son Jesse, and fifth son Ammariah, none of whom are yet of age. He then mentions his eldest daughter Zipporah Wood, wife of Josiah Wood, second daughter Martha Wheelock, and third daughter Abigail who is not yet of age.

At the close of the French and Indian war, the British government embarked on a program to replace the French speaking, Roman Catholic influence in Nova Scotia (and the other Canadian territories) with Protestant and English speaking influence. To encourage this, the British governors of Nova Scotia offered grants of free land to settlers. In the 1760's, a wave of New Englanders (called "Planters") migrated to Nova Scotia.

Among these were three members of this family, Obadiah Jr., Joseph, and Elias. Two of these (Obadiah and Elias) married into the Rice family of Marlborough, Massachusetts, many of whom also removed to Nova Scotia. (Source: George King, Rice Family Genealogist).

INDEX

There is record of death of a "Philetus Wheelock, in Burrillville, 10 Jan 1841". This record appears in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register", April, 1984, in an article entitled "Deaths in Rhode Island and Massachusetts", by Robert F. Kirkpatrick, from records originally transcribed by Francis Henry Inman. This is probably the same Phyletus.

The children Jeminia, Lydia Sayles, and Paul are taken from "The Wheelock Family in America, 1637-1969", by Walter T. Wheelock, 1969.

Daniel is listed in the Rhode Island Vital records as a "relative" of Phyletus and Avis, though the exact relation is not stated. In the Rhode Island Death Records we find "Daniel Wheelock, died 8 Sep 1872, 79 years old; relation 1: Philetus Wheelock; relation 2: Avis Wheelock". (Rhode Island Death Records, electronic search, Ancestry.Com, June 2000).

Daniel is buried in the same cemetery as his daughter, Avis Handy Wheelock, his wife, Phebe, and some of his children. (Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project, http://www.rootsweb.com/~rigenweb/cemetery)
