  3. Sarah P. Wheelock, born 7 May 1817, NY
  4. Catharine Wheelock, born about 1820, NY

Spouse: Polly Carr
Marriage: between 26 Jul 1824 and 18 Mar 1825, probably Plattsburgh, Clinton Co, NY


Both he and his first two wives (Margaret, Betsey Hennesey) were "of Charlestown" when they married there in 1804 and 1809.

During the war of 1812 he was commisioned an ensign and second lieutenant in the 4th infantry, 3 Jan 1812; a first lieutenant 2 Sep 1813. He was honorably discharged 15 June 1815.1

He was a resident of Charlestown on 21 Jan 1812 when he wrote a letter to the Secretary of War accepting his appointment as an Ensign 4th Regiment U.S. Infantry.2

His regiment fought at the Battle of Plattsburgh in 1814. Per service record, he was left sick there 29 Aug 1814.3

He is enumerated in the 1820 U.S. census living in Plattsburgh, Clinton Co, NY, age 26 to 44, with a boy under 10 (possibly Elbridge Gery), another between 10 and 15 (possibly William Gray), three girls under 10 (Louisa, Catharine, Sarah), and a female age 26 to 44 (Elizabeth).

"Phineas Wheelock, assigner of Amos P. Delong," was granted 40 acres of land near Fort Wayne, Allen Co, Indiana, on 1 Aug 1844.4

Phineas' gravestone, in the Old Huntertown Cemetery, Hunter, Indiana, bears the following inscription: "Capt. Phineas Wheelock, an officer in the 4th Regiment, U.S. Infantry, during the War of 1812. Born Winchester, N.H. 1781. Died August 1st 1848. Aged 67 years."

Research Notes:

Phineas' second wife, Elizabeth, died in Plattsburgh on 26 July 1824.[1] By 18 March 1825, Phineas had married someone named Polly, with whom he sold land in Plattsburgh to David Broadwall.[2] It was probably the same Polly Wheelock of Plattsburgh to whom John Clifford mortgaged property there on 10 May 1850.[3] In 1850, Polly Wheelock, age 64, born in Connecticut, was living in Plattsburgh in the household of John Clifford, age 42, born New Hampshire, and Almina Clifford, age 46, who, like Polly, was born in Connecticut. This would suggest that Polly was perhaps the mother-in-law of John Clifford, and that Almina Clifford was her daughter. One of the children of John and Almina Clifford - Martin - identifies his parents as John Clifford and Polly Seeley, suggesting that Polly's name might have been Seeley before she married Phineas.[4]

In 1820, a Polly Seeley was living in a household in Plattsburgh consisting of two females, one 16 through 25 and the other 26 through 44 (probably Polly). This is very likely the woman who married Phineas, and signed the deed as his wife on 18 March 1825. She would have married Phineas between 26 July 1824, when his second wife died, and 18 March 1825, when she signed the deed. In all likelihood she went to Indiana with Phineas, and came back to Plattsburgh after he died to be with her daughter, Almina (Seeley) Clifford.

There are a few other facts that support "Seeley" as Polly's surname before she married Phinehas Wheelock. A Polly Seeley, age 9, died in Plattsburgh on 10 Nov 1818, daughter of Joseph.[5] This is possibly a daughter of Polly Seeley, whose husband therefore would have been Joseph Seeley. A Joseph Seeley, born circa 1778, died on 26 Dec 1819, and is buried in Riverside Cemetery, in Plattsburgh.[6] This fits with Polly's appearance as "Polly Seeley" in the 1820 census, and a marriage to Phinehas Wheelock between 26 July 1824, when Elizabeth (Henessey) Wheelock died, and 18 Mar 1825, when she appears in a deed as Phinehas' wife.

Polly's maiden name is given as Carr on family trees at, 5 Feb 2022. She was born in Torrington, Litchfield Co, Connecticut on 10 Dec 1786, the daughter of Robert and Mary.[7]
