INDEX

David Wheelock, born in Mendon, removed to what is now modern day Charlton when a young man. On 15 Aug 1740, his father gave him "in consideration ... of parental love and affection" 150 acres in the County Gore, a tract of 10,000 acres adjoining Oxford (Worcester Deeds, book 26, page 17). He must have moved there after 15 Aug 1740, because the deed refers to him as David Wheelock "of Mendon". His brothers Jonathan and Paul also lived in the Gore, and were close neighbors. Unsatisfied with their representation in Oxford town affairs, residents of the County Gore signed a petition to become part of Charlton. David and his brother Jonathan both signed this petition on 12 June 1750. Finally, in 1757 the Gore was annexed to Charlton; becoming the northern section of the town.

David was active in the affairs of Charlton, holding office as a selectman in the years 1761, 1771, 1775, and 1777. (The first Board of Selectmen was formed in 1755.)

In 1779, a committee consisting of David Wheelock, Isaiah Blood, and Stephen Fay was chosen to provide for the families of Revolutionary War Soldiers of Charlton. In September of that year, the town voted to raise 900 pounds for this purpose.

In 1781 Jacob Davis, an active participant in Charlton town affairs, and a Colonel in the Revolutionary War, organized several residents of Charlton to purchase a tract of land in Vermont, later to become the town of Calais. David was one of the 60 original proprieters of Calais, as were his nephews Peter and Eli Wheelock.

David passed his interest in Calais to his son, Abijah, who became the first permanent settler of Calais in 1789. Abijah purchased lot 51 of the first division from Col. Davis for 20 pounds lawful English money.

David's first wife, Lydia White, died in the "great sickess" of 1759. His children Jemima and Hendrick also died in 1759, at an early age, probably suffering the same fate.

He married 2nd Rachel Chapin, half sister to Abigail Chapin, his brother's wife.

David Wheelock left no will, but the settlement of his estate is found in the Worcester County Probate Office, file 63644.
