Death: 28 Jun 1873

Burial: Christ's Church Cemetery, Fort Kent, ME

Mother: Abigail Lovitt

Spouse: Sophronia Baker
Marriage: 1840, Madawaska, Aroostook Co, ME

  2. Jessie Wheelock, born 18 Dec 1840, Hancock Plantation, Aroostook Co, ME
  3. Jessie Powers Wheelock, born 3 Jul 1842, Hancock Plantation, Aroostook Co, ME

  7. Sophronia Abigil Wheelock, born 23 Nov 1853, St. John, Aroostook Co, ME

Notes:

Jesse was the son of Jesse Wheelock, Sr. and Abigail Lovitt. He descends from Rev. Ralph Wheelock, his Puritan immigrant ancestor, who came to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1637, as follows: Jesse/Jesse/Obadiah/Obadiah/Benjamin/Ralph. His father, Jesse, Sr., was born in Mendon, MA, and moved with his family, probably as a child, to Shrewsbury, MA. Sometime later he moved to neighboring Northborough, where the births of two children are recorded, including Jesse, Jr. Deeds show that he sold land in Northborough in 1786, and moved to Union Township, Lincoln Co, Maine before 1800, where he is enumerated in the 1800 Census. Jesse, Jr. must have been a teenager at the time, and no doubt spent his early years in this part of Maine.

In 1830 Jesse, Jr. moved to the South Bank of the St. John River (now Aroostook County). A survey of the lots in that region, taken in 1831, indicate that Jesse Wheelock and Walter Powers began cutting trees on their lot in Aug 1830, and built a log house where they lived that winter. [1] The 1830 Census enumerates Jesse Wheelock as the only member of the household, age 40-50 years. [2] He appears in the 1834 New Brunswick Census living alone in his household, on ungranted land on the right bank of the St. John; no livestock, no seeds sown last spring, no crops raised. [6] The 1840 Census enumerates him, age 50-60 years, with three others, a male, age 15-20, a female, age 15-20, and a female, age 20-30. [3] The 1850 Census shows Jesse, age 66, born in Mass, living with his wife, Sophronia, age 32, born in Maine, and two children, Jesse B., age 3, and Martha, age 1. [4]

A border dispute between Maine and New Brunswick raged over much of the Madawaska region, where Jesse Wheelock, along with many other French and English settlers lived. In March, 1831 the Maine Legislature passed an act incorporating the town of Masardis, in the county of Penobscot, in an attempt to gain control of the region. In accordance with this act a writ was issued to Walter Powers, calling a meeting of the Madawaska inhabitants on 30 Aug 1831. In this meeting, Jesse Wheelock was chosen Town Clerk. The lieutenant-governor, unhappy with these actions, hastened to Madawaska with a body of soldiers, and arrested Jesse Wheelock and three others. The prisoners were taken to Fredericton, N.B., were tried by the Superior Court, and sentenced to pay a fine of fifty pounds and serve three months in prison. Through actions of the US Federal Government in Washington, the sentences were cut short, and none of the four served the full term. The border dispute was finally settled in 1842, with the Webster-Ashburton Treaty between the United States and Great Britain. [5]

Jesse died at Hancock Plantation, Aroostook County, Maine. It is presumed the nearby locations of Wheelock, Wheelock Island, and Wheelock Mills derive their names from him, or his family. His ornate headstone, located in Christ's Church Cemetery, Fort Kent, ME, reads as follows:

Jesse Wheelock - born in Northborough, Mass. - Oct. 15, 1784 - Died June 28, 1873 - Sophronia His Wife - Born in Mosco, Maine - May 20, 1816 - Died July 23, 1858

LDS records supposedly indicate that Jesse was married once prior to his marriage to Sophronia Baker. This would certainly explain his advanced age at the time of his second marriage. These records show that he married Phoebe Golden, b. abt 1788, probably in Northborough, MA, with whom he had two children. Phoebe died sometime after the birth of the second child. If this were true, it would explain the two children that appear in his household in the 1840 Census. These children, age 15 to 20, were too old the be the children of Sophronia. [8]

Samuel Wheelock

Birth: 21 Jun 1797

Death: 1878

Burial: Mountain View Cemetery, Cambridge, Lamoille Co, VT

Spouse: Polly Adams
Marriage: 6 Jan 1820, Waterville, Lamoille Co, VT

  7. Timothy Adams Wheelock, born 18 Jun 1832, Waterville, Lamoille Co, VT
  8. Columbia Wheelock, born 20 Aug 1834, Waterville, Lamoille Co, VT

Spouse: Jerusha _____
Marriage: DATE UNKNOWN

  1. Eleanor M. Wheelock, born about 1842, VT
  2. Emeline Wheelock, born about 1844, VT

Notes:

Samuel Wheelock was an early settler of Eden, VT. The first record of him there is a deed dated 13 Jan 1818 in which he appears as a grantee [1]. He is enumerated there in the 1820 Census, next to Martin Wheelock, with one other female adult living in the household, presumably his new wife, Polly Adams. He is enumerated in the 1830 Census living in Waterville with an adult female, four young boys, and two young girls. This tabulation agrees with the recorded births of his children in Waterville. In 1840 he is enumerated in Essex, Chittendon, VT with an adult female, six boys, and three girls. In 1850, he is enumerated in Colchester, Chittenden, VT, next to Willard Wheelock. He is listed as a house builder, age 50, born in NH, living with Jerusha Wheelock, age 47, son Timothy Wheelock, age 17, and daughters Columbia A. Wheelock, age 16, Eleanor Wheelock, age 8, and Emeline Wheelock, age 6. He is enumerated in the 1870 Census living in Burlington, VT, with his wife Jerusha.

The IGI shows the birth of Columbia Wheelock, 20 Aug 1834 in Waterville, presumed to be the daughter of Samuel and Polly (Adams) Wheelock.

The ancestry of Samuel Wheelock is not known for certain, but it is very likely he is either the sibling of, or closely related to brothers Daniel, Martin, and Walter, who settled Eden, VT in the same time frame. The following facts add weight to the argument: (1) Samuel appears next to Martin in the 1820 Census, (2) his Waterville record of birth (21 Jun 1797) fits well with the chronology of births in the family of Stephen and Lucretia (Newton) Wheelock, and (3) his place of birth (NH) indicated in the 1850 census is consistent with the location of the family at that time.

He died 1878 in Cambridge, per the Gazetteer of Lamoille and Orleans counties [2].
