Birth: 7 Jul 1760, Charlton, Worcester, MA

Death: 18 Sep 1797, Charlton, Worcester, MA

  8. Eli Wheelock, born 28 Jun 1797, Charlton, Worcester, MA

Notes:

Eli Wheelock was a Fifer in the Revolutionary War. He fought first, at the age of 15, in Colonel Ebenezer Learned's Regiment; and later under Colonel Cushing, and Colonel Jacob Davis. He was no doubt born in his father's house, which still stands on present day 275 Stafford Rd, the oldest house in the Northside (of Charlton, MA).

Upon his father's death in 1783, Eli Wheelock took over the tavern which the Wheelocks had operated out of a room in their house. In 1792, perhaps to complement the tavern business, Eli built a distillery 100 feet to the west of his home where he distilled gin, brewed beer, ran a malthouse and operated a corn mill. The business venture was successful enough to be referenced in Rev. Peter Whitney's "History of Worcester County", published in 1793 [1].

By that time, the road on which Eli operated his tavern and distillery was becoming more heavily traveled as a major route between Worcester and towns to the east. Taking advantage of this, Eli formed a partnership with Leonard Morey (who had married Phoebe Wheelock, a distant cousin) and began construction of a tavern, just west of his distillery. He planned for this tavern to be the finest between Worcester and Hartford. On 18 Sep 1797, according to village tradition, Eli died from injuries received during a fall from the third floor of the incomplete building. The building was later completed. In 1801, Isaiah and William Rider purchased 2/3 of the building, along with the distillery that Eli had previously operated. The Rider Tavern served travelers for many years, and in 1975 was acquired by the Charlton Historical Commission, which has been engaged in a process of continuous restoration.

Hannah Streeter, Eli's widow, received as her portion of his estate the eastern third of the tavern. After a brief move to Calais, VT, she returned to live in the tavern until 1806 [2].
