The biography of George H. Wheelock can be found in "The History of Whiteside County, Illinois", by William W. Davis, Pioneer Publishing Company, Chicago, 1908, pg. 1234.

He spent the days of his youth in his parents home, attending the public schools. To supplement his education, he attended Fulton College, and graduated in 1883. He taught for six years, then, after a two year interval as a travelling salesman, he opened a business "dealing in monuments", which he operated for eight years. Shortly after this he settled on the old homestead farm, cultivating and improving it. He specialized in raising and feeding Durham cattle and Jersey Red hogs. In addition he owned six residences in the village of Erie, from which he derived rental income.

George H. Wheelock was director of the Wheelock School in Erie, IL, for many years, most of which time he was president of the board. The school, which he attended as a lad, was built on land donated by his father. (Src: "Presents History of Wheelock School at Community Meeting", article published in the Sterling Daily Gazette, 15 Sep 1941, Sterling, IL.)

His obituary mentions children Harold, Howard, and Robert, and grandchildren George and Warren Wheelock, of Erie. (Src: Sterling Daily Gazette, 15 Feb 1954.)

Moses Bond Wheelock (1768-1848) was a schoolteacher in Templeton, Mass. He was born in Westborough, the son of Colonel Moses Wheelock (1736-1801), a minuteman and prominent citizen of Westborough, and his second wife, Lydia Bond of Mendon. He married Catherine Gleason (1774-1847) in 1793 in Southborough. They had five sons and one daughter, all of whom were born in Barre. He died in Barre in 1848.

Moses Bond Wheelock kept a diary during the years 1788 and 1789. This diary, help by the American Antiquarian Society, in Worcester, MA, contains very general references to his being a teacher, to his mundane daily life, and a few general items on the treatment of those who were ill. It does contain detailed references to the daily weather. There are also many references to Eli Whitney (1765-1825), his friend in Westborough and the inventor of the cotton gin. There is also one reference to the purchase of books at the bookstore of Isaiah Thomas (1749-1831) in Worcester, Mass.
