Death: 24 Dec 1881, Colden, Erie Co, NY

Father: Silas Wheelock
Mother: Rena Baldwin

Spouse: Eliza Palmer
Marriage: about 1833

  1. Clarinda Wheelock, born 13 Dec 1833, NY
  2. Orlando Wheelock, born 30 Jul 1834, NY
  3. Mary Ann Wheelock
  4. Albert Homer Wheelock, born 28 Jun 1839, Concord, NY

  7. Cyrus J. Wheelock, born Apr 1850
  8. Phoebe Wheelock, born 15 Nov 1852, Glenwood, Erie Co, NY
  9. Almina Wheelock


Persis (Park) Ivett lists the following children for Lewis: Orlando, Mary Ann, Albert, Clarinda, Lewis, Rena, Nina, Cyrus, and Phoebe.

The administration of Lewis' estate (Erie County Surrogate Court file # 24272) lists the following children: Orlando, Albert, Lewis, Irena, Almina, Cyrus, and Phoebe. It lists the following grandchildren: Edward E. Hedges(??), Mary Hedges, both of Colden, NY, Lewis Hedges, Esther(??) Alger(??), of Boston, Elmer Chase and ??? Chase of Boston, Erie Co, NY.

On 8 Feb 1833, Silas Wheelock, Lewis' father, bought "lot 38, in township 7, range 6", 100 acres of land in what is now Concord, N.Y. (or thereabouts), for $465 [1]. Shortly thereafter, in the same year, 1833, Lewis moved onto this lot [2]. He built a mill (on Buffalo Creek, Waterville), and set up farming operations [3]. Twelve years later, in 1845, Lewis was still living on the farm [4].

The following is a testimonial by Calvin Killom, a neighbor of Lewis:

"We moved over to Waterville about 1822 and located on lot thirty-eight, township seven, range six, on what has since been known as the Whelock place. Our house was on a small flat on the north part of the farm. There were no settlers in the northeast part of town when we came; there was no road along the creek nor in any direction. Isaac Beaver came two years after and located on Ransford Foot's flats. Robert Flint came in 1826 and settled on the Treat Place. Homer Barnes and his father came about 1830 and built a sawmill. Abner Wilson came, and he and Barnes built a grist mill. Hezekiah Griffith came about 1832, John Griffith and Lewis Whelock about '33..." [5]

The 1860 Erie County Census shows Lewis living in Concord, NY, with 4 male children, and 4 female children. The Census taker had sloppy handwriting, but the following names can be clearly discerned:

Orlando (age 25), Albert (age 21), Clarinda (age 19), Lewis (age 16), and Phoebe (age 9).

The 1870 Census shows Lewis living in Concord, NY, with his wife, Eliza, age 57 yrs; Cyrus (?), age 21 years; and Phebe, age 18 years. All were born in NY, except Eliza, who birthplace is not discernable.

The 1880 Census shows Lewis, age 72, farmer, living in Colden, Erie County, NY, with his wife Eliza, age 66, born in PA, and his son, Cyrus, age 30, working in a sawmill. The Census indicates Lewis' father was born in MA, and his mother was born in CT.

Lewis' obituary appears in the Buffalo Daily Courier Newspaper, 1 Dec 1881, and reads as follows:

"The death of Lewis Wheelock, one of the oldest residents of Erie County, occurred at Concord on the 24th, The deceased was born in Batavia, Genesee County, Dec, 5, 1807 but shortly afterwards removed to Erie county, where he resided for 70 years, 48 of which had been passed on his farm in Concord, Mr. Wheelock leaves a family of 8 children, 2 of whom reside in this city."

The administration of his estate (Erie County Surrogate Court File # 24272) indicates "that he left no will, so far as your petitioner, after diligen enquiry, has heard, or been able to discover".

Records on file at the Erie County Probate Office report that Lewis was buried in Sardinia, NY.
