This is probably the John Wheelock for whom a Charlton Guardianship was filed in Worcester County Probate Office, case 63607.
Edward Wheelock, Johns brother, sold his Charlton land holdings to John Wheelock (of Spencer) in 1793. (Worcester County Deeds, Book 119, Pg 642).
John is enumerated in the 1790 Federal Census, living in Spencer with 2 females, and one other male over 16.
He's in the 1800 Census, in Charlton, 2 boys between 10 and 15, a girl under 10 (probably Sally), and female between 16 and 25 (probably the youngest female in the 1790 census). Also enumerated - a male 26 to 44 (presumably John), and a female 2 6 to 44 (presumably his wife, Lydia).
He's in the 1810 Census in Charlton, with a boy under 10, a male 16 to 25, a female 16 to 25 (probably Sally) - in addition to a male 26 to 44 (presumably John), and a female 26 to 44 (presumably Lydia, his wife).
The census records leave room for additional unrecorded children, born in the following time frames:
1 boy (born before 1775)
1 girl (born before 1775)
The above are probably not their children, since both would have been born well before Paul and Lydia were married.
2 boys (born between 1785 and 1790)
1 girl (born between 1775 and 1784, too old to be their daughter))
1 boy (born between 1800 and 1810)
1 boy (born between 1785 and 1794, he's possibly one of the boys above)
John has a veteran's marker next to his headstone. He may be the same John Wheelock that served as a drummer in Capt. Luke Wilder's company, Col. Samuel Denney's Regiment, at Claverack, Oct-Dec 1779.
The following inscription appears on John's headstone:
Death like an overflowing stream
Sweeps us away our lifes a dream,
An empty tale, a morning flower,
Cut down and withered [in our hour].
His administration of estate, dated 1816, Charlton, is on file at the Worcester County probate office, case 63709.HOME INDEX

According to "The Wheelock Family of Calais, VT", by Marcus W. Waite:
He came to Calais as early as 1808, and on Nov 6, 1812 bought of Abijah Wheelock 86 acres of land in lot 51 of the 1st division, where they made their home for many years. Clara died Aug 22, 1850 and Welcom died Mar. 20, 1865. He was selectman 1825-26 and 1837, and held other town offices. He was owner of three pews in the "Old West Church", Calais. Both he and Clara are buried in Robinson Cemetery, in Calais. A newspaper notice at time of his death states: "At the time of his death he was clerk and treasurer of the first Universalist Society in Clais, which office he had held for the last 25 years and had never been absent from a meeting.He was also clerk of the first Meeting-house Society in Calais for the last 31 years, and had also been clerk and treasurer of the school district in which he lived for the last 30 years." His granddaughter, (Miss Carrie Wheelock) has three commissions signed by the Governor of Vermont, appointing him 2nd Lieutenant, then 1st Lieutenant, and finally Captain.HOME INDEX
