Calvin inherited land from his father in Franconia, NH, per his father's will.
Calvin Wheelock is listed as an early settler (before 1800) of Wyoming County, PA. In 1798 he sold land to Thaddeus Prentice. (Src: "History of Luzerne, Lackawanna, and Wyoming counties, Pa.; with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of Some of Their Prominent Men and Pioneers", published by W. W. Munsell & Co., 1880)
Calvin Wheelock is enumerated in the 1800 Census living Brantrim, Luzerne Co, PA. He is between age 26 and 44, with a female (his wife no doubt) between the age of 16 and 25, and a younger female (daughter) under 10.
The following notice is published in the 18 Aug 1809 edition of the Luzerne County Federalist: "Caution - All persons are hereby forewarned not to receive certain Notes, dated May 1805, which I gave to Calvin WHEELOCK, for a lot of land lying i n Braintrim Twp., as he has not fulfilled his contract and I am determined not to pay them, unless compelled by law. John B. GRIST, Delaware Co., Ohio."
Calvin is enumerated in the 1820 Census, living in Cincinnatus, Cortland Co, NY (not far from Pitcher, NY), age over 44. Also in the household are two males under 10, two males betwen 10 and 15, 2 females between 16 and 25, and one female between 26 and 44.
He is enumerated in the 1830 Census living in Pitcher, Chenango Co, NY, age 50 to 59, with a female age 30 to 39. In the same household are 4 males under 15, and 2 females under 10.
He is enumerated in the 1840 Census, again in Pitcher, age 50 to 59, with a female, age 30 to 39. In the same household is a male between 10 and 14, and 5 females under 15.
He is enumerated in the 1850 Census again living in Pitcher, Chenango, New York, born about 1775 in Rhode Island. In the same household is Phoebe Wheelock, born about 1792 in Connecticut, and Jerusha, born about 1830 in New York.
Keziah Wheelock, daughter of Calvin and Edith Wheelock, of Chenango Co, NY, b 28 Oct 1800, married Joseph Benedict 2 Feb 1833. (Src: "The Genealogy of the Benedicts in America", by Henry Marvin Benedict, Elwyn Ellsworth Benedict, published by Joel Munsell, Albany, 1870; Pg 181; online at books.google.com, June 2013.)
Calvin is buried in Ufford Corners Cemetery, Pitcher, NY with his wife Phebe, and Clarissa E. Wheelock, probably his daughter.
The fact that Calvin was born in Rhode Island, had a daughter named Keziah, and was of the right age is taken as sufficient evidence to place him in the family of Daniel Wheelock and Keziah Hunt. The timeline placing him in Luzerne Co, PA at about the time that his brother Esek went there from Rhode Island also fits the narrative.
There is a headstone for Edeth Whealock (sic) in the Cincinnatus Cemetery, Cincinnatus, Cortland Co, NY. The instriptions reads: "Here lies Edeth wife of Calvin Whealock, ded Sep 20th, 1816 AE 33y".

In the same cemetery is a headstone for Nancy Whealock (sic). The headstone reads as follows: "In Memory of Nancy, wife of Calvin Whealock who died March 4, 1827 in the 33rd year of her age. (Src: Headstone record, Cincinnatus Cemetery, Cincinnatus, Cortland County, New York, USA; documented at FindAGrave.com, memorial number 31008547, created 30 Oct 2008 b y Nareen, et al.)

This is most likely the Joseph Wheelock that was born 1 May 1763, Charlton, Worcester Co, MA, son of Eleazar Wheelock and Betty Woodward.
The circumstantial evidence is as follows:
(1) He is the right age.
(2) The name of his son, Woodward, matches his mother's maiden name.
(3) The name of his son, Eleazar, matches his father's name.
(4) Joseph has not been found anywhere else in the records, rendering this a plausible match.HOME INDEX
