The following obituary was found in the scrapbook of Carrie Wheelock. It is presented verbatim below.
15 Aug 1906
Charles Sumner Wheelock whose death yesterday afternoon was briefly chronicled in yesterday's paper was the son of the late Langdon C. Wheelock, Esq. He was graduated at Goddard Seminary, and entered Tufts College. After two years in the later institution, ill health compelled him to go further from the coast. He then took a course and graduated at the Eastman (??) Business College in Poughkipsie, N.Y.
For three years he was at the Chase Manhattan Bank in New York City, when ill health again compelled him to give up [..illegible...] purpose. The directors of the bank with great kindness gave him a years leave of absence during which time he hoped to regain his strength. For three years he was travelling, trying to find some place which would restore him to health, but his search, proving fruitless, he returned to his home of Barre where he had remained, except for brief intervals away, ever since, during which time he was a constant sufferer from asthma. The disease produced a weakened heart and resulted in heart failure.
Those who knew him well had many pleasant memories of his sparkling wit and his keen appreciation of things. It was this rare gift which kept him cheerful under most trying conditions and enabled him to find joy in life although forced by his illness to spend much of his time in his room. He was an ardent lover of outdoor sports, although denied large participation in them, an enthusiastic admirer of nature, and something of a naturalist in an unscientific way. He was a loyal citizen anxious for the best interests of his native city, and believing thoroughly in her bright future, he was a consistent temperance man and a staunch Universalist.
With him has died the last male in his line of the Wheelock family. He leaves his mother and one sister.
The funeral will be held at his late home, 145 North Main St, Barre, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
The friends are kindly requested not to send flowers.HOME INDEX

Birth: 1 May 1773, Charlton, Worcester Co, MA
Death: before 11 Oct 1802
Father: Eleazar Wheelock
Mother: Betty Woodward
Spouse: Rainey Patrick
Joseph is mentioned in the will of his grandfather, Silas Wheelock of Mendon, allowed 1793.
This is likely the Joseph Wheelock (married Rainey Patrick) who fathered Eleazer Wheelock (b. 12 June 1797 in Windsor Twp, VT) and Woodward Wheelock (b. 19 Apr 1799, in Windsor Twp, VT).
The evidence tying Joseph Wheelock of Windsor, VT with the Joseph Wheelock, born 1773, Charlton, MA is as follows:
(1) Both Joseph's are of similar age.
(2) Joseph of Windsor named his son Woodward, matching the maiden name of Joseph of Charlton's mother.
(3) He also had a son, Eleazar, matching the name of Joseph of Charlton's father.
(4) The Joseph of Charlton has not been found anywhere else in the records, rendering this a plausible match.
(5) No other parentage of the Joseph of Windsor has been found.
(6) A family tree at Ancestry.com identifies Irene Patrick's first husband as Joseph Wheelock (b. 1774, Worcester, MA, d. 29 Apr 1801, New York). The source for this information was given as "family records," and is consistent with the theory.
There is another possibility. The names Joseph gave his children are consistent with the naming patterns of Eleazar Wheelock (1749/50 - 1831) and Huldah Woodward (1757 - 1829) of Warwick, Franklin Co, MA. Warwick is closer to Windsor than Charlton. But no child of Eleazar and Huldah named Joseph has been found in the vital records, deeds, or probate records associated with this family. Furthermore, Joseph would have been born almost a full year before Eleazar and Huldah were married - not impossible - but the lack of evidence for a child named Joseph in this family argues against the possibility.HOME INDEX
Birth: 2 Jan 1836
Death: Feb 1916
Father: Joseph Wheelock
Mother: Harriet Pierce
Spouse: Martha Elizabeth Denney
Marriage: DATE UNKNOWN
Josiah resided in California in 1876. (Source: History of Sanbornton, NH, 1881)
The oral tradition of several descendants of Josiah Burley Wheelock is that he "left the East Coast on a ship, after a bar room brawl, leaving a wife a several sons". Another descendant reports that he "grew up in the Boston area, killed a man with a shovel, stowed on a whaler and went to San Francisco", where he met Martha Denney. He was supposedly born in Coventry, VT.
It is presumed, though no proof has yet been found, that the Josiah Burley Wheelock who married Martha Denney is the same Josiah B. Wheelock that that was born 2 Jan 1836, son of Joseph Wheelock and Harriet Pierce.
The evidence for this is as follows:
1) The dates fit,
2) Josiah's father, grandfather, and greatgrandfather lived in the vicinity of Coventry and nearby Newport, VT. His uncle and namesake, Josiah Burleigh Wheelock was born in Coventry.
3) The "History of Sanbornton, NH", by Rev. M. T. Runnels, published in 1881, reports that Josiah B. Wheelock was living in California.
(Source: Private records of Melody (Wheelock) Smith, and Karen Lansing, both descendants of Josiah Burley Wheelock, Nov 2000.)
The children of Josiah Burley Wheelock and Martha Denney (Hattie, Mary, Ida, Isabel, James, Dottie, Frances, Etta, Leonard, and Clinton) are taken from the private records of Karen Lansing, a descendant, Nov 2000.HOME INDEX
