Mother: Dorothy Wilder
Spouse: James Smedley
Intention: 24 Jan 1807, Williamstown, Berkshire Co, MA
Both Emily and James were "of Williamstown" on 24 Jan 1807 when they filed their intentions to marry.
They were probably at Hinesburg, Chittenden Co, VT, in 1810. One male age 26 to 44 (James), one male 16 to 26, one male 10 to 15, one female 16 to 25 (presumably Emily) and one female 10 to 15. It is unclear who the younger males and females were; they were too old to be children.
Elisha, elder half-brother of James, was also at Hinesburg in 1810, remaining there until his death in 1843. Emily's sister, Lucinda, was "of Hinesburg" when she married Pliny Blackman on 1 Dec 1814.
James Smedley had a claim against the estate of Israel B. Perry of nearby Charlotte, his presumed brother in law (Chittenden County, Vermont, probate records, Israel B. Perry administration, 4:23, image 33 at FamilySearch.org).
They moved to Royalton, Niagara Co, NY, before 5 Oct. 1817 when the Congregational Church of Royalton was organized with James Smedley as a member. [Src: History of Niagara County, N.Y.: With Illustrations Descriptive of its Scenery…” (New York: Sanford, 1878), p. 357, at Archive.org.]
James Smedley died before 10 May 1819, when Emily posted bond as co-administrator of her husbands estate (see notes for James).
On 11 Aug 1819 Joseph Ellicott deeded 63 acres in Niagara Co (township 14, range 6, northeast part of lot 8, section 3) to Emily Smedley, of Niagara Co (Niagara County, New York, deed 5:433). The same parcel was then sold in separate deeds dated 1832 by her two sons, Elisha Smedley (of West Bloomfield) and Alonzo E. Smedley (of Royalton) to James Hitchcock (Niagara County deeds 8:18, 8:19). In each deed, the grantor calls himself "one of the four children and heirs at law of Emily Smedley deceased."
The probate documents for James Smedley include references to his children Alonzo, James, and Dexter, who, along with Elisha, were identified as heirs and next of kin of Mary (Wheelock) Grandey (Emily's sister) in an 1839 probate notice. [Src: Probate Notice, Albany Argus (Albany, New York), 4 Oct 1839, p. 4, col. 4.]
Elisha Smedley, James Smedley, John D. Smedley, and Elijah A. Smedley, heirs of James Smedley deceased of Royalton, appointed Samuel E. Hitchcock to be their guardian, 25 Feb 1828, possibly after the death of their mother. [Src: New York: Abstracts of Wills, Admins. and Guardianships, 1787-1835, at AmericanAncestors.org, 7 June 2021.] Note that John D. Smedley and Elijah A. Smedley do not appear in the probate records of their father, James Smedley, possibly because John D. Smedley had midle name Dexter, and may have gone by the name Dexter Smedley in his youth. And Elijah A. Smedley may be Alonzo E. Smedley.HOME INDEX

Thomas was a farmer, but opened his home as a tavern, which was kept as such for many years. He came to Alstead at the age of 21 years, then to Winchester in 1797. He is buried in the "Old Wheelock Homestead", in Winchester, NH.
"Wheelock Genealogy", by Carlyle Capron Wheelock and Winifred Thomson Gonseth, 1955, gives the following children: Simeon, Thomas, Abigail, John, William, Prudence, Mary, James, Jefferson, and Sally. No mention is made of Phineas, which comes from the records of Su Wetzel, a descendant of Phineas Wheelock and Prudence Dodge. Su, however, makes no mention of Jefferson or James.
Thomas Wheelock of WInchester wrote his will 1 Sep 1851, shortly after the death of his wife, and left bequests to his daughter, Abigail Jewell [Leavett?, not Fosgate], son William Wheelock, heirs of his son Simeon Wheelock, Mary Dudley daughter of his son Thomas Wheelock, Jr., deceased, his sister, Betsey Wheelock, and the heirs of Simeon Wheelock, Thomas Wheelock, Jr, and Abigail Jewell(?). He appointed Asahel J. Humphrey as executor. The will was witnessed by Amos Hunt, William H. Randall, Emily S. H. Randall. He attached a codicil on 9 Sep 1852 that modified the inheritance he left to his son William, and stipulated that Harriet Wheelock, wife of his son William, would have full use of the "homestead lot" during her natural life should she outlive her husband. The codicial was witnessed by Moses Thayer, Benjamin Kidder and Nancy McCundy(?). (Src: Cheshire County, NH, wills 79:212.)
Several children who died young are not mentioned in the will: John, Prudence, and Sally. James, Phinehas, and Jefferson are not mentioned, possibly because they also died young.
An unnamed male child (possibly Sally?) of Lieutenant Thomas Wheelock and Mary died in Winchester, 19 Oct 1804, age not give.
