  • Name Thomas WHEELER  [1
    • WHEELER FAMILY (MILFORD)
      Wheeler, Thomas. Deputy (Milford) to Conn. Leg., May and Oct. 1670, May 1671.
      He was adm. to Milford Church, 9 Aug. 1640, and d. at Milford, 26 Nov. 1672. His wife Jane was adm. 27 Sept. 1640, and buried 11 June 1673. She is called Joan in probate records; no evidence has been seen for the oft-repeated assertion that she was a Bryan.
      Nor can we accept Orcutt's statement that the Milford Thomas was son of Thomas, Sr., of Fairfield, despite its acceptance by the compiler of the bulky 'Wheeler Family in America', for the Milford Thomas was certainly too old a man to permit of such identification. The wills of Thomas and of William of Stratford prove that they were brothers, but of their parentage we permit ourselves no guess.
      Will 18 Nov. 1672, proved 11 June 1673; eldest son John and John's three eldest daus., Sarah, mary, Elizabeth; 2d son Nathaniel and his dau. Esther; sons Ephraim and Joseph; son Thomas; my bros's children here, vis., William, Thomas, Sarah; wife Joan.
      Inv. of his widow Joan, 23 June 1673.
      John and Obadiah Wheeler had land in Stratford 1667, by gift from father Thomas of Milford. [1]
