John Hill Wheeler 1806 - 1882 his parents
& 1830 Mary Elizabeth Brown
1810 - 1836 | her parents
& 1838 Ellen Oldmixon Sully 1816 - 1896
| her parents
of North Carolina and Washington DC


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!


1806 - John Hill Wheeler was born in Murfreesboro NC on the 2nd of August 1806, son of John Wheeler, Merchant and his wife Maria Elizabeth Jordan as their 6th child [four had died as infants]

He was educated at the Hertford Academy and Columbian University in Washington, D.C. 

1826 - He grad 1826 from Columbian College of Washington, D.C. [now George Washington University] and practiced law, having studied under the chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court [MA from UNC.]

           
candidate for House of Commons. Hornet's Nest- Nov. 28, 1827
Col John H Wheeler served in the State Assembly between 1827 and 1852 at various times. 

19 April 1830 -  John Hill Wheeler married Mary Eliza Brown.

Children were born Richard 30 March 1831 - died 13 Sept 1832;
 Elizabeth 14 Dec 1832; and Julian 7 Aug 1835.

4 Oct 1836 - Mary Eliza Brown Wheeler died.

Raleigh Biblical Recorder Dec 7 1836: Mary Eliza Wheeler's father, Rev. O B Brown believed that females were equal to men in mind and gave her every encouragement to learn. "The whole circle of literature and science she trod with enthusiastic delight. In the Latin and Greek languages, she became more than a proficient and could carry on a familiar conversation in the former with classical accuracy and perfect facility. Besides the French, she had also made significant progress in several others of the modern languages, especially the Spanish and Italian, to be able to read them with advantage. In general mathematics, natural philosophy, astronomy, chemistry, botany, popular anatomy, physiology, geography, history and chronology, she was well versed; and so minutely exact was her knowledge of the different branches of study, that she was frequently appealed to by gentlemen of liberal education to decide questions of literary criticism, or scientific discussions. Nor was she unmindful of the ornamental branches of education, especially those of painting and music, in both of which she attained to superior excellence. But her extensive and various acquirements in all the branches of solid learning, which surpassed any of her sex in this country, constituted only in a subordinate degree her real worth. . . . She had not only read the sacred pages over and over, but had pondered them deeply in her mind; and the margin of her bible is filled with notes and reflections marked with her own hand, shewing an evangelical train of thought, arising from a mind sanctified by the Holy Spirit of God . . ."  She never joined a church; was very interested in Sunday school work and charity to the poor. Died at Tuleyries, near Millwood, VA. Oct 4 1836. [Millwood's over near the West Virginia border. The obit. was likely composed by S J Wheeler.] -- compliments of Tom Parramore

 1854 - appointed the third U.S. Minister of Nicaragua"In 1854, he was appointed Minister to Nicaragua. He left Washington for Nicaragua with a servant woman and her two sons, who were his slaves. Upon reaching Philadelphia, a mob entered the ferryboat, and in spite of the entreaties of the woman and her boys, took them violently from Colonel Wheeler. He also had ill-luck in Nicaragua, he sided with the wrong party in a civil war, was imprisoned and ordered executed. The intercession of the American Secretary of Navy saved him.

From "Doctor Quintard, Chaplain C.S.A. and Second
Bishop of Tennessee".  Edited by Sam Davis Elliott.
Published 2003 Louisiana State University Press.

"My traveling companion on the night of this
occurrence and the following day was Colonel Wheeler,
Ex-Minister to Nicaragua, Vestryman in Dr. Pinckney's
Church in Washington, D.C., one of the most agreeable
men to take a trip with I had ever met.  His wife was
a daughter of Sully the artist."  page 20

Dr. Quintard was traveling through the Virginia
mountains in August/Sept 1861 attempting to join his unit.

 and then decided to make a trip through the blockade to England and France in the middle of the Civil War to copy records about Colonial North Carolina.

3 great Uncle

Samuel Jordan Wheeler 1810 - 1879his parents  
& 1836 Lucinda Pugh Bond 1814 - 1879 | her parents
of Murfreesboro NC and Willow Hall, Bertie Co 


This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!



Dr. Samuel Jordan Wheeler
1810 - 1879
1833 M.D. University of Pa.
 Col of Calvary in the Confederate Army.
 Postmaster of Murfreesboro.

        My dear Daughters  affectionate and most welcome letter of 12th is received and this evening Jno D Pusy brot your note of 27th  - The vaccine virus that you used has been introduced into the arms of several persons and has taken finally.  Moses was vaccinated in 16th inst and it did not affect him until he came to camp, more than a fortnight - So long a time I never heard, or read of before - For a few days after reaching camp, he was very lively.  Walked up and down streets between encampments of different companies,  the observed of all, quite a hero regarded with especial regard as the Col's body servant - I read your letter to him,  in which you charged to take good care of his master, at which he had a significant - "hem" as much to say that his master had to take good care of him and such indeed has been the case.  For last week, it became necessary for me to communicate with Gen'l Roberson & Gen'l D. H. Hill, one living at Snow Hill distant about 5 miles, the other at Goldsboro 22 miles, as my presence was required at camp.   I sent Col Cahoon, unfortunatly his horses ran away and he was thrown violently to the earth, escaping narrowly with his life, so there was no alternative; I went. Moses was my escort. We returned to camp between midnight and day having ridden on horseback nearly 70 miles. You may suppose that I was somewhat fatigued, but the next day, or rather 3 hours after, when I arose I felt as bright as a lark, but my valet keeled over fairly, and went to bed, a very sick man: for 48 hours, the surgeon regarded his case as critical: meanwhile I watched & nursed him attentively: hence his significant "hem" when I read your monition "to take good care of his master." He has now reported for duty however and has gone out and attended to Fanny's wants.  I hear him now laughing in his own perculiar nervous manner.  In consequence of his indisposition we have no washing done this week, and the clothes he washed last week are not ironed.   I have just put on a collar, and although white and clean, this is not so smooth as you may have seen, but quite comfortable.
         I have just been interrupted by Dr. Ben Williams the great Psychologist  - He made many enquiries after old acquaintances, time seems to have dealt gently with him. On the Cars  not so long since, near Goldsboro,  I met Mr. Hughes, former proprietor of the "Aurora" - he heard my name, we soon found each other out - He inquired for you - At this time he is engaged in the office of the Illustrated News at Richmond -
         All my acquaintances are surprised at my being in the army.  And none are surprised more than myself.  In the still hours of night, when no sound is heard save the tread of the lone sentinel as he paces his beaten path.  I often lie sleepless on my camp cot and think, is it possible? Can this be myself?  once so peaceful, almost a preacher  - Splendid with all the appretenances of war in a military camp, sleeping soldiers all around me, my daily vocation to learn and teach the dreadful art of killing men, away from my home, on the hard fare of camp life, not infrequently sleeping in the open air leading a life entirely at variance with all my former habits - Can this be me? Well the deed is done, The Rubican is passed and my course is onward, no lingering regrets must impede my course.
          Perhaps you would like to know how my daily labors are arranged - Well at day break, the bugle sounds Reveille, when all arise, the general stir among the soldiers, excites horses, chickens, and dogs and for about an hour there is general hubbub, and at 7 a.m.  the bugle sounds Stable call, at 8 a.m. we are called to breakfast, at 9 a.m. the Guard is mounted - At 10 a.m. the whole regiment is ordered out to drill - at 12 a.m. bugle sounds Stable call, dinner at 12 1/2 p.m. - Regiment drills begin at 2 p.m.  At 5 p.m. soldiers wash & prepare for formal dress parade - this is the event of the day. Stable Call - or horses fed- at 6 p.m. Supper at 7 p.m. - At 8 p.m. the Retreat is sounded and at 9 p.m. the curfew sounds - or in military language - "Lights Out" and all retire.
        As to the location of the camp, my own habitation, my messmates, daily fare etc. I must defer writing until my next letter.
       Remember me affectionately to my dear sister & all the family & write again to
                                                                      Yr Affectionate Father

My dear Mother -
        I eagerly embrace the first opportunity of writing you.  Yesterday evening we arrived safely and with the exception of a delay mentioned in Hertford's communication to the "Express" we had not a single accident to happen to us.  The news you will also learn in that letter;  I propose to employ this letter in giving private news.  You must excuse the defects of this as I am constantly on duty and the few intervening moments are much confused by the conversation of the officers just now commenced dining.
        Rest assured last Wednesday will long be remembered by our company with gratitude to Murfreesboro.  I scarcely believe memory when she tells me of those few weeks.
        Having finished dinner I shall continue my letter.  We had crabs, bluefish, spots, and mullets besides ham for dinner.  Our table was made of plank unplaned set on legs of unhewn timber.  Our utensils of tin made up our soldierly table quipments.  But Oh! the water such stuff I never attempted to drink! Out of our tin drinking cups we strain it through our lips.  Our cake today we saved for hard times which we expect at most any time.  Out company is of good cheer and their only solicitude is sympathy with the feelings of those at home.   We are very well situated.  Better by far than we expected.  Portsmouth has about 500 inhabitants.  Joshua Taylor is dead and his family removed.  All this region is called Ocracoke.  Most of the troops are on this; the fort is on Beacon Island.  We are ready.  Goodbye, 
                                                                                   Your son John
