Birth: Oct. 27, 1837
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: Nov. 27, 1924
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

Major is given name and not a military rank. Major C. Wheelock was a cabinet maker, the first of his line to depart from farming. Major and his wife Mary moved to Lawrence, MA, between 1865 and 1869, where he gained employment in the cabinet making factories. At the time, the industrial revolution was booming in the United States, while the economy of Nova Scotia was depressed.
