Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching my family's history continues to be a most challenging and rewarding experience. At the beginning, our family knew nothing of our ancestors beyond my great grandfather. We had no idea of who they were, where they began, their occupations, family sizes, nothing.

Thanks to the help of many family members and friends, both old and new, the technology of the Internet, The San Antonio Genealogical Society, and the vast data base of, a wealth of information has been learned about our beginnings. Thus far, over 2000 names have been added to the family tree. The research is still in progress, with new data constantly being added.

To all those who have assisted in this effort, I am most grateful.

RE: Wheeler Family
Oh darn.

My oldest (not necessarily proven) ancestors are
John & Agnes Wheeler. He was born in England about 1591 and died in Massachusetts about 1670.

Then his son David Wheeler & Sarah Wise;
their son Nathan Wheeler & Rebecca Safford;
their son David C. Wheeler & Ann Hawkins;
their son Thomas Wheeler & Elizabeth McNamara from Virginia. Then John Wheeler who moved to Tennessee; etc. etc.

Any of those familiar?

I guess I'm so proud of the Wheeler name, I just want us all to be related. haha

Danged enter button.

Hi there,

I've noticed that you created many Wheeler memorials and I'm a Wheeler!!! I'm thinking you and I are probably related.

I've researched the Wheelers for over 30 years. My tree is called Tina's Tree. If you'd like to contact me, my email is

My Wheeler lineage goes like this....

me, Tina Wheeler Sanders,
father, Robert W. Wheeler,
grandfather, Odis Arlington Wheeler
g-grandfather, Nat Watson Wheeler,
g-g-grandfather, Lycurgus Wheeler,
g-g-g-grandfather, Ransom Wheeler,
gggg-grandfather, William Wheeler,
ggggg-grandfather, John Wheeler,
gggggg-grandfather, Thomas Wheeler.

Any of those names ring a bell? Both William and his brother Benjamin Wheeler came to Texas from Tennessee and many of the Wheelers in Texas are descended from Benjamin. I've researched both lines.

Have a great holiday!

Well, more good news/bad news! Edna is buried in MES, not the Masonic section. But, she does not have a stone. I took a pic of Arthur's but I see that's already on his site. I put the pic of the area, with Arthur's stone in the foreground, on her site. I'm sorry there wasn't more to find!

RE: Edna Whittet
Hi James, I have good news and bad new... I got a map of the masonic section. There is no plot #601. They only go up to about 200. I went to the Masonic section and looked for plot #60 and there were no Whittets there. (I even played dumb blonde and had two of the workers helping me!) BUT it does appear that there are more than 600 graves in the Masonic Eastern Star section. I've seen the Masonic section abbreviated as MAS and the Masonic Eastern Star section abbreviated as MES, which seems awfully close to me. So I will look there in the MES section tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed!

Hi! I noticed you have a photo request for Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland Maryland. I am preparing for a trip there Sept 8th and I'm planning on trying to fulfill as many of these as I can. Since this cemetery is so large (about 80,000 graves) it would help to have the section and plots of the burials. I have spoken to a lady at the cemetery named Carmelita Walker. She said she can't give the locations of these sites to me since they are not related to me but she said if you could give her a call at 301-568-5400 and tell her that you are a relative (or think you may be!) she can give it to you. Once we have this information it will be sooo much easier to find the grave and photograph it. If you are no longer interested in fulfilling the request for whatever reason, just let me know too so I can cross it off my list. Thanks!

Not a problem...I don't have any problem with you keeping the memorial at all. I just thought if you weren't related I'd like to keep him and his wife together. I think I told you in the request, but if not, she is my 3rd cousin 1X removed so really don't know much about her.
