RE: Wheelers in Burton Cemetery, Adams Co IL
Yes, I am the main Wheeler researcher of this line and I have been wanting to get accurate information; tombstones are all we have for the children mainly.

It appears though, but I can't verify it, that the Wheeler stones don't even give years. It looks like they give a breakdown of the age (x years, x months, x days) but since they don't bother to give the date of death we have to guess.

The mother of this family, Matilda Townsend Wheeler, has a stone that simply gives the year.

Thanks for your help.

Wheelers in Burton Cemetery, Adams Co IL
Hi, I was doing some updating to my memorials and I noticed you added photo to Scott Wheeler's grave.

I am in sore need of dates off of the Wheelers graves. I was unaware before that Wheeler sons (of William and Matilda) had separate stones, though the only one you added was for Scott Wheeler. The pics I have seen for their father William's stone have not been very good.

Would it be possible to get better pictures (or any at all, if these stones dont exist anymore) that show a date ? Right now the only two sons I have even birth dates for are George and Scott, since they are alive on the 1850 and 1860 censuses. I could also use a better picture, perhaps of all sides, of William the father's grave, since it appears to give an exact death date but I cannot make it out.

All of William Wheeler's sons died before adulthood, I am descended from his daughter Elizabeth Wheeler Morris. This would be a big help for me since I live in Ohio.
