Edna Lucinda Hooper was the oldest of 8 girls (Amanda, Mollie, Sarah, Nellie, Annie, Nora & Elsie). She was brought up in the Christian faith and fully gave her heart to the Lord at age 12 (1897) at Deer Creek Methodist Church. On Christmas Eve 1899, Edna married George Ezra Daniel Wheeler. George's brother Robert Cyrus Wheeler married his bride Liddia Lee Curtis the same day in a double ceremony led by Bro. Cyrus Curtis. First home was out in the Wheeler Town community, later they moved to the "old Ferby Turner farm," which was later owned by Mr. Herman Williams. From there, George built a home for his family on Deer Creek. Edna & George had 15 children, 12 who lived to adulthood. On Feb. 14, 1943 the Wheeler home burned to the ground and almost a month later Edna's husband passed away from stomach cancer on Mar. 7, 1943.
