James Carroll Wheeler (#46845419)
 member for 11 years, 20 days

I'm a descendant of Martha Ann Wheeler and her first husband, James Keller, through their son, Nolan Keller.

One of their daughters, Martha Elizabeth Keller, was my great grandmother who married Thomas Jefferson Poole, Sr. The Pooles are buried in the Cedarvale Cemetery in Bay City, TX, with other Poole family members and descendants.

I am currently working on the Keller genealogy and family history and would love to hear from other Wheeler and Keller relatives interested in genealogy, especially those who would like to share family history and letters. I encourage you to visit family where I am posting the Keller family genealogy and where others have posted the Wheeler family genealogy.

Frances Keller arrived in Matagorda County in 1826 from Woodville, MS. James Keller was one of his sons.

I am trying to find the early Keller grave site. I believe I have some directions to the grave site and will be contacting the current owner of the property.

Please contact me if you are interested...

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

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!
Tina Wheeler Sanders

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!

RE: Edna Whittet
Thank you for the information! I will do my best to try to locate them for you.

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!

RE: Memorial #28294189 Lorenz
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.

RE: John Salmon Mangum

Hi James,
My e-mail is I have found a lot of my husbands ancestors in the area... Geneology is a hobby for me and, I am trying to put albums together of my grown children's ancestors.. They don't seem to be very interested in dates, names & facts.. But, they like the stories.. I would like to know that the stories I leave behind are true, though.
On the story of John Salmon Mangum is that him & his son were hauling a wagon of something to sell. I think it was salt.. They were camping for the night on the Frio River.. When they saw a gang of indians riding up to them.. John S. told his son to hide under some brush & leaves.. John S. was killed by them.. But, he saved his son's life. That son was Nathaniel Thomas Mangum.. Who later married Josephine Brummitt and later had my husbands grandmother... So, not only did he save his son's life but, all the babies that were born afterward's.... including my 5 grown children, my 6 grandchildren &, my 2 gr. grandchildren...And, all the other families...

Edna Whittet
Hey James,

Please accept my humblest apologies, I had thought I'd seen Edna Whittet's stone next to Arthur's, but was mistaken. Cedar Hill's records indicate Arthur in Masonic section, plot 601, site 1 and Edna in the same plot at site 2, but when I went to Arthur's marker today, there are no markers on either side of Arthur's, so I fanned out and searched around the plot, still no luck. Perhaps Edna is buried there without a marker, I dunno. Hard to say with Cedar Hill, I've found in past searches that their records aren't always accurate.
Sorry I couldn't find it.

Peace, Lani

Hi James,

Yeah, if memory serves, I'm pretty sure I saw Edna there next to Arthur Whittet and I'll get her pic next trip up there, either tomorrow or Friday.

Peace, Lani
