Harriet Foster married Ebenezer Wheeler, the son of William and Hannah (French) Wheeler in 1794. Together, they had eight children: 1 son, Ransom Foster and 7 daughters, Harriet, Hannah, Laura, Almira, Delanah, Emilenda and Victorine.

Ebenezer, a Major in the War of 1812, died just a few months after their youngest daughter was born from a fever he contracted during the war. He was just 44 years old. Harriet raised her children alone and died at the age of 66 in Hancock, NY—the same town in which she had been born.
