Edward Wheeler, b 1743 lived in Columbia County and his son, Daniel, b 1771, was born in
Columbia County, are my ancestors. Edward Wheeler lived in Canaan from about 1775 (maybe
as early as 1766) and at some point removed to New Lebanon, Columbia County where his will
was written (1819) and probated (1824). Edward was married a second time in Columbia
County some time after his first wife died (Thankful Crippen, died 25 Jan 1811). The
second wife was named Sarah according to his will. Daniel Wheeler married in Columbia
County about 1794 to Amanda, as their first son, Erastus D. Wheeler was born in Canaan,
Columbia County 28 Nov 1795. Daniel Wheeler and his family removed to Lebanon, Chenango
County, NY about 1796 or 1797 according to the history books in that county. I can not
find any birth information or marriage information for these individuals in Columbia
County. I have searched all the published church records that I can find. Does any one
have any idea where I!
can go to get additional information or clues where I might find this information?
There are seven other children that were born there as well. Thank you. Richard Wheeler
