* I learned the story of the Wheelers from Marshall R. Wheeler, of the University of Texas. He has published three books on the Wheelers so far. He also does drysophilia studies for the University of Texas, available on the Internet. The story centers on three Wheeler brothers, and how they connect to the Tye family.
* Joshua died leaving a widow, Sarah Wheeler. She moved to Whitley, Kentucky for help from the Tye family located there.
* Benjamin was a soldier in the American Revolution and moved to Bullitt County, Kentucky.
* John Wheeler Jr. lived in Madison County, Kentucky. He had two sons of note to this family, William Wheeler and James Wheeler who married Sarah Lowry on 11 Oct. 1825 in Madison County, Kentucky. James lived next to a Sarah Wheeler (widow of Joshua) in 1840 in Garrard County, Kentucky.
* William Wheeler married Sarah Adams on 07 Apr. 1817 in Madison County, Kentucky.
