Wheeler family in Bridgeport area

Classification: Query
Surnames: Wheeler
I'm seeking information on the parents and grandparents of Charles L. Wheeler. According to his Ohio obituary in 1906, he was born in Bridgeport, CT in 1827. His father was John L. Wheeler and his mother's maiden name was Mary Wheeler. According to the obituary, his father was in the War of 1812 and his father's father, J. W. Wheeler, was in the Revolutionary War. I'm trying to find which of the many John Wheeler's in the Bridgeport area were his family. I have a request in to the National Archives for the service record of a John Wheeler from the War of 1812 who shows his service area as Bridgeport. He was in the CT militia, Philo Evans regiment. John L. Wheeler removed from CT to Sandusky, Co., Ohio probably around 1832 and died there ca 1836 in what is now Elmore, OH.
