I appreciate your response - glad to share any information that I have as well. The Amos Wheeler I'm researching was actually born around 1825 (not sure why I had 1880 in the post) - was married twice - first to Susan E. Beasley (if I'm remembering correctly) and then around 1880 to Margaret Pagget, daughter of Reason Pagget. The later wife is my gr gr grandmother.
I've had a lot of trouble tracking this Amos over the years - appears to be another Amos (New Hanover Co area) who was a contemporary but I'm told they were "definitely" not related ...
I believe these Wheelers were eventually from around Watha.
Any thoughts you have would be welcomed!
