Axey Mariah HONEYCUTT (b. abt. 1837), married John Henry WHEELER (b. 05 Nov 1836) in Yancey County on 18 Apr 1853. Long story short, 27 years and 11 children later, John Henry left Axey in about 1880 for Sarah Matilda Duncan Guthery, whom he finally married in 1890. Family lore says that when John Henry left, Axey took the 4 youngest children still at home and "went to Tennessee" to live for a while with their son Samuel Harrison Wheeler, who would have been about 16 or 17 at that time. Supposedly she returned to Yancey Co. at some point. No record has been found in Yancey Co. of a divorce for Axey Mariah and John Henry. Does anyone have any clues as to what happened to Axey Mariah Honeycutt Wheeler? Any help or clues would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
