Surnames: wheeler, william h
i am the great great grandson of William H Wheeler and ES Collins. William Wheeler was killed in 1892 in the Collins owned Mercantile store by A Mr Knighton. I have a copy of a news article from Dalhart that tells the story about Mr Knighton whom i believe was a founder of Channing - where Mr Wheeler served on the grand jury that indicted MR Knighton. Mr Knighton came into the store and shot Mr Wheeler for his part in the grand jury. WHat i would like to know is what the indictment was all about and what became of MR Knighton. Also, i do not have any family history beyond William H Wheeler and would like to know where he was born, married, etc. I most recently came across this information through my grandparents Mr and Mrs Guy H Wheeler but previous to this i never knew a thing about the Wheeler side of my family. I also have a vintage picture of a beautiful building that i believe was the hotel in channing that burned down around the turn of the century. my email address is terry.wheeler@tenethealth.com and my phone number is 713-614-6149.

I would like to help but without anyone's birth dates it is 'kinda tough.

Census records are helpful but most of the 1890 record burned in 1921 which would be the first record showing W H and E S Wheeler as a couple and at least 3 of their children.

Hopefully someone can take the time to go the the courthouse and find out if there was a trial regarding the indictment and charges against Mr. Knighton for the murder of William Wheeler. Texas did not require recording of deaths in 1892.

Since you also posted your query to Hartley county I found Guy H Wheeler in the 1900 & 1910 census record in Hartley county, mother listed as Bessie, which is a nickname for Elizabeth sometimes, and stepfather Henry W Eubank in 1910.

Guy is oldest known child born in 1885, one sibling born and died before 1900. My best estimate is E S Collins and Wm Wheeler married early 1880's and I did not find them as husband/wife in 1880 census and there are no early marriages for Hartley county found on the web.

In fact I find no matching Collins' female in 1880 or prior records. She was consistant on where her parents were from in the 3 records she was in.

http://www.rootsweb.com/~txhartle/

Guy Hamilton Wheeler registered for WW I Draft, 12 Sept 1918 in Hardeman County, listed Mrs. B S Wheeler of Channing, Hartley Co, TX as next of kin. He was born 28 June 1885.

There were no other Wheeler's counted in Hartley county in 1900 and no Collins' that looked potential, none in JP 2.

Just not able to determine how many of Guy's siblings were living in 1910 but I could not find a George R Wheeler in the area and no Alice's born appx 1887 listed in Hartley county. I also did not find George Wheeler in WW I Draft registration records.

Katie Price born June 1886 daughter of David N Price 11/1859 and Polly M Price age 36 in 1900 lived in JP 2, Hartley county in 1900, brother Milford born 1884.

wow, you really filled in some gaps. A few points to clarify. I believe the Collins clan moved to Channing at around 1890 from Denton County. E.S. Collins was a noted rancher, banker and merchantile store owner in Channing. He had a daughter named Grace who was my great grandmother. W.H Wheeler was shot down in his store (i have a great article from the 1892 Dalhart news detailing this if you want, i can send via email). His son, Guy Hamilton Wheeler subsequently married Grace Collins. One of the questions i have is why the name Hamilton? what i heard growing up was that we were related to Alexander Hamilton in some way. I have also been told that one of my wheeler relatives was hung as a horse thief (in the panhandle).

i have also found that Bessie may be Benie S Wheeler. tracking her down it it looks like she may have died in 1946 in Lubbock at the age of 86. This seems right given that the census of 1990 shows her birth date as 8/2/59.

What i have heard about G.H Wheeler is that he was born in ~Joshua Texas. I researched that area and found a William H. Wheeler in the Tarrant county (very close to Joshua) Precinct 1 census of 1880 who was born in ~1863. In those records the named father was John H. Wheeler. That would be the right age but again, who knows.

Terry, I read a reply you had posted regarding 1860 Johnson county census with info that Guy Hamilton was born in that county and find the following. I still did not find Miss Collins in the area if indeed that was her maiden name.

I realize that this is not proof positive that this is your William H Wheeler but if you find a marriage record in Johnson county would help, check your local library for publications for Johnson county in the genealogy dept.

Name: W. H. Wheeler
Home in 1880: Precinct 3, Johnson, Texas
Age: 23
Estimated birth year: abt 1857
Birthplace: Texas
Relation to head-of-household: Something other than a direct relationship (Other)
Father's birthplace: Iowa
Mother's birthplace: Tennessee
Occupation: Labourer

Other than places of birth and slight difference in age I would say Margaret E Grandberry and M E Wheeler are one and the same. I wonder if a will or probate was filed on H B Wheeler since he had considerable wealth in 1850 ?

George B and C J Granbury were not listed in Johnson county in 1860 but a different male born abt same timeframe in MS as C J was there.

George B Granberry was in Madison county MS in 1850, C J is Carey J. There is a town named Granbury in Hood county south of Johnson county.

Terry, I'm beginning to think that B S Wheeler was not a Collins and name was Benie not Bessie but what was her "real" first name ? Have you obtained her death certificate ?

Grace C Collins' father owned the mercantile store, Eugene S Collins, after 1900 and before 1910. He was farming in 1900. He must be the E S Collins that Mrs. B S Wheeler transferred to land to in 1919. There are several records showing E S Collins purchased land in Hartley county.

There were two Eugene Collins born appx 1872 MO, neither were in TX by

I thought that possibly one of Eugene's and Zera's daughters went to Gray county. "Jenkie" Collins married and moved to Pampa, Gray county. Zera was probably living with her son in law and dtr when she died.

I think you may have found the right link on W.H. Wheeler. There is a disconnect on his fathers birthplace. The 1880 census states his father was born in iowa and the 1860 cites vermont. There is also a disconnect on the mother which in the 1880 reference she was born in Tenn and the 1860 it cites NC.
