Biographical Sketch of Col. Nathaniel Wheeler

COL. NATHANIEL WHEELER, son of Dea. Nathaniel Wheeler, was born May 10, 1781. He married Huldah Whipple, daughter of Aaron Whipple, and granddaughter of Moses Whipple, the honored father of the town. She died in 1833, leaving seven children. He subsequently married Lucy F. Freeman, of Lebanon, whom he survived but a short time. There were no children by this marriage. His farming operations were extensive, and his farm and stock were always well cared for and in good condition. For many years he kept one of the largest and best dairies in a town of good dairies. He took an active part in military and political affairs; and in the war of 1812 was the first man in town to volunteer as a private soldier, though holding a commission at the time. He was Representative in 1816, and Selectman for a large number of years. For half a century he was a devoted and worthy member of Masonic Fraternity. He died July 13, 1864, at Lebanon, where he had resided for a number of years. His intelligence, and clear, calm judgment, were among his most marked characteristics.
