DEA. NATHANIEL WHEELER, son of Nathaniel Wheeler, was born in Sutton, Mass., in 1753. He married Mehitabel Haven. He came to Croydon in 1775, and died in 1840, at the age of eighty-seven years. He settled in the wilderness and cleared up what was long known as the ” Wheeler farm” in the southerly part of the town, since occupied by H. Jacobs. He was an extensive and thriving farmer, and a soldier in the Revolutionary war. He was mainly instrumental in building the once flourishing Church at Northville, in Newport, and was a consistent and worthy deacon of the same for many years. He was decided in his religious views, and gave much time and money for the support of the gospel. His strict integrity, singleness of purpose, and devotion to a religious life, gave weight to his word and example.
